Dear, quitting corex addiction is not child play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you.

Low potency homeopathic medicines may cause allergic reaction sometimes. Parkinson's disease is a neurological illness, which is gradually worsening condition. Researches have proven that with allopathy we can control its symptoms. Homeopathy does not have such a solid evidence. He may stop homeopathic medicines. He should take antiallergic treatment from local hospital. Later on, my suggestion is to continue allopathic medicines.

Repeated washing of clothes and hands could be due to ocd. She could be going through some guilt too. Of course, divorce is a painful situationand may make a person feel helpless. She does require emotional support from people around her. Do consult a psychiatrist about her washing engagement. With medication and counselling, she will get alot of relief and help.

Hello, I am having this psychological/neurological problem since 2011 after I met with a serious accident which caused internal-bleeding and blood clotted in my brain but it got fine with medication and no surgery was required. Then my doctor prescribed me 'Epsolin tablets for around a year. The composition of tablet is Phenytoin Sodium (100 mg). To be frank, It took me 8-9 months to fully recover physically and mentally. Then during that time-period I faced this problem which is explained below: It happens for one full day. On that day, When I wake up in the morning I am totally depressed and my head feels heavy. Thoughts of death come to mind so often. Then a memory blinks in my mind which is always related to some adventurous nightmare I saw previously. When this memory blinks, my heartbeat fastens and feel dizzy for 9-10 seconds and then recover. This keeps happening until I go to sleep at night and wake up next morning. It totally takes me two days to fully recover from this state of mind. Facts: 1. Intensity of the effect which occurs after blink is reduced since starting. 2. Frequency of the problem is also less now. As I mentioned in the description it happens once a month now. 3. Nightmares which blinks in my mind are always those which I saw on the same day previously. It is full of adrenaline rush for example someone chasing me, hanging from an aeroplane etc. 4. I have never explained this to anyone. I tried once but none could understand it. I couldn't even find out that whom should I consult. 5. I have tried sleeping during day to see if it goes away after that nap but it was not working. It still remains until night sleep. Please help me. Tell me something. I am so confused. Thank you in advance.

Trika 0.5 mg is alprazolam, which can be taken for short duration only, maximum 2 weeks. If anxiety requires treatment for long, kindly consult a psychiatrist, who will give better and more appropriate medications. Trika when taken on a longer run cam cause early dementia, shrinking of brain, memory loss, personality changes, withdrawal seizures, irriability and depression. So kindly avoid it, mostly people are made addicted to trika by cardiologist and physician who see the cardiac parameters and sleep and are unaware of the side effects it produces to the mind/ brain. All the best.

How to overcome from suicidal depression? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
You are suicidal then you are in an anger-related depression and need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. Would you know what may be causing so much anger and that you feel you cannot express it for various reasons and have chosen instead to turn it inwards and become your worst enemy? If it is of recent origin, you could easily pin-point it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years, or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

This seems like an anxiety disorder; possibly what is known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Confirmation of the diagnosis will need a proper and detailed evaluation. There are no quickfixes. A number of medicines and psychotherapeutic techniques are useful. Deep breathing and relaxation techniques can be helpful. talk to friends, give more time for hobbies and pleasurable activities. Eat green leafy vegetables and drink lot of water. Have 7-8 hours of sleep. Definitive management is possible only by medicines/ psychotherapy. Take care!

pain is complex phenomenon, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear, you must understand the difference between addiction and abuse. Quitting is not easy. There are every possibility of relapsing. The best method is to quit the habit now and sustain with will power. You can definitely quit addiction in one go. Just stop it and swear not to do it again. Engage yourself in exercise, games and other engaging activities during the whole day or whenever you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Loosing someone or something very dear to you may cause grief and as per some studies grief may last even for longer times like 2 years. These studies have found that the void created by the loss may sometimes be found for as long as 2 years and intermittently you may fell lonely whenever you have the memories of that person. But if those periods are causing you severe impairments as to not allowing you to work with full efficiency or causing decreased social interactions as in your case, you may require help from a psychiatrist. Kindly get help and get your full assessment done so as to decide the further line of management. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, smart phone addiction, facebook / whatsup addiction etc are behavior addictions. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

For some people chocolate helps to reduce stress but it cannot be consumed regularly in large quantity as it has more calories and may lead to obesity. You can try breathing techniques and meditation or meet a counselor who can help you with techniques to overcome the emotional problem. Hope the above information helps you lead a good life.

I am addict to alcohol what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Depending on how much you drink and how long you have been drinking, you may need to go for detoxification. This may be done either in a hospital or in a rehabilitation center itself. It is a way of clearing all the toxins related to the alcohol and this will make it easy for you to remove the physical craving. It will also help to deal with the withdrawal syndrome when abstaining from alcohol consumption. You will need the help of a therapist and a support group called the aa, alcoholics anonymous. They follow a very effective and time-tested 12 step program for the recovery. You will need to avoid all associations to drinking: friends, places, habits, companions, and times, for a short period until you get over the addictive drive. You may take liquid substitutes when the drinking urge is strongest as an oral stimulant. Examples of these would be: soups, buttermilk, juices, pepper water, tender coconut water etc. Start a completely new set of habits, behaviors, social circles, entertainment sources, and learn to be happy without the drink. There is a concept called script work, which is where the success of your recovery can have a lasting and effective impact. You must make some plans around salary time, and how to save money, and clear debts that you might have accumulated when you were drinking. Ideally, you should admit yourself to the rehabilitation center where all these things and more are done and practiced.

Coping with failure

1. Expect mistakes and knocks as they?re a normal part of life. The chances are you?re not any worse than other people!

2. Remind yourself that, on the whole, you are good enough. You may not be perfect ? but at least you?re trying. It take courage to step out, and to get up when you fall down. Just being willing to do that is a true mark of success.

3. Don?t over-react. It is better to stay calm, to maintain your composure and choose how you?ll respond. A knee jerk reaction often leads to real regret.

4. Try not to think or worry about how others see you. Don?t let other people determine your self-worth.

5. Put a positive slant on a bad experience. What can you learn from this that moves you closer to success? what can you laugh about with friends; what can you see as humorous?

6. Fix your focus on your goals, then look ahead and keep on going. Don?t let a setbacks deflect you from your purpose and your dreams.
