Euphoria: Treatments Inroduction

Treatment plans for euphoria are individualized depending on the cause, the presence of coexisting diseases, the age and medical history of the patient, and other factors. Treatment generally involves a multifaceted plan that addresses the underlying or associated cause and helps to moderate behavior so a person can function effectively and lead as active and normal a life as possible.

Treatment of mental health disorders may include a combination of medications, regular ongoing mental health care and psychotherapy. Treatment of drug use and alcohol use that results in alcohol abuse or alcoholism includes medical detoxification programs, rehabilitation programs, addiction recovery programs, psychotherapy and ongoing medical and psychological monitoring.

Alzheimer's disease can cause euphoria, but there is no treatment that can cure or slow the progression of the disease. However, medication may help people with Alzheimer's disease to improve cognitive functioning and moderate extreme emotions, such as euphoria.

Euphoria can be an early symptoms of hypoxia (a lack of oxygen in the body's tissues). Hypoxia is treated with supplemental oxygen and by treating the underlying cause of hypoxia, such as COPD. Treatment of altitude sickness includes moving to a lower altitude, ensuring good hydration and supplemental oxygen in some cases.

Treatment of hyperthyroidism includes anti-thyroid medications. Radioactive iodine may be used to destroy the thyroid and stop the excess production of thyroid hormones. In some cases, surgery may be needed to remove the thyroid.

Head injury, petit mal seizures and temporal lobe epilepsy that cause euphoria generally need to be evaluated and treated by a neurologist and/or neurosurgeon. Petit mal seizures and temporal lobe epilepsy are treated with antiepileptic drugs, such phenytoin, primidone, valproate, carbamazepine and phenobarbital. Special diets and surgery may be done in some cases.
