Why anxiety is firstly treated by anti depression medicines instead of available anxiety medicines?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Why anxiety is firstly treated by anti depression medicines instead of available anxiety medicines?
Dear lybrate-user. It is not necessary. Psychiatrists approach the patient with different perspective. Some prefer anti-depressive drugs and some anxiety drugs. In fact there are many drugs which can be used for both. Anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Sir my memory is not sharp I have problem to remembered something for a long time and not easily learn anything what should I do please tell me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Usually stress is the cause for his development. If you meet with a counselor you will be able to sort that out and enjoy good sharp memory.In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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 sugar and junk food.

For at around 4 years I was taking antipsychotic medicine sulpitac 50. Now I stop taking that medicine. Now I am taking homeopathic medicine acconitum nappellous 30. Now I am feeling good. But sometime I feel anxious although I can manage that. I am so much concern about my behavior. Nowadays I am feeling very harder to talk with people with eye contact. And even I can not talk with eye contact with children also. I think my eyes are to big to them while I talk with someone with eye contact. I feel very sad for this. I know it is social phobia. How can I solve this problem? I am also doing some yoga.

Dear Lybrate user. It's good that you are concern about your mental health and actively taking concrete step to improve that. I think you should also start taking some one on one sessions with Clinical Psychologist. There are therapies which could help you. Other then taking one on one sessions. As you said you do yoga. Try doing Yoga with some family member or any friend. Try to do first with one person and slowly incorporate group of 2-3 people. This will help you giving exposure to interacting with people. You can practice talking in front of the mirror. Start with some small conversation like introducing yourself. While standing in front of mirror try make eye contact with your reflection. Another thing you can try is joining some hobby club. Choose something which is your cup of tea. May b singing or dance or theatre. You can join reading club. All these wil help you. Take small step, break your tasks and soon you will overcome your anxiety. Take Care.

Have a open discussion before start thinking him/her unfaithful.

I feel very depressed and over obsessive about making things happen my way. Like a compulsion and impatience.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what is the fear that is causing these difficulties. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern without solutions to them. This is a sign of insecurity that may stem from your past. You may not be sure of yourself in terms of decision making due to troubling conflict and confusion. This increases the fear. Also the control issue that you display by wanting things to happen only your way, is indicative of lack of trust coming from fear. In time you will lose patience and escalate anger over this fear and become violent. Then everyone will relate to your anger not realizing that your real feeling is in fact fear. Meet with a counselor and take help to deal with your fear. Exercise is excellent to build your physical constitution to cope with fear better.

I am a very shy person, feel very nervous while facing public. My confidence is very low. Is it possible to overcome ...
Definitely possible. First and foremost will be to practice in a familiar surrounding . Go to gyms and other activity places to interact with people. Try to practice in front of mirror. Practice relaxation exercises and yoga which can help. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid too much caffeine and junk food. Last and most importantly believe in yourself and face it. Usually we feel nervous because we think what others think about us. Erase such thoughts and march ahead in life. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Hello, Over the past couple of year I have developed high level of anxiety mostly when it comes to my physical appearance and sometimes when I think about my future. I am currently working in a service based company in Bangalore and my salary is below the average as compared to national average (around 20K per month). There are other things like when I came to Bangalore I literally saw number to girls having multiple sex relationship and they don't feel guilty about it. Now that's my opinion, I may be wrong but again I don't like such women's. That being said sometime I feel bad for people who are married to women's like that. Is it normal that I having such thoughts or it's inappropriate. One more thing I would like to say is that I believe I have as much potential as others do but every-time I fail to recognise it. I think I have failed my parents and they are not happy with me. And last but not the least PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. I have been told or say reminded by a lot of people that I am UGLYand even I think that is true because honestly no girls give a damn about me, every-one simply ignores me. Please I need help. I can't live with these thoughts any longer. Regards,

You need to grow up. Any adult having consensual sexual relationship with another adult is not wrong, since women are more expressive about their sexual needs, being in a cosmopolitan city like Bangalore, you need to accept these facts and should not judge them morally. Regards to your potential, since you r very confident, good, use that as a ladder and work hard in a proper way and start earning more. Do not be fixed with a company, if you r doing well, send feelers to other companies and if they pay more jump, this is how you can come up. Also you r parents may not judge you bad, for all or most their kids are their own and remove the negative thoughts. Regarding your appearance, even ugliest people r becoming superstars in movies, so atitude matters, carry and dress in a manner so people adore and respect u. All the best.

If you lose something then it means you lost it and it was not yours. And if something is with you then it is yours. Why feel depressed just think that if god have taken your mobile from you then he will give you a better option. What it will no body knows. But just think every thing will be fine. Keep yourself calm by doing some breathing exercise.

Dear lybrate-user, depression and anxiety disorder treatment consists of pharmacotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, lifestyle changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Alone medicines cannot cure your mental disorders. I suggest you to practice the other methods. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Hi sir,
I sleep too much, think too much and put my self in bad mood. All resulting in memory loss.
You will need a evaluation for a depressive/ anxiety spectrum disorder. If this occurs once in a while it is okay, but if it is a regular feature an evaluation will be needed. I think there is no harm in getting a consultation because there is much to lose if it turns out that you do have a problem. So, please do not delay and meet an expert in your town. Take care!
