Hello doctor,

One of my friends went to a psychiatrist and he gave him an injection saying that it will calm him. After six hours I got a call saying that my friend hit someone because the later said a word to him that made him very angry. I spoke to my friend and he was repeating only the same word. He was not normal, and he is saying the same sentence again and again. Can you please give me an explanation on this.

Welcome to iclniq.com.

Violence is a psychiatry step from a wide variety of conditions. I will not be able to give an accurate explanation with the available information. More information is needed for an accurate diagnosis. However, the possibilities I am thinking of is manic episode or Schizophrenia.

In both cases, lack of or impaired judgment and insight causes people to behave in a manner inconsistent with social norms. In this case, they head with violence towards others. The repetition of words or phrases can be a symptom of schizophrenia but more information is needed to comment on that.
