May I know duration of medication for anxiety disorder?

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. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

First and foremost stop abusing these drugs, consult a psychiatrist/de-addiction centre for therapy as on stopping you may experience serious withdrawal discomfort. Get serum bilirubin, sgpt, sgot for liver testing, get serum urea and creatinine for kidney testing, get x ray chest done for lungs.

Hello. Online gaming addiction is becoming a new public health problem & I perfectly understand your concerns. You may not believe me at this point, but it is a mental illness known as internet addiction & if you search , you will get lots of articles about internet addiction. This is treated by combination of medicines & counselling. For your part, you should block your brothers access to any form of money (physical or net banking, atm etc.) then persuade him to visit a psychiatrist or revert back to me to start medications & counselling. Good luck.

I am 31 year old male suffering from serious anxiety disorder with digestion problem from past 9 years. I have blurred vision and giddiness. Very scared of closed spaces. Taking etlaam ds from past 4 years, but no use at all. Just wanted to check whether paxil 12.5mg will work, or do I need to take anything else. Kindly suggest.

Thanks for your query. Behaviour therapy can be very useful in your case than drugs. Fear of closed spaces is usually secondary to some subconcious cause which you may have in your mind. It is important that you undergo counselling with a psychotherapist to uncover what was the triggering factor to develop fear of closed spaces. Once that fear is resolved you will cope better. If you have any further query please ask.

This is natural for some people at this age. He needs to train himself or can wear little dark glasses/gogles to avoid direct eye contact. He will get over it with age. This may not be a disease.

Lybrate-user, its a myth that masturbation will drain you or is unhealthy. You don't have to feel guilty about it at all. Till the time its rewarding and not a hindrance you can carry on with it. Its natural. But if you feel its in excess or want to stop it for other reasons, consult with a psychologist for psychotherapy- to learn to deal ways to curb it. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user. your stress is the body's response to the demands of life & it also involves your emotions and mind which is eventually affecting your health try to talk about what issues have led to stress. Try relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation or involve some activity like yoga or dance whatever you like. Try to change your negative thought patterns if you have any, focus more on positive and keep doing reality testing to check if your nt making exaggerations or assumptions abt issues. Talk about what is stressing you more often to your dear one.

I am 14 years old and can't concentrate on studies please help.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Concentration on work is important in all sphere of life. Effective study is only possible if you study with full attention throwing off mind all the irrelevant thoughts which interrupt in the process of learning. Concentration means to throw off mind all unnecessary thoughts and converge all the mental capabilities on a point. Normally the rays of sun do not burn a paper, because these rays are dispersed but if the rays of sun are converged on paper with the help of lens, it burns the paper at once. Similarly converging your mental capabilities enables productive study ? the power of concentration. These are the tips to improve power of concentration. Try to get full sleep. Take at least six hour rest for refreshment and relaxation of your mind. A fresh mind can concentrate more easily. Take regular exercise. Brain takes its nutrients from blood for functioning properly. Physical exercise speeds up blood circulation to brain and brain gets well nourished as well as brain gets rid of waste products. Physical exercise is necessary for enhancing power of concentration. Study in a place with no or less distractions. Your study place should be free from such things which may absorb your attention, i.e television, music, changing color bulbs, maps etc. Similarly study in quiet place free from sound distractions. Avoid multi-tasking. While you study avoid playing with other things. Like you study as well as texting to friends on cell phone or making hair styles or one eye on television and one eye on book. Similarly study one subject in one time. Have free mind. Throw off your mind all the irrelevant thoughts while you study. If you are obsessed by a certain idea, try to find a solution to your problem first. Stress makes it difficult to concentrate. Fixation of priorities. Fixation of priorities, what should be done first and what should be done next, is very important for having full concentration in your work. If you don?t fix your priorities and work haphazardly, it is more likely you start thinking while doing one task ?shouldn?t I do the other task first as that is more important?. This thought will not let you work with concentration. Make time-table for your subject and follow it. Take short breaks in long study. If you study for a long time, you get bore and can?t maintain concentration on work. You should refresh your mind by taking short breaks to maintain your concentration on study. Have interest in your study. Lack of motivation and interest leads to boredom and dividend attention so develop your interest in your studies. Have good breakfast. Your breakfast should contain items with high protein content, carbohydrates and low sugar content. When you get up from sleep, have good diet though normally you should take light diet. Don?t take too much tea or coffee. Tea or coffee has caffeine that gives you more strength for sometime but soon leaves you sluggish. Concentration Exercises. There some exercises which improve your power of concentration i.e. yoga, self-hypnosis, looking at a round spot on wall with full attention etc. There are books on these things you can study.

Hello docs, I am in 12 th now, I am going from some off days. I feel very weak, my mind is away from eating anything, so, I can not concentrate on my studies and other activities.in that case, I was thinking to take revital tabs, and please tell me what diet and foods I should prefer, please send me daily food schedule, my heart is in bit dead condition. please guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I recommend some items of diet which you can make into a daily schedule as well as some other recommendations one of which is exercise. This last should improve your appetite and general well-being. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Is there any possibility to change a adamant chronic drunkard to quit him from drinking and smoking? He doesn't wants to work also in his life depending on his mother for drinking and food. Can he change by quiting drinking and go to a work?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course, he can but it is ideal if the person wants to quit himself. If he is an unwilling alcoholic, then it is possible to get the rehabilitation center to come and pick him up when he is drunk but then it will require the signed permission of his mother. He should stay in the center for at least 6 months and continue outpatient treatment and as well as attend aa meetings along with his family after the discharge. If he has a relapse, don't get discouraged but do the same thing again and again until you succeed with him. If you don't he will only be stopped by death i. E. 20% of alcoholics are on skid row: death is the only thing that can stop them. Keep trying until you succeed.

You may continue taking the prescribed medicines, but I think time you realised that medicine is giving you only interim relief, the moment you stop taking medicine, you begin to feel uncomfortable. Our physical reactions are not only controlled physiologically but are impacted by our thought process. I recommend that you meet a psychologist and work on your feelings and thoughts- unless you challenge the irrationality of your fears and your thoughts, you will continue having these difficulties. Eventually you will land up taking higher doses of the medicines to calm yourself. Yoga and sudharshan kriya are good ways of relaxation but you will require cognitive behaviour therapy (cbt), or some other form of psychotherapy as a permanent solution to your fears.

Be supportive keep reassuring him that you all are there with him no matter what, normalize the situation by telling him that its ok to fail once twice thrice even the most successful people have failed in exams or were dropouts, tell him inspirational things, take him out for outing to his favorite place, make him join some classes music etc whatever he likes and keep a very positive enviroment at home. Ask him what he wants to do and be encouraging. If it persists take him to a psychologist.
