Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Alcohol tends to worsen anxiety and so does nicotine. If you continue to smoke and drink, your anxiety will not remit. Also there is chance of other problems happening, like fearfulness, paranoia, etc. Your medication should never be taken with alcohol as the sedation may worsen, making you vulnerable to problems caused by over sedation (aspiration, accidental death, etc). Ideally for a proper recovery, you need to take the medication over a long period of time. The exact duration will be determined by your doctor depending on your response, compliance and improvement. Meditation, yoga and exercise are adjuvants to treatment, not replacement. If the condition is serious enough to warrant medication, merely doing these activities will not be sufficient. Lastly, these medications are not like Crocin or painkillers that you take them as and when you have a problem. If you want complete resolution of your symptoms, you need to take them as per the advice of your doctor and for the proper duration. This sort of experimentation is pointless and futile, with no benefit for you.

Is bipolar 3 completely treatable and patient returns to normal routine most of his life?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hello, in general bipolar disorder (irrespective of 1, 2, 3) are not completely curable. But with proper course of medicines & lifestyle management, one can lead a very healthy & productive life. In general, we advise 5 years of continued medicines for bipolar disorder. If patient remains symptom free for 5 years, we attempt to reduce & stop medicines. If during this period, symptoms return, then medicines are continued lifelong. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Ocd is a neurochemical disorder. Ocd is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the symptoms without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and ocd related therapy. Take care.

Hello I could understand how difficult it could be for you to lead this kind of life. Especially difficult part might be mental and emotional state of fear doubt and lack of confidence. Ups and down are part of life. And mental and emotional state are no different. You are facing a major obstacle which might be feeling like a block or darkness where nothing seems to make sense. As I listened to your life story above. I have a deep faith in you that you have the capability and competence both to come out of this hopelessness you are feeling right now. My understanding is that instead of a counselor or therapist a life coach would be a better fit for you. Life coach would help you get clarity about your present state and then will be able to lead you step by step to where you want to be by this year end. He or she will be able to get you into both planning and resource management - both internal and external as well as small weekly action steps towards long term goal and success. If you work with someone for 4 to 6 months you will be able to take a significant forward movement which will help you tap into both inner courage and confidence. Hope this helps. Wishing you very happy and successful life ahead.

You need to see a doctor preferably a psychiatrist urgently. Depression can be cured by just counselling. In the meantime, share your feelings with some one close to you. Join a friends group, laugh, dance, sing, play sports, exercise, take a break, refresh yourself.

I am suffering from erectile dysfunction and addict masturbation (2 to 3 times a day). I am 32 years old. Pl give me a solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Are you married? How do you know you have erectile dysfunction? If you are masturbating so often daily, you may not be suffering from ED. Masturbation is alright accept if you indulge in it too much. Once you indulge in it you will get so used to that that you may not want to relate to another person to experience full sex through intercourse. Go meet a sexologist and discuss your addiction. You will also need to exercise and play contact games. Do not be alone for too long, and do not spend time in the bathroom beyond what is necessary. Always be in the company of others, and be occupied with interesting activities. Hobbies are really good. Think less of sex, and certainly do not watch porn movies. Learn to appreciate women and love their company in a healthy way. You will enjoy good sex with the opposite sex, if your mind is not distracted by self-indulgence. I can tell you heterosexual contact is wonderful and wholesome. Don’t go for a poor replica of something so pleasureful

You need to take medication as per your doctor's recommendation. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change it in any way. Take it for the prescribed period of time. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse or worsening of symptoms. It becomes more difficult to treat after that.

I am 44 yrs old women, off late I feel, that no body gives importance to me, whether it is at office or at home. Only when people need approval / favour from me, they keep saying good about me. Even at home only when family needs my support or money from me, they pretend to be caring. I feel like living in an artificial world. This is making me irritable. I know that I cannot change them. How do I come out of this situation. Please suggest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

This is not the artificial world, it is the real world. And welcome to it. It may have nothing to do with your age but has a lot to do with the modern times. Everyone is out to see what they can get for themselves, and is very self-centered. Actually, that is not a problem because I am sure you do the same without realizing. It is bad when self-centered become selfish, and people do not just look for themselves, they ignore other people in the process, even if they are in need or in pain. We are all attention-seeking animals: you want attention, you go get it. Seriously, you have got to fend for yourself and take what you need and ask for what you want. If not, you will just get sidelined. One thing that can happen with age is that you can become lackadaisical and take things for granted. Then that is your fault. You must work to get attention and affection. Build strong bonds with the certain people you like and invest into those relationships to give you dividends at times like these. People have become time-serving leeches and don? t have time to spare for anything else unless it interests them, personally. It would be lovely to have us return to those good old days but the times are a changing and we have to learn to live with it. So there is no coming out of it per se but you want something go get it, period. Rough and tough world but we created it and we have to live in it.

There is no way you can nullify the harmful effects of smoking without giving it up. You can try nicotine gums and patches if you wish to abstain. Smoking for 2 months, generally does not predispose to cancer, but it is never too soon, to develop cancer. It generally does not sound like cancer yet, but I would still advise to quit smoking. Its uncool.

Hi. I am 27 years old. I had a medical abortion on 3rd March but it was incomplete. And hence I went through medical abortion again on 13th March. I am not bleeding heavy currently and feel stressed.

Why did you go for a medical abortion again if the first if the first one had failed. You should have gone for a d and c. My advise to you is that go for an ultrasound pelvis. If it shows products of conception present, get them removed asap.

I always talking with me and feel depressed. What's the solution. please help me?
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

Hi i have a friend in college who has been a patient of depression in the past. Her medications have been discontinued now. However she had developed strange sovial traits. She has become very extremely self conscious and completely lacks self confidence. She is very weak in studies, to the extent that she os struggling with graduation. Doesnt understand anything explained to her. Asks same questions again and again and again . Is very extremely lazy also. I can clearly see she needs medical aid. But probably not her parents as they r burdening her with studies and shes really facing a blunt behaviour from the society. Please twll me how can i help her psycologically and medically. Please suggest me some doctors or therapies whivh i can convey to her parents . Any sort of help would be highly highly solicited. Thanks

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I don't know why they had stopped the medication in the first place. Right now she is displaying all the signs that she is having a relapse and will need to go back to her doctor (physiatrist) and get immediate attention. She will not be able to succeed in her exams in this condition. She should also seek the continuous support of a counselor to learn to cope with other challenges in life. The combination of medicine and therapy will ideally suit her recovery, and more effectively too. Do not delay any more.

Dear lybrate user. Cigarette is addictive. One cigarette per day may not cause as much problems. But when time goes on, you will smoke more and more and that is why it is called addictive. Quit smoking. Take care.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, your recovery can be fastened.
