Hi lybrate-user, your anxiety is not under your control. We need to assess and diagnose at first. Rather tahun experimenting by substances like bhang which itself will increase anxiety, kindly take an appointment for online consultation. Thank you.

Whenever I go to bed for sleep several thoughts start coming into mind and I am not able to sleep after going to bed. This reduced my sleep time and hence I feel drowsy. This also waste lot of time. What should I do to get good sleep?

Prefer to have light dinner. Walk for about 15 to 30 minutes after dinner. Avoid computer/smartphone at this time. Listen to melodious music before sleep. Daily yoga and meditation helps.

Can be fully cured anybody with scihezofrenia and bipolar disorder, taking medicines (arpizol 30 and bupron xl-150) during last 3 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, you cannot be fully cured of these two conditions but you can become very functional and lead a fairly normal life. However, it is important to combine therapy with counseling for a long time; and effective measures for activities, skills set development, learning new coping mechanisms and being in circulation will go a long way to rehabilitate you soon. Even if it takes time be patient and persevere until you really improve. Get a lot of support from your near and dear ones and just remember to do commit yourself to the following rules of everyday living: be responsible in what you say and do; be respectful in what you say and do; and be functional in what you do, always. Do not self-medicate. Follow the doctor's prescription and keep the person well informed about all and every change you experience.

On 18th November 2015 (my 50th birthday) I visited a psychiatrist for the first time for my suspected depression. After trying various drugs I am now taking VILAZODONE 20 mg. What is the history behind this drug, what are it's benefits over older antidepressants such as Prozac etc. And what indicators does the psychiatrist look for to discontinue this medication?

Vilazodone is a new drug recently introduced in india. It has additional mechanisms of action over prozac or fluoxetine. Antidepressant response can be unpredictable such that a person not responding to prozac may respond to vilazodone although vice versa is also possible. Prozac can cause temporary difficulty in erection and increase ejaculation time. Sexual side effects are reportedly less likely with vilazodone although it may be more sedating than prozac. Hope that helps!

There is some major issue, either some medical issue or some psychosocial issue. You and your husband require a detail discussion regarding the problem to solve it properly.

I am feeling very depressed. All environment whether college or Home or anything else I just feel bad. So there is not a place where I am not under the scrutiny of people. I feel like Someone is Always Watching me. I am constantly anxious. Not a single place is there where I am not tensed. Whether it's eating or listening or driving or whatever. Be it motivational videos, Funny videos, waking up from sleep, music I feel OK for some time but I myself know that this is going to be over. What should I do doctor to have this effect over and be normalized. My parents, few Relatives, Some batch mates and unknown people all aggravate this problem. I am having some sort of ocd and all above mentioned people enjoy it .But I can tackle it. I will undoubtedly 100% follow your instructions.

Dear lybrate-user, as per details mentioned suggest you to meet a psychiatrist to rule out any medical issue. If yes, then proper medicines can help in a great way in reducing your symptoms. In case medical problem is ruled out, suggest to meet a psychologist preferably a clinical. Hypnotherapist who can help in your coping with the situations and gaining a positive view of your life. You can send me a private message for same after being evaluated by a psychiatrist.

How can I increase my interest in studies. I can't control my emotions n easily lose concentration thinking of other things?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. To increase interest in your education, you need to have a concrete attainable goal. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. I suggest online counseling and" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

There is a inferiority complex! That when I know that somebody has more knowledge than me or is much smarter than me so while talking to that person I stammer a lot. And people make fun of me. And 1 or 2 ppl with whom I am really close and open, then I don't stammer and speak properly. Please help.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, I suppose your low confidence or inferiority complex due to your fear of not being able to make an impression by talking in a normal way. However, it may look reverse. You should know what was the oath for this development. If it was there since your childhood days it's mostly to do with your practice and other non progressive conditions. Stammering is very stressful and the only method to get it corrected is to practice strategies to speaking fluently. Your speech pathologist will be able to help you in this regard.

Dear lybrate user, the medicines will certainly give some relief to your wife. But it will be symptomatic. The moment the effect of the medicine wears out, she might get the same feelings again. If she is feeling very sad and axious, please take her to a counsellor. She will be able to relieve her stress by talking to the counsellor and the counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes. Once she expresses her feelings, her anxiety will reduce. If any further assessments are required, the counsellor will guide you. Take care.

Your daughter could be under going depression. Please consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible to get it diagnosed and treated. Letting this continue for longer time can worsen the situation. Meanwhile you can make her talk about whats bothering her. Be very gentle and empathic. Do not judge or conclude over what she shares. She needs alot of emotional support from people around her. Sometimes teenagers do show moodswings which usually subsides after sometime but if its prolonged then it definitely requires professional help.

ASPEN-A VESATILE BACH REMEDY TO FACE UNKNOWN FEAR
Aspen is useful in management of vague and unknown fear. The aforesaid symptom is otherwise called “free floating anxiety” in psychiatry. The fear comes of its own and after remaining for an hour or more, goes off its own. Also, aspen is useful when you have to go to any office for the first time to get job done. Hesitation with strangers, this remedy is almost specific for shyness and timidity.

Can Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Be Dealt With?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Can Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Be Dealt With?

Are you suffering from seasonal depression triggered by the change in season? This condition is known as seasonal affective disorder or SAD and primarily occurs during the winter. It usually starts when the days start getting colder and shorter. SAD requires treatment as it limits an affected person’s ability to smoothly carry out his or her everyday activities. Here are the several methods by which SAD can be treated or dealt with:

  1. Light therapy boxes: Light therapy boxes emit light which mimics sunshine in a particular way. This helps in recovery from SAD. The light from these therapy boxes are brighter than normal light bulbs and are of various wavelengths. The patient is required to sit in front of a light box for a period of 30 minutes every day. As a result, the circadian rhythms of the body get stimulated and the natural release of melatonin is suppressed. Light therapy is very effective when undertaken in the morning after waking up. It is a very common treatment used to cure SAD.
  2. Dawn simulators: Dawn simulators help in the management of SAD. These are devices which work as alarm clocks. However, instead of waking you up abruptly by means of a beep or loud music, they produce light which increases in intensity gradually, just like the sun. There are several models of dawn simulators which are available in the market. You should choose a dawn simulator, which uses a full spectrum light. This form depicts natural sunlight. For people with mild SAD, dawn simulators are as effective as light therapy.
  3. Consult a doctor: SAD is a type of depression and it is recommended that you to consult a psychiatrist. Several screening questions are asked to a patient to determine his/her level of depression. A doctor will also observe whether your depression is because of SAD or any other factor.
  4. Antidepressants: In case, psychotherapy or light therapy fails to cure your SAD and the accompanied depression, you should take prescribed antidepressants. These medicines might help in overcoming your seasonal depression. Try to avoid medicines which make you feel sleepy. If you have SAD, you should take antidepressants every winter and not just during the winters when you feel the blues.

It is very important for you to recognise the symptoms of SAD when they start showing, and consult a doctor immediately. This will prevent the symptoms from escalating and you will be able to get early treatment.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
