My father is 74 years old, he forgets everything like where he worked, what is home address etc, now days he wants to go out of the house frequently, once he had gone and didn`t returned one whole night, luckly we found him, what is his problem and treatment also.

Usually in old age, gradually memory power vl b decreased, along vth the decline in activity of brain function. But here, your father's condition, v can think of more rapid decline. Diseases like geriatric dementia (its a c/o related to memory loss in old age, alzheimer's, parkinson's disease r other any other neurological c/o shouldb excluded, where dopamine levels gradually come down. So, once take your father to show a neurologist to get ptoper check up, so that the diagnosis could b done, accordingly the t/talso as per requiremnt. Dont delay.

Since my friend get ill she goes in depressions so that I am stressed. Please help me.

Since my friend get ill she goes in depressions so that I am stressed. Please help me.
It seems that due to her illness feeling low. At this age sometimes even a small thing could create deeper trauma and emotional turmoil. I would suggest to take her to a counselor or a psychologist. She needs to talk to someone who can understand her situation and reassure her about her recovery. You can also suggest her to try following things. If you both can team up and so these things together it will be easier for her. And of course if will benefit you as well as you are also feeling quite a lot of stress yourself. One or other kind of stress has become part of our life these days. Due to stress we start having more negative thoughts and emotions. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. 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.

It's good that you have decided to quit smoking and drinking. To assist you in doing so besides your strong will power you also need medicinal assistance to overcome the withdrawal symptoms. I suggest you to take homeopathic medicines for that. These medicines are very effective and are without any side effects.

Hi, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety recently by a psychologist. He prescribes me only medications and no therapy but I think they are dangerous and have many side effects. Should I discontinue treatment?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
First of all psychiatrists can only prescribe medications, psychologist cannot as they are not doctors. If psychiatrist has prescribed you medication it means that your condition needs it. You have not mentioned what medicines have been prescribed but most of the medicines to treat anxiety or depression are pretty safe and not many side effects. So you can safely take them.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.

Negative thinking is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop self esteem and make friends with positive thinking people. 2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect 3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements 4 don't keep doubting yourself. 5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule 6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food. 7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 8. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 9 keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction 10. If you still want some medicine, take homoeopathic medicine alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily.

Hi lybrate-user, your elder brother is suffering from alcohol dependance syndrome. Which is a medical disorder. He is unable to quit at his own, rather not motivated to quit. There are proper treatment of alcohol deaddiction. For this you probaby have to admit him under a psychiatrist trained in deaddiction. There he wll need detoxification treatment; intense psychotherapy e. G. Motivation therapy, relapse prevention therapy, assertive therapy etc. He will also need antcraving therapy. A through gastrointestinal checkup is also required by a gastroenterologist. Hope with proper guidance n family support your brother can be helped.

Dear lybrate-user, IBS and anxiety go together in the same person. Panic attacks are also common in such disorders. Come online text or audio with all reports and the details of medicines tried so far, chemical name, dose, duration of intake, side effect, benefit % though not 100%. You may need 18-20 weekly sessions to change your thoughts.

Therapy along cognitive behavioural therapy will help. Start by recognising your thought processes just before and during a panic attack. Medication may have some benefit but unlikely to cure it on its own.

Dear user. Confidence is directly proportional to your experience. The more you have experience on a particular aspect of life, the more confidence you will have on that aspect of life. Personality development training and therapy could help you in building confidence. Take care.

Hello lybrate user.....This is good that you can relate your problems to smoking cigarettes and the good news is that you definitely can quit it completely. The bad news is that smoking cigarettes for long time is nicotine addiction which causes structural changes in our brain due to which quitting it becomes difficult. Usually people start smoking with friends just for experimentation and later for enjoyment and still later to relieve stress in life, but what they forget is that gradually smoking becomes a compulsion in their life and then whenever a stressful situation arises they smoke. Nicotine hijacks the pleasure seeking center in our brain and this hence the previously pleasure giving food items or activities are no more pleasurable to the same extent. You start spending more and more time in obtaining and enjoying smoking cigarettes. We have medications which decreases craving and helps in quitting smoking completely. Along with medications making simple changes in lifestyle and bringing about stress management in life can have miraculous help in quitting smoking addiction. I hope that you quit smoking in the near future and resume a healthy life. Take care

I am aged 38. I have been married for 12 years. I lost interest in sex even since I came to know that my husband is a womanizer. But has been just offering myself physically due to fear of breaking marriage. I have two kids now. Somehow hate when he tries to have sex with me. He has no feelings towards me but just want to try out mechanically as if I am an object. How do I get rid of this. He never understands. Feel like divorcing him. As there is no bonding but is forced to stay back due to financial burden as I have two kids (I also work and earn well). How to get rid of such difficult situations?Please help sir .

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user I can understand your turmoil and suffering. I will just suggest a few pointers 1: it is natural for you to feel the loathing towards a womanizer husband. You mentioned you submit to him just to keep the marriage. 2: think about this, normally two people marry and it is expected that they satisfy each other's sexual needs. As long as you feel you loathe him. Your sexual experience is only filled with your hatred for him and thus. A self loathing towards yourself! ask yourself do you hate your self for being and remaining in this situation? 3: if you decided to push aside his womanizing patterns, is he a good husband to you and good provider for his children and you? can you recall any romantic or feelings of love for him? 4: if the answer is negative, and as you said you are earning well yourself, the next question is" why are you opting out to stay with him and hurt yourself by hating him? because your hatred hurts only you and not him. He is enjoying his life assuming you are fine with it the way it is or you can not stop him. 5: so you have a choice to make. There is no medication, no miracle cures, or no god or or saints even black magic to cure him of his womanizing. Either you stay in this marriage and hurt your own self or you get out of it and find your own peace of mind. 6: children always adapt as they grow and some day when you look back they will understand and in fact protect you.

Hello, I am 27 years old. Sometimes I feel very nervous. How to overcome this situation? Please tell me.
Dear Utpal. Nervousness is anxiety. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.
