I have been diagnosed with a schizophrenic disorder for almost 4 years now and as you can see I have been tested with a lot of different antipsychotic medications- some of which has given me severe side-effects and last month I was also diagnosed with alopecia because I am under constant stress/anxiety and fear and I am desperate to find out if these medications has had an impact on this newly discovered stress-related illness- alopecia. Having such a severe psychological illness and all which it brings with medicational side-effects and what-not and on top of that having to fall apart on the outside-being a young woman- loosing ones hair and see ones fingernails crumble was the very last...last thing I needed to be honest. *sigh*...

I suffer severe pain all over my body especially on my legs. My doctor prescribed Arthrotec and i took it for about 4 days. All my pain dissappeared but i developed purplish rashes under my breast, patches all over my body, almost like welts....really very scary. The rashes are not going away and my skin feels dead. I've used some creams for rashes and it is not helping. Went back to the doctor and he suggested splitting a pill in half...hail no!!! I am not taking this medication again.

see the project cyborg prof. kevin warwick and ubniversity columbia
"By means of the implant, Warwick's nervous system was connected onto the internet in Columbia University, New York. From there he was able to control the robot arm in the University of Reading and to obtain feedback from sensors in the finger tips. He also successfully connected ultrasonic sensors on a baseball cap and experienced a form of extra sensory input.
A highly publicised extension to the experiment, in which a simpler array was implanted into the arm of Warwick's wife—with the ultimate aim of one day creating a form of telepathy or empathy using the Internet to communicate the signal from afar—was also successful in-so-far as it resulted in the first direct and purely electronic communication between the nervous systems of two humans. Finally, the effect..."

WITH PPL THAT HAS SCHIZOPHERINA, WELL I DID LOT OF STUDY ABOUT BECAUSE THE DOC THOUGHT I HAVE IT B4, MY MOM TOLD ME TO START THE GLUTEN FREE DIET AND IT SEEM WORKING. I STILL HAVE PROBLEM, BUT IT'S VERY LOW, PPL CAN'T TELL AT ALL AND WHEN I'M CONFUSED ABOUT SOMETHING I WOULD ASK SOMEONE AND THEY CAN EXPAIN THINGS TO ME AND I'M LIKE OH OKAY NOW I UNDERSTAND. SOMETIME WHEN PPL START A GLUTEN FREE DIET FOR AWHILE, THEY CAN GET OFF THE MED OR START VERY LOW DOSE. TO BE AN HONEST NO DOC CAN UNDERSTAND THE BRAIN AND THE BRAINS ARE THE HARDEST PARTS OF BODY TO STUDY. THE BRAIN ARE WIRED IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS AND IT CAN BE CONFUSED. SOMETIME WHEN WOMEN HAVE PMS/PMDD THEY CAN ACT LIKE SCHIZOPHERINA EVEN THEY DON'T HAVE IT OR IT'S VERY MILD OR MAYBE IT IS SOMETHING ELSE. I ALWAYS MARK EVERY MONTH WHEN I START HAVING PMS OR PMDD. TO BE HONEST WOMEN WITH PMS/PMDD ARE LITTLE INSANE, BUT WHEN IT'S OVER THEN WOMEN ACT JUST FINE. WOMEN BODY IS NOT A SIMPLE AS MEN ARE, LOL.

What is all this crap about implants & brains being connected to the Internet?! Really?! I think all of you that believe this garbage are in need of a little anti-psychotic medication! No, I'm not going to waste my time reading about it! I've already wasted enough time reading your posts & replying, thank you! A reality check is what you need! Please post your crap on some FB page about "mind control" & "ancient aliens"!

Don't worry...I am a researcher and recently I happened to attend an international conference. In india, Intas Pharmaceuticals is launching a product called "Zubitin" which has 10mg of Biotin. If in india, try this for your condition else ask your pharmacist or doctor to prescribe pure formulations of Biotin. Take 10mg of such a preparation once daily or as directed by physician depending on the severity of your problem. In any case, do consult a physician's advice for your condition. Good Day.

It looks like not enough people are asking why do we need anti dopamine medication, the anti psychotics, or why do we have too much dopamine and how can we get to not needing anti psychotics at all ?
Excess dopamine production is listed, according to one psychiatrist, as being caused by head injuries, diabetes and cerebral hypoxia - oxygen deficits in the brain cells.
A common cause of cerebral hypoxia is a blocked or partially blocked artery within or progressing to the brain, and alert neurologists now say the other arteries never fully compensate.
Also 'schizophrenia' is now responding to antibiotics, one update being that it is an inflammatory or immunity problem.
It's time to tie the same symptoms to the same causes and do something about them.
The causes are injury from physical or toxic damage or disease, coupled with inadequate nutrition, and the symptoms are external and internal visual and auditory hallucinations, illogical and mistaken reasoning also leading to fear and violence, and inadequate concentration, and much diminished caring all round.
Once there are explanations based on the hard evidence of mra/mri scans and biochemical tests, then it is possible to get people well again so they no longer produce too much dopamine and no longer need the problematic anti psychotic medications.
This will require osteopathic, immunity, chelation,dietary psychotherapeutic treatments and in accordance with what mental ill health actually is - either trauma consequent on overloading due to bereavement, betrayal, perversion or abuse or malfunctioning due to toxins, disease or physical damage, both manifesting in an overproduction of dopamine as an attempt to keep the body working properly and regardless of its detrimental effect on our more recently evolved consciousness.

I urge you to educate yourself about what's already happening. Look up the following: Science Daily article titled "Brain-To-Brain Interface Allows Transmission of Tactile and Motor Information Between Rats". Laboratory researchers have linked the brains of animals over thousands of miles via the internet. This is reality.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this challenging condition. Alopecia responds well to high doses
of B vitamins, particularly liposome B, which is also very effective for Schizophrenia, in particular Niacin. Vitamin C has been extremely helpful with B vitamins in many countries, check Pubmed for studies. You may have a high requirement for B vitamins, hence the Alopecia. Severe stress depletes many nutrients leaving you deficient. Find a good Orthomolecular physician who will put you onto the right nutrients for your symptoms of deficiency.
Good Luck, you can correct both of these conditions.
I was often in trouble at school but only to the point of being described as mischievous. Towards the end of my teens and early to mid 20s this mischief making became an irritant to others although I was unaware of it. During my working life, it became unacceptable and I found myself in many disciplinary situations without understanding why. Throughout all of this, I was stressed and anxious and fed many hypertension and anti-depressant / anti-anxiety meds. At the age of 35, I was diagnosed with Asperger's disorder and started CBT. I became more mentally aware of mannerisms and behaviour and the actions that caused me to get into trouble. The mental energy in analysing my every move led to exhaustion and a deep depression. Quite by chance, I had some surgery which involved using tramadol as a post-op painkiller. It did nothing for the pain but I started to receive compliments about my improved behaviour. I increased my tramadol intake and the compliments became positive feedback. I started using tramadol to excess and, to make this tale a short one, I still see the world through the eyes of an autistic but I better understand what is and what is not acceptable. Honesty, it seems, is not. I am now addicted to tramadol, have depression, anxiety and nausea to the extent that I do not enjoy life but I fear death enough not to act on it.

Look up sociopathy it is a common misdiagnosis to Aspergers. Those with Aspergers often don't get into trouble due to their quiet nature. Your taking of said pills to please others coincides with you not being on the autistic spectrum. Further more depression and anxiety are two different things. Those with Aspergers do not get depressed unless medicated. High levels of the hormone vasopressin often induces the anxiety. You have no impulsive empathy that signifies emotions working in the frontal region of the brain rather than the amygdala hence sociopathy not aspergers.

Seems like you're making an extremely bold assessment on very little information here. Hope you keep in mind that there is an actual human being on the other end.
