Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

I am diagnosed as case of atypical depression. From past few years I was not in mood of starting antidepressant medications. So after being seeing positive reviews of people on the internet and support from Lybrate doctors. Finally I got convinced to start medications. So started on tab. bupropion. Even I have seen some reviews on the internet where people are on antidepressants from several years. If antidepressants really works then why people are on antidepressants for years. Is it dependence or wht? I really don't want to knock with someone which will really make me addicted for lifetime.

Hi I am very glad that you asked this question, which many people have in mind. To explain you this I will give you one example. When we get frequent acidity that is mainly because of our wrong eating habit and sometimes other causes. We advise such patients to be on diet and medicines. Once patient stops medicines but goes back to old wrong eating habits, then the condition worsens and he needs to start on medicines again. So is he addicted to medicines or wrong food habits. He needs to change lifestyle with temporary support of medicines. Same way as our thinking is so our actions are and so the brain neurotransmitters released. Constant habit of negative thinking leads to same release of neurotransmitters and person needs to take medicine to correct depression to get these neurotransmitters in balance. He feels better, stops medicines and if he again falls back to same old negative thoughts he will suffer again. But during medications if he takes some thought changing therapies (includes gaining insight in thinking patterns), meditation, to improve his thinking to make himself strong to face adversities of life. He doesn't fall back to same problem whether it's depression or anxiety. Remember thoughts are our mental diet. If we are careful of our diet about calories even in biscuits now, then why can't we take some preventive measures of learning some self improvement techniques and mediation. For this reason we suggest our client to take therapy sessions along with medicines. Thank you.

Ways To Treat Dissociative Amnesia!

Ways To Treat Dissociative Amnesia!

In many cases, the body responds to a stressful or traumatic situation by disassociating with it. This can result in the development of a dissociative disorder. A dissociative disorder or dissociative amnesia is a mental illness that involves the breaking down of memory, consciousness, identity and perception. It can interfere with a person's general functioning, social life and relationships. People suffering from dissociative amnesia can have long gaps in their memory of the accident and the time before and after it. 

Women are at a higher risk of suffering from this condition as compared to men. It has also been found to have a genetic link as people suffering from this condition often have other members of their family who experience something similar. Manmade and natural disasters such as wars, floods, earthquakes etc that cause overwhelming stress is said to trigger this disease. 

The inability to recall past events is a primary symptom of this disease. Other symptoms include

Treatment for this disease is a two step process. The first step involves relieving symptoms and controlling any behavioral changes. The second step aims at helping the person to recall and process their memories. Developing coping skills and rebuilding relationships is also focused on. Depending on the individual and the severity of symptoms showcased a doctor may choose to treat the patient using any of the following forms of treatment. 

  1. Psychotherapy: This form of treatment is designed to encourage communication and give the person insight into their problems. It uses a number of psychological techniques. 
  2. Cognitive therapy: Changing dysfunctional thinking patterns and their resulting emotions and behavior patterns is the focus of this form of treatment.  
  3. Medication: Dissociative amnesia patients who also suffer from depression or anxiety can benefit from medication such as anti depressants and anti anxiety drugs. However, this medication does not treat the dissociative amnesia itself. 
  4. Family therapy: In some cases, along with the patient it is also necessary to counsel the family. Family therapy involves educating the family members about the disorder and symptoms of recurrence. 

Clinical hypnosis: This type of treatment uses intense relaxation and focused attention techniques to access the unconscious part of the mind and allow people to explore their thoughts, emotions and repressed memories. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Do anti depressants actually help cure depressions? I had taken them before, I saw no difference.

Do anti depressants actually help cure depressions? I had taken them before, I saw no difference.
You should then go for a review of the medication and either the doctor would have changed the medicine or dosage to effect some improvement. Additionally you must work with a counselor to develop skills and techniques to better handle the depression behaviourally. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Please suggest. How can a person increase its memory capacity and makes his brain stronger.

A healthy lifestyle can support your brain health and even encourage your brain to grow new neurons, a process known as neuroplasticity. Your brain’s hippocampus, i.e. the memory center, regenerates throughout your entire lifetime (even into your 90s), provided you give it the right tools to do so Lifestyle factors that may improve memory and promote neurogenesis include exercise, eating right, and getting proper sleep Other memory tricks include avoiding multitasking, learning a new skill, playing brain games and using mnemonics to help you remember information

He is addicted to drugs and not listening to anyone we have to tie him to not to go anywhere. Please guide us.

He is addicted to drugs and not listening to anyone we have to tie him to not to go anywhere. Please guide us.
This is a serious problem and needs to be dealt with on immediate basis. But the technique should be such that he should not come to know about the fact that he is being treated. Otherwise it may lead to worsening. Please elaborate the addiction that he has and any other symptoms and diseases. Do not worry. This is manageable but immediate intervention is required.

no one is not permanent friend in this world. except our family members. you are selecting one person when he does not care to you. then you feel anxious. it is not good for your health. it is better to make all of them as a friendly manner. then there is no chance of anxiousness.friendliness improves personal stamina. dont think about one person. feel and make a very good friendly relation with others.dont sit in home. and dont think aloneness. develop busy career schedule. express your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. friends are coming and going in our life. no one is not permanent. you have so much of age. some one comes to you he can understand your feelings properly. up to that wait. dont feel sadness. dont get irritated. dont be anxious. feel always comfortable. spend remaining with close friends and family members. do hard work on your studies. make a good preparation for studies. at this stage studies are important not one friend. so be hard work. be positive and be sociable. ok all the best.
