The effects of long-term benzodiazepine use include drug dependence as well as the possibility of adverse effects on cognitive function, physical health, and mental health. Benzodiazepines are generally effective when used therapeutically in the short-term. Most of the problems associated with benzodiazepines result from their long-term use. There are significant physical, mental and social risks associated with the long-term use of benzodiazepines. Although anxiety can temporarily increase as a withdrawal symptom, there is evidence that a reduction or withdrawal from benzodiazepines can lead in the long run to a reduction in anxiety symptoms. Due to these increasing physical and mental symptoms from long-term use of benzodiazepines, slowly withdrawing from benzodiazepines is recommended for many long-term users. Not everyone, however, experiences problems with long-term use. Some of the symptoms that could possibly occur as a result of a withdrawal from benzodiazepines after long-term use include emotional clouding, flu-like symptoms, nausea, headaches, dizziness, irritability, lethargy, sleep problems, memory impairment, personality changes, aggression, depression, social deterioration as well as employment difficulties, while others never have any side effects from long term benzodiazepine use. One should never abruptly stop using this medicine and should wean themself down to a lower dose under doctor supervision. While benzodiazepines are highly effective in the short term, adverse effects in some people associated with long-term use including impaired cognitive abilities, memory problems, mood swings, and overdoses when combined with other drugs may make the risk-benefit ratio unfavourable, while others experience no ill effects. In addition, benzodiazepines have reinforcing properties in some individuals and thus are considered to be addictive drugs especially in individuals that have a" drug-seeking" behavior; in addition, a physical dependence can develop after a few weeks or months of use. Many of these adverse effects of long-term use of benzodiazepines begin to show improvements three to six months after withdrawal. Other concerns about the effects of long-term benzodiazepine use, in some, include dose escalation, benzodiazepine abuse, tolerance and benzodiazepine dependence and benzodiazepine withdrawal problems. Both physiological tolerance and dependence can lead to a worsening of the adverse effects of benzodiazepines. Increased risk of death has been associated with long-term use of benzodiazepines in several studies, however, other studies have not found increased mortality. Due to conflicting findings in studies regarding benzodiazepines and increased risks of death including from cancer, further research in long-term use of benzodiazepines and mortality risk has been recommended. Most of the research has been conducted in prescribed users of benzodiazepines; even less is known about the mortality risk of illicit benzodiazepine users. The long-term use of benzodiazepines is controversial and has generated significant controversy within the medical profession. Views on the nature and severity of problems with long-term use of benzodiazepines differ from expert to expert and even from country to country; some experts even question whether there is any problem with the long-term use of benzodiazepines. However, if you are using benzodiazepines according to prescription and not overusing them, i. E. Not using as needed in increasing doses to relieve your anxiety, you are at no higher risk compared to other antidepressants.

What are the ways to gain confidence?. I know it is not a health related question but I want to know about it.
Whenever you feel nervous just take 10-12 deep breaths and calm down your mind. And start doing meditation too. This also helps in gaining confidence.

I am 20 years old and I feel depression because of my study I am in engineering and simultaneously I am in love with someone what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

It would be best if you sit down with him and speak your heart out. You need to resolve the situation it can not go on like this forever otherwise one of you will fall apart. Ask him very politely as to what he feels, wishes, what is lacking in the relation. A person gets attracted outside relation usually when something is lacking in one's own relationship you need to build up on that. Ask him what does he want out of the relation, have a open heart to heart conversation. Share your wishes, desires your kid's future. Consult with me for counseling and guidance regarding same. All the best.

Hi, you need to learn to manage your stress. You can discuss with me to learn stress management at work. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.

I have 24yrs old i'm using the hans and tobacco in previous 2years I couldn't stop now how can I out from this happens.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can?t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking and consuming Hans. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

My father drink regularly due to which some problems are occurred. I want they do not drink so what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It sounds like he is an advanced stage of alcoholism and needs admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help him deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit his by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent.

No. Stop smoking Dr. Aravinda jawali pharmacological treatments to help quit smoking why is it so hard to quit smoking? you have probably heard this before" smoking is so bad for you. Why do you do it" people start smoking for different reasons. They might think it will help calm their nerves, make them look more mature, or maybe at the time it just seemed sort of adventurous. Looking back, it was not the best choice. Many people really want to quit, but why is quitting so hard? it is hard to quit smoking because the nicotine in cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products gets you hooked and keeps you hooked. Most people try as many as three times to quit before they are able to do so. Look at smoking cessation as a process instead of a one-time event. That way, if you do slip, you can focus on what you can do differently to prevent future slips and relapse. Don? t give up? you will get there. You have probably heard a lot about how smoking is harmful, but here are some positive things you can look forward to when you do quit. If you quit, you will: prolong your life improve your health feel healthier (smoking can cause coughing, poor athletic ability, and sore throats.) look better (smoking can cause face wrinkles, stained teeth, and dull skin.) improve your sense of taste and smell save money (most smokers spend about $90 a month on cigarettes.) smoking increases complications for those who have diabetes. While smoking can increase your chances of getting diabetes, it can also make managing diabetes more difficult for those who already have it. Smoking-related complications of diabetes could include retinopathy (eye disease), heart disease, stroke, vascular disease, kidney disease, nerve damage, and/or foot problems. What options do people have? some people try quitting on their own before they go to their doctor, but your doctor can be very helpful. He or she may offer tips and suggest medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter, to help you" kick the habit" it is also important to tell your doctor what types of products you might use or are using to quit smoking. The doctor can make sure that suggested products will not interact with other medicines you are already taking. Remember, there is no" magic bullet" when it comes to quitting smoking. Quitting requires persistent effort. Over-the-counter medicines nicotine-based medicines over-the-counter medicines that contain nicotine can be very helpful in fighting off cravings. These products will not remove all cravings, but you can use them instead of smoking to reduce your nicotine intake gradually and ease off of its addictive effects. When you give your body a steady dose of nicotine all the time and then stop suddenly, you will have more side effects (withdrawal symptoms) that usually make quitting a lot harder. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, headache, and the craving to smoke. Go slow and lower the dose gradually with nicotine-based products until you feel you are able to resist the cravings on your own. You will still have cravings, but they will be weaker. It is very important to have some form of social support when you decide to quit, no matter if you use products or not. Support can come from your doctor, counselor, support group, close friend, or a family member. When considering a nicotine-based product to help you quit, be sure to tell your doctor about any conditions you might have, especially: asthma or breathing problems heart or blood vessel disease high blood pressure stomach ulcer diabetes mellitus kidney disease liver disease overactive thyroid pheochromocytoma (pcc) over-the-counter treatments are typically used for up to 12 weeks as part of a smoking cessation program. Additional things to consider when taking nicotine-based medicines do not smoke while you are using the nicotine-based medicines. You could risk overdosing on nicotine. Tell your doctor about any medicines you are taking or any allergies you have. Do not use the nicotine-based medicines if you are breastfeeding, are pregnant, or think you might be pregnant. Keep this and all medicines out of the reach of children and pets. Common brand names of the nicotine patch, gum, and lozenge include: nicorelief (gum) nicorette (gum) nicoderm cq (patch) commit (lozenge) transdermal nicotine patch the patch is worn directly on the skin. Nicotine passes through the skin into your bloodstream. Some brands have patches with different strengths so you can gradually reduce your dosage. Nicotine patches are available without a prescription. If you are not sure what kind of patch to use, ask your doctor. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using the nicotine patch: patches are supplied in child-resistant pouches; save the pouch for disposal of the patch. Find a clean, dry part of the skin to apply it. Somewhere on your upper arm or torso usually works best. Try to find an area that has little hair and is without scars, cuts, burns, or rashes. Right before applying the patch, wash your hands and the skin area with plain soap and water and dry completely. Avoid using any soap, lotion, hand cream, tanning lotion or oil, bath oil or insect repellent that contains aloe, lanolin or glycerin as a moisturizer since these agents can leave a moisturizing film on your skin, which can potentially interfere with the adherence of the patch. When you have finished applying or removing the patch, wash your hands with water only. Do not try to adjust the dosage by cutting the patch into sections. Leave the patch on, even while bathing or swimming. If it falls off, do not try to re-apply it. Use a new one remove the patch according to the instructions on the box (usually after 16 to 24 hours). Dispose by folding sticky ends of the patch together and putting in pouch. When applying a new patch, choose a different place than before. Do not use the patch in the same place for at least a week. Do not leave the patch on for longer than directed. Remove the patch if you are going to do rigorous exercise. This might cause more nicotine to pass into your bloodstream. If you are unsure how to use the product, be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain. Remove the patch if you are having a magnetic resonance imaging (mri) scan. Nicotine patches contain aluminum. If you have vivid dreams or other sleep disturbances, try removing the patch at bedtime and applying a new one in the morning. Common side effects of the nicotine patch: increased appetite mild headache irritation at the site of the patch, including itching, burning, or redness there are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully, and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine gum nicotine gum, like the patch, is a systemic way to receive nicotine. This means that the nicotine in the gum passes from the lining of your mouth right into your bloodstream. Like the patch, you will decrease the dosage during the recommended time (usually 12 weeks or sooner) if you are able to resist cravings on your own. Nicotine gum is sold without a prescription. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using nicotine gum: use nicotine gum only when you feel the urge to smoke. Slowly chew the gum until you begin to taste it or feel a tingling sensation in your mouth. Then stop chewing and park it between your cheek and gum. This helps release the nicotine. When the taste or tingling is almost gone, repeat these two steps for 30 minutes. Use only one piece at a time. Do not drink beverages (e. G, soft drinks, tea, coffee, and fruit juices) or eat food 15 minutes before or while chewing the gum. Gradually decrease the number of pieces of gum you chew per day, until you reach three to six pieces per day. Some people can do this in less than 12 weeks. Do not chew more than twenty-four pieces in 1 day. Try to have the nicotine gum handy at all times. You might try hard candy or using regular gum, if the nicotine gum is not available. Nicotine gum can be difficult to use if you have dentures. Common side effects of nicotine gum: belching (burping), gas, or heartburn increased appetite mild headache watery mouth jaw or muscle pain or fatigue sore mouth or throat nausea hiccups there are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine lozenge a nicotine lozenge, like the patch and gum, is a systemic way to receive nicotine. This means that the nicotine in the lozenge passes from the lining of your mouth right into your bloodstream. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are a few things to remember when using the nicotine lozenges: place the lozenge in your mouth; wait until it dissolves completely; and move it around from time to time without chewing. It takes around 20 to 30 minutes to dissolve. Do not take more than one lozenge at a time or continuously use one lozenge after the other, this can cause hiccups, heartburn, or nausea. Do not eat or drink 15 minutes prior to, during, or after use. Do not use more than five lozenges in 6 hours or more than twenty lozenges in 24 hours. Prescription medicines nicotine nasal spray nicotine that can help you stop smoking also comes in the form of a nasal spray, available only by prescription. Like the patch and the gum, the amount taken is gradually decreased during a period of 12 weeks. It is to be used, like the gum and the patch, as part of a program that also includes support, education, and counseling. Nicotrol ns is one brand of nicotine nasal spray. Always follow the instructions on the prescription label. Here are some other things to remember when using nicotine nasal spray: blow your nose prior to use. You may gradually reduce your dose of nasal spray by skipping doses or using only half the usual amount. Writing down the time you take the nasal spray and how much you take might be very useful when reducing your dose. Common side effects of nicotine nasal spray: back pain constipation coughing indigestion or nausea runny nose sneezing watery eyes headache a burning feeling in the back of the throat or nose the nicotine nasal spray is not recommended for people with reactive airway disorders such as asthma. In addition, caution is urged in patients with chronic nasal disorders. There are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Nicotine inhalant a nicotine inhalant? available only by prescription? used for up to 6 months (initial treatment period up to 12 weeks followed by gradual reduction period of up to 12 weeks) can be part of a smoking cessation program. When the inhaler is used, nicotine passes from the lining of the mouth and throat (not the lungs) into the bloodstream. Like other nicotine products, you will decrease the dosage during the recommended time (usually several weeks) or until you are able to resist cravings on your own. Nicotrol inhaler is one brand name of nicotine inhalant. Always follow the instructions on the box, but here are some things to remember when using a nicotine inhalant: store the inhaler in a dry area at room temperature not to exceed 77 f or 25 c. Write down the time you take the inhalant and how much you take. This might be very useful when reducing your dose. The normal first dose is between six and sixteen cartridges per day. Common side effects of nicotine inhalants: coughing indigestion mouth and throat irritation stuffy nose or runny nose there are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the information that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Bupropion bupropion is more commonly seen under the brand names of zyban or wellbutrin. Zyban is specifically indicated for smoking cessation. It is not a nicotine-based medicine; it is an antidepressant that is only available by prescription. It is prescribed along with counseling and support to aid in smoking cessation. Bupropion might also be used to treat major depressive disorders. It usually takes 2 weeks for bupropion to take effect, so plan to quit smoking 2 weeks after beginning the treatment. Before considering bupropion, be sure to inform your physician if you have a history of seizure disorder, bulimia, or anorexia nervosa. Bupropion comes in tablets that are to be swallowed whole, not crushed, divided, or altered in any other way. Individual prescription strengths might vary, so if you are taking bupropion, be sure to follow the directions on the label. Ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about how to take it, when to take it, any potential side effects, and the duration of treatment. Common side effects of bupropion: dry mouth sweating insomnia rash headache dizziness anxiety restlessness irritability indigestion decreased appetite there are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the medication guide that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. Do not take bupropion if you have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (maoi) within the last 14 days. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors are used to treat depression. Some examples include: tranylcypromine (parnate), phenelzine (nardil), and isocarboxazid (marplan). There are several products that might interact with bupropion, so be sure to tell your doctor about any over-the-counter and/or prescription medicines, as well as any herbal supplements you are taking. While taking bupropion, immediately report any psychological changes (e. G, new onset depression) to your doctor. Varenicline (chantix) varenicline, also known by the brand name chantix, is a prescription medication that does not contain nicotine. This medicine helps to reduce the reinforcing effects of nicotine and can minimize the withdrawal effects from nicotine. It is recommended to set a quit date 1 week after initiation of varenicline therapy. Typically, this medication is taken for a minimum of 12 weeks accompanied by smoking cessation counseling. If you have stopped smoking, another 12 weeks of varenicline might be prescribed. If you have not stopped smoking after the first 12 weeks, stop taking this medication and return to your doctor for advice. Varenicline should be taken with food and a full glass (8 ounces) of water. Varenicline can interact with over-the-counter and prescription medicines especially insulin, blood thinners, and asthma medications as well as with certain herbal supplements; therefore, it would be important to inform your physician of your entire medication regimen. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any psychological changes (e. G, new onset depression) while taking varenicline. Common side effects of varenicline: nausea, which may dissipate over time headache insomnia there are other common or more serious side effects. Please read the medication guide that comes with the product carefully and be sure to contact your doctor if you have any questions. How could research benefit smokers who want to quit? researchers are testing a vaccine that could make quitting a lot less difficult. This type of treatment could potentially be used in a program, along with bupropion (zyban) and counseling, to significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms.

What is anxiety disorder? how can it be cured?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, lifestyle changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psychotherapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psychotherapy. Take care.

Dear, 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.

I breakup with my bf and I am feeling very depressed what is the solution for this problem.

I breakup with my bf and I am feeling very depressed what is the solution for this problem.
Depending on how long this relationship lasted the effect will be longer. You must immediately talk about your feelings to a close friend or to a counselor. Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on him must die out eventually. You must first exorcise him out of your mind. You can either do that by talking him out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting in a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging him out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If he has ditched you, you must learn to forgive him for your own sake and live a life free of him eventually in the mind and then in the heart. He is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to him when he dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to his memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings.

You have trans gender tendency and need to get counselled .Gender dysphoria is the distress caused by the feeling that your gender identity does not match the biological gender that you are. For example, if you were born with the genitals of a boy, but feel that you are female, or the other way around. This used to be called "gender identity disorder". However, this suggests that identifying yourself as the other gender is an illness. It is only an illness if it causes you unhappiness, or affects your health and well-being. There are many ways you can obtain help and support if you are struggling as a result of your gender identity. If you wish to change your gender, the medical profession will support you in doing so. There are gender identity clinics with a wide variety of professionals who specialise in helping people make changes so they are happy with their gender. "Gender identity" means the sex (gender) we most feel we are. For most people this is the gender they were assigned at birth as a result of the appearance of their genitals. However, for some people there is a mismatch between the gender they feel they are, and the gender they appear as to other people. Gender dysphoria is the term used by most health professionals for the distress people experience when the gender they were assigned when they were born doesn't match the gender they feel they are. Dysphoria means unhappiness. So "gender dysphoria" describes the distress and problems which may be caused by gender identity issues. Gender identity disorder is becoming an outdated term. It is gradually being changed because the term suggests a mental illness. It is not an illness to be transsexual, or to feel you should be another gender than the one you are born with. However, it can cause some problems and distress. You may wish to ask for medical help if you feel this way. You may need help coming to terms with the effect it has on your life. Or you may wish for help in changing your appearance to fit with the gender you feel is right for you. In order to access this care there has to be a medical term. Nowadays it is understood that being transsexual or transgender does not refer to illness - it refers to diversity. This is why the term "gender dysphoria" is now used instead of the diagnosis "gender identity disorder". Some more definitions Transsexual: a person who feels an overwhelming desire to make a physical change and live their life as a member of the opposite gender. Many transsexual people actively wish for and undergo an operation to change their gender. Transgender or trans: this can refer to a number of different gender experiences. It can include transsexual people, transvestites and cross-dressers. It is a word which can be used differently by different people, so may be confusing. Trans woman/trans man: a trans woman is a person who has been assigned as a male at birth, but who later identifies as a woman. A trans man is a person who has been assigned as a female at birth, but later identifies as a male. These are terms used BEFORE a person has any gender-changing surgery, or makes any legal changes. After either of these events, they would normally refer to themselves as a woman or a man respectively. Transvestite: a transvestite is a person who dresses in the clothing of the opposite sex. This usually refers to a man dressing as a woman. Transvestites do not necessarily wish for permanent changes to their gender.

It is not good to use medicine for small reasons. It leads to some other problems. It has a chance to effect to side effects. Better to change the friend circle. Or make a very good friend with another one. Spend most of the time with remaining friends they are not related to him. Develop a very good new friends. Talk some of them. Who may have a positive opinion on you. Express your all internal feelings and problems with family members and close friends. Do not be alone. Develop a very good busy schedule. Visit remaining friends homes or relatives homes etc. Visit temples, parks or very new places. If it is possible better to change the place. Spend most of the time in happy mood. Better to remove his memories in your books. Do not think his name and others. Give suggestions that I am always well and I have no problems. Feel always confident and comfortable manner. Be sociable and be happy. Ok all the best.

Drinking alcohol while taking antidepressants is generally not advised because alcohol can make depression worse. It can also increase the side effects of some antidepressants, such as drowsiness, dizziness and co-ordination problems. Therefore, it’s best to avoid drinking alcohol if you're taking antidepressants, particularly if you're going to drive or operate machinery.

I consume alcohol. The dosage is around 1-2 times in a week (2 - 2.5 pegs at a time). Is it safe or should I cut down the present levels of intake. These days, the desire to have more frequently is on the rise. Please. Advise me the safe levels of consumption.

If the desire to take more is increasing then you should stop it. Otherwise 1 to 2peg in a week is not harmful.

I am 38 years old. My Parents highly need meditation & yoga exercise to concentrate. But they are not paying attention to their growing ailments. They're becoming sarcastic towards me & my brother. & blame me for all. Only because I didn't marry.

Its seems to be frustration of your parents that has been projected. I do not know what exactly the reason for not getting married. Talk to them, spend time for them, ask them what is going on in their mind for not being getting medications. Tell them the importance of them in your life. I hope that the main reason would be you not spending time with them. Will be awaiting for your rply.
