You need to consult the doctor who prescribed this medication and with his help, you may be able to gradually withdraw the medication. You should also meet with a counselor and discuss your sleep problem and find some natural alternatives. Some are suggested below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

If you find your symptoms recurring after stopping medication, it is an indication that your treatment is incomplete. Consult your treating psychiatrist and continue the medication as prescribed by them. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse, worsening of symptoms, incomplete resolution of symptoms and even resistance to treatment. Always take medication as prescribed for a specific period of time. Medication can be tapered, but only by the doctor, and only when there is significant improvement. Tapering is done very gradually.

I understand your loss and how you must be feeling about it. The loss of a loved one does cause all of us to feel low and affects daily activities etc. If however you find that you are unable to sleep, maintain appetite and take care of yourself pls do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist and take grief therapy. It is true that everyone goes through grief however how much it affects each of us varies.

Dear , you must read the low intelligence level with ibs and depression. Intelligence is the sum total of many practical aspects. Intelligence is not a single aspect of knowledge. Please understand intelligence improves with knowledge, interaction, experience and general awareness. That is the only way to improve intelligence. Take care.

Acute transient psychosis is diagnosed if the symptoms are less than 6 months only, when it exceeds it is schizophrenia. So kindly get your diagnosis re confirmed from the psychiatrist and follow his advice on treatment, you need to follow for many years, even life long. Make up your mind so that the thought of stopping medicines does not arise, and learn about social skills training and life style modification. All the best.

Since you admit you are obsessed with sexual thoughts on seeing females and have to compulsively masturbate after that to relieve the anxiety, it suggests that you have a obsessive compulsive symptoms. You have also attempted controlling them by diverting yourself to other activities but that failed. So I would suggest you to seek assistance with medicines and counseling from a psychiatrist. Consult online for further queries and help.

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals

Prioritizing is the most important step towards achieving goals
"You pile up enough for tomorrow. You' will find you are left with nothing, but a lot of empty yesterdays" - Prof Harold Hill

Life is busy. It seems it is impossible to move towards your dreams. If you have a full time job and kids, it's even more harder.

So if you don't purposefully carve time out every day to progress in diet and exercise and improve- no doubt without fail, your muscle mass will get lost in the bargain of muscle mass reducing with age

Before you know, you will be old and withered - wondering where all that time went.

So start acting now.

How to get rid of alcoholic addiction without moving to any rehabilitation center.

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, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. In no way you can control what others are going to sy or others says. Even if you do good, there will be people who ridicule and even if you do bad, there will be people who justify you. Therefore do not heed to people who are in no way going shape your life. I suggest you online counseling. Take care.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.
