The medications are fine, but your hallucinations are not controlled. So you need a revision of prescription, consult your psychiatrist. He will be able to help u. If all 4 years the symptoms have not remitted, with adequate dosage, there are medications for resistant hallucinations. All the best.

Its necessary to follow a healthy lifestyle as fat loss is a gradual process. There is no quick fix approach. Following a healthy diet which has optimal amounts of first-class proteins (dairy products, eggs, chicken etc) reduced carbohydrates (white rice, poha etc) & healthy fats (almonds. Walnuts etc) along with a structured​ exercise program that is balanced with weight training and cardio will surely help. Hormonal imbalances that can impede your rate of fat loss. Stay consistent & patient in order to achieve your weight loss goals. Kindly contact us to get customised diet & workout plan.

Hi, one of my close friend's mom is suffering from auditory hallucinations for the more than a week. Most of her talks/hearings are somewhat related to past conflict. Monday they met homeopathy/ayurveda and they suggested for ayurveda tablets/syrup (saraswatharistam and manasamithira vadagam). She was taking ayurveda tablets for 2 days. Since its getting worst and her health would not allow her to wait for few more days to see the response for homeopathy/ayurveda tablets, wednesday night they met psychiatric in chennai. Doctor suggested (psychosis) for a tablet 'olimelt 5 mg' at night (8-8: 30 pm) for 20 days. If she is not getting sleep still, then they suggested to take 'zolfresh 5 mg' at around 11: 30 pm. 1st day (wed night): took olimelt 5 mg around 10 pm, slept around 1 am and woke up around 8 am. 2nd day (thurs night): thursday day time slept for 30 mins. Took olimelt around 8: 45 pm, did not get sleep till 10: 10, started blaberring/crying after that. So gave zolfresh 5 mg, then slept from 12 am-8 am. 3rd dy (friday night-yesterday): friday day time didn't sleep, took her outside. Took olimelt around 8 pm, had meditation for 45 mins, slept around 10: 15 pm. Woke up by 12 am, and blaberring for an hour. So gave zolfresh 5 mg by 1 am, then slept from 2 am till 8: 30 am. Would like to request experts opinion on the below. - can she take both psychiatric tablet and ayurveda medicines together? Would it help for faster recovery? - any other suggestion for faster recovery (like food habits, yoga, meditation, oil bath. Etc)? - in google, its mentioned that "zolfresh 5 mg" has a side effect of hallucinations. Understand this tablet is for deep sleep, but have a fear about this side effect bec. Our main problem is itself hallucinations only - we are trying our level best to divert her, but sometimes it works, most of the times don't. What to do for that - based on above day by day things, are we in a positive direction or we need to speed up the treatment by getting second opinion? How long her body/brain will take to respond for these tablets? When can we expect the slight positive change on this health issue? - there are other suggestions like consulting neurologist, siddha (parallel treatment), acupuncture. Do you recommend any of those at this point of time or wait for sometime to see the response for current medicines? - which treatment would be the best one for this kind of health issue? Any prompt response would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You need to have a valid prescription and regular review when taking olimelt (olanzapine). There are also many other good companies if the particular brand is not available, consult your psychiatrist for the same. Periodic weight measurement, blood sugar and lipid levels need to be monitored. Usually this medicine is used for initial control and later changed to others, depending on the condition. Do not keep giving the medicine, thinking it is only for sleep on your own. Hope this info helps.
