Dear Lybrate-User, the same medicine lithium carbonate will be available in canada, not in the same name (lalithium xr). Please check on the dose, calculate total dose per day and check the strength of the tablet that is available. Take a summary of your husband's treatment and prescription from your doctor, to carry medicines for few months in canada. It is better to find a psychiatrist and check serum lithium level with newer company's lithium carbonate.

You did not mention what was the diagnsis, I guess it could be Bipolar disorder, Weight gain is commonly seen in patients while on Olanzepine and to some extent Lithium also (Lithic). When she is showing good response it is advisable not to change medication. To counter weight gain ask her to reduce or avoid fatty foods, and do exercise to the extent. Get her evaluated for possible reduction or change certain medication.

See there are different kinds of permanent teeth available in the market of dentistry Basic is full metal Cobalt Chromium steel material this is basically a full coverage steel crown for the teeth it is very strong and gives a steely look for the wearer particularly I suggest it to heavy non-veg users and old persons only. Secondly there is ceramic which is basically a coating of ceramic over the steel crown ceramic coating will be 1.5 mm thick so it would roughly last you for 10 years in normal wear and tear conditions. Third variant is CAD CAM ceramic which is nothing but ceramic crown prepared by CAD CAM computerised machine so it offers better fit and look for the patient Fourth variant is Zirconia i.e, Bruzir, 3m Lava crowns it is solid zirconia crown which is again prepared by milling solid zirconia block by CAD CAM machine it offers superior esthetics and strength for the crown since it doesnot contain any metal it is esthetically better while you smile and it is the best in terms of biocompatibility with the gingival tissues So I leave it to you to decide which crown you want to go Pricing varies for different crowns in different cities I would like to give you rough rates according to IDA from 1500 for metal crown to 10000 per crown for zirconia.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. 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 depressive episodes 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 depression related therapy. Take care.
