I take quetiapine 275 mg in last 4 years. Some side effects problems how to tapper that medicine completely.

Quetiapine, marketed as Seroquel among other names, is an atypical antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, Psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

I am getting stressed after full day working, what will be do for getting energies ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If the work load is causing the stress, learn to manage your work well. You could talk to your supervisor and tell him about the stress and he may suggest some better ways of doing what you are doing. Stress is eventually all about the perception of stress. If you change the outlook, the result will be 350`different. If there is a possibility to delegate some work to someone else, please do so. To feel energized you must eat healthy food involving whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Drink green tea and a lot of buttermilk every day. You may eat an egg every day too: it is a multivitamin and multi-mineral, all built into one. You must exercise regularly, especially the aerobic kind. Get at least 8 hours of good sleep and the more you sleep before midnight the better. Learn some stress management and meditation. You must identify our feelings and make sure you express all of them, appropriately. Maintain good relations, especially at home. Deep breathing exercises help to calm a person, immediately. Do not indulge in drinking and smoking.

Ocd is based on fear of an abnormal kind. You have done the right thing by trying cbt and since that has not produced the desired effect, it is time to include medication. This can become a very crippling disease and you should not burden yourself or your wife with the length of time for the treatment. All psychotropic drugs have side-effects. So you will have to bear with that and focus on the main problem. Please take her parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed into these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, her belief will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in her daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself, like the washing if hands. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

I am 20 years old. Gender female. I cant express any feeling. Specially sad, crying. If I want to crying always with smile. Nobody take it seriously. What can I do?

This is because you have been encouraged to always smile even if you wanted to cry. This has now become your pattern and is uncomfortable now. Counselling can help you to respond to different situations with the appropriate emotion and also weigh the pros and cons of your actions if you are not smiling always. You will feel a lot more connected with yourself and lead a fuller life when you accept yourself in total. Please click on private chat for a personal session.

I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so. But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction.-----------------------myself is a homoeopath and I will prescribe you a homoeopathic medicine which will help you in coming out of your withdrawl symptoms after quitting smoking quiet easily along with management for how to quit smoking and change in texture of your skin and lips--------------consult me-----------

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I am sorry to hear that you are facing hardships in your job that is making your life stressful. The fact that you are feeling loss of confidence and efficiency definitely suggests that you are not able to cope up with it. Frankly, you can't change the way your boss behaves but you can work on yourself and focus on improving your coping skills. You will need a complete evaluation by a psychiatrist and accordingly treatment will be initiated. Treatment modalisties can be medications, psychotherapy or a combination of both. You can consult me if you wish to in my clinic for the treatment. You should also start to exrcise daily and also start writing adiary daily to vent out your feelings. It will help you feel better. I do hope that you recover from this depressive phase soon enough. Best wishes.

Hi, I can understand your feelings. If there are any chances of patch up then first analyse the reasons of break up. Work on them and you may again give it a try if both of you are willing otherwise allow yourself some time to recover from this. Meanwhile engage yourself in some positive group activities like sports or music etc. If your sleep and appetite has got disturbed then please meet a psychiatrist and take some anti anxiety medicine for few days. Also see a counselor. If you want my help then you may contact me here on Lybrate on text counselling.

Dear , depression and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called depressive disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding depression helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which depressive disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

Study with a calm & relaxed mind. Try to enjoy your studies & stay positive. Do not take your studies as a stress. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •During these days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.
