What is the difference between psychologist & psychiatrist? Which one cures depression?
Hello lybrate-user. Psychiatrist can prescribe medicine but psychologist not he/ she counsel this is the difference. In depression both treatment useful rather needed medicine plus parallelly counseling.

I am suffering from acute back pain and pain in the thigh and left hip for the last two months even after taking all medicine and physiotherapy treatment and homeopathic treatment. I slipped while coming out from a lift in the month of May after I returned after visiting my ailing brother who has been diagnosed with rapidly progressive dementia and his condition is deteriorating day by day. My parents are not alive and he is the only one who can come in high and low times. I become so much depressed after seeing him in such a state. I keep on crying and praying for my brother recovery but Dr. said it is incurable. I don't know what to do. My family and kids are also suffering due to my condition but I am unable to keep control on my emotions. Please guide me what to do. Thanks a lot for your help.

Some facts in life are to be accepted as they are. Some chronic ailments lie dementia have a defined course. Your attached emotions with your brother are understandable, but your feelings and emotions seem to be dominated by sadness and negativism towards self and surroundings. This definitely suggests a depressive disorder which is probably assisted in precipitation by a hypothyroid state and post hysterectomy status. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with your latest thyroid reports and consider starting some helpful medications to alleviate depression. You may consult me online fro any further queries and treatment.

What we as a society say and ask for from our children, can sometimes be drastically different from nature's plan. This is the age of the body's sexual growth and maturity. Along with the bodily changes, hormones cause changes in the brain too. Physical attraction, fantasies, sexual desire, etc are all natural and normal for teenagers. You cannot change how nature has designed your daughter. That said, you definitely need to guide her behavior. At this point in her life you cannot control her completely, nor can you leave her totally independent. My suggestion would be that you start accepting her for who she is. Accept that she likes someone or is attracted to someone. Then you guide her behavior respectfully, without being demanding and instructive. Confess your fears and anxieties. Ask her about her fears and apprehensions. Give suggestions based on your experience. It is ok to tell her what you expect, but gradually she is going to make more and more independent and self-centered choices. That's part of growing up. So be prepared. Teenagers take time to learn how to balance peer pressure and parental pressure. Don't push her to an extreme. If you treat your daughter with growing respect, you will be respected. If you become rigid and demanding, she will act stubbornly too.

Quit Smoking

MBBS, DPM (Psychiatry)
Psychiatrist, Thrissur



If you have tried to quit smoking and failed before, take comfort in the fact that most smokers fail several times before quitting successfully. Your past failures are not a lesson that you are unable to quit. Instead, view them as part of the normal journey toward becoming a nonsmoker.
The information below will ease your way and help insure that this is the last time you ever need to go through the quitting process. You can do it!
Please wait a few moments while this page loads. You may wish to print it out.

The most important step to take is the first step --admitting you have an addiction.
When asked why you smoke, you might have said, "I just like to smoke!" or "It's my choice to smoke."
The tobacco companies have promoted the idea that smoking is a matter of personal choice. As I see it, there really isn't as much choice as they have suggested to their customers.
Ask yourself, and be totally honest: Am I addicted to tobacco? Am I truly making a freely made choice when I smoke?
You might consider that you need to have a cigarette. Studies have shown that nicotine addiction is as hard to break as heroin or cocaine addiction.
In Nicotine Anonymous' 12 Step program, which sprang from the venerable Alcoholics Anonymous program, the first step is admitting to yourself, "I'm powerless over tobacco." Making this admission may seem trivial to you, but for many it is a very significant part of completing the journey to becoming a non-smoker.
By telling smokers that smoking is a personal choice, the tobacco industry has helped to keep its customers in denial about the true extent of their addiction. If smoking is a choice, then what's the rush to quit? The tobacco companies have used this spin to help keep millions of customers buying their deadly products.
Admitting that you're smoking more out of addiction than choice will help motivate you to go on to the next steps -- taking control of yourself and becoming a nonsmoker.
This admission will further serve you by helping you stay smoke free later. In the months and years after you quit, when temptations to smoke occasionally overpower you -- and they will -- remind yourself, "I have an addiction and I'm powerless over tobacco." Saying this to yourself in overwhelmed moments of desire will help give you the strength to say no to "just one" cigarette.
If you can make it for just five minutes without giving in, the urge to smoke be controllable or disappear. In this way, you'll be able to stay smokefree for life.
For me there were two very distinct and EQUALLY IMPORTANT phases to quitting:
Phase One — Quitting with helpPhase Two — Staying smokefree and not relapsing
Phase One:Quitting with help
When quitting, people who are the most successful at living life typically get help, and plenty of it.
For example, they might read up on how to prevent illness, and go to the doctor when sick. In business, a businessperson will get a lawyer to write the contracts, a marketing firm to do the marketing, an ad agency to create the ads, an accountant to do the accounting – and so on. The fact is that people who are successful in life get help. Real men ask directions!
Sadly, eighty percent of smokers who quit do so without being in any program – and studies show that 95% of these self-reliant quitters fail, and go right back to smoking. It's the same rate of recidivism as with heroin. With a 95% chance of failure without a program, you may wish to consider getting some help this time around.
For those who have repeatedly failed at quitting in the past, it's comforting to learn that most smokers in fact fail several times before stopping successfully. Your past failures are not a lesson that you are unable to quit. Instead, they are part of the normal journey toward becoming a nonsmoker.
I certainly failed -- 11 times. Every time I failed, I lost a little more faith that I could really quit. So each time I quit, it got harder and harder to motivate myself to set a date. I had begun to feel it was hopeless.
My mission here is to restore your faith in yourself. You CAN quit. Even if you've failed several times in the past, understand that this is normal. You're not alone.
You need to get your resolve up, and try again. YOU CAN DO IT!
Get help -- lots of it. Get into a good program, or better yet, a combination of more than one.
Call your local branch of the American Cancer Society, or the American Lung or Heart Associations. All have inexpensive and effective, mainstream programs.
Other top of the line, physician-endorsed methods: nicotine replacement and Zyban. The nicotine patch or gum are now available over-the-counter at any pharmacy. The anti-depressant Zyban and nicotine inhaler require a prescription.
The Schick-Shadel Treatment Centers offer aversion therapy -- self-administering a mild electric shock from an ordinary 9 volt battery as one smokes a cigarette. They claim a 95% initial success rate, and 50% after a year. I used this therapy successfully, and will come back to this later.
Buy a How to Quit Smoking Book, or a motivational cassette tape program in a bookstore, and listen to the tapes in your car. Every little bit helps!
In addition, visit our Quitlinks page, for to see the results of recent studies on which quit products work best.
Talk to a live human being free
Call 1-800-QUIT NOW for free support with a trained counselor, who will talk to you whether you are ready to quit or just thinking about it. This number will forward to your State's tobacco cessation program, which offers live phone support in your area. When you call, a friendly staff person will offer a choice of free services, including self-help materials, a referral list of other programs in your community, and one-one-counseling over the phone.
There is also the National Cancer Institute's Smoking Quitline, 1-877-44U-Quit, offering proactive counseling by trained personnel.
Try a free meeting
If joining a small group of other quitters appeals to you, then try a Nicotine Anonymous meeting. It's likely there's one near you where you live. It's a 12-step program based on AA; they're nonprofit and free. Ask directory assistance to get the number for a local Nicotine Anonymous chapter, or call the national line at (800) 642-0666. You can also check their website. (A for-profit company trademarked "Smokers' Anonymous" -- so you want the FREE program -- Nicotine Anonymous).
Don't count on any of these programs to make it a breeze. None of them will do that -- but they WILL reduce your distress by 15% to 50%, depending on how addicted you are psychologically, vs. physically.
I'm not promising it will be easy -- it won't. So get your resolve and willpower up, because you'll need it! And you CAN do it.
Don't ask, "Does this program work?" Rather, ask yourself, "Am I willing to DO the work?" You know how to work, don't you? I'm betting that you do.
I come from a wealthy background, and at one point it occurred to me that wealthy folks may have a much harder time quitting smoking, alcohol, or even dieting -- because they're used to getting whatever they want, whenever they want it. If you count yourself among this group, you might wish to consider an inpatient treatment center. You'd reside in a hospital for up to a week with a group of other people who are also quitting.
A Note About Tobacco Ads
Many teens, if asked, would say that tobacco ads have no influence over them. However, new studies tell us that advertising plays a greater role than even peer pressure in getting teens to smoke.
And one recent study shows that the three most heavily advertised brands are the same three brands most often smoked by teens -- Camels, Marlboros and Newport. It's no accident. Cigarette ads clearly influence our teens. Tobacco ads may not influence your conscious mind -- but they do influence the unconscious mind.
Your Unconscious Mind
What is the unconscious mind? In a famous study, the Russian scientist Pavlov rang a bell every time he fed his dog -- and eventually the dog would salivate just on hearing the bell -- even though there was no food there. The dog had made an unconscious association between the ringing and dinner, and began to drool!
Cigarette ads reach our unconscious minds. These ads create an unconscious association between the addiction of cigarettes and strong, positive images of attractive, healthy people, sports like tennis or mountain climbing, beautiful country scenes, cowboys gathered around a campfire or on horseback, masculinity and manhood, being feminine and womanhood, being a 'real person,' and so on. As of 2000, the tobacco industry has been spending over $5 billion annually to advertise its deadly products. That's a lot of bell ringing! And it's not lost on our kids.
The smoker's unconscious mind also makes repeated pleasant associations with the act of smoking -- watching the smoke slowly curling, putting a cigarette to the lips, languidly inhaling and exhaling, absently handling a cigarette -- all these are very much a part of the psychological addiction to tobacco. Quitters often feel as though they are losing a best friend.

For most addicted smokers, the addition is about half mental, half physical. Studies show that the ratio varies with each individual. The physical portion of the addiction is to nicotine. As to the mental or psychological aspect, a smoker's conscious mind says, 'I will stop smoking -- no problem.' But the unconscious mind has been conditioned for years that cigarettes give pleasure, and that's all it can focus on. The unconscious mind says, 'Gimmie a cigarette -- now!' It only recognizes what feels good. It demands a cigarette, without regard to right or wrong, and ignores the conscious mind's intentions. Aversion therapy is one way to help counteract this.

During the process of quitting, the new habit of being a nonsmoker forms. The ex-smoker's unconscious mind gradually gets used to being a nonsmoker, as the urges to smoke slowly fade away.
The Boilerplate Points

Do your best to follow as many of these as you can. The points below are advocated by most of today's credible quit-smoking products and programs. They are widely accepted as an essential and necessary part of quitting successfully. Just using the patch or Zyban without following the points below will hinder your chances to quit for good this time.

DEEP BREATHING PERHAPS THE SINGLE MOST POWERFUL AND IMPORTANT TECHNIQUE Every time you want a cigarette, do the following. Do it three times. Inhale the deepest lung-full of air you can, and then, very slowly, exhale. Purse your lips so that the air must come out slowly.As you exhale, close your eyes, and let your chin gradually sink over onto your chest. Visualize all the tension leaving your body, slowly draining out of your fingers and toes, just flowing on out. This is a variation of an ancient yoga technique from India, and is VERY centering and relaxing. If you practice this, you'll be able to use it for any future stressful situation you find yourself in. And it will be your greatest weapon during the strong cravings sure to assault you over the first few days. This deep breathing technique will be a vital help to you. Reread this point now, and as you do, try it for the first time. Inhale and exhale three times. See for yourself!

The first few days, drink LOTS of water and fluids to help flush out the nicotine and other poisons from your body.
Remember that the urge to smoke only lasts a few minutes, and will then pass. The urges gradually become farther and farther apart as the days go by.
Do your very best to stay away from alcohol, sugar and coffee the first week or longer, as these tend to stimulate the desire for a cigarette. Avoid fatty foods, as your metabolism will slow down a bit without the nicotine, and you may gain weight even if you eat the same amount as before quitting. So discipline about diet is extra important now. No one ever said acquiring new habits would be easy!
Nibble on low calorie foods like celery, apples and carrots. Chew gum or suck on cinnamon sticks.
Stretch out your meals; eat slowly and wait a bit between bites.
After dinner, instead of a cigarette, treat yourself to a cup of mint tea or a peppermint candy.

In one study, about 25% of quitters found that an oral substitute was invaluable. Another 25% didn't like the idea at all -- they wanted a clean break with cigarettes. The rest weren't certain. Personally, I found a cigarette substitute to be a tremendous help. The nicotine inhaler (by prescription) is one way to go: it's a shortened plastic cigarette, with a replaceable nicotine capsule inside.

A simpler way to go is bottled cinnamon sticks, available at any supermarket. I used these every time I quit, and they really helped me. I would chew on them, inhale air through them, and handle them like cigarettes. After a while, they would get pretty chewed up on one end -- but I'd laugh, reverse them and chew on the other end. Others may prefer to start a fresh stick. Once someone asked me, "Excuse me, but is that an exploded firecracker in your mouth?" I replied that I was quitting smoking – and they smiled and became supportive. Luckily, I never needed the cinnamon sticks after the first three days of being a nonsmoker.
Go to a gym, sit in the steam, exercise. Change your normal routine – take time to walk or even jog around the block or in a local park.
Look in the yellow pages under Yoga, and take a class – they're GREAT! Get a one hour massage, take a long bath -- pamper yourself.
Ask for support from coworkers, friends and family members. Ask for their tolerance. Let them know you're quitting, and that you might be edgy or grumpy for a few days. If you don't ask for support, you certainly won't get any. If you do, you'll be surprised how much it can help. Take a chance -- try it and see!
Ask friends and family members not to smoke in your presence. Don't be afraid to ask. This is more important than you may realize.
On your quit day, hide all ashtrays and destroy all your cigarettes, preferably with water, so no part of them is smokeable.
To talk to a live human being, call the National Cancer Institute's free Smoking Quitline, 1-877-44U-Quit. Proactive counseling services by trained personnel will be provided in sessions both before and after quitting smoking.

At Nicotine Anonymous meetings, you'll find warm bodies, which can be more comforting than a computer screen. If this appeals to you more, pick up your telephone and ask directory assistance for the phone number of your local chapter. These are based on the classic 12-steps, borrowed from AA. The meetings are free and run entirely by volunteers. If there are no meetings in your city, try calling (800) 642-0666, or check the website. There you can also find out how to start your own meeting. That's how it spread all over the U.S. Support groups like Nicotine Anonymous might initially seem unnecessary -- but they provide a GREAT outlet to vent verbally. This could help spare your family and friends much grumpiness. It's truly therapeutic to see how other quitters are doing in their own struggles to stop.

Write down ten good things about being a nonsmoker -- and then write out ten bad things about smoking. Do it. It really helps.
Don't pretend smoking wasn't enjoyable – it was. This is like losing a good friend – and it's okay to grieve the loss. Feel that grief, don't worry, it's okay. Feel, and you heal. Stay with it -- you can do it!
Several times a day, quietly repeat to yourself the affirmation, "I am a nonsmoker." Many quitters see themselves as smokers who are just not smoking for the moment. They have a self-image as smokers who still want a cigarette. Silently repeating the affirmation "I am a nonsmoker" will help you change your view of yourself, and, even if it may seem silly to you, this is actually useful. Use it!
Here is perhaps the most valuable information among these points. In Phase 2, the period which begins a few weeks after quitting, the urges to smoke will subside considerably. However, it's vital to understand that from time to time, you will still be suddenly overwhelmed with a desire for "just one cigarette." This will happen unexpectedly, during moments of stress, whether negative stress or positive (at a party, or on vacation). If you are unprepared to resist, succumbing to that "one cigarette" will lead you directly back to smoking. Remember the following secret: in these surprise attacks during Phase 2 -- and they will definitely come -- do your deep breathing, and hold on for five minutes, and the urge will pass.
In conclusion, get the info and support you need to make the stopping process a little easier. DO NOT try to go it alone. Get help, and plenty of it.

Go cold turkey, or gradually cut down?
This is a personal choice. Do whichever you think will work best for you. Smokenders is a gradual quit program. But I wasn't one of those who could quit by slowly cutting down – although that works best for some. I always went cold turkey.
I'd always quit on a Monday -- a regular workday, when work would occupy my thoughts. My usual routine tasks were familiar and helped get me through the first few difficult days, which were always the most difficult part for me.
Once I tried quitting during a vacation. I found there was little to do, except to obsess all day long over having a smoke. I failed that time. The positive stress of being on vacation actually added to my stress in quitting. More about positive stress in the crucially important section which now follows. Do read on!
Phase TwoStaying smokefree and not relapsing
Here is the most valuable secret I can share with you, and probably the most important information on this page.
After the urges to smoke have become more and more infrequent, overwhelming surprise attacks are sure to come, a few weeks and months into your new smokefree life.
When these nearly out-of-control urges came (and they always engulfed me in unexpected moments), I learned that if I did my deep breathing (see above), and if I could just HOLD ON for 5 minutes -- the overpowering urge to smoke would completely pass.
That is by far the single most important thing I learned -- the hard way -- about how to quit successfully.
Because I didn't know this, I failed 11 times. I finally stopped for good on my 12th try, in Spring 1985. It's the key to what has empowered me to stay smokefree for the past dozen years or so.
So know that out-of-control, very nearly irresistible urges to have "just one" are going to take you by surprise, like a sudden gale that seems to come from nowhere. This will happen one or more times in the coming months.
Every time it does, do your deep breathing (see above), hold on for 5 minutes -- you can do it -- and the urge will completely pass.
I'm convinced that this is the single most important secret to quitting for life.

A NOTE TO NONSMOKERS If you live with a smoker, or are close friends with one: don't be a NAG about their smoking habit! (You can make noise about their smoking in the house or near you, because their second hand smoke hurts you – but don't nag them to quit. There's a BIG difference!)
Just three times a year you can ask your loved one – briefly – VERY briefly – to please quit smoking -- in VERY loving and warm tones. (Try surrounding your request with HONEST complements, keep it BRIEF, and they might be more open to hearing you.
But if you speak up more than three times per YEAR, then you're a yukky, obnoxious NAG. Ick! And your beloved smoker will be so ANGRY with you that they'll keep smoking just to spite you. You'll be defeating your very purpose.
I ask nonsmokers to honor their smoking loved ones, and treat them like adults.
And if your loved ones are nagging you, don't fall into the old trap of hurting yourself by continuing to smoke out of your anger toward them. Instead, let them know how you feel.
Sometimes, life is painful. It's supposed to be that way. All of us are faced with grief, loss and struggle. And it's by our struggles that we define and strengthen our character.
In my live talks and video for youth, I revive the ancient practice of initiation. As I initiate them into life, I let teens know that sometimes life will be painful.
"And when those moments come, you need to take the ADULT path," I tell the students, "and stay with the difficulty -- and not go lighting a cigarette, raiding the icebox, taking drugs, blasting music or switching on the TV -- or, going to work for too many long hours. All these are just ways of avoiding painful feelings and numbing them out."
If you stay with your pain, you'll begin to see what's causing it. And when you're ready, you can take a step to solve the problem.

Doctor, I'm a 24 year old girl. I have a slight loss of memory when it come to work that I keep forgetting about certain works I did the day before or the payments I made and received. This is creating a little problem at work. And I do keep over thinking about my future as I want a career and I have been getting proposals for marriage, when i'm not at all ready for it. I wish to work and make some money. I keep avoiding all the family get together and meetings with relatives as they keep asking me about my exams (I'm a CA student. I wanted to be a designer in the first place, but was ok with mothers choice. Even I agreed to it. But I regret it very badly now. I asked several times to switch my career choice and all I kept getting as reply was "try. Try" I am literally tired now. I could not pass the levels in CA and now I stand with a UG degree and 3 years experience. Best part is articleship is not counted as experience when you apply for jobs. I still tried and my applications are getting rejected. I sleep a lot. I keep thinking a lot. And Im worried about my future. Above these worries to have a proper career, my parents want me to get married. I do not want to marry without my own job, and live the rest of my life with someones money. I want my own income. Doctor, I do not know if these are nonsense or if i'm being immature, but I do face a lot of mental stress and my friends say that I have changed and become more silent, when I used to be a very lively person. I want support from my parents side. All I want is that. If I should be able to do something, then I need only them to be strong and have faith in me and god. I tried convincing them, but every next time they come up with another proposal that too of 31 and 32 years old,(they think age defines maturity, but I do not believe when they them self is an example. as I have not mentioned anything about my choices. Please guide me if i'm wrong with my views regarding life and career. Thank you Doctor.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are perfectly correct about your career and goals and even in the matter of your marriage. Your problem is saturation. Your attitude is the reason behind the saturation. Your parents are asking you to try and try again. You are disappointed because you feel ca is not for you. How can you say so? at the age of 4, when you started going to school, was maths you desired. English or hindi you liked? did you like or desire science? still you learned. How and why? simply because you understood its requirement and did not possess negative attitude as you possess now. Remember the proverb" nothing is impossible" if you have the right sense and positive attitude. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

‘If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms – like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite – when you stop.’ One of the significant reactions of withdrawal is anxiety. Some people react to anxiety by escalating anger over it, which is what I think you are doing. Two years ago you were still in your late teens and your nerves were still forming and the damage to them can be quite considerable, especially at that time. Now that you have stopped you must seek professional help from an addiction counselor and work out the reasons behind the addiction in the first place. There may be a lot of precipitating factors that predisposed you to the substance. A lot of study of your family history, your personal development from prenatal days and your upbringing will be very useful to deal with in treatment. You must start a good exercise regimen for your physical recovery on a daily basis. There are four issues which you need to work on with your counselor: the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic issue, and the script issue. You should attend NA meetings regularly and change a lot of lifestyle habits, friends, social habits, and learn healthy ways to be a happy person without the use of substances. Your spiritual soundness is also an area of work to focus on. In the NA group you will be able to work on the 12-step program, which is very exhaustive and very useful to your recovery. Mere abstinence from the substance is not enough to resolve the addiction problem. Please go for a complete medical check up in relation to your addiction to identify any other damage that has to be attended to.

Are you suggesting that at this age you are not working and still depending on the family to support you? since you are not clear, I have to speculate. If this is not true, then don? t bother about your family since you are earning. Also money is important in life but it is not the be-all-and-end-all of everything. In fact the more money you have, the more the problems. Learn to detach from money because it can incite greed. You must learn to live with what you have. Many people get into so many problems because they want more things, which unfortunately money can get. But you cannot go on acquiring things for immediate gratification. You must learn discipline: the number one tool for incorporating discipline is the ability to delay gratification. In other words you must be patient, accept some pain and wait for the right time to get things. The greed for money can lead to worshiping it to make it your god.

Maybe. Get your full workup. Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal (hormonal) problems, metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia. Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland excision. It's a safe and near scarless procedure. Consult a plastic surgeon for that.

Dear, from the description, it seems that you have anxiety disorder and it could be social anxiety disorder. You were worried when you gave blood and you carried the whole worry with you for some period instead of forgetting it. Later it manifested as anxiety. Anxiety can be treated with the help of awareness, psychotherapy, life style changes and exercise. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Know who you are, Be who you are! In this way you won't be envious to compare self with others. The crackers of keeping mind and heart busy are much better than outdoor crackers, so so when you keep yourself engaged in service then automatically the crackers won't disturb you.

Hi Sonali, at your age there should not be any memory problems per se. I think you need more focussed attention to give in your study, revise the matter in timely manner, recollect the fact as much as u can. I hope you can remember more. If not then please check your Thyroid status and routine blood. You can consult a neuropsychiatrist if you want.

Dear lybrate-user, smoking is injurious to health. Even when you take one cigarette per day, it is capable of cancer. Quitting is not that easy. Though deaddiction therapy is useful, I would suggest you to just quit it in one go on a fine day. You need to sustain it with the help of will power. Motivation therapy and mind power therapy should help you. Please consult a psychologist

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hello, welcome to lybrate as you said that you have been ocd since last 7 years, and now you have developed sleeplessness. Before prescribing you any medication, it is improtant to know few details about your illness such as type of ocd, whether on medications currently for ocd, any other symptom other than ocd. Ocd have comorbid psychological issues as well such as depression, bipolar, psychosis, anxiety issues as well. These co-morbidities if present can lead to symptom exaggeration as well development of new symptoms. Hence to start any medication, a detailed assessment is required first. If you feel like, than you can have a private conversation with me, where we can have a detailed discussion about your illness, symptoms, stressors, and treatment options available. You can consult me.
