Lithium is usually given in Bipolar disorder and in some psychiatric disorder like depression, psychosis etc as augmenting agent. But a specific blood level is required to produce its effect. Also you have to know about its toxicity. Drink plenty of water. Always ask doctors prior to taking other medication especially pain killers. Perform regular test for serum lithium level.

I can understand your situation. Its wrong to use tramadol HCL for such a long duration. You have to undergo detoxification under some experienced psychiatrist of this field. Only after detoxification we can decide whether you should put on drug free condition, antagonist or agonist maintenance. So do consult.

At first we have to rule out any underlying pathology through proper investigation. If all come out normal then you should consult a psychiatrist as you may suffer from somatoform pain disorder.

My brother is suffering from epilepsy from last 4 years, he was under medication both morning and evening dose upto now but we have stop his medicine for morning only. Will there be any problems bcoz of that? We have stop his morning dose because he use to sleep more due to those tablet and feel low all day. And also some time he forgot everything all of sudden for 2 or 3 minutes.

Difficult to say regarding medication. But it seems he might have seizure episode during that 2 to 3 minute of memory loss. A EEG would be a better investigation. Consult a neurologist.

Yes. Nicotex is one option, but if still he continues smoking other drugs and counselling techniques are there. Just consult a psychiatrist. But the most important point He should have a strong motivation to quit smoking.

I want to take modalert for increasing my focus on work. Is it good for me. I am a professional with average memory and focus, I want to increase my performance.

Better if you avoid Modalert to improve concentration as these medications are used for certain psychiatric pathology. Try other non pharmacological methods

You may suffer from depression. By using antidepressant you will also feel comfort from pain. For backache consult a physiotherapist and to rule out pathology perform a mri of lumbosacral spine.

I have depression since three years and I stopped antidepressants before six month. I am working in a college as a lab assistant. It's a less pressure and less hour work. But salary is less and my wife don't want to adjust. I get an offer from one company with good salary so I joined it just to test myself taking leave at current work. My opinion is to find some other earning source.

Just make comfortable with the surrounding. Regular meditation and yoga would be helpful. If once again develop symptoms of depression you have to start prevoius medications after consultation with your psychiatrist.
