I am suffering from from epilepsy since from childhood. Medicine taken levipil 500 mg twice daily and Lonazep 2 once at night. Any permanent solution can you advice. Please let me know. Thank you.
I'm 22 and I have borderline personality disorder. I was on serta and etizolam which made me lose a lot of weight and my anxiety kept increasing. And then I was on quetiapine which made the anger worse. And then on olanzapine which made me gain a lot of weight. Then on venla and risperidone I got a lot of acne. I'm tired of trying out medicines and their side effects. I just want to feel better asap. I have been very depressed lately. I'm a lot more depressed than I am manic. Therapy hasn't helped much so far. I stopped taking the medicines last month because of the side effects. And I have noticed that when I was on venla regularly, day by day I got better and then suddenly manic. After every manic episode I get very depressed. I don't know what to do. Should I try more medicines or should I stop them completely? Does online therapy help?
Hello sir, I am studying in the final year of B.E. I am currently having depression. It will be okay at daytime. But after like 9 pm at night, the situation gets worst. I am doing kegel exercises and still have ED. I don't have any bad habits such as smoking cigarettes, drinking etc. I am also a vegetarian who eats only eggs or rare occasions. I have a beer belly that makes me self conscious all the time. Last year I received 'Mr. handsome award at my college festival and I can't see myself handsome even today. My hair is thinning and having double chin. I don't know what to do. I am lost. My friends have been placed in campus interviews with decent annual packages and I haven't got any job. I am facing defeats everywhere.
I am asking this question about my mom. She is 45+ now. Since 1 year she has been suffering from short temper. She becomes angry with very little reasons and also for very old matters. She quarrels and bleams others. After almost 1 day when she becomes normal, the anger gone and then she realise her mistakes and also apologies. I am asking what is the solution of that problem? please help me.
With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.
Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.
Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.
Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:
- Being confused about places, people, and times
- Inability to find the right words during conversations
- Regular objects are misplaced
- Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
- Mood swings
- Personality changes
- Inability to organise thoughts
- Not able to make the right decisions
- Repetitive talks and actions
- Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
- Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
- Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
- Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)
Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and poor lifestyle choices.
Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.
Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.
Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
