timing of tranquiliser dose in middle aged

Postby aksay » Wed Oct 08, 2003 10:32 pm

my experience is that in the common sudden depressions and elations felt in the middle agers, timing tranquiliser dosages only at the time when the elation phase is being experienced best judged by the patient him or herself, is better than strict scheduling. Is there anything on effective timings?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but if you are talking about manic episodes in someone with bipolar disorder, the standard treatment approach is to stay on medication at all times, not just when becoming symptomatic - although that may vary slightly depending on how often the episodes occur.
