My brother had problem of dependence on alcohol and weed so that we take him to hospital to remove such habitat of smoking and drinking. Doctor prescribe 21 days course to admit him medicine names were given in notes that were given by doctor. Now I want to ask that if he again started his habit then what effect happened on his body so that we know whether he started again his habit or not?

Hi he needs to be on regular psychotherapy sessions with a clinical psychologist near by. His symptoms are over confident more mentally alert lying tendency wide eyes or redness in eye etc. It is more of a mental illness then physical. Medicine will help him to get out of withdrawal phases n addiction but for constant cure he needs psychotherapy session's. Even he can join alcohol anonymous gps for addiction. He also n family counseling too required as how actually they should behave n talk to him.

I feel very depressed after a failure in my academics. So please suggest me some solution.
Feeling depressed for failure in academics at your age seems very less likely. It could be that you are not satisfied with your life achievements and that is making you feel low, sad and depressed, if i am not wrong. Depression can occur to anyone at any moment in life. It is treatable. You might need a short medicine prescription to get over your feelings of depression with counseling. Contact me personally if possible

You need to consult a psychiatrist. You seem to have classical anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is due to altered serotonergic system in the brain, and can very well treated with medications, All the best.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Schizophrenia - Know The Different Types & Ways Of Treatment!

Schizophrenia - Know The Different Types & Ways Of Treatment!

Schizophrenia affects over 1% of the world’s population and affects the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. In most cases, it is diagnosed when a person is between the ages of 16 to 25. This condition can be hereditary and is said to affect men more often than women. Schizophrenia is characterized by an inability to distinguish between real and imaginary which can lead to delusions, social withdrawal, hallucinations and other forms of social and occupational dysfunction.

Schizophrenia affects different people in different ways. On the basis of the type of symptoms exhibited, this disease has been categorized into 5 sub types. These are:

  1. PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIA: This type of schizophrenia is characterized by delusions and hallucinations that may make the person exhibit paranoid behaviour. These people often feel like they are being watched or followed and may have delusions of grandeur. They may also get angry quickly on minor issues and show signs of anxiety and hostility.
  2. DISORGANIZED SCHIZOPHRENIA: In such cases, the person may behave in ways that are difficult to understand or speak in broken sentences and have difficulty structuring a sentence. They may also display inappropriate behaviour and react in ways not suitable to the occasion. People suffering from disorganized schizophrenia may also neglect their personal hygiene.
  3. CATATONIC SCHIZOPHRENIA: People suffering from catatonic schizophrenia may swing between immobility and periods of rapid movement. They may stay quiet for hours or talk rapidly repeating everything they hear. These people have a high risk of harming themselves as they are usually unable to look after themselves and complete daily activities.
  4. UNDIFFERENTIATED SCHIZOPHRENIA: People suffering from this type of schizophrenia exhibit behaviour that fits into more than one type of schizophrenia. From time to time they may have hallucinations, suffer from delusions or display catatonic behaviour and disorganized behaviour or speech.
  5. RESIDUAL SCHIZOPHRENIA: Even though a person may not be currently showcasing any signs of schizophrenia, they are said to have residual schizophrenia. Such people need to have had at least one schizophrenic episode. These people may exhibit symptoms later or be in complete remission.

With schizophrenia, an early diagnosis can make treatment easier and hence if you notice anyone exhibiting signs of schizophrenia, you must advise them to seek medical help immediately.

Typical and Atypical Antipsychotic Agents

Commonly prescribed typical antipsychotics include:

  • Haldol (haloperidol)
  • Loxitane (loxapine)
  • Mellaril (thioridazine)
  • Moban (molindone)
  • Navane (thiothixene)
  • Prolixin (fluphenazine)
  • Serentil (mesoridazine)
  • Stelazine (trifluoperazine)
  • Trilafon (perphenazine)
  • Thorazine (chlorpromazine)

Commonly prescribed atypical antipsychotics include:

  • Abilify (aripiprazole)
  • Clozaril (clozapine)
  • Geodon (ziprasidone)
  • Risperdal (risperidone)
  • Seroquel (quetiapine)
  • Zyprexa (olanzapine)

Most psychotropic medications produce the best results when paired with some type of psychotherapy. Medication can be of great service in helping a person treat and overcome debilitating symptoms, but pills by themselves cannot address behaviors, emotions, and root causes of mental health issues. If you are prescribed an antipsychotic medication, please consider finding a therapist you trust to help you learn more about what you are experiencing and to help you develop coping strategies to improve the quality of your life.

Schizophrenia cannot be cured but it can be managed with a combination of typical or atypical medication and cognitive therapy. The latter can be in the form of self-help groups, housing and employment programs, counselling and therapy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
