You need to visit a psychiatrist immediately. This sounds like a serious condition, and you may be able to stave off worse developments if you act fast. Apart from the medication you must also seek help from a counselor for a good length of time. In the counseling you will learn a lot of skills and techniques to cope with the everyday challenges of life. If it turns out to be a pathological condition there is much work to be done and your cooperation is in your best interest. Do not self-regulate your medication, and comply with all the advice and prescriptions of the concerned doctors. When the mood swings to a better state, you may deceive yourself by thinking that you can now manage without help. That is a typical danger with this condition. Do not succumb to that belief and trust the professional. You could, if you want, seek a second opinion just for your curiosity.

first take tablets after one hour take alcohol. it is not good to take two in one time. it is better to avoid alcohol it is not good for health. weekly once it is preferable. regularly means you may use additional medicine for this attitude. so maintain weekly once. dont take regularly. it is better to mix more water with alcohol. dont take less water. it is better to take with coconut water. take light beer not strong one.dont take non veg food. take light food. snacks are compulsory maintain like that. food is must after alcohol. better to take butter milk before bed. it reduces the severity of the alcohol.dont think too much about the problem. dont sit alone and dont think alone. it is better to take with friends. maintain your dose of administration. sleep more time take good food. relax all the time. better to go movie in alchohol time. be friendly with others. be sociable all the time and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

Your sleep patterns are not healthy for you. Addiction to social media is also a debilitating condition. But your desire to dominate other people is what is called the power struggle: in every situation of two or more people power struggles will go on and that it not harmful unless you take it too far. This world is a 'dog-eat-dog world' and there is a lot of competition and we must be prepared for the worst. So if you want to dominate others do it by equipping yourself well. Here are several things you can do to further that goal: study well, speak well, be physically and emotionally fit, dress well, become well-groomed, be presentable, have good habits, conduct yourself well; do a personality development course, attend good conversational skills course, join the Toastmasters Club, do a personal grooming course, practise elocution etc. You must eat well, sleep well, and do regular exercise. These may all appear unnatural to you but these are things that everybody wants to and wishes to do to get on in life. Absolutely not harm in it at all.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you? re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse? no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn? t easy. But it? s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hi, you did not expect tour father to label you like that which led to your withdrawn behavior, lack of motivation and feeling stigmatised. See, you have a long life to go a long journey to complete. After birth we are on our own. You have to do yourself good by managing your illness. I'm sure a nice doctor will understand you. Stick to one doctor. Take proper medication. Full course and you will be able to overcome. Also its necessary to take psychotherapy/ counseling for which you can consult me. If both are done soon you will see a change and will be better. The thing is you don't have to focus on diagnosis you have to focus on solutions. Have faith and you will overcome it. Will help you. All the best.

I can really understand what you must be going through. Many women feel this after delivery. Not necessary you have depression, but feeling pressurized and overwhelmed due to this whole situation is obvious. Have an honest discussion with your husband without sounding like you are complaining. Share with him what you are feeling. Ask for help from your family or in-laws. You need support and help so ask for it. Nothing wrong in it.

Doctor, I'm a 36 year old girl. I have a slight loss of memory when it come to work that I keep forgetting about certain works I did the day before or the payments I made and received. This is creating a little problem at work. And I do keep over thinking about my future as I want a career and I have been getting proposals for marriage, when i'm not at all ready for it. I wish to work and make some money. I keep avoiding all the family get together and meetings with relatives as they keep asking me about my exams (I'm a CA student. I wanted to be a designer in the first place, but was ok with mothers choice. Even I agreed to it. But I regret it very badly now. I asked several times to switch my career choice and all I kept getting as reply was "try. Try" I am literally tired now. I could not pass the levels in B A and now I stand with a UG degree and 3 years experience. Best part is articleship is not counted as experience when you apply for jobs. I still tried and my applications are getting rejected. I sleep a lot. I keep thinking a lot. And I'm worried about my future. Above these worries to have a proper career, my parents want me to get married. I do not want to marry without my own job, and live the rest of my life with someones money. I want my own income. Doctor, I do not know if these are nonsense or if i'm being immature, but I do face a lot of mental stress and my friends say that I have changed and become more silent, when I used to be a very lively person. I want support from my parents side. All I want is that. If I should be able to do something, then I need only them to be strong and have faith in me and god. I tried convincing them, but every next time they come up with another proposal that too of 31 and 32 years old,(they think age defines maturity, but I do not believe when they them self is an example. As I have not mentioned anything about my choices. Please guide me if i'm wrong with my views regarding life and career. Thank you Doctor.

First of all, take a fresh diary and write on its first page as to. What do you want? there seems to be an amalgamation of lot of people's desires in your case. Of course I stand by your view that financial independence should be a first priority. Give everything to to your passion and work for it, you will succeed. Do not let the fear of outcome overshadow it. You should know if plan a doesn't work, one should move to. Plan b, plan c. Till one gets what one wants. It is better to take your own decision and fail rather than take someone else's and sulk all life. You should be ready to fail. Fail. And you will never fail eventually. What must happen will happen so just go for it!

Well your question is direct and to the point. You must now visit a counselor and talk about your anger. Your depression is clearly anger related and this could be causing your headaches too. Are you aware of what you are angry about? if this anger is from your childhood, there is much work to be done. If not then you can easily identify the recent origins of this anger and express it in therapy and when it is out, the headaches will also disappear. Do not experiment with the medicines without the explicit directions of your doctor. Continue the medicines as directed but do the counseling in tandem for the best results.

Started smoking again? Now what !

Started smoking again? Now what !

Having a small setback doesn't mean you're a smoker again. Most people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good. Identify the triggers or trouble spots you ran into and learn from your mistakes. 


    1. You're not a failure if you slip up. It doesn't mean you can't quit for good.
    2. Don't let a slip become a mudslide. Throw out the rest of the pack. It's important to get back on the non-smoking track now.
    3. Look back at your quit log and feel good about the time you went without smoking.
    4. Find the trigger. Exactly what was it that made you smoke again? decide how you will cope with that issue the next time it comes up.
    5. Learn from your experience. What has been most helpful? what didn't work?
    6. Are you using a medicine to help you quit? call your doctor if you start smoking again. Some medicines cannot be used if you are smoking at the same time.

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

One of the unique forms of depression is the Seasonal affective disorder which is characterized by the onset of depression with the start of the winter months and a full remission during spring time. Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression that affects about 1 in 20 people around the world on average. One of the common therapies used to treat this disorder is light therapy.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy is the controlled exposure to specific amounts of bright light on a daily basis as a medicinal tool to correct depression and other mental disorders. It has been noticed that the lack of exposure to lights may trigger certain mental disorders within patients and controlled exposure to bright light over a stipulated period of time every day may be able to correct this effectively.

How it works?

Brightness within the daily world is usually measured with the unit of lux. For all types of artificial lights, the measure of luminosity is estimated via this unit. Human beings have an automatic trigger where low light levels for continued periods may cause depression. A clear sunny day outdoors will have a measurement of 10,000 lux and this is the recommended dosage for exposure for people suffering from depression.

It has been seen in studies that people with severe forms of Seasonal Affective disorder responded well to this therapy. They were treated 30 minutes daily with light exposure and over time the study showed that it significantly improved the moods of the people.

Some of the reasons why light therapy proves to be an effective treatment option for SAD include:

  • It resets the circadian rhythm - Controlled exposure to light will trigger the hormones that control the circadian rhythms or the daily rhythms of sleeping and walking cycles and thus will help reduce depression.
  • It triggers neurotransmitter function - Light exposure triggers certain neurotransmitter functions which work like an antidepressant and thus relieves stress or other internal functions that may cause depression.
  • Results in an increase in serotonin levels - This hormone is very important for mood elevation and is known to rise with increased light levels and decrease with low light levels. Controlled exposure can definitely help improve serotonin levels for lessening depression symptoms.

I'm worried about my wife's cranky behavior as whenever I would be asking her about her activities she gets mad at me. Wondering whether she's cheating on me or not. Cause she has the habit of hiding from me and doing things. Eg: talking to guys late at night when I am sleeping or chatting with guys and deleting the messages from the phone.

If this is what is going on, there is definitely concern about her intentions. But as you can understand we cannot go on mere speculation without specific evidence. If she is merely enjoying talking to her colleagues, even if they are males, there may be an element of innocence in all this too. How do you rate your relationship with her apart from all this? If there is a good rapport and physical intimacy, then she may be seeking some extra attention that may not be forthcoming from her relations with you. It is possible that you may be neglecting her too and this might drive her to other people seeking love and affection. You must look into this aspect and genuinely consider what I am saying to fulfill that lacuna to perhaps change all this drama. If on the other hand there is something of substance, you could find out very discretely from her contacts whether they know anything. You could also snoop on her and listen to conversations to see whether they verge on the infidelity angle, because of her suspicious behavior (normally I would not recommend this but since you are saying that she is behaving like she is cheating on you and talking in this suspicious manner, I am proposing this). You may also both go for marital counseling and get a professional involved to fairly and objectively enquire into your suspicions. Your final option would be to engage a detective agency and use their services to either confirm that she is being unfaithful or that it is all mere paranoia, jealously or suspicion. That way the truth will come out and that will give you options about which way you want to proceed thereafter.
