Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

This kind of abnormal behaviour could be indicative of a psychotic disorder. However, your friend needs a detailed psychiatric assessment to make a correct diagnosis. Please take him to a psychiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. The earlier psychiatric disorders are detected and treated, the better is the prognosis. If he is refusing treatment and if you feel that his abnormal behaviour may be dangerous - putting himself or others at risk, then you need to inform his family and appropriate authorities about this.

Wish you all the best.

welcome to healthcare magic

Your friend had "psychotic episode" (characterised by delusions, hallucinations, disorganised behaviour etc). I advise you to take him to a psychiatrist as soon as possible so that he may not hurt himself or others.

Good Luck

These are psychotic symptoms. You should consult a psychiatrist.
Should start anti psychotic like RISPERIDON / OLANZAPINE/ HALOPERIDOL.
But a detailed evaluation needed.
Thanks for approaching.
