Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Recent reports have raised the concern that clozapine increases the risk for diabetes mellitus. Accurate pharmacoepidemiologic data on whether such a hazard exists and its magnitude are needed to enable clinicians and patients to make proper treatment decisions about clozapine. I suggest you to consult your psychiatrist for more clear insight. Take care.

Side effects occur to all medications and sexual side effects may occur to Clozapine , that should not mean to stop medications if patient is responding to treatment. Please discuss with your doctor who prescribed Clozapine. Thanks

You are describing behaviours of a typical paranoid schizophrenia. The NIMHANS visit should have been followed up since they are very thorough. However, I quite understand your plight in terms of distance. Anyway, CBT is a must and must used in tandem with medication. The more a person with this disease with draws, the more internal they become. The internal world of a schizophrenic is a house full of crazy ideas and notions. This must be prevented at any cost. If she likes parties and functions, take her to many of them. Since she is comfortable with the parents, take her to places to visit wilfully to expose her to more social stimulus and thus get her out of her internal world: this is going to be key to recovery. There will be delusions of persecution and suspicion over everyone including family and other trusted ones. Paranoids are specifically tormented by abnormal fear. What they do however is that instead of dealing with that fear, they escalate anger over it and act violent. They are extremely sensitive to rejection or the anticipation of it. Their thinking can be quite illogical and distorted. They imagine everything with suspicion and withdraw into themselves. They must be put on medication and a lot of occupational therapy and intense psychotherapy are needed to mitigate the symptoms. I suspect that your daughter suffers from a severe case of rejection and many of the behaviours are indicative of one suffering the Rejection Issue.

anxiety and depression can best be treated successfully if along with medicines, you also take counseling. Medicines alone will not be fully effective. Our distorted thoughts are the root cause of stress, anxiety, depression. Counseling take care of our distorted thoughts and helps you to focus on the positives in your life. So, you should seek counseling for better results.
Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines.
Mix 4 drops of Holly + 4 drops of Impatiens + 3 drops of Vervain + 3 drops of White chestnut + 3 drops of Vine. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every night once before sleeping.
If any problems consult me online.
Dear, it is best not to depend on sleep medicines for sleep disturbance as in long run, they lead to dependency and increased
disturbance. Never rely on alcohol for sleep. Some people use alcohol to help them sleep, but that's not a good idea. At first, drinking alcohol may make you sleepy and help you fall asleep. But when you drink alcohol, you are more likely to wake up later in the night and have a hard time falling back asleep. This can leave you feeling tired the next day. The following tips help one to easily get into sleep:
a) have bath regularly in evening after coming from work or before going to bed.
B) do not engage mind in active work or stressful talking at night before bed time.
C) do not engage mind in too much of computer work in night before bed time (for example, do not do stock market work in night).
D) do not read or view illicit or pornographic material at any time preferably.
E) do not take heavy meals in night. Best is to have heavy breakfast, lighter lunch and lightest dinner to maintain stomach rhythm which affects sleep. Vegetarian diet is best for good sleep.
F) do not over engage mind in television in night.
G) do not smoke cigarette, chew tobacco, tobacco containing masala, or similar intoxicants which can disturb
rhythm of mind and disturb sleep cycle.
H) no tea or coffee in night (preferably cocoa and caffeine containing drinks should be totally avoided for best results).
I) listen to relaxing music and even then if you do not get sleep, then hear soothing stories or nice talks from our rich
vedic literature. You may stream audio music and talks.
J) read books which not only calm the mind but also nourish the thinking process, such as from our rich oldest vedic literature.
please get back to a psychiatrist nearby to get your father diagnosed as treatment resistant schizophrenia. The psychiatrist may prescribe sizopin again after few blood tests (if ok). That will be the medical document.
