This is for My father of Age 75 ,weight 43 kg and height 177 cm. He is under treatment for dementia related issues as described below. We are consulting with Neurologist and he was taking the tablet Donep of 10 mg for the last one year. Now he added one more medicine since there is no improvement and stills showing more angry and aggressive behavior. The medicine name is QUETIAPINE 25 mg. One tablet night after food When am browsing in internet it is not approved to older people with dementia related issues. It may cause serious issues. Is that correct? Or shall we continue with the medicine? New prescriptions cilacar 10 morning one Telma h 40 morning one Donamem 10 night one quetiapine 25 night one Atorfit cv 10 night one 1) He is having serious memory issue 2) He is not getting words while talking 3) He is able to read, write, Identify all the friends but always angry with everyone most of the time 4) some day he is very silent and normal 5) Most of the time he is getting he want to go from home, no answer where he want go, but someday he used to go to some of his friends home. Some days to temples. May be frequently 6) Some days he will bath/ brush two or three times. If we are reminding this he will get angry and will try to go out of home As per Neurologist it is because of one silent brain attack and dementia He is a retired Mathematics teacher, and this symptoms started some 4 year back. Now some days he is very violent because of the above reason Waiting for your feedback.

Der Dileep, Sorry to hear your father, Maths teacher, has dementia. The behavioral problems are not tolerated by the family members. If you start attending the family members' group, you will understand why your father gets angry and leaves home. If the family understands his present level of memory and accepts it as such, behaviour of your father will change. If you people point out accusingly or treat him as though he does it purposely, it will worsen. Donepezil is helpful in reducing behavioural problems. None of the antipsychotics are approved in dementia because it can cause falls and medical problems become worse. You have to decide which is worse and use Quetiapine whenever necessary.

I am 27 years female. And I have migraine. Please tell the proper solution for this as I am having medicines like headset or combiflam but they giving just temporarily relief.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.

Dear lybrate-user, the problem which you have shared here is psychological in nature. When you are facing such kind of difficulties, it must be difficult for you to focus, understand and think in a clear manner. As a result, avoidance is another behavioral consequence. For anxiety, you must systematically desensitize yourself and expose to situations when you are doing signature or writing and at the same time change your cognitions/ thought patterns in a positive manner. Like if you feel people would notice me and make judgments while writing something on paper, then you may replace these thoughts with" I should concentrate more on the task at hand and ignore anxious thoughts. For this also, I would suggest you to consult a clinical psychologist who can help you overcome it and understand the problem in depth.

Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes and Symptoms!

MBBS, MS - ENT ( Gold Medalist Honors )
ENT Specialist, Gurgaon
Sleep Apnea - Know Its Causes and Symptoms!

Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder in which you experience frequent breathing pauses while sleeping. In case of some, the pauses may last for just a few seconds, while for others, it may continue for a few minutes. Sleep apnea is generally chronic in nature. There are three types of sleep apnea, namely Central, Obstructive and Complex sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea occurs if the brain fails to transmit signals to the muscles responsible for your breathing functions. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs due to relaxation of your throat muscles. Complex sleep apnea refers to a combined condition of both central and obstructive sleep apnea.

Some of the possible causes of sleep apnea are as follows: 

  1. Blockage of airway during sleep can cause sleep apnea
  2. Putting on weight can cause obstructive sleep apnea
  3. In some cases, large tonsil tissues can lead to obstructive sleep apnea in small children
  4. Intake of certain medicines like Oxycontin or MS Contin can cause central sleep apnea
  5. Male people are more prone to sleep apnea
  6. Smoking is also a potent trigger for sleep apnea
  7. At times, high blood pressure can induce sleep apnea
  8. Suffering from sinus can also lead to sleep apnea
  9. Large neck size (more than 16 inches) may cause sleep apnea

In case of some people, sleep apnea might be an inherited condition.

The most common symptoms of sleep apnea are mentioned below:

  • Sometimes, obstructive sleep apnea is accompanied by choking or snorting sounds.
  • You may encounter breathing trouble while sleeping, leading to a disruption of your sleep.
  • Maximum times, sleep apnea is accompanied by snoring.
  • Sleep apnea leads to a dry mouth, which can disturb your sleep.
  • You may feel dizzy during daytime.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

not getting menstruation could be due to breast feeding of the baby. if not you have to look for other causes. epilepsy and the medicines used for treating it are not known to cause any menstrual disturbance. if you are not breast feeding pregnancy has to be ruled out and other causes have to be looked in to.

Sir, either you may have cervical spondylitis which is impinging your nerve and you are having problem regarding your finger or you may be suffering from a condition called carpal tunnel syndrome which also gives the same symptoms as that of spondylitis. In order to differentiate if you are having pain in and around your neck along with your symptoms then it could be spondylitis. If there is problem only with your thumb and index finger ie mostly gettig numb then it could be carpal tunnel syndrome.
