My sister is 30 years old and unmarried. She was a very good student in school time but later went into depression so could not do well after school, failed to crack competitive exams and later also could not do well in studies. Lately she fell for a guy in her office thinking that he also loved her ,but he soon got married to someone else. All this while she had got too much involved in worshipping and all and started to believe in too much superstition and fiction. She has declined to get married to somebody else and now isn't even willing to finish her studies. And feels very hopeless about life. Nowadays she has become very verbally violent with the family members and blames everyone over one thing or the other. And listens to almost nobody. And also not willing to go to a psychiatrist or a psychologist as she thinks that they won't be able to help her. Please advise on how to help her.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. This is not an uncommon situation. It is clear that a psychiatric evaluation is warranted and will likely result in a diagnosis also. Very often, people do not want to visit a psychiatrist because of various assumptions - I can not be helped; I will be admitted; I will not be treated with respect; I will be given medicines with side effects; I will have to take medicines for life etc. But when they do meet a good psychiatrist, many of these assumptions turn out to be false and the person becomes willing to visit again. Therefore, I think what needs to be done here is to ask her to meet a psychiatrist once and see how things go. She can be reassured that no medicines/ admission / procedure will be done without her consent and if she does not like the interaction, she need not come again. Very often, this approach is very effective. Hope that answers the question. Take care!

I am a 54 years old divorced male living all alone. Children well settled. No liability. After my mother expired I went into depression and also consulted a doctor for the same who advised me nexito 5 and 10 mg morning and evening along with modalert 50 mg. But as of date I have lost interest in everything and feel totally drained out mentally. The medication was ok in the starting but of no use now. Visited the doctor many times but to no positive results. I don't have any suicidal thoughts but have lost interest in everything. I do take lonazep .5 mg at night. Going to gym regularly in morning. Have lost all interest in work and don't feel like working any more. Please advise. I stay in New Delhi.

Dear sir, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Depression is a complex entity with many different forms and presentations. Certain aspects of depression respond to medicines, while certain others to psychotherapy, and still others to exercise/ diet/ sleep etc. Very often, one antidepressant is initially effective/ partially effective and then loses efficacy. The correct thing to do in such a scenario is to re-evaluate the diagnosis and if that is accurate, shift to a different medicine based on the detailed history/ evaluation and combine it with psychotherapies such CBT. It is great that you are exercising regularly. I assume that blood tests including thyroid and vitamins are normal. The above suggestions will help you to proceed further. Take care!

I'm a 42 year old female. I'm forgetting things very quickly n frequently. I find difficulty in remembering amount I traded the previous day. What can I do?

Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Forgetting may happen due to a number of causes, some of which are completely reversible and some partially so. The latter will benefit from early intervention. First, we need to assess the extent of forgetfulness in detail and see over what period of time this has developed. We also need to see if any other brain functions are affected or not. Then we proceed towards looking for a cause. Baseline tests like hemogram, RFT, LFT, RBS, thyroid profile, Vitamin B 12, folate are necessary. Based on these reports, pointers towards neurological, psychiatric or psychological causes can be identified. If needed only then additional tests can be carried out. Overall, considering that you are only 41, possibility of more severe diseases seems less likely, In any case get in touch with a professional for a proper evaluation and management. Take care!

Experts I am a guy of 27 from new Delhi India. 2 weeks ago on 12th of May I had a protected sex with a masseuse in a spa. I used a condom all the time. And I'm 99% sure it didn't break since when I pulled it out my semen was still inside the condom. All of it took about 10 mins. Now I'm in the third week and I'm experiencing a little fatigue and cold (running nose) and sore throat. I believe these symptoms are referred to early symptoms for hiv. But I need your advise in this. I need to ask a few questions 1. What is the risk level of transmission under these circumstances? 2. Should I go for hiv test? I'm really worried and need your support urgently Thanks.

Hi, thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. The symptoms you are having, in all likelihood, is not related to HIV. Get a p24 antigen test done to relieve yourself of this worry. Also get STD panel of tests done to check for other bacterial/ viral infections just to make sure and feel safe (as HIV is not the only STD). In all likelihood, all of these tests must turn out normal. Based on the details provided by you, there is little to no risk of transmission. Take care!

I am married from last 2 years. Also, I am suffering from Premature ejaculation. Sperm falls before successful intercourse. I want to know is there any way my wife can conceive the baby. If yes How? What will be the cost of it and in which hospital this can be done?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. The first and the simplest way to approach the problem you are facing is to treat the premature ejaculation. I am not aware if you have had treatments for this in the past. Either ways, a look into the PME problem should make things very much better. We have people coming with this problem all the time and getting better. Hope that answers your question. Take care!

I was taking anti depressant for 7 days. But still I have headaches. Should I consult a doctor once due to the increase of serotonin levels?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Was the medicine started as per directions of a psychiatrist? Headache is a common side effect of many anti-depressants if started at a higher dose. Also, headache could be due to other causes also. If headache was there before start of medicines, obviously other causes are involved. Very often headache is a symptom of anxiety/ depression. So I think an evaluation by a psychiatrist is warranted. Hope that answers your question. Take care!

Is TSM (The Sinclair Method) safe for alcohol de-addiction. How good is Naltrexone to use as specified in that for opiate blocker/ remove addiction. How and where can I be guided for its use. Do I need to use Naltrexone under medical supervision.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Naltrexone is just one of the many anti-craving medications used in the treatment of alcohol use disorders. Anti-craving medicines are one of the multiple groups of medicines that are used. It is also important to understand that medication is only one part of the treatment or 'de-addiction' Naltrexone definitely needs to be prescribed under medical supervision and monitoring. Based on a detailed evaluation, we must first see if naltrexone would suit you or other anti-craving medicines would be better. Also, the evaluation will guide us to decide whether other medicines/ psychotherapy/ lifestyle changes/ medical interventions/ tests are needed or not. Most psychiatrists in Delhi prescribe naltrexone. Hope that answers your question. Take care!

My mom is suffering from depression from last 10 months. I had dropped my mba and then resigned from my job after she had a cardiac arrest and at home now to take care of her. I will be restarting with my mba from 1st june. I feel sleeplessness and get worried daily usually in the night time. How do I know whether I am depressed or not? I really need help urgent. My mood is always bad in the night time. Due to some gastric problem I had consulted a doctor who helped me with an antacid medicine and anti depressant. He said the gastric problem is recurring because of your mental stress and anxiety. Please help what is wrong with me I am just not able to figure out.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. You are obviously having problems adjusting to the troubled circumstances in your family/ life. There are certain symptoms of depression that you are reporting, but it is not clear if you have a depressive disorder or what is known as an adjustment disorder. This is important because antidepressant medicines have no role in adjustment disorder whereas they may have a role in a depressive disorder. Therefore, it is important to have a proper evaluation by a psychiatrist. It is tempting to have a quick, short cut kind of a solution and is only human and natural. But in the interest of your career and long term perspective, an evaluation by a mental health professional is certainly warranted and advisable. Do not neglect food and drink. Practise some form of exercise for atleast 20-30 minutes 4-5 days a week. These will serve as first aid measures. Take care!

I feel lonely inspite being around people most of the times. I get aggressive very soon and react to things angrily. I don't pay attention to my surroundings and keep being lost in my own random thoughts. Is it normal?

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. It seems that some kind of an emotional problem is present. Some of this may or may not be part of your personality, but it appears that atleast some part of this is a disorder, that can be improved significantly with professional help. With the brief description provided by you, it is very difficult to exactly tell what the problem is and a detailed evaluation will be needed. However, it appears that the problem is not very severe, but not too mild to be ignored either. Seeing a professional may help to clarify things. In the meantime make sure you get 8 hours of sleep a day, exercise 20-30 minutes a day and have a balanced diet. Spend more time with your well-wishers/ close friends even though you may not feel like. Take care!

I am a 31 year old male who has been on medication for Depression and Anxiety (OCD) for the last 8 Months I suffered from it for about 10 years before seeing this doctor. This is the first psychiatrist I am seeing .I am comparatively better than before however I still see some images mind creates Images while working and I have become least concerned about my weighty issues. It is the first the psychiatrist I have been to as the problem is not going away he is not changing the medication. Do you think It can go away?

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Considering the longstanding history, I think reasonably good progress has been made. I am not sure if your question is whether you should see somebody else or ask your own doctor to increase dose/ change medication, or, you are asking if the medicines can be stopped now. A lot depends on how much symptoms is still present and how troubling it is. Medicines will certainly need to continue at the time being but whether a dose increase or change of medicines is needed depends on how troubling the residual symptoms are. Although I am not aware what medicines you are on, it may not be wise to decrease/ change the existing medicines right now, risking re- emergence of symptoms. Very often, in OCD, symptoms improve significantly and continue at a low level. The exact scenario in your case is a little unclear to me and will need a proper evaluation to clarify. Take care!

I am getting nervous very quickly in any place or in front of any person whom I can't knew him what causes of this brain problem.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. This kind of anxiety is common and can be part of social anxiety alone or a more generalized phenomenon. The reason or cause behind this is complex. It can involve one's nature/ personality or an anxiety disorder or a combination of both. If this has been there since childhood, there is likely a large component of personality. If it is something of recent onset, the component of the disorder is likely larger. The disorder part may respond to medicines whereas the personality part will need therapy/ counseling. Usually, a combination of both medicines and counseling works best. After a proper evaluation, a personalized management strategy can be planned. Take care!

Psychiatrist, Delhi
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!

Hello doctors. Can hiv transmitted between two hiv negative partners if they do unprotected intercourse. And one of the partner have three partners but still negative. Is there a risk?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
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. Take care!

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. I want to ask for my friend. He feels nothing good. He feels isolated, irritated and as if he does not has any excitement left for life. He is a very fun loving person but now a days he just remains quiet. please suggest what can I do for him. Or shall we go to some counselling?

Psychiatrist, Delhi
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!
