I am a 28 year old male and being treated for schizophrenia since may 2012. Initially started on tablets resperidone for a year thereafter switched over to invega sustena. I had to quit my job before I started medication. My positive symptoms disappeared around three months after starting treatment and the negative symptoms almost completely gone recently when I joined a job for six months staying away from home in a foreign land. I feel quite confident and well. During the past period I continued to drink moderately (around 120ml, two to three times a week), and smoke around 5-8 cigarettes a day. When can I stop taking medication?

I am amazed at your response to the treatment. You are doing unusually well and you must keep it up. Alcohol and smoking are really bad for you even in small quantities. I am concerned that you are not into therapy in conjunction with the medication. You will need this type of monitoring and help and they can tell you about the cessation of medicines. As far as I know, it is very rare to come off of medication with schizophrenia but in combination with psychotherapy you can explore this possibility, and especially because you have responded so well already. Doing a job and being functional is very important to your recovery. Also keeping away from family may be helpful because they can inadvertently trigger relapses easily, being the unit from which you developed the condition in the first place.

Im a short tempered person when anyone do something which I do not like or can't accept by me, i'll get to much anger in my mind.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction. Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the wellbeing of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets. So here are a few ways to deal with extreme anger. 1. Approve it / acknowledge it: the first step in solving a problem is recognizing that you have one. The fundamental problem here is that people believe they are on the right track and refuse to budge from their views. It is essential to realize that this step is not about deciding whether you are right or wrong, but acknowledging the fact that your reaction to the situation can be channelled in a better way. When getting someone to acknowledge their anger problem, be careful as to not use negative words like wrong, false and shouldn't. Instead, influence with positive words like can and should. Instead of saying'you are wrong to react like this' you can say'i understand what you are feeling. Is there a way we can resolve this situation? 2. Understand / recognize the signs: once you know that your problems exist, you can try devising ways that will work for you in dealing with the situation. You can count to 100 to calm yourself or simply decide to not speak until you can calm yourself. Knowing that you may enter into an argument in a situation, you can list down the points that you feel strongly about and discuss each of them one by one. Working your way through a finite list gives a better opportunity to reach closure at the end. 3. Free the mind/find ways to let it go: not all arguments end in closure. A lot of unsaid justifications cloud our mind repeatedly leaving us seething from the inside. Research has shown that the normal or neurological anger response lasts less than two seconds. Beyond that it takes a strong will to stay angry. Once you realize how much your anger is consuming your mind, decide to free your mind with meditation and other calming exercises. Tell yourself that some people and issues simply don't deserve your anger, emotion, reaction or time. If you or someone you know is suffering from anger management issues, consult a doctor today.

Hello sir, I have this weird problem where I dream In the morning all the time. Sometimes upto 6 hours a day. I make up alternate realities in my head. I dream that I'm another person with a better life Inside my head and sometimes I act like how that person would act. I unknowingly act out the conversations that" that" person is having inside my head. This is really affecting my life as I'm unable to concentrate and focus on my studies. I read somewhere that it might be maladaptive daydreaming and tried meditation but it did not help. Do I need to visit a doctor? If so what kind of Doctor? And if someone can say what kind of issue I might have It will be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

Dear lybrate-user, I think you are thinking too much. Dreams are not realities. Before concluding anything about dreams, you should know them. Day dreaming and night dreaming are two issues. Night dreaming is natural and it never lasts more than minutes. Your sleep might feel as if incomplete. That is all. The more you think about the dreams, the more you are worried. Obsession leads to worries and thereby anxiety disorder. Just leave the dreams alone and concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

My wife is schizophrenia patient, do not want to take medicine What will do? please suggest.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
In a patient with schizophrenia who is not taking medicines, should be assessed by a psychiatrist asap either in the clinical/hospital setting. But if the patient is not willing to visit a psychiatrist, the patient should be seen on a homevisit, and if the latter is not feasible, patient should be admitted directly. Intensive medications should be initiated with timely initiation of insight oriented psychotherapy. Long acting antipsychotic (medication) injectables are used for such patients quite frequently, which can be given once a fortnite or month for patients who have problems with compliance.

How can I increase my concentration level at the time of study I am not able to start my study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. You have not mentioned your age but I assume you are close to 20 years, in which case there may be hormonal changes going on in your system. You may therefore have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. If it is only starting trouble, then I suggest that you do group study or study with another friend but both need to be really serious.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Probably you are addicted to computer games. Please start playing actual physical games like football, basketball, cricket, or badminton, tennis etc. Or go for jogging or cycling, swimming etc. It will improve your physical and mental health. Restrict you computer time to only 1 hour per day. Getting addicted to computer games is very harmful. It will affect your physical health adversely. And you are already experiencing the ill effects on your mind. You are unable to differentiate between the actual and virtual world. Before it harms you further, control yourself, spend more time reading books, or pursue your hobby. Consult a counsellor if you need further assistance.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Hello. Sleeplessness can be age related or because of night watching/ due to stress & tension/ uncontrolled thoughts/ any underlying medical condition. Avoid watching T.V. at night, eat your food before 8pm, go for a walk 1&1/2hrs. after having food at night, eat light bland food. Take homeopathic medicines - Bacopa Monierri Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 20 days. Revert me back thereafter.
