I. Am. Addicted of smoking marijuana. What are the effects that a body have if smoked regularly?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

Hi I want to know one thing and that is I have one family member who is 18 years old and does not have any friend and he does not like to talk with anyone occasionally, he also feels like he is in depression, he does not went outside from his house and he stays at his house almost whole day so sometimes he also takes the snaps of bad things etc. He also do takes the snaps of his house labours and the snaps of the roads. When we all asked him the reason behind all of these things then he simple says like this I always live inside in my house, I does not go outside at any point of time, so now I want to know that does all these things (behaviours) of my that family member are normal or not, the actual reason for this behaviour can be because my that family member lives almost in house (does not went outside, lack of having friends. Or not.

I don't think it is lybrate-user simple as that. Due to his age, it is very likely that there is some connection to events in his childhood or genes that has to be investigated. This can be ideally processed by a counselor and if that person thinks that he needs medical help then s/he may recommend a doctor. Then he would need to cooperate with both therapies for the best results. Anyway, in life we must follow these three important rules: Always Be responsible with everything we say and do; Always Be respectful with everything we say and do; and always be function with what we do. He is defaulting in all three.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Dear lybrate-user, It is better to evaluate her for parkinson or other conditions causing these involuntary movements. It may be due to Divaa od also. In that case the psychiatrist will change her mood stabiliser. Usually the psychiatrist himself may be able to assess her since psychiatrists are trained in neurology and they know Divaa od's side effects. Rarely she/he may take a neurologist opinion.

Dear, it is mentioned on the cigarettes box that smoking is injurious to health and it is not joking. Smoking is really very injurious for lungs, heart, stomach, eyes and many more organs. There are some products for withdrawal from this habit but they can only help when you are determined for that.

Dear Lybrate User, I understand. You seem to have mild anxiety due to the various issues you are facing. Remember to take a few deep breaths and normalize your breathing in these anxious situations. Concerning other people and their opinions, it is important to remember that the thoughts and actions of others are not in your control, however the way you react to them is. Build your self-confidence by choosing a task and breaking it down into smaller goals. This should eventually help achieve the big task easily. Here are a few effective communication tools you can use in conversations: - Make a plan of what you want to say beforehand. This way you have clarity. - Paraphrase what the speaker has said to ensure both of you are on the same page. Please consult privately for further help. Good Luck.

The development of MS has been associated with: a. an increased presence of antigliadin antibodies typical of gluten intolerance. b. low blood levels of vitamin D. c. low blood levels of antioxidants. d. high intakes of saturated fat so better to avoid high in animal fat or saturated fat Take gluten-free diet, which eliminates all wheat, rye, barley, and triticale foods, take diet rich in antioxidants consult for further guidance

As you rightly said your interpersonal skills may be poor because of devoting too much time in your studies. But, it is no big deal. I think you are nearing completion of the studies you are pursuing now. No need to worry about anything except your studies. Concentrae at successful completion of your studies. Social and interpersonal skills can be developed afterwards.

We’ve all had the experience of feeling anxious about something, to the degree that it keeps us up and makes it hard to fall asleep. If you’re a worrier by nature, your fears and concerns may regularly cause you to lie awake in bed for hours, tossing and turning. When this happens frequently, one naturally begins to feel anxious about bedtime as night approaches, making it even harder to wind down. The good news is that anxiety can be successfully treated. Often through simple things you can do yourself, the vicious cycle can be broken. 1) Take deep, relaxing breaths Taking deep, relaxing breaths can calm the nervous system and decrease general tension. When you notice yourself starting to worry or tense up, take several slow deep breaths in a row (breathe in through your nose, and exhale your fears and worries out your mouth). I also use this technique whenever I have a difficult time falling asleep. 2) Avoid caffeine If you’re a worrier, stay away from caffeine, particularly in the latter half of the day. If you must have something in the morning, choose green tea as it contains an amino acid, L-theanine, which promotes serenity and calm. 3) Try guided relaxation techniques Find a guided, relaxation recording that you like and use it daily. Learn to shift from tension to relaxation by listening to the recording when you’re stressed, or in bed at night to help you relax and fall asleep. 4) Write down your worries When your fears run around familiar tracks in your mind all day, it can be hard to gain control of them. Stop the cycle of chronic worrying by writing your fears in a journal. What is the worst that could happen? What is more likely to happen, optimistically? What can you do to improve the situation? When you examine your fears, they usually lose their power. 5) Exercise to blow off steam If you’re feeling really keyed up, try going for a run, a brisk walk or go to the gym. Consciously work off and shake off your fears and worries as you do it. Physical activity releases stress and also improves depth of sleep at night. 6) Try Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Anxiety is often a result of poor thought habits such as fearing the worst, focusing on the negative, inaccurate assumptions and negative self-talk. CBT techniques can change your habitual ways of seeing the world. If your anxiety is significant, consider seeing a professional therapist trained in CBT. Alternatively, there are CBT self-help tools and worksheets available online that can help you work through your worries. 7) Get enough sleep Ironically, the less sleep you get, the more anxious you’re likely to be. It’s also harder to manage stress. If you’ve been feeling anxious, the last thing you want to do is cut corners on sleep. Get to bed earlier, to give yourself the best chance at a solid night’s rest. Finally, if you’ve been feeling anxious for a long time and it’s affecting your sleep significantly, it’s important to let your doctor know about it, in addition to trying these tips.

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Hello lybrate-user first of all thanks for the question. I hope you have mentioned correct diagnosis with the help of doctor. Right now you are taking 37.5 mg of paroxetine. I want to know about status of ocd, how much improvement came after beginning of medicine. How much improvement you still expect? Maximum dose depend on patient's tolerability. Common side effects you need to know are: sedation, weight gain, delayed ejaculation, dryness of mouth, sometimes erectile dysfunction. Max dose can be 48-60 mg. Before hiking dose you should take advice from your doctor. It depends on many factors.

Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who evaluates and treats the problems of mind. Basic mbbs is required after which they complete either 2 years diploma in psychiatry (dpm) or 3 years masters md in psychological medicine. They treat by psychotherapy (layman word = counselling) and medications. Psychologist is one who acquires either ba/ ma or bsc/msc in psychology, this is done in normal colleges without much patient exposure. If they pursue further and do m. Phil/ phd in clinical psychologist, they are trained in handling patients, ie evaluation, assessment and therapy. They are recognised by the rci (rehabilitation council of india) and are given registration number similar to doctors have mci registration number. But there are many who do m. Phil/ phd, not in clinical psychology, but other branches of psychology and practise assessment and therapy, which is not valid and amounts to quackery. Counsellors are those who require minimum 10 th standard qualification and do diploma in counselling, there are alsoe universities which give msc, counselling psychology degrees, but these are not recognised as valid degrees for assessment. They do small time counselling in courts, schools, industries, and other establishments to address day to day problems. It s always wise to get an opinion of psychiatrist, as depression you are suffering from can be due to hypothyroidism, anemia and many common medical reasons, and the severity needs to be ascertained. If the psychiatrist feels you need cbt or some other for of psychotherapy, which he cannot allot time for, he aay refer you to a clinical psychologist.

Hi, I can understand your feelings. If there are any chances of patch up then first analyse the reasons of break up. Work on them and you may again give it a try if both of you are willing otherwise allow yourself some time to recover from this. Meanwhile engage yourself in some positive group activities like sports or music etc. If your sleep and appetite has got disturbed then please meet a psychiatrist and take some anti anxiety medicine for few days. Also see a counselor. If you want my help then you may contact me here on Lybrate on text counselling.
