Dear lybrate user...Certain depression medication like mirtazapine may cause excess sedation like in your case. My advice to you would be to take medications early in the evening say by 7, so that the early you sleep the early you would be able to get up in the morning and wont have daytime sleepiness too. All the best

Hi doctor, how are you. I am middle class, male, 36, from india living in a metro city. I lost my father a long time ago and my mother 3 years ago. By profession, I am an un-successful software engineer. My marriage broke few years ago (it was a 3 months marriage, no children) and my wife harassed me a lot due to one sided laws in india. I have a fight with both my sisters. At present, I am living alone (with my dog). In the past few years, I have taken a lot of emotional stress due to which my health deteriorated a lot. Now, my problem is that when ever I get angry, there is a lot of pain in my kidneys. I think there is a huge problem in the lower abdominal part of my body but its not showing anything serious when I conducted the normal whole-body test. What do you suggest about my problem? Should I go for some advanced tests?

It clearly indicates that when there is no identifiable medical reason for your problem, there is definitely a psychosomatic one for the same. Of course an advanced test may prove me wrong but from the description of all the failed relationships you have had so far and the lack of success at yoru job does indicate a man of many sorrows and stresses. If the underlying reason is not identified, especially emotions, it is very likely that you are giving yourself some bodily ailments and it will be wise to pursue a line of treatment to deal with the emotional component. You will probably save a lot of medical expense and further complications, and learn to live a life of good cheer.

Dear lybrate user. It has to be decided by your doctor whether to treat your symptoms with testosterone replacement therapy or by any other means, say, surgical removal of excessive fat aound your breasts based on your serum testosterone level. Generally trt produced good results and not expensive.

All psychotropic drugs have side effects. I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 things, 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Fear about heights are called acrophobia. Acrophobia is an extreme or irrational fear or phobia of heights, especially when one is not particularly high up. It belongs to a category of specific phobias. This can be cured with the help of counseling and other therapies. Take care.

My son is 33 years old, married for three years, achiever, working in a MNC, everything is hunky dory but in d last one year he is very obsessed with abs, pumping up and body building and has been taking zomacton (somatotropin) hormones for the last one year. He is very withdrawn, has mood swings. My daughter in law says he is absolutely disinterested in physical activity. Has no vices whatsoever. Well behaved, is not very social and is an introvert .He is feeling life is meaningless and has suicidal feelings at times (he has contemplated suicide when he was alone) he is not gregarious by nature. His routine is office, gym,eat n sleep and on weekends sleep a lot. His life has all d pluses, loving wife, v Good education, loving sibling and parents. V good job U name it n he has it all but of late he asks about d purpose of life and wants to write a book on it. Doesn't party, v occasional drinker, no subs abuse ever, no smoking or womanizing. While talking to his wife also, at times goes into a shell and wants to b left alone. What could b wrong? His wife is v chirpy and not at all demanding.

Dear Lybrate User, I think it will be helpful if your son and daughter in law seek help from a Couple Counsellor. It appears to me that either your son has had some difficult/traumatic childhood experiences or he might be having some doubts about his sexuality and sexual desire. The Counsellor will help them. If your son refuses to go to the Counsellor please ask your daughter in law to take the appointment and start the process. Many times young couples may not be able to share their sexual concerns with the elders in the house. The Counsellor will be of great help. Seek Counsellor's help at the earliest. All the best.

I having a smoking habit. How to stop it.

MD-Psychiatry, MBBS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Certificate in Forensic Psychology
Psychiatrist,
Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction

Hi, when you have true friends why feel lonely and bother about people who are bad to you, they are not even close to being your friend. Its important to count your blessings and take in positive information from enviroment rather than only focusing on negative. Make a diary- make a list of things you are thankful friend.
