Sir my uncle age 57 years old they have useing alchohal in very big value what can we to leave this bad habbit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called? cross addictions? i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If your uncle refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support he can get and act on it fast.

I am on following medicine combination for Major depression-Lametac-100-BD,Buprol-150Mg XL1-1-0 , Venlafaxine-75Mg BD and Arpizile-10Mg HS Psychiatric combination , can there be long acting combination or a single medicine for all these medicine

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Indore
If you are now better as per your depression diagnosis if it was MDD THEN ONLY aripiprazole AND LAMOTRIGINE CAN BE TAPPERED GRADUALY. If it is bipolar depression then stratigy can be different.there is no long acting combination for more then a day preparation.OD ONCE ADAY IS AVAILABLE. GRADUAL TAPERING DOWN ONLY TO ADEQUATE DOSE OF venlafaxine od 150 mg or 225 mg may be possible. I dont advise to do it own your own because self medication can be dangerous. Better go to your psychiatrist with your query,and ask him to try to settle yourself on single drug adquete dose. If you can talk to him sensibly he may be able to do this.Best luck.

You need to learn some behavioural techniques which will help you in managing your anxiety. You can talk to a counsellor who will help you with this. You are feeling better because of the medicines. So please consult your doctor before tapering it down or before stopping it. Talk to your doctor about starting therapy. Medication along with therapy will give you good results. And then after consulting your doctor and your counsellor you will be able to stop these medicines.

Sometime I forget some things I think week memory so what I do?I am just 21 year boy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, eat less fat, and use olive oil in your food, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out, if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of scleranthus + 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of pine + 4 drops of cherry plum. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every night. Hi my friend everything is in the mind. Think positive and control your mind.

I am a smoker. I smoke almost 30 cigarettes a day. I am planning to quit and switched to nico gum and I am able to stop smoking! Are there any side effects I ll face thro nico gum?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Side effects of nico gum include: increase heart rate, increased blood pressure, oral irritation, dental pain, hiccups, heartburn, nausea, and indigestion. The earlier you can stop this habit, the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol or smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking.

Hello lybrate-user. Many experience allergic skin reactions coming up in summer just as joint pains are commonly aggravated in winter. You need not worry. Drink plenty of fluids like water, buttermilk, fresh fruits and fruit juices. Avoid a very hot water bath. Have bath twice a day. Do not apply oil on body. Eat healthy. Sleep well. Take a course in homeopathy to take care of the internal disturbances. Your immunity will improve and next summer will be great!

Hello lybrate-user, Stress is one of the commonest situation we all are dealing in with and I can understand your pressures. Since we have to work and manage our personal life too it is important to keep a check on WORK-LIFE BALANCE. Try to take out some time for yourself and for relaxing activities which may help you improving your mood and health and in turn bring positive attitude too. Spending quality time with family and peers is also helpful along with regular exercises. Hope that keeps your BP in control. Take care of yourself. Life is valuable. Good luck.
