Do all antidripesents have side effects? Does all are bad for health, I have depression, do I take these or not, please help.

Antidepressants are used for treatment of depression. Just like any other medications every antidepressant has some documented side effects which may not occur in every person. Antidepressants are devised to improve depression and for well being of a person and hence are used according to the risk benefit ratio. For sure, depression has much worse and dreadful side effects on human health than antidepressants alone. Hence it would be inappropriate to call them good or bad. So, if you have depression you should go ahead and treat it. Choice of antidepressants should be made according to your clinical profile and should be taken under strict supervision of the treating psychiatrist.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy

Keep listening to sanskrit shlokas and reciting them. Many times stammering is a result of low self confidence. You need to be aware of your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. You may take an appointment with a counsellor.

What have to do to increase the memory power of a man who had suffered a accident.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If his memory has been affected by the accident there is very little you can do because there may have been some organic damage. However, if he does extensive physiotherapy along with neurological exercises he could probably recover some of it.

How to Treat Depersonalization Disorder?

Psychiatrist, Navi Mumbai
How to Treat Depersonalization Disorder?

A person suffering from depersonalization disorder often feels detached from their thoughts and is often faced with a steange feeling that you are being separated from your emotions and your body. Feeling disconnected from his or her surrounding environment is one of the main symptoms of depersonalization disorder. An affected person might feel like an alien, living in a world of fantasy and fear of getting crazy or depressed, anxious and panicky. A patient with depersonalization disorder does not lose his contact with reality and realizes that his perceptions are unreal. This health condition is a form of dissociative disorder, where the brain gets affected.

Treatment: People seeking treatment for depersonalization disorder are primarily concerned with the associated symptoms such as anxiety and disorder. Treatment is required when the disorder is recurring or long lasting, and when the symptoms cause severe distress. The aim of the treatment is to eliminate all causes of stress when the symptoms show up. The method of treatment depends on the nature of the triggers and on the severity of the symptoms. Here is a list of the most effective treatment methods:

  1. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is an effective treatment procedure for depersonalization disorder. Psychological techniques are used to help an affected person recognize his feelings and for communicating his thoughts to a therapist. Thoughts which may lead to depersonalization experience are expressed by a person in this process. Cognitive therapy is utilized for changing dysfunction thought patterns in an affected person.
  2. Medication: There are no medicines for the general treatment of depersonalization disorder. Several medicines are used to treat the symptoms. In patients who experience depression and severe anxiety, antidepressant and antianxiety medicines may be prescribed. Antipsychotic medicines are also used to cure disordered thinking and improper perception of reality.
  3. Family therapy: Family therapy educates the affected person's family about the disorder, its causes and the family members learn how to recognize the symptoms.
  4. Creative therapy: Creative therapies, such as art therapy or music therapy, enable a patient to recognize and express his feelings better in a creative and safe way.
  5. Clinical hypnosis: This process involves intense relaxation, concentration and focus of attention in order to achieve an altered state of consciousness. This makes a patient more aware, and he can explore his thoughts and feelings, which have been absent from his conscious mind.

Complete recovery from depersonalization disorder is possible for most of the patients. The symptoms go away by themselves after treatment. Treatment makes a person more effective in dealing with stress or trauma, which might act as triggers for further recurrence of this disorder. Treatment is necessary and avoiding treatment might cause severe complications later. It is recommended to consult a doctor for the best treatment measures.

Quitipin is an anti psychotic and not for stress, taking alternate days can lead to serious side effects and not recommended in any health guidelines, it is not over the counter drug to be taken as per your wish. Consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed correctly and take medicine as per his advise and attend review regularly. Your case reminds me of one of my patient who did the same with quitipin and landed in stroke, i.e. Paralysis of one side of body.

My father died of parkinsonism, also one cousin is having it. How sure is I may suffer from it?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Only about 10 percent of Parkinson’s cases have been linked to a genetic cause. Most cases of Parkinson’s are called idiopathic or sporadic, meaning the cause is unknown, and researchers believe onset is due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.If your father acquired PD after 40ies then probability chances for you acquiring this disease are even less.

I am an OCD patient. I am on treatment but I still get negative thoughts and these negative thoughts causes me anxiety. How to reduce my anxiety during that time naturally.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mohali
Dear , Anxiety is one of the core symptoms of OCD. Since your obsessions are still persisting, the best way to get rid of anxiety will be to get rid of the symptoms. In addition to anxiety, you can consider starting cognitive behaviour therapy which has a very good effect in reducing OCD symptoms. Talk to your psychiatrist regarding the same. In addition, exercise is one of the best natural ways of reducing anxiety. You can also start doing relaxation techniques in form of deep breathing and meditation. Hope that you recover soon. Best wishes.

Antidepressant course would be decided by your doctor regularly depending on the progress. Combining two forms of medicine is not healthy. The drug you are taking has gone through multiple trials in many parts of the world and is approved by us fda and other agencies for treatment of depression. When r going to combine this with an ayurveda medication, the impact of the drug-drug interactions and the ayurveda s individual potency and side effects have never been studied, it can lead to severe kidney, liver or heart damage so better be cautious combining 2 forms of different medicine.
