Schizophrenia

Recommended Posts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEXyqe85cuA

 

Last year, Janssen pharmaceutical company tried to make mentally healthy people feel like they were having a psychotic episode. As the manufacturer of both Invega Sustenna and Risperdal Consta, two of the most prescribed drugs for paranoid schizophrenia, Jassen has a stake in making people understand the pain and confusion attendant to this mental illness. To give doctors and psychiatrists a glimpse into the mindset of a paranoid schizophrenic, Jassen brought an 11 seat multi-sensory, virtual-reality theater dubbed “Mindstorm” to 11 mental health and psychiatry conferences around the US. The video above comprises just the visual element of Mindstorm’s fully immersive environment.

 

If you want to know what it feels, smells, and tastes like to make a break with reality, contact Jassen for a demo. They are headquartered in New Jersey.

wow...that video was really weird.

 

the only thing i could think of though, is do people who speak another language hear voices in that language?

like when the weatherman is talking to you, do you hear him speaking in say spanish for example?

do the voices also really tell the people NOT to take their meds?

how do physicians get their patients to take them then?

i can't imagine all schizophrenic patients being sent to a psych ward.

i remember sitting in on a medical school lecture one day, at a very prestigious medical school, and the topic of that lecture was schizophrenia.

 

it was interesting.

 

they spent a good half an hour talking about how cannabis can worsen the effects of schizophrenia.

thats an interesting comment about the weed Calig. I read somewhere that schizophrenics naturally have higher levels of dopamine. Same with Tourette's and ADHD. Marijuana is known to boost levels of dopamine, so it makes sense.

It is a really interesting subject, my mum worked in the mental health field for quite some time and schizophrenia is such a general word for peoples different conditions.

 

Any sort of drug/alcohol can really make the mental health of a patient go down hill, as for taking meds, it depends on what sort of state the patient is in. If they have been off their meds for a while then their grip on reality is going to be much worse then getting them to take them is a lot harder because they are probably in the stages of a full blown psychotic episode. However some patients come of their meds because of the voices or whatever, but they also know they should be taking the meds so they have that whole internal struggle going on.

 

But this is definitely a interesting subject, I watched the video from the first post but wasn't impressed with that, it seemed so tame, that sort of shit wouldn't bother me at all, they should have had more sense of panic/urgency and more visual interuptions to the thought process. That just seemed like a normal video with some highschool kids being bitchy in it.

My uncle is schizophrenic....he brought it on thru crazy pyschedelic/stimulant use.

 

It basically ruined his life, no job in the last 30 years, been on disability.

 

There was a year that he spoke onlyh in gibberish rhyme....for a wile he thought keith harrington from the rolling stones was following him.

 

I can't imagine it, pretty sad. I wouldn't take anything to simulate mental illness, seems like a bad idea.

Annnnnnnd THIS is why I quit smoking weed.

I feel a lot like that when I'm stoned.

I used to think I had a weed induced anxiety.

Now I'm terrified I may be borderline schiz.

Oh noes,
