I am a 28 year old male and being treated for schizophrenia since may 2012. Initially started on tablets resperidone for a year thereafter switched over to invega sustena. I had to quit my job before I started medication. My positive symptoms disappeared around three months after starting treatment and the negative symptoms almost completely gone recently when I joined a job for six months staying away from home in a foreign land. I feel quite confident and well. During the past period I continued to drink moderately (around 120ml, two to three times a week), and smoke around 5-8 cigarettes a day. When can I stop taking medication?

I am amazed at your response to the treatment. You are doing unusually well and you must keep it up. Alcohol and smoking are really bad for you even in small quantities. I am concerned that you are not into therapy in conjunction with the medication. You will need this type of monitoring and help and they can tell you about the cessation of medicines. As far as I know, it is very rare to come off of medication with schizophrenia but in combination with psychotherapy you can explore this possibility, and especially because you have responded so well already. Doing a job and being functional is very important to your recovery. Also keeping away from family may be helpful because they can inadvertently trigger relapses easily, being the unit from which you developed the condition in the first place.

no sex never stops height growth. it improves personal capacity and mental health also. twise or thrice it is also not a big problem. there is no physical problems. if he addicted next time if she is not available then starts psychological problems. there is no chance of physical problems. but there is a chance of psychological problems. early stage sex addiction it is not good for personality development. if one girl is over then he searches another girl. if she not agreed then problem starts. at this without knowing anything it is good. but now generation is very fast. it destroys career life. so my opinion it is better to stop. if is ok then continue. no physical problems will not come in future also. better to take good food and relax most of the time. dont think too much about sex. dont sit alone and dont think alone. be share your personal feelings and problems with close friends and family members. be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

Hi lybrate-user, alcohol is bad for the liver and it does not exactly increase confidence, it reduces inhibition, thus making one excitable for a brief while. On the contrary one can say or do something under the influence of alcohol which might be embarrassing, later. You could rehearse speaking infront of the mirror to boost your confidence. Most improtantly, there is space for all kinds of people our world- introverts and extroverts too. So, accept yourself how you are. Work on multiplying your strengths. And remmeber it is important to speak relevant things, not a lot of things. Good luck.

Cigarette or nicotine addiction is difficult to give up due to withdrawal symptoms including dysphoria, irritability and craving. Identifying the withdrawal symptoms helps tackle the specific issue. Other measures include nicotine chewing gum and pastilles that are available over the counter and cognitve behaviour therapy.

Relax. No one else can do it for u, you have to take charge of your life n body, motherhood completes you, does not stress you unless you perceive it that day, plan your day well, make a time table n stick tio it, incorporate 45mins of exercise n pranayama for yourself, sometimes take a break from daily routine, do not be too sensitive about what others say:)

If she is gone for good, you have to plan ahead and think with your kids priorities utmost in mind. I can understand your grief, but many times things in life happen to our surprise and dejection. Learn to live with the situation, introspect the reasons why she left. Another life partner might be difficult for your kids to adjust. Think well and plan wisely. All the best

Poor memory could be due to various reasons: bad learning habits, easily distracted, low attention span, stress, not understanding the material properly, too many other things happening in your life, boredom, too much responsibility, pressure, difficulty level may be beyond your grasping capacity, etc. There are a few memory enhancers that help, that can be learned. I have a few exercises that help, if followed meticulously. Contact me, if you need them.

Dependent personality disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

� being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can?t take care of themselves

� investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people

� displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior

� avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support

� experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment

� finding it hard to be alone

� putting the needs of others before their own

� tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment

� being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end ? and forming new relationships as soon as possible

� being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others

� rarely taking the initiative

� avoiding personal responsibility

� avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning

� being over-sensitivity to criticism

� feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail

� having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.

The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style ? which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern ? such as feeling overwhelmed ? so that they can?t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn?t form a dependency ? and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

Dear lybrate user, you are feeling sad because may be some of your expectations are not met. It will be helpful if you can talk about your feelings. Talk to someone who you can trust and who will be able to guide you properly. Talk to your parents, teachers, relatives who are close to you. By doing this you will get a different perspective about your life and you may also get some direction in life. Life is difficult for most of the people, but how they want to live it makes them happy or sad. Imagine, how and where you would like to see yourself after 10 years. Then make a concrete plan to attain that goal. Remember, what you do today is going to affect your future. If you want a better future, work for it now. Try to understand the reason for your inactivity. If it is laziness, make a conscious effort to get out of if. Stay in the company of positive people. Take charge of your life. All the best.
