“Just stay calm!” – this phrase is not new, and we believe everyone has heard it some day. And it is not so easy to calm down. As you may know, the human body gets used to different conditions: working at nights, or standing for 8 hours within a day, or living in a cold or hot climate.
Of course, it may be challenging to live in a cold climate, or work through the holidays, but we may not notice failures in our body right away. Due to the well-organized internal systems (if we dare to call it this way), the human body will not give the signals about tiredness, or irritation, or nervousness right away. A person will be able to work in certain conditions for some period of time. Some of people will not even see health problems in 4 years, but others may notice it even in 3 weeks.
In order to stay calm and be effective, it is essential to support the needs of our body.
- Quality food
- Quality rest
- Good sleep
These are probably the most important things that we have to follow in order to support our body and have effective and good energy. It looks simple, but let’s face it, one of this points always suffers. We may eat good, sleep well, but work constantly, without any rest. Or our sleep and rest are in balance, but the food we consume may not be full of needed nutrients. These combinations may be multiple. The bad thing is all three points are not followed within a long period of time.
Can of Worms
Any cell, any muscle, any bone in our body is created for its own purpose. Nutrition should be proper in order to support all these elements and fibers. As you know, all vitamins, nutritive elements needed to support a proper function of the whole body come from food. If the body does not get enough nutritive elements, some of the destructive processes may happen.
Of course, it does not happen right away. As we have already said, our body gets used to certain environment and way of living. People may live without salmon in the everyday menu, or fresh milk. That is how we are created. But if we do not eat well, our energy level may drop, and we may experience some fatigue, sleepiness, or irritation.
So, we eat rather good now, but we do not have a good rest. The work is stressful, deadlines are closer, children needs attention – no time to rest properly. Here is where apathy, nervousness, depression may start.
This, in its turn, may lead to poor sleep. The nervous system may be agitated because of nervousness, or bad thoughts, so that it would be hard to fall asleep. Of course, a person will not have insomnia right away. The sleep would be partial, or short, or accompanied with frequent awakening. It may be ok, if it happens once or two times per week. But when it is on a regular basis, all systems in our body may be affected.
Moreover, if the body signals are neglected, stress and negative symptoms will be accumulated. The concentration will drop, the mood swings will be more frequent, and the energy will be low. It is important to detect such changes in the body on time to avoid the development of more serious problems.
It will be enough to restore one of these main points, and then the body will restore its energy. Of course, it would be good to keep harmony and balance in everything.
Of course, there are diseases that require a special care and attention of doctors and a person. Some of the diseases may be genetic, and others may be acquired. We are not going to enumerate all known diseases (in fact it would be so long and last endlessly). This introductory article is devoted to some of them and possible treatment.
As we have mentioned above, everything is interrelated in our body, and if something is not well provided and supported, some of the systems in the body will fail in some period of time. Let’s consider food. It’s clear that quality food gives us quality elements for our cells and tissues in the body. But what if we eat junk food all the time?
Junk food gives fast saturation, but it will not last long. In case of the regular consumption of it, the gastro-intestinal tract may be affected. Diarrhea, or constipation may become a frequent guest in our everyday life.
In case of a consumption of the excessive amount of sugar, this person may be irritated and have a bad skin (we are going to number just the main symptoms met during this digestion disorder). Moreover, junk food affects microbiome in our intestine. This leads to the imbalance of hormones in the whole body systems. One of the hormones that may be affected is serotonin. The production of serotonin is poor, and so a person may have a bad mood, apathy, and depression.
Health of the Brain
In case of a good level of serotonin, a person feels good and happy. As you may know, this is a happy hormone. Moreover, it takes part in the satiety. If serotonin level is low, a person does not feel satiety after eating.
Serotonin also helps to regulate mucus in the stomach and intestine, which leads to the proper peristalsis function. It helps to avoid constipation.
In the brain, serotonin helps to regulate our attention, mood and concentration. Of course, there are other hormones that should work together to provide better thinking processes, but if one of them (for example, serotonin) is affected, the whole system will fail.
if the signals of the body are neglected, it may lead to the development of digestion disorder, depression, episodes of mania, and even schizophrenia. Only a professional medical specialist is able to properly estimate the functioning of the body and diagnose in case of any failures. Do not self-medicate.
What are the first signs of some failures in your body?
- Frequent diarrhea or constipation
- Often fatigue
- Bad mood
- Poor concentration
This list is not full, and it may vary from one person to another.
According to the statistics, one of the most frequent mental diseases are depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Depression is now a common disease that should be treated by mean of pharmaceutical products.
In case of diagnosing mental diseases, some anti-psychotic medical products are used. Some of the therapies needs a combination of medication that may include sedative pills, antidepressant, and immunomodulatory agents. In any case, any consumption of medical products should be controlled by a medical specialist.
Seroquel is widely used in the medical practice. This product has been approved by FDA in the treatment of diseases that have been mentioned above. Seroquel may be also met as quetiapine. This is one of the main ingredients that helps to activate certain parts in the brain.
As you already know, serotonin level may have a direct influence on the person’s mood. If common ways to improve this hormone level does not work, Seroquel may be prescribed. As it is an anti-psychotic medication, it has a direct action on some neurotransmitters in the brain and receptors such as serotonin and dopamine. It is still unknown how quetiapine acts on the brain receptors, and some of the researches of this medical product are still going on.
However, the result of the treatment of schizophrenia, or mania episodes, or depression with Seroquel shows positive dynamics among patients. Most of them have already forgotten about bad mood, apathy, nervousness, self-flagellation, and now they can fully enjoys their lives. The most important thing is to start the treatment in time, as early diagnosing is 50% of the success.
The medication may be indicated both children and adults. A physical examination of a patient (whether it is adult, or a child) will give a full notion about the state of a patient, feelings, symptoms, and emotions. Some of the medical tests may be also taken.
It is important to know about allergies to products and medical substances, so that to avoid severe allergic reaction during the use of Seroquel. Sometimes allergy reaction may occur during the treatment, or just right in the middle of the treatment. So it is better to stop using the medicine in this case.
The treatment of
- Bipolar disorder
is possible with quetiapine. The medicine is prescribed to children at the age of 10 (depending on the diagnosis). Adult persons at the age of 60 may also take this medicine.
Seroquel may be also used in combination therapy. One of the actions of the drug is sedative. It helps to calm down, to clear thoughts and improve sleeping. That is why it may be indicated for the combined therapies and used with other medications to intensify the treatment.
It may be used for the treatment of the major depression, as well as anxiety disorder. In case other medications do not help to treat some diseases, Seroquel may be added. These are delirium, post-traumatic stress, obsessive compulsive disorder. It does not mean that if you know that you have one of these diagnosis, it is necessary to take the pills right away.
The list of the indications may vary as Seroquel is still going through some pharmaceutical researches, and more information about its action on the human body may be obtained.
Effects After Usage
Seroquel is available in tablets. The strength of the tablet may be various. The minimal dose is 25 mg, and the highest dose is 400 mg. A doctor indicates the correct dose. Moreover, the dosage regimen may be changed during the treatment, if there is no reaction from the body. The dose may be increased if the symptoms are not gone, or the dose may be lowered if a patient feels sick after the use of the drug.
It is essential to follow the doctor’s directions and read a leaflet before taking the medicine. Here are the main rules that even a child should know:
- A pill is taken with clear water
- No need to take it with juice (however, some of the medicines may be taken with milk. This information should be checked in the leaflet coming with the medicine)
- Do not mix medicine with alcohol
- No double doses
In case of the expired date of the medicine, it is better to buy a new pack of the medicine. Otherwise, the effect of the taken dose will be unknown. Never change the dose on your own. Let your doctor decide whether this dose is good enough.
In case of schizophrenia, a patient may experience hallucinations. It is important to control this person and maybe give one pill at a time to this person (other pills may be hidden) because the disease attacks may be unexpected, and a person may act differently during the treatment. Make sure to help your relatives in case they are having Seroquel therapy.
Be ready for the long-lasting treatment. Mental diseases do not go away just like a running nose. The mental disease treatment needs time, as a lot of complicated and sometimes unknown processes may take place in the brain at any time. So imagine, when a person takes quetiapine that acts directly on the brain receptors, anything may happen. Keep an eye on children while they are having Seroquel therapy.
If all recommendations and rules are followed during the therapy, and all drug ingredients are well tolerated, the positive dynamics will be achieved in the treatment. A patient will experience calmness, the serotonin level has to be restored, thinking processes will be improved.
Hallucinations and apathy should disappear, and a patient will start enjoying the life. It is essential to take proper doses of Seroquel in order to achieve good results in the treatment.
The mood swings has to be gone, and depression should disappear. It does not happen in one night. This healing process needs time. The recovery period may vary, depending on a severity of the disease and a state of a patient.
Of course, the treatment will go faster and better, if other aspects of life are taken into account. Sometimes, just taking pills is not enough. If you do not like the way of living, or constantly doing things you do not like, or eat junk food all the time, the health state will not be perfect.
How to achieve the best results in the treatment?
We are going to consider just some parts that may really change and affect the lifestyle. And we have already talked about them above. Moreover, if there is a mild depression, or mental disorder, pills may not even be used because changing the lifestyle may help.
When a patient is having Seroquel therapy, it would be good to start changing the lifestyle. It is good to start with some physical exercises. It does not mean to go to the gym and doing the dead lift. A simple walk will do. Staying on fresh air improves mood and health, the blood is saturated with oxygen, and it means that Seroquel will be better tolerated.
It is not recommended to do cardio exercises or some intensive physical exercises during the therapy, as it may load the cardiovascular system which may result in dizziness or shortness of breath. All these exercises may be done after the therapy. Moreover, serotonin level is increased during the physical exercises, and it will lead to a good mood.
It is better to avoid mixing Seroquel with other medications that are not prescribed by a physician. Even vitamins or other supplements may change the result of the treatment. It is better to warn your doctor about any over-the-counter products used before the treatment.
But food consumption should be quality and sufficient. To avoid taking additional supplements, food must be rich in all those supplements needed for our body. Eating healthy may give a good support for the body, so that all chemical compounds containing in medications will be well digested.
Moreover, try to take more clear water. It helps to support the cells and tissues of the body.
When healthy eating is organized and followed, the body will have more energy to restore itself. But as you may know, all healing processes take place during sleep. Moreover, Seroquel provides a sedative effect, it means the central nervous system is not agitated, and a patient becomes more relaxed. In this case, it is easier to fall asleep.
The human body is fully relaxed during sleep. It helps to restore the balance in the hormones, fulfill the energy, and we even get taller because the spine gets its natural length. Sometimes it is also good to have a daytime sleep. If you feel sleepy while taking the pills, do not resist this state, just take a nap. The body also heals itself during sleep. As they say, sleep is the best medicine.
And finally, take a rest! In case your therapy happens during your work (as we cannot stay long on sick leave), it is good to find a balance between your work and a rest. Otherwise, it would be hard to fully recover.
Watch your favorite movie, or stay home with your family, or be alone and listen to the music – it would be a good rest. We are different, so everyone has his/her own ways how to relax.
Reverse Side of a Coin
Any pharmaceutical product may bring positive and negative experience. No one will know how the body would react to one or another substance, or how soon the results will appear, or whether this medicine would help to solve the issues. But when you know all risks and benefits, it is easier to estimate the scale and get ready for any circumstances.
In case of Seroquel therapy, some of the side effects may happen. It varies and depends on many factors of a human body. Here is the list of some most common side effects that may occur:
- Low blood pressure
- Instant weight loss
- Attacks of depression and mania
- Serotonin syndrome
The full list of the side effects may be found in the instructions found in each pack with medicine. Do not neglect any reaction of the body. It is crucial to see them and notice them while having one or another therapy. When negative symptoms are noticed, the result of the treatment may be higher, as it gives the possibility to adjust the scheme of the treatment and the dosage regimen. Or the medicine may be replaced by another anti-psychotic or antidepressant medication.
Once our body finds resources to cope with the disease (by means of pharmaceutical products, and our support by changing the lifestyle, providing quality food, sleep and rest), the healing process becomes faster and easier. Balance and harmony should be obtained. In fact, it may be the hardest thing nowadays as our brain is overloaded with information due to the constant interaction with internet.
Yes, the modern technologies develop every day, and we have to stick to it and be well informed, but when the brain is not able to cope with it, some disorders take place. And if we look at the situation from another angle, the body may tell us to stop for a while and find resources to move on. Sometimes it is good to turn off all devices and find quietness. The body signals may be very helpful at some point. And when we learn to notice them, the life becomes easier, the human becomes happier.
Do not give up, as any problem may be solved. Sometimes it would be enough to take a deep breath and slow down. But when some negative symptoms occur more frequently, and you feel lack of energy, it is better to use a help of some specialists. Sometimes, it may be life-saving.
The world is amazing as there a lot of interesting things are going on. And we are talking about every living creature: plants, insects, animals, humans. There are still discoveries happening when a new species have been detected, or a new function of the body cell has been found.
Indeed, the world is changing, evolution takes place. The human body also gets used to our needs, and environment as it is necessary to provide better support and functioning of all human systems. For example, one of the bright examples of an adaptation to the changes in the world is wisdom teeth. By the way, do you have one?
Now doctors recommend to pull the tooth out as we do not use it, and sometimes it may lead to a deformation of the entire jaw, if the tooth is left. Scientists have already call it rudiment, and there is a tendency that in 50 to 100 years, these wisdom teeth will not be formed or created in our jaw. Is not it amazing?
Our body is unique! As a matter of fact, the human brain is still not fully examined. It is still unknown how some chemical processes take place. The connection of some neurons are still investigated. Some interaction of the cells may lead to processes that cannot be predicted, and in its turn, it leads to certain mental disorders.
If the scientists figure out how our neurons and receptors interact with each other, how the interaction of cells may lead to a development of certain diseases, it would help to develop new methods of treatment of psychological and mental diseases. Of course, a lot of processes are now explained due to the development of new technologies and methods of the investigation, but some deep layers of our consciousness still should be analyzed.

Due to the modern technologies and methods of the diagnosing, there is a possibility to detect failure, or dysfunction, or illness right in the womb. Of course, not all diseases may be manifested in that early age of our lives. But if a person knows about genetic predisposition (maybe some of the relatives have had schizophrenia, or other mental disorders), this fact should be discussed with a doctor while planning pregnancy.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to predict most of diseases or body dysfunctions, no one is immune from problems or accidents that may result in psychosis, or depression, or panic attacks, and others. Some of traumas may be acquired during adolescent. Some people are vulnerable and may be affected by the social media.
The best way to prevent serious consequences is to notice any changes in your mental health and health of your children and relatives. This will help to start a safe treatment of the disorder. Moreover, it may lead to the use of some natural methods to get rid of the negative symptoms that may bother quality living. Attention, care, and love may be the best medicine in some cases.
Signs of Psychoses
To prevent the development of more serious diseases, it is better to know some mild symptoms that may tell about dysfunctions in the brain and the whole body. There is a medical term called as psychosis. This term may be called as a general description of some mental disorders that may happen.
Psychosis is a state when a person does not feel a real connection with the reality. In fact, the reality for this person may be distorted by means of certain symptoms. Psychosis is considered a symptom of some other diseases that may be more serious or hidden in the human brain.
Psychosis belongs to the psychiatry as it touches some of the brain receptors and neurons. In case of their dysfunction, our brain may see additional images of the reality which does not correspond to the real things. The main symptoms of psychosis are:
- Hallucinations (a person sees things that do not exist)
- Disturbed thoughts
- Delusions (a person may have his/her own beliefs that are false)
These processes happen due to the chemical processes in the brain, and one of the hormones that may be responsible for these changes is dopamine. In case of the imbalance of this hormone in the body, some of the changes may happen. Of course, it is not going to result in severe mental disorder attacks, and sometimes everything may be regulated in some period, but there are cases when medical help is needed.
Psychosis may be acute and chronic. The acute psychosis may be a temporal symptom, occurring from time to time. Or it may be a result of other disorders. These may be caused by the post-traumatic syndrome, severe stress or abuse of some substances. In this case, acute psychosis may arise for the first time, and it may usually be gone in some period of time. Also, some medical products help to get rid of the negative symptoms.
Chronic psychoses may be caused by the symptoms that are the part of other diseases. Chronic psychosis requires a special attention and longer treatment. Anti-psychotic and antidepressants are usually prescribed for the treatment of the symptoms. A timely treatment will result in a good and improved health condition and quality lifestyle.
As we have mentioned, doctors believe that psychoses is just a symptom, not the disease. So if your doctor have diagnosed a chronic psychosis, it is necessary to go deeper and find a reason of all those symptoms that happen from time to time. It is better to treat the reason, not the symptoms. Otherwise, the symptom may be gone, a patient may feel good for some period of time, but when unexpected situation happens (for instance, a car breakdown, or moving houses is expected), this person may have a completely unexpected reaction. And sometimes it may lead to the serious and dangerous consequences.
|Indication||Initial Dose and Titration||Recommended Dose||Maximum Dose|

How to detect serious mental diseases?
Everybody knows, when, for instance, there is a toothache, it is necessary to go to a doctor. Or you may just take a pill and the pain will be gone. But the reason will be still there, and the toothache will happen again at any time, if this reason is not treated. This rule may be applied to our mental health.
The mental health needs to be taken care of. It also needs good food, rest and support from other cells and fibers. Our brain likes diversity. Mental health should be stimulated by different tasks: creative, technical, and relaxing. If a human has hobby, or can change his/her activity, it gives a good stimulation of the brain and all its receptors. The monotonous work on a regular basis may differ our brain.
To detect any disorder in the brain, it is good to see a specialist. Psychiatrist and psychologists help to detect any changes in the brain and cope with stress, depression, or other mental disorders. A family doctor may refer a person to this specialist in case the doctor has any doubts about the mental health.
Some of the medical tests may be taken. They will show the reaction of the body, the level of some chemical compounds in the brain, and this may indicate some dysfunctions. In order to find out more specific symptoms, a psychologist may have special sessions to provoke any memories and emotions. There is whole science about the human mental health.
As we have said, psychoses may be the first sign of more serious dysfunctions happening in your brain. These dysfunctions may include bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that is chronic, and may be also met in children starting from age of 10.
The scientists still do not know the exact reasons of the development of schizophrenia. Multiple factors may affect our brain (whether it is genetic, or acquired), even severe stress may result in the development of schizophrenia.
However, the good news is that people diagnosed with schizophrenia may still enjoy their lives and feel comfortable among other people and with their families. There is a great misbelief that all people with schizophrenia end up at the hospital, or homeless, or are dangerous to other people. Men and women are exposed to this disease equally. Due to the modern ways of the treatment, schizophrenia may be now controlled and the symptoms may be blocked, so that a person may live normal life.
The main symptoms of schizophrenia are:
- Impaired speech
- Blurred thoughts
- Distorted perception
- Abnormal behavior
Of course, the symptoms may vary, and they may be manifested differently. Some of the symptoms may lead to the problems with attention, or concentration, and it may be difficult to learn and remember new things (especially during education).
These symptoms may be also met during other mental disorders and diseases, that is why it is important to use a consultation of medical specialists. A doctor can distinguish the symptoms and human states, in order to make proper diagnose.
Bipolar disorder is now also frequently diagnosed. It is a state when mood changes rapidly: happiness and lough may suddenly be replaced by sadness and depression. These mood changes are extreme, and may happen right away. A person may cry or lough loudly, experience euphoria or irritation. These mood swings may really affect the everyday life. A person may not concentrate, the energy may drop, it is hard to make decisions.
The symptoms of the bipolar disorder may occur once a year, or be more frequent. The disease may be also accompanied by mania and depression. It can be easily controlled by means of the pharmaceutical products and some psychotherapy may be also helpful.
There are different types of bipolar disorder. Each type is characterized by its symptoms and signs. Moreover, some of the symptoms may resemble schizophrenia, or major depressive disorder, or psychoses. The types of bipolar disorder may also include depression, and mania.
- Bipolar I disorder is characterized by one manic episode that may be accompanied with some depressive episodes.
- Bipolar II disorder is characterized by manic episodes and hypomania.
- The third type is a long-lasting disease, it is called as cyclothymic disorder. It may last for several years and be accompanied with depressive periods.
There is another type of the bipolar disorder which is characterized by the disease episodes induced by drug abuse or other substances. This mental disease may happen at any age. Moreover, some of the episodes of the disease may happen at early ages (starting from early 20s). Also, if relatives have had any of the types of the bipolar disorder, the next generation may also have it.
According to the statistics, about 1% of the population are diagnosed bipolar disorder. The tendency is growing. Most people with this disease have financial issues, and problems with relatives.
The modern pace of life may be intense and cause a lot of pressure to some people. If a person does not have healthy mental health, or has a predisposition to the mental disorders, it is rather hard to resist changes happening in the world.
Of course, there are records about schizophrenia and depression met at the ancient times. But today it is growing. If a person neglects frequent mood swings, irritation, depressive states, it may lead to some negative consequences. One of the consequences may be committing suicide.
Moreover, the regular stress that is caused by the abnormal behavior, or hallucinations, will have a negative effect on other organs and systems in our body. The cardiovascular system may fail, so that the heart failure may be developed.
Also, in case of the regular use of the pharmaceutical products in order to cope with the symptoms bothering regular life, kidney and liver may suffer. The statistics shows that people having schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder, or other severe mental disorders die earlier than other people. No one is immune to any disease.
The bottom line is to be attentive to your own body and mental health. Due to the constant development of the pharmaceutical industry, medical sciences and other technologies, people may now live with diseases and enjoy the everyday life.
