I suggest you meet with a counselor and deal with some stress-related issues. I feel these are the causes of excess urination. If you are frightened chronically, you will tend to have excess discharge. Anyway, you should always work in tandem with a therapist along with medication to develop skills and techniques to favour a good life. That I suspect is missing in yoru recovery program and could have prevent the stress-induced urination.

My wife is taking clozapine 50 mg along with Amisulpride 100 mg for 3 years for Schizophrenia. She doesn't want to have the Blood Tests reqd for checking the WBC Level. I am having apprehension and fear of for her having neutropenia/Agranulocytes now or later of her taking Clozapine 50 for taking such a long time without having Blood Tests. Kindly Help by advising what to do.

It is compulsory to undergo regular blood test (WBC) when on clozapine. If she does not do, she has to be compelled or the medication, changed. Chance of agranulocytosis is 1% and it is the protocol to do, else no other option, but to change medication. All the best.

Prolactin is the hormone that stimulates milk production by the breasts. The normal prolactin level is < 20 ng/ml. In most women the tumors are detected when they are small (microadenomas) and the prolactin level is only moderately elevated (30 - 300 ng/ml. High levels of prolactin may mean that the pituitary gland is making excess prolactin for unknown reasons (idiopathic hyperprolactinemia). Other conditions that can cause high prolactin levels include pregnancy, liver disease (cirrhosis), kidney disease, and hypothyroidism. MRI is needed to find out the cause and Hyperprolactinemia may occur in patients receiving amisulpride at low dose of 50 mg/day and results in galactorrhoea, amenorrhea and sexual dysfunction. The symptom ameliorates on withdrawing the drug, switching to non-prolactin-elevating drugs, and timely management with dopamine agonist.

hello I am 17 years old male person .i am suffering from some disorder which I do not know correctly ,it may be depression or psychosis .Now I am going to explain my symptoms points wise. This problem started exactly 2 years before. Firstly before 2 years I entered into 10th class with change of my section into a topper class slowly my happiness decreased day to day sadness increased ,day by day my focus and concentration decreased .once upon a time I used to get good marks and high ranks I entered into toppers class then slowly my marks also decreased ,i was not able to focus and concentrate on studies ,cannot getup early in the morning for studies but before I used to study at 1: 00 am in the morning but now those habits all ruined. Slowly day by day I became failure ,i cannot used to understand any lessons ,studies ,classes ,it is all about like my brain had stopped working I thought. I did not even get memories, thoughts,cannot imagine, focus,concentrate ,enjoy ,no laugh ,no cry, no sadness, no happiness, no feelings mainly ,no proper memory power. Like this I have time passed for 5 months. Then one day I tried and did hard work to getup early at 1 am in the morning again and woke up and studied crazily like just reading but not understanding and something like by hearting method for the next day exam .and later appeared for the exam but same situation ,cannot understand the questions ,but slowly slowly I attempted small questions by recalling answers then suddenly I got a feeling like sudden flow of blood into brain I thought my brain started working .yes ,it really started ,suddenly I became active my memory returned ,my thoughts started, my feelings started, my imagination started, my happiness also started then ,quickly I started attempting the questions in no time .exam finished results came I passed in a high rank rank i.e state 6th I thought that this change happened due to my studying at 1 am the before day. So again I started reading and studying books at 1 am everyday. But it gone reverse my brain got slowed day by day ,my 10 th public exam came near ,and a new problem started as like before my brain got stopped for some time during the school time and during small exams then immediately I informed my father about this and within no time we consulted a psychiatrist exactly one day the public exams ,so he given clonazep, and amisulpride tablets ,with that I managed some what during the exams and completed or written the exams with so much hard work, one thing I forgot to mention is that some songs are used to play continuously in my mind and also im itself singing that songs in my heart ,and also during the exam time ,if I not sing songs in my heart the writing of exams may become difficult because without that songs ,i am not getting thoughts and the answer to write. Finally I got 9.7 gpa points in my exams but the doctor changed my course and given another tablets named schidon plus hcl and amisulpride tablets .this is summer holidays time .i used to get more sleep and drowsiness, my brain day by day became weak and suddenly one day I forgot to swallow the the tablets then brain again stopped working slowly ,also next three days I did not take the tablets because I went out of station for a function in village. Then I returned home and also taken tablets but no change immediately I informed my psychiatrist that my brain stopped again. I thought that this total negative change is due to the tablets he given (schidon plus hcl means risperidone and trihexyphenidyl hcl and amisulpride). So I changed many doctors also consulted a psychologist but my brain did not started working upto now it is 2 years upto now .i had left the college 1 year due to this problem ,i forgot to mentioned one thing that in this last one year my brain worked but only one day exactly 20 hours the reason behind this is due to that I had taken schidon plus hcl and amisulpride for 40 days exactly then suddenly we changed doctor and suddenly tablets also changed ,i started new tablets (stalopam and amisulpride tablets) then immediately after taking tablets I got the same feeling as a sudden flow of blood into the brain and same situation brain again started working ,my feelings started, my thoughts started, my happiness started, my imagination and all started but after 20 hours it stopped working due to end of tablets reaction effect. So this is the long story and upto now I have taken 6 ect sessions. But no improvement at all .so what should I do now?

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,
