Do you capitalize Schizophrenic


I'm typing a report and I'm deeply confused because this site says not to capitalize schizophrenia, so does that goes for schizophrenic too.

According to APA guidelines, schizophrenia and schizophrenic should not be capitalized when used as common nouns.  Only proper nouns are capitalized (APA, p.102).
