What's this nicotine containing patches? I am asking as a layman to these terms please explain?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Nicotine patch remains in direct contact with the skin of the person who wants to quit smoking and nicotine is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream and the person does not crave to smoke and thus lungs are saved.

Neck pain and headache may be due to muscle tension and strain due to poor posture, working at a desk for too long without changing position, sleeping with your neck in a bad position, jerking the neck during exercise. Headache and pain in neck may be related to each other like due to any mental tension and stress or poor posture during sleep and some time pain may be due to any infection. First you should try following treatment for get relief pain. Apply ice for the first few days. After that, apply heat with a heating pad, hot compress, or by taking a hot shower. Take a few days off from sports, activities that aggravate your symptoms, and heavy lifting. Resume normal activity slowly as your symptoms ease. Exercise your neck every day. Slowly stretch your head in side-to-side and up-and-down motions. Use good posture. Avoid cradling the phone between your neck and shoulder. Change your position often. Don’t stand or sit in one position for too long. Get a gentle neck massage. Use a special neck pillow for sleeping. If still pain will remain same then get a cbc with esr test, x-ray of neck done and share your all reports for further management.

I am addicted of tobacco. I want to quit this but I am not able to do. please give me some suggestion and medicine which helps Me on quit tobacco.

It feels like that especially in the first 21 days. But if you persevere you will succeed. Regarding medicines you will need to consult a doctor because it is given on prescription only. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear lybrate user. There is no health effects in quitting alcohol. You may feel some withdrawal symptoms like restlessness. But don't worry, ignore them. Drink a lot of water and fruit juices. Take care.

Few Ways To Deal With A Depressed Family Member

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Few Ways To Deal With A Depressed Family Member

Depression follows the trajectory opposite to contentment. It has adverse effects on a person's mental and physical health. Being depressive is not a choice; it is a condition. The fact that despondency is not an elected way of life is a mystery to many. People surrounding a depressed person should make conscious efforts in treating them with love and dignity. Subjecting a person to strict deadlines, stringent rules or excessive pressure could worsen their situation.   

Ways to tackle a depressed family member:

  1. Create occasions to enjoy a hearty laugh: If you have a family member suffering from depression you should probably share the benefits of laughter with him or her. Laughter is the best medicine to remedy acute depression. Look for opportunities to crack a joke or make the concerned person play with a pet. You can also take the person to watch humorous movies.
  2. "You are impossible" is the worst way of approaching a problem: In many cases a depressed person is reported with instances of negativity. Though the expressed negativity makes you feel morbid, do not give up on your family member. The person involuntarily finds reasons to feel hopeless. You should never think the case is beyond any kind of betterment.  
  3. Keep them in a positive environment: Positive ideas can counter dejection. Help the person plan for a great future. Lay stress on how important that person is to you and to the world in general. Keeping one's mind creatively occupied can prove to be effective. Music or any other passion for that matter can help a person get over phases of depression.
  4. You should not associate depression with perpetual sadness: Depression can have plenty of symptoms. The symptoms vary from one person to another. While some people lack in motivation some might want to harm themselves or others. Many become a recluse. The minute you associate depression with sadness you limit your overview of the actual problem.  
  5. Help the family member take his or her medicines diligently: While counseling helps a few patients of depression some others require medication. A bout of depression will dissuade a person from sticking to his or her medical routine. As a loved one it is your due responsibility to persuade him or her to take medicines regularly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Individuals vary in their response to an environmental insult. In some people, the reaction is prolonged as well as intense - this seems to be the situation with you. So if we are able to pass the time following an incident by distracting ourselves, after few hours/ days, the incident will no longer bother us. So we have to have an escape plan before hand. You will have to plan what exactly you are going to do to distract yourself if faced with a similar situation again. This could be in the form of taking a walk, reverse counting, listening to music, going to the gym and so on. It will need some practice but will work.

Dear, stress is the biggest cause for overweight and also maintains diabetes as well as depression. I understand that work and family pressures are leading to this depression and stress that you are facing. Like the instruction in airplanes before take offs-you need to put your oxygen mask on before you help others in cases of emergency. What are the job and family challenges you are having? it helps to focus one day at a time and to focus on how to feel healthy mentally and physically instead of reducing weight or levels of diabetes. That I mean is that your focus right now should be on what you can do to feel healthy and that is all. So it could be to enjoy your walks as you do them, play with your children (if you have young children) and enjoy it as you do it. The key is to find spaces and activities to do that increase your level of pleasant experiences. When you are able to effectively exercise this first step the other things will slowly fall in place.
