Schizophrenia Questions

Dear sir we have a patient 35 (f) of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is taking alkepin 200 mg daily. As per latest research, as the patient of schizophrenia are lacking in glycine, betadine (a predecessor for glycine) has been found to benefit a lot. You are requested to kindly help us by advising if this will work without any unwanted side effects. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Although I am not entirely sure about the benefits of the molecules that you mention, since it is an amino acid there should be no side effects of glycine. If the patient is having auditory hallucination despite being on medication alkepin 200 mg daily, it might be helpful to make dose adjustments or to add augmentative or adjuvant therapeutic measures that target the core symptoms in addition to trying out glycine. Look forward to hearing from you.

Dear lybrate-user, 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.

How to deal with mother having schizophrenia? What should be the method to to get her agree for consultant.

Educate yourself. When you grow up with a parent with schizophrenia, it's easy to feel as if you know everything you need to know about the disorder. Seek support for yourself. Find help for your parent. She can be given some sedative given by the consultant to make her sleepy before taking her out.

single medicine is good. oleanz is a good medicine but has chances of producing weight gain, metabolic changes and sedation. If they are not there, it is wise to continue the same. If so, alternates are there. main thing is symptom control with least or no side effects. All the best.

Hi madam, sudden withdrawal of this medicine is not advisable. If you like, you may switch over gradually over a period of time to homeopathy which does not have side effects and no problem of addiction.

Hi, I just asking for this medical (loxapac 25 mg), I take just once in day, and I want to ask you if there is effects after that on my body or my mind? Thanks.

Loxapac 25 mg does have effects of the mind and sometimes on the body as well. However you are not very clear as to what you would like to know with regards to the effects of that medication. Your doctor has probably prescribed you the medication with good reason. If you would like to discuss further, about this medication or your condition or otherwise, for any reason you are welcome to do so. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio, or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

If getting quality sleep is something that you may not be experiencing regularly, you need to take steps to correct it. Sleep improves your health and revitalizes your body, allowing your body to be refreshed and energetic. In today's world, getting quality sleep has become a luxury due to various factors like excessive work and the internet. There are certain tips, which you may follow to improve the quality of your sleep. Some of them are: limit caffeine intake - drinking too much of coffee stimulates the body making you energized, and thus hampering your ability to fall asleep. Aim to avoid coffee at least 5-6 hours before you go to sleep. Follow a sleep schedule - you should make it a habit to go to bed and wake up at the same time on a regular basis. This will allow you to fall asleep easily as the body's internal sleep cycle is reinforced, thus facilitating better sleep. Try to create a comfortable environment - comfort is an important factor when it comes to sleep. A proper environment with comfortable clothing allows you to relax and experience better sleep. Make sure the room is dark, cool and quiet to help you fall asleep faster. Pre-sleep routine - you may follow a ritual before you go to sleep on a regular basis as this may help in preparing the body for sleep. Taking a bath or engaging in meditation for a few minutes are wonderful practices to follow before you sleep. Exercise on a regular basis - you should exercise on a regular basis as this will allow you to sleep better. Exercises also release endorphins that improve your overall wellbeing. Reduce stress - aim to reduce stress as this will allow you to sleep better. Stress may cause anxiety and insomnia which may impair your sleep. Eat light meals for dinner - eating carbohydrates loaded meals for dinner may hamper your digestion and cause problems in your sleep. So eat light meals and preferably two hours before you go to bed. A proper sleep schedule, regular exercise and a healthy diet assist you in getting quality sleep which is very essential to keep your body refreshed and energised. Sleep is the best reliever of all stress and physical pain. Not only is it important to get sleep, but also to sleep soundly and without any disturbance. The quality matters. Here are a few tips to get better sleep: 1.It is important to maintain the same sleep schedule every single day. This helps to naturalize your body clock and get the best quality sleep. 2.Switch off all mobile phones, laptops and other electronic devices. Their artificial glow not only hampers your eyesight, but also prolongs the amount of time your body takes to relax and fall off to sleep. 3.If your back pain causes you to continually wake up in the middle of the night in discomfort, then sleep with a pillow or cushion between your legs so as to straighten out your back and relieve pent up stress. 4.The importance of your pillow can never be stressed upon enough. Your pillow should be not too fat, hard or soft. It should just about support the natural curve of your neck, so that it is perfectly aligned with the centre of your body. Correct sleeping postures are extremely important. 5.Make sure your room is nice and dark so as to stimulate the secretion of a hormone called melatonin that is regulated by light exposure. Darker the room, greater melatonin, making you more sleepy. 6.Those who exercise regularly and well are known to be fitful sleepers. Exercise well before bedtime. If required, do some light yoga or stretching exercises that promote sleep. 7.What you eat throughout the day makes a difference to the quality of your sleep. Stay away from too much caffeine, alcohol, or a heavy meal just before sleeping. They only make you stay awake for longer and may cause heartburn or stomach trouble. Don't drink too much water, or else you will be making more midnight trips to the bathroom than clocking those sleep hours. 8.Try to keep your head clear of all worries and stress when in bed. Regular meditation and deep breathing can help. There is no end to all the things you can do to sleep well and comfortably. It is important to be self-disciplined to sleep well and hence be a healthy individual.
