I had epilepsy problem some twenty five year ago. I gradually reduced the dosage and I was alright. Bud suddenly had an attack yesterday. What should I do.

Hello mam. You must contact your doctor without a delay as your condition needs re-evaluation and maybe, your medicines need to be continued. If you want to reduce or stop your medication, it must be done under guidance of your doctor only, as unsupervised change of medication is always harmful. Please take care.

Is smoking once a day harmful? I was a chain smoker 3 years back but now due to stress I feel like again starting it. So is it safe if I smoke only once a day?

Smoking once a day may not be as harmful, but it will still affect the lung tissues, still add up plaque formation in arteries. Funnily, it does not relieves stress, nicotine creates stress between two fags and then supposedly relieves it! take care.

Dear, depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines. Psychotherapy, meditation and life style changes. Out of which you are already having good medicines. I will help you with the other three methods. Once you master the other three methods, slowly you can taper the medicines, on your psychiatrist's advise. In a span of one year you will be able to stop the medicine completely because, by then you sould have learned how to manage your depression. Please post a private question to me with every detail. Take care.

Anger Control Tip

"Think before you speak"

In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same.

Depression - Basic Overview

MBBS, MS-General Surgery , FMAS, FIAGES

Depression - Basic Overview

Depression is a serious mental illness in which feelings of sadness and loss of interest last for weeks and interfere with daily life.

There are numerous factors that can trigger the onset of depression, including:

  •  Actions and conditions (like threat, abuse)
  •  Illness (such as cancer or chronic pain),
  •  Social isolation or loneliness and
  • Stressful life events (such as divorce or money problems).
  • Depression can cause deep emotional pain both to the person experiencing it and, often, to that person's close family and friends.

There are several different types of medically recognized depression.

  • Major depression
  • Episodic Depression
  • Post Partum Depression
  • Pre and marital Depression
  • The most common type of depression is called major depression

It occurs when your symptoms interfere with your enjoyment of life or daily functions — including your work, sleep, and eating habits for atleast two weeks straight.

Episodic Depression

Some people experience only one episode of major depression in their life, while others may go through numerous episodes of the illness.

Darkcircles under eyes are too heavy, heavy body pains, no sleep Please suggest what to do.

Darkcircles under eyes are too heavy, heavy body pains, no sleep Please suggest what to do.
Hi, I think lack of quality sleep and excessively thinking about certain things could be your problem. Some lifestyle modifications like yoga and good diet can help you. Try avoiding computer or laptop usage for prolonged periods of time. Stop watching t. V or listening to music atleast 1 hr before going to sleep. Eat your dinner atleast 2 hrs before sleep. Drink a glass of hot milk as it naturally induces sleep. Inspite of all the above measures, you condition remains the same, then probably you need some professional help.

Hi, What is your age? Are you working or studying? From your description it feels that you procrastinate to get things done, then they pile up and you have a tendency to jump to worst conclusion in a single leap like " ?I?m a mess, I?ll never have enough time to study for this exam an I am going to fail". Is it the case with you? Organizing and prioritizing helps when everything looks like a mess. After you prioritize pick one thing @ a time..get it done and move to next. Little accomplishments shall boost your confidence gradually. To help you more we need to chalk down problem areas and specific ways to deal with them. Kindly come back with answers.

Hello Doctor, I am 23 years Old and I am a ca final student not able to give my exams due to this mental illness From past 16 months I am suffering from bad anxiety and depression but from past week my thoughts getting changed everyday earlier I was getting that everyone is talking about me or wants to kill me now I am getting that I want to kill others or I want to do some violative act or want to kill or hurt myself. Well yesterday I went to the psychiatrist and he has diagnosed me with OCD and prescribed me Paxidep CR 12.5 once in a day, Clonazepam 0.50 Mg 1 and half tablet a day and risperidone 2 mg Half medicine in the night I have start taking other medicines except risperidone as it is a anti psychotic Now please can you tell me what symptoms I am going through and should I take risperidone.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Let us look at your scenario systematically. First, what is the likely diagnosis? It is difficult to say with the limited information available, but if one were to conclude with this information, I would agree with the diagnosis that was assigned to you (OCD). Your doctor is not using risperidone as an antipsychotic here, but as an augmenting agent. The dose of risperidone is on the lower side and that further confirms his intentions. The use of risperidone when there is unsatisfactory improvement with an SSRI is well known and proven beyond doubt. But the question here is whether we can just have improvement with an appropriate dose of paxidep alone or not. The only way to get to know that is to try it without the risperidone with appropriate dose adjustments from time to time. A call regarding risperidone can be taken after a few weeks of treatment along these lines. Please understand that all of the above suggestions are for your information only and I have no intention to question or interfere with your doctor's line of treatment. Also, since I have not seen you, I am assuming that the diagnosis of OCD is accurate and you have previously not taken medicines for the same or previously did not have any psychiatric ailments. A number of psychiatric terms, diagnoses and medication classes are deceptively similar to words used in general english. For example the word obsession as used in english and as used in psychiatry are completely different. Similarly, a medicine that is called an antidepressant or an antipsychotic is not simply a medicine to be given in depression and psychosis only, but depending upon the dose and other medicines being used alongside, can have vastly different effects and can be used in many different conditions. For example, a medicine such as propranolol, depending upon the dose and formulation can be used in the treatment of migraine, BP, anxiety, heart disease, intra-abdominal bleeds, aggression and so on. So stay away from a simplistic interpretation of what a medicine is for and clarify with the doctor. Take care!
