It is difficult to prescribe medicines for anxiety without taking a detailed history, I am sure you have the contact number and email of your treating Dr. If he is not available please go to the Psychiatrist only and not other doctor. All anxiety pills are addicting and will cause side effects in the long run. You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms. Take a consult for specific advise for treating your anxiety using natural therapy which involves lifestyle and dietary changes.

At first doctor trying to solve the issue with Behaviour Therapy , counseling but it doesn't working anymore. Now doctor suggested to go with medicine. Now questions are much time required to cure with medicine and how does it works ? How long medicine can continue ? Is there any side effect of these medicine ? What will happen it medicine stops ? Is she has to continue medicine entire life ?

Ocd is based on fear of an abnormal kind. You have done the right thing by trying cbt and since that has not produced the desired effect, it is time to include medication. This can become a very crippling disease and you should not burden yourself or your wife with the length of time for the treatment. All psychotropic drugs have side-effects. So you will have to bear with that and focus on the main problem. Please take her parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed into these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, her belief will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in her daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself, like the washing if hands. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

I met an accident and have a grade-ii contusion of posterior horn of medical meniscus. I am following the diet & exercises. Due to pain I am not able to sleep well. I am feeling depressed a lot these days. I feel alone. I am getting angry very quickly. I am not able to concentrate well on anything. I am feeling a lot nervous, when people around my hands shake even while holding a glass of water which doesn't happen when at home. My age is 28 and I rarely used to drink, 10 times in my whole life. Even at office, I get lost in thoughts and my work rate is slow. I am loosing my confidence. How to get over this?

Dear . We understand you are going through a tough phase, but its just a phase, will go over. You can not control or change the situation, but yes you can definitely chose how to handle this difficult phase. Understand your limitations and focus on your goals. Read motivational and successful stories there are people who had suffered d more than you. Watch comedy movies focus on your qualities. Your response to adversity is a gesture of kindness for your family. It's ok. Things will be fine very soon. Stay positive.

I have lost my memory due to anxiety as referred to psychiatrist. Since I am taking prothiaden 75 mg and nextril 50 mg for couple of weeks. No sign of recovery rather I have intolerable backbone pain and severe fever especially at night. Even I have frequent panic attacks, trembling and shaking. 1. Are these medicines enough to cure both. 2. Can I take pain killer or paracetamol for pain relief? Please help me.

They do have side effects, but not all may be affected .and those affected without benefits .why they should continue .Why not shift to NATURAL treats and. It is fine to take paracetamol with ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or codeine (assuming these are appropriate for you). However, don't take paracetamol with co-codamol, co-dydramol or Tramacet because these contain paracetamol.

Dear , the best method to quit smoking habit is to stop it outright with immediate effect and pledge never to use it again. All others methods are almost useless. You can reduce the quantity and use nicotine lozenges or chewing gums to manage nicotine craving. But still the first method is much more beneficial. Please post a private question to me with more details. I will help you. Take care.

I have depression from last 25 years and earlier I used to take another medicine and from 2 years I am taking 1 pill of lamitor od 100 and 1 paradise xr 25 at night and 1 tablet of clonazepam 0.5. I want to ask if these medicines are all right and are there any side effects? Also is there any test for depression?

Dear lybrate-user, probably you have been having recurrent attacks of depression more frequently. That is why your doctor has put you on lamitor. Lamotrigine is a mood stabiliser which will reduce the severity and duration of next attack of depression. It may be increased to 200 mg if you don't get desired benefit. Your doctor might have gradually increased lamotrigine dose to prevent serious skin reaction as side effect. If you did not get skin problem in first 6 months or so, lamotrigine is a safe mood stabiliser. Other side effects are not serious. For other drugs and test for depression, please come on private questions. Do not stop drugs without consulting your doctor. If you stop your quality of life will be poor.

Hi doctor! Hope so im sharing my concern to a psychiatrist! I'm 26 years old female. For past 7 months I have been in severe guilty conscious and the stress has increased so much feeling bad of myself. Let me tell you about me first, I'm a well educated girl from respectable family with loving and more affectionate mom and dad. I'm open minded but stick to the values and ethics. Im a person who wants to be true and pure (physically and mentally) Now the problem I'm undergoing is, all my ethics and values have been lost due to the past relationships, where I thought the relationship was true, but I was ditched. I was in relationship with one for 2.5 yrs, everything was going good but as usual many misunderstandings came because of friends between me and him, many arguments. So I thought both life needs to be good in future, so I broke with him.(we were physically close, but don't cross the limits, Im virgin) After all the mental pains I went through for 6.5 months,my Ex was still insisting that we will go for another try, but as I was already frustrated with what happened, I dint change my mind. After 6 months my Ex told that he is in contact with one of our common friend and that girl is back of him and he too went for that girl because of frustration I have. Though I was not ready to take him because of fear. I wanted him to come back leaving all doubts. But when I got to know that he got committed to another one, I was completely shattered to pieces! Meanwhile I got introduced to a guy in my training and he was back of me, told like I don't want anything about your past, I want to be with you in future. First I was not convinced due to having past experience and feeling towards him. After one month, I made my mind that life should go on and it should not get stagnated. And accepted with heavy heart after seeing his acts and behaviour towards me and we fell in love. I was very true to him. I told I want some time to come out of my past, he accepted for that. Everything was fine, but later after one month he told there is no future for us! I wondered he is confused and time wil heal everything. We continued talking and meeting. We were physically​ close too (same here, dint cross the limits, I'm a still a virgin) Things dint change up even after 3 months. After training was over, I got to know he is relationship with another girl. Again broke into pieces. I felt like ditched and cheated to core. I was moving with my guilt of being physically close! I believed him and my Ex also, so I gave them space. But things changed. After few months I got to know that my Ex broke up that girl because he had intense feeling on me and some family problem from girl side for their marriage. Later we both started speaking and I told him what and all happened, he dint believe that I will do so and go for another one. He felt very bad and scolded that fellow over phone. We had and have love for each other, but because of past arguments and fights I started away. Now he is ready to take me even after knowing that I was close Intimate with that fellow. But he feels more bad and thinks A lot about it. I being more touched with self-conscience. My mind is not to ready to take what and all happened. And I don't want his (my Ex) life to be filled with memories that I was intimate with another fellow lifelong. Now my mind is full of guilt, guilt and only guilt! I'm feeling like going back to Ex who accepts after knowing all the things. Ready to speak with parents. Is not good for both our future, As the thoughts will ruin our both future! He is a person who strongly thinks about what and all happened and use to worry for it and in anger he will tell all those things and fight without knowing. This will ruin both our lives. I'm having so much guilt and feeling so sick and bad! I feel like I crossed my boundaries and made myself fall in well! Please help me out of this! thanks doctor.

Dear Lybrate user! It is very common these days to get trapped in between the value system and western lifestyle. As the time is changing rapidly it becomes difficult to differentiate between right and wrong specially at this young age. And youngsters are meant to be vulnerable to all these things. Whatever you have done may seen socially wrong and has it's consequences but life is all about moving on further. You cannot stay stuck to your past. Whatever you have done, be it right or wrong, is a part of growing up and now it is a part of your past. Past is better left in past. You cannot carry the burden of it throughout your life. If it feels you've done something wrong then try to rectify it by focusing on your career. Be a strong woman and take all the challenges that life throws at you. Now you have to recollect all the pieces once again and build your inner strength. Learn from your mistakes take a lesson and as you have said you have maintained your virginity so be proud of it and take good care of your present and future rather than staying stuck to your past experiences. You haven't lost your character. An entire life is waiting for you to embrace it. Build your strength, accept your past, learn from it and move forward. As far as your relationship with your ex is concerned then I would suggest you to think deeply and do not take any action in impulse or by being emotional because as you have shared you already had sour chemistry with each other. Now even after knowing his temper and nature and that you have shared your bad experience with him as well, and as you have written he taunts and fights with you raising the same topic again and again that means this thing has an intense impact on him so that may cause damage to both of you. So if you think it is worth to take your relationship further after knowing all the consequences will be a good idea then you have to think very carefully because marriage is a serious deal and you cannot spend your entire life with someone who questions your dignity again and again. And if you really think that your bond is strong enough to go through the storm together then go ahead. Whatever you decide, decide wisely. Life is beautiful and nothing worths spoiling it. Wish you luck :)

Dear, from the details it seems that your sister is not satisfied with her married life. You must be knowing that married life is full of adjustments and one person's right ends where the other person's right starts. A good psychological counseling should set her course right. You may ask her to talk to me over telephone. For that please ask me a private question. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, for sure it will affect your body and can cause cancer. Please quit it. You have to have will power to quit it. There are no miracle medicines. Just quit it and sustain it with will power. You may consult a deaddiction center for help. Take care.
