How can I stop nexito plus which I have been taking for anxiety medication. My Brain MRI and EEG have returned normal. Does that mean no brain disorders are there .I have been asked to go for retribution therapy and what would be the therapy about. Could some one guide me on this. Does this medicine needs to be taken life long or can it be stopped.

Dear lybrate-user, Nexito plus is an antidepressant and Anti Anxiety Medication. It takes time to start working -minimum of 1 month- and continues to help thereafter. Depression is a disorder of the "mind" while EEG and MRI try to rule out an organic Brain Disorder. Think of it Software (mind) and hardware (brain) of a computer. Both need to be functioning optimally to do the job. Stopping the Medication Please note that you must not stop this medication abruptly and without a psychiatrist's supervision. It is likely to lead to SSRI withdrawal syndrome which can be serious. Usually these medications need to be taken for a long time as relapse is common. A trial of stopping it maybe done after the patient remains totally symptom free for 6-8 months. BUT pls be WARNED that it must be done after consulting a psychiatrist. We can setup an appointment to work on hpur issues and prescribe further if you like, or please see a local psychiatrist.

11 Symptoms Of Manic Depressive Disorder!

MBBS, MD - Neuropsychiatry
Psychiatrist, Varanasi
11 Symptoms Of Manic Depressive Disorder!

Manic depression, also known as bipolar disorder in recent days, is a major mood disorder characterized by hypomanic or manic episodes (deviation from one's usual mood along with abnormally high energy levels). Mania involves sleeplessness, along with psychosis, hallucinations, rage, grandiose delusions or paranoia. Mania or hypomania isn’t usually harmful to the patient and they might exhibit increased capacity for work and creativity. Depressive episodes however, can be debilitating and often life threatening as the person becomes self-destructive and suicidal in many instances. 

The extent of mood swings can vary from extreme to very mild. They can occur progressively or suddenly and might last for few days to weeks. Patients affected by bipolar disorder may experience disturbances in thinking apart from depressive or manic episodes. Distortions of perception and impaired social functioning are also not uncommon. The cause of bipolar disorder is not fully understood like most mental health conditions and is often thought to be hereditary.

The extent of the seriousness of the bipolar symptoms varies from person to person. In some people, the disorder is not full blown and they don’t exhibit all the symptoms. Others who aren’t that lucky might have to be hospitalized multiple times in their lives as the symptoms creep into their work and personal life and make living a normal life a tough challenge. 

Psychotic symptoms such as disorganized thinking, hallucinations and delusions might make a person do things that demand the urgency of hospitalization to keep them safe from their suicidal impulses. These symptoms might need to be urgently addressed by a psychiatrist and with the help of medications, the person might be able to regain control of their lives.

The symptoms of bipolar disorder are many and can be mainly categorized into two (sometimes overlapping) categories of mania or hypomania and depression:

Manic symptoms include: 

  1. Grandiose delusions (delusion of grandeur) 
  2. Racing thoughts which are often disconnected
  3. Sense of euphoria or false elation
  4. Irritability without cause
  5. Hampered social functioning
  6. Increased sexual inclination and risky sexual behavior
  7. Hyperactivity
  8. Increase in talking volume or speed
  9. Impaired judgment
  10. Reduced sleep requirements owing to extra energy levels
  11. Increased productivity and creativity

Depressive symptoms include:

  1. Abnormal eating patterns like over or under-eating to the extent of severe medical complications accompanied by drastic changes in weight
  2. Difficulty in concentration, making decisions and remembering
  3. Lack of energy or fatigue 
  4. Contemplating about death for prolonged periods of time and suicidal behavior
  5. Oversleeping, insomnia or early awakening
  6. Persistent pessimism 
  7. Irritability and restlessness
  8. Feeling of hopeless and negative attitude

Mood stabilizers, such as lithium are commonly employed to treat bipolar disorder. Anticonvulsants, benzodiazepines and anti psychotics can also be used in the treatment. Along with medications, support from family and friends is of the utmost importance as they need to help provide all the support required in making the person functional and healthy. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user Thank you for writing to us. Every marriage goes through a phase where things are not so great between the couples and where things are not so exciting as they were before. Think about the qualities that you like in your husband and why you married him. It would help if you are able to talk to your husband about how you feel in a gentle way. You both can come up with things to do together and that you both find interesting. You can also consider seeing a marriage counselor if all this doesn't work. Hope this helps. If you want you can contact me via Lybrate.

6 Symptoms Of Gender Identity Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
6 Symptoms Of Gender Identity Disorder

Born as a male but feel like a female OR born as a female but feel like a male. Some persons are unable to feel comfortable in the physical gender that they are born in; their mind, brain, feeling and thoughts are all of the opposite sex. This uncomfortableness in their mind about their physical gender is termed as Gender Identity Disorder.

What's the cause?

We do not know the exact cause of this disorder, but it is hypothesized that developmental changes in the brain and the body do not sync, and the brain/mind is left with a different gender than the body. This is mostly an unidentifiable and unpredictable change.

What are the symptoms?

1. Children might express a desire to dress up as the opposite sex.
2. They might express replusion at one's own sex organs/genitals.
3. As adolescence begins, they do not develop feelings of attraction towards members of the opposite sex. Some complain of revulsion about their pubertal changes.
4. Males want to pee while sitting down, while females want to do it standing up.
5. Their behavior is often more like that of the opposite sex, e.g. boys might display feminine gestures, while girls might indulge in risk taking and reckless behavior.
6. As they become adult, a realisation that they are stuck in a body that they do not like causes depression and anxiety.

Diagnosis:

A diagnosis of Gender Identity Disorder (GID) is made based on a detailed assessment by a Psychiatrist, who is specially trained in this assessment. WPATH standards mandate that this is an ongoing assessment, and involves facilitating the process of Hormonal Treatment and eventual Sex Reassignment Surgery. The whole process can take 2-3 years.

Treatment:

For those who have severe GID, eventual sex reassignment surgery is the treatment and outcome. However, support of family, friends and a Good Psychiatrist can enable a smooth transition. Psychiatrists will often use antidepressants and anxiolytics to make it easier for the person to cope with societal and family pressures. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Can one stop taking 12.5 mg atenolol if taken for anxiety. Does stopping it suddenly cause any side effects.

Can one stop taking 12.5 mg atenolol if taken for anxiety. Does stopping it suddenly cause any side effects.
Atenolol is not a drug for Anxiety. Its Propranolol that is useful for the physical components of anxiety reponses (trembling, quivering of voice etc). Ability to act on Beta 2 receptors gives it the above utility, while atenolol is only active on B1 receptiors. Moreover, Atenolol does not cross blood brain barrier so I do not see the merit of it here. As for Sudden Withdrawal of Medication- Yes, typically B Blockers like Atenolol etc are not to be stopped abruptly. They can lead to increased heart rate, palpitations etc due to the upregulated B receptors. That said, Atenolol at 12. 5 mg may be stopped abruptly as it is a very low dose. Ofcourse, cannot comment on how the condition for which it may have been prescribed and its worsening but otherwise maybe safely stopped. Suggest see your doctor, or setup an appointment with me for me to better be able to guide you.
