I got severe ocd .now for 3 years am using clomipramine hydrochloride .I tried withdrawal once but my ocd relapsed after 2 months. Now my question is have I to continue this med lifelong? Am asking because of its severe side effects including total sexual dysfunction.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Yes you need to continue medications for OCD fro many years, may be life long. As you said clomipramine produces severe sexual dysfunction, but now newer drugs with lesser of these side effects have come. Discuss with your psychiatrist freely and seek and try alternative medications. All the best.

First off all not having dreams is completely normal. Dreams are your mind's creation. The human brain never sleeps. Even when you're sleeping your brain is still awake. You wouldn't be waking up the next day, if for any reason your brain slept off, to be funny, for the in-numerous functions it does even while you think you're sleeping. When you sleep your brain turns off certain nervous responses from organs like eyes, mouth, your hands, legs and so on, giving you a sense of relief from the busy day you just had which gives you the feeling of being energetic when you wake up, because then your whole system is re-invoked by your brain, theoretically. Interestingly, dreams don't occur the same way in every person's head. Sometimes, the dream may be related to his/her life, or a current real life situation, or sometimes a completely new and different world in itself. The human brain is interestingly creative, that is one argument no one has ever dared to ask, thanks to such creativity around us. But don't be dis-hearted. Having no dreams does not mean you're not creative or you cannot imagine. Another theory recently suggested that many people, in a world of only 25% of whom under a certain stress level which scientists call the minimum, have dreams that have been driven because" they are stressed" not having dreams might be a sign that you just fall under that 25% of the world human population. It can also be that you don't remember your dreams. What you experience must be deja-vu a feeling that something has happened before not sure when.

What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

What Is Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome has recently come under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder. This syndrome usually affects the social skills of the patient, most heavily. The patient may seem normal and even intelligent at first glance. But on closer interaction, several social skill problems will come to the fore including an obsessive focus on certain topics and issues. Repetitive behaviour is also a part of this disease.

Let us find out more about Asperger's Syndrome:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms usually begin to show up early on in one's childhood. The patient will not be able to make eye contact while speaking with others. Also, a perfectly normal person may seem inordinately shy and reserved during social interactions. This awkwardness may come to the fore in the form of looking for expression cues on other people's faces and even the body language. The patient may not be a very happy and lively soul, with hardly a smile to crack at the funniest of jokes. The lack of emotions or the emotionally numb state is also a major giveaway of the condition. Other symptoms may include a strong aversion towards change in food habits and routine.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis is usually done by mental health specialists like a developmental paediatrician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist or even a paediatric neurologist. These specialists can put the child through a variety of tests that will study the neurological health as well as the speech and emotional behaviour of the child.
  • Educating the Parent: Once the diagnosis has been done, the parents of the patient will have to appraised of the condition and its implications. The symptoms and treatment will have to be duly discussed even as the parents are put through training and therapy to learn techniques with which they can help the child in progressing along more normal lines. The therapy will also help the parents deal with the challenge of living with someone suffering from this condition.
  • Treatment: There are varied forms of treatment that aim at fixing the specific areas and symptoms that the patient is learning to live with. Social skills training, speech and language therapy, CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and other forms of treatment can help the child overcome many symptoms that come from this condition.

In the course of the treatment, it is important for the child, parent and therapist concerned to realise that there is no single approach that can be applied to all patients suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Individual care and therapy will be required for individual cases. At the same time, most of the skills will need to be repeated at home so that the child takes them more seriously.

You must meet with a counselor first and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor too. Please do so immediately. You must investigate if the origin of this problem is from childhood or of recent origins. If it is recent, you will be able to pin-point the episode. If not, talk to your parents and see if they remember any incidents from your childhood, even in prenatal life, of any contributing factors. The counselor will be able to help out with this information. You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Dear,. Sexual fantasies are normal and you can have any type of fantasies. The tricky part is how you are going to fulfill any fantasy. In your case, you tried to fulfill one of your fantasy with the help of your girl friend and another male friend. That is causing confusion. Because you revered your girl friend as only your friend and her deviation from truth gave you jitters. Don't worry. Understanding is the key and answer to many misunderstandings. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Break ups are part of life, getting your heart broken is not easy I can understand but time is a big healer. I want you to know that you were not responsible for the break ups so don’t blame yourself. You cannot change the past, you can however create a beautiful future for yourself. Someone who is worthy of you will find you and love again. You just need to gather yourself, find yourself again. Firstly, get out of bed, shower, eat and get into a routine again. Make a list of all the things that you like to do that make you happy, meeting friends, painting, dancing, music etc. Get out of the house, you must get some exercise- yoga, waking, gym. I would suggest Counselling and speaking with someone. Hope you feel better soon.

What is the reason for this" If my girlfriend always ignores me when I am asking for her images or normal video calling. When we never faced each other in our lovely relationship we just contacted via whatsapp and phone calls. Also she don't want to face me before our marriage"

It seems to me that your girl's love is not as deep as yours. She is using you just for a time-pass. Do not get into this relationship deeply. Develop the same attitude towards her. You will never be frustrated. If she takes further step to get closer to you, you can go further.

I am OCD patient I am taking xet cr 25 mg daily but my anxiety is still there. Is there better tablet than xet cr like paxil cr pls tell.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.
