Schizophrenia - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a mental disease that generally appears in a person in early childhood or late adolescence. This mental disorder is characterized by hallucinations, delusions, and several other cognitive impairments. Schizophrenia can be a lifelong struggle for people affected with this disease.People suffering from this mental disorder may hear sounds and voices that are not there in reality. Some patients suffering from schizophrenia can feel and even convince themselves that others are reading their minds, plotting against them or controlling how they are thinking.

Schizophrenic patients often remain withdrawn and feel distressed or even act fanatically at times.

People living with schizophrenic patients often find hard to understand what the patient is talking about. In certain instances schizophrenic patient’s remains completely still, without taking for days.On other occasions, schizophrenic patients, when they seem to feel fine, may start explaining what they are truly thinking about.It is a very true fact that the effects of this mental disease reach far beyond the patients themselves. It also affects their friends, families and the society.A sizable proportion of schizophrenic patients have to rely on others for their daily sustenance, since they often become unable to hold any job or take care of themselves.Many schizophrenia patients also resist their treatments as they feel that they are normal, and there is nothing wrong with them.

What Doctors say about Schizophenria :

However, with proper treatments schizophrenic patients can also lead a productive life. But they are very few, since most of the schizophrenic patients have to cope with their symptoms throughout their lives.In many cases this mental disorder develops so slowly that the patient doesn’t even get the chance to know it, that they are schizophrenic for many years. Nevertheless, there are also many sufferers of this illness where they have schizophrenic all of a sudden.This disease affects approximately 1% of the global population. Experts on this disease say that this mental malady is probably several illnesses masquerading as one. Many others also say that schizophrenia may be the result of impaired neuronal development in the fetus’ brain, which later on in their lives emerges as full blown illness.

There are several evidences that suggests that environmental factors and genetic factors both acts together in bringing about this tragic and interminable disease. Which means, that the condition has and congenital inherited element, but it is also significantly triggered by environmental factors upon the patient.People who have no history of schizophrenia in their family, have less than 1% chance of getting affected by this illness, compared to people with a history of schizophrenia among their patients, where the risk is as high as 10%.

Some of the experts on this disease suggest that imbalance of a neurotransmitter known as dopamine, is involved in the onset of this mental disease. However, other neurotransmitters such as serotonin can also be involved in heralding this disease.

Schizophrenia - 5 Types & Their Signs!

When you hear the word “schizophrenia”, the first thing that comes to mind are those serial killers shown on the TV or you call it split personality. But that is not the true meaning of it. It is not split personality or some kind of violent illness. Schizophrenia is a severe chronic mental illness which makes it difficult to differentiate between what is real and what is false.

As this is a mental illness, you will not be able to see any changes physically. You need to understand the symptoms of schizophrenia in order to know if a person is suffering from this problem. There are different kinds of symptoms that are used for diagnosing schizophrenia, but they all differ from person to person. Also, the symptoms that you see now, may not be seen later as the disease progresses. There are different types of schizophrenia and each has different symptoms.

Here is a list of the different types of schizophrenia and the most predominant and significant symptoms of each type.

  1. Paranoid Schizophrenia: People suffering from paranoid schizophrenia are characterized by strong auditory hallucinations and of being persecuted. However, they are very normal and function normally. But they are not ready to discuss their feelings openly and the symptoms are not observable. Other symptoms include anger, hostility and disorganized speech.
  2. Disorganized Schizophrenia: As the name suggests, people with disorganized schizophrenia exhibit disorganized thoughts. Delusions and hallucination may not be seen in this type of schizophrenia. The behavior of the affected person is quite disorganized or it is difficult to understand what they are saying. In fact, some emotions exhibited by the affected person are hard to understand or they are not at all relevant to the current situation. Their daily routine and activities will also be affected.
  3. Catatonic Schizophrenia: People with catatonic schizophrenia are characterized by increased or decreased movement. This symptom actually varies from person to person. Some people stay at a place for a long time without any kind of movement and some people keep moving for hours and do not stop. They do not speak for hours and sometimes they keep repeating the same thing over and over again. This has to be treated immediately as they will not be able to manage even their daily routine with this kind of behavior.
  4. Undifferentiated Schizophrenia: Undifferentiated schizophrenia is a condition where the symptoms do not fall into any of the above three types. You will also be able to observe hallucinations, delusions, anger, disorganized speech or catatonic behavior.
  5. Residual Schizophrenia: As the name suggests, it is the residue of schizophrenia behavior, but it is less severe as compared to the past. Delusions, hallucination and disorganized speech may still be present but compared to the past, the patient would be doing better.

Autism & Schizophrenia - What Is The Difference?

Both schizophrenia and autism are considered to be neurological disorders resulting from atypical neural development, occurring due to a variety of causes. Both these disorders have a genetic predisposition that may be due to environmental factors. However, there are a few basic differences between the two disease conditions.

Autism is also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by a spectrum of abnormal behaviour. They include persistent deficits in social communication and interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities.

Signs of autism in babies

  1. By 6 months - No social smiles or other warm, joyful expressions; limited to no eye contact
  2. By 9 months - No sharing of vocal sounds
  3. By 12 months - No babbling or use of gestures to communicate; not responding to one’s name when called
  4. By 16 months - No use of words
  5. By 24 months - No meaningful or two-word phrases

Signs of autism at any age

  1. Avoids eye contact and wants to be alone
  2. Finds it difficult to understand other people’s feelings
  3. Speaks very less or has delayed language development
  4. Echolalia - Repeats words or phrases
  5. Cannot accept change in routine or surroundings
  6. Performs repetitive behaviours like flapping or rocking
  7. Has restricted interests and hobbies
  8. Reacts unusually intense to sounds, smells, tastes, lights, colours etc.

Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is a neuropsychiatric disorder that begins during late adolescence and early adulthood. It is characterized by delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech and behavioural changes that cause social and occupational dysfunctions.

Signs of Schizophrenia

  1. The symptoms of schizophrenia are usually observed between ages 16 and 30, such as e.g. delusions, hallucinations, thought disorders, movement disorders etc.
  2. Delusions are false beliefs of the patient that may take many forms like delusions of persecution or grandeur. You may feel somebody is controlling you or may think you have extraordinary powers and abilities.
  3. Hallucinations are when the patient hears voices more than seeing, feeling, tasting or smelling random things, which are not actually there.
  4. Thought disorders are when the person jumps from one subject to another for no logical reason.
  5. Some negative symptoms i.e. these are symptoms which are normally present in a healthy individual, but are absent in a schizophrenic patient. E.g. absence of facial expressions, lack of motivation etc.
  6. Cognitive symptoms affect the individual’s thought process. They can be positive or negative based on their expression. E.g. poor ‘executive functioning’ which deals with the ability to understand information and make decisions using them, finding it difficult to focus etc.
  7. Although both Autsim spectrum disorder and schizophrenia are interlinked in their causes and neurological background, the symptoms for each disorder are different.

Schizophrenia - Different Modes Of Treatment That Are Followed!

Schizophrenia - Different Modes Of Treatment That Are Followed!

Are you aware of the schizophrenia and the adverse effects it inflicts on a person? Schizophrenia is a chronic and extremely severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, behaves, and feels. Schizophrenia patients seem like they are not aware of reality. The condition requires lifelong treatment, even after the symptoms leave. There are various types of treatments, which are used for schizophrenic patients. The treatment is usually guided by an experienced psychiatrist.

The various modes of treatments are as follows:
Medications: Medications are very important for the treatment of schizophrenia, and antipsychotic drugs are most commonly used. They help in managing the symptoms by affecting dopamine. Treatment using antipsychotic drugs aims at managing the symptoms effectively. Antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs are also used for treatment. Several weeks are required for these medicines to show results. Most of the medications used for schizophrenia treatment are associated with severe side effects and are thus avoided by many people. The patient’s cooperation with treatment determines the choice of drug.

  • First generation antipsychotics: These medicines are associated with adverse neurological side effects, such as the possibility of developing tardive dyskinesia, which is an irreversible movement disorder.
  • Second generation antipsychotics: These medicines are preferred because of the lower risk of adverse side effects on the body than first generation medicines.

Psychological interventions: When the patient’s psychosis decreases, psychological and psychosocial interventions are required. They include the following:

  • Individual therapy: Psychotherapy is important for normalizing a patient’s regular thought patterns. Learning about ways to deal with stress, and identifying warning signs can help patients manage their condition better.
  • Social skills training: This aims at improving a schizophrenic person’s social interactions, communication and his/her ability to take part in daily activities.
  • Family therapy: Family therapy is important for educating the families of schizophrenic patients about the disorder, and let them know about the ways to deal with it.

Vocational rehabilitation and supported employments: Most people with schizophrenia need some kind of daily living support. Programs are offered by several communities and self-help groups for helping schizophrenic people with housing, jobs, crisis situations. With proper treatment, most schizophrenic people manage to deal with their symptoms and illness.

Hospitalization: During emergency or crisis periods of extreme symptoms, a patient may need to be hospitalized to get proper nutrition, basic hygiene, sufficient sleep, and safety.
Electroconvulsive therapy or ECT is carried out for schizophrenic patients who do not respond to drug treatment. This therapy is also beneficial for patients who have got depression. It is recommended for you to consult a doctor on experiencing any symptom of schizophrenia. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Paranoid Personality Disorder - 12 Signs A Person Is Suffering From It!

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Allahabad

The mind is a very intricate organ and controls the entire body functioning with great precision. Any small change in its wiring would mean changes in the way a person functions, including changes of emotions and feelings.

There is a group of personality disorders known as “cluster A” personality disorders. One of the most common forms in this is a paranoid personality disorder, also known as PPD. The onset of the problem is in early adulthood and men are more likely to have this condition as compared to females. People with paranoid personality disorder are very odd or have eccentric ways of thinking. The most common way of thinking is suspicion with no reason to do so.

Symptoms:

  1. They are always on watch or guard and believe that others are out to harm or demean them.
  2. Their belief and distrust are often unfounded, and they find it very difficult to form close relationships, either at work or at home.
  3. There is always a doubt in terms of other people’s commitment and trust, and believe that others are out to use them and often end up deceiving them
  4. Find it very difficult to confide in people, and think the information they tell others may be used against them.
  5. They are always known to hold grudges from past experiences and find it very difficult to forgive others
  6. They are not open to criticism and are extremely sensitive to what others think of them or tell them
  7. Try to read between the lines and interpret more than the obvious
  8. They are very quick to retaliate and think others are constantly attacking what they say and/or do
  9. There is a constant thread of suspicion especially of their spouses or partners, which would be completely unfounded, and add unwanted strain on the relationships
  10. Refrain from forming close relationships and keep some distance even in close relationships. They are generally cold and can be jealous and controlling of their near and dear ones
  11. Firmly believe that their thoughts and words and actions are always right and do not believe in conflict resolution. They are usually argumentative, hostile, and stubborn
  12. They always present as tense and cannot relax very easily

Causes: There is usually a past history of emotional or physical abuse, which is unresolved, leading to these symptoms. Hypnosis, which is often used to diagnose the condition, is very helpful in identifying the cause.

Diagnosis: There are specific assessment tools and questionnaires which are useful in confirming the diagnosis.

Management: Psychotherapy where the person is taught to manage the above feelings and taught to communicate and cope with others. This is often combined with antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and antipsychotics.

Hallucinations - Who Is Likely To Suffer From Them?

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Allahabad
Hallucinations - Who Is Likely To Suffer From Them?

Be it sound or smell, vision or touch or taste, our senses help us experience the world around us. The brain always responds when there is a stimulus. So, we see an object, hear a sound, feel something, etc. When there is no stimulus, but there is still a response, it is hallucinations. This sense of something which is not real is by definition hallucinations. This could be related to past experiences or our deep inner feelings and is much more common than we think.

Causes:
Most psychiatry disorders including schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and other forms of dementia start off as hallucinations.

  1. Migraines usually are accompanied by visual aura.
  2. Brain tumors can cause different types of hallucinations depending on where it is located and the corresponding area it is affecting.
  3. Epilepsy also depends on the type of seizure, different hallucinations would be seen.

Types:

  1. Visual: Seeing things which are not there, for instance, flashes of light, insects crawling on self or another person, someone standing where no one is there, etc.
  2. Auditory: The affected individual could hear voices coming from inside himself or from outside. These voices could be giving instructions to the person, calling out to him/her, or be talking to each other.
  3. Olfactory: Again, these imaginary smells could be coming from within the person or from an external source.
  4. Tactile: The affected person could feel a rush of hot air being blown, feeling of insects crawling on the body, feeling of being tickled, etc.
  5. Gustatory (taste): When something is eaten, it could taste like something completely different, which is very odd. This could be related to some past experience in some people.

Hallucinations are initial symptoms of the onset of psychiatric disorders. In fact, most of these are insidious in onset, where it cannot be exactly identified when the disease began. Therefore, if a person has hallucinations for prolonged periods, and if they are progressing, it is best to get more testing done.

Other symptoms include:

  1. Confused thoughts
  2. Disorganized speech
  3. Incoherently speech
  4. Reduced social interactions

Who is likely to experience hallucinations?

  1. A person who gets very anxious, even about small things, a fear of losing touch with reality
  2. People with migraine headaches. These suffer visual hallucinations very commonly and may also have auditory hallucinations.
  3. Children who are having a fever. They might see or hear something which is not real.
  4. People on illegal drugs like amphetamines, LSD, and Ecstacy. In fact, this is what creates addiction.
  5. Sudden withdrawal from alcohol or drugs. It is always advisable to withdraw from illicit drugs under supervision as hallucinations are very common.

Popular Questions & Answers

Dear Sir, My daughter, aged 27 years is suffering from schizophrenia for the last 11 years and is under regular treatment at PGI, Chandigarh since September, 2007. She was prescribed various set of medicines during the course of treatment. She is presently taking Skizoril 200 mg and Tryptomer 25 mg daily. As the symptoms persist, doctors say that she would have to take medicines indefinitely. Though my daughter is average in studies, she spends maximum time glued to books (just staring) and often looses cool on the petty issues, if things are not going as per her liking. She is very introvert and has no friends, even girls. She used to go to her educational institution alone and did not have any interaction with her classmates. She is M.A. In English. She does not like watching T.V. Programmes and using mobile (smart phone). She confines herself to her room and did not like sharing meals in dining room in the company of family members. Sometime she speaks with herself. She is self centered and sometimes envies even her siblings, when she observes them to be getting favorable treatment or they are excelling in their studies and other activities. She loves eating fast foods and enjoys travelling in the company of parents but not with others. She enjoys attending social gatherings like wedding parties. She gets irritated often and do not hesitate to speak loudly and makes ungraceful gestures to parents. She is lazy by nature and avoids doing even petty household works like cooking, washing and ironing clothes etc. She is very casual about her appearance and is not fascinated by good dresses. She often suspects her old classmates and others for conspiring against her. She also suspects her mother and thinks that she (mother) is always conspiring against her. Nevertheless, she never forgets to bring gifts for her on her birthday, mother’s day etc. She is a confused lot and her long and prolonged allopathic treatment has not brought any favorable results. Please guide, whether alternative therapies like CBT, ECT, meditation, Homeopathic treatment etc. Could treat her completely or partially. I discussed about these with her doctor (senior consultant of the rank of Associate Professor) at P.G.I. Chandigarh but he said that these are not effective therapies. Clozapine therapy worked very well for few years but now it's effect is getting reduced. My daughter has gained weight and has become dull. She has lost interest in every thing except eating. She had stopped reading newspapers and had lost interest in preparing for competitive exams. Etc. She has become quarrelsome and in fact has become a big problem for family as every one is disturbed by her behavior. Doctor (her consultant) at P.G.I. Chandigarh do not offer any alternative therapy and only advises for increasing the dose of clozapine. I took her to NIMHANS Bangalore for better treatment. She was examined thoroughly by the senior doctors there and I was advised to get her admitted in the ward (one attendant allowed) for 15 days to one month for observations and further tests. The doctor has prescribed clozapine 200 mg and Sizodon 3 mg (my daughter was earlier on Sizodon 15 mg for three years and she developed tardive dyskinesia and as a result she was prescribed clozapine). NIMHANS doctors said that alternative therapies would also be tried once she starts taking treatment from them. I am in a dilemma since Bangalore being a far off place it would not be possible for me to travel to that place frequently for follow up. In the meantime. I also consulted a private psychiatrist at Chandigarh, who after examining her and undertaking psychological tests/blood test (her hydroxyvitamin d was found abysmally low (8.60 ng/mL)(at PGI, this test was never conducted) prescribed sizopin 225 mg, ariphrenz 5 mg, escipra 10 mg and pyrocal d3 (for vitamin d deficiency. Now I am at crossroads and do not have any idea to choose which treatment (institute) to pursue for better recovery of my daughter. Prolonged treatment at PGI Chandigarh has not yielded desired results (PGI doctors have hectic schedule due to heavy rush of patients and obviously the institute follows conventional approach). In view of this kindly guide me which of the above treatments best suits my daughter for optimal results. Thanking you in anticipation.

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.

Dear lybrate-user If you are not satisfied with one doctor's opinion, you always have the right to a second or third opinion. Quetiapine has multiple uses and it will be very difficult for you to just read online and try to figure out what you have. Work with your family as well as a couple of other psychiatrists. Regards Dr. Atul.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user Hello Continuation of drug in pregnancy with the note of caution. Every medicine has side effect if not taken in proper doses and longer than required. So we can not promise without side effect. But as per this case is concern. Along with consultation with psychiatrist. You can change the medication with less side effect or you can think of adding RTMS therapy. To be safe in pregnancy or you can add psychological support system with psychological analysis n psychotherapy n can reduce the requirement of medicine (although in schizo less effective) but still can be think of. Or if needed Ultra Brief Pulse therapy can be use. Where almost nil medicatin is required. With early recovery with minimum side effect A psychiatrist after seeing he case can better decide. So consult the same to consult another but in person. All psychiatrist have read the same book so rest assured. For the right opinion. All the best.

I take quetiapine 275 mg psychiatric drug using 5 years but I need to stop this drug. I reduced drug some any problems is effects my life. How to reduced this drug with doctor consult. How to days to take that medicine. Please help me suggestions.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The dosage is fairly moderate and if your symptoms have improved then you are probably on what is called an optimum dose i.e. A dose suitable to your constitution and condition. I suspect that this may go on for a long time if you do not combine medication with counseling. In counseling you will learn skills, techniques and tools to learn how to live life in spite of your disease. This combination will help you improve a lot of symptoms and can therefore initiate reduction in medication along with the doctor's assent.

Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder
Here is detail about how to live and cooperate with Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder.

Hello! My name is DR. Vikas Khanna and today I ll be talking very briefly about how to live and cope up with problems like Schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder. It is especially for the people and family members of the patients who are suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder in which the patient lives in his own reality, he has his own imagined reality. His behaviors and his actions are totally disassociated with what we call our normal reality. We all have our own set of realities, we perceive the world in through our colored glasses but the reality of schizophrenic patient has no common ground with the world reality. The disease has a very strong genetic disposition and sadly its prognosis is poor.

So how to cope up with it? How to live up with it? Normally we force the patient to fit himself or herself into the reality of the world which is very disturbing for the patient. We are basically perpetuating the conflict by forcing the reality. They cannot change the reality, for them, that s the real world. Can we leave them in their own reality and at least do not aggravate the conflict? Similarly, in bipolar disorder, patients normally have episodes of high and episodes of low but we try to fit their highs into what we call normal. Can we let them enjoy their highs and not struggle with their loss?

If there is any further query, you can approach the platform lybrate and you can pose your question through email or call.
