Tensaril is for hypertension, you have to continue it. Depranil is for reducing anxiety and inducing sleep. It is habit forming. Discontinuing suddenly may cause insomnia and anxiety. You may try to reduce the dose gradually over o period of three months.

I smoke regularly. I have noticed nicotine marks being formed on my teeth. How to remove them easily?

I smoke regularly. I have noticed nicotine marks being formed on my teeth. How to remove them easily?
The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.

Dear Hamjad, You need to be assessed psychologically for diagnosis. You should consult a psychologist / psychiatrist for diagnosis. Alternatively you may consult a psychologist online too. Please do not try to diagnose self and ask for medicines. That may be dangerous. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, please try to understand what you want/need. If you are liking it, but want him to be softer, speak to him about it. If you are not liking it you can convey that to your brother. If you feel victimised or if you are unable to oppose his moves, please contact a counsellor at the earliest, who will help you.

Alzheimer's Disease - Can Surgery Help You Treat It?

Alzheimer's Disease - Can Surgery Help You Treat It?

In recent times, the advancement of medical science has substantially contributed in comprehending the Alzheimer’s disease. Unfortunately, the number of individuals suffering from the disease is expected to rise in the next ten years which pose a threat to the allocation of health care resources and public health. Alzheimer’s disease is thought to be a complex disease which influences a person’s behavior as well as cognition through numerous mechanisms.

Can surgery be deemed as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease?
The surgery is a multicenter clinical trial which is making a new direction in clinical research. It is devised to halt or slow down the problems caused by the disease which gradually erases a lifetime of memories in elderly patients. Though there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, it has been found that low-voltage electric charges delivered right at the brain. Only the symptomatic therapies for Alzheimer’s disease are provided which do not have any effect on the evolution of the disease. The standard medical treatments for Alzheimer’s disease include cholinesterase inhibitors along with a partial N-methyl D-aspartate antagonist. In most cases of mild to moderate symptoms of this disease, a combination of treatments is used according to the clinical history, age and condition of the patient.

Mental activity supporting cognition
Many patients having normal cognition or mild impairment have a fear that they may develop AD. Many experts are of the opinion that mentally challenging activities including brain teasers and crossword puzzles can be helpful in reducing the risks in such patients. Clinical trials are under the way for determining whether or not these types of activities have any substantial effect on halting the progression of AD.

Treating AD in its moderate to the severe stage
Numerous studies have shown that blockade of NMDA receptors by memantine can be used safely in combination with ChEls. This combination has been shown to delay the institutionalization in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Treating secondary symptoms
A variety of behavioral as well as pharmacologic interventions can help in overcoming the clinical manifestations of the disease. These include anxiety, psychotic behavior, depression and agitation among others. The effectiveness of this disease can range from modest to excellent. No particular agent or dose of it can be unanimously accepted to be the sole treatment option for the wide range of clinical issues. Moreover, in the recent time, the FDA has not accepted any psychotropic agent for treating AD.

Along with these treatment options, there are behavioral interventions that can range from patient-centred approaches to caregiver training for helping manage the cognitive and behavioral manifestations of Alzheimer’s disease. Last but not the least, it is very crucial to point out the significance of treatment in the early stages of AD in order to cure it better. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sir/mam, I always try to act positively to anyone. Like give them extra space. But often they try to bully me and also use harsh words. I can argue with them but I don't like the situation it leads to. How am I supposed to tackle that kind of situation?

You are someone who wants to please others and stay in their good books all the time and at all expenses. This might win you some true friends but it can also find you some people who will misuse your sweetness and bully you. You need to strengthen your boundaries with such people and tackle them in a different manner. Counselling helps you to change your strategy based on who you are facing so that you are in a win win situation or at least be able to protect yourself from such people.

If all this is leading to a life-threatening situation, you can both inform your parents that the choice they have left you with is that you will be dead if not allowed to marry and alive if allowed. Let them know the seriousness of the situation. In the meantime do not do anything silly: life is extremely precious and nobody is worth dying for. So think logically that even if they still do not agree, it is not the end of the world. If you two truly love each other, you can both refuse the proposals brought by your parents until you are allowed to marry. But both must be on the same page.
