Thanks for using the forum. I am happy to address your questions, and my answer will be based on the information you provided here. Please make sure you recognize that this forum is for educational purposes only, and it does not substitute for a formal office visit with a doctor.
Without the ability to examine and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of the symptoms is. However I will try to provide you with some useful information.
Psychotic episodes can be of different types. They can be primary psychiatric diagnoses, such as schizophrenia, or they may be associated with another neurological disorder such as a movement disorder like that seen in Huntington’s disease. Furthermore, psychotic episodes may be an acute change like that seen in delirium, stroke, or seizure. Depending on the complete history, including family history, associated symptoms, and clinical examination, imaging findings will likely be in different anatomical locations. Ultimately, the correct diagnosis is needed for appropriate treatment.
It is unlikely that the psychosis is from the energy drink since it was stopped several years ago and symptoms still are present.
I would suggest you follow up with a psychiatrist who would be more appropriate to answering your question and prescribing you the appropriate medications.
Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
My first depression hit me in 2007 winter, every august from then on I would get depressed (august-feb). And the summers I would be happy but very irritable. I tried vitamin D lamps and vitamin D supplements, finding no solution. This winter of 2011-12 was the first winter since 2006 where I had periods (couple weeks) here and there where I was only very mildly depressed, about 50% of the winter i was depressed.
What Ive noticed is I have had all the symptoms of Low-Serotonin to a tee (including OCD).
I believe NO xplode has effected my brains serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine production. So I have starting taking 5htp, & L-Tyrosine.
Does this make sense? What should I be taking & doing to avoid depression?
Thankyou veryyy much. -Justin
