My father is 58 years old suffering from depression, for past 6-7 years & he is depressed due to my sister marriage. After treatment and medicines he become fit and fine. Later 1-2 year ago he becomes more active, aggressive and energetic than before, this behaviour remains for 1+ years. From last 5-6 months he again slowly gets into depression and becomes less active, does not talk much, keep tensed. Doctor prescribed half tablet of gatomir 15 (mirtazapine) at night and 1 tablet of zotral 50 (sertraline) at morning for 15 days. However 7+ days are past but he is not eating properly and we does not see much improvement. Can you please explain is it normal while taking anti depression medicines, and is this medicine is ok? Can we wait for some more time for improvement or we contact our doctor to change medicines?

Hi lybrate-user, He is not suffering from Depression any more its taken form of Mania. A manic episode is characterized by period of at least 1 week where an elevated, expansive or unusually irritable mood, as well as notably persistent goal-directed activity is present. The mood disturbance associated with manic symptoms should be observable by others (e. G. Friends or relatives of the individual) and must be uncharacteristic of the individual’s usual state/behavior. These feelings must be sufficiently severe to cause difficulty or impairment in occupational, social, educational or other important functioning. Symptoms also cannot be the result of substance use or abuse (e. G. Alcohol, drugs, medications) or caused by a general medical condition. Three or more of the following symptoms must be present: Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity Decreased need for sleep (e. G. One feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep) More talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking Flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing Attention is easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant items Increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation Excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e. G. Engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments). Now when the situation alters between episodes of depression and Mania it is called BIPOLAR MOOD DISORDER and it will need a fresh treatment. So I advise you to get the medication changed if it is not helping your father.

Depression - Types, Symptoms And Homeopathic Remedies!

BHMS
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Depression - Types, Symptoms And Homeopathic Remedies!

Homeopathy is a medical science which is used to cure diseases and is based on the principle of "like cures like". It was developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who was a general physician by profession in Germany. The concept, "like cures like" may sound a bit weird but it is proved to be successful and homeopathy treatment for any ailment is preferred worldwide. Depression is a kind of mental ailment or disease which could make a person lose hope of living life and results in hopelessness and sadness.

There seems no cure to your problems. But in homeopathy we have the answer to your problem. First we need the signs and symptoms to identify depression. Homeopathy medicines are totally natural and have fewer side effects than allopathic versions.

Types of depression:

  1. Depression due to stress
  2. Depression due to menopause
  3. Depression due to work load
  4. Depression in teenagers
  5. Depression in old people
  6. Major depression
  7. Atypical depression
  8. Dysthymia
  9. Seasonal Affective Disorder

Symptoms of depression are:

  1. Feeling hopeless and sad - The first signal or symptom is feeling of hopelessness. In this, the patient loses the hope in everything. They feel like being trapped in some kind of cage from which they are not able to come out.
  2. Lack of interest in anything - Everything seems to be of no use or interest, even your daily work. You don't want to do anything; even the things which you loved to do like your hobbies and passions which you no longer find interesting.
  3. Sleep irregularity - Insomnia or oversleeping. Either you sleep too much or do not sleep at all. This could be because of work or other stress in your personal or professional life.
  4. Irritation or unnecessarily getting angry - You start losing your temper easily and that too for silly reasons. You think you are losing control.
  5. Appetite problems- You either stress eat too much or too less or sometimes not at all. You are not willing to even eat your favourite dish.
  6. Concentration problems- You can't focus or concentrate on a particular thing for a long time. 
  7. Frustration - You start feeling worthless and might even think of ending your life and getting out of this problem. Your behaviour changes and you can't think properly on one topic.

No need to get disheartened if the above symptoms are plaguing you, because the solution of your problem is in homeopathy. Homeopathy medicines do not have side effects and they remove the ailment from the roots. Medicines like Arsenicum Album, Ignatia, Natrum Muriaticum, Sepia help in various kinds of depressions. These should be taken in proper quantity as directed by the physician to get cured properly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation. If you are feeling hopeless or suicidal consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Hi, you are very young to have such a problem, this is a psychological problem not a real problem that you should first understand. You do not have any medical issue, the problem is in your thinking. I could suggest you to first have a good sleep, ignore all the thoughts running in you, while going to sleep that is just say all are false (nothing is wrong with me I am fine) you have go to keep saying this and you have got to fight against this thinking and sleep well. Because of not having a sound sleep only, you have pain in your head. Try to attend yoga for relaxation. Try to change your mind set (divert, fight against your false thinking, have a sound sleep) let me know after following these steps, whether you were able to relax without pain or not. Get back to me after two or three days, after strictly following these steps. I want to know who is along with you to give some more suggestions to you only. Best wishes

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear cause grief and grief related depression is usual. Grief related depression stays for some days or weeks. If it is lasting for more than 2 months, you need psychological therapies. Take care.

I am becoming extremely depressed and lonely. I am going thru a rough time and sometimes I wish there was someone there for me whom I could just hug and cry. My mother and father live abroad while I have been studying in india in hostel for past 6 years. Of course my parents love me and care for me but their mindset is different. They provide for me and protect me, they ask about my health and studies and if all is ok? But I can not open up to them because they do not understand my issues. They do not believe in showing physical affection. They think its awkward now that im a grown woman. But deep inside I still a little girl crying out for love care affection and acceptance. I can not have a boyfriend. Dad will definitely disown me. Girls in my hostel are very competitive and I have not found a best or anyone too close although I do have many friends. I feel so low and socially crippled. I can not even make small talk to people anymore without it being awkward. How do I address this need to be loved and accepted that making me restless?

Hello there are few specific techniques used in positive psychology to help you change any behavior. First of all you must realize and accept that any change will require efforts and time. There are no magic pills when it comes to behavior change. You need to practice patience and persistence. As a human being we have immense potential within us. I am sure once you are determined to make positive change with proper tools, guidance and support you would be able to attain your goal. Also it is always more effective if we put a goal of achieving something in stead of not having something. So think about what will happen when you are not agree. What will you gain when you are calm and in full charge of your emotion and action.
