How To Know & Build Premarital Compatibility?

How To Know & Build Premarital Compatibility?

The happiness of finally finding your soul mate and starting a new life altogether with your partner probably leaves you with exhilaration that knows no bounds. Deciding to opt for matrimony, however, takes a lot more than what we’d usually like to barter. Most people blindly enter into civil union without first demarcating their level of compatibility which is precisely why most marriages these days are falling apart. There’s a rather good chance that you might find yourself wondering how things could be any different later since you’re so much in love now. Unfortunately, the instances of marriages where things had started off looking rosy to everyone and ultimately shattered on the grounds of incompatibility are far too many to ignore. 

By discussing your expectations and desires, along with possible areas of conflicted ideologies helps you to understand each other better in the long run so that you may not unnecessarily complicate your relationship. Reflecting exercises generally go a long way in strengthening the bond and commitment in the long run. It is fatal to expect that, as individuals from possibly different backgrounds and definitely different histories, there is going to be a zero percent space for difference in opinions and ideals. 

In order to ascertain the level of compatibility before marriage, there are a number of things that you can engage in. To begin with, here are a couple of things that need to be looked into beforehand to ensure a long lasting relationship that functions on the solid grounds of mutual understanding and good faith: 

  1. Speak openly about each other’s background and how they were brought up (especially so if it’s an arranged marriage)
  2. Finance and future expectations need to be considered
  3. Expectations pertaining to family life and having children
  4. Your ultimate goals and ambitions, and see to it if they bring you on a point of conflict
  5. Medical complications, if any
  6. Your conceptions about your partner’s family and friends
  7. Social and recreational activities

Premarital counselling is another extremely viable option for the newly engaged couples or even the ones who are contemplating marriage. Always remember that there is more to a marriage than just the wedding ceremony and walking down the aisle. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Social Anxiety - How To Let Go Your Fear?

Social Anxiety - How To Let Go Your Fear?

While being shy in unfamiliar conditions and with unknown people is normal for many people, it is considered a disorder when it starts to interfere with your life and stops you from seeking out new opportunities, meeting people or generally living your life to the fullest. The primary cause for this in most people is the fear of judgment or evaluation in the eyes of the others. Social anxiety may thus interfere with your personal as well as professional goals. Some of the ways you can take care of this problem are mentioned below.

  1. Take help from counseling or therapy: Some people may have serious issues interacting with other people in a social setting or have a fear of the stage although they want to get into public speaking and performance. In such cases, you may need to take the help of a doctor as it becomes necessary in order to be able to fulfill your professional goals.
  2. Have certain objective goals: One of the ways to overcome social anxiety disorder is to be able to achieve certain objective goals, even in social situations where there is no performance pressure. Say for example if you are with a group of people where you feel anxious, make two or three fruitful comments in your opinion in the group. This way, when you feel your voice is heard, it will help reduce social anxiety.
  3. Slowly expose yourself to incremental anxiety situations: One of the best ways to overcome anxiety is to expose yourself regularly to situations that may make you uncomfortable. You can write down a series of situations which have increased your level of anxiety. You can then expose yourself to the situation that scares you the least repeatedly until you become habituated to it. Then you can slowly move up the list and conquer each one of the socially fearful settings, one by one.
  4. Deep breathing and meditationMeditation has been seen to clear up your mind and embolden you to face difficult situations. Practicing it daily can definitely help you overcome social anxiety. Even before you are about to engage in a large social or public gathering, deep breathing helps relax your muscles and also enables you to become calmer, thus reducing social anxiety.
  5. Self-help manuals: There are a lot of manuals out there which are meant to help you deal with your social anxiety; whether it is in general, with public speaking or in a room full of guests in an informal setting. Generally, these are used in conjunction with therapy from a professional, but you can try certain self-help books which can guide you through a detailed process and help you deal with the social anxiety that you may face in certain situations.

Paranoid Personality Disorder - 12 Signs A Person Is Suffering From It!

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Allahabad

The mind is a very intricate organ and controls the entire body functioning with great precision. Any small change in its wiring would mean changes in the way a person functions, including changes of emotions and feelings.

There is a group of personality disorders known as “cluster A” personality disorders. One of the most common forms in this is a paranoid personality disorder, also known as PPD. The onset of the problem is in early adulthood and men are more likely to have this condition as compared to females. People with paranoid personality disorder are very odd or have eccentric ways of thinking. The most common way of thinking is suspicion with no reason to do so.


  1. They are always on watch or guard and believe that others are out to harm or demean them.
  2. Their belief and distrust are often unfounded, and they find it very difficult to form close relationships, either at work or at home.
  3. There is always a doubt in terms of other people’s commitment and trust, and believe that others are out to use them and often end up deceiving them
  4. Find it very difficult to confide in people, and think the information they tell others may be used against them.
  5. They are always known to hold grudges from past experiences and find it very difficult to forgive others
  6. They are not open to criticism and are extremely sensitive to what others think of them or tell them
  7. Try to read between the lines and interpret more than the obvious
  8. They are very quick to retaliate and think others are constantly attacking what they say and/or do
  9. There is a constant thread of suspicion especially of their spouses or partners, which would be completely unfounded, and add unwanted strain on the relationships
  10. Refrain from forming close relationships and keep some distance even in close relationships. They are generally cold and can be jealous and controlling of their near and dear ones
  11. Firmly believe that their thoughts and words and actions are always right and do not believe in conflict resolution. They are usually argumentative, hostile, and stubborn
  12. They always present as tense and cannot relax very easily

Causes: There is usually a past history of emotional or physical abuse, which is unresolved, leading to these symptoms. Hypnosis, which is often used to diagnose the condition, is very helpful in identifying the cause.

Diagnosis: There are specific assessment tools and questionnaires which are useful in confirming the diagnosis.

Management: Psychotherapy where the person is taught to manage the above feelings and taught to communicate and cope with others. This is often combined with antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and antipsychotics.

Hallucinations - Who Is Likely To Suffer From Them?

Hallucinations - Who Is Likely To Suffer From Them?

Be it sound or smell, vision or touch or taste, our senses help us experience the world around us. The brain always responds when there is a stimulus. So, we see an object, hear a sound, feel something, etc. When there is no stimulus, but there is still a response, it is hallucinations. This sense of something which is not real is by definition hallucinations. This could be related to past experiences or our deep inner feelings and is much more common than we think.

Most psychiatry disorders including schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and other forms of dementia start off as hallucinations.

  1. Migraines usually are accompanied by visual aura.
  2. Brain tumors can cause different types of hallucinations depending on where it is located and the corresponding area it is affecting.
  3. Epilepsy also depends on the type of seizure, different hallucinations would be seen.


  1. Visual: Seeing things which are not there, for instance, flashes of light, insects crawling on self or another person, someone standing where no one is there, etc.
  2. Auditory: The affected individual could hear voices coming from inside himself or from outside. These voices could be giving instructions to the person, calling out to him/her, or be talking to each other.
  3. Olfactory: Again, these imaginary smells could be coming from within the person or from an external source.
  4. Tactile: The affected person could feel a rush of hot air being blown, feeling of insects crawling on the body, feeling of being tickled, etc.
  5. Gustatory (taste): When something is eaten, it could taste like something completely different, which is very odd. This could be related to some past experience in some people.

Hallucinations are initial symptoms of the onset of psychiatric disorders. In fact, most of these are insidious in onset, where it cannot be exactly identified when the disease began. Therefore, if a person has hallucinations for prolonged periods, and if they are progressing, it is best to get more testing done.

Other symptoms include:

  1. Confused thoughts
  2. Disorganized speech
  3. Incoherently speech
  4. Reduced social interactions

Who is likely to experience hallucinations?

  1. A person who gets very anxious, even about small things, a fear of losing touch with reality
  2. People with migraine headaches. These suffer visual hallucinations very commonly and may also have auditory hallucinations.
  3. Children who are having a fever. They might see or hear something which is not real.
  4. People on illegal drugs like amphetamines, LSD, and Ecstacy. In fact, this is what creates addiction.
  5. Sudden withdrawal from alcohol or drugs. It is always advisable to withdraw from illicit drugs under supervision as hallucinations are very common.

Alcohol - How Over Consumption Affects Your Body?

Alcohol addiction commonly known as alcoholism is a fairly common problem that has shown to affect people from every walk of life. Scientists have tried to pinpoint the absolute cause behind alcoholism, but to no success. Certain factors like sex, genetic, and socioeconomic factors have shown to have some effect on alcoholism. The cause of alcoholism is never singular. Alcohol addiction is indeed a disease, where a person may not have full control over his actions and is seen to change the neurochemistry of the brain.

The symptoms of alcohol addiction can be seen in many ways and the severity of the situation varies from person to person. Other factors such as the frequency of consumption may also be specific. While some people are heavy drinkers and drink throughout the day; others may drink occasionally and remain sober for a few days.

A person who is dependent on alcohol will prioritise drinking over other essential activities and will eventually cause disruption in his social life, work or other areas of his life. It can also create a negative effect in the victim’s life along with their families and their near and dear ones.

What are the signs of alcohol addiction and alcohol abuse?

  2. Lack of adequate sleep, followed by overcompensation for sleep.

It is important for you that, do not critically analyse it and constantly measure your efficiency. Fear of failing to preform well i.e. Performance anxiety should be avoided. For premaure ejaculation there is no precise duration for reaching a climax. Infact it is variable and depends on many factors related to individuals engaging in sexual activities. It is a psychological problem not represent any organic cause. Now come for your basic questions, Since you are unmarried, so it is very important to communicate with your future partner as it can make the difference between having sex for sake of it and having enjoyable time. Now come to your second question, actually FDA has not approved any drug for premature ejaculation as per se, but in some clinical trials dapoxetine (fast acting serotonin reuptake inhibitor) has been shown to be effective in improving the time to ejaculation without major side effects, except nausea. Tlking to expert might help.

History is brief in order to give appropriate advice. On the basis of description given by you, first of all depression has to be established, some antidepressants drugs have the adverse effects of tremors (kampan) also. Detailed treatment history, any associated medical condition should be finf out, since it also might leads to b12 deficiency. In my opinion consult any good psychiatrist with all old records. It might help.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication. She is 35 and is taking alkepin 200 mg. We have come to know about DHA derivatives of clozapine (clozaprexine) which is considered to be highly safe and with high bioavailability. You are requested to kindly help us by informing availability of clozaprexine in India. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Mr. lybrate-user, I would like to tell one thing, schizophrenia is chronic illness. Basically it requires anti psychotic drugs for treatment. There are numbers of anti psychotic drugs availabale in market for treatment of Schizophrenia. Some drugs are FDA approved, some are superior in one trial but not in other trial. Some are popular in few countries but not FDA approved. Actually selection of proper antipsychotic depends on number of conditions viz. Age, sex, duration of illness, associated co morbid condition, any medical condition, substance history, organicity, prior drug response, socio-economical status etc. As in your case female patient having auditory hallucinations, probably case of schizophrenia needs proper medication consedering above mentioned condition. Now come to your basic question, she is taking clozapine 200 mg. It is also very efficacious drug. You talked about clozaprexine. It is considered as a prodrug of clozapine. It is investigational new drug, originally created at Harward University. Atype of fatty acid (DHA) was added to clozapine in order to increase penetration of blood brain barrier. This drug was initially tested in rats, but no obvous findings have been found in subsequent studies. It is not currently available in INDIA. Ihope it might help you.
