My son XXXXXXX
XXXXXXX was born in October 1981 in Australia. He was diagnosed when he was 19 with Schizo Affective Disorder. Since then he has been treated with various drugs to control his depression and psychosis including Prozac and resperadone at the start. Over the past four years he has been treated with
Solian 400 mg, Invega 9 mg and Avanza 60 mg per day. These dosages have been periodically altered to arrive at the current dosage above. However these values may not be ideal. XXXXXXX has never presented with chronic depression or chronic psychosis but a low level mix of the two. Over the past three years I have noticed a marked inability for him to hold down any job. This has been because of his presentation to others of illogical or incoherent speech at times, and rambling speech when he is relaxed and by himself. He has an excellent memory (learnt by heart) but this is marred by his inability to concentrate for too long and his inability to carry out three, four or five instructions consecutively.
The loss of losing several jobs has made him even more despondent with the occasional comment of just giving up. He has recently turned to smoking and I would hate to think that he may contemplate suicide if he can’t improve. XXXXXXX is an affable person but he has no friends and even though he has tried to make them he is always rejected , possibly due to his illogical speech at times and his inability to say the right thing or raise the appropriate question. He is currently studying Horticulture on which his exam performance has been excellent. He lives with my wife and I and we help him with his study and give him much love and consideration.
I have a few questions that perhaps you could answer –
1. What dosages would be ideal for Schzo Affective disorder ?
2. In this instance should Solian be given with Invega or removed from the equation ?
3. Is the current drug choice and dosage the best that can be administered ?
4. Should one contemplate giving Clozapine ?
5. Do you need any further information ?
