My mother has Alzheimer's disease, and I've noticed she is getting more confused. How can I help her?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Alzheimer's dementia is a progressive disease. There are practically no medications for cure of alzheimer's or reversing the damages caused by alzheimer's dementia. However there are certain medications which can definitely slower the rate at which memory loss and behavior problems surface. Also to treat and keep behavior and sleep problems under control certain medicines are helpful. In all, you may consult a psychiatrist with all her details and get a personalised treatment plan for her. Take care.

Hi Ms. lybrate-user, Hope you are feeling good. I am 100% sure, they cannot give any injection filled with air. Since you may in chronic depression, they may put some sedative for your emotional betterment. Don't worry. Talk to some counseling Psychologist about your marriage issue or adjustment issue. You can have better settlement.

Many times when the sleep is disturbed it leads to many problems in the body and the mind. In today’s fast moving world sleep is disturbed by our surroundings and our activities. Here are some simple steps to improve your sleep. 1. Keep a fixed time to wake up every morning regardless of what time you go to sleep. 2. Use your bed/mattress only for sleeping. Better don’t use it for watching TV/browsing the net/chatting on phone. In case you haven’t noticed separate furniture are available for those activities.! 3. Avoid taking tea/coffee after 5 pm. No question of smoking or alcohol – these are sure fire ways to have a disturbed sleep. 4. If you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, walk out of the bed to a different room. Engage in some simple activity like reading a pleasant book/listening to some melody. 5. Don’t keep staring at the watch/clock while trying to fall asleep. 6. Try to unwind with a warm bath and gentle music before going to bed. Grandma would say drink a cup of milk. Listen to her.! 7. Sleep in a place which is not noisy/bright – pretty obvious isn’t it.?! Yet we ignore it too often. 8. Consult a psychiatrist for help if above methods fail. Please don’t self-medicate. We are here to help.!! - Dr.Parthasarathy,MBBS,MD.(JIPMER), Psychiatrist OMR Chennai ( Thoraipakkam)

If you live worrying about what other people will think and say of you, you will be ruined. You have not given details of your health problem so it is difficult for me to tell you what to do. If your mother, who knows you best recommends this course of action, I suggest that you do so. If you think she does not understand the modern day kid or you, in particular, talk to her about your worries and she will advise you best. Sometimes a change in course does wonders to your intellectual prowess and help you with some confidence too. One year spent fruitfully will do you more good than harm.

please remember it is very easy to get addicted but very difficult to quit. You need to meditate and talk to your support groups and find what" you" really are and what you would like to" become. Also remember, for long term addictions it is common to relapse. It is like you are repeating the same mistake and wished if only you could help it! the point is to accept and forgive yourself and be stronger next time and make a commitment to yourself first.

Hello Doctor, I am 22 years old boy 1 years ago I faced a shock in my life that lead me to depression. Psychiatrist advised me some medicine. I took for 15 days but after 15 days a local doctor advised me to give up that medicine as I could be addicted to it. In starting it was very tough to cover up my muscle muscle pain but Now after 1 years my life is almost alright. But still some times I feel restless for 1-3 minutes that's also very minor. I think I have recovered 90% depression as my muscle pain is almost gone . Am I doing right.

The muscle pain may not have anything to do with the depression. Anyway since it has improved that is fine. With regards to the depression you must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, 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, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

How can I get rid of mood swings, anger irritability due to menopause though medicines?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please check with your gynecologist before trying any of the recommendations mentioned here. Eat a healthy diet: avoid spicy foods, caffeine (in tea, coffee, cola, etc), smoking, and alcohol that may trigger hot flushes. Spicy, hot foods and beverages intensify the hot flashes. Eat a diet that includes foods rich in calcium and vitamin D, drink a pint of milk a day; plus eat 60 g (2 oz) hard cheese, such as Cheddar or Edam, or one pot of yoghurt (125 g), or 60 g of sardines. White bread and calcium-fortified soya milk are also good sources of calcium. The following have been marketed for menopausal symptoms: black cohosh, red clover, dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng, soy, and kava. Wearing light-weight clothing, sleeping in a cooler room, and reducing stress may reduce the number of hot flushes. Exercise daily: The best activity is regular sustained aerobic exercise, such as regular swimming or jogging. Do yoga or meditation too. The relaxation techniques of yoga can teach you how to suppress part or all of your body's response to hot rushes. Manage stress: Stress can make menopause symptoms much worse. Include humor and laughter in your life. Laughing is good medicine. Get together with friends that are funny. Watch comedies. These are also very helpful: massage therapy, aromatherapy, and acupuncture. These can help handle most problems of menopause.

Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder at the same time,

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Karaikal
Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder...
Yes that can occur sometimes. Simultaneous presence of multiple Personality disorders (PDs) is a valid diagnosis, as per International Classification of Diseases and DSM manuals of psychiatric disorders registry. Such a person should be treated appropriately with psychotherapy and drugs as necessary. Usually such occasional multiple PDs occur from same cluster of PDs, eg. Dependent and anxious PDs from cluster C, narcissistic and borderline PDs from cluster B may co-exist. Comorbid Intercluster PDs eg. Paranoid PD (cluster A) with Depressive PD (cluster C) can also be seen in a same person. By the by PDs are the most common disease /disorder in humans, with about 1 in 3 (33%) expected to have 1 or more PDs causing distress to himself or his family members/loved ones, and liable to affect interpersonal relationships and net functional performance.

What is the causes of ocd diseases and how to treat it I'm suffering from sexual thoughts disorders what is its cause n how can I rid from this problem.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. OCD is a disorder and the causation is multifactorial. Genetics, envionmental influences, chemical changes in the brain etc result in certain neuronal circuits to become hyperactive - as a result of this certain thoughts and actions can become repetitive. In your case, we need to first confirm if this is indeed OCD that you are having. Then, depending upon the exact situation, medicines or CBT or a combination of the both will be needed. In your case, based on the limited information, it seems that medicines will be required. The medicines are safe, non-addictive and not intended to be sleep medicines. Dont worry, plenty of people with similar problems get well everyday and so will you. Take care!

Hello doctor. I'm 28years old woman. Well I got arranged marriage in 2011. It was ended up in divorce in 2012 due to parental interruption on both sides. Till now really don't have a clear clue why my life ended with divorce. Fine. It's all over now. I got second marriage in 2013 december. It was arranged marriage. Now the problem is there are so many misunderstandings between me and my husband. In one word I can he is not a understandable person. He always shouts at me even if I don't make mistakes. Ex: one day he asked me to go to my mom's home since he went out for office work. After he came back, he started shouting at me saying tat why did you go (using bad words. He beats me often without any reasons. He doesn't save money. He spends all his salary for restaurant food and going out (he says he doesn't like my cooking. He doesn't care for me anything. Abruptly he splits words. He hurts me a lot. Many times I had think tat I should have not accepted for divorce and my first husband is far better. Please suggest me how can I overcome this problems. I have talked to my husband many times privately for not to hurt me. No use though. No kids yet. Physically he involves with me good. No problems in sexual life.

Dear thara, you are living your husband for two years and two years are not at all enough to understand each other. Differences arise because of lack of understanding. You already had spoken to your husband about this. You are doing everything you can to tackle the problem, but your husband is not relenting. I can understand. I need to know more about your husband so as to provide you some tips to manage and change his behavior. Please contact me and provide as many details as possible. I will help you. Don't worry. Take care.

Hi Doctor, I am a boy of 22 years! Since childhood I was very coward and may be because of lack of outdoor activities I fell into homosexuality Trust me, I hate that stuff and want to come out from that under any circumstances. I am never into ass sex. Also I have stopped having sex in real. Thing with me is that I only gets attracted towards hot looking guys. How can I stop it? Also, my parents are looking forward for my marriage to a girl. I am very much worried about my & her life. I cannot share this with anyone around & so it falls me into depression day-by-day. I had been to a prostitute for testing my manhood, where I really failed. This made me feel very depressed. My dick just slept down when it was in her vagina without any ejaculation. Is there any medicine which can at least satisfy a girl and give her sexual pleasure? Any help/advise from you will be appreciated!

Dear lybrate user, marriage is not just about satisfying your girl sexually. Sex is one essential part of married life, but there is much more in marriage beyond sex. Firstly, I think it would be very important for you to understand your own sexuality. If you are getting attracted towards guys then you might be a gay. To assess yourself for this, you need to consult a counsellor/sexologist, who will help you to understand your sexual inclination and the causes and consequences. Secondly, please understand that we all have our own sexual preferences. Being gay is not a crime, though in india, it is not accepted in the eyes of law. Instead of trying to change or denying your sexual preference, try to understand your real feelings and accept them. If you remain in denial, you wil be dissatisfied. If you marry any girl, without really understanding your sexual preferences, you will not be able to make her happy. Going to prostitues for trying your" manhood" can be very dangerous. Instead, take some professional help. The counsellor/sexologist will help you to understand your needs and will also help you to deal with your parental pressure. Please do not take decision to get married under parental pressure. Seek professional at the earliest.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and ghutka addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help you.
