Hello sir/ma'am i'm 20 years old boy and I always have suicide dreams, its about 4 or 5 times in a week, is it good or bad for my health?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
No single therapeutic approach is suitable for all people considering suicide or suicidal tendencies. The most common ways to treat underlying illnesses associated with suicide are with medication, talk therapy or a combination of the two. Cognitive (talk therapy) and behavioral (changing behavior) therapies aim at relieving the despair of suicidal patients by showing them other solutions to their problems and new ways to think about themselves and their world. Behavioral methods, such as training in assertiveness, problem-solving, social skills, and muscle relaxation, may reduce depression, anxiety, and social ineptitude. Cognitive and behavioral homework assignments are planned in collaboration with the patient and explained as experiments that will be educational even if they fail. The therapist emphasizes that the patient is doing most of the work, because it is especially important for a person thinking about suicide not to see the therapist as necessary for their survival. Recent research strongly supports the use of medication to treat the underlying depression associated with suicide. Antidepressant medication acts on chemical pathways of the brain related to mood. There are many very effective antidepressants. The two most common types are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) and tricyclic antidepressants (tcas). Other new types of antidepressants (e. G. Alpha-2 antagonist, selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (snris) and aminoketones), and an older class, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (maois), are also prescribed by some doctors. Antidepressant medications are not habit-forming. Although some symptoms such as insomnia, often improve within a week or two, it may take three or four weeks before you feel better; the full benefit of medication may require six to eight weeks of treatment. Sometimes changes need to be made in dosage or medication type before improvements are noticed. It is usually recommended that medications be taken for at least four to nine months after the depressive symptoms have improved. People with chronic depression may need to stay on medication to prevent or lessen further episodes. People taking antidepressants should be monitored by a doctor who knows about treating clinical depression to ensure the best treatment with the fewest side effects. It is also very important that your doctor be informed about all other medicines that are taken, including vitamins and herbal supplements, in order to help avoid dangerous interactions. Alcohol or other drugs can interact negatively with antidepressant medication. Do not discontinue medication without discussing the decision with your doctor. Ask privately if you need more advice.

Find out the cause, analyse your thought process, if you are excessively attached to any thing, it happens, it may be gf, mobile, anything, solution: try to detach yourself from that for a short while, think positive, socialize, discuss your problems with friends, you will be fine within a week.

Pain is because go vaginismus. Women with vaginismus can do exercises, in the privacy of their own home, to learn to control and relax the muscles around the vagina. First, do kegel exercises by squeezing the same muscles you use to stop the flow of urine when urinating: squeeze the muscles. Hold for 2 seconds. Relax the muscles. Do about 20 kegels at a time. You can do them as many times a day as you want to. Sexual practices with your spouse or current romantic partner, enjoy foreplay, which helps with relaxation and lubrication.

Hi. My 15 year old child was diagnosed with depression and anxiety 5 months back. He has been on daxid 25 mg since then. He has also been going for therapy alongside. The therapist has terminated his therapy 2 months back saying now he only needs to go whenever he feels the need. In these 2 months he asked for one session when he feeling stressed before her exams. For daxid medicine, it was recommended we complete 6 months of the medication before stopping it. This will be done by next month. My question is what is the best way to stop the medication and what are the chances and signs of relapse if any that one needs to watch out for. What is the usual success rate of this medication in this age group and can we hope for a high chance of not needing to go back to medication in future?

My friend get angry often when I speak normally with him. Please say the methods or steps to reduce his anger and make him like a normal person.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Anger is an emotion which express in stressful conditions so you can’t cure anger, you can manage the intensity and effect. Talk to your friend regarding any problem he is facing or any other emotional trigger present. You can consult a psychiatrist and psycologist for various anger management therapies. He/she can prescribe antidepressent medications as they have a calming effect that can support control of rage and negative emotion.

Dear Zeeshan. Welcome to lybrate. From the given information and circumstances, there is no remote chance of getting pregnant. Pregnancy happens only when your sperm travels into the vagina of the female. Take care.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.
