I am a 31 year old male who has been on medication for Depression and Anxiety (OCD) for the last 8 Months I suffered from it for about 10 years before seeing this doctor. This is the first psychiatrist I am seeing .I am comparatively better than before however I still see some images mind creates Images while working and I have become least concerned about my weighty issues. It is the first the psychiatrist I have been to as the problem is not going away he is not changing the medication. Do you think It can go away?

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Considering the longstanding history, I think reasonably good progress has been made. I am not sure if your question is whether you should see somebody else or ask your own doctor to increase dose/ change medication, or, you are asking if the medicines can be stopped now. A lot depends on how much symptoms is still present and how troubling it is. Medicines will certainly need to continue at the time being but whether a dose increase or change of medicines is needed depends on how troubling the residual symptoms are. Although I am not aware what medicines you are on, it may not be wise to decrease/ change the existing medicines right now, risking re- emergence of symptoms. Very often, in OCD, symptoms improve significantly and continue at a low level. The exact scenario in your case is a little unclear to me and will need a proper evaluation to clarify. Take care!

Parkinson's Disease - Learn To Maximise The Effect Of Levodopa!

Parkinson's Disease - Learn To Maximise The Effect Of Levodopa!

If you are being treated for Parkinson's disease. How can you maximize the effect of Levodopa? The effect of levodopa can be maximized by increasing its absorption from the digestive system. In particular, taking levodopa on an empty stomach is very important. 

  1. Take on an empty stomach: Do not eat anything 1 hour before taking levodopa. Do not eat anything for at least 30 minutes and if possible 1 hour after taking it. Take the pill with 2 glasses of water so that it can dissolve. If taking the levodopa on an empty stomach makes you nauseous, confirm that your medication has the right amount of carbidopa in relation to the levodopa (25%). If you continue to feel nauseous, you can eat a piece of white bread around the time that you take levodopa. Do not apply any butter, yogurt, cheese or similar high protein spreads. Protein can drastically decrease the absorption of levodopa. 
  2. Get your constipation treated: This is critically important too. Being constipated can slow down the passage of levodopa through the digestive system. In most patients, drinking adequate water and taking stool softeners is helpful. 
  3. Get your ulcer treated: It can be difficult to recognize that you have a gastric ulcer. However, if you have a burning sensation in your stomach at any time, or belch frequently, you may have a gastric ulcer. If you think you have an ulcer you should get tested (there is a simple breath test now) and treated with antibiotics (not antacids!) 
  4. Do not take levodopa with iron tablets: The iron binds to levodopa and prevents its absorption. Keep a gap of at least two hours between these two medications. 
  5. Try taking levodopa with orange juice and carbonated water (soda): Mix equal quantities of orange juice and carbonated water (soda). Take your regular levodopa with a glass of this preparation instead of water. The carbonated water hastens disintegration of the tablet, and the acidity of both things helps in levodopa absorption. There are special tablets of levodopa (dispersible levodopa, Madopar) which can be dissolved in this preparation. Talk to your doctor about it.

I am felling weak and not much concentration power in studying and any other work so what can I do?

Diet and workouts go a long way in helping you gain strength to gain weight, you must eat more calories than you burn. When you gain weight, some will be fat and some will be muscle. To gain muscle, you must eat protein. To boost the ratio of muscle to fat gain, you must exercise. To gain muscle and strength, you must engage in resistance exercise. To improve bodyfat percentage and gain weight, you must cycle through phases of gaining muscle and losing fat. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Now a day we are observing that she always find herself in fear. She always thinking about something which is baseless. From last 2 it is very much increased, she started doubting her who call her to enquiry about her health. Why did she call her? she is not good? she is planning something wrong against me etc. She always has a fear that something is going to be wrong with her.

From the given symptoms, I think your sister is going through anxiety disorder and could be blown up into depressive disorder. I request you to consult psychologist / psychiatrist for further evaluation.

Is there any treatment for it or not.

Hello, U haven't mentioned whether your father had been diagnosed some sort of neurological disorder, or has atleast undergone some investigations. There are various neurological disorder which can cause such forgetfulness symptoms, the very common being Alzheimer's disorder. As per my opinion, your father has some neurological disorder, but few patients for attention seeking may also develop such symptoms intentionally. Let me know if there's a cause diagnosed. If the case is later one, surely he needs psychological support. There are medicines for neurological disorders if the case is so. For any further queries, feel free to text back.

You can overcome by practising meditaion and yoga .Resting at night plays an important role in regulating your daily health and your level of energy throughout a day. Also, not only the quantity but the quality of sleep is also important for a healthy lifestyle. Bedtime habits do play a vital role in shaping up your lifestyle and personality as a whole. Here are many lifestyle habits that can help you to get sound sleep. 1. Make regular and a fixed sleep pattern: Going to sleep and waking up the same time every day helps to maintain an equilibrium in the sleep-wake cycle called diurnal rhythm. If this balance is maintained, then your body will be accustomed to this pattern and as a result, you will feel less tired and fresh throughout the day 2. Maintain a definite dietary regulation: You should also maintain a proper diet plan and observe the consequences/effects of the foods that you are eating and the fluids that you are drinking on your sleep pattern. Taking a good and properly nutritious diet on a daily basis will help you to stay healthy and help your natural sleep-wake cycle. 3. Ensure that your room has mild or dim lighting or darkness if you prefer: The level of light also matters at the time of your sleep. You should definitely make sure that there is a very minimal level of light or darkness around you when you try to sleep. This should be done because the lesser is the light, the more comfortable you are while sleeping. Additionally, the sleep that you will get in a dark room will also be sound and undistorted as it helps keep all the sensory organs calm. 4). Do some relaxing activities before bedtime: Depending on your choice, you should follow simple techniques of relaxation in order to calm down the brain before sleep. Like mediation, Yoga or- deep breathing exercise, muscle relaxing activity, visualizing a peaceful setting/ scenario like a calm garden or beach or mountain area. These activities are just guidelines and you can do anything that helps you to get a relaxing mood and sleep. 5). Avoid daytime naps if you can , But Having short naps of less than one hour is absolutely okay if you are excessively tired during the day or you did not have a sound sleep the previous night. But, if you are consistently having long naps during the day then you are bound to have sleep issues during the night. So it is advisable to sleep early and wake up early for a healthy schedule. 6) Regular exercise: Exercising regularly helps to improve the overall quality of sleep by making you tired at night and sending you to bed more efficiently. Light to mild exercises also helps cure sleep disorders like insomnia.

Dear Lybrate user it's completely fine that you are not that much expressive about your feelings. We all are different. Everyone have their own strengths & weaknesses. Don't worry or feel so small and depressive. Try accepting yourself first. Analyse your own potentials. Assess your likes, dislikes, healthy habits and also areas of improvement. Then try to think why you lack behind. Are there certain factors that pull you back? Wat factors or skills can improve this weakness. These evaluation will help you to find a solution and then you can work on improving those things. Using word like depression is a huge term. One can't just diagnose like that. Only Clinical Psychologist are trained to do so. Hence, if things trouble you again consult a Clinical Psychologist on one on basis. Best wishes.
