A few days ago, I read a report listed on 'Nature' journal that discussed the effects that some antipsychotic drugs like Clozapine and Zyprexa had on mice. These drugs caused an overproduction of an enzyme in their brains which is responsible for increasing appetite. Just when you think you have almost won the battle against Bipolar Disorder, you realize that you have been fooling yourself all along and suffer a massive setback.
I know what medical non-compliance means. I had lived about three years without the prescribed drugs and medicines when I was in college. I remember how I had spiraled out of control and ran home to my parents seeking their help desperately. I remember what it was like when I did not take those medicines, and I am glad that I decided to get back on track.
