This is normal grief reaction. Which lasts for months, so it's normal, but when it starts extending beyond time limit, or starts disrupting normal life it is high time to consult a psychiatrist.

What is the best treatment for bipolar disorder along with taking medication. I am 21 years old.

What is the best treatment for bipolar disorder along with taking medication. I am 21 years old.
The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role. Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep and loss of touch with reality. Depressive episodes may include symptoms such as low energy, low motivation and loss of interest in daily activities. Mood episodes last days to months at a time and may also be associated with suicidal thoughts. Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy. Take care.

If I eat raw garlic with honey morning when I get up from sleep will it help me to reduce my cholesterol levels.
Yes it will work. You firstly stop causative factors from your life style. Like drinking too much cold water, eat too much sweets, day sleep, water after meal, lack of exercise, curd, menda etc. I will need your detail history. Till you can follow this * start drinking hot water * stop day sleep * start any exercise in morning, like suryanamaskar, walking, joging, sports * drink juice of turmeric n ginger with honey * take jau barley, instead of ghenhu wheat. * use cow ghee n milk only * boild rise in open pot, don't use cocker. Withdraw water if rice.

I am always losing memory. Every time I lose my memory. When I am standing in front of anything to do something at that time I forget what to do? And also when I speak anything I can not speak what I want to speak and other words come. if I want to speak the word 'eat' I speak drink. I have no other health problems. Every thing is ok. What I do doctor?

this is a sign of anxiety. You need to practice breathing exercises, listen to relaxing music, exercise regularly or practice yoga. Medicines under expert supervision may be needed if problems persist. Just to be sure get a hemogram, serum TSH and vitamin B12 levels done.

I am taking alcohol from last 23 years. I want to quit but I can not do this. I can not live without alcohol. please suggest me what should I do.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol. Also , remember that smoking is harmful to your body Please remember that alcohol is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol.

I am 80 years old. I developed illness one year back of forgetting things. Slowly it increased. Now I feel to forget common physical things also. Sometimes I feel afraid that some one may steal my valuables etc. I am prescribed antidepressants. What is the cure.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
It is likely, given your age and symptoms, that you are suffering from dementia. Symptoms consist of: forgetfulness, speech problems, memory loss, difficulty in carrying out activities. There is also lowness of mood, irritability and at times, fearfulness and suspiciousness. I suggest you consult a Psychiatrist at the earliest along with your caretaker or close family member. With medication and counseling you may see some improvement in your symptoms.

Dear user. Hypochondriasis, also known as hypochondria, health anxiety or illness anxiety disorder, refers to worry about having a serious illness. This debilitating condition is the result of an inaccurate perception of the condition of body or mind despite the absence of an actual medical condition. Usually the treatment is a combination of psychiatric drugs, counseling and psychotherapy. I suggest online counseling and psychotherapy. Take care.

Hello Lybrate-user, Don't dwell too much on your future, future is something that has not happened yet and so you can always choose to change your present to modify your future. 1. Keep aside 15 minutes in a day to think about your future, after that you have to concentrate on your studies. 2. Whenever your thoughts bother you Deep Breathe in for 10 minutes. 3. Take up a new hobby or activity, this will keep you distracted and your mind fresh. E.g. Any sport, learn a new instrument like guitar, dance or even paint.

Dear , you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Treatment types depend in large part on what is causing your agoraphobia, and whether or not you have agoraphobia with or without panic attacks. Without panic disorder often agoraphobia is treated with its own specific cognitive behavioral therapy treatments, especially exposure therapy. Exposure therapy involves helping the individual get used to the idea of going outside through a serious of steps that help them become more relaxed in public situations. Medications may also be used to clear up anxiety, under the assumption that the individual will spend more time outside and reduce their fear of unfamiliar situations. Medications are generally a last resort, however. With panic disorder similar treatments may be used when someone has panic disorder, but they need to be combined with panic attack treatments. Exposure therapy for panic attacks may be a good place to start, because it allows people to get used to each individual panic attack trigger ultimately reducing the likelihood that a sensation will cause a panic attack. Medicines are used, but they're not advisable. Recall that panic attacks can be triggered by fear of a panic attack. While medications may provide temporary relief, as soon as you wean off the medications you'll fear having a panic attack again, and a panic attack will become more likely. In all cases of agoraphobia, treatment cannot start until your anxiety is better understood. Consult with me for psychotherapy try breathing exercises abdominal deep breathing.

We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. .Homoeopathic medicines acts as a catalyst in increasing the production of these hormones. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 24 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines. Consult me Fast for Homoeopathic consultation as you short of time

This could be a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder. It cannot be treated with sleep medicines. But the easier way to treat it is with medicines (NOT sleeping pills). There is a way of treating it without medicines, in the form of behavior therapy. But this will take more time and effort from the patient's side. Please give us some more details of the symptoms so that we can help you better with a tailor made plan. Take care!

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Brain fag needs to be diagnosed as a disease condition. Brain fag symptoms includes somatic, sleep-related and cognitive complaints, head and neck pains, difficulty in concentrating and retaining information, and eye pain. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.
