Psychosis Questions

I'm suffering from psychosis for the last 4 years and consuming anti psychotics like risperidone, olanzapine, diazepam.actually reason for this problem is uncertainty in my love life. My girlfriend's family is not accepting us. That was the reason for psychosis. Last month I saw her and she is still ok with me and she looks so normal since when I see her first time. Today I saw her but I am unable to recognize her and she was looking like unknown person to me. Is there any problem with me because of medication? Her family is forcing her to marry her brother in law. Is there any problem in her like depression or any other? Totally I am confused. I am still loving her but unable to recognize that she is my girl. Kindly suggest me a better solution because I thought I have trouble with my mind. I am so scared about this thing. Is it any side effect of anti psychotics?

Hi. Good day. Experiencing uncertainty in relationship is a stressful situation. As you said her family is not accepting your relationship and forcing her to marry someone else. So it may be one of the reason of her changed behaviour. You can ask her clearly about this matter. You may take counseling and psychotherapy. It will bring clarity in your relationship. Counseling aims to help patients change their thinking patterns to develop a more positive outlook on life. Not only can this help to treat mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, but it can also help to clear the mind and make it easier to think straight, even when feeling stressed. For further assistance feel free to reach me online or through Lybrate chat.

I was diagnosed with acute transient psychosis when I was 12 years old. Now i'm.27 years old and taking mood stabilizers like dicorate 250 mg. I had few relapses like once in two year or once in a year from which I recovered with 3 or two months and after that my dosage was always kept at a maintenance dose. I'm currently working as a software engineer. My question is do I have to take this medicine lifelong? Is there any alternate medicines which can be used as a maintenance dose instead of dicorate cause I have gained weight because of this medicine.

Hello, need to consult to Dr. Before stopping any medicine or start any new medicine. The period of taking medicine is depending upon the severity of the illness. Regular intake of medicine and regular follow up with your psychiatrist always helps. I think whatever question is coming in mind regarding health or medicine issues ,need to write it down on paper so whenever you will have follow up with your doctor it's easy to discuss all the points with your psychiatrist and it will be helpful in recovery path too. I think daily exercise will help to control on weight gain. Thank you.

Hi ,i'm.27 years old working as a software engineer. I was diagnosed with acute transient psychosis (now bipolar/schizophrenia) when I was 14 years old. It happened when my grandmother died. I used to take encorate ,aripiprazole and combination of other mood stabilizers medicines. I had relapses once in a year once in a two year. My situation is improved over the period of time. Now i'm taking encorate 250 mg alternate days as a maintenance dose. My relapses happens usually when I don't get proper sleep. Is there any other way to cure the same illness if yes what can I do and will this be a lifelong issue for me? Can I stop the medicines as I take the maintenance dose of 250 mg dicorate on alternate days.

Dear lybrate-user, nice to know that your situation has improved. It is not that if you are sleepless, you relapse. The first sign of relapse, is sleeplessness. If you stop the maintenance dose of encorate, be prepared for a relapse. It will not occur as soon as you stop. It will occur in its routine timing, may be once in 1-2 years in a specific month. You need to know about you relapse timing by making a mood chart of all these 13 yrs. Otherwise also, you will know it, if you are sleepless for no reason. Identify a person close to you, may be your mother or sibling who knows your psychiatrist and your relapse. She/he has to be in charge of your treatment since you may not be willing for treatment during relapse. You can give advance directives about that identified person to decide on treatment, in case you lose your capacity during relapse.

What is serenace 0.25 mg used for? I was given this by my psychiatrist for depression and anxiety is it ok? Another psychiatrist told me this is for fear psychosis. I do not have fear psychosis. Please clarify I am very paranoid.

Seranace is basically for psychosis but dose for psychosis is always more than 5 mg in adults. The dose which is given to you is very low which is given for anxiety or sleep. However this dose doesn't help in depression. Still your psychiatrist is the best person to judge your condition based on your evaluation. You can discuss these concern with him. All the best.

It's an interesting question you have regarding sulpitac and drinking coffee. I actually ran a drug interaction between the two i.e. Amisulpiride and caffeine and there seem to be no interactions between the two. I am unsure why you would ask a question about a medication you have been taking for the last 5 years. I believe you should be able to ask any other questions you may have privately. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, an appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

I am 60 years old man. I am suffering from a unique problem for the last 30 years. I can't remain at a place alone. Means where no other person is present whom I can call. Whenever by chance I happen to be alone at some place where nobody is visible nearby, my heart starts beating hard and I feel breathlessness. I feel like dying till I see anyone near me. Due to this problem, I can't live alone and go to any place alone where no one is visible nearby. Due this fear I feel much depressed and I have to request someone to be with me when I am alone or going to some place out of city or away from population. Please tell me that is there any remedy for this problem or I have to live forever with this fear psychosis.

Dear Abhishek, Sorry for Virendra. I don't know what kind of psychosis he is suffering from. If it is schizophrenia, it needs long term tablets at appropriate dose and psychosocial rehabilitation methods to make him a useful person. It may be schizoaffective psychosis due to different phases of mind, In that case he need long term mood stabilizers also apart from antipsychotic tablets and rehab. Regular visits to a psychiatric social worker or half way or day care homes for psychosocial rehab will help him to have some amount of self esteem and self respect. The dosage of drugs need to be adjusted according to rehab plans.
