Psychiatric Disorder - How To Tract It?

Psychiatric Disorder - How To Tract It?

Psychiatric disorders like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia do not appear all of a sudden. There are small changes that happen to an individual over a long period of time until the disease fully develops. These signs and symptoms might be too subtle in the early stage for other people to notice until they become obvious. But an early detection of any irregularity proves to be more beneficial for the patient in the long run.

It is important to know the telltale symptoms of mental disorder to distinguish between what is regular and what is not.

-Withdrawal
Everyone needs some quiet time to cool off and relax but if a person continuously withdraws him/herself from social occasions and avoids meeting or speaking to friends, it could be a sign that something is wrong. Losing interest in life, work and people are symptoms of depression and psychotic disorder.

-Thinking problems
Having trouble concentrating, remembering, understanding and explaining oneself in a coherent manner are some common signs of mental disorder.

-Anxiety
Excessive stress and anxious behavior for a prolonged period are not normal. Frequent heart palpitations, headache, shortness of breath, racing mind and restlessness are cries of help that need to be heard.

-Emotional outbursts
Sudden dramatic outbursts for no apparent reason, frequent mood swings and feeling distressed are potent signs of mental illnesses. These kinds of behavior are seen as part of a person's nature and so they are often unnoticed.

-Changes in appetite and sleeping patterns
Oversleeping may be a sign of depression and insomnia could be a sign of anxiety. Changes in appetite and not caring about oneself or the world are indicators of a mental problem.

Anorexia And Bulimia - How To Tackle It?

Anorexia And Bulimia - How To Tackle It?

An eating disorder, mostly appears when your food habits reach levels of extremity.
Anorexia nervosa and Bulimia are two main and the most common eating disorders found in men and women. One is the lower extreme while the other is the higher extreme in terms of food intake.

Anorexia

People who are affected with anorexia think of themselves to be very overweight in spite of actually being very slim and thin. Anorexia inflicted people consume less than a thousand calories per day. They exercise rigorously and try to find more ways to lose weight. They vomit a lot due to the insufficient diet and suffer more.

The treatment for anorexia nervosa generally includes a mix of mental treatment, and regulated weight gain program. An anorexia patient should seek treatment as early as possible. The best ways to deal with anorexia are:

-  Psychological Treatment

Various psychological treatments can be used to cure anorexia of different stages. They are- Cognitive analytic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, focal psychodynamic therapy. A family's response is also an important psychological factor. Proper encouragement and effort should be given.


-  Weight gain program

This measure will guide an anorexic patient to improve his diet habits and slowly gain weight. A patient is monitored carefully, traits are recognized and a likewise diet pattern is given.

Bulimia

Bulimia nervosa is another category of eating disorder. The main characteristic of this disorder is  overeating in the highest level. Binge eating is observed, followed by attempts by the affected individual to lose weight. A bulimia patient is constantly trapped in the cycle of overeating and then thinking about losing weight.

Maybe you do not like the idea of binge eating and fear getting obese, but once affected by bulimia a patient cannot follow this and binge eats. Later, they adapt extreme measures for losing weight.

The primary methods to deal with bulimia are:

-  Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy includes examining your bulimia and related issues with an expert. It is proven that these sorts of psychotherapies restrict the symptoms of bulimia. The three modes of psychotherapy include- Cognitive-behavioral therapy, Family-based therapy and Interpersonal psychotherapy.

-  Medications
Medicines such as anti-depressants can be taken by bulimia patients along with psychotherapy. Prozac is a recommended and effective medicine.

-  Proper diet plan
For bulimia affected patients, having a proper balanced diet is very essential. A diet expert should be consulted, who will make the most essential food pattern for you. Undertaking a weight loss program is also recommended.

Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia should be avoided, and you should know the best ways to deal with them.

My best friend, 25 year old suffering from depression. He is basically less talkative and more sensitive guy. In early years of his life, he lost his mother at the age of 16 and get into a first depression. It took him more than 2 years to recover. Again depressed at the age of 21 when he lost his father. Due to these frequent incidents, he was lost. Two years back he get into a great friendship with a girl (usually he won't talk to girls), he is so much attached with her, spending lot of time with her, up to one year he continued friendship. After that she moved to different place, he was became alone at that time. Even though she is far from him, she used to talk with him. After few months, she started ignoring him, when he asked about this, she replied like she is not ignoring. But he felt more ignored and he thought this friendship ends, So he stopped talking with her. But she keeps trying to talk with him. But he is not accepting her friendship, also he don't want to lose her friendship. Recently they met each other, he was sad and happy at the same time. If he involved too much with her again, he don't have will power to lose her. That's the reason he is trying to avoid her (also unable to forget her Almost one year it seems). He is in confused mind, mentally depressed. Any suggestions that I can convey to him.

I want just information on duration taking tablet OCD ,can I take nutrition/protein.

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Ocd tablets have to be taken for a long trem perhaps 2-3 years. The medicines can't be suddenly stopped as this may result in relapse of ocd, so dosage should be gradually tapered and stopped. While tapering if there are relapse of ocd ,then again tablets should be continued. Regarding proteins, vitamins you can take.

Be relaxed. Stress results in increased steroid levels, which results in difficulties in implantation of embryo.
