Is permanent cure of schizophrenia possible? If person stop medicine when he or she is normal and stable Is there is a chance to happen again?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Schizophrenia is treatable disorder just like diabetes and any metabolic disease. It requires a course of medications initially to bring severe symptoms under control and then stabilise with lesser doses. A maintenance therapy of minimal dose might be required to prevent relapses. This maintenance therapy (in a patient who has successfully achieved remission of symptoms with regular medications) may range from 2-5 years. In about 1/3 rd cases of frequent relapses or severer symptoms maintenance therapy may be required for even a longer time.

I and my husband became a parent of twins at age 45 and 49 respectively, through surrogacy in last April, after a childless marriage of 20 years. Initially it was a joyous moment for me personally but I am currently facing severe moments of anxiety, sleeplessness, lack of interest, sorrow, fatigue etc leading to me doubting my becoming a parent at this late age. I have severe doubts on my capacity to cope and the prospects of a future to bring two babies to adulthood is making me feel depressed and anxious. I am not sure how I come to this state despite support being received from my parents, husband, maids (2 of them to support). I need to come out of this situation asap so that I can get back to providing quality care to my children while being able to enjoy the journey of doing so.

Kudos to you for achieving your goal for becoming proud parents of twins. As you have rightly said it is a daunting task to take care of the kids. But you will be able to do that with the support of your husband, parents and your maids. Cause for anxiety, depression and fatigue are many .So a detailed history medical, dietary,sleep, environmental history is needed to give specific advice Are you a Vegetarian or Non vegetarian What is your height and weight Are you on any medications. Do not use dairy for yourself and your kids Eat whole food plant based food Cut down animal protein Take supplements, What tests have you done recently and what are the results. Want specific advise take a consult to think, eat,live and stay healthy.

Frustration Life is full of frustrations. From the minor irritations of losing something to the major problem of continued failure towards a desired goal. Since many of the things we truly want require a degree of frustration, being able to manage frustration is required in order to allow us to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances. Understanding Frustration Frustration is an emotion that occurs in situations where a person is blocked from reaching a desired outcome. In general, whenever we reach one of our goals, we feel pleased and whenever we are prevented from reaching our goals, we may succumb to frustration and feel irritable, annoyed and angry. Typically, the more important the goal, the greater the frustration and resultant anger or loss of confidence. Frustration is not necessarily bad since it can be a useful indicator of the problems in a person's life and, as a result, it can act as a motivator to change. However, when it results in anger, irritability, stress resentment, depression or a spiral downward where we have a feeling of resignation or giving up, frustration can be destructive. What Causes Frustration? Frustration is experienced whenever the results (goals) you are expecting do not seem to fit the effort and action you are applying. Frustration will occur whenever your actions are producing less and fewer results than you think they should. The frustration we experience can be seen as the result of two types of goal blockage, i.e. internal and external sources of frustration. Internal sources of frustration usually involve the disappointment that get when we cannot have what we want as a result of personal real or imagined deficiencies such as a lack of confidence or fear of social situations. Another type of internal frustration results when a person has competing goals that interfere with one another. The second type of frustration results from external causes that involve conditions outside the person such as physical roadblocks we encounter in life including other people and things that get in the way of our goals. One of the biggest sources of frustration in today's world is the frustration caused by the perception of wasting time. When you're standing in line at a bank, or in traffic, or on the phone, watching your day go by when you have got so much to do, that's one big frustration. External frustration may be unavoidable. We can try to do something about it, like finding a different route if we are stuck in traffic, or choosing a different restaurant if our first choice is closed, but sometimes there is just nothing we can do about it. It is just the way life is. Our goal in dealing with external sources of frustration is to recognize the wisdom of the Serenity Prayer..."God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference." One can learn that while the situation itself may be upsetting and frustrating, you do not have to be frustrated. Accepting life is one of the secrets of avoiding frustration. Responses to Frustration Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper ANGER: There is a saying "Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression." Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. GIVING UP: Giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. LOSS OF CONFIDENCE: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that If we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself "It is worth it!" and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. STRESS: is the "wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. DEPRESSION: Depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. OTHER REACTIONS: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions Whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation.

Hi, I am 30+,i was having a 1 yr 3 month baby ,previously i was working recently i quit for my child, but now a days i found myself becoming irritate if some one is saying me any thing.

If it is connected to your taking care of your baby and you are very tired, you may be irritable. You must learn to be patient, and if necessary get some help in looking after the child. If the child has entered the terrible twos at an earlier age, s/he will give you quite a bit of trouble as part of her/his growing up. This is a very crucial time for the child, and you will tide over it as the child resolves this phase. If you are irritable because you are not working and could be doing something productive, rubbish that thought. You chose to have the baby and therefore you must do justice to taking good care of the child until 3 or 4 years, and then you could join duty. The investment in the child will pay off good dividends later on. Love the child, be there always, be patient, spend lots of time and help the child meet all developmental milestones with ease. Mothering is a difficult task especially if your heart is not in it. Don?t make it more difficult than it really is. You and the child wil have very fond memories of this time, if well spent.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

It is fine to fantasize about anything or anyone unless and untill its a cause of distress for you or people around you. You are free to make choices and no one can stop you from that. So till the time you are comfortable with your thoughts its normal. If you have any specific doubts or query, you may ask

Dear lybrate user, 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.

The first thing is to have a fixed time table wherein you will have fix time to wake up, for meals, for rest and enjoyment and also fixed timing for going to bed. If possible, start your day early in the morning - with the sun rise. Go for a walk/jog or do some yoga/pranayama or take up any other physical exercise like cycling/swimming/game of your choice. Have healthy breakfast. Best food for all meals would be lots of fruits and vegetables, alongwith carbohydrates, proteins and essential fats. Hence you can have dal, roti, rice, subzi, salad, curd etc daily. Have sugar and fried food in moderation. Avoid fast and junk food loaded only with calories. More importantly have plenty of water. Avoid smoking and alcohol. About reducing stress - stress is part and parcel of our lives. Hence we all need to learn to manage our stress. Understand what is causing this stress and try to analyse the cause. Search for various options and choose best possible option that suits you. Yoga/meditation and physical exercise are good stress busters. Learn time management and anger management techniques. Be in the company of people with positive attitude and learn to enjoy life. All the best.

My wife is very moody, has got lot of fallacies, does not believe me for no reason, does exactly opposite to what I suggest, she makes small issues into big ones, least afraid of any one in the society we live or in relations and many more issues. Do we have medicines or required any brain surgery? will hypnotism will be a good idea? please let me know.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear , it appears to be a personality problem. It is not an illness. Firstly you should tell her that you all love her so much and you want her to be more lovable. Very politely she should be made aware that she should change her behaviour as it becomes awkward at times. You may make a request to visit a psychiatrist or psychologist who may interview your wife and you in a unbiased manner, to find out expectations and fears you both are harbouring for each other, and finally suggest remedy for it. It is a long process called family therapy. The effects will be long lasting. A few medicines may be required for some time, but brain surgery is definitely out of question. Hypnotism is not meant for that.

Please tell me the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist and the whole procedure please.Please tell.
Hi, a psychologist is a professional who evaluates and studies behavior and mental processes. Typically, psychologists must have completed a university degree in psychology, which is a master's degree in some countries and a doctorate in others. A psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in psychiatry, which is to say in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, unlike psychologists, and must evaluate patients to determine whether their symptoms are the result of a physical illness, a combination of physical and mental, or a strictly psychiatric one. As part of the clinical assessment process they may employ a mental status examination, a physical examination, brain imaging such as computerized tomography (ct/cat scan), magnetic resonance imaging (mri), and positron emission tomography (pet) scanning, and blood testing. Psychiatrists prescribe medicine, and may also use psychotherapy.

5 Ways to Deal With Alcohol Dependency!

5 Ways to Deal With Alcohol Dependency!

Alcohol dependence, sometimes known as 'Alcoholism’, is the most serious form of drinking problem and describes a strong, often uncontrollable, desire to drink. Drinking plays an important part in the day to day life of alcohol dependent people, which could lead to building up a physical tolerance or experiencing withdrawal symptoms if they stop. There are varying degrees of alcohol dependence and they don’t always involve excessive levels of drinking. If you find that you ‘need’ to share a bottle of wine with your partner most nights of the week, or always go for a few pints after work, just to unwind, it is possible that you may be on the verge of getting long-term health problems. If you find it very difficult to enjoy yourself or relax without having a drink, you could have become psychologically dependent on alcohol. Physical dependence can follow too with withdrawal symptoms. It can be very difficult for some people to give up an addiction. Here are some natural remedies that can help:

1. Take it one day at a time:

You can start your road to recovery is by slowly reducing your alcohol consumption. If you have feel like you consume a drink or two after work just to relax, try to cut down on this by only having a drink 3 times a week, then once a week and gradually rid yourself of the habit.

2. Keep yourself occupied:

When you find yourself having nothing to do, you start thinking of drinking more. Try to keep yourself as busy as possible so that you do not think about drinking throughout the day. Find small activities to do in your free time like taking a class or reading. This way you don’t let your mind wander to other tasks like drinking.

3. Try bitter gourd:

Bitter gourd is the go-to vegetable when trying to quit drinking. Not only does it curb your need for a drink, it also repairs your kidneys in the process. Drink the juice of the bitter gourd in the morning when you wake up. The taste may be a little hard to handle, but mix it with some buttermilk and you’re good to go.

4. Out of sight, out of mind:

Clear your surroundings of any and all bottles of alcohol. Get rid of all the reminders of drinking and make sure to avoid passing any bars or pubs you frequent when you are outside. This should slightly help you curb your desire.  

5. Surround yourself with the right people:

Make sure you hang around people you know will not tempt you to drink. Get together with friends who do not drink or have previously quit drinking to help you do the same.

Hello lybrate-user, I appreciate that you are trying to make a change and you want to quit smoking. However, there is no medicine that can help and I wouldn't recommend taking pills on the same. An effective way to help quit your smoking would be to work with an addiction specialist as well as with nicotine gum. They will help you with a plan and the discuss the withdrawal symptoms and guide you along the way. Please do not hesitate to go ahead with your plan with the help of a professional.
