Use Of Anti Psychosis And Anti Psychotic Drugs?
I was discharged from a psychiatrist and was given clozapine, risperidone, I asked the psychiatrist what my illness was but they did not answer. What is the function of the drug? R nI have read on the Internet that the drug is for bipolar and schizophrenia, so which one do I suffer from? R nI have both?
A psychiatrist who examines you closely and prescribes therapy can only make a diagnosis of your mental health condition. It is better if you do not focus on the type of illness you have but more on how your mental health condition can improve.
Clozapine is an anti-psychotic medication that is intended to relieve the symptoms of existing psychosis. Psychosis itself has a meaning where the sufferer cannot distinguish between fantasy and real life. This drug can be given in cases of schizophrenia with symptoms of psychosis or other psychosis related to Parkinson's and other mental conditions.
Risperidone itself is also an anti-psychotic drug that is intended to relieve the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia pepper, behavioral disorders, bipolar disorder and Alzheimer's conditions.
Certainly, your psychiatrist's administering medication has a strong medical basis. Consult with a psychiatrist about your curiosity and concerns you have so that the psychiatrist can better know your condition and your response to the treatment given.
Hope this clarifies.
