Can you suggest a vitamin supplement for panic attacks / Generalized anxiety disorder ?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Panic attack is a condition in which a person have sudden onset of extreme anxiety associated with chest discomfort/chest pain, choking sensation in throat, dryness in mouth, dizziness, headache, palpitation, increased heart beat, churning sensation in abdomen, hot flushes or cold extremities, tremors, fear of impending doom (feeling as if going to die) or fear of going crazy. The condition arises abruptly and builds up very fast. it mimics heart attack and warrants repeated hospitalization, unnecessary medications and investigations. In Generalized anxiety disorder the patient always have ongoing anxiety on minor day to day issues, patient feels himself/ herself on the edge always and experience worry, preoccupation with negative thinking, insomnia and poor self confidence. These illness can be cured with psychiatric medicines only. vitamins can't. By the way the medicines you mentioned is a cocktail and not the desired medicine for Anxiety disorder.

I got addicted to smoking from last 2 to 3 months. I am not a chain smoker. I have reduced it to a great extent. Is there any way to counter the harm which I have done in last couple of months.

Dear Apoorv. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Two to three months smoking can do very little damage to your body. Stop smoking and drionk enough water and fruit juices. Your body will start repairing itself. Within another three months everything will be back to normal. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, 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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Hi Dr. My problem is that I have a bf almost 4 years r going to complete for our relationship. He too loved me a lot n care for me. He never had forced me or ask me for physical relationship. He's in civil engineering in 1st year diploma. He talked me whole day whenever I msg him he talks to me. But The problem is that 15 days 20 days becomes n we don't meet. I really wanna see him whenever I see others couples I feel sad. I always ask him to meet he ignores or he changed the topic otherwise he start irritating me n laughed for no reason n I get irritated then we both fight and than it leads to misunderstanding. I know he is busy but I wan him to meet me spent little time with me ones in a week or ones in 15 days. When he refuses I get hurt n start crying I think a lot on this matter and than I can't concentrate on my studies. He really a good guy I know please give advice how can I make him realize? Thank you.

First of all you have to understand one thing that its very crucial time for career to both of you, you should focus on long term objectives rather than focusing on short term objective But on your side you are not wrong every one wants to spend time with their loved ones infact you love him so much that inspite of not meeting him regularly you are able to continue such a beautiful relation this shows the deepness of your love because now a days with decreasing moral values many relations are ending in 1or 2 years. Now lets come to your problem talk to your boyfriend normally and say your feelings and say him that you want to discuss this matter ,listen his problems and try to convince him but don't be in agressive mood listen him patiently, both of you can take help of counsellor also. If you need my help you can contact me. Take care.

Hi, you did not expect tour father to label you like that which led to your withdrawn behavior, lack of motivation and feeling stigmatised. See, you have a long life to go a long journey to complete. After birth we are on our own. You have to do yourself good by managing your illness. I'm sure a nice doctor will understand you. Stick to one doctor. Take proper medication. Full course and you will be able to overcome. Also its necessary to take psychotherapy/ counseling for which you can consult me. If both are done soon you will see a change and will be better. The thing is you don't have to focus on diagnosis you have to focus on solutions. Have faith and you will overcome it. Will help you. All the best.

Hii, Happy for you that you are under treatment for OCD. Just want to say you that don't take any medicine by your own.

Dear lybrate-user, Please do not give much importance to yourself. Other members of your family are there, even if they are poor. Don't give too much importance to thoughts also. Thoughts come in waves and go away. If you can not do this on your own, please take the help of a clinical psychologist. With treatment, you will enjoy life and whatever has been bestowed on you.

Hi I am 32 years old and not able to drive vehicle. And when try to learn drive fells nervous.

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
From an external view, and from your description, you are having driving phobia. If you want desperately to learn driving, you should go through systematic de-sensitization therapy. Otherwise take it easy. There are many people out there who don;'t drive. Worrying about your inabilities worsens anxiety and stress. Take care.

It seems that your indecisiveness stems up from your childhood days and it has become an ingrained character in your personality. Our personalities are nothing but a set of well formed and practised behaviour. If you wish to change your indecisiveness and become independent, you have to take an initiative and start working on it. Consult a psychiatrist personally. Discuss on all your issues with a complete history of your complaints. A definite and planned rational emotive therapy course of few sessions would certainly help you. Good luck. Take care.

Relaxation is the best way to overcome anxiety. Don't worry unnecessarily. Keep yourself calm and cool. Practice deep breathing exercises. Think positively. Always believe that whatever happens is for good. Manage your work and time properly.

Hello, thanks for the query. What is your sisters age? since when these problem behaviors have started? these behaviors are suggestive of a mental illness named ocd (obsessive compulsive disorder) which can be completely controlled with help of some medications & counselling. If you need help, you can revert back to me or consult a psychiatrist. Good luck.

You need to organize study, excercising, good sleep, prioritize, make notes, answer ols question papers, concentrate and enjoy studying, avoid negative thoughts and drugs or alcohol. Be present minded. Look forwards. Never look back. Be confident you will succeed. Practice reading and revising as many times as you can without stressing.

Dear Viraj, General Anxiety disorder treatment consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, You will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.
