Brief Answer:
The dose of sizodone liquid is 1-8 ml per day

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

I agree with your point that many patients do not recognize their illness and fail to visit doctor due to poor insight (awareness about self and disease). At the same time no doctor is supposed to make a prescription for a patient without seeing him.

Being a doctor I can state that the dose of sizodon liquid is 1-8 ml per day and I think it can be increased in case of your father as he is currently taking one ml per day.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling. I am 59 and also need some testing done for symptoms of inherited disorders, and I have some diagnosises already. I need treatment too. Can you help us?

Hi, I'm a 21 year-old male with erectile dysfunction (I've been experiencing erectile dysfunction for over 4 years). My bloodwork shows a deficiency in total testosterone hormone, with a surplus of free testosterone hormone, as well as low thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism). I'm 5'10" and weigh 225 pounds (I'm overweight). I am taking Abilify 15 mg to treat schizophrenia. My erectile dysfunction started occurring well before starting treatment with Abilify. I frequently have trouble waking up in the morning, and after waking up I often times don't feel refreshed. Over the past 10 months, I've gained about 25 pounds. What can be causing my erectile dysfunction, weight gain, inability to get up in the morning, hypothyroidism, and testosterone abnormalities (low total testosterone, but high free testosterone)?

I need to find someone who can help me get a diagnosis for my brother. I believe he suffers from delusions of grandeur. My Dad won t be around much longer to support him so in order for him to get the services he needs he will need a diagnosis. I don t know if I can get him to go more than once or twice. It is painfully obvious to family members but I don t think a stranger would see a problem right away so I m concerned. Do you have a name of a psychiatrist that specializes in this? We live south of Detroit.
