Since you know some thing is wrong between you and your wife, either try to talk it out with your wife. If that effort meets a dead end, contact a marriage counselor and get in to therapy.

Unlike my other friends I usually keep quit, if I am hurt (mentally) I can't move on I keep thinking about the problem. I also don't get excited usually, Its very rare to see myself excited. I think this started from my 7th - 8th class I was studying in boarding school and I wanted to leave the school but my parents didn't allowed me. In my family my uncle is like this.

My wife is taking one tablet each of PALIRIS 6 and FLUNIL 20 for last nine years. She was diagnosed for schizophrenia. She does not feel any problem now. What needs to be done.

Its really wonderful that your wife is doing well on paliris and flunil. So ask her to follow her hobbies, mefitation and yoga which maintain balance of chemicals and keeping her busy in a good way is also essential. But do not stop her medicines abruptly without doctor's suggestion! take care!

Consult a dermatologist to find out the cause of itching. Your current treatment is helping to reduce the symptoms, but not curing the underlying cause. Treat the cause and you will experience relief.

Hello doctor, my wife is a depression patient & she is taking medicine viz. Peri Cr 12.5mg & clonax 0.25mg once a day. Now she is around 12 weeks pregnant. We are worried about, are these medicines safe at this stage for my wife as well as for our baby.

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hi, good presence of mind to confirm risks of medications! Congratulations! Clonax 0.25mg needs to be immediately stopped as it can be harmful to growing baby. Pari-CR is NOT ENTIRELY safe, but depending upon your wife's symptom improvement & severity of her depressive illness. It can be continued with strict observation like 2 monthly ultrasound & some other blood tests. So contact your Ob/Gynecologist & discuss about these tests & your wife's current condition. Also keep your wife's Psychiatrist informed about her pregnancy & current status as Depression tends to flair up during last 2 months of pregnancy or immediately post delivery. You can also contact me for further help. Good Luck!

Concentrating, grasping and retaining abilities generally vary from individual to individual. Different individuals have different rasping and retaining levels as per there iq levels. Just make the child do yoga and meditation to increase the concentrating power. There are no medicines to increase the brain power. You can try some home tips like having an almond soaked in water overnight daily and some walnuts. There is a syrup from himalaya named mentat which you can try which they say improves memory power! just have patience your child will overcome this!

How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Is depression eating you up from within? Are you facing severe emotional meltdown? Emotional disturbances can ruin your life and this is why you have to look for the best preventive ways. You can have a consultation with any counsellor so that you can share your problems. Your counsellor will definitely help you to get some potential way out. 

Best ways for preventing emotional meltdown:

  1. Detecting the signs: The actual signs of emotional meltdown need to be detected and then only you can get rid of the same. Both your facial expressions and behavioural changes are to be observed carefully as these will help you to detect the signs. If you are remaining silent for most of the times, then there is something going on in your mind for sure. 
  2. Early intervention: You should rely on your intuition or sixth sense so that you can sense the troubles you are going to face. You should have a good observation power so that you can sense things easily. Remain quiet and calm so that you can take the right decisions. 
  3. Living well: You need to choose a completely healthy way of living, otherwise you will never get freedom from emotional troubles. Do not think much about past incidents, rather you should look forward so that you can go ahead. You should develop only positive mentality in order to discharge your duties in a perfect manner. Remain happy and keep everybody happy and then only you will be able to get the actual essence of life. Healthy eating and good habits are also needed so that your life can become more lively and refreshing. 
  4. Have proper communication: If you think that your friends or family members are pretty reliable, then you can openly communicate with them. This would help you to get mental relief and relaxation.  If you open up your emotions and share them with anybody, then you will feel relaxed and your mind will be calm at all times. 
  5. Have counselling: It is not always possible to share all your secrets with your loved ones and this is the reason you have to look for the most reliable option. You can go for thorough counselling, and this can help you to get rid of depressing thoughts and other mental troubles. In this case, you have to look for the best counsellor in your locality so that you can disclose all your hidden secrets.

I have quit antidepressant called mirtazapine 7.5 mg 3 months ago. But now again symptoms has begun and I restarted taking it and again start to feel fresh. But I am mainly concern with weight gain after restarting it. Previously I have gained lot of weight on taking it. And able to loose few after quitting it. Whether on restarting mirtaz I will again gain lot of weight? My maximum dosage of mirtaz was 30 mg .on restarting I have taken 7.5 mg. How much weight does it increase normally on restarting mirtazapine 7.5 mg.

You cannot calculate weight gain on the basis of dosage or when you restarted. Neither should you stop or restart medication without the doctor's consent and consultation. It is, in fact, dangerous. The weight gain is a side effect but at least the depression gets taken care of. Anyway, do talk to the doctor about your concerns but do not self-regulate the medication at any cost. Additionally, you can follow some of these instructions, which includes exercise mandatorily: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and with your doctor and you must cooperate with both to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

If you are aware that you speak to yourself loudly then that is not a problem. But if you are not then we have a concern and you should meet a counselor immediately. Anyway you will need to speak to a counselor to find out the nature of the stress you manifest. If that person feels that you need to meet a doctor please do so without hesitation. Even if you are put on medication do not discontinue the counseling which you will require for quite some time. It will help if you know your family history and your developmental background and furnish the same to the counselor to trace the origins of the stress. Are you aware of any fear that is overwhelming you? that could just be a simple beginning to get you started. Please cooperate promptly with the therapies because the prognosis will be very good if you start early before it gets chronic.

and from last 4 5 months. I was in stress bcoz of my mba ? Is this the reason behind that ?
Dear Lybrate user. Excess study without taking care of your natural ability and health, exerts stress on your body and mind. That is natural. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Sir, my husband has faced a lot in the former year, he used to be very calm person, most sincere about his relationships with other, he is a kind of guy who can never hurt anyone intentionally, he love me so much but as his parents are getting divorce and after so many financial crisis, he has become very hard to handle. By this I mean his total personality has changed, he is very rude and he really can't control his temper, by time he has become overly possessive for me, he look for things that may relate to my past or that he makes issue out of everything, former I felt that he don't really care about me because whenever I cry he dont pamper me instead he start to yell at me as if cry is a crime, he do realizes his behaviour towards me and appologises but then again he become rude. I consider it as medical disturbance because. Umm. For instance yesterday we went out on for movie, we really had a great day, he loved me so much and by night he asked me for divorce. This sudden change in his behaviour and mood swings, I am worried!

Dear , I can understand. Your worries are definitely a matter of concerns and your husband's behavior also has reasons. He is stressed from work side, disappointed in life etc. Because of those problems, his behavior towards you could have been a bit erratic. Don't worry. Can you request him to consult me online? two or three counseling sessions should do good to the whole of your family. Take care.

I think that you have depression and there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.
