Dear lybrate-user, You have tried Lamotrigine and Quetiapine for 1 year. You got results that was good. You don't have a sleep disorder and you don't get freshness in the morning with sleeping pills. Because you are suffering from a bipolar disorder, which is a lifetime disorder, you need lifetime medicines. It is like diabetes that needs treatment even after sugar levels become normal. Please continue lamotrigine and quetiapine as doctor prescribed. If you have any concern of side effects, please discuss with the psychiatrist. Do not stop tablets without her/his advice. You are still young, hard worker and you deserve quality sleep. By the way, quetiapine is sedating. You discuss with the psychiatrist and increase it to an adequate dose, may be even 600 mg/day.

Dear Ds, You can take manforce as and when you need it. OCD and antidepressant tablets need to be taken daily. This is the age when you need manforce along with antidepressant tablets for a better quality of your life. Please enjoy life of this age. Please discuss with your doctor about antidepressant tablets that does not create erection problem, like Vilazodone, Trazodone, etc.

Sir I am OCD patients and taking medicine as per doctor advise XET CR Plus 12.5 mg twice a day and Depsol Plus 25 mg half morning and half evening and sos since last 10 years and for BP taking Telma H daily. Doctor advise take xet cr plus and depsol plus daily and not confirm when it will stop and advise in USA people taking XET XR Plus daily till life and told me if your life running smooth with one tablet then what is the issue. I agree becoz when I try to stop then face big problem of anxiety and etc. Please advise the above medicine will taken by my till entire life and their is no side effect. As per doctor no negative effect. Please guide me. I am very much upset due to this problem and tears coming when depression coming too much with thought of Kahi Cardiac arrest na aa Jaye, Ya Heart attack Na ho jaye but 18 years gone out nothing has happen but when this thought coming then I will take depsol plus and zappiz 0.5 mg then found rest. When this thought coming, I cannot sit and too much anxiety will face if depsol plus and zappiz was not available then what will happen I do not know, is their any solution to avoid this problem once for all.

Dear Rakesh, OCD is a lifelong disorder and needs treatment for life long. Are you ready to live totally apathetic after cutting off the brain parts causing OCD (solution once for all)? Instead, why not you take tablets and live with good quality life? There are no drugs without any side effect. But you are getting more benefit out of tablets than side effect. If Depsol plus and Zapiz is not available, there will be better drugs than these two. Science will develop. Already in these 18 years, Xet CR/ER plus has come up.

Respected sir, If someone is suffering from severe OCD and his IQ test score is 57 at that time and after treatment he get cured and normal like us. Can his IQ be between 85-115 range. Is it possible that his IQ lies in normal range.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Please talk to the psychologist who did the IQ test. She/he will know what tests are done, what was the behaviour during the test, was there scatter among the subtests, etc. If OCD has interfered with timed tests of IQ, his IQ will improve. Otherwise, IQ is fixed for life of the person.

Dear Paul, Both alcohol and nexpro fast act on the stomach. So better not to combine both. Instead of asking for side effects, please let me know what you are feeling new after taking nexpro fast since these 6 months. There are many side effects reported. If it is reported by 5% of patients, it will be a side effect. 95% of patients may not get those side effects. You may be in 95%. So better not to worry about side effects now if you don't have any in these 6 months.

Dear lybrate-user, Good that you know alcohol is causing dyspepsia and GERD. You must be knowing the treatment also- STOP alcohol. If you have any difficulty in stopping alcohol, please take the help of doctors. They give you vitamins and benzodiazepines for withdrawal symptoms, they give anti craving tablets for 9-12 months to reduce your craving for alcohol. They may make you get aversion to alcohol with disulfiram, if needed.

Dear Karim, Instead of taking more medicines, why don't you motivate yourself to stop bedi smoking? If you get withdrawal, take the help of nicotine gum for 12 weeks or so. You are young and you can stop smoking by your persistent efforts. All the best.

Dear Harish, Ciplar 10 mg is safe if you don't have any asthma (yourself or family members.) It is better to check your BP again after taking tablets.

Dear, Lazy, sleepy are symptoms of depression needing increase of tablets dose. Zet cr 25 and stalopam lite dose is not enough. You need to visit the doctor again who will increase the dose or add another tablet or therapy. Please remember lybrate-userthat loose motions and gastropain may also be due to anxiety or depression. It needs to be diagnosed properly so that the same antidepressant tablet will be helpful for both.
