Dear lybrate-user, you will need a consultation from a psychiatrist and a neurologist to see exactly what the problem is. What you are saying appears to be like a neurological symptoms but considering your age, there is a strong possibility that it may have some psychiatric basis. We will have to get blood tests like hemogram, rft, lft, electrolytes, rbs, tsh and vitamin b12 levels. Ecg and mri brain will also be needed. Do not ignore this and get it properly evaluated. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I appreciate your move of smoking. When you leave any of the substance immediately after a long term use, you get withdrawal symptoms. Irritability, aggression, sleep disturbance, low mood are some of the common symptoms. These will go with time. Duration depends on the amount of nicotine you were taking. You may consult your doctor for nicotine skin patches or other nicotine replacement methods. Hope this will help. Regards, Vibha.

If I start placida plus for depression and anxiety How much time wait for result of treatment.
It takes about 2-3 weeks for complete effect and you will start to feel fine once the problem starts to get better by itself, you need to remain on medications for many months according to the advice of your psychiatrist. I hope you continue to consult your psychiatrist who prescribed the medication and be patient and persistent​ with therapy. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Hi sir, I know, every husband goes through, no matter how hard he tries to please her, some how she finds some fault in you. My wife's problem is that everything I do for her is wrong and at a wrong time. And in case if I accept my mistake and want to correct myself she will start it all over again. She will tell everything she wants but when it is my turn to speak, she says she doesn't want to hear the crap and nonsense and acts as if I don't even exist there. Suddenly she is normal and within minutes she is angry are her mood is spoiled and when you question her what happened, the answer is nothing. When I ask for a movie she will straight away say she doesn't want to go but few days she will. Complain about it that I don't take her out. I try to be romantic to make her happy she will say that please don't act as if you love me, please don't do this it looks very awkward when you do this. She complains that I don't spend time with her but when I do she says this is not the right time and also that I'm trying to force and being bossy because I talk to her when I feel like but she is not interested bcoz that is not right time and she is not in mood to talk, this happens even if I talk to her in morning, afternoon and night. Then I asked her please give me a timetable of your romantic and talking mood so I don't commit the mistake and talk to you at the right time and mood. I really don't understand how should I find in which mood she is and should I talk are be romantic to her. It doesn't end there in many other things this happens and I am always wrong and that I have screwed her life. There is a big confusion in my mind of who needs the psychiatrist is it me who does everything wrong at wrong time and mood are my wife who finds everything wrong. please advice. There are lot of other things that I want to mention but I think this is enough, if you are also happily married like me and others in this world who go through this but cannot do anything about it bcoz once again we are wrong and they are always right. God bless all the husband's in this world and save them.

I have been suggested to take arip mt 5 mg tablets. After diagnosis. Can you please suggest what is the main reason for this medication?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Arip Mt 5 MG Tablet is an antipsychotic drug used for the treatment of Schizophrenia, and other mood disorders. Take this medicine at the same time regularly. This medicine can only control the symptoms but cannot cure the disease.Most common side effects are nausea, vomiting and constipation. This drug reduces weight in some patients, unlike other common antipsychotics such as Olanzapine. It is a plus point in some patients who are obese. Compared to some other antipsychotics this medication is relatively safe for heart.

I came across a article of a news paper by a doctor about cyclothymia and found the same symptoms I am going through. Please guide.

I came across a article of a news paper by a doctor about cyclothymia and found the same symptoms I am going through....
Cyclothymia as you now know , is a condition where a person has fluctuating highs and lows. If we were to be critical about ourselves , most of us would fall in this category. The issue is not so much about labeling ourselves, as it is to make the best of what we have. When you are 'high' it means you are energetic, alert and most productive. Utilize this phase to finish things that you always wanted to do - plan, execute and feel nice about your accomplishment. 'Lows' means your energy level is low, don't particularly feel like doing anything. Enjoy this state, without guilt, relax and use this period to rejuvenate. No one can perform at the same level everyday - every day is a different day. Study your energy patterns and plan accordingly.

You must both seek a counselor's help. If that person feels that he needs psychiatric help, then he can be directed to seek such help. If you suggested it, he may rebel and act violent towards you. If he refuses to behave himself, you can take immediate action even through the police, for domestic violence. If you do not act and always look afraid, he will only get worse and lose all control. He needs help and someone has to take some effective measures.
