Namashkar!

Me Doctor Rahul chandhok hon me ek single consultant psychiatrist hu ar me apni practice medrok clinic me ar fortress hosiptal Delhi NCR me.

Aj me ap sy bat karu ga depression ky bary me .wesy to depression ky bary me jan kari kafi sary YouTube channel ,akhbar ar patrekaaron ky madham sy ati rehti hy par me ye kehna chahu ga ky depression ko ly kr ky abi bhe bht sari bhayantia public ky maan me rehti hein. Ye esa mehsus kiya jata hy ke depression ki dawai ek bar shuru ho gai to fir wo chalti he rahy ge par esa bilkul nahi hy.

Depression ky ilaj me dawa ka lia jana kai baar bht zruri ho jata hy kiu ke agar admi bohat nirash ho jy to sirf samjhany sy wo nirasha sy nahi nikal pata. Kafi samy tk rehta h ya phir koi bari ghatna ho jati he to us me apky dimagh me neurochemical hein jesa ke serotonin wo kam ho jaty hein. Inky kam hony ky bad apko nirasha ,negativity, nind na ana ,ghabrahat rehna is prakaar ki samasiya hoti hein par agar ham apko samjhayn bhe to bhe apko sab kuch maloom hony ky bawajood ap is chakarview sy nahi nikal paty ar tab dawa k ilaj ki zrurat parti he.

Dosri is bat ki public me chinta rehti hy ke hamara wazan barh jy ga ya ham har waqt soty rahein gy. So esa he ky ye sambhav he ky kch ilaj me wazan barh jany ki sambhavna rehti h par har dawai k sath esa nahi hota h. Dosra agar wazan barhta hy to wazan ghaat bhe jata h. Teesri bat jahan tk rahi ke wayakti sota rehta hy esa purany zamany me jo dawaiyan istimal hoti thi unky sath tha magar ab jo naai dawaiyan ai hein us me is parakar ky side effects nahi dekhy jaty.Ziada tar mareez dawa chalny ky sath sath apna kam kar paty hein, apna daily routine follow kar paty hein ar samy py so kr samay py subah uth bhe paty hein.

Esa rehta hy ke depression me apka ilaj thek hony ky bawajud bhe chalta hy. Is lye kaai logo ko lagta h ke ek baar dawa shuru hogi to ye chalti rahy gii ar ye sahi nahi he. Depression me agar pehli bar kisi ko depression hva ho To wo 6 mahiney tk dawa khany ky bad dawa ko hatany ka pryat kiya jata hy par agar unhy anxiety ki samasiya hy ya koi personality issue hy tab aise me ho sakata hy kii dawa aur lambi chalay par ye bilkul wesa he hy ky jesa ham chashma pehnty hein tou hum ye tou ni kehty ky hamy chashma pehn'ny ki adat par gai.

Ham ye manty hein ky hamy chashma pehn'ny ki zrurat hy is liye ham chashma pehanty hein wesy he jesy apky sharir ko blood pressure ki ya diabetes ki dawa ki zrurat parhti, hy bilkul usi tarah kch wayaktio ko depression ki dawa ki bhe zrurat parti hy. Is liye usy swikaar karen ar apny ilaj ko bech me na rokain.

<br/>Hello friends. I am Dr Rahul Chandok. I am a senior consultant psychiatrist with the Fortis ...


Hello friends. I am Dr Rahul Chandok. I am a senior consultant psychiatrist with the Fortis group of hospitals. And I am having my own practice at my clinic, My home clinic in Faridabad.

Coming to today’s topic which is understanding OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. OCD, also known as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is affecting about 2% of the population at some point of time in their life which makes it 1 in 40 persons is going to have it. It is 2 to 3 times more common than other chronic psychiatric disorder like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. So every person has a brain and I believe the brain thinks. When it comes to OCD we have to understand that the thinking becomes affected. When the thinking is normal, it is under the person’s control and is as per his or her will. But when the brain gets under stress there is a neurochemical called serotonin which becomes less. And because of that the thinking becomes automatic. Thoughts come on their own, that are uncontrollable, unwilling, they are excessive. Person gets them repetitively. And they are negative. The person also understands they are baseless. But because of the fear which arises out of that, the person becomes excessively anxious. And to reduce this anxiety of fear the person does certain acts which suppose the person gets a doubt then the person does checking, suppose the person has a thought that might be the hands are dirty or the person is not clean enough. Or the germs will affect him or her. The person repetitively does washing. If the person is not able to do any activity to reduce anxiety, then the person starts avoiding things. And if the person is not able to do any of these the person gets angry. If all these persists for a period of time, then the person might go into depression.

The message which I would like to extend is that OCD is definitely treatable. You have to understand how and what is happening. We have to correct the level of serotonin which is possible through the use of medication which are definitely in today’s times are much better what we had earlier.

Side effects are very less and the results are pretty quick. And yes we definitely use therapy work to make the person understand or to fight OCD or what to do with the thoughts. The trick is that we have to learn to ignore these thoughts because at some of their lives every person gets negative thoughts but they are able to ignore them But a person with OCD is stuck so OCD is definitely treatable take help of the doctor or psychiatrist. Don’t be afraid of the medication and learn how to tackle it.

You can either contact me for treatment at my various work places or at my clinic. Or you can contact me through Lybrate for its management. Thank you.

Depression - Signs To Look For In A Person!

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Faridabad
Depression - Signs To Look For In A Person!

Happiness and sadness are part and parcel of life. Some things make us smile while others make us cry. While life is full of mixed emotions, being persistently sad could be a sign of depression. It is a clinical condition that needs treatment just like a fever or any other sickness.

Depression is a common mental ailment that can affect children and adults of both sexes. This is characterized by a feeling of sadness, worthless and helplessness that lasts for more than 2 weeks. Other symptoms of depression include:

  1. Loss of interest in events and activities
  2. Social withdrawal
  3. Outbursts of irritation and frustration over small matters
  4. Sleep disturbances
  5. Tiredness
  6. Loss of appetite
  7. Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
  8. Shorter attention span
  9. Unexplained headaches or backaches

Though the exact cause of depression is still unknown, there are many factors that could trigger depression:

  1. Fluctuating hormones: This is a very common cause of depression. This may occur during pregnancy or after delivery.
  2. Thyroid problems and menopausePeople with thyroid issues and women going through menopause often face the problem of depression. In some cases, a change in how neurotransmitters behave inside the brain could cause depression.
  3. Genetics: It has been observed that 40% of depression cases have a genetic link. People with close relatives who suffer from depression may also suffer from the same condition.
  4. Traumatic events: People who have a traumatic past such as a history of physical or sexual abuse, the death of a loved one or a difficult relationship could also trigger depression.
  5. Alcohol and substance abuse: Excessive drinking and other substance abuse have been closely linked to depression.
  6. Other factors: Depression can begin at any age and men are at a higher risk of suffering from this condition as compared to women. This may be because women often seek help in the early stages of depression.

People with low self-esteem and a pessimistic outlook on life have a high risk of being depressed. Treatment for cancer, heart disease and other such chronic illnesses as well as certain types of medication could also contribute to depression. 

Symptoms of depression vary from one patient to another. Hence, they can be difficult to diagnose in the early stages. Treatment typically includes medication, counselling, group therapy and a change in lifestyle habits. For example, it is imperative for depression patients to step outside their comfort zone and interact with others. For this, they may consider joining a hobby class. Regular exercise is also important as it increases production of serotonin and gives the person an opportunity to get out of the house. When it comes to depression, remember, it is very important for the patient to be supported by family and friends.

Ways To Increase Your Concentration!

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Faridabad
Ways To Increase Your Concentration!

ADHD, CDD, short-term memory loss, forgetfulness, insomnia and so many more terminologies we would have come across very often. They all seem to have evolved from a common origin and that is concentration issues. Have you pondered on these questions!! Why can’t it be easy to concentrate? Why can’t it be easy to remember everything? If yes, then read on to know more.

Concentrate! Focus! Pay attention! These are not just words but one huge and complicated process in itself. Many children and as well as adults often develop this issue wherein they find extremely difficult to concentrate.

Science behind concentration issues: When an individual performs a single task; for example reading a book, the image of what he is seeing hits the retina. From the retina, the nerve fibres carry the image to the brain which stimulates the brain cells to fire an action potential. The signal from here moves to the thalamus and proceeds to the visual cortex. This signal activates locus coeruleus which is a brain stimulant. It targets the particular area of the brain becoming the deciding factor as to how one responds to a stimulus, which in this case is an image. When there is deregulation of the locus coeruleus, it is then that a person develops disorders like ADHA, anxiety, depression, insomnia and others.

Factors influencing concentration:
Concentration is a skill that requires you to prioritize your senses while doing any work. It is an ability to block out distractions.

  • Dedication to the task
  • Interest in the task
  • One’s ability to complete the task
  • Physical and emotional state
  • Conducive environment with few distractions.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and concentration deficit disorder (CDD)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and concentration deficit disorder (CDD) are the two predominant concentration issues. The first one is more common among the children while the latter is observed in mostly the adults. Any individual with ADHD or CDD can show abnormalities in their behavior and social life.

ADHD individuals tend to be forgetful and face problems sticking to one task and may even display excessive fidgeting. CDD individuals tend to be lethargic, move slowly and have trouble in staying alert. Adults may become socially withdrawn and exhibit slow information processing.

Solutions for concentration issues:
Concentration issues require a lot of time to be overcome. You can try to figure out what causes the distractions and avoid them as much as possible by refocusing your mind only on what you are doing. You can give yourself timers which comprise of “distraction time” and “focus time”. This strategy helps if one’s mind is actively processing other things. You may also create subtasks by listing the things you need to do and then ruling out one by one once you accomplish them. Always breathe better and try for long inhalation and exhalation. This helps to bring down your anxiety levels which hinder the concentration.

Though the above-mentioned strategies are just to help you improve your concentration they are not the ultimate cure for any of the issues. Every individual is unique and sometimes accepting oneself can solve many complications as it reduces the need for unnecessary thinking. Always bear positive thoughts in your mind as it will act as a driving source.

Can Panic Attacks Happen Just "Out Of The Blue"?

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Faridabad
Can Panic Attacks Happen Just "Out Of The Blue"?

Panic attacks can debilitate a person greatly. The panic or anxiety attacks can be extremely powerful and intense, can vary depending on the severity of the attack. Such people lose self-composure. In extreme cases, they cut themselves off from the outside world and recoil into their safe zone (Agoraphobia).

Panic attacks, should, by no means, be confused with depression. These attacks can be essentially divided into three phases; the start phase, it then reaches the pinnacle or the zenith, before sliding down (fades away). The duration of a panic attack can vary from long to very long periods. The whole experience can leave a person depressed, traumatized and drained out (physically and emotionally). A timely medical assistance can prove to be extremely fruitful.

Panic attacks- its causative, signs and symptoms

 A panic attack, can, indeed, come out of the blue (unexpectedly). Extreme emotional turmoil or anxiety can trigger such an attack. An over-excited nervous system might turn out to be the wrecker in chief, throwing life in jeopardy. A person might be unprepared to deal with such a situation. Though extremely difficult, the best thing would be to try and relax. The attack is just an extreme state of mind, an abstract feeling that can never come true. It will pass off soon. Panicking will only pile onto your agony. Identifying the associated symptoms can prove to be effective. 

Some of the important symptoms associated with pain attacks include:

  • A feeling of breathlessness, suffocation and dizziness.
  • The palms appear to be sweaty.
  • A person may complain of uneasiness or chest pain
  • Increased palpitations are quite common during panic attacks.
  • A person might experience severe chills or heat flushes. 
  • Twitching and trembling of the muscles are often observed during the attacks.
  • An intense fear of death or going insane grips the person completely.
  • Hands, legs, arms begin to tingle.
  • During anxiety attacks, a person loses the reasoning ability.

Few short-term behavioural therapies can be of great help. Meditation, yoga and certain breathing practices can effectively ward off physical and mental fatigue. CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a popular technique used to deal with panic attacks. This technique primarily emphasizes on the present conditions and factors resulting in panic and ways to minimize or completely eliminate the attacks.

Treatment-

Treatment can help reduce the intensity and frequency of your panic attacks and improve your function in daily life. The main treatment options are

One or both types of treatment can be recommended, depending on the severity of your panic disorder, your history, and whether you have access to therapists who have special training in panic disorders.

Medications can help reduce symptoms associated with panic attacks as well as depression if that's an issue for you. Various types of medication have been shown to be effective in managing symptoms of panic attacks, including:

  1. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). 
  2. Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).

OCD - Know All About It!

OCD stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It is a disease where obsessions lead to repetitive behavior or compulsions. In this mental disease, people think that they need to keep on checking things on a repeat mode due to very strange fears and obsessions. People affected by this disease cannot control either their thoughts or their activities for more than a short span of time. The common things that people affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder do repeatedly are washing their hands, checking the time, checking if the door is locked properly, counting of things. It is a type of anxiety disorder which negatively affects the day to day life of the patient. Let us discuss the symptoms, causes, and diagnosis of OCD to know about the disease clearly.

The Symptoms of OCD
People affected by this disease might experience anxiety at a greater level that leads to compulsive behaviors, hyperactivity and impulsivity is a common symptom in the patients. They keep on repeating their own words a number of times. The symptoms also include isolation from the society and trying to live alone. Agitation is also a symptom of the disease. Checking the time, washing their hands, cleaning the place, again and again, are some of the activities that they repeatedly do. Other symptoms include depression, fear. These are the common symptoms that are noticed in the people affected by OCD.

The Causes of OCD 
The causes of OCD depend on neurological factors along with genetic, behavioral, cognitive and environmental factors as well. If someone in the family had OCD then there is a chance that you might also be affected by this disorder. Research says that the brain functions differently in those people. Though, the exact causes of OCD are still unknown. If a person experiences some event that seemed unlikely to them, the activities of the event might be triggered in their brain which can also cause the person to be affected by the disorder.

The Diagnosis of OCD
A physical examination may be done to rule out the chances of other related diseases. Then, lab tests are carried out for further details that are required. But a person affected by OCD requires talking to other people and socialization. It is always advisable to consult a doctor and treat the patient with his medical knowledge for better treatment. Do not take the help of any medications without consulting a doctor.

OCD can occur in both males and females and at any age. The treatment of OCD may or may not be successful. It depends on the condition of the patient entirely. OCD patients need the support of their family to recover soon and properly. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Understanding All About Depression!

Depression is a serious medical illness that is characterized by prolonged periods of sadness and feeling blue for weeks or months together. This feeling is often associated with withdrawal from activities, lack of energy and low self-esteem. These feelings persist and interfere with daily life so much that it becomes highly difficult to carry out their tasks.

Causes of Depression
There is no single cause for depression and it may get triggered by various factors which include:

  1. Biological factors – Some types of depression run in families suggesting a hereditary risk
  2. Abuse - A past traumatic event of physical, mental or sexual abuse can increase the vulnerability to clinical depression at a later point of time in life
  3. Medications – Certain medications tend to induce symptoms of depression
  4. Conflict – As a result of personal conflicts or disputes with friends or family, depression may develop
  5. Death or Loss – Grief over the death of a loved one increases the risk of depression
  6. Substance Abuse – Almost 30% of people with substance abuse have major or clinical depression
  7. Environmental Factors – Social isolation or a normal response to stressful events can lead to depression

Symptoms of Depression
Clinical depression is characterized by the onset of the following symptoms:

  1. It is natural to feel down at times, but if this mood lingers on day after day for a long time it is a main sign of depression
  2. Physical symptoms – fatigue, insomnia, excessive sleep, persistent body aches like headaches, cramps or digestive problems that do not ease with proper treatment
  3. Changes in Appetite and weight
  4. Difficulty in concentrating and making effective decisions
  5. Withdrawal from daily activities that were previously enjoyed
  6. Talking about death or suicide
  7. Agitation and restlessness
  8. Feelings of worthlessness or guilt due to past failings

Treatments for Depression
Some of the major treatments for clinical depression are outlined below:

  1. Psychotherapy - From behavioral therapy to interpersonal therapy there are several talk therapies that can be undertaken to minimize the severity of depressive symptoms and manage depression. These therapies are an active collaboration between the therapists and their patients that seek to reinforce a positive environment to help faster recovery.
  2. Hospitalization – Required for serious cases of depression where the patient may have attempted suicide and accordingly therapy is given
  3. Medications – Antidepressants are prescribed by physicians to help improve overall mood
  4. Electroconvulsive Therapy – For severe and chronic depression symptoms, the last resort of therapy involves shock treatments with safe practice
  5. Self-Help Methods – One can also seek depression oriented support groups that allow the individual to socialize and be with others who are facing the same problem. There are several online support groups as well with virtual assistance at stressful times.

Namashkar!

Me Doctor Rahul chandhok hon me ek single consultant psychiatrist hu ar me apni practice medrok clinic me ar fortress hosiptal Delhi NCR me.

Aj me ap sy bat karu ga depression ky bary me .wesy to depression ky bary me jan kari kafi sary YouTube channel ,akhbar ar patrekaaron ky madham sy ati rehti hy par me ye kehna chahu ga ky depression ko ly kr ky abi bhe bht sari bhayantia public ky maan me rehti hein. Ye esa mehsus kiya jata hy ke depression ki dawai ek bar shuru ho gai to fir wo chalti he rahy ge par esa bilkul nahi hy.

Depression ky ilaj me dawa ka lia jana kai baar bht zruri ho jata hy kiu ke agar admi bohat nirash ho jy to sirf samjhany sy wo nirasha sy nahi nikal pata. Kafi samy tk rehta h ya phir koi bari ghatna ho jati he to us me apky dimagh me neurochemical hein jesa ke serotonin wo kam ho jaty hein. Inky kam hony ky bad apko nirasha ,negativity, nind na ana ,ghabrahat rehna is prakaar ki samasiya hoti hein par agar ham apko samjhayn bhe to bhe apko sab kuch maloom hony ky bawajood ap is chakarview sy nahi nikal paty ar tab dawa k ilaj ki zrurat parti he.

Dosri is bat ki public me chinta rehti hy ke hamara wazan barh jy ga ya ham har waqt soty rahein gy. So esa he ky ye sambhav he ky kch ilaj me wazan barh jany ki sambhavna rehti h par har dawai k sath esa nahi hota h. Dosra agar wazan barhta hy to wazan ghaat bhe jata h. Teesri bat jahan tk rahi ke wayakti sota rehta hy esa purany zamany me jo dawaiyan istimal hoti thi unky sath tha magar ab jo naai dawaiyan ai hein us me is parakar ky side effects nahi dekhy jaty.Ziada tar mareez dawa chalny ky sath sath apna kam kar paty hein, apna daily routine follow kar paty hein ar samy py so kr samay py subah uth bhe paty hein.

Esa rehta hy ke depression me apka ilaj thek hony ky bawajud bhe chalta hy. Is lye kaai logo ko lagta h ke ek baar dawa shuru hogi to ye chalti rahy gii ar ye sahi nahi he. Depression me agar pehli bar kisi ko depression hva ho To wo 6 mahiney tk dawa khany ky bad dawa ko hatany ka pryat kiya jata hy par agar unhy anxiety ki samasiya hy ya koi personality issue hy tab aise me ho sakata hy kii dawa aur lambi chalay par ye bilkul wesa he hy ky jesa ham chashma pehnty hein tou hum ye tou ni kehty ky hamy chashma pehn'ny ki adat par gai.

Ham ye manty hein ky hamy chashma pehn'ny ki zrurat hy is liye ham chashma pehanty hein wesy he jesy apky sharir ko blood pressure ki ya diabetes ki dawa ki zrurat parhti, hy bilkul usi tarah kch wayaktio ko depression ki dawa ki bhe zrurat parti hy. Is liye usy swikaar karen ar apny ilaj ko bech me na rokain.

Usy asal me nind ki zrurat he kam mehsus hoti h. Usy lagta h ky wo 2 ghanty so kr hi itna taro taza hogya jitna ky wo 8 ghanty so kr hva. Wo 2 ghanty sony ku bad apny kariya-karab shuru kar deta h ,baki logo ko jagana shuru kar deta h.Apny kam waghera shuru kar deta h. Usy lagta h ky agr mery pas itni taqat hy to kiu na abi sy he sb kch shuru kar dia jy. Usy esa mehsus hota hy ky mery pas bht rupia pesa h me kuch bhe khareed sakta hu ya koi bhe political activity kar ky jeet sakta hu. Boht sary log apni esi bemari ki episode me jisy ham mania kehty hein kai bar election tk lar jaty h ar jb unki episode thek hota hy tb unhy pta chlta h ky ham ny kitni apna nuqsan karva liya.Is me jo smjhny wali bat hy wo ye hy ky bipolar disorder ek anu-vanshik disorder h. Ye kai bar pariwaro me chalta hy is liye ye boht zruri ho jata hy ke jb ap is ka ilaj karvayn ya koi doctor apko boly kii apky mareez ko bipolar disorder h to wo ilaj poora karvayn is me jo dawaiya istimal ki jati hein Unhy mood stabilizers kaha jata hy yani ki ye man ki awastha ko na to udaasi me jany deti hein ar na he tezi me jany deti hein. Is wja sy inhy lamba chalana parta hy warna jesy he ye dawai chotti hy kai bar episodes dobara hony ky chances bany rehty h. Dono he parikar ky episodes is me dekhy jaty hein, udaasi bhe ar teji bhe jisy ham mania kehty h. Dawai is me mukhiye role play karti hy kiu ke dimagh jo imbalance ho jata h usy dawa ky duwara he balance me rakha ja sakta hy ar ye lamby samay tk chalti h. Agr koi bipolar ka mareez apny substance abuse karta hy yani ky nasheely padarto ka sewan karta hy jesa ky bhaang ,charas,ganja,sharab to usky episode ky bar bar hony ar sath he sath shaak ki samasiya ky chances bhe barh jaty hein. Is lye in sabhi padarto sy dur rahiye par agar ap apni dawa properly lyty hy ar doctor sy milty rehty hein to ap utny he achy reh sakty hein jitna kii koi ar wayakti ar koi bhe ya nahi jan pay ga ki ap ko esa koi rog hy.
