Hello. The prescription includes all major drugs used for OCD but whether it is apt cannot be said unless viewed long term. Drugs are given matching the patient's profile. Hence it is better to consult a psychiatrist for the same.

It depends you have to treat the primary cause. If your stress is primary then may be weight gain, hair fall is the result of that for which you should consult psychiatrist. If there is no weight gain. Hair fall and its the sole reason for stress you should consult endocrinologist. Eat well- lots of nuts and dry fruits, green leafy vegetables and raw fruits. Drink plenty of water. Start exercising daily. All the best. Consult for any query.

It seems that you are scared to talk to people. The desire is there but the fear is crippling you. You need to meet with a counselor to deal with this fear and learn how to express the feeling as well as to reach out. Are you afraid that you may not speak well, or that your ideas are not that good, or that people will judge you, or that they will find out about how poor you are intellectually, etc? these are unnecessary dialogues you have and they are not true at all. When people are in conversation, we are listening to information and how you present the same. You are very harsh on yourself and have decided, for some reason, that you are not good enough. You may have been reprimanded in childhood for speaking or your parents may have been too strict at home. These could intimidate you when you are to speak in front of people. All these matters must be taken up with the counselor. Start talking to people at home first, particularly children, and slowly grade up to older teens and then to adults, as you build confidence. If you prepare and rehearse the conversation you are likely to have, you will do very well when you actually do it. Now there is no guarantee that whatever you prepared is going to be the exact conversation but since you are prepared most of the conversation will go according to script and the rest will be easy to handle because they will be minor deviations from the main course. You could attend the toastmasters club, and go for conversational skills courses too. Good social practice will eventually see you through. Nothing will happen, if you are passive about this. For your information public speaking is the number one fear of all mankind. Yet, people speak and appear so confident: it is because they use the fear to advantage and prepare themselves well. So you are not alone.

As per your description of your situation, it shows that you have anxiety from traveling in train in night. This situation of yours may be because of that you associated some fear with traveling in night and it has become anxiety of traveling in night. Before planning for next journey, start one exercise at your home daily: when you go on bed for sleeping, before sleeping after closing eyes visualize whole situation in which you have fear, while you are lying on bed. In this process, you may have fear again but immediately stop your visualization, start deep breathing for approx five minutes and after deep breathing, start again visualization that situation, if you face fear again, go for deep breathing. Practice this whole process every day for at least ten minutes. I hope, you will get relief.

Then the diagnosis may not be depression, since the results with antidepressants are excellent, rarely we see resistant depression. Get a 2nd opinion from another psychiatrist, and get evaluated in detail.

Hos should I decrease my hemoglobin level. Now its level is 20. How should I decrease it at normal level. I stop smoking also.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for stopping smoking. When you smoke, your lungs need more oxygen to clean blood properly. So more red blood cells and hemoglobin. Now that you have stopped smoking, your lungs will start functioning well. There is no need for excess oxygen -> more red cells -> more hemoglobin. In due course, hemoglobin will come to normal level, if you continue to breathe well WITHOUT smoking. You can do breathing exercises to speed it up.

How can I get rid of stress, strain and pressure that had been repeatedly creating a problem for my mind.

How can I get rid of stress, strain and pressure that had been repeatedly creating a problem for my mind.
Dear Samboj, Welcome to lybrate. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

It is completely understandable that you had a big trauma losing both your family members in the same year, i. E. 10 years back 2006 but if you continue to feel depressed then you need help with medicines along with counselling. So consult a psychiatrsist for medications and therapy. Also you may follow general suggestions - do not stay alone - spend time with family and friends and people whom feel comfortable with. - do not keep your feelings to yourself talk them out - eat healthy, avoid smoking and alcohol, have a good sleep at night - exercise daily, do deep breathing exercises, yoga/ meditation for relaxation consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Ension headaches are very common among individuals and can range in pain severity. If you���re anxious, stressed, depressed, or have experienced recent trauma to the head, your headaches are probably stemming from this. Though this type of headache is common, it can occur any time, not just in the early morning. To prevent early morning headaches, follow these guidelines: Get enough sleep, but don���t oversleep. The right amount of sleep can reduce stress on your body and the chance of a headache. Not oversleeping also prevents unnecessary fatigue. Eat a healthy diet. Many headache types are related to poor nutrition. Counter this by eating healthy foods and avoiding sugar and junk food. Avoid overconsumption of alcohol and other substances. This will prevent hangover headaches. Check with your psychiatrist.

Dear Rohit, At your age night fall is common. There is no need to stop it. You mature hormonally at adolescent age itself. But economically and socially, even legally you are not fit for marriage. What happens to the semen produced in your body? Think. It has to get out. You are not married. So it goes out in the dream stage of sleep.Otherwise you have to masturbate and release it. Going to other women may be risky with diseases. So, accept night fall as a natural way of letting the unused fluid (semen) out. As age advances, it will reduce because of your other interests in life. Now also if you concentrate on your studies and learning many skills for your life, night fall will be reduced.

You are treating sleep symptomatically. You have not treated the cause of the sleep disturbance. Medicines as well as psychotherapy, depending upon your preference can be used to treat the cause. Medicines, if you wish, can be given as it is cheaper and less time consuming than psychotherapy. the medicines I am referring to are not addictive contrary to the sleep medicines you are reporting. As is obvious, a detailed evaluation will be needed before these measures are undertaken. Take care!

Please consult psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Do daily exercise and drink lot of water. All d best.

Sex Therapy - Best Way to Handle Sexual Problems

Sex Therapy - Best Way to Handle Sexual Problems

Over the last couple of decades, there has been a steady increase in the number of issues pertaining to sex. While there are a variety of reasons attributed to it including more exposure to sex through media forums, the changing lifestyle of people is said to be a bigger reason.

With people connected to their work all through the day and multitasking on the rise, work is never complete.  Even when retiring for the night, there are always things running about what next to do.  In cases where both couples are working, there is no match of timings either. That being the case, sex has taken a backseat, almost the last seat.

In addition, the altered Indian lifestyle also has led to greater exposure to sex leading to increased cases of abuse (family/friends circle), past unpleasant experiences, relationship failures, etc.  All these have changed the equations in relationships.

More and more couples are worried about a number of sexual issues, including:

  • Loss of desire 
  • Anxiety about sex
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Orgasmic disorder
  • Premature or delayed ejaculation
  • Conflicting sexual desires 
  • Past sexual abuse or assault
  • Loneliness
  • Image issues 
  • Promiscuity 

Sex therapy is on the rise, and 90% of the therapy consists of getting the couples to have a frank, open discussion. As much as it is a private topic, the problem can only be solved when an open discussion happens, both with the doctor and with the partner.

Whether it is past abuse or erectile dysfunction, the first step is to acknowledge the problem and discuss about it. If you are not able to confide in your partner or a good friend, it is advisable to seek a therapist.  

It is wise to pick a therapist who comes through referral. Some things to keep in mind are:

  1. Be open - Like any other counseling, sex therapy also involves a frank discussion with complete confidence in the person. The therapist will understand your concerns about anxiety or problem and help you how to communicate your desires and needs with your partner.
  2. It does not end with one discussion - Starting to work with a sex therapist is just the first step. It might take a while (a few months) to completely resolve the issue and identify the solution.
  3. Involve your partner - Though it is advisable to start talking alone with the therapist, after a couple of sessions, the partner may also be called in to see if there is something that needs to be worked upon.

Sex therapy can definitely help to resolve the above noted issues and improve sex life, which is very essential for a healthy body and relationship.

Hi, its natural to feel the confusion, see if you get all your tests done ecg etc related to heart and it has come out normal it is due to anxiety. Now for anxiety the course of medicine is 1-2 years where in if you leave the medicine in between symptoms will reoccur with greater intensity and duration of medicines will also increase. Along with medication there are scientific exercises to tame anxiety which you should do regularly like jacobs progressive muscle relaxation etc and many other natural lifestyle changes can help you cope up better.

What does our body actually loose when we masturbate? Does it has a bad effect on body? Wich will result to weakness or loss of memory power?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What does our body actually loose when we masturbate? Does it has a bad effect on body? Wich will result to weakness ...
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. The semen which is ejaculated during masturbation is protein in nature. So over masturbation may lead to deplenishment of the protein content in your body. Protein is needed for muscular growth. So loss of protein is not advisable for any human being.
