My son is a adhd kid. He has some speech delay also. What is the best way to treat him. Are there any special schools for him.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Stimulants such as methylphenidate and amphetamines are the most common type of medication used for treating adhd. Although it may seem counterintuitive to treat hyperactivity with a stimulant, these medications actually activate brain circuits that support attention and focused behavior, thus reducing hyperactivity. In addition, a few non-stimulant medications, such as atomoxetine, guanfacine, and clonidine, are also available. For many children, adhd medications reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity and improve their ability to focus, work, and learn. Medications also may improve physical coordination. However, a one-size-fits-all approach does not apply for all children with adhd. What works for one child might not work for another. One child might have side effects with a certain medication, while another child may not. Sometimes several different medications or dosages must be tried before finding one that works for a particular child. Any child taking medications must be monitored closely and carefully by caregivers and doctors. Stimulant medications come in different forms, such as a pill, capsule, liquid, or skin patch. Some medications also come in short-acting, long-acting, or extended release varieties. In each of these varieties, the active ingredient is the same, but it is released differently in the body. Long-acting or extended release forms often allow a child to take the medication just once a day before school, so he or she doesn't have to make a daily trip to the school nurse for another dose. Parents and doctors should decide together which medication is best for the child and whether the child needs medication only for school hours or for evenings and weekends, too. For more information about stimulants and other medications used for treating mental disorders, see the nimh mental health medications webpage. The food and drug administration (fda) website has the latest information on medication approvals, warnings, and patient information guides. What are the side effects of stimulant medications? the most commonly reported side effects are decreased appetite, sleep problems, anxiety, and irritability. Some children also report mild stomachaches or headaches. Most side effects are minor and disappear over time or if the dosage level is lowered. Decreased appetite. Be sure your child eats healthy meals. If this side effect does not go away, talk to your child's doctor. Also talk to the doctor if you have concerns about your child's growth or weight gain while he or she is taking this medication. Sleep problems. If a child cannot fall asleep, the doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the medication or a shorter-acting form. The doctor might also suggest giving the medication earlier in the day, or stopping the afternoon or evening dose. Adding a prescription for a low dose of a blood pressure medication called clonidine sometimes helps with sleep problems. A consistent sleep routine that includes relaxing elements like warm milk, soft music, or quiet activities in dim light, may also help. Less common side effects. A few children develop sudden, repetitive movements or sounds called tics. Changing the medication dosage may make tics go away. Some children also may have a personality change, such as appearing" flat" or without emotion. Talk with your child's doctor if you see any of these side effects. You can ask for special schools in your area.

Dear Abhishek, By itself binaural beats may not help fully. But along with Venlift 150 mg, it may help to further becoming alert. However no harm in trying it. You can try other treatment like rTMS and cognitive enhancement therapy.

Do Panic Attacks Really Come Out of the Blue

Ph. D - Psychology, Psychology

Do Panic Attacks Really Come Out of the Blue

Panic attacks can debilitate a person greatly. The panic or anxiety attacks can be extremely powerful and intense, whereby a person starts hallucinating. The level of hallucination can vary depending on the severity of the attack. Such people often hallucinate about something bad or catastrophic striking them.  They lose self composure. In extreme cases, they cut themselves off from the outside world and recoil into their safe zone (Agoraphobia).

Panic attacks, should, by no means, be confused with depression. These attacks can be essentially divided into three phases; the start phase, it then reaches the pinnacle or the zenith, before sliding down (fades away). The duration of a panic attack can vary from long to very long periods. The whole experience can leave a person depressed, traumatized and drained out (physically and emotionally). A timely medical assistance can prove to be extremely fruitful.
Panic attacks- its causative, signs and symptoms

 A panic attack, can, indeed, come out of the blue (unexpectedly). Extreme emotional turmoil or anxiety can trigger such an attack. An over excited nervous system might turn out to be the wrecker in chief, throwing life in jeopardy. A person might be unprepared to deal with such a situation. Though extremely difficult, the best thing would be to try and relax. The attack is just an extreme state of mind, an abstract feeling that can never come true. It will pass off soon. Panicking will only pile onto your agony. Identifying the associated symptoms can prove to be effective. 

Some of the important symptoms associated with pain attacks include:

  • A feeling of breathlessness, suffocation and dizziness.
  • The palms appear to be sweaty.
  • A person may complain of uneasiness or chest pain. 
  • Increased palpitations are quite common during panic attacks.
  • A person might experience severe chills or heat flushes. 
  • Twitching and trembling of the muscles are often observed during the attacks.
  • An intense fear of death or going insane grips the person completely.
  • Hands, legs, arms begin to tingle.
  • During anxiety attacks, a person loses the reasoning ability.

Few short term behavioural therapies can be of great help. Meditation, yoga and certain breathing practices can effectively ward off physical and mental fatigue.  CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a popular technique used to deal with panic attacks. This technique primarily emphasises on the present conditions and factors resulting in panic and ways to minimise or completely eliminate the attacks.

I can feel how stressed you are. I think, it is better for you to distract yourself by focussing your mind on your children and learning new skills to earn money in your home itself. A time will come for your husband realise his mistakes. And, in course of time the emotional bond between children and your husband will increase. At least, if you think you have lost your husband, your children have their father. Let s hope for the best" it is not what you have lost but what you have left that counts"

Treatment for thalassemia major often involves regular blood transfusions and folate supplements. If you receive blood transfusions, you should not take iron supplements. Doing so can cause a high amount of iron to build up in the body, which can be harmful. Persons who receive a lot of blood transfusions need a treatment called chelation therapy. This is done to remove excess iron from the body. A bone marrow transplant may help treat the disease in some patients, especially children.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all, you take 10-12 deep breaths early in morning on waking. Then try to do yoga for 10 mins. This will help to make you mind healthy and you will not forget things too. And also your blood pressure will start getting normalizing. As your age is quiet low, I would not suggest you to go for any medicinal treatment for high blood pressure. It can happen situational.

I have been married 4 months back. My husband was good in the beginning, we enjoyed a lot and we had sex regularly. He spends more time chatting with his friends and asks girl friends to send their photos (not nude) and even makes their friends as his. This was from the beginning but I noticed it recently. He hides many things from me. When I knew that he chats and questioned him He started deleting chats. He watches porn videos a lot and says that he is doing his work. He keeps a hand on me while sleeping and engages himself in chatting. He spends a lot money for his family and thinks a lot to buy many thing for me. He even drinks beer and eats non veg. He promised me that he will stop drinking. We have sex now a days only on weekends. He enjoys watching porn videos without me. We are not happy in our relation. I love him a lot and please suggest me something.

I think his true colors are just being revealed. Many of us portray a very good side of ours before marriage and for some time after too. But in time that ‘acting’ will cease and the true nature will emerge. If you are not happy with what he is doing then confront him, and you may do so openly in front of his folks or yours to make it more effective. But how much you can change him is a big question unless he himself wants to change. The reduction in sexual contact shows that he is getting his gratification from the porn and viewing other girls’ photos. If he is eating non-vegetarian and drinking beer that is a matter of choice and unless there is abuse of the substance and loss of control we cannot say that that is bad in itself. You must be more effective in dealing with him otherwise this will become the pattern of the relationship, forever. Then if he is willing you can both go for marital counseling and continue with that person until your matters are resolved. If all this does not produce results, then you must take a call, even if you love him passionately.

Eat well and sleep well. Be a strict vegetarian, drink cow's milk in night about three hours after dinner on alternate days (about thrice a week ). For sleep, Everyone knows that sleep is very important for maintaining a good physical and mental health. However, the duration of your sleep is just as important as the way in which you sleep. Your sleep position can influence your health, help in keeping your skin look young, and improve your digestive health. Furthermore, sleeping on the left side of your body can even save your life. If you are currently sleeping in another position, keep reading to find out why you should start sleeping on your left side right now. There are several sleeping positions – your front, your back, your left side, and your right side – and they all affect your health. Sleeping on the back can be particularly dangerous for people with sleep apnea or asthma, because it can cause breathing difficulties. Sleeping on the right side is likely to worsen digestion problems, whereas sleeping on the left side may improve digestive symptoms.

Dear lybrate user, I think you feel chocked. There are lot many things going on in your mind but you are unable to express it. You might be scared and probably feeling shameful about something in life. You might be angry with someone or something. You need to express your feelings which will relieve your anxiety and stress. Once you are relieved of your troublesome thoughts and feelings, you will start feeling lighter. You will start taking interest in life and may have more appetite and eventually put on more weight. If there are any problems at home, try to discuss with concerned people and try to resolve them. You may talk to your school or college counsellor. The counsellor will help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, somatization disorders take many weeks to improve. Probably in 3-6 weeks with sufficient dose. Because you are young, the psychiatrist would have started on a low dose. If you are able to tolerate it, he may increase the dose. You will improve with sufficient dose for sufficient time. Go back to the same psychiatrist. He may even change the medicine.

I am 24 years old and got married before 1 and half year about. Me and my husband were living apart after 10 days of our marriage because we both are working in different cities and we just met in 2-3 months or few days. But now we both shifted and started living together. I don't know the reason but instead of making love we both started fighting with each other. I am really not getting the reason the situation is getting worst and worst. This is my fault I got angry in each and every situation. We both love each other a lot. Please tell me the reason. Why this is happening with me. Why I am getting hyper so frequently.

It is normal to have differences in opinion" REAL MEANING OF MARRIAGE": From a spiritual perspective one should feel that their partner is something more than just my husband or my wife. A husband should feel towards his wife that this is the daughter of God - this is God’s deeply beloved daughter that has been entrusted in my care. How you treat her is how God will receive you. How you speak to her, how you act toward her, how you protect her are all important. Protection is said to be on three levels - physical, emotional and spiritual. To give that protection, to be forgiving to each other and to honor your spouse as God's property, God's gift, is how you will make spiritual progress. And a wife should feel that her partner is not just her husband but he is God’s beloved child entrusted in her care to protect, to be faithful to, and to encourage. If you see each other in this light, marriage really is yoga. Your relationship will be yoga in essence and you will make great spiritual progress.
