How do I fix schizophrenia

Treatment of balance disorders

Dizziness-suppressing drugs (antivertiginous drugs) are useful for acute, temporary attacks of dizziness.

This applies to the initial stage of acute loss of equilibrium or in an attack in Meniere's disease. But they should never be taken for longer than 1-2 days, as they then in turn inhibit the compensation process of the equilibrium system.

Travel sickness can be suppressed by ultimately dampening central perceptual functions. In this sense, prophylaxis for a specific event is of course possible. However, this comes at the cost of tiredness, dry mouth, and possibly blurred vision and urinary retention.

It is possible that some newer drugs can help with migraine attacks that are accompanied by dizziness beyond a seizure, although there is no general solution here either and further experience has to be gained.

Otherwise, there are no drugs to prevent dizziness that have so far been able to prove that they are actually more effective than placebos. A placebo is a drug that has no effective ingredient.

Nevertheless, the substance class of the "Betahistine" celebrates good sales success. In humans, despite many years of use, there is no study that shows that drugs are superior to placebos.

Nevertheless, they are prescribed in large numbers, as they at least give the patient and doctor the feeling that they have done something. The most gratifying thing is that there are probably no great side effects to be expected either. What is likely to be effective is that the measure triggers confidence and hope, which ultimately helps to get back on your feet again. The same should also apply to the so-called "blood circulation agents", be it the vegetable ginko, tebonin or the chemical "nootropics".

They are completely superfluous in the treatment of positional dizziness or chronic forms of dizziness.

Psychiatric drugs

Without a doubt, psychiatric drugs can help endure misery and suppress symptoms. On the other hand, it is difficult to estimate how many patients, mostly poorly considered with remedies similar to valium, or even carelessly sent into an addiction. So caution and doubts, especially about sleeping pills and sedatives, are appropriate and necessary. This practice, which has rightly come into disrepute, sometimes complicates the use of psychotropic drugs when they are necessary. Psychotropic drugs should by no means be used against the - organically caused - dizziness or the fear of dizziness. This prevents therapeutic changes. Medication treatment for mental disorders not only requires extensive knowledge and experience. It also needs, even more than is usual in medicine, a feeling for the doubts and fears of the sick. Psychotropic drugs can suppress symptoms and psychological disorders such as anxiety, depression, but also hallucinations. In the best case, they can turn the disease around, but they do not fight the disease itself: they are crutches.

So that - also (!) It - can be used meaningfully, a specialist in psychiatry should be consulted in the case of massive mental illnesses.

It must be known, however, that pharmacotherapy by no means has a specifically effective drug ready for every mental disorder. She has only a rough set of instruments at her disposal. In this way she can calm down with the so-called "tranquilizers". Mood lightening and activation can occur with antidepressant medication. They make a little thick-skinned towards emotional vulnerabilities and give more support on the outside. They can then be quite useful as a support. Sometimes they are even necessary in order to be able to come into therapeutic contact in the first place. Neuroleptics can positively influence the agonizing symptoms of persecution anxiety, emotional and motor excitement, hallucinations and, to a certain extent, also thought disorders in psychoses from the schizophrenic group of forms.

Psychotropic drugs are justified as help, as transitional arrangements and as support for other measures. The drugs used for this purpose differ significantly in their active ingredients from sleeping pills or sedatives.
