I have generalized anxiety disorder and could you pls suggest me the proper drug.
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. For GAD there is persistent symptoms most of the time of the day. Consult a psychiatrist and seek treatment.

I came to know your app that using omega 3 fatty acid is useful in the case of memory loss. Recently my son is complaining that he can't concentrate on his studies & forgets what he reads. Pl tell me which contains omega fatty acids.

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Omega three fatty acids may be helpful in memory loss. There is only supportive evidences for it in research. It is not advisable to start any supplement without finding the actual cause for the problem. Facing difficulty in studying and remembering can be caused by many reasons including attention defecit hyperactivity disorder and specific learning disability. It's best to show to a psychiatrist, special educator or pediatrician and find the cause of difficulty in studying before giving any medicine.

I am 29 years old and i am very much addicted to alcohol and recently I managed to stop taking alcohol. So I want to know how can I reduce/detoxify alcohol. From my body.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Alcohol is a very potent substance affecting the brain. Initially a person like the effect and he continues to abuse substance. Later on due to strong craving and withdrawal discomfort he fails to maintain abstinence for long and relapses again. It is good that you have decided to change. But leaving alcohol suddenly particularly at home is dangerous due to serious life-threatening withdrawal effects. Hence I advise you to consult a psychiatrist/de-addiction centre for professional help.

I unable to give attention to any work. Sad thinkings come to mind. It seems that my sharp brain has been blocked. Please help how I control my mind.

Homeopath, Secunderabad
Nothing to worry , because of excessive feeling of stress and anxiety these symptoms will develop. Better to take homoeopathy medicines to reduce these symptoms permanently. Avoid sugary food and take vitamin d foods like fish, milk; omega 3 fatty acids like nuts along with medicines. You may consult a homeopath.

Panic Attack - Can It Be Stopped?

Masters in Clinical Psychology, Bachelor in Psychology

Panic Attack - Can It Be Stopped?

A panic attack can start suddenly and may be caused due a variety of reasons. A patient of depression and anxiety usually goes through such attacks. The symptoms of these attacks include sudden and persistent fear, the feeling of losing control, the feeling of having a heart attackpalpitations problem, sweating, dizzy spells and more. It has been medically proven that most adults go through at least one or more panic attacks in their lifetime.

Here are a few ways in which one can stop a panic attack:

  1. Recognise the Signs: Take note of the symptoms. From a feeling of choking to detachment, losing control, surreal experiences, dizzy spells, nausea, pain in the abdomen and chills, to tremors, and a fear of facing death, there are many symptoms that can put your body in a fight or flight response where things may suddenly seem terrifying, and without any reason at that.
  2. Breath Control: Learn to control your breathing as soon as you begin to experience the symptoms. This will help in distraction even as it soothes and calms you down, thus forcing you to think rationally about the fear and helplessness that you are suddenly experiencing. Sit down with your knees bent and let your shoulders relax.
  3. Relaxation Techniques: Learn and practice a few relaxation techniques during times like these. This may include simple things like rubbing your neck and more focused activities like talking to yourself and meditating.
  4. Continuation: Remember to hold your breath, let it out, and then carry on with the activity that you had set out to do. If you stop what you were doing, then the message going to your brain is loud and clear and you will panic even further. But if you relax and zone out before letting yourself go about the chore, however robotically, then it will have a positive effect on the messages that are sent to your brain.
  5. Medication: In the event that you are not able to fully control and relax yourself and your thoughts, then you may want to see a psychiatrist who can prescribe specific medication that will help in relaxing you. Sedatives and antidepressants may also be prescribed for patients who are going through severe episodes of panic with debilitating symptoms.
  6. Differentiate between Stress and Panic: Many times, we may feel like we are panicking, yet this may simply be a way of going through stress. It is important to focus on recognising events and reactions as stress or panic.

Not allowing yourself run away from a situation is a sure shot way of dealing with panic as this condition the brain to be more accepting and resilient. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Tips to Deal With Ocd

Tips to Deal With Ocd

OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder, which can be indicated through obsession, having pervasive thoughts or thoughts, which may upset you, having certain compulsions, and practicing certain rituals, which may help to control or manage your obsessions. It is a disorder, which cannot be cured, but can be controlled with the help of treatment. Mostly, OCD is considered to be a lifelong disorder. It often circulates around the fear of germs or sickness and around keeping order and maintaining patterns. A person suffering from OCD can often be extremely annoying. Hence here are a few tips you can use to deal with OCD:

1. Understand OCD: The first step towards dealing with OCD is to know what you have to deal with. Gather as much information as you can about OCD and also read up about how you can overcome it. You need to know the symptoms of OCD so you can identify the disorder. Almost everyone suffers from OCD at one point of their lives. Hence, it is extremely important to understand OCD in order to treat it.

2. Work with your compulsions: Do not get petrified about your compulsions if you are planning to overcome your OCD, instead work with them. Try not to encourage their development. If you are worrying about whether you have switched of the lights, try and develop a mental picture of you doing it. If you are able to get a clear picture, then you have, otherwise you can go and switch it off. Another option is to maintain a list where you tick off the activity once you have done it so that you don't have to worry about it later on. 

3. Maintain a journal: Maintaining a journal will help you curb your fears and negative thoughts. Write down all your obsessive thought and reflect on how they are affecting you and whether they are worth your worry or time. Gradually you will see that you are able to control these thoughts and will be able to push away any negativity which comes along with them.

4. Remind yourself about the good in you: Make this your regular practice. Do not undermine yourself, instead make yourself feel good. This will help you to get over the fact that you have done something wrong in your daily activities (like not turning the gas off when you actually have) and that wrong is going to harm people.

Chronic OCD will require therapy and medical assistance. Hence if you are able to detect the signs at an early level and are able to adopt the above measures to control it, then going to a doctor might not be necessary.
