My mother, 62 years of age has been suffering from dementia and depression since 2016. She was prescribed dveniz, daxid for depression and admenta (bds), aricep (ods) for dementia since september, 2016. The disease has progressed albeit slowly. But there had been behavioral changes specially repetitive behaviour, frequent fits of aggression etc. Because of the increased aggressive tendencies, her doctor asked to stop antidepressants in january 2020. aggressive behavior dwindled down after that. However it increased a bit since december 2020. Due to unavailability of the previous psychiatrist we had to consult a separate psychiatrist in february, 2021. He started a new drug, olanzapine 2.5 (ods). My mother started taking the drug since february 10th. However she started getting quite drowsy from the middle of march. So we had to visit the doctor on march 26th. He asked to stop olanzapine 2.5 and continue with aricep and admenta. She was more or less fine till last tuesday, 6th april. But suddenly from 7th april there was a total change in everything. It's almost like she's spellbound! totally lost and not being able to do basic daily activities. It's almost like her brain has been switched off. She's walking slowly, not being able to eat/ drink on her own. And since yesterday she's having trouble using the toilet too. Not being able to pass urine or stools. Is this because of the drug olanzapine? If so, then can some other drug be used to negate these side effects of olanzapine?

It is sad to convey but symptoms you suggested are of disease progression and not because of side effects of on going medications.

Hello doctor, age 26, male, 165 cm, 83 kg from age 15 I started getting this acne all over my back which has now spread all over. I also have fungal spots on my back, arm pits, groin and neck. Dermatologist gave candid drops, which gave only temporary relief. In 2014 august, I was given riconia silver vitamin tablet as a nutritional supplement, which after a week gave big side effects of insomnia, hypermobility, anxiety and panic attacks and ulcers and occasionally black spotted tools. Lost 10 kgs in 2 months. Doctor just gave me antacids and probiotics (vizylac). Slowly over a period of one year anxiety turned into depression and everything became normal. Again in 2019 july, I ate green leaf sambar, again got all the symptoms of hypermobility, hypermetabolism and anxiety came back. This time was given anti anxiety medication paroxetine 12.5 mg, worked like a charm. But my original disease is mysteriously undiagnosed. Whenever I eat fiber rich food like leafs greens or popcorn or take multivitamin supplement (mostly because of iron.) I get all the symptoms back. My c reactive protein is high (3.0).so I have some kind of inflammation going on. I suspect the iron and high fiber foods are triggering colitis. And I think I have systemic non invasive candida which has made my colon very sensitive and inflamed and any potential irritant triggers colitis of some kind. This is my guess. Also lately I have no motivation or interest in anything. What should I do?
