Dear Sanjay, BIpolar and Clinical depression or depressive disorder are neurochemical disorders. These are usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Some drugs do cause low libido. To regain your libido, you need to taper off the drugs. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise, counseling and therapy. Take care.

Instead of feeling the void, feel the presence of the departed through the memories associated with him/her. If you are feeling to keep to yourself, stay that ways, do not try to seek an opposite state. This will eventually fade away.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of impatiens + 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of vine. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Since 2 years I have been a patient of ocd (obsessive cumulative disorder). And taking fluoxin cr100. But when I stop this medicine it comes back. How to stop this permanently and live happily without over thinking. Wht should I do please suggest. Overthinking is ruining me in many stages of life.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear Mayank, Overthinking is not necessariliy a sign of OCD. However, assuming that your condition is indeed OCD, and it completely settles with fluvoxamine, the key thing to look for here is the duration of treatment. very often, the symptoms re-emerge because of premature stoppage of medicines. So first thing is to do a detailed interview and rectify these things. Psychotherapy (in the form of BT or CBT or CT) ca be done to make you self reliant and wean you off medications.But this will need considerable effort and time from your side as well as from the therapist. But that is really the way to go if you want to stop medicines. Take care!

I am a student & study in B. Sc but my mind is not concentrated in point. I want a civil service but my height is growth. What I do?

Dear lybrate user. You are a student and adolescent. Our mind will never concentrate on any task because of your ever changing priorities. Don't worry about that. If you want to do civil service, plant it as a goal in your mind and work for that. Height is hereditary. You cannot control it. You can have around 2 inches of growth if you exercise properly. That is maximum. Therefore, change your priority from your body structure towards education. Take care.

You need continuous sittings with a psychologist to go to the root cause of your" depression" first, get it diagnosed if you are suffering from depression or depression like symptoms. If depression is confirmed on psychological testing done by a psychologist you will require medicines from a psychiatrist, if only depression like symptoms are found on psychological testing, then you will require psychotherapy from a psychologist. Psychologist is an expert in psychological testing and psychotherapy while psychiatrist is an expert for mental illness treatment with medicines only. They have no training in psychotherapy.

1. Try to avoid very spicy food because it may the trigger for craving 2. Every time counsel yourself. That" today" or for" one hour" you have to resit yourself. Again another day follow this process. 3. First one week will be the hell week. But slowly you can practice 4. Praise yourself after every hour for resistence. 5. Meet to your psychologist for private consultantation and therapy. Take care.

antipsychotic drugs are better avoided in pregnancy.. but due to lack of large studies their side effects on foetus have not all been documented clearly wth statistical precision.However, if your psychiatrist feels that continuation of treatment is more important, please defer planning a family for the time being.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Addiction to nicotine gum is a common phenomena. Nothing to worry about that. Understand that nicotine gum is not that addictive or harmful as cigarette. Therefore, slowly reduce the quantity of nicotine gums and don't worry. Take care.
