I have fever for over two days. I have headache, and body pain. What are the medicines suggest for me?
First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- take gelesemium 200, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

My boyfriend is suffering from delusions of persecution & is on treatment for substance induced psychotic disorder since an year now. He's not abusing any substance now & he's not scared of people anymore but his delusion on me has not gone away still. He thinks i've drugged him & i'm the cause of all his suffering. He's uncomfortable meeting me. This illness has ripped our relationship apart. He stays in mumbai & I had to leave mumbai because he was totally scared of me. I'm in kolkata. Now the problem is he can't stay with me but can't be away too. He talks to me everyday & we have a platonic relationship. The intensity of his delusion isn't as strong as before though. My question is'will he never realize his delusions? is there any hope? he's suffering from psoriasis too now. How can I contribute in his wellbeing?

Usually drug-induced psychosis fortunately has a two-year duration and will subside on its own. It is good he is on treatment though which will make it easier. Even the geographical distance between you two will give him the space and time to work on the issues since he is blaming you for his self-induced condition. He needs counseling to sort out his distortion with your involvement and come to terms with his contribution and the addiction. Most addicts have a problem accepting the seriousness of their problem and use denial to blame other people and factors for their plight. He needs to sort this out first. You just have to be assuring to him and talk like normal and that you are not guilty of any wrong doing. There is no point in getting into a slanging match while denying it. If that happens, just keep quiet and say that it is up to him to believe you or not. I also think that if he does not work or resolve his problem, you may have to take a call about the future of this relationship from your side at least. You may go about it as gently as possible but the hard reality is that there is something wrong to begin with and unless that is worked up on and dealt with, with some guarantees that that will not recur as a permanent problem in the future, you could be looking at letting him go. If you still want to pursue the relationship, please get involved in his recovery to understand the implications and the extent he has resolved the addiction problem and the psychosis. Sometimes the chemical could have induced an underlying predisposition to the psychosis. Then it is a different situation all together. You must also work on why you were attracted to such a personality, and if that moots some serious work, please do so for your own good, whether you make it with him or not.

Dear Doctor, I am a student, I am very good before but now I feel like where I am losing my memory and lots of weakness I am not able to eat more what can I do if any tablets or syrup is required for me please suggest me.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Poor nutrition can lead to deficiency and consequently lack of energy, stamina and concentration. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: Eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals.Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

How should be concentrate our. Mind. While. Studying at. Night. And hw we should learn correctly?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Lybrate-user. First of all, study times and study methods have to be individualized. However there are certain prerequisites for a good study and learning process. Your mind needs to be focused, should have good concentration levels and no distractibility. If you are easily distracted and less attentive that could be a presentation of attention deficit disorder. So also you need to have only the right amount of stress for study. Learning is a combination of attentive reading, grasping and rehearsing what you learnt. Here are few steps to improve your concentration and learning. - set approachable targets for study everyday - do not stretch yourself beyond your physical or mental limits - study in short periods of 40-50 minutes, take relaxing breaks of 5-10 minutes in between. - do not be overdemanding. Know your limitations, study regularly and steadily. Practice makes a man perfect. If you still have issues with concentration and find it difficult to be attentive while studying, see a psychiatrist soon.

Hello, Tobacco in every form is very harmful to health - cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or chewable tobacco. Exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke is also dangerous. The risk of heart attack and stroke starts to drop immediately after a person stops using tobacco products. Take tabacum 200, 5 drops once in a week and arnica 30 ch, 5 drops once daily.Daphne indica 1x, 2 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 1 month.

Dear user, I can understand. You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

I m really facing a bad mood swings time and again n completely blank at the same time. I wish to cry hard but fail to do so even. With passing days anxiety z growing m not able to track what's going on.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to describe these symptoms immediately to your doctor. You need to also meet with a counselor and learn certain skills to cope with everyday happenings. The medication you are on needs to be closely monitored and if there is any change in behavior, you must report the same to the doctor. Other than that you need to put yourself on a tight time schedule and follow it regularly. You must do vigorous exercise and include Yoga and meditation. Please eat healthily, and get enough sleep every day. Do not withdraw and keep a social life that is active and with lots of friends. I hope you are either working or studying. Don?t let this condition make you dysfunctional. The mood swings and blank moments are not a good sign. So a review and follow up with the doctor is due.

Dear Mazhar, Welcome to lybrate. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

You have anxiety disorder and mind relaxation by meditation and other means can be tried. Being 18 year old female, it would be useful to do a tsh test to know our thyroid state as disorders can cause anxiety. Once this is ruled out you can try other means. Regards.
