First of all instead of treatment you need to understand your actual problem. For that you should see a speech therapist.

Dear lybrate-user, before meeting a toxicologist, please consult a psychiatrist. Sometimes people develop a delusion of poisoning when they are severely depressed. You have other symptoms of depression, anxiety, dizziness, fear, confusion, dry mouth, nausea, shivering, weight loss, etc. You are neurologically ok, it looks from investigations. Please let me know what medicine, in what dose, for how long. He/she prescribed and for how long you have taken them. Please remember that antidepressants act only at a particular dose and it takes 2-3 weeks to act.

Hello sir. I am very sorry for your loss. We all go through the process of mourning and have thoughts of those who have left us. We get distressed during the initial few months but gradually, we learn to accept our loss and cherish the fond memories. If we fight to block the thoughts, then this would trouble us more. Let the thoughts come, and. Let them go. Do not try to modify your experience. This will help in reducing your distress. You will gradually learn this, but keep trying. You can take deep and slow breaths, try yoga or other form of meditation to keep you relaxed. Keep doing your routine work. Do exercise. Eat healthy, sleep well. Avoid much of tea/coffee. Keep in touch with your family and friends. Just try to be" normal" with time, you will definitely get better. Please take care.

Sir/madam Iam narender and my question is how long time I can use medicine for schizophrenia.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia is a thought disorder where a person loses reality boundaries and has behavioral issues. It is cause of discrepancy in neurotransmitters like dopamine, glutamate and serotonin. The medications are targeted for these neurotransmitters. Most patients have relapsing courses and it is advisable to continue the medications for preventing relapse. Approximately one third patients require lifetime medications. It is wise to consult your psychiatrist for ascertaining the course and prognosis of disease.

I understand you concern for your father. You can advice your father to start doing some aerobic or yoga so that his tension will be reduced and daily make a habit of taking 10-12 glasses of water which will make him fit and healthy away from all tensions. You can go for Xray investigation to confirm. And for knee pain let me recommed some home care management because it could be arthritis which is very common in this age: • Avoid prolonged standing. • Rest painful joints: O Use a walker. O Use crutches. O Use a cane. • Apply warm compresses for stiffness: O Apply for 20-30 minutes, every 1-2 hours. O Wear a sling • Follow an exercise plan developed with your doctor. O Perform exercises for osteoarthritis. O Perform gentle stretching after exercise. • Acetaminophen for pain • Take prescription pain medicines as directed. • Use splints for arthritis (if diagnosed in Xray): O Apply splints when the joints are swollen. • Wear footwear that fits properly. • Weight loss if you are overweight. Precautions to be taken to avoid joint pains • Milk, curd, ghee, butter milk and cucumber which contain more amount of calcium should be taken. More exercise should not be done. • People should not climb steps, hills and heights and they should not sit down on the floor. • Taking bath with cold water is not good. • Food which contains sugar and sour tastes should be taken. • Besan flour items and potatoes, radish, sweet potatoes should not be taken.

Can depression be cured completely? Or is it just that with right medications & therapy the symptoms can just be kept at bay. Or is it just that the patient learns to live with the disease.

It depends on what" cure" means to you. If absence of depressive symptoms means" cure" then certainly medications with or without other forms of adjuvant therapies can cure depression. It also depends on the cause of depression. Depression caused by organic causes like deficiency of certain vitamins, thyroxine, some stressors in life, responds better to treatments than other forms of depression which do not have an identifiable cause. However the aim of treatment of depression usually is more than 50-60 % remission of symptoms and prevention of relapses. Percentages of remission may vary from 0-100 in different patients. If a patient of depression starts feeling that he has to learn to live with depression then certainly he has a scope of further improvement.

Dear lybrate-user, quitting tobacco is not easy. There are de-addiction therapies available along with nicotine lozenges and nicotine gums. These treatment methods are effective in the beginning but the relapse percentage is always high. The best and proven method is to quit today and now. Quit smoking habit now and sustain it with the help of self motivation and will power. Motivation therapy and will power building therapy could help you. Take care.

When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate-user, you struck with bitter truth of life. If you want to be overcome this situation:- 1) be strong, be a fighter and face reality. 2) under stand situation & accept truth. 3) hope for best & prepare for worst. 4) god help them who help them self. 5) keep your self physically & mentally busy in your work, it will help you to over come from depression. 6) do regularly breathing exercise - pranayama - omkar pramayama thrice daily. 7) where one road ends you have two options to progress.

The way you wrote about your problem or is evident that you are going through depression. Are there any problems in your family or your personal life that you are not able to solve. You definitely need to take help and talk about your problem. Anger is also an expression of depression and frustration in some people.

It is not a psychiatric problem but it is a sign of insecurity in you. Just because you love someone does not mean that you should curtail their freedom: why would she want to be in this relationship, if you are so insecure and that she cannot enjoy her life and must live a cloistered life! if you love her, then you must respect her, honor her, trust her, and shower her with lots of happiness. If this continues, she will want to be out of this relationship and may run far away from you. You should examine why you want to restrict her so much. You may have had a bad experience in life or in your home of origin to think like this. Meet with a counselor and determine where this insecurity comes from and learn to sort it out fruitfully and if you want to keep this girl for the rest of your life. This insecurity will push the girl away: the exact opposite of what you want and desire. Then you cannot blame the girl for your actions.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Chewing tobacco addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Hello, my neighbour is a female age of 28 She wants to have sex with me, always I denied, I explain her it's wrong but she is not listening, pls suggest what do I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are right to refuse her and you must keep far away from her as you could be a huge temptation for her. She is far older than you and her libido may be stimulated to high levels making it difficult for her to contain herself. She should ideally seek to get married and settle down in life. You have so many other things to do in life and cannot be caught up with this situation, which can bring a lot of disturbances in your scheme of things in life. Please focus on your career and academics. This can be very difficult especially at your age but it is certainly not a welcome distraction.

Hello, thanks for the query. It is indeed difficult to put up with a temperamental family member & I understand your difficulty. You mentioned he took some antimanic drug, can you tell its name, dosage & why he is no longer taking it? your brother needs psychiatrist consultation for sure to ascertain whether these mood swings are due to some mental illness (bipolar disorder, schizophrenia) or they form his personality style (known as cluster b personality traits) so that he can receive proper help accordingly. Good luck.

I lost someone last year and I am in depression. You will give me some idea for relief depression.
What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
