Hello Doctor, I am 23 years Old and I am a ca final student not able to give my exams due to this mental illness From past 16 months I am suffering from bad anxiety and depression but from past week my thoughts getting changed everyday earlier I was getting that everyone is talking about me or wants to kill me now I am getting that I want to kill others or I want to do some violative act or want to kill or hurt myself. Well yesterday I went to the psychiatrist and he has diagnosed me with OCD and prescribed me Paxidep CR 12.5 once in a day, Clonazepam 0.50 Mg 1 and half tablet a day and risperidone 2 mg Half medicine in the night I have start taking other medicines except risperidone as it is a anti psychotic Now please can you tell me what symptoms I am going through and should I take risperidone.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Let us look at your scenario systematically. First, what is the likely diagnosis? It is difficult to say with the limited information available, but if one were to conclude with this information, I would agree with the diagnosis that was assigned to you (OCD). Your doctor is not using risperidone as an antipsychotic here, but as an augmenting agent. The dose of risperidone is on the lower side and that further confirms his intentions. The use of risperidone when there is unsatisfactory improvement with an SSRI is well known and proven beyond doubt. But the question here is whether we can just have improvement with an appropriate dose of paxidep alone or not. The only way to get to know that is to try it without the risperidone with appropriate dose adjustments from time to time. A call regarding risperidone can be taken after a few weeks of treatment along these lines. Please understand that all of the above suggestions are for your information only and I have no intention to question or interfere with your doctor's line of treatment. Also, since I have not seen you, I am assuming that the diagnosis of OCD is accurate and you have previously not taken medicines for the same or previously did not have any psychiatric ailments. A number of psychiatric terms, diagnoses and medication classes are deceptively similar to words used in general english. For example the word obsession as used in english and as used in psychiatry are completely different. Similarly, a medicine that is called an antidepressant or an antipsychotic is not simply a medicine to be given in depression and psychosis only, but depending upon the dose and other medicines being used alongside, can have vastly different effects and can be used in many different conditions. For example, a medicine such as propranolol, depending upon the dose and formulation can be used in the treatment of migraine, BP, anxiety, heart disease, intra-abdominal bleeds, aggression and so on. So stay away from a simplistic interpretation of what a medicine is for and clarify with the doctor. Take care!

I am a 25 years old female. I have a bad memory. Initially, I was only bad with names of people. I used to forget them easily. If I needed to remember the names, either I had to write the name down or keep on revising. But now I find myself forgetting words from my subject matters. I am not able to remember the meaning of a word I do not usually use. I know forgetting can be quit normal but this is something more than usual. Should I be concerned? Is this some problem?

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I am 44 years male like sex very much but I think about my wife for this purpose l do not want to have sex. Frequency of sex is one time in two month. My mind always seek some other woman or girl for this purpose. What is the solution of this problem.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fantasy and imagery is good to keep one sexually active. But it is not the reality! at 44 years of age, some men would want to experiment something different to get over the boredom of daily life. Just remember, most women would want to experiment too. So how about exploring your sexuality and that of your wife too?

Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?
Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

I can not pronounce some words properly. My tongue will not support. I can not speak fast! How to overcome from it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Dear Wasim, These are the symptoms of an anxiety disorder. Which type of anxiety disorder, will be diagnosed by a psychiatrist after a detailed assessment of how long it is there, how much it interferes with your day-today life, what are the bodily symptoms associated with it, etc etc. After diagnosing, treatment may be an anxiolytic or antidepressant tablet or relaxation therapy or psychotherapy, depending on the diagnosis and your preference.

Dear user. I can understand. Shyness is a blessing on many accounts. You don't need to change your behavior pattern completely and your shy attitude completely. that will be bad. Instead, provide me the situations you want to change your behavior. We can work together and change your shyness in those circumstances. Take care.

Depression should be objectively treated as an illness. Low mood, withdrawn behaviour, lack of interest and motivation, low energy and anxiety are symptoms of the same. Please lift yourself and approach a psychiatrist asap, the earlier you start, the earlier you are likely to regain your ownself. Medicines alongwith psychotherapy should take care of you completely. Take care.
