I have a 10 years old boy suspect adhd. He take atomoxetine hydrochloride for 1 month. Any other remedy is available which has no side effects?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Atomoxetine may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or actions in children and teenagers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd). Talk with the patient's doctor to be sure that the benefits of using atomoxetine outweigh the risks. Families and caregivers must closely watch patients who take atomoxetine. It is important to keep in close contact with the patient's doctor. Tell the doctor right away if the patient has symptoms such as worsened depression, suicidal thoughts, or changes in behavior. Discuss any questions with the patient's doctor. There is no cure for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), but treatment can help relieve the symptoms and make the condition much less of a problem in day-to-day life. Adhd can be treated using medication or therapy, but a combination of both is often the best way to treat it. There are four types of medication licensed for the treatment of adhd: methylphenidate dexamfetamine lisdexamfetamine atomoxetine these medications are not a permanent cure for adhd, but they can help someone with the condition concentrate better, be less impulsive, feel calmer, and learn and practise new skills. Some medications need to be taken every day, but some can be taken just on school days. Treatment breaks are occasionally recommended, to assess whether the medication is still needed. You can ask me privately and keep me as your family doctor.

My son is 3 years 5 months old. He hits himself and becomes aggressive and behaves violently he hits his head on the wall, he hits his throat stomach and so. So we consulted a pediatrician and through EEG we came to know that he is having abnormal epilepsy activity. He is taking EPTOIN, piracetam and VALPARIN syrup from july but it continues the same and it is becoming really worse please help me and suggest us what to do to stop this?

Hi, I read your problem. Your son unfortunately has seizure disorder. These disorders need a lot of patience from the side of physicians and neurologists and most of it is born by the parents. He might have behavioral disturbances which are not uncommon in seizure disorder. Adding an antipsychotic agent (serotonin dopaminergic) agent might help. I suggest you consult psychiatrist along with neurologist too. We wish well for your son and do not worry there are people who have been trained in the same. All the best.

How to build confidence, self-assurance and self-esteem in Kids

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
How to build confidence, self-assurance and self-esteem in Kids
Confidence is a child’s passport to a lifetime of positive mental health, social happiness and long-term academic & professional progress. In other words self-assurance and self-esteem during childhood can be termed as the foundation for every child to lead a positive life and to get well prepared for the future.

However, in today’s demanding academic structure, it is not easy for a child to maintain a good confidence level, from competing nursery admission to weekly school tests, today’s child goes through numerous examinations, almost every day in his/her life and he/she is being judged both at home and outside. According to child psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo, oral communication alone by parents is not enough to build confidence in kids, she shares some important parenting tips that will help parents in this area:


1. Allow your child to make decisions:

When your child gets the chance to make choices from a young age, he/she will build confidence in their own judgement. Just consider the age of your child and set their decision-making parameters accordingly. Like, you may ask your 4 years old son or daughter what he /she would like to have in breakfast, an omelette or fruits or chapattis, instead of asking a broad question like “what you will have in your breakfast”, which they will likely to give you an answer either from their imagination or from their list of yummy foods (generally cake, chocolates or junk food).

2. Avoid always rescuing your child

For parents, the desire to prevent their child from getting hurt, feeling discouraged, feeling upset or making mistakes is natural, but when parents intervene, say if the parents go to their child’s school and pressure the cultural teacher to take their child in dance team (which he/she was not selected) then parents are doing something which is not right.

This is normal dear. It is possible sometimes that by birth you have less fatty tissue insulation in hands. Where veins don't have that subcutaneous fat base which fixes the vein and allows less movement. But if it is not so than also is fine, it is not counted as any disease at all. So enjoy.

Is it necessary to get the vaccination of brain fever to the child of 5 months.We rae residing at indirapuram, ghaziabad. If yes, then which vaccination and how much dose do it have and approx cost for the same? thanks .

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Three doses of hib vaccine is usually given in combination with dpt and/or hepatitis b. Cost depends on brand used and doctor's fees and could be around one thousand rupees. Other vaccine for meningococcal meningitis is used in high risk babies or those who demand and who can afford. All require 3 doses for primary immunisation at one month interval and a booster dose after one year

My son  is 15 months old He is suffering in Krabbe disease, is this disease is curable what we do Pls. Suggest me.
Dear parent Although there is no cure for Krabbe disease is known, bone marrow transplantation has been shown to benefit cases early in the course of the disease. Generally, treatment for the disorder is symptomatic and supportive. Physical therapy may help maintain or increase muscle tone and circulation. Cord blood transplants have been successful in stopping the disease as long as they are given before overt symptoms appear. All the best.

Hello thanks for the query the weight and head circumference is appropriate for the age. Weight of a baby usually get doubled by 5 months of age. The head circumference of a newborn baby is usually 33-34 cm and there is about 2 cm increase in head circumference during initial 3 months. Thereafter there is increment of about 1 cm per month. So the head circumference of your baby is also within normal limit. Semisolid feed should be started at 6 months of age. If you have any more query please let me know. Regards.

Bachon ki Khansi ka ilaj

बहुत आम पर हालत बिगाड़ देने वाली आम बीमारियों में से एक है खांसी। खांसी अगर गम्भीर रूप में हो जाए तो हेल्दी हेल्दी व्यक्ति भी थक हार कर सुस्त पड़ जाता है। शरीर का हर हिस्सा दर्द महसूस करने लगता है क्योंकि खांसते समय इसका असर केवल गले पर ही नही बल्कि सीना पेट हाथ पैर सब पर इफ़ेक्ट पड़ता है। बड़े तो फिर भी अपनी तकलीफ बयान कर भी लेते हैं और उसका इलाज भी कर लेते हैं पर सोचने की बात है कि बच्चों को खांसी होने पर उनका क्या हाल होता होगा। क्योंकि ना वो बता पाते हैं ना खुदसे अपनी मदद कर सकते हैं। इसलिए जरूरी है कि हमें पूरी जानकारी हो बच्चों को होने वाली खांसी की वजह और उसके इलाज के लिए घरेलू नुस्खों के बारे में।

दरसलश्लेम यानी म्यूकसको बाहर निकालने की कोशिश में या फिर गले और वायु मार्ग में सूजन होनेकी वजह से शिशु खांसता है।खांसी की वजह बहुत सी होती हैं, मगर आमतौर पर यह सर्दी-जुकाम या फ्लू का लक्षण होता है। ऐसे में हम अक्सर दवाओं का सहारा लेते हैं पर आपको यह बात पता होनी चाहिए कि सर्दी, जुकाम, खांसी जैसी बीमारियों में दवा देने की बजाय होम रेमेडीज अपनानी चाहिए। क्योंकि इन बीमारियों का नेचुरल तरीके से इलाज करना जितना बेहतर होता है उतना ही अंग्रेजी दवाओं से इलाज करना नेगेटिव साइड इफ़ेक्ट से भरपूर। तो आइए आज हम जानेंगे शिशुओं को होने वाली खांसी कारण और इससे राहत दिलाने वाले कुछ घरेलू नुस्खे।

खांसी के कारण

1. सर्दी-जुकाम
अगर आपके शिशु को सर्दी-जुकाम की वजह से खांसी हो रही हो, तो उसे साथ में बंद नाक, बहती नाक, गले में खारिश, आंखों में पानी और बुखार जैसे लक्षण भी हो सकते हैं। जुकाम की वजह से बनने वाले अतिरिक्त श्लेम को निकालने के लिए आपका शिशु खांसता है।

2. फ्लू
फ्लू के लक्षण सर्दी-जुकाम की तरह ही लग सकते हैं। अगर, आपके शिशु को फ्लू हो, तो उसे बुखार, नाक बहना और कई बार दस्त (डायरिया) या उल्टी भी हो सकती है। मगर फ्लू की वजह से होने वाली खांसी, जुकाम वाली खांसी से अलग होगी। यह बलगम वाली खांसी की बजाय सूखी खांसी होगी। इसका मतलब यह है कि आपका शिशु खांसी के साथ काफी कम बलगम निकाल रहा होगा।

3. क्रूप
अगर शिशु को क्रूप हो, तो उसे वायु मार्ग में सूजने होने की वजह से खांसी होगी। शिशुओं का वायु मार्ग काफी संकरा होता है और आपसे काफी छोटा होता है। इसलिए इनमें सूजन होने पर शिशु के लिए सांस लेना मुश्किल हो जाता है। छह माह और तीन साल के बीच के बच्चों को क्रूप होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। क्रूप खांसी मे भौंकने जैसी आवाज निकलती है। जो कि अक्सर रात में शुरु होती है।

4. काली खांसी 
काली खांसी या कुक्कर खांसी एक बैक्टिरियल इंफेक्शनहै। यह काफी संक्रामक होती है। काली खांसी में बहुत ज्यादा और खुश्क खांसी होती है। इसमें बहुत सारा श्लेम निकलता है और खांसते समय सांस लेते हुए उच्च स्वर या ध्वनि निकलती है।

5. दमा
शिशु को दमा की वजह से भी खांसी हो सकती है। अस्थमा से ग्रस्त शिशु की सांस लेते व छोड़ते समय श्वास फूलती है। उनकी छाती भी कस जाती है और सांस की कमी होने लगती है।

6. तपेदिक 
लगातार रहने वाली खांसी टी.बी. का लक्षण हो सकता है। टी.बी. की खांसी दो सप्ताह से ज्यादा जारी रहती है। टी.बी. से ग्रस्त शिशु की खांसी में खून आ सकता है, उसे सांस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है और भूख लगना कम हो सकती है। शिशु को बुखार भी हो सकता है।

बच्चों की खांसी के उपचार के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे 

1. गर्म तरल चीजें पिलाएं
बच्चे को ठंडे की बजाय गर्म पानी और बाकी चीज भी गर्म तासीर वाली ही पिलाएं जिससे गले की सूजन को आराम मिलेगा।

2. वाष्पित्र या वेपोरब का इस्तेमाल करें
वेपोरब २ साल के बच्चे को भी खॉँसी में तेजी से राहत देता है। इस जादुई रगड़ में मेन्थॉल, कपूर और नीलगिरी जैसी सामग्री हैंबच्चे को आराम दिलाती है।

3. सिर ऊंचा कर के सुलाएं
बलगम नाक से गले में टपक सकता है, जिसके परिणाम में गंभीर खाँसी हो सकती है। शरीर की ऐसी मुद्रा बहाव को प्रेरित कर सकती है। इसलिए बच्चे को उंचे स्थान पर सिर रखकर सोने से बहाव न होने में मदद होगी।

4. हल्दी की मदद लें
गर्म दूध के साथ आधी चम्मच हल्दी पाउडर मिलाए और बेहतर राहत पाने के इस मिश्रण को गरम ही पिलाएं। या फिरगर्म पानीमें एक चुटकी हल्दी पाउडर और नमक मिलाकर बच्चे से गरारा करवाने की कोशिश करें।

5. शहद अपनाएं
रात के समय सूखी खांसी से राहत के लिए बच्चे को सुलाने के पहलेउसे गर्म दूध में मिलाकर पिलाएं।

6. अदरक
एक कप पानी में अदरक के टुकड़ों को ड़ाल कर इस मिश्रण को आधि मात्रा होने तक उबालकर छान के इसमे एक चम्मच शहद डालकर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

7. तुलसी
तुलसी के पत्तों का रस निकाल कर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

8. अंगूर का जादू
अंगूर प्राकृतिक कफोत्सारक हैं और वे आपके फेफड़ों से कफ निकाल देते हैं। इन फलों के रस में शहद मिलाए और इस रसको बच्चे सोने से पहले थोड़ा सा पिलाएं।

9. एलोवेरा
बड़ों की खांसी हो या बच्चे की खांसी एलोवेरा का रस और शहद के मिश्रण काफी असरदार नुस्खा है।
