Cocaine Detoxification

Medical Detoxification is a process that systematically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and stopping them can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to treat the immediate bodily effects of stopping drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.

While at the present time, no proven pharmacologic therapy for cocaine addiction exists, several kinds of medications have been used in the detoxification of cocaine. Withdrawal from chronic cocaine use produces anxiety, depression and intense cravings for the drug. Several types of medications address these issues in different ways.

Antidepressant drugs such as desipramine or a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine have been used to reduce cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Benzodiazepines, tranquilizers such as Diazepam, have been used to reverse anxiety induced by cocaine withdrawal. Amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson's Disease, may be an effective treatment for cocaine-dependent patients with severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms and may reduce cocaine craving. Bromocriptine, a drug that works on the brain's dopamine system, has been used to decrease the craving for cocaine during detoxification and to reduce mood disturbance.

Propanolol, a beta-blocker drug used to treat high blood pressure, may be useful for severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms, as it slows down the effects of adrenaline, thereby calming the body's "fight or flight" response to stressful situations. This type of drug has been used to treat general anxiety and anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. Propranolol's lessening of symptoms such as palpitations and sweating has helped reduce cocaine craving. Its use, however, is not risk free in patients who have taken cocaine and can be associated with decreased blood flow to the heart and other changes that predispose patients to arrhythmia and a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Delayed toxic effects are possible. Any use of beta-blockers in this setting requires careful monitoring and caution

Dear lybrate-user. Summer heat always draws more water from your body. This water loss and general tiredness is the reason for your laziness. Drinking a lot of water, fruit juices etc will help. Take care.

I lost somebody last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time please help me.
Sorry to hear of your personal loss. But it is high time you come out of it. Grief is normal but continued grief is very harmful and requires treatment. If you see a psychologist regularly, you may feel much better and gain control over negativity. GENERALLY SPEAKING, BEFORE STARTING MEDICINES FROM A PSYCHIATRIST, IT IS ADVISABLE TO GET PSYCHO-DIAGNOSTIC TESTING DONE TO DETERMINE WHAT IS THE NATURE OF SYMPTOMS- IS IT PSYCHOLOGICAL –REQUIRING COUNSELLING/PSYCHOTHERAPY FROM A PSYCHOLOGIST OR DOES THE SYMPTOM REQUIRE MEDICINES FROM A PSYCHIATRIST. HOWEVER, WHEN SYMPTOMS ARE NO LONGER NORMAL OR TOUCHING UPON INSANITY, SEE A PSYCHIATRIST IMMEDIATELY. TREATMENT STARTED EARLIER WILL CONTROL THE PROBLEM VERY FAST. GET PROPER DIAGNOSIS FIRST FOLLOWED BY RIGHT TREATMENT. PLEASE GET DIAGNOSIS CONFIRMED FIRST THEN TAKE MEDICINES AS ADVISED. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT PROBLEM IS PSYCHOLOGICAL-THEN IT WILL NEVER BE CURED BY MEDICINES. YOU WILL NEED PSYCHOTHERAPY. YOU CAN BEGIN BY ONLINE CONSULTATION WITH DOCTOR OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME/OFFICE. YOU CAN TALK ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM IN A TOTALLY CONFIDENTIAL MANNER AND GET TO KNOW THE DOCTOR WITH WHOM YOU ARE LIKELY TO INTERACT ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR TREATMENT.

Use the statement 'I don't' as opposed to 'I can't' A recent study revealed that it is more psychologically empowering to believe and state that YOU DONT do something as opposed to believing and stating that YOU CANT do said thing / consume said meal.

Bipolar disorder is an episodic illness. There may be episodes of depression or episodes of mania, when they are very active, talk a lot, loud and fast. They may be wanting to buy dresses and jewelry and may want to spend lot of money. They may be very religious, and become irritable, argumentative, and that they are always right. Both the phases of illness depression and mania are distressing to the family. With the mood stabilizing drugs, their moods will be stabilized. They need to take drugs continuously under the supervision of a psychiatrist. While taking drugs, these episodes of mania and depression can be prevented. Sometimes even while on drugs may develop mood disturbances. These mood disturbances are milder and can be controlled faster. You need not worry too much about her are or about the children. As time passes, these episodes of mood disturbance also becomes less and less.

You may be an introvert. This is a problem of fearing people for what they think about you. Yes, people will often judge you but that is not the final word. When we try to read other people’s mind we will always think that they know the worst things about you, that your flaws are easily visible, and then you feel self-conscious and guilt. This is all far from the truth. People do not know you, even if they are married to you for many years!!! In fact, you do not know yourself for many years and may go to your grave with a minimum understanding of yourself. So, face people with confidence, knowing that they are the least knowledgeable about you. Sometimes, your family may not have socialized much and that can also give you a disadvantage about mixing and meeting people. This can be unlearned and you can make a new beginning and easily become a social butterfly. Many people have hesitations about social situations and are in the same boat: you have a lot of company. The bottom line is that you have fear: deal with your fear and people will seem different, and not so threatening. The ability to socialize is a natural ability in all of us. If it was not stimulated early in your life, now is not too late. We are all gregarious by nature, and need each other, to the extent that we are all interdependent. This usually has to do with your self-esteem or how you feel the others rate you. It is indicative that your own assessment of yourself is poor or is comparatively inadequate. Feeling inadequate is just that: it is a feeling, it is not necessarily true. Do some personality development work with a counselor, or attend these classes to shape your persona and improve your image and esteem. This will go a long way to get out of this quandary you find yourself in. And do not live by the opinion of others too much, unless there is a genuine concern about yourself. This way you may lose your identity. I will not be surprised, if that is an issue too. We are born because of a relationship. We develop because of one too. Finally, we are dependent in life and succeed in life depending on our ability to relate well and comfortably with other people. So relating to people is a very important aspect of our personality. You may not be a people-person and will therefore fear the acceptance or not of others. This fear is quite often unfounded. You should also go for counseling to identify what in your upbringing may have contributed to this situation. That can then be worked out and resolved. Do attend a gym to work out a good body for good self-image. If you need public speaking skills, attend the Toastmasters Club. Sometimes the fear will cripple your ability to hold a conversation. In that case, you could do a conversation development course and improve the art. The main thing is to help you get over the fear, which as mentioned earlier may be unfounded. But if you deal with that fear, you could quite easily come out of this and become an extraordinarily successful individual in all spheres in life. I recommend that you meet people by attending conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings, and social clubs. In time this anxiety will dissipate and disappear, completely.

It is a natural phenomena to experience results anxiety. First it is important to identify the real reason of stress. The real reason often is different. Second you need to think rationally about its validity. Remember emotions are always valid but reasons are not. Keeping your self busy will be helpful in freeing your self from the nagging unwanted thought. As the saying goes" keeping busy got me better" keep a second line of action ready towards your career plan. A healthy schedule that includes exercise wld be helpful.

I have obsessive compulsive disorder who will treat it better psychiatrist or psychologist?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Psychiatrist. It is like asking who will treat fracture better Orthopedician or physiotherapist, one is a medical doctor the other aids in therapy. Get diagnosed and treated by a psychiatrist, if behavioural therapy is needed he will refer you to a clinical psychologist. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

I have short term memory loss problems during talk with every one. What can I do? Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.
