Is there any issue in smoking during server cold?
What are remedies to stop cold?
Dear Joshuva, Cold affects the breathing system in many ways. Smoking goes into the body through breathing system. Together how much the poor nose, throat and lungs can suffer. Stopping cold depends on the diagnosis. Some of the viruses are very difficult to stop. But Joshuva, you can stop smoking so that your breathing system does not suffer.

Dear lybrate-user, Probably you are suffering from a depressive disorder with paranoid ideas (subordinates telling lie about me). Inferiority complex, self pity, feeling sad, pain in head, words will not come easily, loneliness, etc may be the symptoms of a depressive disorder. Please consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed and get treated. You have said that this could affect your health.

Dear lybrate-user, Alcohol spoils liver. SGOT is an important liver enzyme. Don't go only by one blood test. There are many other liver function tests and ultrasound abdomen shows the size and echopattern of liver. What is the medicine you are taking? Stopping alcohol itself will improve the liver functions. So try that the best treatment. All the best.

Somewhere written that dementia patient cannot take qutan 100 mg tablet because it increases heart disease like heart failure or breathing problem or happens sudden death.

Dear lybrate-user, Definitely qutan is not the treatment for dementia. At times to control behavioural problems of dementia, it needs to be given. Qutan 100 mg will not kill a person with dementia. That means no sudden death. But persons with dementia die earlier if they use such drugs. Now you decide for yourself what is the next course of action. Discuss with other family members also. If you all can manage the behaviour of the patient, no need of qutan.

How much time should I take for drinking alcohol when I have taken antibiotic medicine?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
How much time should I take for drinking alcohol when I have taken antibiotic medicine?
Dear Fameer, There may be some interaction of alcohol with antibiotics. It depends on food taken, type and quantity of alcohol, type of antibiotic, duration of drinking, the medical illness for which antibiotics are given, age, sex, etc,etc. So, the best advice will be to quit drinking forever with this illness. Quitting alcohol gives many health benefits. Try now. All the best.

My son had approached me a couple of months ago and said that he has been unable to concentrate for a while and feels that his ability to remember stuff has decreased. I have noticed that for some while he has lacks energy and finds it hard to perform simple tasks. He has been very unstable emotionally and gets irked very easily and frequently. He gets very angry at himself and even harmed himself after a bad exam. His results were also very below par. He wasn't like this until about 6 months ago. I haven't seen him this sad before. I'm worried about his mental health and request you to recommend to me the next step I should take. I anxiously await your response. Thanking you.

Dear lybrate-user, It is very nice of you as father, want to help Rahil. Please take him to a child and adolescent psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment. In persons with epilepsy, there are many mental disturbances due to epilepsy itself or due to the drugs that he is taking. In adolescent age, it manifests more. There may be other stresses also in him that need to be addressed.

MBBS, DPM

Sir. I am addicted to smoke too much. And Now I am suffering from cold and cough ver much. .so sir what can I do now?
Dear lybrate-user, Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud. All the best.

Smoking weed is helpful or not if a person suffering through a C3 and C4 disc compression.
Dear Mrinal, Smoking weed alone is not helpful for disc compression. You need other treatments and regular exercises. On the other hand, weed trip can postpone your exercise schedule and mask your symptoms. There is a possibility that you may get hooked up to weed and step up to other addicting drugs

Dear lybrate-user, You are suffering too long with depression. Don't lose hopes. 20% of depressions are treatment resistant. For those like you, psychiatrists have many treatment options. You can take a course of 6 - 9 ECTs (electroconvulsive therapy) or rTMS sessions, or CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy), or you can add samE, Vitamin D3 (if it is low), thyroxine, 5HT, fish oil, etc. Your psychiatrist will be able to prescribe them for you. Please remember that these treatments are in addition to your censpram, tayo and felicita. That too in maximum dose. So far you have not gone to coma. With all your difficulties, you have looked after and brought your son up to 8 years. Please ask your doctor for add ons.

Dear lybrate-user, Mental illnesses are of different types. Each one has different symptomatology. Your sister-in-law's changing moods and withdrawn behaviour (not talking to anyone) are symptoms of mental illness. That does not mean, that your sister-in-law is mentally ill. There are some more criterias and tests that need to be done, before we diagnose. Therefore, please take her to a psychiatrist and get her diagnosed.

Dear Simanta, Since you are already taking drugs for B.P. and panic, it is better to consult the doctors before you take drugs for ED. Sometimes Nexito kind of drugs or the blood vessel changes due to high B.P. may be causing ED. If we find the cause, it can be treated.

Dear lybrate-user, The pimple at your back bone has nothing to do with your smoking. Please consult a doctor, preferably a surgeon, to diagnose fistula or something else. However quitting smoking has many health advantages. You are young. If you continuously motivate yourself for 12 weeks, you will be able to quit smoking. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, Probably you are suffering from obsessive ruminations. Depression is common with such obsessions. Probably you are on Clofranil (not Chlorofranil) which is the treatment for your condition. Please consult your doctor again so as to increase the dose of Clofranil or add another drug or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). The treatment may last for several months and repeated visits to psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate-user, It is sad that Anand smokes, drinks, overweight and no exercise. All these are risk factors for heart problems. I don't know his age. However at any age if his life style changes, his health can be maintained. His liver is compromised since AST, ALT are above normal. GGT is 3 times increased. The liver is affected more with alcohol than any other cause. Let him go through these reports with your doctor and make the doctor to advice on healthy life style. Slowly you can increase his motivation towards the change. Psychiatrists and clinical psychologist can help in motivation enhancement therapy - 12 weekly sessions.
