My mother 63 years is suffering from parkinson (PD) since 2013 is on syndopaplus (7 am&12 pm) and syndopa (3 pm) medication 3 times a day when syndopa withdraws thereby inducing stiffness & rigidity resulting in seizure thereby finding very hard to move and not even able to getup from bed or chair without assistance. Neurologist has now prescribed Bromocriptine 2.5 mg along with syndopa (twice 7 am & 7 pm) to mitigate syndopa side effect. Can this be taken at 7 am and 3 pm instead of 7 pm as the last syndopa taken is at 3 pm or any other alternatives suggestions is welcome.

Simple answer is No. Syndopa has very short effective concentration in blood & hence as soon as it's blood levels begin to decrease, thereby decreasing it's brain levels, your mother starts getting movement related difficulties If you feel she is not getting optimal treatment, discuss with your doctor about other effective medicines like Ropinirole, pramirole etc to increase efficiency of Syndopa combination. But don't change time of medication administration.

Attachment Disorder - How It Can Affect You?

Attachment Disorder - How It Can Affect You?

While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.

What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.

Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes

  1. Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
  2. Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
  3. Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
  4. Neglected children
  5. Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
  6. Children living in extreme poverty
  7. Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
  8. Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression

Symptoms
There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.

  1. Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
    • Detached
    • Withdrawn
    • Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
  2. Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
    • Seek attention
    • Display inappropriate behavior
    • Frequently break social boundaries
    • Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.

Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:

  1. Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
  2. Low self esteem
  3. Depression
  4. Anger management
  5. Academic problems
  6. Unemployment
  7. They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering premature ejaculation within 10 to 20 seconds. What will do? Mangrove 50 helps me?
No, that particular tablet won't help you Premature ejaculation is a psychological condition depicting underlying worry & insecurity about own sexual performance or due to lack of privacy. So, you need to address your 'Worry & insecurity' issue first up. You can try simple deep breathing exercises before attempting Sexual intercourse In addition, ask your partner to gently push tip of your erect penis down before vaginal insertion that can help you control ejaculation flow. If this doesn't work, consult me online good luck.

Hello too many times, gym lovers buy protein supplements for better muscular growth. But these protein supplements can contain Steroids steroids can impair sexual performance. So I'll suggest that keep a simple diet as you took before & you can use Soya bean as a good protein supplement if this doesn't improve your sexual performance, consult a Psychiatrist. Good luck.

Managing yourself during Depression

Managing yourself during Depression

Ignoring or dismissing that growing "Sadness" will only make you Sadder! Managing yourself during Depression

NO one wants to be unhappy. We can mostly accept this as universal truth. We often actively seek to avoid unhappiness even though it does come for all of us: breakups,failure, disappointments, frustrations at work, relationships or other areas of life
In the last 20 years or so, there’s been an increasing amount of discussion about happiness, the importance of happiness, how to seek happiness, where to locate happiness, and anything else you can think of. So much so that a new branch of psychology called as Positive Psychology is now firmly established. Not to mention ever increasing self help industry

Happiness can be compared to mountaintop & sadness can be compared to flat stretch of ground. So basically both happiness and sadness work the same way. Without one, the other can’t be defined. Both lie on opposite spectrum of one peculiar human emotion 
When you consistently try & avoid Experiencing sadness, then, you reduce happiness in your life too. Life is ultimately about experiencing different aspects and locations. Avoiding sadness often means avoiding experiences. As you avoid sadness, you paradoxically also avoid happiness — and you drown your thinking in things that may not actually happen.

So what to do??

Change is part of life & change is the only constant! Accept this fact
When we are battling with feeling of sadness, we need to constantly remind ourselves that Yes, we are trudging barren flat patch of land but the Peak (I.e. Happiness) lies ahead & we shall surely reach there!

Daily To Do tasks

1. Be aware of your everyday emotions, you will realize that you’re happier on some days and sadder on others. A bad day happens only occasionally. Instead of focusing on the unpleasant moment right now, flash back your memory to when you feel happier. This memory keeps you going during your down times.

2. Write down your achievements (howsoever small they may be, like I reached my workplace 5 minutes before time..) every night before going to bed, or do a “3-1” model where you write down 3 daily achievements and 1 Failure in constructively negative spirit of improvement. At the end of a week, you have 21 positives and 7 things to work on. It gives you a good baseline for next week’s progress.

Tips for Building And Improving Confidence!

Tips for Building And Improving Confidence!

"Approaching life without confidence will cost you much to second doubt yourself.- author unknown"

Does ''Confidence'' as a trait comes naturally? I guess Not! Confidence never came naturally to me. it may not have been a Natural gift for you also. So how to Build or Improve this valuable gift?

1. Self confidence can never be found outside. It is something that only GROWS from within. No matter how much you look, or where you look, no matter how much praise you do or do not get, you will never find confidence unless it comes from within.
Confidence almost always GROWS from working though difficulties,by consistently doing what we Love to do or what we feel naturally curious about, or feel genuinely attracted to.
Some people call it PASSION, others might merely call it as curiosity. Different words, same intended meaning...
For example, a naturally gifted computer programmer cracking code of a difficult programme, or an athlete who Bests his/her previous landmark

2. Confidence comes when challenges are overcome.

When we learn to struggle & overcome hitherto perceived insurmountable difficulties, it feels good, and there’s a great deal of satisfaction. From this satisfaction comes confidence. For example, Rohit Sharma scoring a double ton in one day cricket for record 2nd time & that too a record score! (264 runs)

3.Confidence grows from pushing past doubt and criticism.

There will be setbacks and disappointments. There will be failures because major breakthroughs often require trial and error. One needs to be patient with wasted efforts because these are the very things which show us the correct path. Pushing out of our comfort zone and getting past these challenging situations are other factors in growing confidence.

“If you’re going through hell, keep going!! - author unknown”

4.The key to self confidence is to Keep calm & carry on.
With every challenge you face and overcome, your confidence will grow to face the next. Welcome the challenges that come, don’t avoid them, because there lies the Next Big potential for growth.

Is panazep 25 habit forming? Can any one drink alcohol occasionally during the paroxetine treatment.
No, it's not habit forming if you take it exactly as advised by your doctor since it's used in anxiety disorders or major depressive disorders. Both are made worse by alcohol consumption, so you should avoid drinking while simultaneously on treatment.

Premature ejaculation (PME) usually means you are ejaculating within 10-15 seconds of entry into vagina or you or wife or both partners are not getting sexual satisfaction even after ejaculation. Most important cause of PME is hidden anxiety on part of male (it can be due to lack of adequate privacy, history of multiple partners or past history of multiple failures in erection & penis insertion) PME can also occur due to lack of proper romance/foreplay in couple before sexual intercourse. You along with wife should visit a Psychiatrist followed by a Gynecologist for detailed physical examination, counselling & necessary medicines. Good Luck.

Hello. Skin tight dress or so called normal dress of a female only represents attitude of a male dominated society & its lust. Some things are naturally ingrained like view automatically going towards legs, hips & chest.

Hello, Simplest way of generating more breast milk is physical contact with baby as much as possible & also encouraging your baby to latch on to & suck nipples as much as possible (even if there is NO breast milk). Another trick is gently massaging your breasts & expressing milk droplets by gently squeezing breasts. Milk production in women is dependent on hormone oxytocin (or hormone of mothers love) & Oxytocin secretion (which in turn will help breast milk production) is dependent upon cuddling, fondling, physically touching your baby & baby sucking nipples (which activates milk secreation reflex acrc in your body) All the Best.

Well, if your anxiety is overwhelming (which it seems from your phrasing the question & your medicine Melzap-MD 0.25 mg) you will need a combined approach of medicines & lifestyle changes. First is deliberately put yourself in way of your FEARS Second keep a diary & make a list of all your fears. Grade these fears 1-10 (1 being highest & 10 being lowest) Third, go to a Psychiatrist & keep discussing your progress in conquering this fear hierarchy/fear list. He/she can give you valuable inputs/modifications/suggestions to make your progress easier & faster. Lastly with suggestion of Psychiatrist, take regular course of medications to hasten your recovery. All the Best.

Lets deal with Job issue first. This is a logical though exaggerated reaction of Stress & anxiety happening due to low self esteem. You need to first set goals (what exactly do you want, what job, what salary, work hours etc.) You need to keep believing in your ability to get that Dream Job (use positive affirmations) Update your resume/CV by taking new affordable online courses, distance education Find a buddy/mentor with whom you can discuss these issues & seek an honest third person view on your current state Do daily exercise (30 min cardio works best!). It actually sharpens cognition & makes your brain work better. Lastly, if anxiety persist, seek help of Psychiatrist. All the Best.
