Relationships are best maintained with good communication, and you have hit the nail on the head, so to say. You are well qualified and obviously know how and what to communicate. So is it possible that you may be afraid of people and then stutter and hesitate to talk to them? it usually comes from an inferiority complex and a fear of people. Would you know where this came from in your developmental years? it would help to speak to your parents and see if they remember anything that might have contributed to this development. Equipped with that information please meet with a counselor to help you sort out this fear. In the meantime you could do several other things to improve your communication. Do attend a conversations skills class, public speaking course, personality development course, elocution class and do a lot of reading, which will endow you, both with knowledge and vocabulary that will be very useful to your communication skills. You must make a conscious effort to meet with people and you can start slowly with one friend and through his help meet more of his friends and slowly you will become familiar with them and not fear them so much. There are social clubs, functions, meetings, conferences, workshops, seminars, toastmasters club etc. Which are very good avenues to meet other people who are all interested in some kind of topical concerns and they will feel less intimidating. To build good self-image, self-confidence, and self-esteem do regular exercise in a gym, practice spirituality, get proper sleep, educate yourself more, and eat a proper diet. Pay close attention to the way you dress, speak, conduct yourself in social settings, and relate to other people.

Dear Srikant. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. OCD is a neuro chemical disorder. Psychotherapy like behavior therapy and cognitive therapy, relaxation therapy, life style changes etc are combined together with medicines for a cure. 100% cure is possible with the above methods. In your case, you took medicines and did not use the other methods. That is why it came back. I assure you 100 percent cure provided you follow the instructions. The best method is what I gave you. Please do not delay. provide me more of your symptoms. Take care.

Nexito (5 mg) is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris). Nexito (5 mg) affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression or anxiety. Nexito (5 mg) is used to treat anxiety in adults. Since you have reduced the dosage to half depression and anxiety symptoms are resurfacing. Psychiatric medication must be backed by psychotherapy, any change in the dosage should be with the consent of your doctor only.

How to Deal With Epilepsy?

MD (Med) -, MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Gurgaon
How to Deal With Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a relatively common disorder. Most cases of epilepsy can be controlled with a combination of drug therapy and healthy lifestyle. In some cases, surgery may also be advised. Epilepsy affects not only the lifestyle of the patient but also that of their caregiver. Each person reacts to epilepsy in a different way and hence the type of care needed also varies from person to person. While some patients have few seizures and require care only when they're having a seizure others need round the clock care. Here are a few tips to keep in mind if a loved one suffers from epilepsy.

  1. Know what type of epilepsy he/she is dealing with: Not all epileptic seizures are the same. Find out what type of seizures your loved one suffers from and what are the possible triggers associated with Involve yourself in their lifestyle. Epilepsy should not be a reason for your loved one to lock themselves in a room to stay safe. Participate in activities with them of you feel the activity may be a safety risk if they were to have a seizure; for example - swimming. 
  2. Notice seizure triggers: Often an epileptic patient may not remember the seizure after it has occurred. As their care giver, keep a seizure diary to track their seizures and its related triggers. Look for patterns in the triggers to their epilepsy attacks.
  3. Keep them safe during a seizure: When experiencing a seizure, the patient will lose consciousness, experience muscle convulsions and may grit his teeth. If the person is standing, hold them so that they do not fall. If they are lying down, try turning them onto their side. Do not put anything into their mouth.
  4. Take care of them after a seizure: After the seizure, people are most likely to be confused, tired and have a headache. Check for injuries and keep them calm till medical help arrives. Loosen clothing around their neck and ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their breathing.
  5. Medical identification: While someone who suffers from seizures often is likely to always have someone with them, others who have rare seizures may often venture out alone. In such cases, ensure that they always have medical identification on them. Also make sure that their friends, colleagues etc are aware of their medical condition.
  6. Help them maintain a healthy lifestyle: Staying active is essential for people with epilepsy. Avoid contact sports and pick low impact exercises like walking, running or swimming. Following a buddy system is essential when an epileptic person works out. If you wish to discuss on any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist and ask a free question.

Dear Sravan, i don't know your age now. But at the age of 17 years masturbating 2 times daily is normal. Masturbation relieves anxiety in teenagers. It can not cause anxiety by itself. But feeling guilty of masturbation and trying not to masturbate may cause anxiety and increase it.

How to forget alcohol habit.?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Why I cant thought positive? is it because of illness of infection?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Not at all. When we have grown up experiencing bad situations, we tend to be influenced by them to believe and expect the negative. Over years of repeated confirmations we become convicted of this belief, and even against odds, we would firmly adhere to this and make it our faith. In the same manner that you had developed the negative you can shift gears, as it were, and invest into the positive. There will be a lot of resistance and fear initially but, if you persevere, you will successfully out-maneuver it. You cannot live always anticipating the worst scenario, because life is not like that. And it has been established that ?you are what you think. You will not only attract bad forces towards you but also create bad situations. Positive people will avoid you like the plague and you will more and more confirm to yourself that the world is indeed a bad place without realizing that you were the one to have caused it in the first place. You must dispel this belief and look at life positively. Scott M Peck starts his book with the very first line reading as follows: ?Life is difficult! Then he proposes for us not to attempt to change this fact but to develop a suitable response instead. We are in charge of our response, which we can alter to suit the situation. Then he goes on to expound that the best way to counter this fact is by discipline! Be positively disciplined and you can conquer the world. Gradually dis-invest in the negative and that freed up energy can be fruitfully employed in the positive. It is going to be like a battle between evil and good. The choice is clear and it is well within your realm.

Respected Sir, The fact that you mention that you were suffering from Depression and GAD since 7 years and took treatment only for 2 would lead me to believe that you were either irregular in your treatment or inadequately treated. If that is the case, the symptoms you mentioned are clearly due to persisting of your depression. On the other hand if you have been taking the drugs regularly and still have these symptoms, that would make yours a resistant case. I would have to know the drugs that you had been taking to help you out further, if you feel that you were resistant even after complying with the treatment.

Epilepsy can not always be diagnosed by investigations. Record a vedio during the episode and show to your doctor it helps a lot in clinical diagnosis.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. I don't think you have any memory related problems. Still to be sure, I suggest you to undergo memory test online or offline. You may contact me after getting the result. Memory depends on three things. Understanding, retention and recollection. To understand better, you have to learn better, effectively. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

DICORATE Er. 750 Mg. Tabs. Consumig daily for BIPOLAR disease one in night time before sleeping. Age of patient is 27 years. As the doctor advice him that, this tablet should be used through the life. Is it correct? Is there any alternate medicine for curring this disease? if it so pl. Advise us to contact suitable doctor. And clarify my doubts.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, PDO
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The medication you are taking for bipolar is one of the best medications for this disorder. However, a thorough evaluation and review of illness history and treatment records will be needed to comment on the duration of treatment. There are alternative medicines available, but the need for them can only be determined after examination. Additionally, considering that the medication is being consumed for a long time, it will be advisable to get certain blood tests to rule out common adverse effects of the medicine, at regular intervals. I advise you to get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above. Take care.
