For patients who are unco-operative for psychiatric medications, long acting depot injections are available which can be given under the supervision og a psychiatrist. This helps to maintain the appropriate medication levels in the body of the patient so that he or she does not relapse due to non complinace.

Are there any interactions between homeopathy medicine and benadryl. I mean if I intake homeopathy medicine for arthritis. And for insomnia I take benadryl.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, if you always take benadryl for insomnia then it is a kind of drug-dependency or drug-addiction, they may cause side-effects which would be visible later. Not to take it for your insomnia and recommend you a homoeopathic medicine for insomnia. Colds and cough are self-limiting and need minimal medication. Grandma's cures such as hot soup, steam inhalation and fresh fruits rich in vitamin c are still the most effective when treating bronchial ailments. There are two types of insomnia: primary insomnia and secondary insomnia. Primary insomnia: primary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems that are not directly associated with any other health condition or problem. Secondary insomnia: secondary insomnia means that a person is having sleep problems because of something else, such as a health condition (like asthma, depression, arthritis, cancer, or heartburn); pain; medication they are taking; or a substance they are using (like alcohol). Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others. Management: here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: keep your bedroom cool and dark put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: take schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos./ once daily at night for 1month. Insomnia.

By now he should have woken up. Something has gone wrong with the surgery or with his overall health condition. But make sure that he is not given any sedation.

You must consult your diabetologist. Numbness is caused due to uncontrolled diabetes due to neuropathy. Good control mostly reverses these symptoms. It is not possible to give medicines with examination & full assessment.

Migraine is a kind of relapsing headache. Its symptoms include - episodic unilateral or bilateral, severe and pulsating headaches, associated at times with nausea and vomiting, relieved momentarily on rest or taking medications and aggravated by precipitating factors like sleep deprivation, loud noises, continued sun exposure, allergy to some agents etc. The treatment of migraine is mainly done for relief from acute headache attacks and later treatments to prevent future relapses. Also treatment of factors which tend to cause relapses is also important. It is likely that you have migraine consult a headache specialist for treatmnet. You may contact me online for an further queries and management.

Dear Dr. I have continuous snoring and insomnia during my sleep and I feel more sedative when I wake up in the morning. Can you please guide me how to recover from this.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. Using a Neti pot, nasal decongestant, or nasal strips can also help you breathe more easily while sleeping. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. There are specially designed pillows available to help prevent snoring by making sure your neck muscles are not crimped. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

He will need Preventive medicines for migraine. Plenty of oral fluids, meals at right time, adequate sleep, avoid late nights. Dark glasses with uv protection when going out in bright sunlight. Exercise 45 min a day. May see local neurologist again.

I have been diagnosed with neurocysticercosis on Nov 23, 15 after having seizures and have been taking anti-seizure drugs since then. Thankfully, no episodes of seizure since then. I wanted to know if I can go for wisdom tooth extraction. Will I have any complication during the extraction procedure?

MD(MEDICINE), MBBS

Yes, you can under the guidance of a competent dentist. Treated neurocysticercosis is no contraindication to a tooth extraction.
