Depression - Medications Play a Key Role in Treatment

Depression - Medications Play a Key Role in Treatment

What are antidepressants and mood elevators?

Often depression or mood changes are caused by the imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Anti-depressants or mood elevators are medications that are prescribed to patients with depression to alleviate their symptoms. Anti-depressants are not solely used for the treatment of depression, it is also prescribed in other psychiatric conditions which includes anxiety disorders, social anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), dysthymia (mild chronic depression) etc.

With time, the use of anti-depressants has been on the rise. Although, anti-depressants do not cure your depression, it relieves the symptoms of the same. Anti-depressants come in various types. The first one you try may not benefit you; however you must consult your doctor and find the right choice of medication for your condition.

Anti-depressant adherence
Non-adherence to anti-depressants can have major consequences on your health. It also majorly contributes to the under treatment of anxiety and depression in maximum cases in the population. The reasons why people do not comply with their therapy or treatment are various; forgetting to take the medicine being the primary one. Other factors that contribute to non-adherence of anti-depressants include-

  1. Fear of addiction
  2. High cost of medications
  3. Fear of drug-induced sexual dysfunction
  4. Delayed onset of action of the medication
  5. Poor instructions and protocols given by the doctor
  6. Fear of side effects

Adherence to the medication with proper guidance from the doctor has seen to decrease the symptoms of depression in the patients, leading them get back to their normal life. Under-treatment of depression can become fatal. If the depression escalates, suicidal tendencies can follow. Apart from these, suddenly stopping the medication has been associated with withdrawal symptoms which can get fatal in severe cases. In recent times, depression has become a common problem with the rise of fatalities caused by depression. As important as it may be to consult a doctor to get your symptoms diagnosed and get the right treatment, it is of equal importance that one adheres to the therapy and abides by the guidelines.

Alzheimer's - An Overview!

Alzheimer's - An Overview!

With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.

Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.

Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:

  1. Being confused about places, people, and times
  2. Inability to find the right words during conversations
  3. Regular objects are misplaced
  4. Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
  5. Mood swings
  6. Personality changes
  7. Inability to organise thoughts
  8. Not able to make the right decisions
  9. Repetitive talks and actions
  10. Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
  11. Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
  12. Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
  13. Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)

Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and poor lifestyle choices.

Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.

Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Good Morning ~ Thank you for your question and depression can manifest in many forms and you are having problems with negative feelings of absence of love from your husband. I believe that you will be able to find the answers to your questions if you can elaborate the same during a counseling session during which time, we can also determine your ability to take advice and also suggest appropriate medications in that context. Look forward to hearing from you.

This question is to a qualified, certified,experienced and competent psychiatrist only. I am 58 years old and Schizophrenic since 1987. I was put on various medications and I responded to them very well and hence there is a lot of relief now. Currently, I am on only one anti-psychotic viz Sizodon Forte 0-0-1 and there is tremendous relief. Of late, my body is showing showing side effects, probably due to the fact that I no longer need powerful anti-psychotics. Now, I don't have hallucinations & delusions. I have two questions here. (a) There are thought disturbances like, always preoccupied with thoughts, and get aggressive thoughts because I am not fully occupied. Is this due to the fact, that I am not working and absence of work is rust to the month Is this a positive symptom of Schizophrenia? (b) I have stammering since childhood and necessary action was taken by a speech therapist and now I speak almost fluently. Because of this, I developed inferiority complex and hence was not socializing, staying aloof from friends and relatives etc. I have this problem even now. My personal hygiene is good. Is this a negative symptom of Schizophrenia? Kindly answer to these two questions, as I can impress on my psychiatrist whom I am visiting next week. Thanks.

Good Morning ~ I appreciate your questions, and also appreciate the fact that you are taking and tolerating your medications with minimal side effects so far. I believe you need appreciation also for having asked questions on this forum. A) Though disturbances like preoccupation with certain types of thoughts and aggressive thoughts are certainly positive symptoms of schizophrenia and may be decreased by non-medication methods like yoga and pranayama or by medication augmentation of your current medications. Like you have said yourself, involving yourself in productive activity may also decrease the symptoms to the point that you may become comfortable without having aggressive thoughts. B) Stammering is a common problem and occurs in 1-2% of the general population. Most likely stammering is anxiety related and gets better over time or with less anxiety. Anxiety can be reduced with either medications or with counseling i.e. Anxiety reducing techniques. Exposing yourself to anxiety provoking situations will reduce your anxiety gradually. Counseling may be helpful in this case. Stammering is separate from schizophrenia. Look forward to hearing from you.

Good Morning ~ Most men who are not circumcised have skin over the top of their penises. That is OK. The skin should be retractable and the surface of the organ underneath usually comes in contact with the vaginal membrane during sexual activity. The above description does not related to premature ejaculation and you would need to provide more information so as for us to be able to suggest appropriate recommendations. Look forward to hearing from you.

Good Morning ~ There is NO such thing as the "right quantity of alcohol" to be taken before or during dinner as a routine for better digestion (if that is what you are suggesting by dilation) and or health. Alcohol in any amount may be harmful to health, however it may be culturally acceptable to drink alcohol with food in certain cultures. I would like to know more about you before giving you recommendations and that would certainly be a private conversation since that would involve cultural issues as well. Look forward to hearing from you.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
I want to increase my sex time. I think I have problem of early ejaculation. I want to increase my sex duration.
Good ​Morning, Sexual problems are quite common especially early during your marital life. Early ejaculation usually gets better with time after the first sexual activity, i.e. When you become better at sex. To increase the sex duration one has to usually wait after having the first sexual encounter. Sometimes anxiety and partner problems also lead to early ejaculation. If that is the case then you may need medications. Using the stop and start technique and squeeze technique may also be helpful. However if you need professional help kindly use the option to consult privately so that any other issues may come to light which may need treatment. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of ​Lybrate.

Good Morning ~ If your cholesterol level is high then you might need to be on medications that lower your cholesterol. There are studies linking high cholesterol levels to low levels of libido and erectile dysfunction. I believe you testosterone, although in the normal range, is towards the lower end of normal. If your libido is not better with medications that are already prescribed by a doctor you need to get supplementary testosterone in the form of pills or injections. Losing weight may also be helpful since your BMI is quite high and in the obese category. I would think that you might need a private consultation so that I can get some more missing information and to be able to help you with prescription medications or with corroborative data to help with diagnosis and management as necessary.

Good Morning ~ If you have a problem with frequent hunger you need to get so basic lab work done so that you make sure that you do not have the most common condition associated with this symptom, i.e. Diabetes. If your Fasting and Post-Prandial blood sugars are normal as well as HbA1c within the normal range then you may need to get yourself checked out by a psychiatrist to rule out other causes of such binge eating, including but not limited to eating disorders, anxiety disorders, depression, ocd, etc. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi I am suffering from Schizophrenia I've started doing pranayama for last 5 days I'm better also I really enjoy doing pranayama I'm not obsessed with pranayama Can I do pranayama twice a day 1 hour in morning n 45 minutes in evening Give me a positive response.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ Yes, doing pranayama is good for health overall and not just mental health or physical health only. I would recommend that you continue your habit of the same. However if you are suffering from schizophrenia, medications can be extremely helpful and this may have an additive effect to the pranayama or other technique that you may be following.

Good Afternoon ~ It will take time to heal and the quality of pain usually changes as scar tissue forms and the healing process is complete. Residual pain if persistent and hampering your daily activities needs to be treated after a thorough surgical evaluation and if negative medications for sensory neuronal pain is warranted. I would be of certain help at that time if you need prescription medications, however make sure you have done your homework before you come to a neuropsychiatrist. Look forward to hearing from you.

I can prescribe medications based on your symptoms on a private paid consultation which will be completely confidential and therefore can reveal more information during that time.

Good Morning ~ All those vitamins have been tried in psychotic depression, however very few have worked in isolation and none in the kind of depression you describe. It is always good to get opinion that is very impartial and if you believe that you will find help here, you have. I, as a psychiatrist, think that you need to be on medications over and above vitamin supplements to be able to tide over psychotic depression. I hope this helps and you make the effort to pay for an appointment online and put your thoughts on paper so that I can help with the right kind of treatment for you.

Good Morning ~ Anger management is not only a bane for some but is also debilitating to the point that they do not function on a daily basis due to the reaction that they get from others. I am sure you have come to realize this as well. Anger can be easily managed with medications and therapy and I encourage you to pay and book an appointment so that you will be able to have a good quality of life without anger and better relationships.

Good Morning ~ I am so glad you are seeking help for your wife. I am sure that if it were not for your your wife would have been lost due to paranoid schizophrenia. I also realize how hard it is to deal with someone with paranoid schizophrenia and realize that your problems as a care giver are immense. I believe after having read your description of the medications regimen and her symptoms, I am sure you need second opinion and you are at the right place. A small tweak in the medications that you use along with the help of a psychiatrist may make a large difference in your symptoms. I am sure you will also benefit from a paid appointment as it will not be in a public forum and you can get prescriptions for your wife if I believe she would need some medication changes.
