Hi lybrate-user, There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

I get head pressure on the left side of my head. When stressed due to work it is severe otherwise mild. This is since last 2 years. It started with a crawling sensation in the left side of face, temple and head. Now crawling is not felt but heaviness and pressure is constant. It goes only when I am deeply relaxed. My doctor gave me Ciplar LA 20 to have one pill daily in February so I am having it regularly but it hardly helps. Please help me.

Your symptoms are suggestive of tension type of headache. This usually occurs due to unresolved stress and increased muscle tension in head. Relaxation exercises like deep breathing, yoga and meditation can surely help. Medications may also be required at times. However if your current medications are not helping you much you could consult a psychiatrist or your treating doctor. You can also consult me for any further queries or assistance with treatment thereof.

It's too bad live with depression. Life is a gift. A beautiful phrase: life has either problem or not. If no problem, then why worry? if you have problem, two possibility. Either you can handle or not. If you can handle, why worry? if you can not do anything for problem, then again why worry?) your age is less so you are disturbed more. But believe me till 25 you are been passing through 3 4 more girlfriends.) this is the age factor. Do not be serious, just forget her at we the end we will always alone:) what is the concept of life? focus on your life, carrier. Be the best buddy, make other happy my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty (nagative attitude) or half full (positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga * you can take brahmi sankhpuspi etc ayurveda medicine * I recommended strongly, go near by ayurveda centre & take shirodhara & nashya treatment

I want to quit smoking so I wanted to know the best medicine out there that will help me to quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to consult your doctor for a prescription and you can get the medicine which will help to ease the withdrawal and also the craving. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Is consuming beer good for health, if at all its good then alcoholic beer or non alcoholic we have consume?

Is consuming beer good for health, if at all its good then alcoholic beer or non alcoholic we have consume?
There is no black or white, good or bad in the food/drinks we consume. We are so obsessed by trying to incorporate good in our lifestyle. Beer is a good diuretic, so it may help in flushing out in urine infections and kidney stones but obviously it is an insult to liver and reduces the ph of our system making it more acidic. Though much less than the hard liquor. Drink beer for'high" and not for health:) do.

Hi Lybrate user Make a daily schedule according to your regular work, and try to follow it. Be sure you should sleep 7-8 hours at night. Eat healthy foods. Set a goal for yourself that relate to the high priorities in your life and make sure your goal is motivating.(everyone has dreams, whether they are big or small they have vast importance in our lives. And achieving these goals is related to our happiness. It is a way to increase our self esteem.) write down why it is valuable and important to you, and make sure that it is possible to achieve the goal you set. Stay positive, you will never know your true potential unless you try. Mindfulness of breathing is very useful for concentration and memory. Thanks.

Hello I am 23 Year old male. I used to to chew gutkha but now I want to quit it. I used to chew 20 to 30 packets a day but from last 2 days I only used 2 to 3 packets in a whole day. I do not want to chew that too but one of my friend told me that leaving completely will do side effect is this right? And the other question is that I have some white cuts or only marks on both side in my mouth. But do not have any type of pain or any difficulty in talking or eating. Do I need to worry about that or is it normal? Thank you waiting for your response.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Gutka is a substance of abuse. It is a dry preparation, that consist of betel leaf, areca nut, tobacco, catechu (extract of the acacia catechu tree) & slaked lime, with sweet or savory flavorings. Due to its stimulant activity, gutka is used as a recreational drug. As it is a harmful product & do not have any beneficial effect on the body, you better quit it as early as possible. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including gutka. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Consult a psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest. With treatment you can quit the gutka immediately & you will not require the gradual reduction of the quantity of gutka, as advised by your friend. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the gutka. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist gutka use, replace gutka-using activities with constructive and rewarding non gutka-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Detoxification is usually completed within 7-10 days & can be done both on out patient basis & as in patient. Rehabilitation program usually ranges between 30-90 days. Along with, mentally prepare yourself to stay away from gutka. Following measures will help you to prepare yourself mentally against the substance: oEducate yourself adequately regarding gutka & its ill effects. Acquire the required information by reading books, going through internet or talking to a professional trained in de addiction. OKeep reminding yourself of the benefits you will achieve after quitting gutka: After quitting you will have reduced risk of the many diseases caused by gutka including oral cancer and a variety of other medical conditions like heart attack, respiratory, cardiac depression, hypertension, reproductive health dysfunction etc. Your teeth will be saved from the unpleasant stains. Your mouth will be saved from the bad odor caused by gutka. Any sores or ulcers in your mouth will heal well. You can focus more on your relationships. Taking gutka might have affected your relations if your close ones were against it, or because you were so preoccupied with the substance, your relations suffered. You can participate actively in social gatherings as you will not have to stay away to hide your habit nor have to come out frequently to chew gutka. You will save the money you were wasting on gutka & use them for better purposes. OImagine & create a picture of a beautiful future in your mind of a life without gutka. Imagine how much you will benefit in your new life. In between your beautiful imaginary picture also imagine that you started to take gutka again. Then imagine how one by one the beautiful picture will shatter. Once you become aware of the consequences of relapse, you will also develop fear of relapsing. You will then stay more cautious not to start it again. OCount the first day of your quitting as day of a new start & from that day, live one day at a time. It is helpful if you can relate this day to some important events in your life like your birthday or birthday of someone close, anniversary, day of some achievements etc. On the morning of the second day, tell yourself that you are starting the second day of your substance free life & by night time thank yourself that you stayed substance free whole day & encourage yourself to stay gutka free in coming days too. Celebrate your victory of staying sober on completing 1 week, 2 weeks, then 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and on completing one year celebrate the first birthday of your sobriety. This will encourage you to stay sober further. OAvoid triggering factors that may tempt you to take gutka. For example if the triggering factor was internal say some stress for which you got inclined to abusing substance, then work on the stress to remove it or take help of a counselor to overcome the stress. If the triggering was external, like some friends persuaded initially & you could not say no, in some specific event or situation you started taking gutka etc, then stay away from those situation. OImmediately after quitting, craving will be intense. But gradually with time it will reduce. So the initial days you have to be very careful. Keep yourself busy & diverted. OThrow away all gutka you have with you. Having them within reach may increase your temptation. You can use alternatives like lozenges or chewing gum. OStart new healthy habits & opt for a healthy lifestyle. OEat healthy diet. OJoin a support group comprising of people who came out of addiction & had undergone the same situation as you. You will get a platform to discuss your queries & together can motivate each other to stay sober & also help others to overcome addiction. Start your effort to quit gutka at the earliest. All the best. Regarding the white marks on your mouth, get yourself examined by a doctor. He will advice you the necessary investigations & give treatment if required.

Meet a life coach and mentor, this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me as well.

My relation who is 24 years is suffering from schizophrenia and he is refusing to use medicines prescribed by Doctors. What should be done Is there any alternative? Is Electric Convulsion Treatment (ECT} is an answer to this. If so is it advisable and risks involved.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pondicherry
For a condition like schizophrenia, it would be ideal if the patient is able to take medication regularly. However, it is a challenge as well. In such cases, the next option available is usually that of injections that can be administered on a fortnightly or monthly basis. ECT is usually considered when the patient is quite agitated or suicidal, in which case it is found to be very effective. It is a safe option and the risks involved are only those that are associated with anaesthesia for individuals having other medical illness (hypertension, cardiac problem etc). In the absence of such risks, one would experience mild headache or body pains after the ECT.

Hello, myself junad here, I will smoke 10 cigrets daily but ny family doesn't no about this. I am facing max coughing in aproxx 4 weeks in every month. Wht should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, it will be much better if you can quit smoking. You may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Anxiety is not directly related to weight loss. Anxiety impairs performance and your capabilities to deal with stress both physical and emotional. Hence anxiety particularly uncontrolled and long standing anxiety can prove detrimental for overall health of a person. However medical causes of anxiety and weight loss in your case need to be ascertained by careful examination, evaluation and investigations. Consult a psychiatrist for more details. You may consults me online for any clarifications.

Some told me that it will be decrease when my age is increasing, but I notice that stammering is also increasing with my age. I did speech therapy also, but can't get any positive response. Some doctors said it is mentally problem. Please tell me Is there any solution for my speech problem?

Normal stammering happens to all. But when it's out of control we call it stuttering. In this case coping mechanisms lag in us. Speech therapy definitely helps. Yeah its psychogenic, you need to understand it better. Speech therapy must help.

Hello doctor, my husband is 44 years old. He is an alcoholic. I wanted to stop his this bad habit. But he does not believe that he is alcoholic nor interested visiting anti alcoholic center. Now a days, for no reason he is showing his anger on everyone i.e me, kids, road side passers by. Using abusing languages, yelling / shouting for no reasons. Please help me out with some medicine so that, he unknowingly stops his drinking habit.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.
