Anyone with schizophrenia getting off their meds for any reason should be cause for alarm.

Since the end of the sacred month of Ramadan, Moroccan psychiatrists are seeing appear in their office some of their patients who suddenly stopped their medical treatment during the sacred month in order to better devote themselves to the fast. “Each year, after the month of Ramadan, we see the same phenomenon. There is a resurgence of mental illnesses, not because of nostalgia experienced at the end of Ramadan but because patients haven’t followed their treatment to the letter or reduce the dose of their medication without a medical opinion,” explains Driss Moussaoui, psychiatrist for around forty years and director of the psychiatric centre at the University of Ibn Rochd. “When I ask them if they stopped their treatment during Ramadan, they are not going to try and lie. They tell me in all honesty that they stopped it”, he says.

In this post-Ramadan period, the psychiatrists witness a resurgence of illnesses such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorders such as manic-depression or even epilepsy. “However, we tell our patients not to interrupt their treatment during Ramadan because of the risks incurred for their state of health. They are informed. We make the suggestions but they make the decisions!” adds Driss Moussaoui.

  1. I always thought that Islam was a mental illness, so if Ramadan leads to an increase then that’s double trouble!

  2. Another thing, something that I’ve always wanted to say about your yellow screaming mustard icon:

    Who is that guy? I’ve seen him before. He looks like a British Muslim who has been photographed a few times at demos. I can see why you picked him for your mustard theme, because he’s got the face of a possessed nutcase, plus he’s one of the ugliest motherfuckers I’ve ever seen in my life!
    Muslim women have it tough. Not only do they have husbands who beat them and enslave but hardly any of them look like George Clooney.
    If I was married to Mr. Mustard, I’m sure that I’d be eagerly strapping on the suicide vest just so that I could escape seeing his grotesque mug every day!

    1. He’s the rage guy from a number of blogs, that slotted him in numerous pics by the big wire services.
