Some patients require Trihexyphenidyl some do not. Its better that you discuss its need with your treating Psychiatrist. As far as lifetime treatment goes your treating Doctor must be knowing your course of illness in past 20 years and so it's best that you go with his advice regarding the type of medicine as well as the dose.
I 'm capturing the habit of sleeping too much day by day. I don't know what is the reason, I 'm pursuing executive (CS ) ,nd I really need to work on my studies but I 'm not getting why. From last few days I 'm feeling so. Sleepy. Please consult me something.
You need to sleep on an average 8 hours per day. If you sleep less at night you might feel sleepy during day. However even after sleeping well at night if you sleep more during day, you need to be evaluated for narcolepsy (excessive day time sleepiness) and take necessary treatment. Kindly consult a psychiatrist.

I'm a 24 year old male from India. I have been having extreme mood swings for the past four months now. I'm usually normal when i'm with friends, but when i'm alone, my mood gets ruined for no reason whatsoever. I get angry at very small issues. Even when i'm with people I constantly think that people don't like me. I feel like i'm being judged and that they will talk about me behind my back. Also I have been having a lot of breathing problems. I get breathless even if I climb a flight of stairs and fell my heart is going to pop out of my chest. Also, I sleep a lot. I wake up late. My exams are approaching and it's stressing me out. When I get angry, I start crying. I don't want to end my life. That's the last thing i'd want. I just really need to get out of it and since I haven't told my parents, I don't know what to do. For starters I just wanted to know the level of depression. Thank you.

Please see a psychiatrist and counsellor for assessment and diagnosis. Counselling can help you to regain your confidence and self esteem. For breathlessness, you can see a pulmonologist and also exercises which will strengthen your lungs. Yoga and meditation and pranayam is a safe way to do so under an experienced teacher.

I am somewhat weak and I want to build up myself such that like that of heroes and build my body and my brain. I want to be very sharp in my studies and want to be more strong. This is my only tension. So suggest me please such that I can build my body and reduce my weight, trim my butts and etc and develop my memory without going to gym. Please suggest me fast.
To reduce weight you have to diet and do exercises. You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

One pound equals 3,500 calories. If you cut 500 a day from your diet, you'll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day.

Doctor please help me since childhood I am suffering from homosexuality disorder I used to think I am a girl and wear girl dress and cosmetics n all. Whenever any male guest came to home if he sleeps @ night I was touching his private parts and gets enjoyed. After that when I grown up that time this habit was continued. And @ the age of 25 I did my engineering and I got into depression. Another thing is I used to call male freinds n talk like girl in a sexy way and arouse him in sexual way and masturbate that time only. Here I am showing one psychiatrist but I did not told him this all. Now I am 29 year male and regularly thinking that really I am gay? Thinking too much and again I got into depress mode feeling like hell continue checking in internet that how to overcome from homosexuality into heterosexuality all that crab it hurts too much please tell me how to overcome this problem so that I need to live heterosexual life.
Homosexuality is a lifestyle and no longer considered to be a disorder as per american psychiatric association. Please consult a psychiatrist for the depressive symptoms you have written. You need to accept your sexual orientation and come out from your negative views in a dignified manner. I will strongly advice to refrain from having risky behaviour with strangers, you may land up in legal trouble.

When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Relax dear lybrate user. You are not alone. Many men experience this problem at some point of time. Please go through the following article. What is premature ejaculation? premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. What causes premature ejaculation? most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner. It may happen only in certain sexual situations or if it has been a long time since the last ejaculation. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. What are the symptoms? the main symptom is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. Ejaculation occurs before the person wishes it, with minimal sexual stimulation. How is premature ejaculation diagnosed? your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. How is it treated? in many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. For some men, stopping or cutting down on the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs may improve how well they can control ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation. For example, you may learn to identify and control the sensations that lead up to ejaculation. And you may learn to communicate with your partner to slow or stop stimulation. You can try using a condom to reduce sensation to the penis. Or you can try a different position (such as lying on your back) during intercourse. Counseling or behavioral therapy may help reduce anxiety related to premature ejaculation.
