after seeing this video you can decide what to do,

yeah dr. gaurav, i accept your words..she is in delusion, the thing is she is trying to impost it on us also.. she is very strict in her negative thinking, we try to have a interaction regarding her thinking with her when she gets cool down from serious condition, but it is of no use...she is queen in her court.she dont take any of our words..she should change from her basics to get back to normal life.. is there anything that can be done for that???????????????

Homeopath Dr. Gaurav Kackar's  Response
a delusion is a fixed belief that is either false, fanciful or derived from deception,

yes people suffering from these kind of mental problems try to impose & make people believe what they feel, let me tell you one thing that Homeopathic medicines works on mental plane of person and works great on mental problem, it makes me feel very bad that still many doctors of other pathy still do not believe in Homeopathy and always criticize Homeopathy, but now the great results in chronic diseases has proved that Homeopathy works, so i will advice you to start a Homeopahtic treatment for your mother which will be beneficial for her.

Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

The symptoms you described suggest that your mother suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. If it's correct, as you say she is on medication, then you should know that she also may suspect about her medication. Has your psychiatrist let you know the diagnosis or future course of the problem. Please read about schizophrenia on internet. Though a number of psychiatric medications are available, all patients do NOT completely respond to drug therapy; though psychotherapy is not very effective, it also has a role. Schizophrenia is a life long illness, there is NO CURE, but it can be successfully controlled & a patient can live normally in society. I advice you to change your psychiatrist. Alternative therapies donot have much to offer (eg. what about psychotherapy from them?).

Psychiatrist Dr. B Raghavendra's  Response
As Dr Kansal has kindly said, yes paranoid schizophrenia is ONE OF THE DIAGNOSES that she could be having

But there are many other diagnoses like depression/mania with psychosis (particularly since she has these in attacks/epsiodic form) or delusional disorder since she is elderly in age, schizoaffective disorder since you describe both depression as well as paranoid symptoms etc.

I think the first thing to do is to go back to your psychiatrist and find out what problem she has, then ask him/her lots of questions about managing her etc and her future i.e prognosis i.e weather she can be cured or she will have residual symptoms or if she is treatment resistant etc

NO ONE ELSE CAN SAY, WITHOUT EVEN SEEING A PATIENT, that she can be 100% treated.

Hope you are not having headaches with our turf wars but these are inevitable and are good for patients when done with respect.

Good Luck

everybody, good to see you again my friend, as you have already accepted that you have no idea how homeopathy works in your earlier post, and you were begging and yelling and abusing indian allopathic doctors who were unable to cure the case, so i think you are again going to do this here, i have no problem with this, and it is not promoting about personal website its all about promoting homeopathy, if i have good cases to show than i will definitely give links to patients. even you can also do that. when there is a safe method to give cure to patients than they should know about it.

thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
Your mom is suffering from Paranoid schizophrenia as she has constant suspiciousness and fearfulness.
You should consult your psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment. Doctor may prescribe risperidone or olanzapine like anti psychotics.

In some cases, it may not be possible to manage the patient without medication. but yes, her symptoms can be controlled very well with treatment.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

She is having delusions and paranoia - it means major Psychosis...
Psychiatrist can certainly help - the problem is to choose a suitable drug / adjust the dose / and ensure compliance...
Dedicated care taker service is a must - if not feasible, she must be institutionalised.
The prognosis can only be gauged by the treating psychiatrist - considering her age and duration of illness, 100% cure may not be achievable...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Psychiatrist Dr. Sundar Gnanavel's  Response
Thanks for your query. The symptoms you describe are referred to as suspiciousness/paranoia in psychiatric parlance. They are typical of psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia. Hence, i would suggest an evaluation by a psychiatrist.
The usual therapy consists of antipsychotics like olanzapine. The disorder is not curable but symptomatic remission is achievable. Wish her good health.
