Psychiatry - I am 34 years old male. I have been on sulpitac and stilnoct for around 4-5 years for delusions and paranoia. Recently doctor started modalert in morning because of concentration, restlessness and focus problems at work. Though modalert benefited a lot at work but it led to increase in paranoia symptoms. The sulpitac dosage was increased but still I am facing problems. I think it needs to be increased more. I think I was much better without modalert. I do not want to take it. Now I am finding it very difficult to get off modalert. What is the way to get off it. Is there some alternative. Are there some supplements, vitamins etc that may help with getting off modalert and that helps in concentration and restlessness.

If your life is disturbed by your delusions and paranoia, you need sulpitac - may be more. If you want concentration at work, you need modalert. Sticking a balance needs help from a psychiatrist. Please don't adjust yourselves. Inform doctor your problem during a particular time and he/she will adjust the combination of drugs. You can get rid of modalert by gradually shifting to another antidepressant. Supplements are only supplements - they need to be added to antidepressant tablets. They will also help.

Schizophrenia is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that you are depending entirely on medication when in reality you need to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizophrenic.

Dear user. I can understand. Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. You said sometimes you get stupid kind of thoughts. These stupid kind of thoughts are part of life and everyone gets such stupid kind of thoughts. You can't stop them completely. When stupid and unforeseen things happen in your life, stupid thoughts do come. You cannot control what happens where. Instead we learn how to overcome those stupid thoughts. Cognitive therapy should help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. One set back never means everyone around you are alike. There are different people around you and everyone has their own behavior pattern. You cannot expect people to adjust with you. Therefore you should learn to live your life ignoring others. At the same time, you can adjust with some people who are near you. I suggest online counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, loosing sleep for 2 nights does not mean you are depressed. Please avoid self medication, it is harmful. You are definable under lot of stress. Your mind is disturbed. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to face the realities of life. Acceptance is not easy. But please remember that life is full of challenges and the situations in life keep changing. So even if you are going through hard time in your life right now, this will change. You need to understand what exactly is bothering you and what are your options. Every challenge help you to grow personally. I guess you are feeling stuck at this point of time in your life. It is advisable to consult a counsellor who will help you in resolving your issues rationally. Take care.

I need to know what my mental health issue is. I have not been diagnosed but I have depression and social anxiety. I have symptoms of borderline personality disorder as well. I might be bipolar, but I can not tell. Sometimes I feel absolutely on top of the world and suddenly I feel like I can not do anything. Sometimes when I feel good I do risky things like try to go on top of buildings or act hyper. I have most control but also have thoughts of stealing cars, running away for no reason etc. Since im young, it could just be my hormones but its extremely confusing and tiring.

I lost the somebody last three years and I depressed and feel bad with my pleasure. What should I do?
It is very sad to lose someone who matters in your life and who is close to you. I can imagine how difficult it must be for you to live every moment. But please remember that life goes on. You are alive and you need to look after yourself if you want to survive. If you are doing something that pleases you then please go ahead and do it. You have a right to be happy in your life in spite of the loss of your loved one. Please understand that when you are enjoying your life now, you are not forgetting that person. Because of the circumstances the person had to go away. Try to cherish your pleasant memories with that person. Try to understand the love and the bond you shared, and be thankful for that. That person will never come back but will always be there in your memories. With this good feeling in your mind, move ahead in life. Take care.

Alcohol - How it Affects Your Body?

MBBS, MBA - Health Care Administration
General Physician, Gurgaon
Alcohol - How it Affects Your Body?

If you are a heavy drinker or consume alcohol regularly or frequently, you should know about the harmful effects of alcohol or how it affects your body negatively. When you drink, alcohol gets absorbed into your blood and gets distributed all over your body. Alcohol consumption may cause several physical and emotional changes, which can cause great harm to the body. There are many long-term effects of alcohol abuse, which put your health at great risk.

Here are some ways in which alcohol affects the different parts of your body:

  1. Excretory system: Excessive consumption of alcohol may cause the pancreas to produce toxic substances that interfere with its functioning. As a result, pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas is likely. This is a serious problem, capable of destroying the pancreas. Alcohol affects the liver severely. Excessive intake of alcohol may cause alcoholic hepatitis and lead to jaundice development. Chronic liver inflammation may cause severe scarring or cirrhosis. The formation of scar tissue may destroy your liver. When the liver and pancreas do not work properly, there is a risk of hypoglycemia. The damaged pancreas may cause unbalanced blood sugar levels, which is a serious concern.
  2. Central nervous system: Change in behaviour is one of the primary signs of alcohol being in your system. Alcohol travels through the body and quickly reaches your brain and other parts of the central nervous system or CNS. This may lead to slurred speech and it becomes harder for you to talk. Your overall body coordination is affected along with your balance and the ability to walk properly. Over drinking negatively affects your ability to think clearly, impulse control and your ability to form memories. Long term drinking shrinks the frontal lobes of the brain. Damage to the nervous system because of alcohol may cause pain, abnormal sensations in your limbs, and numbness.
  3. Digestive system: Alcohol also affects your digestive system in several ways. Alcohol can affect the entire digestive system starting from the mouth to the colon and a single incident of excessive drinking can wreck parts of the digestive tract.
  4. Organ damage: Alcohol abuse damages your salivary glands, which cause irritation in the tongue and month. This may result in gum disease, tooth disease or tooth decay. Ulcers in the oesophagus or food pipe, acid reflux and heartburn are other impacts. Excessive drinking may also lead to stomach ulcers and inflammation of the stomach lining.

Inflammation of the pancreas disrupts its ability to help the process of digestion and regulate effective metabolism. Damage to the digestive system from alcohol abuse can also cause diarrhoea, gas, abdominal fullness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

HI I am mobile addicted student and I want to get Rid of this  addiction. Please help.
Dear Lybrate user. Mobile addiction, Sex thoughts, Sex addiction, masturbation addiction, porn films addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. 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. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. 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.

1.Take balanced diet with proper combination of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Avoid diet high in saturated fats like red meat, whole milk, butter, cheese, cream, ice cream etc which hampers memory and concentration. Take complex carbohydrates like whole wheat bread, brown rice, oat meal, high fiber cereals, lentils, whole beans etc. Avoid processed foods like pasta, potato etc 2. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits and drink green tea since they contain anti oxidants which enhance memory 3.Go for regular physical exercise like brisk walking, jogging, cycling etc for 30-45 minutes daily 4.Take some mental exercise like doing cross word puzzle, problem solving exercise, playing chess etc 5.Develop some new hobby and skill like learning music, dancing, playing new game etc 6.Take adequate rest. 7-8 hours of sound sleep in the night is required to remain healthy 7. Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeinated drink, smoking and consumption of tobacco etc. 8. Develop healthy relationship with friends, relatives, family members for good emotional health 9. Avoid stress, anxiety, depression, agitation, severe physical and mental exertion 10. Focus on one task at a time rather than focusing on multiple task 11.

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. There are four basic types of bipolar disorder; all of them involve clear changes in mood, energy, and activity levels. These moods range from periods of extremely “up,” elated, and energized behavior (known as manic episodes) to very sad, “down,” or hopeless periods (known as depressive episodes). Less severe manic periods are known as hypomanic episodes.
