My brother is addicted of smoking and drinking. I want him to quit these addiction. What should I do know? What are the medicine that can help him to come out? Please provide me the medicine that I can give him by mixing into the food and serve to him. I want that he doesn't come to know about this as he will not take medicine. So provide me the answers accordingly.

No one will give you those medicines because it has to be carefully monitored and the person needs to know about what he is consuming, especially antabuse for the alcoholism problem. The medicine for the cigarette smoking is also given only by prescription from a doctor who has to examine him. If you want to help him otherwise these are the things you can do: Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

My mother is suffering from schizophrenia for a long time (more than 15 yrs). initially she started taking medicine but after 1 years she stopped taking medicine. Now she is 61 years old and I have started treatment again since nov 2016. Now she is well enough but still she have some illusions which are strong. My question is - it is possible she will be cured and live like before.

YES IT IS POSSIBLE. STRONGLY RECOMMEND TREATMENT FROM NEAREST PATANJALI CHIKITSALAYA. FURTHER, HELP HER TO YOU PRACTICE ALL THAT IS TAUGHT DAILY ON ASTHA CHANNEL 5.00 TO 7.30 AM. VERY VERY EFFECTIVE- ESP ANULOM-VILOM AND BRAMRI AND UDGIT. YOU WILL GET MIRACULOUS RESULTS FOR FREE AND WITHOUT ADVERSE EFFECTS OF ALLOPATHIC MEDICINES AND WILL GAIN GOOD PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH, INCREASE IN YOUR STAMINA, GOOD CONCENTRATION, IMPROVED MEMORY, ETC. IT IS EXCELLENT TO DRIVE DEPRESSION , NEGATIVE THINKING OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM. NOT NECESSARY, YOU HAVE TO BE PRESENT IN FRONT OF YOUR TV AT 5 AM. BEGIN BY SWITCHING ON YOUR TV JUST WHATEVER TIME YOU GET UP AND START PRACTICING AS BEING TAUGHT. GRADUALLY WHEN YOU REGULATE YOUR SLEEPING TIME, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET UP NEXT MORNING AT 5 AND WILL BE ABLE TO DO COMPLETE WORKOUT. THE TIME YOU SPEND HERE WILL ACTUALLY BE AN INVESTMENT THAT WILL REMOVE TENSION, STRESS, ETC. LEADING TO INCREASED POSITIVITY. MEDICINE+ PRANAYAM=CURE

I feel nerve tightness in temporal nerves, jaws and around the head I had these symptoms since 2010 when I had depression.in 2010 it got cured after taking medicines but in 2011 it again started.in 2012 I again took antidepressants for two months then these symptoms were gone for 4 months but again started. I then after six months went to psychiatrist n took medicine like dimip/depsol 75, gabapin NT, valpipchrono500.i took them for one year but did not get much relief. I then changed the doctor n he added one medicine lamitor OD. I immediately felt better. and for one year I was ok. But then it seemed that those medicines stopped working on me. I then recently took Ayurveda medicine. I felt excellent for last 5 months. But now again these medicines stopped working. Due to this nerve tightness I become depressed and I have lot of dreams so do not have sound sleep. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate-user, recurrent depressive disorder is recurrent as the name suggests. Your history also suggests the same. It comes on its own and goes away like a passing cloud on its own. Only during the depressive phase you need antidepressants allopathic or ayurvedic. They are mainly to endure the depression and to prevent suicide. It has not much of preventive value for future episodes of depression. To prevent every year depressive episode, your psychiatrist has prescribed valip chono and later lamitor od. These preventive drugs have to be taken for many years. And also they have to be taken during your normal phase also. The dose will be adjusted according to the benefit - whether every year attack has reduced, whether the severity is less, whether you spend many months in normal mood. For all these things please maintain a mood chart daily for years. Take the mood chart to psychiatrist and discuss with him/her. Nerve tightness is one of the symptoms of depression rather than cause for depression. No sound sleep also is one of the symptoms.

In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time? if too much depressed some medicines will help for a short time.
