I am a Veterinary Doctor. To reduce the stress, a physician prescribed me alprazolam 0.5 mg SR BID. I am taking it since last 10 years. Now the dose is increased to 1 mg after noon and 3 mg in night. I am dependent on it as it is a benzodiazepine. How to get rid off this? I tried to with draw it, but failed. What is the best way to come out of it? It is not easy to get also, since it is a schedule drug? Tapering dose was also tried. But severe insomnia and fatigue, vomiting, convulsions, constipation followed. Please help.

It is called drug dependent. In compulsory condition only. We go medicine after condition is normal then we stopped. But you are not do that. Drug dosage may increased day by day. It has so many side effects. So better to stop the medicine slowly. Do hard work, do physical exercises, read you well, watch t v, more time before internet. Then your eyes need rest. Then automatically sleep comes. Do not go bed with sleep intention go to bed when you get sleep tendency. You need psychotherapy, relaxation therapy and behaviour therapy better to consult a very good psychologist in bangalore. In bangalore so many experts are there. Please consult them. Please follow their suggestions. Best wishes.

Mind and memory power cannot be increased by any medicines. The so called medicines available at market are fake. Farji dawa math khaayiye. Paisa jayega. Bus. Padaai mein dil lagaana chaahiye, dimaag nahi. Apne padaayi ko apna zindagi samajiye. Take care.

Hi Sir, I am suffering from alcohol habit Every day evening I don't want but I am not control so please suggest me to.

Hi Sir, I am suffering from alcohol habit
Every day evening I don't want but I am not control so please suggest me to.
It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need in the evening. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

This may not be a major disease but it surely affects quality of life. The best way to mitigate it is homeopathic treatment. But before going for it you must understand homeopathic system needs detailed case so advise is not to go for over the counter prescription or short cuts. Opt for detailed case study.

Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.
