Why do Psych meds make you tired when you take them ?
I take a psych med called moban and it makes me tired every time it take it. Can somebody explain why it makes me tired.
Asked by Tonita Herrington 6 months ago.
In general the antipsychotic drugs (Moban is an example of one of them) eventually act to block the action of dopamine in parts of the brain. However, since dopamine is a neurotransmitter that has an activating effect (in a very general, simplified explanation), blocking it can often cause a decrease in activation, causing side effects such as tiredness, decreased motivation, effects on movement, etc. Answered by Maximina Free 6 months ago.
What kind of Doctor????????
What kind of doctor do I have to find to be weaned off both my lithium & moban medications?
Asked by Pauline Simco 6 months ago.
Go with the prescribing doctor. If he/she is not available than you'll need to go to a medical doctor or a psychiatrist (a medical doctor with extra training in the mental health field). Answered by Frances Awkward 6 months ago.
I would not go to the doctor who precribed the medication UNLESS he is a psychiatrist. You need a psychiatrist a general practitioner is typically not qualified. Also, as a side note. 1) don't just stop on your own. That could be very dangerious. 2) Why are you stoping? You did not say why you are taking the drugs (I assume Bipolar). Because it can be unhealthy to stop medications (even under medical supervision) for Bipolar or schizophrenia. For many, stopping treatment will cause symptoms to come back. And if you are haveing side effects, there are other options. And Moban (Molindone)? That is an odd choice for anything unless you have taken the more typically precribed drugs and they did not work. Just want you to know. Good luck If you have questions feel free to emal me. Answered by Sterling Mcgunagle 6 months ago.
Not to be smart, but probably the kind that first prescribed it to you. I think your primary care doctor can recommend a physican. Answered by Phoebe Ritzman 6 months ago.
Before June 1st, 2009?
What must I do to be weened off of half of a 25mg Moban tablet & 900mg of Lithium completely BEFORE June 1st, 2009? How do I take control of my Bipolar without any dependencies?
Asked by Millie Preyer 6 months ago.
ask the doctor that prescribed them. Answered by Theodora Mender 6 months ago.
Be very careful about coming off of any medications too quickly. It can do your body more harm than good if you stop taking medications that were prescribed to you. My doctor told me that "you can never come off your medications slow enough". I tried to race into weening myself off of my medications, and I almost went completely insane, so do yourself a favor, and make sure that you are doing it the right way, and that your doctor is involved with your recovery. I wouldn't suggest trying to do it alone. Best of luck! :) Answered by Wilton Kunkle 6 months ago.

Is a neuroleptic the same the as an antipsychotic?
Are they the same thing?
Asked by Janey Willert 6 months ago.
a neuroleptic is an antipsychotic and an antipsychotic is a neuroleptic. It's just a different name for the same class of drugs...most of which are dopamine agonists/blockers, which include first generations... Fluphenazine, Moban, Thorazine....phenothiazene deriviatives like Haldol, second generations like Risperdal, Seroquel, Abilify...and many many more. They're used for psychiatric disorders, including bipolar and schizophrenic disorders, and some other disorders that are caused by dopamine imbalances (eg, dystonia, Tourette's Syndrome, nausea disorders) Far surpassed by their range of uses is their range of "adverse effects" (side effects) which include, but are certainly not limmited to-- weight gain, sleepines, sexual dysfunction, diabetic ketoacidosis (as in coma induced by blood sugar changes) tardive dyskinesia (potentially permanent muscle contractions that result in disfiguring, disabling movemetns and postures) tremor, personality change, acute dystonic reaction, liver failure....... In short, neuroleptics, or antipsychotics, regardless fo what you call them, are powerful drugs, which act on dopamine and other neurotransmitters, which have equal potential for harm or good results. That said, doctors need to prescribe them with caution. Why do I know all of this? I've taken more than a dozen of them for my Tourette's Syndrome, and have done a lot of 'digging' on their side effects, trying to figure out why I had these side effects. All in all, they have changed the face of modern psychiatry, made the lobotomy obsolete, and enabled hundreds of thousands of people with psychiatric disorders to live fairly normal lives. Still, they can cause disabling effects, and even kill. Their use is beneficial, if riddled with side effects. Answered by Susie Nikkel 6 months ago.
Do you think I have Borderline Personality Disorder?
Koyn: I am NOT a fake. I'm simply looking for a diagnosis that fits the criteria I have.
Asked by Donna Knoch 6 months ago.
I'm 14 years old and have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder w/ Physchotic Features and Panic Disorder. I have a lot of depression symptoms, except the big one-- isolation. I have anxiety and cannot be alone. Cannot. I have panic attacks and get paranoid if I am. My paranoia is to the extreme. I always think someone want to kill me and my family secretly hates me. I also hear voices telling me to harm myself and to kill others. My phychiatrist says they're thoughts but they aren't. I know for a fact that they are voices, loud and clear. I also get really loopy sometimes. I get EXTREMELY random saying stuff like "I like your nose today" and get all jumpy. My thoughts race when that happens. Other times I just hate life. No in between. I also have uncontrolable laughter or crying at situations where I shouldn't. At my grandpa's funeral I couldn't stop laughing and on my best friends birthday I couldn't stop crying. It's unreasonable. The relationships I have with people are hot and cold. One moment I love them to death, the next I hate them so much I could kill them. I think there's more to it, that it's more than Major Depressive Disorder w/ Physchotic Features. I personally believe I could have Borderline Personality Disorder. What is your view on this, what do you think I have? Thanks for answering. Answered by Beatris Gums 6 months ago.
No, it does not really sound like BPD... more like schizophrenia as someone already pointed out (the auditory hallucinations especially are a lot of times a first sign of schizophrenia), so it may be beneficial to get that checked on. Answered by Mina Falso 6 months ago.
You're not describing a single symptom of BPD - sounds more like psychosis or schizophrenia Answered by Asa Eggington 6 months ago.

I have heard voices and seen things since i was a young kid, but recently i have been having very realistic hallucinations. Most of them involve people I know in real life, or celebrities or other big figures. Sometimes they are about peaceful things Or are random/ nonsense, but several times I have had these and i have attempted to commit suicide from them. One time, my girlfriend (who has depression) was feeling suicidal and called me about it, and that night I had an episode that she was an angel, and had killed herself and was saying it was "better on the other side" and that "she would guide me" What should i do to control these? I have gone to many doctor, but they all give meds that do not help. I once spent 6 month in hospital and nothing help, so i lie to get out. Most of the time i can tell after an episode that it was not real, but by then the consequences could be over. What should i do to deal with this? And sorry about language, i am Finnish and do not know great english at all Answered by Cherry Gulde 6 months ago.
Actually, your written english is good. I have no difficulty at all understanding you. I have had the same problem from time to time and found that most of the usual medicines are useless for me. Two of them however worked very well. those where Moban and Serequel. Serequel works really good for me, unfortunately, Serequel makes me gain weight rapidly, which for me, could be a fatal side effect. None of the psychiatrist have been able to understand my objection to that particular side effect. Which leads me to believe that most psychiatrist have there own mental health problems. Moban did not have that side effect, but in the U.S. where I live, it has been discontinued. That really ticked me off when they did that. I think it may very well be that for each individual, there are only two or three medicines that will work. There being twenty to thirty such meds, it could take time to find what works. Good luck with this. Watch the movie called "A Beautiful Mind". It's about a man with the same problem you and I have, a man that won the nobel prize. It's in English but try it, it's worth it.

Youre tailor making the illness to build a life around. Youre too lucid in thought to be seriously mentally ill and youre not schizophrenic for sure. Youve got all the options terms and titles off to a fine menu. Your symptoms seem to focus toward attention seeking. Thats evident from the fear of being alone and some leaning toward tourettees syndrome behaviour. Thats attention attracting. Low self esteem. More psychology needed here and less psychiatry. You would benefit from SSRI type medication well supervised and coupled with regular psychology counselling and cognitive therapy. Zoloft is a tri cyclic and should be an effective mood balance enhancer. But you shouldn't be on anti psychotics too. What youre experiencing is symptomatic. Its not psychotic.

A very unwell mama puppy is an enormously annoying obstacle. And I realize your anger at probably the most solutions that you just obtained. It is common so that you can wish to vent again to those humans a few of your anger and frustration. So, attempt to stay calm and preserve your cognizance in your puppy & doggies. Don't permit this cloud your real target - a healthful puppy. And sure, I might love to understand this results. Kudos to you in your rapid movement in taking care of 7 doggies! It is not effortless! I want that extra individuals might detect that there are occasions that stump even the pleasant of vets. While the calicum drawback is essentially the most natural with those signs, it's not the one rationale. And your willpower to this puppy and her doggies could be very, very admirable. So, you already know that you're responding to this quandary within the pleasant method feasible. You are doing all you'll do in an enormously intricate obstacle. Let God type out the relaxation.
