Hello. My older brother was diagnosed with sz almost 20 years ago now. Thw illness has evolved over the years. It started with extreme psychosis - believing people where chasing him. He was very nervous. I could go into more.
He still does not believe he is unwell. He seems to lack insight.
He has been on several meds. You name it he haa has it. He has had compliance issues and relapses.
He is now much more chilled and a joy to hang with.
I do what I can. The delusions of grandeur persist. Hos personal hygiene is not great. I am working with him on this. Encouraging him to take care of that situation. Its very hard work but I have had several years to get used to it. I feel you need to have a plan and do your reaearch.
I feel the medical teams have done all they can. Its a tough job. I am not a fan of the medical teams to be honest. They dont think outside of the box at all.
I am wondering if there are any alternative meds which he can take. Natural healers and not these highly toxic drugs which are handed out like candy. I think we all know what they are. Essentially there are no new meds out there.
I am researching the benefits of mangosteen juice. Does anyone have any other ideas?
