@SzAdmin if you have access to the whole study, can you please check to see if the study was double-blind or not?
L-theanine is Effective in Lessening Positive Symptoms, and improving Sleep Quality in patients with schizophrenia
I don’t think the first study above mentioned was double blind - but there are other studies of this amino acid in schizophrenia that are double blind. Here is one:
Sir I have a shizophrenia patient in my family.We are treating her with olanzia.But now it does not seem to work.It has no effect on her.Her left eye has become red like blood she feels pain in her eye to.I shall be very thankful to you if u can tell me what should i do…
You should explain this to her doctor and they will adjust / change their medication. Not all medications work for everybody. Everybody reacts differently to each medication. It’s trial and error.
Thank you, I have been wanting to take supplements, but not know what to take. Was considering, vitamin D, Zinc and … mmmmmm, I forget, but this does look like a very interesting option. Happy lady. Think I will try it. My only concern is that I take an unti convulsant for epilepsy and would want to have a reaction between the two. Am hoping it will be ok though, as it is calming. Thanks! x
CAN YOU SUGGEST ME A MEDICINE FOR HER?BECAUSE she will not go to the doctor.She thinks every body is against her…
I can’t suggest a medication as I’m not a doctor. Can you get the doctor to visit them if they won’t go to the doctor?
No,because we live in a small city and there is no doctor who can treat her.Can you suggest me a doctor who can help me online???
No. A small city will have a doctor. A doctor should treat her or refer her to a specialist. A doctor can also recommend / help you getting them sent involuntarily to hospital if they feel necessary.
Do not go online looking for for help with something as serious as this. Please. Talk to a real doctor in your small city. Please.
Think I may up my green tea intake instead. Although am considering buying some.
tried it, not that brilliant, I prefer Kava Kava, Lemon Balm, and i’m really anxious I cant buy quality afghan hash, in a shop, away from scuz bag dealers, with coffee, listening to the dulcet tones of jimi hendrix playing the american national anthem and wild thing
Kava kava is banned in Europe as it has killed people by screwing up their liver, even when used for a very short time. Google kava and liver and see if you still think it’s worth the risk.
Lemon balm interacts with abilify and caused me a serious cardiac issue.
What changes should I notice after taking 200 mg. I am getting it from PipingRock.com . Can anyone confirm that that brand works for them?
Like jimbob said, it’s like Cloneazapam, but I found it helped with my disorganised thinking. I use this
I am taking 1000g day, for 7 days now. Hope it is not too much.
Hi - the recommended dose is 250 mg/day. Did you try it at that level?
Yes, but I felt so good that I increased
Let us know how it goes. Did anything happen after you increased to 1000 mg a day? Please update us as you continue on this, or if you change dosing.
I am taking 350 mg three times a day. Until now I’m feeling very well. I’ll keep updating.
Can I ask what difference it made for you?
