ATCD: He’s poly-addict with BZD in first line drug.

Symptoms

  • persecution
    • tense boarder

    • suicidal ideas

    • decrease motivation

    • decrease memory

    • violent acting

Treatment and observance

He was having TSO from ten years (buprenorphine 16 mg per day) and a large number of hospitalisation before starting the psychiatric disease treatment.

When the diagnosis was established, the treatment LAAA is administrated and the patient progressively gave up the BZD consummation.

The symptoms progressively disappeared. The only time he was hospitalised is because the withdrawal of BZD was too violent.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of schizophrenia with deficit disorders was imput to this patient when the symptoms are stand out ,specialy , when he had no drugs: the BZD, taken in exes.

Results

We observe that the number of hospitalisations has decreased from 2 since the begining of the new long acting atypical antipsychotics (LAAA).

Conclusion

We must make a difference between psychiatrics symptoms and associated drugs withdrawal clinic signs when we consider poly-drug users who are partially stabilized by a TSO.
