Sleep and fatigue are there in many instances. Psychomotor disturbances are rarely common; even so, they show greater severity just as it’s the case with the availability of delusional or near delusional guilt (Zimmerman et al. 2011).

Dr. Sacks discussed how L-Dopa is administered to post-encephalitic patients to replace their lack of dopamine. In theory, it should balance their chemicals and Dr. Sacks sees great improvements in them because of it. However, with the recovery of their health comes Tourette-like symptoms. To fix one thing means another problem may arise. It can be difficult to find a solution that balances out for the patients, and is important to research for this reason.
A percentage of the population doesn’t consider prescription drugs very dangerous because they are prescribed by doctors. Unfortunately, that's true and it is very concerning to other people who are aware of the problem. We as a community must help each other and inform each other about the effects prescription drugs have. These types of drugs develop addicts which can be treated effectively depending the type of drug they took. There are two main treatments behavioral treatment and medications.
Medication use is potentially dangerous. Polypharmacy is increasing, and makes it harder to keep track of side effects and interactions and of potentially inappropriate drug combinations. “The risk of serious consequences, hospitalization, and death due to medication errors increases with patients’ age and number of medications (Scand J Prim Health Care, 2012)”. For example, the GP is supposed to monitor the patient's regular medication, but does not always do so. Lack of monitoring and keeping track of patients’ medication use is a main cause when a patient is given inappropriate drugs.
Cacioppo and Freberg (2013) discussed medication and its usage in the treatment of depression and bipolar disorders.

The main treatment goal of MS is to prevent lasting neurological damage. MS treatment was confined to the treatment of symptoms but now there are disease-modifying drugs also known as DMDs. DMDs help to reduce rates of relapse, decrease the number of nervous system lesions, and slow or prevent the onset of disability. DMDs are used for treatment of relapse and for delaying disease progression in patients with RRMS. There is a DMD known as IFN used for treatment in the initial demyelinating event and it might prevent development.
Opiate withdrawal symptoms are too severe to go through on your own, which will often lead to a return to opiate addiction. A quality opiate detox program should be a medically based program complete with 24-hour nursing, 24-hour addiction treatment staff and a physician trained in addiction medicine (A.S.A.M). Opiate addiction is a very serious illness, which can lead to depression, hopelessness, and sometimes death. While opiate abuse can take many forms, the general effect of any opiate is pain relief. Depression is very common for most people in withdrawal and it can be quite acute.
affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1 percent of the population every year. Anxiety orders are very treatable however only 36.9 percent of those suffering receive treatment. In any given year the estimated percent of U.S. adults with various anxiety disorders are; 7-9 percent specific phobia; 7 percent social anxiety, 2-3 percent panic disorder; 2 percent agoraphobia, 2 percent generalized anxiety; and 1-2 percent separation anxiety. People with anxiety are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders . The causes of anxiety are currently unknown but likely involve a combination of factors including genetic, environmental, psychological, and development.
Stress and Lack of Sleep’s problems One in every three adults living in America suffers from sleep deprivation. That is 34% of all Americans. Stress and sleep deprivation are often considered the same thing despite their many differences.
