Dear Manoj, Congratulations for leaving alcohol. Please continue your motivational level to keep away from alcohol. Don't worry about Hb 18.7. It is due to concentration of blood. It happens in persons who are dependent on alcohol. It will improve by itself if alcohol is kept away. You need even check it again.

I am taking antabuse medicine but I want to start drinking alcohol again please suggest any medicine so I didn't have any problem.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, With Antabuse, taking even a few ml of alcohol is dangerous. If you want to restart drinking, please talk to your family and doctor. If everyone agrees that you will benefit with alcohol, you need to stop taking antabuse. It takes about 9-10 days for antabuse to leave the body. Only after that you can drink safely and also enjoy. If you want to drink with antabuse, please get admitted to a hospital with ICU and drink. You will enjoy the drink. You may suffer with acetaldehyde reaction. So take a valid decision after consulting significant persons.

Dear respective doctors, My younger brother (21, Student, Nagpur) having a mental disorder (as he says). please note the problem Carefully. Since last 2.5 years he says that He felt very guilt after seeing any Dirt, any Potty, any Drainage, sound while Someone cleaning his tongue. He always says that due to this the dirt things live in his mind and After Spitting or drinking water, he feels ok. But the most dangerous problem is that, He says he is having a continuous headache (24x7) since last 2.5 years. He is loosing hair too. His hair are thin. So he keeps head shaved for every 15 days. Plz, due to this situation he very distressed. My most important question is that, Why he feels guilt after seeing dirt things and feels good only after spitting? And what are the causes of CONTINUOUS HEADACHE since 2.5 years. please doctor, help me. We have visited some of doctors but nothing has happened. please help me. I am serious about his life.

Dear Gaurav, Your brother may be suffering from OCD - Obsessive compulsive disorder. Because of his obsessive thought of dirt and he does a compulsive action of spitting. It relieves him temporarily for sometime. Again he will think of dirt. It is a treatable disorder with tablets and therapy. The treatment goes on for a long term more than 2 years. During the treatment, he can continue his studies. About hair fall and headache, i need more details about the type, duration, site, precipitating and relieving factors, associated symptoms, etc.

Dear lybrate-user, It is good that you recognised your anxiety, insomnia and heaviness in head early. Some of the depressions are recurrent. It is also good that you were free from all these for 2 years. Now get back to the psychiatrist and he will again start you on tablets. Early detection and prompt treatment is good for recurrent depressions - that too once in 2 years.

Dear Neeraj, Nicotine in cigarettes act on the nervous and vascular systems. Erection, stronger dick, also depends on nervous and vascular system. So, some people develop impotency due to smoking. Since it is only nicotine induced impotency, stopping smoking itself will give you stronger dick.

Dear Amit, It is always better to get the salt name in your prescription. You can take any company's salt that is easily available near your place. The dose is important like 100 mg, 0.5 mg and 50 mg. Alternately you can choose the company which gives cheap.

I have a relative who is 38 years old and seems to be suffering from bipolar disorder. He is not ready to visit any doctor and day by day his condition is worsening. Can you please guide us if you could be of any help in this case.

Dear lybrate-user, Usually bipolar disorder persons don't like to be treated. That is only in manic phase. In depressive phase Saurabh wants to feel better and he may want treatment though you may find him fine. Mostly in the normal phase, psychiatrists counsell him for regular long term mood stabilisers. As a relative, you can consult the psychiatrist who has diagnosed him as bipolar - even without Saurabh. He may give you some suggestions. Or, wait for the phase to change by itself when he will be co operative. Alternately, if he is suicidal or homicidal, you can seek the help of magistrate to treat him without his consent.

Dear Harish, There are many companies that manufacture desvenlafaxine. Most companies have their distributors at Chennai. You can ask your nearest chemist for desvenlafaxine 50 mg. He will get it for you. Please don't stop the drug on your own. Discuss with your doctor before weaning.

I want a suggestion that my father drinks alcohol every night before having dinner and then he keeps on analysing things and talks bad things about people. Then he blames us for nothing. Then there is fight between my father and mother. Sometimes it becomes very severe. He getsout of control. So kindly suggest me how can I make him leave alcohol because he will never get ready to the consult a doctor about his alcoholism.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Probably your father is dependent on alcohol. These are the routine talks and fights when he is drunk. Leaving alcohol is difficult. Withdrawal symptoms make him go back to alcohol. You and your mother need to understand this and help him out instead of telling him to leave alcohol and fight. Get help from your father's friends or brothers to motivate him to go to doctor. Be prepared for admission into hospital for few days also. Take him to doctor by telling few bodily complaints like stomach pain, sleep disturbances, lack of digestion, shakiness, etc. Let the doctor find out about alcohol and treat. If there is a alcoholic anonymous group in your city or nearby, you can approach them, they will come home and talk to father.

Dear lybrate-user, You should ask someone who has seen you shivering and falling, to ask the question. You are not in a position to answer whether it is a fit (seizure) or not. It is better to visit a psychiatrist along with a person who has observed your sleep activities to get diagnosed and treated.
