Neuroleptics

Posted by Max G on May 21, 2001 at 21:36:06:

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me what could happen if someone had brain damage (to the right and left temporal lobes and also to the posterior lobes) Neuroleptics were prescribed to treat psychotic episodes for a duration of 1-2 years time(a diagnosis of schizophrenia was the only determination) When the Neuroleptics were prescribed, There was no awareness concerning the brain damaged portions of the brain which at that time was unknown.(The proof of the brain-damaged areas come from a B.E.A.M. test) Can the prescribed Neuroleptics have caused further damage or even have precipitated additional damage to the brain? Thank you.

Hi, Max.

See my response to the note today about "negative effects of antidepresants"?

Thanks doc Stoll, I could only find your posting to Mary about the anti-depressents and how they could permanently have an effect on the structure and function of the brain. My question was regarding neuroleptics not SSRI, But I guess maybe it relates to that also. You wouldn't happen to know what could possibly cause brain damage in the areas of the 'Right temporal and Left Temporal lobes and the Occipital portion of the brain' ? That is what the b.e.a.m. test results produced. I know it is not a very specific question and there could be many answers, but just a majority list of what potentially may be the cause would be great! Thank you.

Hi, Max.

Neuroleptics include ALL psychoactive drugs. There are MANY causes of damage to CNS tissue. Until 20 years ago, it was believed by everyone that brain cells could not repair or replace themselves after puberty. Until last year few people knew that brain tussue regularly replaces and repairs itself throughout life.

That means that, given the healthiest mileau, that most brain problems can be reversed. That mileau, so far, can only be produced by wellness.

High does of B complex and essential oils seem to be the most specific thihgs to take (so far) to help brain tissue.

Hope this helps.

Walt
