Is it safe to continuously use fluoxetine hydrochloride for 4 years. Does it produce any side effect ?

Psychological testing must be done to confirm what illness one is suffering from - is it psychiatric illness requiring medicines from psychiatrist or is it psychological problems that need to be treated by a psychologist through counselling and psychotherapy. Psychologist is the specialist for psychological testing and treatment without medicines. Based on reports, psychologist will gide you, what treatment is required.

Hi I am 28 year old male and I am suffering from anxiety from the past few years. And it gets worse when there is someone counting on me or when I have to perform and I mess things up. I try to stay calm and do yoga which helps but certainly not upto the point where I would feel confident doing day to day task. It shatters my confidence and lately I have been very low on confidence. I know I should not compare myself with others but I feel that I can deliver but when I have to my nervous system just gives up. My hands go cold and heart starts pounding and it takes days of rest to stop thinking about an incident. I look very weak certainly I was not like this. But after taking a medication for hair loss named propecia it has made my symptoms worse. I gave up that medication all of a sudden and have never been the same ever since. Normally I would be fine but I keep thinking negative thoughts of things I dint do well at office meetings and how I got nervous. I need help. I feel I expect too much from myself. I want to be confident like I used to be. Please help me.

You are suffering from performance anxiety, which comes from high expectations. The anxiety is bordering on hysteria too. Prior to the performance, there is existence and there may lie some issue that is unresolved. Where you, for example, rejected or told that you are not as good in doing things as others in the family? These questions must be explored with a counselor and the necessary help may be provided to resolve this issue. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Homeopath,
I am suffering from severe depression, repetitive negative thoughts, tobacco addiction, fatigue.Please tell.
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Why should you concentrate on depression? Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. Don’t feel guilty about anything. So, don’t seek for the symptoms of depression and just throw out the thought that you are depressed.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , you do not have any unique problem to worry about. I know you are referring to education related memory. You are young and therefore there are no chances of having amnesia type of mental problems. Earlier days children were distracted by outdoor games and indoor games and other entertaining activities so they forget. Nowadays you are distracted by mobile or laptop. In any case, lack of interest in studies are a problem. You need to cultivate interest in your studies. For that you need to have specific goals and aspiration. These goals and aspiration provides internal motivation and there by you cultivate interest in your studies. Please set a goal after analyzing many aspects like your interests, skills, aptitudes etc. Once set, whatever may happen, do not change it and set course and path to achieve the goal. Automatically you will remember whatever you learned, if you learn with interest' effective learning methods' should help you. Post a private question if you want more help on this regard. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. Your liver disintegrates alcohol, absorbs the poison part and releases good ingredients to the blood. That means, to save body, liver sacrifices itself. Even a drop of alcohol is not good for liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.
