Hi my husband is 36 yrs old and he is suffering from schizophrenia from aug 2013. I want the details for this disease is it curable or not? how should we treat a person?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hello, welcome to lybrate, I can understand your plight, would like to help you with this. Schizophrenia is a psychotic spectrum disorder characterised by paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, loss of insight, conceptual disorganisation, disorganised speech, impaired judgement, cognitive impairment and negative symptoms can also be present. Its usually occurs in middle ages, more common in males than in females. Pt usually develops unusual beliefs like he's being watched, followed, being plotted against, being discussed by others. At times bizarre behaviours and thought content could also be found. It is a complex syndrome which affects perception, thought, judgement, insight, cognition, motor and behavioural aspects of an individual. If left untreated, chances of spontaneous remissions are less, would gradually worsen. It is a treatable condition, treatment predominantly involves antipsychotic drugs such as haloperidol, risperidone, olanzapine, clozapine etc. Some rare cases also require mect as well. Besides this psycho-social interventions are also required to improve functioning of the individual. If you want to know more details, and want to seek an opinion regarding treatment, you can consult me in private

Dear Lybrate User, Why did you stop taking the Depression medication. The Psychiatric medication isn't allowed to stop or start suddenly. It gives brain shock waves which are harmful. These medication can only be reduced very gradually over a period of time. please continue your medication and see your doctor when he comes. You can also contact Psychologist along with medicine to reveal the cause of depression and tackle it. Divine Blessings.

Sir when I am getting angry my body is vibrating. I am over reacted. And I feel that if somebody hit me I can not able to beat him. What is the reason. Can I overcome from this by doing meditation.

Ya meditation will surely help you. But Hijamah (cupping therapy) will be perfect treatment plan for u. You have problem related to heart which rarely detectable through test. Soon consult a qualified Hijamah therapist.

I have a bad habit ,I take khaini(tobacco) in every day in any time. I want to leave it.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Khaini addiction comes under SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ADDICTION. Deaddiction treatment is best suited for such addictions. Medically assisted drug detoxification or alcohol detoxification alone is ineffective as a treatment for addiction. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends detoxification followed by both medication (where applicable) and behavioral therapy, followed by relapse prevention.

Hey doc, I am a very cheerful person on the outside or I should say that I pretend to be happy in front of my family and friends but somewhere inside I am really disturbed. I feel really insecure in relationships. I am afraid of losing people whom i love. Therefore I don't express much about my feelings to them. I don't want to lose someone I love and thus that keeps me away from them. I am seeking your help and would be grateful if you revert to the same .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There are two harmful things you are doing that have no reasonable basis to be taken as facts: one, with the fear of losing them, you are not expressing your feelings; and secondly, you are afraid of their loss for no apparent reason. Now expressing feelings, you may be surprised actually brings people closer, and improves intimacy. It is not the feeling per se that is the problem but it is the way we express them ? you just have to be appropriate in the expression. The other fact is that people will not leave without a reason! What reason do you have that will make people abandon you just like that? Perhaps you think that you are not good enough for them to want to stay with you for long. Depending on how long you have lived with them, they would have already left you, if there was any concern about this. Talk to them about this and see what they have to say. I am absolutely sure that they will be shocked that you are entertaining such false thoughts. They may then give you sureties and loving assurance about how much they love you and that they will never ever do such a thing. Then you owe me a treat, and I so look forward to that.

Madam, I do understand what's have with you. But remember 3 things- 1. Its a past 2. Can you do anything with the past 3. What to do now isn't it? so, focus on point no. 3 1. To forget these things easily, not possible but you can certainly forgive your hubby 2. Whatever happened, treat it as movie you observed in the theatre and treat it just as a story. 3. Start living as if our married just now. This change in focus will give you great relief. Good luck.

Hello Lybrate user Changing lifestyle means changing your routine. Not doing the same monotonous work you doing currently. Change also means adding different hobbies like you can join yoga class, cooking, painting etc. Thinks can change your routine and your mood too. If these things still doesn't then consult a Psychologist for counseling sessions.

My father aged 78 has developed a unique social anxiety problem since last 3 years, he tends to keep lying down, does’t talk much, has poor appetite, poor sleep & does’t venture out of home (feer of going out & meeting people), keeps imagining that he has various ailments. We have got him treated through a psychiatrist who gave him anti depressants & anti anxiolytics but nothing helped till date. Pls advise what to do for him. His vitals are normal & he has mild hypertension for which he is prescribed medicine which he takes regularly.

You may need to consult a qualified counsellor in your area and take their advice to get yourself released of all emotional trauma you hold within Symptoms suggests you are too much overworked and anxious You can engage yourself in some form of yoga or relaxation to take care of your stress and anxiety as apparently from your situation it seems you are very anxious. You should also share issues with close friends and pursue your hobbies to buildup your self esteem. Maybe gardening, writing, painting, music etc.
