Use cautiously and with increased monitoring, especially when starting or increasing dosages. Do not induce emesis; gastric lavage or activated charcoal may be performed soon 121 after ingestion or if patient is still symptomatic. Because drug undergoes extensive distribution, forced diuresis, dialysis, hemoperfusion, and exchange transfusion are not helpful. For moderately depressed outpatients, usual maximum dose is 225 mg daily; in certain severely depressed patients, dose may be as high as 375 mg daily. Use cautiously and with increased monitoring at the start of therapy and with dose increase. Symptoms may include agitation, insomnia, anxiety, aggressiveness, or panic attacks. Use together cautiously, especially at the start of therapy or at dosage increases. If patient does not improve, increase dose by 10 mg daily at intervals of at least 1 week to a maximum of 50 mg daily. Available in suspension – 10 mg/5 ml; Tablets – 10 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, and 40 mg; Tablets controlled release – 12.

artane 2mg with visa

In the above extract 2mg artane amex, Ross talks about a past experience of non- adherence discount artane 2mg with mastercard, which he attributes to feeling frustrated about having to take medication for so long generic 2mg artane amex. Ross, an older consumer who is typically adherent, emphasizes the vast amount of medication he has taken over the years (“ever since I was a child I always had to take medication for different problems I’ve had”). When asked, Ross states that he could not remember what it was like to be off medication. Ross frames his frustration as leading to a past rejection of his medication schedule (“you just get sick and tired of taking them…I went off them”). It is possible that Ross, following years of medication treatment, was testing whether he still required medication at this stage. Thus, whilst Ross did not lack an awareness of having a mental illness and requiring medication, his response to the realisation that he had to continue taking a significant amount of medication for the rest of his life 108 was met with frustration and resignation, which lead him to stop taking his medication in spite of better knowledge. That is, some consumers who attempt to integrate information from their psychosis rather than use defensive denial, may be more prone to react depressively to new insight (Amador et al. Ross’ resignation and non-adherence could have been a manifestation of a depressive response to the knowledge that he would have to take medication for the rest of his life. Interview data overwhelmingly suggested that the various forms of insight discussed exert an influence on medication adherence. Awareness of having an illness, awareness of the consequences of the illness, and awareness that the illness is chronic and requires lifelong medication treatment could represent a continuum of insight. That is, at different stages of their illnesses and as experiences are acquired, different types of insight may become more or less relevant to consumers. In the following extract, Travis deploys a metaphor to describe the process of gaining all of the aforementioned forms of insight during the course of the illness: Travis, 19/02/2009 T: Mental illness matures and the thing is, uh, the way I see it is, when you first get an illness and you don’t accept it, it’s like you’re a little kid trying to fight this big adult, right and then over the years, as you get on the right medication and you accept it and you start becoming well, eventually that adult becomes the kid and you’re the adult, you know, so you slowly tip the 109 balance and start dominating the illness so you can start controlling it and get your life back, you know and start doing things again and feeling good about yourself, you know. In the above extract, Travis constructs acceptance of mental illness and medication adherence as occurring “over the years”, with experiences and as the “mental illness matures”. He likens the denial and lack of acceptance which, he suggests, typically occur when consumers are first diagnosed to “a little kid trying to fight this big adult”. The metaphor of a child attempting to overpower an adult could be seen to function to emphasise the lack of control that mentally ill consumers who are in denial have over their illnesses. According to Travis, as time passes, and following trials, consumers eventually find “the right medication” and experience associated symptom alleviation (“you start becoming well”), the power gradually shifts from the adult to the child (“so you slowly tip the balance”). That is, Travis could be seen to imply that the consumer gains control over their illness, which becomes substantially easier to manage (“start dominating the illness so you can start controlling it”). Travis highlights the benefits associated with consumers gaining control over their illnesses which he identifies as enhancing productivity, self-esteem and lifestyles. In summary, Travis’ metaphor attributes acceptance of mental illness and recognition of the need for medication, which is gained from positive experiences with a suitable medication in particular, to medication adherence and stability. The following extract also colourfully describes with metaphors, the progression through the continuum of insight, from denial of having an illness towards acceptance: 110 George, 14/08/2008 G: Oh, to tell you the truth, sticking to your medication’s hard, I’m not, don’t know why. I found it hard when I first like, you know, sorta in denial, you don’t really wanna believe you’re sick and you don’t want help. Then you just, it’s like becoming religious, you’ve gotta let the Lord into your heart. It doesn’t happen straight away, you know, you’ve gotta go a few times before you experience it an’ that, you know what I mean? L: Yeah, I see what you’re saying, so yeah, at first it’s like, so did you find at first it was more difficult, because you were like, “whatever, I’m not sick”. Ah, it didn’t really bother me, but I just thought, you know, it’s like when you, when you’re young and you get harassed by the cops, like “piss off copper” you know, “oh what’d you say young fella I’ll take you back with me” (laughing) “ah, I’m yours copper”! In the above extract, George emphasizes the difficulty of being adherent, especially during the early stages of illness. Basing his summary of adherence on his own experiences, George states that initially consumers are typically “in denial” about having a mental illness, thus, will not take medication on the grounds that they believe there is no need for medication (“you don’t really wanna believe you’re sick and you don’t want help”). George then compares acceptance of the need for medication to “letting the Lord into your heart”, possibly inferring that religious belief is similar to believing in the need for medication to treat illness symptoms. George could be seen to elaborate that the process of enlightenment (or acceptance of 111 adherence) is not immediate but may evolve as a result of experiences (“It doesn’t happen straight away, you know, you’ve gotta go a few times before you experience it an’ that”). George then deploys a police metaphor to explain how first episode consumers may view medication. Such a metaphor could be seen to imply that medication represents a means of social control for George. He states that initially, young people being approached by the police respond with defiance, which could be seen to represent first episode consumers’ denial of their illness. George elaborates that once police threaten consumers with negative consequences, they become compliant (“ah, I’m yours copper”!

The extent to which individuals with diagnoses of schizophrenia adhere to their antipsychotic medications is considered an important influence on their outcomes. Whilst medication adherence amongst people with schizophrenia has been studied extensively, the majority of research has been quantitative and thus, the voices of consumers have largely been neglected. One reason that has been proposed for this absence is the assumption that people with schizophrenia would not be able to provide meaningful contributions to knowledge. This thesis aims to redress the dearth of consumers’ voices in adherence research by examining their perspectives through qualitative interviews. Analysis of interview data supports the significant value of the inclusion of consumers’ voices in research to enhance understanding of medication adherence. According to Freedman (2005), schizophrenia is a chronic disability of mental and social function, with superimposed, recurrent episodes of exacerbated psychotic symptoms, such as delusions and/or hallucinations. Despite being considered one of the most severe, disabling and economically draining mental illnesses (Picchioni & Murray, 2007), Schneider (2010) points out that people diagnosed with schizophrenia can and do participate in valued social roles and lead satisfying, productive lives, consistent with research on 1 recovery in schizophrenia (Liberman & Kopelowicz, 2005; Resnick, Rosenheck & Lehman, 2004). This chapter will summarise the symptoms of schizophrenia according to the medical model. This is followed by a discussion of the social constructionist position as an alternative perspective for understanding mental illness and schizophrenia in particular. An understanding of what schizophrenia is and the epidemiology of schizophrenia has been included in an attempt to contextualise the sample of interviewees, by describing the accepted view of what people with schizophrenia in the general population experience in terms of illness symptoms as well as the associated outcomes. Critically, some of the unsettling statistics regarding the significant impact that schizophrenia has on the lives of consumers and the community reinforce the benefits of research aimed at improving the outcomes for people with schizophrenia. A clinical diagnosis of schizophrenia requires the presence of delusions and/or hallucinations, formal thought disorder and unusual behaviour lasting for at least one month, with significant social and occupational deterioration experienced prior or subsequent to psychotic symptoms (Picchioni & Murray, 2007; Sharif, Bradford, Stroup & Lieberman, 2007). People with a diagnosis of schizophrenia typically experience symptoms which are consistently described by the dominant medical model of clusters of positive, negative and cognitive symptoms. However, some individuals may predominantly experience symptoms from positive or negative clusters, respectively (Cutting, 2003). Positive symptoms are so called because they are considered an addition to a person’s repertoire (Birchwood & Jackson, 2001). Positive symptoms include things such as delusions, unusual thoughts and suspiciousness, paranoia, hallucinations and distorted perceptions typically considered to be manifestations of psychosis (McEvoy, Scheifler & Frances, 1999). Negative symptoms are those that are evident by the blunting of motivation and emotion; for example, social withdrawal, lack of energy, loss of sense of pleasure, inability to make decisions, limited speech and poor self care (Smith, Weston & Lieberman, 2009). Negative symptoms persist even in the absence of positive symptoms during periods of remission; however, they may be secondary to other factors, such as depression (McGorry, 1992). Cognitive symptoms common to people with schizophrenia include problems with attention, learning new information, memory, verbal fluency, problem solving, recognising social cues, confused thinking, disorganised speech and disorganised behaviour (Freedman, 2005; McEvoy et al. It is estimated that approximately 75% of people with schizophrenia have clinically meaningful deficits in at least two cognitive domains and 90% have deficits in one (Sharif et al. An alternative medical model of schizophrenia that is also often deployed by researchers is comprised of clusters of positive, negative and disorganised symptoms (Beck, Rector, Stolar & Grant, 2009; Cutting, 2003; Sharif et al. Such models typically group cognitive impairments (such 3 as impairments in attention, learning, memory and perception) in the negative symptom cluster. Disorganisation symptoms include disordered thought processes, bizarre behaviour and disturbances of emotions or inappropriate affect (Cutting, 2003; Sharif et al. Specifically, the paranoid type describes individuals who experience delusions (persecutory or grandiose) or hallucinations but thought disorder, disorganised behaviour and negative symptoms are absent. Individuals are diagnosed as the disorganised type when they present with both thought disorder and flattened affect. The catatonic type defines those who exhibit agitated, purposeless movement or are immobile. The undifferentiated type is diagnosed in cases when psychotic symptoms are present but do not meet criteria for the paranoid, disorganised or catatonic types. The residual type is diagnosed when individuals experience mild positive symptoms only. The above descriptions of schizophrenia are based on the current, dominant construction of schizophrenia as a mental illness or pathology, in line with psychiatry’s medical model. Schneider (2010) highlights the fact that schizophrenia has not always regarded as an illness in line with the current dominant medical model of health, as the ever-changing historical accounts of schizophrenia or “madness” indicate. There is also a significant social constructionist literature which suggests that “schizophrenia” is but a disease metaphor which has gained acceptance as a bio-psychiatric entity despite a lack of evidence (Wise, 2004).
