Question: repeating the same sentences again and again

 crisscross - Sat Jan 03, 2009 4:23 am

i think i suffer from palilalia and/or schizophrenia.i repeat the same sentences again and again involuntarily.I don't get hallucinations as such.but when i am provoked by some incident i repeat the same sentences again and again and get anxious.I become restless and one day I even felt some loosening of nerves in my head and get tired easily.I can't concentrate for long hours and so cannot go to work.What is the remedy or treatment for this?The drugs given to me for schizophrenai was olazapine which caused diabetes and premature ovarian failure.what is to be done now?

Hello Crisscross,

You did not mention how long you have been having your symptoms. While late onset schizophrenia does happen, it is not common. The symptom you describe may also be due to an obsessive-compulsive disorder, which can also be an expression of intense anxiety. Your question indicates that you have sought treatment which has not been very effective. You were right on target to seek mental health evaluation and treatment. Please discuss in detail the issues you describe with your mental health professional, and if that person is not a psychiatrist, ask for a referral to see one. You may also consider getting a second opinion regarding your current diagnosis of schizophrenia to be sure you are receiving the most appropriate treatment. You did a clear, coherent description of your problem, which indicates that your treatment is effective, and may just need tweaking with a different medication and/or focus of treatment. Good luck to you, and don't hesitate to contact us again if needed.

thanks a lot Doctor.The symptoms are severe for the past 5 years.Earlier they showed a bit at age 15-20 years but were severe in the last 5 years.I was constantly muttering irrelevant senteneces again and again.One day there was a sudden reaction sort of in my brain.I felt as if my nerves/blood vessels have loosened up and then I started feeling tired very often.If i worked for more than 1 hour I felt tired.I do not feel proper in the mind and feel as the mind is extremely tired.immediate fatigue.
The psychiatricst said i suffer from paranoid schizophrenia and gave me Nexipride thrice daily.
