Medications for anxiety and depression are completely safe if taken under the guidance and supervision of a psychiatrist. Medications may need to be titrated and changed according to age, tolerability and level of response reached from time to time. Side effects though many may not occur in every person, hence they are to managed individually for every patient. Consult your treating psychiatrist if you feel like facing any side effects.

You must not wake up for late night. Wash your eyes two three times in a day. Take homeo medicine nux vomica 30 thrice a day three drops in water for one day only. And kali phos 12 x four tablets at night only one day only. Call back.

Cognitive dysfunction can possibly be attributed to both: your illness, as well as the medications you are taking. It is however essential that you take the medication as prescribed by your psychiatrist. Do not modify, alter, stop or change any medications on your own. The best thing would be to approach your treating doctor with this problem so that they can make any changes (if required) in your prescription.

The antisynthetase syndrome associated with anti-jo-1-antibodies requires long-term immunosuppressive therapy in most patients. Whereas a complete clinical response of muscular symptoms is frequent, continued deterioration of the pulmonary system may occur despite immunosuppressive treatment, and may lead to fatal outcome. 2. Epilepsy cannot be cured completely, treatment helps to reduce symptoms.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. A transvestite is a person who likes to wear the clothes of the opposite sex. Your problem is called transvestcism. There is nothing to be worried of. This is another impulse disorder and can be treated with the help oc counseling and cognitive behavior therapy (cbt). Take care.

If it is coming at this age there is something that is rising up from your childhood. Kindly meet with a counselor along with your parents and see what they find out. If the counselor decides that you should see a doctor kindly make that appointment too and cooperate with both the therapies. If it is tackled early the prognosis will be good.

I have been told I suffer from OCD which is resistant to medicines. That means medicines won't help me. What do I do? When I started medicines for OCD I was told I have to take them for only 6 months but now it's more than 10 years and I still am told to take medicines. I wonder if they aren't curing me why should I take them? At present I take Serta (100) 1-0-2; Axepta (25) 1-0-0; Zapiz (0.5) 1-1-1; Fluanxol (0.5) 1-1-1; Amitone (25) 1-1-0. Inspite of all these I wash hands too much. Skin on my hands hurts. Also I have been told these medicine have side-effects and they can harm liver & kidneys in the long run. Is there any way to live without medicines and also get rid of OCD?

Hello it is unfortunately true that ocd is one of the most difficult problem to treat for the doctor and to experience for the patient. Every medicine has side effects for sure but they are much less harmful than the disease itself. Already you have poor control of symptoms for 10 long years. I think you should get full knowledge about ocd first. I suggest the website www. Nimhans. Ac. In, you can find a link for ocd clinic and material for general public. It is a very good information in hindi. I can treat you but it will be a long and continuous process. You can consult on line but it may take up to 8-12 weeks before you find any reduction in symptoms. We can also introduce psychological treatment which is quite effective in combination with medicine

I smoke every day n I m addicted to it. I m smoking from the age of 16 now I m 18 what should I do I feel very bad from inside while smoking cigerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The discomfort you are feeling inside is very good because it can trouble you enough to help quitting. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Anybody can tell me how to grow our mind sharply.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

The treatment of depression usually remits in6-9 months and than medicines can be discontinued gradually. But compliance need to be taken care of. If again the problems comes than usually the course goes for next two yrs and still recurrent depression is there than the medicines have to be continued for next 5 yr to life time varying person to person.

I want to control a smoking my age is 23 I want to leave a smoke because I working I have a pressure so that only I am smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Deal with the pressure that you have mentioned with a counselor and it will make it easier. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear Mayank, Overthinking is not necessariliy a sign of OCD. However, assuming that your condition is indeed OCD, and it completely settles with fluvoxamine, the key thing to look for here is the duration of treatment. very often, the symptoms re-emerge because of premature stoppage of medicines. So first thing is to do a detailed interview and rectify these things. Psychotherapy (in the form of BT or CBT or CT) ca be done to make you self reliant and wean you off medications.But this will need considerable effort and time from your side as well as from the therapist. But that is really the way to go if you want to stop medicines. Take care!
