Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Anxiety can be of various types and can be part of one's personality, be a disorder in its own right or present as a part of other psychiatric disorders. There is no one best treatment for all of anxiety. SO we will need to see the exact nature and characteristics of the anxiety and come up with a personalized solution. Exercise, good sleep, meditation, breathing exercises, balanced diet and plenty of water are advisable. Medicines, counseling/ therapy may be needed. Please see a professional in person for a proper evaluation and management. I am aware that it is tempting to have a quick solution, but the reality is it is best to deal with these kinds of problems after a proper evaluation. Take care!

Hi, I'm Male 26 and I have been experiencing depression and anxiety since 5 months. I had a trauma in my life which I could not get out of my head. It was related to my career. I lost my job in Nov 2017 due to demoralization and that put me into shock because I did not have any backup at that point of time. I got so depressed and I even had suicide tendencies. I had serious health issues that time which included heart palpitation, vomiting, headache, anxiety, dizziness etc. I did not consult any Doctor for the same as I myself took control over all the problems. I used to get a feeling of being in such a rush like the world is gonna end the very next day. I was running after my career because I had lots of responsibilities on my shoulders. I'm engaged and I used to think about that a lot. I have gotten a new job now and I'm satisfied with it but I still get the weird feeling. I feel so low, I am unable to focus on things properly, I was the person who used to talk to people so much but now I don't feel like talking to them. I sometimes fumble while speaking. Please suggest what needs to be done to get it right. Will really much appreciate that. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. What you are describing seems to be a partially remitted form of a psychological condition. Many a time, these partially remitted forms remit completely on their own or in many, they tend to become chronic. The latter can get problematic. Therefore, a psychiatric evaluation is certainly in order. I am quite confident that your previous, normal personality will be restored with appropriate intervention. Take care!

I am not able to judge myself what I am going through. I can't stop thoughts racing all over in my mind specially for my life. I become optimism as well as pessimism at the same time. I usually tend to behave in front of everyone like everything is ok but unfortunately whenever I stay alone I can't stop crying pathetically and even sometimes laugh at the jokes on which no one even gives reaction and again I am the only one who become like a foolish person ever. I become so much talkative and want to discuss on any topic with anyone to stay out of stress but no one is able to get awkward behaviour. I had sleepless nights from last three years but 2016 was worst of all. Effects on my health are ridiculous. I don't know how but whenever I got anxiety attacks I guess or whenever I cried a lot feeling lost and without any hope I suffered from constipation a lot. I start drinking excessive of water or eating a lot whenever facing any kind of fear. This year due to constipation and my other health effects like feeling tired always or oversleeping the attendance also became very less. Even I have a very bad habit of biting skin at the side of the nails while thinking curiously about some or the other thing or being nervous at most of the times and specially whenever I study. I want to get rid of all this nonsense. Cannot lead my life like this further anymore.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. I think there is an underlying current of mood instability. This could be seen in a variety of conditions including personality styles like borderline personality and in more severe forms, in bipolar disorders. It seems that your problems are mostly in the personality domain but it is very difficult to make an accurate statement without seeing you. I suggest that you should meet a psychiatrist at the earliest and get a proper evaluation done so that the problem can be sorted out. Do not worry! People have much worser problems than this and get better. I am quite confident that with appropriate help you will get better. Take care!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. This seems to be an anxiety symptom and could be part of an anxiety disorder or other psychological condition. Although it can be treated with relative ease, we must first establish the proper diagnosis. We will need more details of your condition like how it started, since when is this happening, any other symptoms etc in order to suggest a more specific remedy. Treatment can be done in many different ways and are generally safe and effective. Take care!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. If neither partner has HIV, HIV cannot be created by having intercourse. If one of the partners has multiple partners, one might want to double check if he/ she is truly negative by repeating the test after a few weeks. Rarely, the test may be negative whereas the person is actually HIV positive. But if the person is truly negative, there is no question of transmission. Take care!

I am suffering ocd from last 5 years, earlier 2 year my condition was serious, but in last two years I only have problem when I leave my medicine, though the mg of my tablets is reduced. Currently my treatment is going in Agra. But my question is, Is their a need of any other treatment for​ me so that ,I can leave my medicine, is there any therapy which I should take so that my medicine will be permanently closed.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. If symptoms are controlled with medicines one must always remember that in certain people a phenomenon known as discontinuation related resistance is seen; that is the same medicine that was effective earlier does not work after a period of stopping the medicine followed by re-emergence of symptoms. So, one must be very cautious when thinking of stopping the medicines. The form of treatment that comes closest to your goal and may in some people allow one to gradually withdraw medicines are specialized form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy like exposure and response prevention, thought stopping, thought flooding, thought habituation and acceptance based therapies.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Yes, it is possible to prevent transmission of HIV from mother to child in a large proportion of people. Well established protocols for this are available and have been used for many years now. Most medium to large hospitals should have this facility. A number of medicines such as nevirapine etc have been used at various doses and combinations with varying rates of success. Consult your gynecologist in person for more information on this.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Numerous antidepressants are available that are effective for GAD. Anti- anxiety medicines such as buspirone are also effective for GAD. Both these groups are not addictive. There is no one medicine that is considered best. Different ones work well for different people. Considering the severity, dose and side effect profile, the medicine needs to be individualized to each patient. Take care!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. This certainly looks like something that needs attention. Counseling seems like a good place to start. If it is relatively mild, a few counseling sessions should sort out the matter. If needed, at a later stage, a psychiatrist's consultation may be considered. Please emphasize to your friend that he needs to meet people and talk to them even if he may not feel like doing so. He should also not neglect his food and sleep. If possible, adding physical exercise would be an excellent idea. Take care!

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!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. I think that is more than enough, there is no need to get it done again from a government hospital. I am sure you are aware of the window period and have got the test done after that, if not you must get it repeated once the window period is over. It may be useful to discuss the circumstances leading to this worry regarding HIV. It might seem that one needs to rule out the presence of an anxiety disorder. Take care!

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. We need to analyze various aspects of this situation. Ideally, it would be great if one were completely free from all medicines during pregnancy. But, OCD itself can also cause considerable difficulties to mother and the foetus. Therefore, adequate control of the OCD is also needed and important. Depending upon the severity, nature of symptoms, duration of illness and previous response to treatment, it may or may not possible to treat the OCD with CBT instead of medicines. If the medicines are needed, we must use less number of medicines as possible and at the least dose that is needed. I notice that you are on Daxid 100, uvox 100 and rexipra 10. If you are taking all three together, some reduction of medicines seems possible and likely, but will need a careful and detailed evaluation. The medicines listed above are not particularly damaging to the fetus but if it is possible to decrease or take some of them away, we must attempt to do that. Take care!

Hi, thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Phases of preparation like this are stressful to most people. Some people are able to handle while others may not be able to. While most people would experience stress to some extent atleast, some will develop an anxiety or depressive disorder under these circumstances. Superficially at least, it appears that something of this sort is happening with you. I think it may be better for you to seek help because this kind of state of mind will prevent you from properly preparing as well; poor results will further fuel your anxiety and create a vicious cycle. With treatment your anxiety will reduce, you will be able to concentrate and remember better and, even though you will still have the hurdle of exam to clear, it will appear much less intimidating. I hope you get better soon. Take care!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. You must definitely meet a psychiatrist. Why? For the simple reason that this is a known psychological problem. Part of the problem is that one feels that the threat is real and hence does not recognise the utility of a psychiatric intervention; but the reality is such an intervention is useful and invaluable! Besides these theoretical points, in my own practical experience we have treated a number of such clients. So not only should you not hesitate, rather you must seek help at the earliest to avoid unnecessary prolongation of suffering. Take care!

Sir my elder brother is addicted in drinking. Please can you suggest how we can get rid of this?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
There are many different ways of quitting drinking. First thing to understand is that there is no one magic pill that will cure him. Also, merely confining/ admitting him for few days or even months will not only not help but also aggravate the problem. Mixing medicines in food is also a bad idea as it will worsen existing relationships and is also unethical. Broadly, interventions can be divided into medicine based and non-medicine based. Non-medicine based interventions include counseling and psychotherapy such as MET and RPT which help to enhance will power, prevent relapse, make lifestyle changes and many more. Medicine based interventions can be broadly divided into four categories. The first group of medicines help to decrease the desire to drink. The craving from within is reduced, but not entirely abolished. Second group of medicines are used to control withdrawal symptoms like sleep problems, irritability, anger, tremors, anxiety, fits etc. A third group of medicines are used to treat the alcohol induced damage such as vitamin deficiencies, nerve damage, gastric ulcer, liver problems etc. A fourth group of medicines are occasionally used and are intended to produce a unpleasant 'reaction' if alcohol is taken. Many a time, it is the combination of many of the above measures that works best. Take care!

Hello Doctor, I am 23 years Old and I am a ca final student not able to give my exams due to this mental illness From past 16 months I am suffering from bad anxiety and depression but from past week my thoughts getting changed everyday earlier I was getting that everyone is talking about me or wants to kill me now I am getting that I want to kill others or I want to do some violative act or want to kill or hurt myself. Well yesterday I went to the psychiatrist and he has diagnosed me with OCD and prescribed me Paxidep CR 12.5 once in a day, Clonazepam 0.50 Mg 1 and half tablet a day and risperidone 2 mg Half medicine in the night I have start taking other medicines except risperidone as it is a anti psychotic Now please can you tell me what symptoms I am going through and should I take risperidone.

Hello Doctor, I am 23 years Old and I am a ca final student not able to give my exams due to this mental illness From...
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Let us look at your scenario systematically. First, what is the likely diagnosis? It is difficult to say with the limited information available, but if one were to conclude with this information, I would agree with the diagnosis that was assigned to you (OCD). Your doctor is not using risperidone as an antipsychotic here, but as an augmenting agent. The dose of risperidone is on the lower side and that further confirms his intentions. The use of risperidone when there is unsatisfactory improvement with an SSRI is well known and proven beyond doubt. But the question here is whether we can just have improvement with an appropriate dose of paxidep alone or not. The only way to get to know that is to try it without the risperidone with appropriate dose adjustments from time to time. A call regarding risperidone can be taken after a few weeks of treatment along these lines. Please understand that all of the above suggestions are for your information only and I have no intention to question or interfere with your doctor's line of treatment. Also, since I have not seen you, I am assuming that the diagnosis of OCD is accurate and you have previously not taken medicines for the same or previously did not have any psychiatric ailments. A number of psychiatric terms, diagnoses and medication classes are deceptively similar to words used in general english. For example the word obsession as used in english and as used in psychiatry are completely different. Similarly, a medicine that is called an antidepressant or an antipsychotic is not simply a medicine to be given in depression and psychosis only, but depending upon the dose and other medicines being used alongside, can have vastly different effects and can be used in many different conditions. For example, a medicine such as propranolol, depending upon the dose and formulation can be used in the treatment of migraine, BP, anxiety, heart disease, intra-abdominal bleeds, aggression and so on. So stay away from a simplistic interpretation of what a medicine is for and clarify with the doctor. Take care!

Hi, Thanks for writing in; welcome to the forum. Zapiz contains clonazepam and it can be addictive - both physically and psychologically. It is not recommended to be take for more than 4-6 weeks. What will happen eventually when you try to stop it is the original anxiety problem plus an additional problem of getting rid off addiction to zapiz. The correct treatment for an anxiety disorder is to treat it with psychotherapy alone or in combination with non-addictive medicines such as SSRIs, TCAs, atypical anti-depressants and so on. SO in your specific case, we will have to gradually reduce the zapiz and stop it. The rate of reduction will depend upon the severity of the anxiety as well as the duration for which you have taken it. In addition, based on a detailed evaluation, we will have to decide whether one of the above medicines is needed or we just manage with psychotherapy. In any case, exercise, proper sleep, yoga, meditation and breathing exercises are helpful and need to be done. So I suggest that you start these general measures if you are not already doing them and then meet a good psychiatrist in your area to sort out the medicine and therapy. You should be much better soon. Do not worry! Take care!
