Treatment For Schizophrenics?
Hello, my friend has a psychiatric disorder, every time he is invited to have a rather long chat he often disconnects, he always expresses the words / things in his head spontaneously, and he thinks that is true. He doesn’t even seem to want to listen to other people’s advice. Initially he was a normal human, but since a broken heart 4 years ago his attitude began to cause for concern. He used to even talk to electricity poles, shower in gutter, cry out loud, etc. Unfortunately he never got special handling. I suspect he has schizophernia, but the problem is that at present he is not withdrawing from the environment, he is nagging, very fond of meeting and talking to new people, even though the conversation is dizzy. I want to ask, about the chat that is often not connected, what is the name of the disease?
Hello Zeestar, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com,
Diagnosis Schizophrenia requires a face-to-face consultation (through interviews and a complete psychiatric examination) with a psychiatrist. The symptoms you mentioned in the question are indeed psychotic symptoms, that is a condition in which a person is difficult to distinguish between the real and the unreal (for example in the form of false beliefs that are difficult to shake; see / hear things that are not real). Psychosis symptoms are not only owned by schizophrenes, but can also be caused by:
Schizoaffective Severe depression with psychotic symptoms Bipolar disorders with psychotic symptoms, etc. Patients with mental disorders really need the support of people around, especially families. It is difficult to convince patients that they are sick (especially if there is bad insight), but it is advisable to bring your friend to a psychiatrist as soon as possible so he can get treatment immediately. The doctor will evaluate, and if judged there are indications will be given antipsychotic drugs, and other psychotherapy regularly. If the patient hurts himself / others or arises, it is recommended to take the patient to the nearest hospital emergency room so that it can be treated immediately. It should be understood that the handling of mental disorders earlier has a better prognosis (future possibilities) than those that have been protracted.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
