Can I drink beer or smoke after taking kutub x 30. If I do what should be its effect on erection.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Can I drink beer or smoke after taking kutub x 30. If I do what should be its effect on erection.
Dear lybrate-user, Kutub x 30 may contain two drugs. Sildenafil (50 mg); Dapoxetine (30 mg). Please check with the leaflet attached to the tablets. Sildenafil needs a good cardiac function. Smoking and beer may disturb heart functioning normally. So, check with your cardiologist and use Sildenafil. It will have no effect on erection, if combined. Good erection will come. Conditions apply. Dapoxetine has no effect on erection either separately or combined. I will advice you not to use two drugs together. Use only Sildenafil, if you want erection after consulting cardiologist.

Dear lybrate-user, Probably you have developed a health anxiety. Mastubation in a biologically mature man, is a normal sexual outlet. It can not cause loss in your confidence. Similarly, just 1 mg more of cholesterol in your blood check, can not cause any health issue in you for the present. You need therapy to bring all your strengths in focus - masters, fit health, good english, may be friends, hobbies, driving skills, job opportunities, etc. Please consult a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist and undergo psychotherapy for few weeks.

Does nicotex gum can be used by diabetic patient for quitting smoking. My father age 60 has high BP and diabetes and addicted to smoking and alcohol how to get rid from it.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Shyamal, Your father can use Nicotex gum for maximum 12 weeks to quit smoking. With high BP, diabetes and age, smoking adds to risk for heart diseases. Quitting smoking reduces the risk even after many years of smoking. Nicotex will not be useful to quit alcohol. He may need other treatments for alcohol withdrawal.

Dear Ashok, It is difficult to live with dementia. For you it is difficult to see her without talking or overtalking. At the age of 81 years most of her systems work less efficiently. You have to learn to use trial and error method to adjust drugs's dose. For the time being, please continue Donamem. Try and stop Sizodon. Manage her with trika. If she is hyper, give her again Sizodon 0.5 mg once a day, probably at night when you don't want her to be hyper. Please check any other medical condition is causing these hyperactive or not speaking state. It might be dehydration or electrolyte imbalance or hypoglycemia or fever. Once the medical condition is treated, she may not need Sizodon.

How much amount of beer is safe for drinking? Is 12 % alcohol content beer safe? Once in a month?
Dear lybrate-user, Once a month 1 bottle of beer is safe for you not to become dependent on alcohol. But you seem to be having more problems and you are taking Dilantin, Felicita, etc. Please consult your doctor about the safety for driving, for interaction with those drugs, for inducing a fit, etc.

Hello Mam. 2 days back you had advised me to give my brother Becosules cap for 5 days and SM fibro tab for one month (but instead of SM Fibro I have given him Lycopene cap coz that medicines was not available in the medical shop. N I have said him to do exercise with ice cream sticks n blowing balloons n he is doing everything n now the results are good. Before only 9 sticks used to go in his mouth but today 16 sticks are inserting in his mouth. So I was asking should I continue wit Becosules cap and lycopene cap? N instead of giving lycopene cap should I start giving him SM Fibre Coz may be now it is available. N now he even quit smoking n gutka 10 days has been over he dint evn touched gutka n smoking.

Dear Iffath, Congratulations to you and your friend for quitting gutkha and smoking. Find out how much he has saved so for by quitting it. Calculate the amount to 3 months and ask him what he wants as a gift for that amount. Please continue to motivate him for 3 months at least to stop both gutkha and smoking. If he has any withdrawal symptoms he can take replacement for next 12 weeks in decreasing quantities. Tell him stopping them gave full opening of mouth in 10 days itself. Further more benefits will come. Both the tablets are only supportive. Quitting is the treatment. All the best.

My sgpt liver is 118. After taking alcohol and smoking I am vomiting little bit. So please tell me remedy.
Dear Ankit, SGPT seems to be raised nearly 3 fold. It might be due to a liver disorder or any other condition. GGT is better for diagnosis of alcoholic liver diseases. You yourselves have given the remedy. Only after taking alcohol and smoking, you are vomiting. Stop both of them, you will not vomit. Your liver will function better. Your overall health will improve. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, Your problem can be panic or lungs. Why don't you get it checked up instead of suffering. A psychiatrist is a medical MBBS doctor. She/he will be able to diagnose it properly by history and examination alone. Some time she/he may ask for lung function tests. It is nice to know that it does not affect your work. Your quality of life will improve with proper treatment.

Dear lybrate-user, You seem to be having many symptoms of a serious mental disorder. Of course it will be treatable if diagnosed properly. Please don't get married without treatment. It will add to your burden. With treatment you can find a job and you will not feel others are exploiting you. Please take your mother along to a psychiatrist to give further information to diagnose you. She may help you to co operate with treatment.

Dear lybrate-user, Since 15 years you are suffering. Have you taken any treatment so far from any psychiatrist? If not consult a psychiatrist not only for treatment, but also for a better diagnosis. No coordination, can't recognize people, not able to walk, can not lift head from pillow, etc may not be due to depression alone. I don't know your age. In older persons these symptoms may be due to neurological or hormonal disorder. Depression may be added due to long duration of 15 years.

Dear Jeet, PCOD is not an incurable disease. The ovum is not released regularly - that is all. It is treatable just by diet and exercise or with tablets. Please go and talk to the doctor who diagnosed PCOD in your fiancee. You are still young. Decide to finish studies and get married to her. Tell yours or hers parents that she needs treatment and reduce weight. If she is interested in getting married to you, she will start doing it. She can continue to do that after marriage also because she would like to have a baby.

I am 24 year old male I have ocd from past 2 years I have consulted a doctor but I have not received a good result what should I do now.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Please give more details of your symptoms, problems you are facing, what consultation you have done, with a psychiatrist or any other doctor, what tablet was given, how much dose, for how long, what results do you expect. OCD is a long term treatment since it is a difficult condition to treat. The first consultation will be diagnosis and assessment. Later if you are put on tablets, they need periodic (every 2-3 weeks) to assess and increase the dose or add another drug of therapy. Therapy with ERP also takes many sessions depending on the number of obsessions you have. The result you expect is how to live with these obsessions without problems in your day today life. Please keep meeting the psychiatrist as often as she/he asks you to meet.

Dear Mayank, You can have alcohol with Nalcon. There is no reaction. You may not enjoy alcohol like before since Nalcon reduces the effect of good feeling with alcohol. So there will not be any craving for alcohol. You may drink less units of alcohol or may not feel like drinking again.

Dear Aakash, Constipation, loss of weight, eating less and acne may not be due to smoking alone. Please consult a doctor and get diagnosed properly. Loss of 25 kg is serious if it is not intentional. However motivate yourself to quit smoking. Usually it increases your appetite so that you eat more and put on weight.

Dear lybrate-user, You know your have many problems needing treatment. If your parents don't understand and take you to psychiatrist, you should go on your own. After all you need treatment. You can go to any government hospital or medical college hospital in your place and take treatment, if you can not pay. Once you are treated, your parents will know what you are. I don't think 10 mg tryptomer alone will help you. You may need more dose or change of medicines. Please consult the psychiatrist again. I can not say whether the feeling of fainting is due to tryptomer or due to your panic attack. I need more details to decide.
