Dear lybrate-user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivational therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Dear, I can understand your emotions. From the given information, it is not possible to diagnose your mother for mental illness. I request you to provide all the symptoms she shows so that I can analyze the problem and provide curative measures. In any case, worrying is not at all a solution. You may contact me in case you want further clarification. Take care.

You have discussed various symptoms, to come to any conclusion one requires detailed information. However, our mood can affect the biological function and vice-versa. To overcome the mood change and sadness you can take an appointment with a psychologist and go for detailed assessment which will give a fair idea about how severe your symptoms are. If needed the medicines will be suggested by the psychiatrist. Medicine & Psychotherapy gives better results. Take a step towards wellness.

My mother has Alzheimer's disease, and I've noticed she is getting more confused. How can I help her?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Alzheimer's dementia is a progressive disease. There are practically no medications for cure of alzheimer's or reversing the damages caused by alzheimer's dementia. However there are certain medications which can definitely slower the rate at which memory loss and behavior problems surface. Also to treat and keep behavior and sleep problems under control certain medicines are helpful. In all, you may consult a psychiatrist with all her details and get a personalised treatment plan for her. Take care.

I hv been using clofranil 10 mg half a tablet for last 4 years, to control anxiety, can I stop using it now.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Thane
I hv been using clofranil 10 mg half a tablet for last 4 years, to control anxiety, can I stop using it now.
Please do not stop the medicine all by yourself. Please talk to your doctor and learn whether it will be a good idea to stop it. If the doctor's opinion is that you should continue, try to learn the reasons for the advice. Psychotropic drugs are useful treatments for psychiatric symptoms but often are not curative. To continue to get benefits of the treatment one needs to continue consuming the medicines. If you need to stop the medicine for some specific reason e.g. drug side effects or allergic reactions or adverse interactions with another drug that some other doctor has prescribed or contraindication in some other medical condition etc then ask the doctor to help you taper the dose off. Frequently, stopping psychotropic drugs all at once can produce a "drug withdrawal reaction" and to prevent that, one must taper the dose 'gradually'. Please ask the doctor to supervise the gradual taper. Only the doctor can tell you what 'gradual' can be, from his clinical experience.

I want a suggestion that my father drinks alcohol every night before having dinner and then he keeps on analysing things and talks bad things about people. Then he blames us for nothing. Then there is fight between my father and mother. Sometimes it becomes very severe. He getsout of control. So kindly suggest me how can I make him leave alcohol because he will never get ready to the consult a doctor about his alcoholism.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Probably your father is dependent on alcohol. These are the routine talks and fights when he is drunk. Leaving alcohol is difficult. Withdrawal symptoms make him go back to alcohol. You and your mother need to understand this and help him out instead of telling him to leave alcohol and fight. Get help from your father's friends or brothers to motivate him to go to doctor. Be prepared for admission into hospital for few days also. Take him to doctor by telling few bodily complaints like stomach pain, sleep disturbances, lack of digestion, shakiness, etc. Let the doctor find out about alcohol and treat. If there is a alcoholic anonymous group in your city or nearby, you can approach them, they will come home and talk to father.

At 26 years of age, there could hardly be any organic reasons for erectile dysfunction. If you do not get good erections then the cause could be psychological. Consult me for treatment avoid smoking, it can affect your sexual capabilities.

Dear user, 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. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. 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.

Actually, there are a few aspects to this situation. Firstly, a kind of guilt often operates in conscious/ subconscious mind after this kind of accidents especially where there are significant difference in the damage suffered by the victims. This guilt often gives rise to anxiety which in turn manifests in various bodily symptoms. Next, if you can attain erection during masturbation then no damage presumed to your genital. Your problem to attain erection during intercourse could be addressed during treatment. But if you have problem in having erection even during masturbation then you need to see Urologist first. As such you need to consult Psychiatrist, preferably along with your spouse. You need treatment both in form of medicine and behavioural intervention.

You are going through extended grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Hello, I am Dr Vikass Khanna. I’m working as a counsellor and hypnotist in Gurgaon Delhi. Today I will be talking about depression.

What is depression?

We have all been depressed sometimes in our lives. We’ve all been through ups and downs.

What is clinical depression?

CD is a very vague and broad clubbing of thought patterns. But does depression have a substance, absence of a state you want to be in. Let’s go to the roots of drips. You never visited the roots. The value system of our society which tells us to be someone to be happy to be kind, to be successful is the root of depression. We are always in a state of being someone, be somewhere, we have to be kind, to be more religious, be somewhere. Somewhere where one is not. There lies the conflict of what you are and what you want to be. Life is paly of polar opposites. You have expectations. You will have frustrations. They are eternally linked. If you don’t know the definition of happiness there’s no unhappiness. So why does one want to be in a futuristic state always, all the time, to be someone. As per the culture happiness, expecting something or the other all the time.

Now how do you manage depression?

Either pop a pill, take anti-depressants, which are 3 basically serotonin reuptake inhibitors. They inhibit the serotonin uptake. The chemicals they act till your taking them. In the brain circuits, a lot of adverse effects associated.

What is the other kind of motivation? 

Diversion, meditation, which are again suppressions. This suppressing kind of thought, Will you get rid of depression by that? Can you stop struggling to be free of depression? It is your mind which tells that you’re not happy. you’re sad. You should be somewhere. You should be like this. The same mind tells you to be free of depression. It is a moment, a mental moment, a though moment. Both the things can bring about that change.

Can you be depression free by struggling?

To get rid of it. Or increasing the depression like falling into the trap of depression. Can u let go of this struggle? Can you revisit the roots of depression? Expectations that ideal state, you want to be in. ideal state.

For any help enquiry, you can either come through the platform of lybrate or you can contact me directly on my mobile no. I’m available in Gurgaon and Delhi on appointments.

Thank you

I am 22 and am about to join a job. want to live an independent lie and not think about marriage .My parents however keep bringing up this topic and this immediately sets my mood off and I start answering rudely. I had a very huge fight with my mother and everyone thinks it's my fault. Is it wrong to have my own opinion and wanting to live my life on my own? Can marriage not be only my decision? Am I really wrong?

Marriage is definitely a very personal choice and it should always happen for the right reason - that is, when you are mentally, emotionally and physically ready for it. There is nothing wrong in wanting to get married late, but getting rude or losing your cool, is not going to help. You need to convince your parents by explaining them your reasons. They are your parents, they love you and want the very best for you so communicate with them in a manner that they understand.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

You may be suffering from OCD. Consult a psychiatrist for controlling the obsessive thoughts. Practice. Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult psychologist for therapy.

I am suffering from what kind of symptom, I don't. When husband is also loyal to us. But the thing is that, ignoring the family he likes to enjoy with his female favorite student. Without my knowledge also he some times plan to meet her. Still if he found red handed, then he says so what and gives many explanation as result I become mum. He is a college teacher.

Dear user. I suggest you not to worry about this and not to suspect your husband unless you found some concrete evidence which suggest your husband has physical relationship with this student. You are into menopause period. Such paranoia is part of every woman who goes through menopause period. Ignore it and trust your husband. Take care.
