Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have a past history of schizophrenia and OCD. I am not in any medication now for the past two months. Currently taking only L-Carnoshine for the past two months for cognition improvement. My question is, should I take Omega-3 also with L-Carnosine for better and fast results for cognition improvement?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I thoroughly read your query and can understand your situation.

I suggest you take both the above medications and also take Ashwagandha with milk at night for it. Following are my suggestions to improve cognitive function, and will help you:

  • Exercises daily for 30 to 45 minutes, like at least going for a walk.
  • Do meditation for 20 minutes daily. Sit in one place in a comfortable position, and try to concentrate on your normal breathing. Do not stop or force yourself to stop your thoughts. Just let them be. It will help you to increase concentration.
  • Eat healthy home-cooked foods, and avoid junk foods.
  • You must drink enough water.
  • Spend quality time with friends and family daily, or do video calls if you live away from your family.
  • Spend time on creative hobbies like reading good books, writing journals, painting, drawing, and learning new skills like language or musical instruments.
  • Sleep enough for seven to eight hours daily.
  • Avoid tobacco, alcohol, or any substance abuse.
  • Live your life, do not just spend it. Be bold and confident.
  • I hope that you get your answer.
  • Hope this helps.

    Please, let me know if you want some help.

    Thank you.
