Patient Q&A Section

How many people get mental disorders a year in the United States?

"A survey of psychiatric diagnoses at 1 of 10 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey study sites in the United States found a rate of 0.5 per 1,000. Although the rates are similar to the estimates from the United Kingdom National Health Service (2.0 per 1,000), it is important to consider the fact that the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey is a cross-sectional study, whereas the NHS survey is a longitudinal one." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can mental disorders be cured?

"No evidence supports the possibility of cure from the perspective of the individual or of family members. Despite limitations in the assessment of cure in mental disorders, we believe that cure is unlikely to be accomplished." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of mental disorders?

"The most common features of mental disorders were [depression, anxiety and panic attacks(23% each)] and [mood swings, difficulty concentrating, and sleeping problems(17% each)]. All of the features were found most often in people living with arthritis. Symptoms of mental disorders usually occur first before, or nearly simultaneously with, symptoms of arthritis. This may be why the arthritis is not so much a condition in itself; rather, it may be a sign or symptom of other conditions such as depression, anxiety, or mood disorders. In people with arthritis, the disorder is often under-recognized and undertreated." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What causes mental disorders?

"Mental disorders are caused by different genetic, physical and psychological factors. These factors interact, to a large degree, either individually or in combination to either cause or to worsen the psychopathology and the related disability of individuals, respectively. Psychoneuroimmunology is an interdisciplinary field with strong connections at molecular, cellular and psychosocial levels. It has the prospect to play a role in discovering and improving therapeutic interventions for mental disorders." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are common treatments for mental disorders?

"Common treatments include pharmacotherapy and/or psychotherapy with or without drug therapy. Treatment of mental disorders is tailored to the individual and family and may include psychotropic agents, psychotherapeutic interventions, and other medications. A focus on effective symptom management can lead to a reduction in the length and frequency of hospitalizations and help maintain treatment and social functioning, while reducing psychiatric symptoms." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving ltq?

"This table displays the number of published clinical trials that employ Luthein, Luthellin, Luteolin, Luteolic Acid, Luteol, and Luteolina. Most such trials are small, but this information is important because it is critical to be able to differentiate and compare treatments because Luthein-based products are in very high demand." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has ltq proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"Results from a recent clinical trial of this study suggest that LST did not produce more effective results than a placebo. There is an increased risk of reporting bias with uncontrolled studies in small samples." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are the common side effects of ltq?

"We propose the idea that some side effects [that you often will experience when taking LQ] such as: headache, gastrointestinal disturbances, blurred perception of time, depression, nausea, fatigue, increased cholesterol level, increase of triglycerides, increase of uric acid levels, reduced levels of sperm concentration, and premature ejaculation would be more frequent in patients with ADHD. These side effects might be caused by the increased levels of catecholamines that are present in the body during treatment with LQ and thus, are not a direct result of the LQ itself." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the latest research for mental disorders?

"In recent years most mental disorders could be effectively treated by a combination of pharmacological and psychological treatments with the use of antipsychotics. Antipsychotic-induced tardive dyskinesia (TD) will be the newest one to be addressed in the treatment of psychiatric disorders so studies examining the risk for TD and preventive measures of TD have been published in recent years. There have been some studies in recent years where TD might be treated with pharmacological measures including clozapine, aripiprazole and risperidone." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is ltq typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"Evidence concerning LTQ's additive or complementary characteristics is limited. Clinical trials to test the therapeutic potential of LTQ and/or LTQ+other treatments in a variety of disorders would provide additional data at the bedside that may inform treatment in an individualized way." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What does ltq usually treat?

"Mild psychiatric disorders can be treated by a variety of different methods. Psychiatric treatments usually take place in a psychiatric ward setting. The vast majority of psychiatric in-patient units treat patients undergoing psychotherapy. Such patients then go onto receive outpatient psychiatric treatment in a structured psychiatric outpatient program. Psychotherapy includes mental skills training (psychology) and psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on the unconscious. The psychiatric treatment for psychodynamic patients can take place in the psychiatric hospital in the form of psychotherapy, and in a clinic setting. The aim of this treatment would be to help the patient regain his or her ability to engage in psychodynamic treatment. The focus of treatment would not be psychiatric illness, but recovery from a medical problem through cognitive or social change." - Anonymous Online Contributor
