Hi lybrate-user, it's not a good idea to self diagnose. This can only be done by a trained clinical psychologist or psychiatrist. You can not take the medication your friend is taking, it is for the different type of symptoms. I would suggest you to meet a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist and let them decide what is a good treatment for your problem. You might get better without taking medications as well. Thanks.

I was taking sanlaz 5 mg. Which is not available, replacements are aripiprazole 5 mg and ozapin md 5 mg. Which one is advisable. With sanlaz 5 mg, I was taking.

Sanlaz contains olanzepine. Ozapin contains the same and would be suitable. Aripiprazole is a different medicine and I would not recommend switching to that without consulting your doctor.

It is not good continue medicine. It leads side effects. Better to come out from medicine. For depression psychological counselling will helps very much. I think you never attend for counselling. Strong counselling sessions are required. Use the medicine whenever you feel normal then leave it. It is best as soon as possible you should come out from the medicine. Years together you use your mind addicted to medicine. Suppose in future you cannot sleep properly without medicine. It is always better to come out from the medicine. Better to come out from yourself. Share the internal feelings and depressive thoughts to your close friends and family members. Better to change yourself. Control your depressive thoughts. If not possible yourself take the help of psychologist. Do not depend on medicine. Must and should conditions only we go to medicine. Better to come out yourself from this stage. It is always best. Ok best of luck.

Dear, paranoid schizophrenia also called schizophrenia, paranoid type is a sub-type of schizophrenia. The clinical picture is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

It is a very good drug having both antidepressant and antipsychotic properties. You have to work with your psychiatrist by expressing your symptoms during review, what was reduced and what has not to help him get you into remission. Lack of motivation is a part of depression which can also be treated, also ask him for CBT from a clinical psychologist which will hasten recovery.

Hi Sir, I have been taking olanzapine 2.5 once daily for last 3 years along with my antidepressants. My doctor now discontinued it as it was (perhaps) affecting my mood adversely. So how much time does it take for olanzapine to get out of my system completely?

My husband was using marijuana for past 15 years, now he planned to quit. But the withdrawal symptoms are scary. He was not able to sleep and became very aggressive, infact turned anti me. He often wake up in night and hits me. He pu all clothes in water including pillows whatever I am using. Not sure what it indicates. We consulted a doctor he suggested to give ozapin once and suprabenz twice a day. I am not sure whats going on! I want to support him and bring my life back to earlier time. What should I do to support him?

You should immediately contact nearest psychologist or take an online appointment, your husband is in phase where he needs medication and psychological support to reduce withdrawal symptoms. Standard treatments involving medications and behavioral therapies may help reduce marijuana use, particularly among those involved with heavy use and those with more chronic mental disorders. The following behavioral treatments have shown promise: cognitive-behavioral therapy: a form of psychotherapy that teaches people strategies to identify and correct problematic behaviors in order to enhance self-control, stop drug use, and address a range of other problems that often co-occur with them. Contingency management: a therapeutic management approach based on frequent monitoring of the target behavior and the provision (or removal) of tangible, positive rewards when the target behavior occurs (or does not). Motivational enhancement therapy: a systematic form of intervention designed to produce rapid, internally motivated change; the therapy does not attempt to treat the person, but rather mobilize his or her own internal resources for change and engagement in treatment. Currently, the fda has not approved any medications for the treatment of marijuana use disorder, but research is active in this area. Because sleep problems feature prominently in marijuana withdrawal, some studies are examining the effectiveness of medications that aid in sleep. Medications that have shown promise in early studies or small clinical trials include the sleep aid zolpidem (ambien®), an anti-anxiety/anti-stress medication called buspirone (buspar®), and an anti-epileptic drug called gabapentin (horizant®, neurontin®) that may improve sleep and, possibly, executive function.
