You must never stop medication without the doctor's advice. Also. Ideally, you should be on medication and counseling and if you are episode-free for three years, you can be weaned off of it but always with the approval of the doctor. Counseling is very important together​ with medication.

Ofcourse you can break the cycle. Consult a psychologist for psychotherapy. Practice JPMR Exercise daily twice morning evening for 15 minutes. This relaxation technique starts by tensing one muscle group for five to 10 seconds. Then the same muscle group is relaxed letting the muscle go limp for 15-20 seconds. When I use this progressive muscle relaxation script with clients I find that this relaxation technique creates a deep sense of physical relaxation. This free and almost free progressive relaxation music complements your relaxation practice. Suggested tips before starting this progressive muscle relaxation script Find a quiet place that is comfortable for you. Practice at a regular time during the day. Preferably not after you have eaten Find a comfortable position. If you are sitting, then keep your back straight and feet flat on the floor. If lying down (the preferred option as your body is supported by the floor) then you can put a pillow beneath your knees for extra support. Adopt a passive attitude to PMR. When tensing muscles (without straining), do so for roughly 5 seconds. When you relax your muscles do so for roughly 15-20 seconds before progressing to the next muscle group. Tense each muscle group once before progressing. Progressive muscle relaxation script Start out with a few relaxing breaths. Use the diaphragmatic breath, and as you exhale feel the tension begin to ebb away. Clench your fists. Move your awareness to your hands. Clench both of your fists for up to 5 seconds. Release for 15-20 seconds, imagining the tension ebbing out of your hands. Tighten your biceps. Move your attention to your arms. Draw your forearms toward your shoulders, creating a bicep. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release and imagine the tension flowing out of your biceps. Forehead and scalp. Move your attention to your forehead. As you inhale lift your eyebrows and wrinkle your forehead. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release, feel the relaxation of the muscles of the forehead. Facial muscles. Move your attention to your facial muscles. Furrow your eyebrows and purse your lips. Try to pull all of your facial muscles towards your nose. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. As you release feel the relaxation of the facial muscles. Jaw. Bring your attention to your jaw. Clench your jaw tightly, feeling the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Relax the muscles and allow the tension to disappear. You may feel your mouth begin to open a little. Neck and shoulders. Now bring your awareness this region. Shrug your shoulders towards your ears. Feel the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the muscles ebb away. Upper back/shoulders. Now bring your awareness between the shoulder blades. Push your shoulder blades back as if you were trying to get them to touch. Feel the tension in the surrounding muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in between the shoulder blades ebb away. Upper chest. Now bring your awareness to your upper chest. Tighten the chest muscles and hold. Feel the tension in the upper chest muscles. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the chest muscles flow away. Stomach. Now bring your awareness to your navel area. Try to draw your navel in to your backbone. Feel your stomach muscles tighten. Hold for up to 5 seconds and then release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the abdominal muscles dissipate. Buttocks. Now bring your awareness to your buttocks area. Squeeze your buttocks together, consciously tightening the muscles in this region. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in these muscles disappear. Thighs. Now bring your awareness to your thigh muscles. Try not to contract your stomach muscles as you consciously tighten your upper thigh muscles. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the thigh muscles dissipate. Calves. Now bring your focus to your calf muscles. Consciously tighten your calf muscles by pointing your toes. Hold, hold hold…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the calf muscles flow away. Feet. Now bring your focus of attention to your feet. Tighten your feet by curling your toes toward the ground. Hold, hold and hold some more…and now release for 15-20 seconds. Feel the tension in the feet flow away. Mentally scan your body for any residual tension. If you find a muscle group with residual tension then tense and relax this area again. Feel a wave of relaxation, from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. When you are ready bring your awareness back to your breath and slowly open your eyes. Consult for counseling.

Hi doctor, I am a 13 years old girl. I always get angry with everybody when someone shouts at me or scold me. I always get angry for silly reasons and I can't control my anger at that time. What will I do for it? how will I control my anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You don?t have to control your anger; you must learn to express it properly. However, there may be a problem with how angry you get and for small reasons too. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such an early age, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. When such signs come in early adolescence, it is advisable to take care of it promptly. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage.

Dear, aapki problem ne kaafi pareshan kiya hua hai aapko. Aapke liye apni height ko accept kar paana mushkil ho raha hai. Agar aam taur pe dekhe to 4 ft 10 in ki height kaafi hoti hai ladkiyo ke liye. Hindustan me ladkiyo ki samanya height 4 ft 3 in hoti hai. Is lihaaj se aapki height kaafi hai. Magar aksar aisa hota hai ki hum mansik taur pe alag aankalan lagate hain apni khoobiyo ya vyaktitv ka. Jaise aapme bahut see khoobiya hongi. Maan lo aap padhai me 80 ank laate hain aksar. Par aapko aisa lagega ki ye kaafi nahi hain kyuki aapko kam se kam 95 ank chahiye. Zyadatar log shayad 60 ank hi la pate ho. Aap behtar hote huye bhi apne ko humesha kam mehsoos karoge kyuki aapko doosre aisa ehsaas dilate hain ki 80 ank kaafi nahi hain. Yeh kaaran aapne khud bhi bataya. Aap apni behen se tulna karte ho khud ki. Is karanvash aapko apni height 4 ft 10 in hote huye bhi kam lagti hai. Aapko apni behen se kee gayi tulna pasand nahi aati kyuki aapko usme bhed-bhaav dikhayi padta hai. Isliye aapka man har samay apni lambaayi ke sambandh me sochta rehta hai aur aap khud se khush nahi hain. Aapne army join karne ka bataya. Ho sakta hai ki army me selection na hone ka koi aur kaaran bhi ho. Par aap kyuki apni lambai ko apni kaamyabi ka adhaar maante ho isliye aapko lagta hai ki yehi kaaran hai jis vajah se aapka selection nahi hua. Aapko humesha se aisa bataya gaya hai ya aapne humesha aisa dekha hai ki lamba vyakti achha aur behtar hota hai. Lambi ladki bahut see khoobiya rakhti hai, aisa aapne samjha hai. Is vajah se aapne lambai ko apne vyaktitv ka adhaar bana liya hai. Jabki yeh sahi nahi hai. Aisa maanna ya aisa samajhna galat hai. Kayi kaarno se aisa sochna galat hai. Pehla to ye ki lambai se vyakti ke charitra ka pata nahi chalta. Doosra, Lambai hi keval ek maatra adhaar nahi vyakti ke moolya ko pehchaanne ka. Teesra, Lambai chhota ya zyada hona kisi ke haath me nahi. Ye genetic nature pe nirbhar karta hai. Aapko samajhna hoga ki lambai badhane se aaj aap khush reh sakte ho par kuch time baad aap fir nirasha mehsoos karoge. Aise me behtar hota hai ki hum sweekar kar le apne vyaktitv, roop aur charitr ko. Anyatha bevajah hi hum apne man ko dukhi karenge. Aapki lambai ek had tak hi badh sakti hai aur uska vikas ab 20 varsh ki aayu me poora ho chuka hai. Isse zyada ye aur nahi badh sakti. So aise me behtar yehi hoga ki aap sweekar kar le aur apne man ko doosro ki tulna se door karen. Apne man me lambai ke vicharo ko na aane de aur agar man nahi maanta to aap kisi counselor se paramarsh le. Aapko mazboot banne ki zarurat hai aur doosri khoobiyo pe dhyan dene ki aavshyakta hai. Aapme aur bhi bahut see khoobiya hogi jo aapki behen me nahi hain. Unpar dhyan do aur dekho ki aap bhi behtar ho. Army na sahi, koi aur profession chun sakte ho aap. Ya aap dobara apply karo army ke liye. Lambai ko apni zindagi mat banao. Ye koi manzil nahi hai aapki.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, I have no words to express my feelings towards you. At this time it is quiet natural to be depressed and morose. All these can happens as a grief reaction. But I think yours one is something more because a kind of psychotic symptoms is appearing which indicates that your grief has turned into severe depression. Also you had attempted suicide. I think you should not be alone at this stage, be always with your close family members. Try to ventilate yourself by remembering your beloved son. Pray for his soul. Involve yourself in some social works so that you can percolate your love for your son in between the children at his age. Try to sublimate your grief into a productive one. If still you can't find solution you can always take professional help of a grief counsellor or a Psychiatrist. Hope you will get some light in the sea of your sorrow.

In last one decade we are seeing a huge increase in Substance abuse in this country specially among youngsters. The use of cannabis, alcohol and tobacco has become rampant in all college campuses causing rise in various substance abuse and psychological problems. Research shows the risk of addiction increases if person starts at young age. Younger the age of starting, higher the chance of addiction. As the social taboo decreases on use of Cannabis (mostly due to legalisation in Westren countries), Alcohol and Tobacco (both due to their depiction in media and rising corporate culture of work hard party hard) there is endemic spreading in our country of these drugs which harm both mental and physical health. In my next post i would talk of why addiction is a biological disease not just a bad habit

Anxiety Disorder - Role Of Homeopathy In Treating It!

Anxiety Disorder - Role Of Homeopathy In Treating It!

All of us undoubtedly experience the hasty pace of life. There are invariable pressures at work and home which load us up with fear and worries, but when this anxiety becomes a disruptive force in our life and begins to dominate our behavior, and starts interfering with work, school, family life it calls for treatment. Anxiety is an emotional turmoil that may incorporate many different feelings and symptoms.

Adults are not the only ones who get stressed out, children are also vulnerable to stress. Some children experience anxiety and may struggle to amend to new situations such as school and friendships, may feel unusually insecure or have intense fear of the dark, insects, animals or other creatures.

Causes of Anxiety Neurosis:

The reason why it occur is very difficult. It is illunderstood also. Socio-economic reason is also precipitating factor - like loss of job, continues target or goals in jobs which are increasing everyday pressure.

  1. Heredity.
  2. Imbalance of certain chemicals in the brain.
  3. Emotional trauma.
  4. Lifestyle choices.
  5. Alcohol, caffeine and certain drugs.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder (neurosis):

  1. Unnecessary, unrealistic and uncontrollable worry about everyday things.
  2. Shortness of breath.
  3. Increased heartbeat.
  4. Trembling and dizziness.
  5. Headaches.
  6. Fatigue.
  7. Muscle stiffness.
  8. Restlessness.
  9. Sleep disturbances.
  10. Mood changes.
  11. Diarrhea.
  12. Feeling of hopelessness and Pessimism.
  13. Sexual impotence.

Homoeopathic Treatment:

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat anxiety but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved homeopathy medicines are available for treatment of anxiety disorders that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.

If you do not want to opt for allopathic medicines or go into immediate counselling to relieve yourself of anxiety disorders, then the best option for you at hand would be to try and follow homoeopathy. Homeopathy is often seen as an alternate form of medicine and does not have any side effects as such. Thus, it is often preferred by many people.

Anxiety should not be left to accumulate in the body. Thus, it is necessary to treat it as soon as possible with whichever means that would suit your body. Homeopathy is just one form of treatment. It is advised if the results are not as you desire, then you should opt for a medical practitioner who might be able to help you further. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I am a 38 years old man and have a smoking within 12 hours please make a 6 cigerates, bedi also. Please I cannot dropout anytime. Please how I can drop smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You smoke one cigarette every two hours and some beedis too. I am glad you want to stop. I don? t know how long you have been smoking but it is time to quit. The best way is to find out about the harmful effects of smoking and tobacco. The knowledge itself helps keep the intention to stop active. But as you know that is not enough but it does have a telling effect. I remember that in the early nineties, we knew that smoking was reducing by 1% annually in the west while it was growing by 2% in india, all because of the awareness created by various agencies in the developed countries. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start 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, for a little while. You may 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 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. 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 was drinking alcohol from many more years. So we gave a crotonol 500mg tablet of 7 numbers. After that he is talking like mental upset. After that wat will happens. Please give me suggestion please.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, this medication is used along with counseling and support to treat alcoholism. Crotonol (disulfiram) works by blocking the processing of alcohol in the body. This causes you to have a bad reaction when you drink alcohol. Drowsiness, tiredness, headache, acne, and metallic/garlic-like taste in the mouth may occur as your body gets used to the medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your father is mentally upset because of the withdrawal symptoms and the effect of the medicine. Please consult the doctor who prescribed this medicine. Take care.

I am short temper, actually I gets angry so easily. Is there any medical treatment for this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu need to have mind control like counting to ten when anger comes and do meditation and yoga daily . No medicines for anger and if you take anti anxiety drug it may sedate or make you less react. Some of the "typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. 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. Learning To Deal With Frustration It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody.

Then the diagnosis may not be depression, since the results with antidepressants are excellent, rarely we see resistant depression. Get a 2nd opinion from another psychiatrist, and get evaluated in detail.

I am 30 years old and my wife is 26 years. We got married in 2012, February and its been 4.5 years around we are trying for a baby but unfortunately not successful. We went to gynecologist and they referred us for some tests and after the results we got there are some small issues with me and very small issues with my wife like hyperthyroid which were told to us that it is not so much tensions type of things and we can try till last. I am worrying about one issue like people says that time is very precious and after that nothing can be done. I am taking very tensions for small small things and trying to become cool and calm but it is again not done. Even we both are having some words disputes in which I always harsh on her and for which I think it should not be done as I found to be guilty. When we sometime have a mood to do for a baby we need something to help like laptop/movie to have some mood to reach out there to do. I hope you understand. Also we can not do for long last and complete withing 10 minutes. I am taking some medicines also of himalaya like Gokshura/seacod/ and one more virkshmala. Please suggest if anything can be done for any remedies.

Hi lybrate-user, first of all, de stress yourself, this is a part and phase of life not your whole life, do not let it define you. The stress you are taking will take toll on your body and it is because of this reason that you are not excited enough when its time to get intimate. Don't think about baby while having sex, think of it as something that gives you pleasure focus on your partner. Do not smoke, drink, have dark chocolates and fresh fruits, more garlic and dates. Do kegels exercise for sustained erection. You need some therapy for your stress too. Consult a psychologist. You can consult me for same. All the best.

You seem to have an emotionally labile mood and you seem to be susceptible to stressors in your daily life. That makes you vulnerable in relationships. Feeling sad, depressed, having a low self esteem, staying away from people in spite of being alone etc are signs of a depressive phase. This also quite common with thyroid abnormalities, vitamin deficiencies etc. You need to get evaluated by a psychiatrist for the definitive management that you need. It may include some medications and counselling.
