I have suffered with anxiety, feeling of heart beat, nervousness and sleeping disorder from last one month. Presently taking alprazolam 0.25 But it is very difficult to get sleep at night. However I have no any type of stress. Suggest me which is the best and safe between alprazolam vs etizolam.

Both are equally bad with negative effects on psyche. Stop sleeping tabs gradually as rebound effects can be worse than initial symptoms, every negative emotion surfaces. May be you do not need any medicines. Take a glass of warm milk with honey at bed time, watch soothing programmes on tv and listen to music, read good books. If day has been spent well while on the job, there is no reason that a person will require medicines to get sleep. Yoga and relaxation exercises do help reduce the stress & the stress in your case is that you do not get enough sleep. Remember some leaders at 65 + sleep only for 5-6 hours and work non stop for 18 hours a day.

What is the effect to stop adwize tablet after taking this tablet for 3 and half years to cure my autistic child now aged 13 years, who is also is an epilectic patient.

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS

Your child has to continue Antiepileptic medication. As regards Autism ia an associated disorder, hence advisable not to stop medication. You can see Autism is a condition that affects mental and physical well being. In fact autism is not a single disorder rather a group of ailments that is classified as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Autistic children have problems with social interactions. They may also encounter problems with verbal and non-verbal communication, exhibit pattern of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests, hyper sensitive to light, sound, touch etc (sensory overload). Otherwise majority of the cases are diagnosed anywhere between the age of 2-5 years. Interestingly, there are many individuals who may have ASD but never aware of it. Though the exact cause for autism is unknown, genetics plays an important part. Environmental, immunological and metabolic factors may have a contributory role. Since, it is a spectrum of disorders, there is no single reason attributed to this condition. Genetic, environmental, immunological and metabolic causes may be the contributing factor. Where genetic basis is identified as a cause, palliative measures are initiated immediately. When the reasons are not clear, diagnosis, classification and management invariably gets delayed. As stated earlier under watchful eyes of parents or family physicians, autistic symptoms could be recognized early. Severely autistic infants do not make normal babbling sound and have abnormal eye movements. Some of the symptoms include but restricted to limited vocabulary, unable to follow verbal or facial cues, abnormal eye movement or hand eye co-ordination etc. They also tend to make incoherent sounds. These children also do not follow simple commands. Many times these symptoms are glossed over delaying early diagnosis. Denial, my child is normal attitudes contribute to the delay in early diagnosis. In general ASD is loosely classified into five different types. However, this classification is hotly debated. 1. Pervasive developmental disorder(PDD) - Children suffering from PDD show delay in development of social and language skills 2. Kanner?s syndrome - This is most common type of autistic disorder. They live in their own world and have poor social interactions. They do not like any change in their routine. Individuals with this disorder get affected by loud sounds and cannot lead a normal life as they have low communication skills 3. Rett?s syndrome - Usually seen in females and is quite rare. They are mentally retarded and show muscle atrophy. The individuals show repetitive hand movements. 4. Childhood disintegrative disorder- The symptoms starts to appear in otherwise normal children between 2-4 years of age. They stop talking and interacting with people around them. Individuals start losing motor skills after the age of two 5. Asperger syndrome- Often misdiagnosed as obsessive ?Compulsive disorder or Attention ?Deficit disorder. They don?t show normal social interactions and have problems communicating. Children with Asperger syndrome show repetitive actions and exhibit poor motor skills. Some are thought have talent on which if they focus on could reach great height. Autism is known for decades, unfortunately, there are very few medications available to treat ASD. However, not all hopes are lost. In contemporary medical system (allopathic medicine) different symptom specific treatment options are offered for autistic patients. It is to be noted that these are mood altering medicines. Therefore, qualified physicians should be consulted and the medications administered under care. Ayruvedic approach: In ayurveda there are some herbal medications prescribed for autistic individuals. These are more of remedial measures than cure. Therefore, these medications are to be taken for life. As in many mood altering disorders, besides medications, management is suggested. Very interestingly, an Indian mother of an autistic son, Mrs. Soma Mukhopadhyay, developed Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) to train autistic children to lead near normal life. This has been demonstrated to be a boon for several severely autistic children. Her son Tito Mukhopadhyay is indisputably the most famous Indian with autism. With his mother?s guidance he had written many poems and authored a book titled ?Beyond the Silence: My Life, The World and Autism. Noting her revolutionary method she was brought to the United States by Cure Autism Now Foundation. Since then she had refined her techniques. Currently she is running ?Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach ? HALO? foundation (www.Halo-soma.Org). Recently, she had published a book ?Understanding autism Through Rapid Prompting Method? that details the technique developed by her.

You need to consult a psychiatrist. You seem to have classical anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is due to altered serotonergic system in the brain, and can very well treated with medications, All the best.

For the last seven to eight years, I was diagnosed as suffering from "affective disorder" As per psychiatrist I am suffering mild depression. It manifested then I was unable to sleep for days and, less confidence, fear of loosing and defeat. Doctor suggested antidepressant medicine and for sleep. I feel better but I have been hooked with the medicine. On any day if I do not take the medicine, I remain whole night, no sleep, only roll on the bed. I am with the medicine, but I do not feel weel in the morning, lethargy whole day, feel sleepy, but poor sleep in the night. My sleep breaks sometimes at 2, or 3 a.m. And remain in an unconscious state but full aware of night is passing away dawn is there. Can I get a permanent solution to all these problem and weak immunity, weak digestive power. A.K.Sarkar.

If you have trouble sleeping, there are some things you can do to help yourself get a good restful night. These include making changes in: your environment your behaviour and routine your thinking change your environment are there any helpful changes you can make? bedroom too light (or dark) bedroom too hot or too cold bedroom too noisy bed too uncomfortable partner keeping you awake? (snoring, restless etc) tv, computer, tablet or mobile in your bedroom making changes to your environment so that your bedrooms become a restful place for sleeping. Remove excess light (particularly blue light), make sure the temperature is right, and check the bed and pillow are comfortable. If you cannot reduce the noise, then consider ear-plugs designed for sleep use. Remove tv and device screens from your bedroom, and read from a conventional book rather than an e-book on a back-lit screen. Change your behaviour use your choice of relaxation technique before going to bed (whatever works for you) do not go without sleep for a long time if you can help it. Keep to a regular pattern of going to bed and getting up at the same time every day, whether you are tired or not keep bed for sleep. No watching television, browsing the internet or checking your email or social media. Get some exercise during the day. Try some regular swimming or walking. Avoid exercise late in the evening. Reduce the caffeine (tea, coffee, some soft drinks) in the evening. Try a milky drink instead. Don`t drink a lot of alcohol. It may help you fall asleep, but you are more likely to wake up during the night. Don`t eat or drink a lot late at night. Try to have your evening meal early rather than late. If you have had a bad night, resist the temptation to sleep the next day which will make it harder to get off to sleep the following night. If something is troubling you and there is nothing you can do about it right away, try writing it down before going to bed and then tell yourself to deal with it tomorrow. If you cannot sleep, don`t lie there worrying about it. Get up and do something you find relaxing like reading or listening to quiet music. After a while you should feel tired enough to go to bed again. Keep a sleep diary for a week. Then you can look back and notice what helps you sleep better and what doesn`t, so you can make positive changes and do more of what helps, and less of what doesn`t. If nothing seemed to help, try something different. Avoid clock watching when in bed and put your attention somewhere restful change your thinking worrying about not sleeping will keep you awake! rather than put your focus of attention on the worrying thoughts, notice that they are just thoughts, then put your attention somewhere restful, use imagery, mindful breathing, or your relaxation technique. Tell yourself that worrying about it will not help, and that you probably are getting enough, just less than you think you need. Our needs change as we get older. If you're worrying about a particular problem, write it down, and tell yourself you can sort it in the morning. Distract yourself by thinking about a random sequence of objects for a few seconds each. E. G. A table, a tree, a saucepan, a flower, a cow, a cloud etc. Or you could think about a few items beginning with the letter" b" then move on through the alphabet.

I am not able to concentrate on my studies because of mobile internet and laptop what should I do?

M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
At present times we all are using internet for our work. Try to use the internet for the study purpose. You try to select what you want to watch in internet. Make your time table. You search for study materials from the internet along with your academic text book. You will find a very interesting way of learning and you knowledge will increase. Try avoiding going much towards entertaining parts of internet, even though it is very attractive part. You are an matured individual. You should have control on your life. It may appear very difficult in the beginning but slowly you will realize the change. So, just try to use the internet in different ways and you will see things will fall in line.

I am pursuing my Phd in very short period of time(less than three years). Now I am in last 4 months. I have to make use of every minute of my life but I am not able to be calm down patiently and sit for my work. I have 1000 of things running together in my mind. Generally in day time I feel strengthy and in evening I feel depressed. I have plan to go for counselling after my phd for better understanding of myself. But as of now I am in emergency and I need to concentrate a lot but I am not able to. I feel anxious and runaway everytime from the situation.

The stress of the course may be causing all the discomfort. Do not wait for the course to end because counseling will relieve a lot of the distress and aid you in the completion of PhD with flying colors. You need not spend too much time in the counseling process. Even if you do, it is going to be invaluable to your course. You are mistaken to think otherwise. If you are interested I could also send you some exercises which will help you stabilize and concentrate. This is still no substitute for counseling though.

You are just 21 years and you can see what effect relationships have on us. Well I hope you have learnt some lessons before you move on.Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.
