Because anxiety and depression have same serotonin pathways as the cause. Though classified as antidepressants, for anxiety, these are the medications of choice. They can be safely taken on a longer run. Pure anxiety reducing benzodiazepine group of drugs like anxit, restyl, are very harmful on a longer run, in fact the name it self on these by drug companies are misleading. Psychiatrists and neurologists, dont prescribe them on a longer run, but for short term use only. SSRI group can be safely taken for long term

Obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no productive outcome. It is entirely based on fear, which you may not be aware of. Meet with a counselor and deal with your fear to really resolve this obsession. If not attended to, this can lead to compulsiveness based on the obsession. If the obsession is taken care of the compulsion will not be required. Obsessive people will always be in a dilemma because they are not able to come to a decision. Decisions are a critical part of your everyday life and thousands of decisions are made every day to move on in life. The root is going to be fear for sure and if you handle that your problems will never return​.

You are depressed due to a reason -jobless/ home and your partner issues. You need to take counselling to learn coping skills. CBT is also helpful

MD - Psychiatry

2 bottles per day is too much. It might be difficult to treat him as out patient. Find out a nearest Deaddiction centre, which is licensed and has psychiatrist to treat and get him admitted there, his liver function test and other testsmight be needed to adjust the dosage of medications during detoxification and further de-addiction. All the best.

I have recently got engaged. I feel she is very shy and me too blunt. What should I do to make her feel comfortable?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just stop being blunt. Don?t marry your fiance to change her. Accept her as she is and if it is good for her (not you) you can help her to change. First though, you need to make her comfortable with you. That can happen, if you help her by being kind, gentle, loving, respectful, trustworthy, and always giving. She will withdraw more into her shell with your bluntness. When she improves herself around you, she will find it a lot easier with other people particularly when you are with her. Gradually she will grow out of this shyness and live comfortably. If yours is an arranged marriage, surely she will feel shy initially depending on your backgrounds, education, socio-economic class, caste, community etc. Give her time and be very lovingly patient.

Hi I am from karnataka. actually my friend had a smoking habit. Now he was feeling very sick of smoking. Now he really want to quit smoking what should I do to help him.

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.

He cannot get any improvement unless he goes through a major operation. He just needs to live happily and taken good care. Sometimes, people get better with time. He can do everything. He should practice yoga and pranayama, this will make him cheerful and patient.

Best ways to develop strong emotional health

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Best ways to develop strong emotional health
Taking care of your body is a powerful first step towards mental and emotional health. The mind and the body are linked. For example, exercise not only strengthens our heart and lungs, but also releases endorphins, powerful chemicals that energize us and uplift our moods.

Follow these simple ways for good EQ-

1) Get enough rest: Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep each night in order to function optimally.
2) Adopt good nutrition: The more you learn about what you eat and how it affects your energy and mood, the better you can feel.
3) Exercise regularly: Exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression. Aim for atleast30 minutes of exercise per day.
4) Get a dose of sunlight: Sunlight lifts your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of sun per day.
5) Limit alcohol and avoid cigarettes and other drugs. These are stimulants have long-term negative consequences for mood and emotional health.

Dear Lybtrate User, I think you need a companion. You need someone who will listen to you, will share your worries. You mentioned that you are living alone in Chennai. If possible, talk your husband everyday share your routine with him, ask him about his daily routine. Communicate with your son, understand his challenges and also share your thoughts with him. If this is not possible, talk to a Counsellor either personally or on phone. You are sad and lonely. You need to give an outlet to your chocked up emotions. Please talk to a Counsellor. Take care.

Hi,am 45 year male,married have a 18 year son.From childhood used to write only in capital letters.Difficult to write in small caps & running letters.But from past years becoming difficult to write certain numbers like 3,6,8,9,0 and letters like B,S and few more.It takes more time to start & write above mentioned numbers & letters.Becomes more difficult to write if someone is watching me while writing, can't write correctly. Please suggest. Thanks Samir mehta

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some people who have become habituated to write in capital letters. You have been doing so for many years and it has become entrenched in your writing style. To change it now will be very, very difficult unless you are willing to go to calligraphy classes and work at it for a long time. Anyway, why would you want to change your style now, when you have managed for so many years?! The writing itself may not be the problem as much as it seems more psychological. Just to rule out any neurological problem you may get an examination from a neurologist. Your mind could be playing all kinds of tricks with you and making you very conscious of being inadequate and different from others. As you have mentioned that it becomes more difficult, if someone else is watching you. If your mind decides that something is going to be difficult, then it will make that difficulty become real. Are you under any kind of stress, especially to do with fear? You may be very suggestible under fear. This obsession can be quite a handicap, but of your own making. Talk to a psychologist or counselor to identify any underlying causes to your problem and have that sorted out. You will find that the difficulty with those numbers will also disappear.

Why Smoking Pot Is Actually the Opposite of Cool!

It is a common trend among youngsters to smoke weed as they tend to think it makes them look cool. It is a common misconception that smoking pot relieves various social and personal problems. It is used as a form of escape mechanism that allows them to avoid problems in life.

  1. Peer pressure: You may have friends who smoke weed on a regular basis, so you may be tempted to join in.
  2. Boredom: It is a usual resort to escape from boredom or craving excitement. It is said that smoking weed helps in filling the internal void that results from lack of excitement.
  3. Rebellion: Weed has also been connected and continues to be a symbol of rebellion among today's teenagers and youngsters.

Risks:

  1. Smoking weed has been shown to shrink the size of the orbitofrontal cortex, a region of the brain that is important in making decisions and processing emotions.
  2. It can alter your mood, hamper body movement and impairs your ability to concentrate and execute tasks.
  3. It increases your risk of getting affected by phlegm and cough.
  4. The long term effects of marijuana comprises of impaired learning and thinking skills.
  5. It also affects the process where new connections are formed in the brain.
  6. Regular weed smokers have also been shown to have lower IQ levels comparatively.
  7. Apart from the mental effects, it may also cause breathing discomforts as the smoke may irritate the lungs.
  8. It also increases the chances of heart attack in the elderly.
  9. Weed has also been reported to impact the fetus if a pregnant woman smokes it.
  10. It raises the risk of behavioral problems in children.
  11. The complications that a child may face are impaired problem solving skills, attention and memory related disorders.

Thus, it is important to stay away from smoking weed as it is addictive and increases your chances of getting affected by numerous health complications.

My wife is schizophrenia patient, do not want to take medicine What will do? please suggest.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
In a patient with schizophrenia who is not taking medicines, should be assessed by a psychiatrist asap either in the clinical/hospital setting. But if the patient is not willing to visit a psychiatrist, the patient should be seen on a homevisit, and if the latter is not feasible, patient should be admitted directly. Intensive medications should be initiated with timely initiation of insight oriented psychotherapy. Long acting antipsychotic (medication) injectables are used for such patients quite frequently, which can be given once a fortnite or month for patients who have problems with compliance.
