Dear, dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is a learning disability characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Dyslexia and depression are not related. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist.

What is the effect to stop adwize tablet after taking this tablet for 3 and half years to cure my autistic child now aged 13 years, who is also is an epilectic patient.

Your child has to continue Antiepileptic medication. As regards Autism ia an associated disorder, hence advisable not to stop medication. You can see Autism is a condition that affects mental and physical well being. In fact autism is not a single disorder rather a group of ailments that is classified as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Autistic children have problems with social interactions. They may also encounter problems with verbal and non-verbal communication, exhibit pattern of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests, hyper sensitive to light, sound, touch etc (sensory overload). Otherwise majority of the cases are diagnosed anywhere between the age of 2-5 years. Interestingly, there are many individuals who may have ASD but never aware of it. Though the exact cause for autism is unknown, genetics plays an important part. Environmental, immunological and metabolic factors may have a contributory role. Since, it is a spectrum of disorders, there is no single reason attributed to this condition. Genetic, environmental, immunological and metabolic causes may be the contributing factor. Where genetic basis is identified as a cause, palliative measures are initiated immediately. When the reasons are not clear, diagnosis, classification and management invariably gets delayed. As stated earlier under watchful eyes of parents or family physicians, autistic symptoms could be recognized early. Severely autistic infants do not make normal babbling sound and have abnormal eye movements. Some of the symptoms include but restricted to limited vocabulary, unable to follow verbal or facial cues, abnormal eye movement or hand eye co-ordination etc. They also tend to make incoherent sounds. These children also do not follow simple commands. Many times these symptoms are glossed over delaying early diagnosis. Denial, my child is normal attitudes contribute to the delay in early diagnosis. In general ASD is loosely classified into five different types. However, this classification is hotly debated. 1. Pervasive developmental disorder(PDD) - Children suffering from PDD show delay in development of social and language skills 2. Kanner?s syndrome - This is most common type of autistic disorder. They live in their own world and have poor social interactions. They do not like any change in their routine. Individuals with this disorder get affected by loud sounds and cannot lead a normal life as they have low communication skills 3. Rett?s syndrome - Usually seen in females and is quite rare. They are mentally retarded and show muscle atrophy. The individuals show repetitive hand movements. 4. Childhood disintegrative disorder- The symptoms starts to appear in otherwise normal children between 2-4 years of age. They stop talking and interacting with people around them. Individuals start losing motor skills after the age of two 5. Asperger syndrome- Often misdiagnosed as obsessive ?Compulsive disorder or Attention ?Deficit disorder. They don?t show normal social interactions and have problems communicating. Children with Asperger syndrome show repetitive actions and exhibit poor motor skills. Some are thought have talent on which if they focus on could reach great height. Autism is known for decades, unfortunately, there are very few medications available to treat ASD. However, not all hopes are lost. In contemporary medical system (allopathic medicine) different symptom specific treatment options are offered for autistic patients. It is to be noted that these are mood altering medicines. Therefore, qualified physicians should be consulted and the medications administered under care. Ayruvedic approach: In ayurveda there are some herbal medications prescribed for autistic individuals. These are more of remedial measures than cure. Therefore, these medications are to be taken for life. As in many mood altering disorders, besides medications, management is suggested. Very interestingly, an Indian mother of an autistic son, Mrs. Soma Mukhopadhyay, developed Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) to train autistic children to lead near normal life. This has been demonstrated to be a boon for several severely autistic children. Her son Tito Mukhopadhyay is indisputably the most famous Indian with autism. With his mother?s guidance he had written many poems and authored a book titled ?Beyond the Silence: My Life, The World and Autism. Noting her revolutionary method she was brought to the United States by Cure Autism Now Foundation. Since then she had refined her techniques. Currently she is running ?Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach ? HALO? foundation (www.Halo-soma.Org). Recently, she had published a book ?Understanding autism Through Rapid Prompting Method? that details the technique developed by her.

I had a mild seizure when I was very young may be 5years old, doctor told my parents not to worry, so no medicine was taken. Later in my early teens also I had mild seizures a couple of times, we consulted some doctors and took medicine. Later when I was 16 years old, once when I had fever I attended college and in the class room I had a seizure. Then we consulted a senior specialist and since then I had no seizure in last six years. My doctor gave a combination of two different tablets initially for a couple of years and later started prescribing leviteracetam. I have been using leviteracetam for the last 5-6years now, 1500 mg dose once in the morning, every day. My family maintained strict secrecy about my problem in view of the stigma associated. However, they fear this may come in the way of my marriage prospects and worry all the time. I wish to know if it is possible to stop medication or reduce the frequency from one dose everyday to once in a week or so. Kindly help please.

If a person have fits during high temperature it is called febrile convulsions.when occurs three time needs to be treated for at least 3 years in case you were treated for 6 years without having epilepsy so gradually you can be tappered off drugs watching for fever which should be treated imediately and not allowed to go beyond a limit. you can switch over to other drug like ESLIFY 600 mg which latter on can be given only once at night. A trial should be given to decrese this drug. if you can stay without epilepsy for about 1 year without drugs then drugs can be stopped.

Hello lybrate-user, fortunately you are with positive mind, definitely you should do exercises on order to prevent further dystrophy (wasting of muscles) and to build up strength, endurance and overall functional independence. Best advice for you is hire a physiotherapist who can treat you at your home after a proper assessment. For your left leg depending upon the evaluation and current status of your condition, you may need to do quadriceps strengthening, hamstrings strengthening, gastroc-soleus strengthening, adductor & abductor strengthening, tfl and gluteus medius maximus strengthen, gemellus superior/inferior strengthening. For right hand do elbow flexor and extensor strengthening, wrist flexor extensor strengthening, finger strengthening. Hope it helps. Take care.

I have great fear to take a cup or glass of hot things like tea. Whenever I try to do this, my hand as well as whole body tremble. Before some month I was taking a plastic cup of tea. That time my hand trembled and hot tea fell on my hand. And there was some burn on my hand. From that day I feel very much fear to take a cup or glass of hot tea.

Hello Dr. I am curious to know why would a persons hand shake while holding some object or eating. Its only hand tremors. My friend is facing this problem from the time he was in std 8. Is it calcium or vitamin deficiency? Is it psychological problem - like if some one looks at him o observes him he feels hand shakes. When carrying heavy objects it shakes. Please suggest what can be done.

It can be a habit as it was there from very young age and is clear from your history that it comes when someone looks. By mind control he can reduce this.
