How much of an effect does the long term use of heavy drugs play in schizophrenia?

I am now 27, but through my teen years i used heavy amounts of meth, exstacy and LSD. I have been clean now for 7 years but i seem to have problems that resemble symptoms of schizophrenia, like hearing voices, seeing things out of the corner of my eye, on and off depression and feelings of worthlessness. They have been happening for the last 3 years on and off but they seem to be worse as of resent but they are still only happening once and a while. So i am wondering if its just risiduale from the drug use or if the drugs have twisted my brain towards a schizophreniacs type of brain? I mean should i really see a doctor or just take it with a grain of salt since it isnt an every day thing?

I hope you went to a doctor with your concerns because it sounds like you are dealing with heavy duty issues. You are smart to want to stay on top of this.
