Dear lybrate-user, If your anxiety interferes with your life, you need treatment. If you consult a psychiatrist, she/he may prescribe an anxiolytic for a short term. You can also request for relaxation or cognitive therapy in addition. Please keep a watch against substance use/abuse for relief from anxiety.

I am 57 years old, male, having Depression/Anxiety and Schizophrenia since 1987. I have taken innumerous drugs and got relief. Right now I am on Sertraline 100 mg 1-0-0 and mirtazapine 15 mg 0-0-1 for depression/Anxiety. Symptoms are under control. For schizophrenia, I am currently on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and qutipin 100 mg 0-0-1. There is relief. But there no positive symptoms viz hallucinations or delusions. But there are negative symptoms like dullness and no pleasure in doing day-to-day activities, staying aloof from relatives and friends. In short, I have withdrawn into my shell. Are the above symptoms confirmed negative symptoms of schizophrenia or are they symptoms of depression? Please advice.

You are already on two good antidepressants so it is less likely that you have uncontrolled depression. These seem more likely to be negative symptoms of schizophrenia according to the data you provided. However it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in person to decide any form of treatment too be improvised. Also it is would be prudent to reconsider the diagnosis too if you still face the same problems in spite of taking regular medications. Consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Hello! My cousin has been diagnosed with brain tumour which isn't malignant (age-15) He finished his radiation 3 months ago. Now he's facing problems like forgetting people and forgetting what he's doing and speaking unrelatedly. Here doctors say that that's because of edema and will subside within 3-4 months. Is there anything to worry?

At this point I would suggest that you just encourage him to do memory exercises. Do questions and answers. Play games like scrabble, word games. Singing and listen to music. Writing is also good exercise. Take medicines prescribed.

My daughter in us suffering from bipolar disorder with rush of imaginary thoughts. She is healthy child and the problem arose after delivery in us. Why the problem has come. She is taking tablets and she is fine with medication.

Sometimes, after delivery some females experience emotional blackout. More chances of development of psychiatric disorders are in those who are away from their families/ husband/ immigrants/ smokers/ previous history of any psychiatric disorders. It is sometimes seen that some ladies suffer from post partum depression, which not if properly dealt with may turn into bipolar disorder or major depressive disorder. It is fine that she is good on medications, but be in touch with her and do not let her feel that she is far away from home. Video calls, telephone calls are good way of two way communication. She should be keeping her busy in baby, household job and her work if she is working lady. She should try to stay stressfree by avoiding unnecessary stress and strain, particularly if she is working.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loneliness is rather a state of mind or called trait. There are many people who like loneliness. Hope you are such a person. Your trait is introversion. Don't worry and be happy about being inteovert because only introvert people can think creative and innovative. Be proud. Secondly do not compare yourself with other adolescents. You are different from others in so many ways than you think. Take care.

Just like cigarettes, weed also as its damaging effects on all most all systems of your body; starting from lung to brain. It is good that you have stopped smoking cigarettes I would strongly advice you to stop weed as well. And once you stop it keep it away for life time for successful, healthy and happy life. Hope this helps, wishing you very best.

How to concentrate on studies?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Dear ,you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Hi, firstly, I appreciate you for having taken the initiative to express your issues/ concerns and seek help. Your symptoms are indicative of you being depressed. I would advise you to meet up a psychologist/ psycho-therapist with no further delay. He/ she may advise diagnostics & prescribe mood elevating medications/ anti-depressants as appropriate. Also, should it require, he/ she may refer you to a endocrinologist/ or any other physician for consultation as apropos. Simultaneously, however, keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies. Do exercise/ walk regularly for at least 30 minutes. Yogasanas/ pranayams can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focused even during these tough times. At the same time, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can help you relax, rejuvenate, connect with self, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Do remain mentally strong, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that this condition is treatable and shall definitely resolve soon with appropriate medical intervention. Life is indeed beautiful, and you must try enjoying every moment of it irrespective. Hope this helps. Looking forward to you getting well soon. Take care and all the very best.

Dear Sir,

Neither pill nor drink can get you healthy sleep. This may be short term arrangement, but it can lead to addiction. To have peaceful sleep, you have to first get rid of the addiction and its negative effects. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem, without causing adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine nux vomica 200 daily in the morning and in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.

Does the person with hallucination problem need counselling? Medicine given once worked and the patient was recovered...
Hi, please consult the doctor he may want to change medication depending upon current symptoms and severity. If you need to help someone else suffering from hallucinations, it is important to remain calm throughout the entire process. Hallucinations can become sources of severe anxiety, so the patient might already be in a state of panic. Adding more stress and panic to the situation will only worsen things. Calmly explain to the patient that you are unable to see, hear, feel, taste, or touch the sensation he or she is describing. Explain this in a straightforward and non-accusatory manner to avoid upsetting the patient. If the hallucinations are mild to moderate, and if the patient has had past episodes of hallucinations, you may also try to explain that the sensations he or she is experiencing are not real. Patients who experience hallucinations for the first time or those with severe hallucinations may not be able to understand that they are hallucinating, however, and may lash out if they are questioned or doubted. Distract the patient. Depending on the circumstances, it might be helpful to distract the patient by switching topics of conversation or by physically moving to a different location. This is especially true of mild to moderate hallucinations, but you may not be able to reason with patients experiencing severe hallucinations. All the best.
