Dear Sanjay, BIpolar and Clinical depression or depressive disorder are neurochemical disorders. These are usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Some drugs do cause low libido. To regain your libido, you need to taper off the drugs. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise, counseling and therapy. Take care.

It is not good to use psychiatry medicine for long time. Up to that you are not consulted psychologist. Better to consult. After discontinue medicine then depressive thoughts comes again. You need to take psychological counselling. Precautions prevent depression is do not be alone. Be share all your feelings with familymembers and friends. Be sociable. Be happy all the time. Do not think too much on any aspects. Take it easy. Practice yoga and meditation. Puja also helps very much. Walking, watching t v, going movies, attending spiritual meetings. Spend most of the time with your agemates. Be happy all the time. Do not think about past days. Feel always comfortable. Be happy. Ok best of luck.

Hi ive been diagnosed with major anxiety/depressive disorder like 1.5 years back. Ive had my share of panic attacks and phases of depression. One of the physicians I showed to had ordered tests for vitamin b12 deficiency and vitamin d and they were significantly low. 150pg/ml for b12 and 20 for Vit. D after taking shots for both was fine for a long time taking paxidep25 mg daily. I made a mistake and stopped and ive had on and off phases of anxiety and restlessness. Recently mya condition deteriorated again, im feeling restless and heaviness in my legs and light headedness. I checked b12 and D again and it seems theyve dropped to 250pg/ml and 20 for vit. D again. But my psychiatrist and the general physician I contacted both say it has nothing to do with anxiety. Is this true? Or can low b12 levels make me anxious and restless.

Dear user. Low b12 level cannot contribute to anxiety. Usually the symptoms are: Weakness, tiredness, or lightheadedness. Heart palpitations and shortness of breath. Pale skin. A smooth tongue. Constipation, diarrhea, a loss of appetite, or gas. Nerve problems like numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, and problems walking. Vision loss. Work with your doctor for cure. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You should understand your boyfriend first. You are just 18. The more you get emotionally involved in relationship, the more you are going to be disturbed in all other activities. Keep your self emotionally away from him. He is he and he has his own personality. If he is unable to understand your emotions now, no problem, we will correct him after the course. Take care.

Hello doctors! I am16 years old boy and I am going to US .approx 3 months back a well known psychiatrist, after hearing my problems prescribed me olanzapine ip 2.5 mg and clomipramine hydrochloride tablets for 6 months. But after a month I stopped taking it due to its side effects .now it has been approximately 8 weeks that I am not consuming it. After knowing the consequences of suddenly stopping psychiatrists drugs and not getting well at some extent I want to restart the medicines. Due to some reasons I cannot contact the psychiatrist. So I need advise from you. And if there are some consequences regarding retaking of such drugs then please let me know. Hoping to get reply from your side. I would be very thankful to you. Thank you.

These drugs are important for your treatment and recovery. Instead of stopping on your own you should have consulted the doctor and described the side effects. You should have also combined medication with some counseling for the best results. Now you have lost that opportunity and because of your age, it is important to restart only with a medical prescription and evaluation. Do not self-medicate and also you have to be carefully monitored during use for exactly the reason you quit: the side effects. Please take your complete medical history and prescriptions​ and meet another doctor near your place and go back to medical and therapeutic support immediately.

. Hello, I am a 51-year-old male, I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 2011. This is when I was nose-diving in life, by then I had seen a life which very few people have experienced that include globe-trotting, affiliation with power circles and pinnacle of luxury. I was highly successful in business and was blessed with money and full of joy. It all began in the year 2004 by losing money, assets, friends, relatives, business and contacts. I was descending faster than one can imagine. I was jobless and gradually I accepted that no one treats me the way as they used. I found it difficult to live without any source of income, I have had exhausted all my savings around 2006 and began to sell my properties which also included my home. I lived with the money which I gathered through sales of my assets. I could not sustain for long and then with great difficulty I found a job which too did not last more than 18 months. I had entered into the political system (to which I had access during my shiny patch) and had contested two major elections (parliamentary and legislative assembly) as nominee of one of the largest political parties in India and lost. The experience rendered an access to power coteries, even with which I could not continue beyond 6 years. After having exhausted all means, today I work as a sports facility manager at an isolated location as an administrator for a salary which is equivalent to my monthly phone bill 20 years ago. I am cut-off from all my contacts, relatives, friends except my immediate family. Some information which may be vital in your assessment: I have quit non-vegetarian diet 20 years ago, I am very concerned about animal welfare – especially the stray and uncared. I cannot tolerate loud music and noise. I do not watch television. I would like mention that in 2011 I did not take medication for Bipolar disorder. I had discontinued the same within 3 days as that made me sleepy for the whole day. I do not see any hope to recover as nothing seems to work in my favor, in any minutest way. Today I have nothing with me, home or any asset. The present work does not give me to save even a penny, I see no meaning to stick to it and have been considering the option to seek isolation in ashrams or spiritual centers in the hills. I am really clueless as to what I should be doing next. I would like to know whether the diagnosis was right and do I need medical help? If so, can I expect some changes and hope to live again? I will appreciate some advice and help. Thank you.

You certainly need medical help but along with counseling, which I think you have not resorted to at all till now. Under no circumstances are you to discontinue medication without consulting your doctor because bipolar medicines take time to work and there are always side-effects to contend with. Bipolar used to be only a late-onset disease in the past but now it seems to come up earlier. In that connection, you seem like one along with all the other symptoms you have described. You can use the manic phase to become successful if someone professional monitors you during that phase and helps you out of the dumps during the depressive phase. There is a long-term effort involved and perhaps a lot of expense. So you do have a problem financially and also psychologically. Whatever happens, you should never become dysfunctional: it will ruin you. If you do not trust the doctor’s diagnosis, you should seek a second opinion. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

General Physician,
Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

You are just 21 years and you can see what effect relationships have on us. Well I hope you have learnt some lessons before you move on.Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

MD - Psychiatry

Hello , all the symptoms that you have described are suggestive of a depressive disorder. When left untreated it might last form a few months to an year or more. Mood invariably influences your thought process & that might lead to development of depressive cognitions & usually the performance levels tend to become less satisfactory. Coming to your query of memory loss. It is usually a result of decreased concentration that in turn affects the process of memory formation ( happens in three steps registration, retrieval & recall ) the first step registration does not happen in a proper way & this manifests as memory deficit. Please consult a psychiatrist to evaluate the severity of the condition, based on his or her evaluation your condition you would be suggested an appropriate way of managing the condition both pharmacological( if required ) & behavioural.
