Took shock treatment for mental disorder. Can you help me find a doctor?

Hi, this is roshan. My sister during her initial state of mental disorder, she used to murmer on herself. My father found this unusual behaviour in my sister and took to a doctor, where she underwent shock treatment for 3 months. For my sister we had treatment with phyciartist in anantapur district of AP. She is not so active as she is before. We want to meet a phyciartist in Bellary. If possible please provide me the good phyciartist details in Bellary.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Dec 2014
Welcome to HCM

She had complaints of muttering and unusual behavior. She was most likely suffering from some psychotic episode and possibly schizophrenia. Shock therapy or ECT is very nice modality of treatment which is devoid of major side effects and is effective in acute stages of illness. But it should not be used solely for maintenance purpose. For medicines you should consult her psychiatrist again for detailed evaluation. She is not active like she was before, this might be due to her illness only and negative symptoms of disease.
Regarding Psychiatrist in Bellary, you can visit medical college and hospital for expert opinion.
