Detailed Answer:
Hello,
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.
