Dear , I sincerely feel, you are exaggerating your condition. You are just 26. At this age, the possibility of amnesia or degenerative disorders are rare. Busy people do forget things because they are busy. Anxious people do forget because they are anxious and stressed. In which category will you come? your memory could be tested online and if you want my assistance on that you may post a private question to me. Take care.

Hello, franxit contains two drugs:-flupenthixol 0.5mg and melitracin 10mg. Flupenthixol is available under the brand name of fluanxol/spenzo (0.5mg) though melitracin is not available per se, but it belongs to the class of tricyclic antidepressants. Other medicines of this class like amitryptilline or imipramine are available.

How To Manage Postpartum Depression?

How To Manage Postpartum Depression?

If you’re a new mother, chances of you going through postpartum depression are one in four and statistics report that more than 50% of Indian mothers experience it. When your life gets a whole new meaning with parenthood, feelings of sadness, anxiety, and low energy can be somewhat perplexing. That's when you know you are experiencing postpartum depression, and you're not the only one.

What is postpartum depression?
Often termed as ‘Baby Blues,’ which is a milder version of depression, postpartum depression (PPD) affects new mothers, weeks after childbirth. It is a long-lasting bout of severe depression which directly affects the mother’s health and mental condition. It can manifest in the form of sadness, severe mood swings, bipolar disorder, change in appetite, little energy, nonexistent libido among other symptoms.

It’s often overlooked as a sign of weakness and fear to embrace parenthood, but it’s a bit more severe than that, though curable with proper psychotic treatment. Doctors believe that the depression is caused mostly due to massive hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, and also due to a considerable change in the lifestyle before and after childbirth. The latter sometimes affects fathers as well, as a result of which about 10% fathers experience PPD in their lifetime.

Risk factors involved

Postpartum depression can accentuate suicidal thoughts, mostly in the mother. As stated earlier, it affects the mother’s mental state and in many cases, leads her to commit suicide, unless treated with utmost love and care. Furthermore, statistics show that PPD affects many mothers from a low socioeconomic background and they may be 11 times more likely to experience PPD than mothers having a better background.


Treatment

Since it is a type of depression, most cures can be obtained by therapy rather than a mainstream process using medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT), are two of the most popular types of treatment that have found the most success among patients. Some doctors opine that PPD and major depressive disorder (MDD) are different variants of the same depression, and hence, medicate patients accordingly.

One way of handling postpartum depression is by psychotherapy (which is not as menacing as it sounds!), where the mother, overwhelmed by the new tasks of motherhood, can share her thoughts with a professional psychiatrist and get the pressure off her chest.

Postpartum depression is an underrated issue, which has the potential to ruin a new mother’s life and can affect the baby’s growth as well. Thus, to live the subsequent years depression-free, it is essential for the mother to go through therapy if the symptoms are observed.

I have an issue of getting angry very quickly. So I want to know that is it a symptoms of any disease?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Uncontrolled anger is a sign of personality problem or stress. If you are like this since childhood days then you may have to change this habit gradually over a period of few months. Follow this:- 1. Whenever there is a situation that initiates anger, you try to become more polite in your approach. You take few long deep breaths and try to relax your body for some time. 2. You may try to avoid such situations. 3. You should a healthy life style with good nutrititious diet, regular yoga, meditation and exercise, enough time for rest, recreation and sleep, have some personal time to pursue whatever you like for example listening your favourite music, watching favourite tv serials etc.

Uncanny fear grips me at best of times, some occasional sleeplessness exists, Parents left longing for a united family life, before I could settle myself I'm 70 yrs+, had led a reasonably stable professional life of a middle class british educated engineer. Two PhD holder sons are on their way to their professional tracks. Wife's devoted to stability of my health and everybody else but talks (nags mostly) unnecessarily. Am presently working with a MNC on a serious national (make in India) project. Usual work stresses are there but increasingly getting the better of my fears of failures. How do I stabilise myself for my growing family and may be for the benefits my project may bring to the nation.

Well, you are reasonably healthy for your age with nothing serious affecting someone at your age! In the light of your age, and a nagging wife, I suspect that the magnitude of the project you have undertaken may have its pressures, unbeknown to you. One thing is for sure, as you age, your defense mechanisms will wane in strength and some of them may even fail you, then the enormity of common pressures may be high and seem unduly so too. These may be things that you handled in your hey days with pomp but suddenly find yourself fearing the job at hand because of lowered defense mechanisms. If you objectively examine yourself, you will most likely find that these fears are unjustified, and that your knowledge-base is very sound. Knowledge is power, but not so effective, if your previous coping skills are suspect. I don?t know if you have additionally taken a break from work life and returned after a long sabbatical. This can take a toll too. What can be done is really of import right now. I know you are healthy but you may not be adequately fit! I suggest that you do regular exercise, as age and medical advice permits. Do some Yoga and meditation, regularly. Spend some time dealing with your emotions with a counselor. Eat well, sleep is definitely recommended on a priority basis, and share a lot of your work responsibility with some colleagues. You could, in fact, indent for extra hands to facilitate proper outcomes. It is not a sign of weakness but a very sensible thing to do, especially when someone with your knowhow is there but needs the vitality of a young generation to do the actual execution. I figure the management will understand that, if they are of the right caliber. One thing that definitely will help is to focus less on yourself and more on the nation at large and thus broaden your perspective.

Hello, It is essential to bring down TSH level to 3 to 4 mU/L, for effective control of all the symptoms. So increase the dose of thyroxine and check TSH after 6 weeks to see if the level has come to the mentioned above. Then most symptoms will go away. Thanks.
