What are long term side effects of antidepressants like amilite plus and fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, etc to the brain?

Dear lybrate-user, instead of worrying about the long term side effects that may come may not come, think about the beneficial effects of these tablets on your quality of life. Please be on regular follow up with your psychiatrist who will be on t...

Hi, 60+ year old woman is suffering from auditory hallucinations since march. She has been taking 'olimelt 10 mg' for 3 months now (along with zapiz 0.25 mg-1 month, ativan 1 mg-last 2 months) as per psychiatric doctor suggestion (psychosis). Liver test, blood test have been taken, its normal. Earlier she used to hear in the day time also, but nowadays only at night time she is hearing that too when she is about to sleep or early morning/if she wakes up at mid-night. Some of the other symptoms are, - suddenly crying at times (politely) - lack of concentration/focus - not speaking with anyone freely. Just 2/3 words, thats it - mild forgetfulness (small things like at times forget to switch off gas stove.) - mood swing like sometimes feel low/depressed -> can judge by looking at her face need experts advise on the below please. - all of the above are symptoms of psychosis? Any other medical test recommended for further analysis as per your experience? - can she take both psychiatric tablet and ayurveda/homeo medicines (saraswatharistam, manasamithira vadagam) together, bec. She wanted to reduce allopathy tablet intake for long run? - any other suggestion for faster recovery (like food habits, yoga, meditation, oil bath. Etc) any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Dear lybrate-user, 60 plus years women with recent onset psychosis need many other tests to rule out dementia. Usually psychiatrists don't diagnose dementia for the first 3 months. Now that 3 months will be over soon, follow up with your psychiatr...

This is too much… I have been diagnosed with the following mental disorders by psychiatrists from bangalore. 1) I am having 2 mood disorders (major affective depressive disorder, single episode and bipolar 1 disorder, most recent episode) 2) I am having psychotic disorder (grandiose delusional disorder) 3) I am having obsessive compulsive disorder (mild trichotillomania) 4) I am having adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood. 5) I am having personality disorder (moderate cluster b traits, schizotypal personality disorder, premorbid personality disorder) 6) I am having anxiety disorder in conditions classified elsewhere. From december 2020 to june 2021. I had undergone 10 psychotherapy sessions (via phone). Meanwhile, I also contacted various suicide prevention helplines via gmail and phone. And as per the instructions given by psychiatrist. I had completed the medications ,[ antidepressant (escitalopram) and antipsychotic (olanzapine) ] treatment for 46 days (january 2, 2021 to february 18, 2021). And then I stopped the medications by the permission of the psychiatrist. And then the psychiatrist told me to do cbt therapy. I completed 8 weeks of cbt (cognitive behavioural therapy) sessions on 20th may 2021. But the doctor said medications cannot alter the behaviour and even lots of cognitive behavioural therapy sessions will not give the desired result. You only tell…then why is the doctor told to start medications and therapy if they only are saying afterwards that there is no approved cure for the above mental disorders? Why did they play with my life so politely? Then the clinical psychologist from nimhans told me to watch comedy shows like tom and jerry to eliminate negative/suicidal thoughts. Then for almost 1 week I used to watch tom and jerry and my life was smooth….then I came across to the last emotional episode of tom and jerry in which both of them commits suicide by sitting down in the middle of railway track because of love-failure. Their love-interest married to someone else. So, now should I avoid watching tom and jerry for safety reasons? And, the clinical psychologist also advised me not to do meditation right now because…i think she may have told me because if I get obsessed with meditation then I might perform mahāsamādhi yoga. It’s a natural process where people have left their body consciously. It is the peak of yoga.

Hello. My wife has been taking a prescription medication called petril beta 20 to treat her anxiety. She is better and would like to stop this medication. Can this medication be stopped by lowering the dosage and eventually stopping completely? We are planning to consult our doctor about this but looking for some clarification here too.
