Grief is the emotional feelings that arise after loss of loved person. It is usual to feel numb and withdrawn with somatic distress for few months but if these feelings are persistent with mood changes then its a sign of clinical depression. Counseling sessions with qualified expert can help you to get over these thoughts for time being talk to someone about the feelings of loss of deceased.

Cocaine Detoxification

Medical Detoxification is a process that systematically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and stopping them can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to treat the immediate bodily effects of stopping drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.

While at the present time, no proven pharmacologic therapy for cocaine addiction exists, several kinds of medications have been used in the detoxification of cocaine. Withdrawal from chronic cocaine use produces anxiety, depression and intense cravings for the drug. Several types of medications address these issues in different ways.

Antidepressant drugs such as desipramine or a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine have been used to reduce cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Benzodiazepines, tranquilizers such as Diazepam, have been used to reverse anxiety induced by cocaine withdrawal. Amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson's Disease, may be an effective treatment for cocaine-dependent patients with severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms and may reduce cocaine craving. Bromocriptine, a drug that works on the brain's dopamine system, has been used to decrease the craving for cocaine during detoxification and to reduce mood disturbance.

Propanolol, a beta-blocker drug used to treat high blood pressure, may be useful for severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms, as it slows down the effects of adrenaline, thereby calming the body's "fight or flight" response to stressful situations. This type of drug has been used to treat general anxiety and anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. Propranolol's lessening of symptoms such as palpitations and sweating has helped reduce cocaine craving. Its use, however, is not risk free in patients who have taken cocaine and can be associated with decreased blood flow to the heart and other changes that predispose patients to arrhythmia and a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Delayed toxic effects are possible. Any use of beta-blockers in this setting requires careful monitoring and caution

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You cannot accept his present behavior. This happens just because you are in love with him. You got cheated and your mind could not accept the cheating. Accepting is the key. Inability to accept and refusal to accept are two different attitudes. You know there is no reversal to this situation. You have to take revenge. Forget him, marry another person, live well and show your boy friend that you are capable and can live without him. You can do it. Take care.

I am 19 years old boy. I am an engineering student. I think I have memory loss and poor thinking capacity. What will I do to increase my memory power. And suggest me the food habits too.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
First and foremost, there is nothing as memory loss that's happening to you- its just that you are studying things at a more advanced level now and you will have to review your study skills and techniques. You need to understand what you study - do not try to cram. Writing and practicising is very important. Do not get swayed by people's claims that you can score even without studying in college- you have to be regular in your class attendance and self study for better understanding and retention. Check some of your daily habits- wake up in time for the class, have a healthy breakfast every morning - so that you have the energy for concentration in class. Have lots of water and natural fluids -avoid aerated drinks. Have fresh fruits and salads as much as possible - they give you instant energy, are easily digestable and keep you alert. Maintain a notebook where you write about what you did and what you wish to do n the entire day. Have a good sleep for 6-8 hours for relaxation and better focus, alertness and concentration.

I also be in the sun for an average 5 hours a day and some days to 10 hours. What should I do ?Please tell.

Homeopath, Sagar
Dear falling of 40-50 hair shafts per day is normal if it is exceeding then treatment is required. Take nourishing diet like milk, fruits, salad etc. Some moderate exercise is very helpful for improving blood circulation, avoid mental stress wear a suitable cap while going out in the sun as long exposure to sun is also responsible for premature graying of hairs. Homoeopathic treatment gives very good response in hair related problems you can opt for my hair fall & dandruff package which is available on lybrate.

Hi, dark circles might persist due to hereditary also. If any of your parents have it then you are bound to get them. Drink lots of water as dehydration also causes dark circles. If you have tried everything to get rid of them then start using concealer to hide them if you are getting frustrated. Otherwise accept them and put your energy in some positive activities.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. From the given symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from depression and anxiety neurosis. Depression and general anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Dear user. Beating children of any age should have bad consequences emotionally in their mind and in their future life. Children at any age should be treated as emotional beings and they be treated with care. Punishment should be used as an extreme measure. Take care.

Sex issue. I am not able to penetrate for more than a min. I some daily n even I consume alcohol. I am 24 years old. My girlfriend is not happy with our sex life.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, the problem with alcohol is it gives too much desire and takes away the performance. If you are consuming daily, probably you are dependent on alcohol. You need to stop alcohol with the help of doctor and medicines. Your sex life will improve after that. Don't say that your friends are having sex after alcohol. Each one has different way of reacting to alcohol. This is your way. Your sex life will improve once you get married to your girl friend. Lot of things, like less time, urgency, guilt of making her pregnant, inferiority complex etc may be playing a role. All of them will improve once you get married. Don't worry - you are able to get erection, you are able to penetrate - these things show you are normal.

My husband always in aggressive mood always possessive and don't lyk my praises and always says to me that I have a depression problem. Please tell me what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your husband was a doctor, I would have said your need some treatment. But if he is trying to scare you and blame your behavior by throwing diagnoses around, it must not be allowed to work. If you are indeed doubtful, then you can meet with a counselor to know, if his accusations are true. But if he harasses you like this then it is possible that you could get depressed because of it. Now if you let him do that, then that will be an unfortunate neglect on your part. You must stand up for yourself and be counted. You should both go for marital counseling and sort out your differences and find out what is his insecurity. Are you making him insecure or is he suffering from this problem apart from you? if it is the former then you need to work on that. If it is the latter, then he has much to work on. If he is not willing to come for therapy, you go at least and learn how to cope and deal with this situation. Sometimes when he sees you working on your issues he may feel encouraged to come and then you will have the best situation for marital counseling. But do not be passive and take all this nonsense. This can lead to a grossly mismanaged relationship in the long run because you failed to take prompt action.

I am 57 years old, asthmatic, diabetic with psychiatric problems. I am taking ayurvedic treatment for asthma and Theo-asthalin 1-0-1 as a backup. I also use Asthalin inhaler and Budecort inhaler regularly and hence the attacks are under control. For a mild attack I use Albutamol tabs 1-1-1 for three days and I get relief. If there is an acute attack, inhalers do not work. Then I use a nebulizer with Asthalin and Budecort respules and get good relief. If there is an infection, like having fever, then only I rush to a doctor, who will put me on an anti-biotic (azithromycin 500 mg 1-0-1 for 5 days), bronchodilator syrup, a de-constant and paracetamol for fever. At the present moment, I am free from attacks even though the weather in Bangalore is un-predictable. Due to the history of 57 years of asthma, my lungs are not functioning to its full capacity and hence I feel doing breathing exercises a bit tiresome, even though I am on it. During an asthmatic attack, I usually sweat, probably due to the fact that enough oxygen is not supplied to my body. Once, the attacks are controlled, sweating disappears and I will be able to do my day to day duties without any problem. But this malady has certainly made me handicapped and my moments and activities are restricted. Ayurvedic medicines are of great help to me. Coming to my psychiatric problem - I am having Depression, Anxiety and Schizophrenia. For depression cum anxiety I am taking Venlor XR 150 mg 1-0-0, Mirtaz 15 mg 0-0-1 and Clonazepam 0.25 mg 1-0-1. The symptoms are under control. For Schizophrenia I am taking Sizodon plus 0-0-1 and Sizopin 0-0-1. The symptoms are under control. There is a certain relationship between my asthma and my psychiatric illness. I get asthmatic attacks usually when I am disturbed and depressed. This is due to the fact that I lost my mother at an young age and was brought up by my grand father whose death in 1986 meant a trigger for asthma. Once, I took psychiatric treatment in 1987, the attacks became less frequent. Is my asthma psycho-somatic in nature? Please advice. Do the above mentioned anti-psychotic drugs trigger an attack and which of them are habit forming? Please confirm.

Well, thanks for seeking help and I appreciate the way you detailed your issues out. It seems, your asthma is controlled with conventional medicines. Your occasional depression/ anxiety attacks, despite the symptoms being majorly in control, could be triggering your asthma attacks. I do empathize with your irreparable losses. Life does present us with varied challenges which sometimes are unpleasant to deal with. We, however, need to take every challenge that we are faced with, positively and think it as being an opportunity life has bestowed upon us mostly to evolve us and bring the best out of us. You certainly have dealt with this challenge and moved forward in life already. I would hereby advise you to think positive, visualize pleasant stuff, de-stress regularly and stay relaxed. This practice will not only help avert and reduce the incidences of future asthma attacks but also help you be in self control while an attack has precipitated. Also, learning well & practicing yogasanas like'bhujangasana'savasana' and pranayams like'kapalbhati'anulom-viloma'bhramari' etc all on a daily basis are highly beneficial in this condition unless advised otherwise by your consulting doc. Simultaneously, make sure your diet/ nutrition, lifestyle including bowel habits etc all are streamlined. Its advisable to eat in moderation and less than your full capacity than eating to your full. Try avoiding tea, coffee, spices, chillies, pickles, extremely hot & cold/ chilled foods generally. Do consume citrus fruits/ vegetables rich in vitamin c as they help strengthen your immunity. Warm saline gargling, at least once daily, shall help protect you from throat related afflictions that often trigger asthma in certain people. Mostly, fresh air, dry climate, regular exercise go a long way in helping avert precipitation of an attack. Daily consumption of ginger tea helps a lot, unless you are allergic to it. Inhaling the scent of honey during an asthma attack helps breathe easier too. Having said the above-mentioned, you must continue with your allopathic medications as already advised by your doc and attempt the natural remedies as suggested by me above, only as an adjunct or complement to the ongoing conventional treatment. Hope the above-mentioned helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely, Dr. Pritam (nd) bbsr.

Dear lybrate-user, considering your wife's age and symptom of burning sensation, I would advise her to do few blood check ups like fasting sugar, vit b12 and folate level, serum calcium level, d3 and thyroid profile. After seeing the reports appropriate supplements have to be added. Till then let her continue all the tablets as prescribed so that she continues to cook and keep the house.

You have premature ejaculation. This may happen due to various reasons but at your age this is mostly due to psychological stress and anticipatory anxiety. Since you have been having this problem for more than a year now, you might need treatment with a short course of medications. You also will have to learn and practice certain exercises which help in delaying ejaculation during sex.
