Dear lybrate-user, How long the medication will continue depends upon why you are taking them and what is the severity of your symptoms. Usually the anti depressants are taken for at least 6 months and then it has to be continued depending on your response to medications. If you are suffering from side effects please consult psychiatrist who can adjust the dose or change the medication. Thanks

Hello Dr. I am 28 year old married women. I have ocd problem last 10 years for ocd I take rexipra fx 10 mg, daxid 100 mg, uvox 100 mg. I want baby but my gynecologist said this medicine causes any birth defect to baby or any mental health problem to baby. So my question is can homeopathy medicine is effected in ocd and safe in whole pregnancy. Does not causes any birth defect and mental health? Problem please Dr. Reply my answer.

MBBS, D.P.M, MD, PLAB, MRCPsych
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user, Thank you for the question and I can see how difficult this situation may seem to you. But the good news is that patient with OCD can continue the treatment and can have a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. You have been prescribed the medications which belong to the class of antidepressants called SSRI. The evidence suggests that the risk of increase in chances of your baby getting affected due to these medication is only slight. I would also like to recommend that you visit your psychiatrist and let them know that you want to conceive. Your psychiatrist can start you on the medication which is the safest and in the minimal effective dose. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, I am sorry that you are suffering so much. It is necessary to do a detailed workup which includes blood tests like your vitamin and thyroid levels. It is also necessary to take a detailed history of your symptoms to come up with a diagnosis. From what you have described it seems that you are suffering from anxiety disorder. The treatment of anxiety disorder consists of medications and psychological therapy. I would suggest that you see a psychiatrist in person for a comprehensive evaluation. Meanwhile, the are things that you can try yourself to combat anxiety:- regular exercise and brisk walking - meditation and yoga - keep a diary and note down how often you get anxious and what are the triggers and what helped you in that situation. Hope this helps Thanks.

I have been prescribed with lonazep 0.5 mg anxiety and sleeplessness. I am taking the tablets for the past 10 months. As per doctors advise I tried to reduce the dosage to 0.25 mg so that I could stop the dosage slowly. But whenever I try to reduce the dosage after 10 days I get anxiety and sleeplessness .As a result I get nervous and panicked for the next few days thinking if I would not get sleep due to which i am forced to go back to taking 0.5 mg. Can you please advise on how to stop taking the pill?

Dear lybrate-user, It must be difficult for you. It is important to explore the reason for your anxiety and not just take lonazep. Sleep problem is very common symptom in anxiety disorder, depression and for that matter in any mental health disorder. It is also common in certain medical condition like thyroid problems. I will recommend that you get a detailed evaluation done which includes blood test and seeing a psychiatrist to get to the root of problem. There are things that can be done to improve sleep: Dos:- Make sure that your bed and bedroom are comfortable - not too hot, not too cold, not too noisy. - Get some exercise. Don't overdo it, but try some regular swimming or walking. The best time to exercise is in the daytime - particularly late afternoon or early evening. Later than this can disturb your sleep. - Take some time to relax properly before going to bed..- If something is troubling you and there is nothing you can do about it right away, try writing it down before going to bed and then tell yourself to deal with it tomorrow. - If you can't sleep, get up and do something relaxing. Read, watch television or listen to quiet music. After a while, you should feel tired enough to go to bed again. Don'ts - Go to bed when you feel tired and stick to a routine of getting up at the same time every day, whether you still feel tired or not. - Caffeine hangs around in your body for many hours after your last drink of tea or coffee. There are now many fizzy drinks, and even mints, that contain a lot of caffeine. Stop drinking tea or coffee by mid-afternoon. If you want a hot drink in the evening, try something milky or herbal (but check there's no caffeine in it). - Don't eat or drink a lot late at night. Try to have your supper early in the evening rather than late. - If you've had a bad night, don't sleep in the next day - it will make it harder to get off to sleep the following night. Hope you will find it helpful. Thanks

I am 20 years old. I live in a rural area (village). For the last 3-4 years I feel like I don't want anyone around me. I feel much better alone. I don't like to talk much to large no of people. I don't feel comfortable when I sit between so many people and I don't have much to talk n discuss with them. I am from himachal but now m studying in Punjab pursuing medicine. So during my holidays I don't like to visit home I like to stay in hostel. I don't like to talk much to other people ,although I had never been like that, I used to be very cheerful person. When I was 11 I was sexually touched I a very bad way but I never told about this to anyone, n that was my uncle n from that time I feel so depressed. It happened to me 3 times but I never told anyone. Whenever I am alone I feel so bad starts crying without any reason. I don't have much friends. Its difficult for me to make friends. N all my friendships never lasts long. Sometimes I feel like nobody needs me n I should die but I can't.its like sudden attack of sadness when I am alone without any reason. Sometimes I remember bad things that happens to me in past and starts crying, although I try much not to remember those. But all in vain. Even in family functions I don't like to take part, I try best to not interact with anyone .these things make me very depressed. Whenever I sit between other people I couldn't talk becoz I feel like they will make fun of me. I don't like to go home. Sometimes so many bad things are going on in my head and I can't help myself. I don't like to play now. I had always been teased at home becoz during my childhood I use to dance like girls. But sexually I am straight n nothing wrong with my sexual life. But whenever many people try to talk about their childhood I feel like to rush away from that place, may be becoz they will make fun of my activities. Many people told me like you look like a girl when I was 13 and up to 15. But m OK sexually n straight. But I don't know why if anyone say me this now I feel like I should stab that person. I feel so depressed n this affects my studies alot. Although I am very good student n one of 5 toppers of my class. But besides that I take so much time to prepare the whole syllabus at a time becoz these bad things continuously run in head n distract me away from my studies. I cry a lot when I am alone. I always live in fantasies that m above the sky becoz I have so many dreams in my life. But I always stop myself, that what will people say to me. I feel so stressed at least 4 days in a week. I had many bad experiences in my life. I had always wanted to be far away from my home n now finally I m. I always feel like to migrate to any such place where nobody knows me n even I don't know anyone there .I want myself to be so far from those who know me. I want to go under plastic surgery so that people don't recognise me .n want to start a new life on my own conditions. I have been teased on so many unnecessary topics by family friends and those things makes me so anxious n depressed. I want them to kill away but I can't do this. E.g I like cooking, so they will say that its for girls and starts to call me girls n a woman. These things look very small reason to others but these affected my childhood a lot. I never wanted to see them again. So just my ques is m I dealing with depression or something else? please help me n advice me, how can I overcome to this?

I am Suffering from Bipolar disorder. Should I take Risp 1 mg (half) before Dinner. Please advise
Dear lybrate-user, There are a lot of effective medications (mood stabilisers) available for bipolar mood disorder. However,these medications differ in their mechanism of action and side effect profiles. The dose of the medications also has to be adjusted for every patient so as to have maximum benefit with minimal side effect. I will strongly recommend that you should not self treat but start treatment only under the supervision of a qualified psychiatrist. Hope you find this helpful.
