I have recently learnt about the demerits of Oleanz RT 20, which is being given to one of my relationship, who is under treatment for last 9-10 months after having diagnosed for Schizophrenia. Now, I seek your kind advice on the following lines; 01. Will the treatment continue life long? 02. Could the dozes be gradually reduced e.g.from 20 mg to 15 to 10 to 5 & then stopped. 03. Can a person fully recover from his past ailment of Schizophrenia? 04. Are there any alternative for Oleanz, which is less harmful in the long-term?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Oleanz is an excellent drug for acute/ immediate management of schizophrenia. Whether the treatment is going to be short lived or life long cannot be answered now, it depends on various factors and patient response. Yes the dose can be gradually brought down if the patient improves and maintains well. Total recovery in Schizophrenia rests on nearly 40-50 prognostic factors. There are alternatives to oleanz.

I presently smoke about over a pack of cigarettes per day. Work odd hours 7 pm to 4 PM. I know its affecting my health. Need to know if there are medicines that can help quit smoking. If yes are there any known side effects.

Dear, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

Dear lybrate-user. This is a psychological problem and is called identity crisis. There is no use doing such a surgery. You need natural hormones so that you can become a boy. Not surgery. Therefore, identify yourself as a girl and you will enjoy. Take care.

I have some psycholigal problem. As I am suffering from a recent breakup. So there is a big anger and restlessness.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not have a psychological problem but an emotional one: you are very angry and probably because you feel let down or taken advantage of. This sounds like a clear case of being let down by your boyfriend and therefore the restlessness. Perhaps at 35 it is likely more difficult and you may have been in this relationship for some time too. Look back into why this breakup took place and identify how much you have been the cause or taken things for granted. Then work on that for some time with a counselor and resolve it for good. You are still young and the possibilities are immense. But first get over this relationship before getting into another. Sometimes these things happen for the best. Suppose this had happened after marriage that could have been worse! Trust that there is a divine purpose and things will look up in time. Get quickly back into circulation and normalize your socialize life by catching up with old friends whom you might have neglected. Get involved with social activities and have a good time. You are now free and the whole world beckons. Do not brood and let it get the better of you. Talk to someone, including a counselor, and bring out all your feelings. Get rid of all reminders of this friend; be they gifts, photos, and avoid the favorite haunts, activities and people. In about six months, max, you will be out of this condition and ready to launch a new beginning. But in all this you must have learned a lesson, otherwise you will tend to repeat them without your knowledge. A counselor will guide you on that path. Become active, exercise regularly, talk about your feelings to clear it off of you. Otherwise you could land up with a depression. That can happen if you turn your anger inwards.

At your age of 60 years you need to take stock of your abilities. You are no more young or capable of learning new things fast. Talk to other persons of your age and join some group of elders and talk about your gradually failing capacities. At the same time retain whatever you still have. Try and maintain active life style with your abilities. If you develop anxiety while learning new things, go slowly step by step and take the help from your children or preferably from your grandchildren.

Forgetfullness and decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist in person for effective treatment. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, rehearse all these will improve your memory and concentration.

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your question. Once in a while, these kinds of symptoms may be seen in normal people for a few days, particularly of there is a disturbing event. But if this is continuing for long, it could be a sign of depression. In order to clarify things, I think few blood tests as well as physical evaluation will be needed. Please get a thyroid profile, complete hemogram, vitamin B12 and vitamin D levels done. It may be a good idea to see a mental health expert along with these reports. In any case, it seems that the problem can be easily treated and there is nothing really to be worried about. Get some physical exercise going and make sure to eat healthy and on time, drink lot of water and sleep properly. Yoga and meditation can be of additional help. Take care!

I lost my friend last month and since feel depressed and prefer keeping myself. Pls help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

Make it a point to bring your mind from distractions to study and work. If you control your mind, mind becomes your friend, but if you allow your mind to wander or be distracted, then mind becomes your enemy.

I have smoking habit. I smoke 3 to 4 cigarettes daily. Will I get any problem if I run daily?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will only experience a problem while running because of your smoking as compared to a non-smoker. But exercise is welcome anytime and with any condition because it is the most holistic medicine. However, smoking is bad for everyone whether they exercise or not. If you smoke and exercise your stamina will not be that good. Over a period of time it can only get worse. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke will reduce the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and you will tend to get exhausted, easily. Besides, there are more than 4000 thousand chemical substances in tobacco smoke and most of them are harmful. My advice is to quit smoking immediately and your exercise will stand to benefit you tremendously.

I want to know why some people are born brave while some are born fearful, Why this happens or it is a conditioning process. I am coward and I want to be very brave means bravest of all but I found it impossible to be brave. So can I become brave if I am coward So I read books on mind and it said it depends on structure of mind So how does structure of mind forms and under whose control it is I get scared easily from childhood while my other friend is brave from birth itself. Is it genetic or conditioning or any other process. How come cowards and bravest people are formed Indirectly how come our nature forms and can it be changed (I am coward or fearful nature person but I want to be brave like discovery people but I fail to become it and I get sad Can I change my nature I.

Hi there ~ I appreciate your question. The answer to your first question as to why some are brave and why some aren't is due to the fact that they are raised differently and they have different life experiences that make their brains react the way they do when faced with a certain situation. I believe that it is therefore a conditioning process. Like I have mentioned before, your friends were not brave by birth itself, and so you can also be brave similar to them but not same as them. Your bravery may be in different aspects compared to them. However you are brave too and you should hone the kind of bravery that comes naturally to you. Although genetics (nature) plays a part in anxiety, upbringing and life experiences (nurture) also play a large role in anxiety formation. I recommend that you visit with a psychologist to get any other questions answered that you are not able to express in the written format in this forum. However I also strongly suggest that you visit with a neuropsychiatrist to get yourself evaluated for any generalized anxiety disorder and thus get help for the same by the use of appropriate medications. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

How can I concentrate on my study? Whenever I go for study my mind diverts another things. Pls help.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
You need to do meditation and fulfill your needs first before sitting for studies. If you just sit for your studies as a burden you will never be able to concentrate. First decide and place your motive aim then look forward for it. However you can take biochemic tablets kali phos 6x once daily for 2 weeks and revert back.

My question is when I AM IN Period time SO I AM VERY anger & HIT FAMILY MEMBER & throw it all & my problem is last 15 year SO any solution ya tablets.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You seem to be going through hormonal imbalance due to which anger is more. Firstly, please see a gynaecologist for a check up and then meet a counsellor for anger management because I sense that you are having some stress and tension in your life which you are trying to manage by showing your anger. This might solve the problem initially or put it away for some time but in the longer run, you are damaging your own self esteem and close relationships. You will benefit from learning more amicableways of talking and putting across your points so that you don hurt other members. Counting upto 10 before talking generally helps to contain anger. Thinking about whether is it with fighting and spoiling my mood will help yu decide how important this matter to you is. Going away from the situation, cooling down by deep breathing and going through your reasons for getting angry. Before periods, please reduce junk food to the minimum. Exercise everyday so that you are feeling good about yourself and burnt off excess energy.
