What is Psychotic
Psychosis is an umbrella term; it means that an individual has sensory experiences of things that do not exist and/or beliefs with no basis in reality.During a psychotic episode, an individual may experience hallucinations and/or delusions. They may see or hear things that do not exist.This can be incredibly frightening for the individual and, sometimes, the symptoms can cause them to lash out and hurt themselves or others
Symptoms of Psychotic
Symptoms of being psychotic include delusions which are very firmly held false believes that are not consistent with one’s culture. Hallucinations are also a symptom which involve hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling, or tasting something that is not actually there. These experiences appear entirely real to the person who is experiencing them. Another symptom is disorganized speech or behaviour which include slipping off topic going off on tangent, answering a question in a way that does not make sense to the other person, and talking about things unrelated to the conversation.
Available Treatments for Psychotic
Treatment with a class of drugs known as antipsychotics is the most common therapy for people with a psychotic illness.Antipsychotics are effective at reducing psychosis symptoms in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, but they do not themselves treat or cure underlying psychotic illnesses.So-called second-generation antipsychotics are most commonly used by doctors to treat psychosis. While their use is widespread in the United States, this is controversial. The World Health Organization (WHO) does not recommend them, except clozapine (branded Clozaril and FazaClo in the U.S.), which may be used under special supervision if there has been no response to other antipsychotic medicines.
