Dear , sleep disturbance is often a first symptom of stress/depression/anxiety. Kindly see the following questions:- 1. Do you enjoy the pleasurable things like watching favourite tv serial or music as you used to enjoy earlier? 2. Do you like talking to others or you prefer to be alone now a days? 3. Do you feel sad most of the time and think negative about future? 4. Do you have enough sound sleep, do you feel fresh at morning? 5. Do you ever think yourself guilty of whatever wrong happened to you? 6. Do you feel yourself devoid of energy always? 7. Do you have lost concentration in job/ confidence in self? if more than 03 of the above answer are in yes in your case then you appears to be stressed and depressed. In anxiety disorder the patient always have ongoing anxiety on minor day to day issues, patient feels himself/ herself on the edge always and experience worry, preoccupation with negative thinking, insomnia and poor self confidence. Person hesitates and avoids many things leading to serious social and occupational dysfunction. If you have these issues, kindly get yourself treated first for it. It will restore your sleep also.

How to control my stress during exams as I always put myself in trouble during exams.

How to control my stress during exams as I always put myself in trouble during exams.
First thing about exams is anxiety n what causes anxiety would be your unknown fear for it. Lets be clear about what is the reason behind your anxiety. If your preparation is not going well or if you fear of the results or are you just scared of the environment in the exam room. Once you get to know the unlying reason for your anxiety you can also think about what you can do to overcome it. Hope its helpful.

Kleptomania is an impulse control disorder, but very often there is an underlying emotional disorder which triggers the problem. This requires evaluation of personality and understanding the underlying causes. The treatment is effective if the patient, relatives and therapist work as a team.

Dear Puja, i am not sure that Gaurav is suffering from clinical depression. Depression may be a part of some other neurological illness. Probably that is why Cognistar was prescribed. Find out his diagnosis clearly. Any drug has to be weighed for its benefit vs harm. There is no drug which is absolutely safe. So will be Cognistar.

Hi. I have a feeling of stress inside me neck and sometimes it also comes over my nose. I was a smoker for around 9 months but I quit 4 months ago. I have been getting this lump in throat problem for around 1 and half year. Had an endoscopy done but nothing came out. The ENT guy said I just have acid reflux and gave me medicines. The medicines helped me for few days but as soon as the course completed it came back. Can you suggest me a permanent solution for this problem?

Dear friend, congrats for quitting smoking. Now just relax and do these__ gargle twice daily with luke warm water and little bit of salt in this. Increase your water intake. A cup of boiled and cooled milk twice daily will also help. Tell your progress after 15 days to guide further.

Dear Rishabh, Alcohol and nicotine 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 and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I started on 10mg.

Dear Karan, Welcome to lybrate. 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.
