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.

I have taken alprax from last two nights and still I was not able to sleep, I wish to know that I hope I am not in depression but it is true that I am not able to face reality in life and I am loosing my will each day to fight against struggles which I am going through.
Thank you very much for your reply I'm really grateful to know the ans. I have few close friends they love me Nd support me as well even I think to join in a beautician course I'm really looking forward for this but r you really sure if I do chat with frndz go outside with them Nd join d course my prob will be solved? Coz my husband is not staying with us he is working in abroad Nd he comes home once in a year Nd I have to maintain all responsibilities alone which I can not bother every time. I do not have family support I told you my parents r not supportive Nd I have mood swing prob. I go outside with friends, chat with them it makes me happy for few days but after that depression will come again Nd I have to take those medicines lamitor od 50 Nd for insomnia I have to take rivotril. I know everybody has prob in there way but they may find out the way to come out I'm also trying d same. I was a very charming talkative spontaneous person everybody loved me wanted to be with me I had a positive way to live life but now a days I can not recognise myself all those positivity have gone. I do all my duties forcefully means I do not want to do but have to do like this. I love my child love my husband but the way life goes on I'm not happy may be I'm thinking too much abt it but still whatever I feel I just explain. Please suggest me some positive ways to live my life with full of energy suggest me some antidepressant medicines which makes me happy not necessary if you think Thanking you Sharmila Das Si.
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?
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
