The deceased National Accountability Bureau investigation officer, Kamran Faisal, suffered from various mental illnesses including schizophrenia, delusions, manic-depressive psychosis, anxiety disorder, insomnia, amnesia, and suicidal depression, say media reports.
A private TV channel acquired medical reports including details of his psychopathy. Reports show Kamran had been under the treatment of a psychiatrist, Dr Azra.
One of the prescriptions shows she had diagnosed him with almost all the psychological disorders mentioned above.
In one of her remarks on a report, she wrote, Kamran had suicidal tendencies. Kamran’s psychosis peaked in the year 2012, say media reports.
It must be mentioned that since 1999, Kamran was on Olanzia, a local brand of Olanzapine, a drug prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of thought processes and poor emotional responsiveness.
Common symptoms include auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking, and it is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction.
The onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with a global lifetime prevalence of about 0.3–0.7%. Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the patient’s reported experiences.
