Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

One of my relatives is facing some psychological problems for quite some time and she is under treatment as well. She has symptoms like mood swings, everything available she wants to eat even though she is not hungry, every time anyone goes to the washroom she also goes even without any feeling of nature's call and Sometimes she displays an obsession with her husband and daughter. She otherwise remains normal in front of strangers but in the presence of her husband and daughter she shows obsessive behavior and becomes furious over petty issues as well. She is undergoing treatment but not much improvement is seen. Following is the list of medications: Procyclidine, Clobazam, Risdon LS, Amisulpride, and Theophylline. Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Her symptoms suggest some psychotic behavior but this should be evaluated in detail. Mood swings with episodes of irritation, and anger outbursts could be part of some mood disorders. She eats a lot, she goes to the washroom without any need and this might be due to abnormal behavior resulting from some psychosis. What kind of obsession does she have? Please describe in detail.

Does she show behaviors like overspending, not listening to others, feelings that only she is right and others are wrong, argumentativeness, reduced sleep, over-religious behavior, etc.? These behaviors are seen in mood disorders. If she has symptoms like hearing voices that others cannot hear, suspiciousness, ideas that others are talking bad for her, etc.? Her symptoms and medicines given to her suggest some psychosis. However, more evaluation is needed.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
