I can't tell if it's me or if it's prozac 20. I'm taking it since last year, and I've experienced like jaw clenching/trembling, no sexual interest, and memory lapse. Are there effective ways to treat PTSD? Do you have other medication recommendations for this?

These might be the side effects of the medicines or your ptsd. To hep you recover from ptsd, I suggest that you include counselling as part of treatment to help you to reduce the residual emotional impact of the incident and it's memories. Counselling can also help you to rehabilitate emotionally and socially if you are feeling lonely and isolated. Some tips to help you put the incident behind you and move on: 1. Get moving with doing physical exercises like running, jogging, sports, mountain climbing, biking, trekking etc. This will awaken the numbed nervous system and help you remain in today's reality rather than the past or the future. The exercise will help you to feel confident, powerful and in control of yourself and your surroundings as you complete each round of the activity. Relaxing in the lap of nature is an integral part of healing from ptsd. The quietness can be calming and healing to the tortured soul. 2. Meet people: connecting with gentle and understanding people who have the time for you and are non judgemental of your past will help you to heal the scars of the past and move beyond them. This gives a sense of safety, security and support which ptsd people need. 3. Remind yourself that you are alive after all: this in it self is a huge feeling of power over the source of trauma. If you can, help other people who are undergoing the same trauma or donate blood and volunteer with the underprivileged. This work is very healing in itself and you realise your own power to heal and help others. 4. Cut out smoking and alcohol and have a nutritious and healthy well balanced meals. This also helps the mind and body to recuperate from the trauma as the nutrition repairs any cell damage in the brain and body. Meditations, pranayama and yoga are very effective tools to reduce panic and anxiety attacks pertaining to ptsd.

Tips to overcome Stress

MBBS, DPM, DNB (Psychiatry)
Sexologist, Mumbai
Tips to overcome Stress

Exercise: to relieve stress and lift your mood. Exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression. Look for small ways to add activity to your day, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or going for a short walk. To get the most mental health benefits, aim for 30 minutes or more of exercise per day.
- get a dose of sunlight every day. Sunlight lifts your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of the sun per day. This can be done while exercising, gardening, or socializing.
- limit alcohol and avoid cigarettes and other drugs. These are stimulants that may unnaturally make you feel good in the short term but have long-term negative consequences for mood and emotional health

How can avoid negative thoughts,anxiety, tiredness and to give natural smiles to everybody?

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
You can avoid negative thoughts by practising looking forwards and focusing on strength and not weakness/ solutions and not problems/ looking after others and not own and responsible to all around.This comes by practice. Anxiety disappears if you think and solve any conflict immediately. If not you will be in a fix. You need to exercise daily meditate for few minutes do power yoga and breathing exercises slowly and yoga nidra. Try these and you will be laughing.

Hello, the best way of releasing the mental stress/ tension is through exercises (sp. Yoga and meditation) which increases your blood circulation, boosts up oxygen in each and every tissue of the body. But as you have high b. P, consult and do the exercises under a qualified instructor/ yoga-teacher only. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - bacopa monierri q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 20 days. Revert me back. Stress can make mental health problems worse.

You must go for counseling soon. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Stop Smoking

M.Ch, MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Bikaner

Smoking is bad for the spine.

You already knew that smoking is bad for your lungs and other organs, and that it puts you at greater risk for multiple kinds of cancer – now here’s another reason to steer clear of that increasingly unpopular habit. 
Not only does smoking reduce bone strength and blood flow that your spine needs to stay strong, but it also delays the healing process when you’ve been injured and reduces your likelihood of leading the physically active lifestyle that keeps backaches at bay.

My hubby keeps tobacco in his mouth. He is not at all able to stop it. So I am worried. Can any 1 please help me to make him stop it. I am fed up of explaining it's side effects. But he is that much addicted to it. He used nicotex and again stopped it and started tobacco again.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Never give up on him. After many attempts he is bound to succeed. I understand your frustration but be patient because as soon as you give up, he will too. Sometimes, it will be your motivation that will goad him on. But be very careful that you don? t nag him. You are what is called a? co-dependent, that is you have become dependent on him dependent on tobacco. You can at the most just remind him, get help for him and then leave it up to him. Ideally, if the motivation comes from him, it is the best. Sometimes, he will need to suffer some complications that will act as a? nail in the coffin? before he is ready to go for help. In addiction parlance, it is called? hitting rock bottom. In the meantime, he should be taken to an addiction counselor and start the process of cleaning up his act. Hypnosis will also help. Whenever he stops, immediately supplement his oral need with some substitute like candies, nicotine gums, juices, soups etc. Also have him visit a dentist and thoroughly clean up his mouth so that he feels bad about staining them again.

I am going through a divorce. After 6 months of marriage my husband said he feels incompatible with me and blamed me for everything, despite me trying my level best. I know i shouldn't have tried, seeing that he didn't love me to begin with, but with divorce proceedings starting now, I've lost all confidence in myself, feel depressed and scared of my future. I'm a doctor myself and i immediately don't want to start on medications. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You did the right thing. Before proceeding to divorce, I do ask both partners to put in their best effort and make every attempt to sort out the differences, and only then to go ahead with the divorce, if it all does not fructify. The reason you need to do this is that you can walk out of the marriage knowing that you did your best and it did not work out for good reasons. You will be clear in your conscience and will have no regrets after the divorce. You will carry your conscience with you always, and an unclear conscience will torment you that you could have done this and that, to save the marriage. Do not feel regret that you tried everything. Now due to the stubbornness of your spouse, it will all end but you have a guilt-free situation. If this was an arranged marriage, perhaps there were irreconcilable differences, but if it was a love marriage, then I think he could have seen these problems earlier. In that case he has been unfair. But he does not deserve any second thoughts: it?s just good riddance to bad rubbish. As quickly as possible, get going with your life. Get rid of all reminders of him, keep talking about the pain to get it out of your system and go out and meet friends. Get into a health routine: exercise well, sleep well, eat well and socialize well. Do not spend time moping about him. Do not be in a hurry to settle down with someone until you have gotten him out of your system, nice and clear. You have done well, and deserve better. You do not need any medication for all this. It is just a temporary phase.

Dear sir, I am in very much depression, pls suggest me, I have already use serta 100 mg for last 9 months but there is no good result. I am taking treating from pgi chandigarh

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must combine medical treatment with therapy to ideally combat depression. Seek a counselor who is well versed in treating depression to get you to develop skills and techniques to deal with the daily challenges that life throws at you. Medication does not give you these adaptations but it certainly addresses the chemical imbalances in the brain to bring about normalcy. Apart from that 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, nuts, 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 too. 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 too.
