Tell your family psychiatrist s treat not only psychosis, when people may lose in touch with reality, but also common disorders like anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, adjustment problems, etc come under psychiatric disorders. Many lives have been lost or affected due to STIGMA held by family members and caregivers. You family needs to be properly educated and guided by someone.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. Lamez 100 mg Tablet is used in the treatment of seizures and mania. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break it. Lamez 100 mg Tablet may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time. Talk to your psychiatrist for more. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Dear user. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

this is best time to explore yourself, you are with yourself only none to interrupt you in any manner. love yourself , day by day try to look beautiful just to be happy, everything else will come itself to you, or even it doesn't come don't bother about it.

Dear user. I can understand. I do not know for how many years you are married, what is the general behavior of your husband and in-laws etc. Therefore it is very difficult to answer your question directly. But I can say very clearly that many family relationships break just because of misunderstanding and lack of trust. You must understand clearly whether you are actually and correctly understands your husbands behavior, of just blaming. If you are hundred percent perfect and right (if you feel) then we will talk about your husband's behavior and in that case he needs family counseling. Take care.

It canbe due to constant sitting and you get up in between and take short walks and make small exercises by stretching or moving the body and legs

It's so nice dear that you are t aking care of your father. If your father did not have epilepsy for last 2 years consecutively and it CT brain, sodium,potassium, thyroid,calcium level is normal than your physician may start lowering the dose under his supervision. You can give folic acid supplementation. Thanks.

I am getting anger when my mother in law scold me indirectly so I express these reaction on my babies n my husband I can't control my anger n the same time I can't express this anger on in my mother in law what should I do.

Soo you know your getting angry with someone. And this is not a good thing you also know it. Soo if you know your doing the wrong thing you have knowledge about that, soo if you know this you can correct urself also. U have to talk to your mother-in-law about this. Sometime this kind of thing make an impact on someone's mind. If not work try to avoid that situation. Meditation is needed. And also you need some proper homeopathic treatment for this. U can go to a counsellor for counseling. Bt dnt take psychiatric drugs. Soo for further quaries and treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.
