Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

Catatonic depression is a kind of depression which is characterized by prolonged periods of speechlessness and motionlessness. It is described as a state of mind that is caused by neurogenic and motor inabilities caused due to dysfunction of various neurotransmitters like glutamate and dopamine. People who suffer from a severe case of this condition, even have difficulty in performing simple regular tasks. For example, the act of eating breakfast may take a span of hours.

Some of the common symptoms of this condition are:

- Feelings of sadness
- A change in appetite causing gain or loss of weight
- Difficulty in concentrating and thinking
- Feelings of restlessness, worthlessness, and guilt
- Fatigue
- Irritability
- A loss of interest in any activity
- Trouble sleeping
- Attempts at suicide
- Cynicism and negativism
- Agitation
- Unusual and abnormal movements
- An inability to move and difficulty in speaking
- A refusal to eat or drink due to extreme anxiety

The major causes of catatonic depression are:

1. Abnormal neurotransmitter production - Irregularities in the production of neurotransmitters are believed to be one of the major causative factors of this type of depression. These neurotransmitters present in the brain help cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin and norepinephrine are the neurotransmitters which are mostly associated with this type of depression.

2. Dopamine irregularities - Another reason for this condition is believed to be the irregularities in dopamine, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter systems. Underlying neurological, physical, psychiatric or psychological conditions are accompanying issues.

Administering antidepressants or using electroconvulsive therapy are some of the known ways of treatment which have proved effective for getting relief from catatonic depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

What kind of diet is good for students who are under depression due to exams and all this stuffs?

What kind of diet is good for students who are under depression due to exams and all this stuffs?
Dear lybrate-user, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provide easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

An event or an accident that leaves us overwhelmed can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD. A particularly stressful situation or event that has created terror or been overly dramatic or dangerous can lead to stress and anxiety long after the individual has physically come out of the situation. This kind of a traumatic condition is usually what characterises PTSD. This condition is something that is persistent, and can linger on for a long time, calling for medical supervision and care. Here's a list of things you need to know about PTSD.

  • Duration: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder usually lasts up to six months. Yet, there are cases where it lingers on and requires treatment for some particular types of symptoms or behavioural changes. Usually, the patient's behaviour is a result of one or more of the symptoms discussed below.
  • Re-experiencing Symptoms: These symptoms include flashbacks and life like re-imagination in the form of dreams and nightmares. In many cases, the patient may remember and re-experience the entire scene or series of events that have led to the trauma in the first place. This can be triggered by a memory or association with words, events and other such things that have to do with the memory of the traumatic episode.
  • Avoidance Symptoms: A traumatised patient may go out of his or her way to avoid things that are remotely close to the traumatic incident. They may fear a reoccurrence or a reminder of the event and may avoid addressing the trauma altogether. Patients suffering from this symptom may have created a mental block, and may not be able to remember the exact details of the event. They may also feel emotions like fear, guilt, depression and even worry, over the past incident which led to the trauma in the first place. 
  • Arousal Symptoms: Arousal or reactivity symptoms may trigger the same reactions that the person showed during the traumatic experience. These may include being on edge constantly in anticipation of a reoccurrence, or even getting startled by the slightest thing since the mind is already occupied with thoughts of the event, constantly. Anger and emotional outbursts may also be caused due to these symptoms.
  • Mood Symptoms: Mood swings are the most common outcome of these symptoms. The patient may experience a complete lack of enthusiasm and drive to indulge in activities like hobbies and socialising. Also, the patient may end up harbouring feelings of negativity towards family, friends and strangers, besides going through phases of guilt and self blame for the occurrence of the traumatic event.

PTSD can be a debilitating disorder in the emotional sense, and should be treated by a psychiatrist in case it lingers on for more than six months.

I have problem of short temper What will I can do to control it. I became aggressive on nothing sometimes help me to change myself.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not control your anger but learn to express it in healthy ways. Anger is a good feeling if harnessed well. In fact all feelings are good feelings and they are there to tell us to rectify something that is not going well. The cardinal rule to feelings is the expressions of them. All feelings must be expressed without exception. If you do not they will get internalized and harm the particular organ it has chosen to express itself in. Now there is a problem if you are getting angry suddenly, too fast or without reason. These are signs that there has been some problem in the past and that the concerned feeling has not be dealt with by expression. Sometimes by suppressing anger over the years you may be carrying an overload of unexpressed anger that will come out in impulses and with the least of provocations. These piled up emotions must be dealt with even now and after you have relieved yourself of past feelings you will be able to handle current ones with a lot of ease. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such speed, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage. Anyway anger management classes will be still beneficial for you.

Hi I am a smoker. I smoke 15 -20 cigrate per day. What is result about my health. Pls reply.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

I am 25 and damn addicted to smoking. I'm smoking from last 3 years and I can not get over it. I also tried nicotine gum but it was of no use. What should I do?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Nicotine dependence is a very troublesome problem among youngsters today. The fact that you are unable to quit smoking and that you had multiple failed attempts goes to suggest that you certainly face withdrawal symptoms due to nicotine use. You might need a detailed evaluation of these symptoms and target oriented medications.

All your suffering, anxiety, dream etc., are nothing but deviations. At the age of 21, if a person's predominant thoughts and activities are directed towards career goals and achievments he will most likely attain a bright future in married life and social life as well. Your fear of becoming a gay is absolutely irrational. Take deep dive into your career goal, all these unnecessary thoughts and fears will automatically vanish.

This is all stress and worries of life. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear lybrate user...Alcohol causes the damage to liver and daily excessive use of alcohol may cause significant damage. There are grades of liver damage and once the fibrous tissue gets deposited in liver, the damage gets permanent. My suggestion to you will be to completely quit alcohol as soon as possible. Quitting alcohol leads to withdrawal symptoms in body in form of restlessness, hand tremors, body tremolousness and even withdrawal seizures sometimes, thus making quitting it difficult. For this reason you may need the help of initial detoxification with medications. Also you may need anti craving agents to boost your motivation to quit alcohol. For treatment get in touch.

Chemistry, physics and biology are not separate subjects. They interrelated. In fact our body contains chemical components and electricity (you exhale carbon molecules and your heart needs electricity to function. For example, there are many rooms in your house, but wholly it is a house. Likewise, we are made up bio-chemical-physical rooms. Your dislike of these subjects may be due to some negative attitude or experience towards the concerned teachers during your early school life. Or, there may be a gap in knowledge because of your aversion. Better relearn these 2 subjects from 5th std. On wards, that will help you better understand the subjects and increase your interest. A stethoscope is a product of physics, and an injection or tablet is a product of chemistry.
