Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I'm under antidepressants namely (fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Venlafaxine and clomipramine). Clomipramine is the latest addition to this combination of SSRI and SNRI. Initially when started clomipramine at 25 mg and 50 mg, I felt better for around 2-3 days after which my MDD and OCD went back to the bottom. Doctor increase it to 75 mg, again felt better for 2-3 days before it got worse. The same thing happened when the dosage was increased to 100 mg. Now my doctor told me to make it 150 mg. I'm confused about it. I need clarity with regard to my condition of clinical Depression and why it isn't working properly.

Dear lybrate-user, MDD and OCD are chronic disorders needing long term treatment. Just taking a SSRI or SNRI may not improve fully. You need to do ERP (exposure and response prevention) therapy also in addition. Clomipramine needs to be escalated to 300-400 mg/day if you can tolerate the side effects. You doctor is doing that slowly so that your get used to side effects. She/he is also using other antidepressants, my be in low dose to increase your tolerance. Initial feeling better will be there because of clomipramine's dual action. That does not mean that the improvement will last. Please follow the dose advised by your doctor. If you have some concerns please talk to her/him about it.

How increase my memory because some time I forget many things and I relies some time after.

BHMS

Hi, Increase the intake of healthy, nutritious food, avoid having junk, fried, fatty food. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions and are related to psychological health rather than physical. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user Please contact your psychiatrist if the medication is not working. You can discus your difficulties and accordingly the dose can be adjusted or the medicine can be changed. Along with the medication, you will benefit from psychological therapy and lifestyle modification like regular exercise and relaxation techniques. Hope this helps.

I am having huge cough since a month. I continuously cough a lot. Also I'm a heavy smoker. Please suggest what should be done?

Pulmonologist, Jaipur
Having cough for a month; he needs a check up from the local tb clinic for sputum examination for tb bacilli and other tests. Pl. Be fast and take him to the nearest govt. Tb clinic. Not necessarily he will have tuberculosis but the approach is a necessity. Till then ask him to use handkerchief when ever he coughs for preventing spread of disease in his nears and dears till he is cleared ok from the tb clinic/hospital. Now for you ; second hand smoking is a big cause of respiratory diseases in family inmates and lung cancer is associated with 80% smokers. It has little treatment once it develops. Besides this similar is with copd. See how important it is to give up smoking for you. So quit smoking today. A qualified chest physician in your area will help you to quit smoking after assessing you properly. With a strong will I know lot people just quit smoking in the first effort. God bless you.
