It's very difficult to answer your question, as we are not allowed to write prescription here. Also, we do not know what are the medications you took for your condition in the past ('all' is too generic). All the current medications are good, and proven for long term efficacy. Just want to add, take nexito forte, petril beta in the evening or night, as have potential for sedation. You might discontinue pristiq and mirtaz if facing problems after consulting psychiatrist (don't stop abruptly). Your ibs needs treatment of its own. Seek help from a gastroenterologist if not relieved by current medications. You will need detailed evaluation, so would advise you to consult psychiatrist.

Anxiety - 5 Tips To Reduce It Instantly!

Anxiety - 5 Tips To Reduce It Instantly!

Living with anxiety on a daily basis can be really stressful. And while you are dealing with anxiety, it is very important not to sway away with the symptoms and commit yourself to a treatment. For instant release of anxiety, you really don't need to go for a vacation or to the spa or a weekend retreat. It is easy to beat anxiety within 5-15 minutes, just being where you are.

So don't think and instantly reduce your anxiety to give yourself a wonderful day. Here are 5 ways to reduce your anxiety immediately:

  1. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. As per a research, doing meditation daily changes the neural pathways of the brain, thereby making it more flexible towards stress. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  2. Deep Breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth. Psychologists state that deep breathing helps to bring down stress and anxiety by lowering the blood pressure.
  3. Laugh Aloud: A good laugh is a great way to shed off the stress and anxiety. When you laugh, chemical endorphins are released which elevate your mood. A good laugh also lowers the cortisol levels which are the stress hormone.
  4. Talk to someone: Distracting yourself by talking to friends and family helps. The mind starts wandering when in anxiety and alone and the effective technique to talk to some trusted person helps. The support you get from family and friends just boosts you back and wards you off the symptoms. In case of a panic attack, you can request the company of a friend and relative to watch over you.
  5. Trick your anxious thoughts: Anxiety does not happen suddenly but is due to the mind's tendency to have negative thoughts spiraling day in and day out and the worse is that you have no control over the thoughts. Learn to tamethese thoughts and the triggers which cause these to keep anxiety at bay.

There are strategies which you can try to help you keep anxious thoughts away.

1. Question yourself when you experience anxiety. A long checklist helps you make your thoughts more realistic.
2. Give affirmations to yourself that everything is okay, you will get over the situation. Usually, affirmations are made to comfort one.
3. Know the physical symptoms as many times physical sensations like in case of a panic attack tend to trigger anxiety and stress. When you get used to the symptoms, the mind does not send signals for anxiety to the brain. Create exercise to habituate yourself to a panic attack. There is no cure for anxiety but the fastest way to get your anxiety under control is to simply manage it.

Sometimes medicines cause what is called postural hypotension. Sometimes, benign vertigo can be a side effect. Not to worry right now. Just follow these: 1. Drink plenty of water (3-4lit/day) 2. Don't get up suddenly from sitting or lying down posture. Allow a few minutes before starting moving around after getting up. 3. Check your bp occasionally.

Unani Therapy For Sexual Anxiety!

Unani Therapy For Sexual Anxiety!

Sexual interaction is not only about physical intimacy but has a lot to do with your mental and emotional state. Being in a perfect physical, mental and emotional state of mind enhances the sexual performance by several folds. Unfortunately, for some couples, sex can be a nightmare, leaving them depressed and stressed out. Some individuals get cold feet at the mere thought of sex, a condition known as sexual anxiety or sexual performance anxiety.

There can be many factors that contribute towards sexual anxiety in both males and females. While stress (physical and mental) is believed to be a leading trigger, the problem can also be an outcome of a strained relationship or not being happy about one's own body. At times, sexual anxiety can also surface when an individual tries too hard to satisfy their partner in bed.

How Unani can help in overcoming sexual anxiety?
Sexual anxiety may not be a small problem as it often appears to be. Unattended for long, sexual anxiety can trigger erectile dysfunction and ejaculation problems (such as premature ejaculation, having difficulties in getting an erection) in males. Females too might find it difficult to get an orgasm. The Unani treatment, believed to have its origin in Greece (introduced in India by Persians and Arabs), never fails to enthral us with its unique treatment.

Also known as Greco-Arabs medicine or Oriental medicine, Unani believes that a diseased condition is a natural body process while the associated symptoms are nothing but the body's reaction to the disease. According to Unani, there are four vital senses of humour in the body - Phlegm (Balgham), Blood (Dum), Yellow bile (Safra) and Black bile (Sauda). These humour are responsible for keeping the body well nourished so as to ensure optimum activities of the vital body organs.

Before treating the patient, the physician (Hakim) will carefully study the pulse of the patient to understand the functioning of the humour and also to identify the humour that is dominant over the others. Depending on the severity of sexual anxiety, the physician may recommend

  • Detoxification of the body to exclude the harmful toxins out of the body, enhancing the overall functioning and immunity of the body. This procedure is also known as Regimental Therapy (Ilaj Bil Tadbeer).
  • Since sexual anxiety is often found to be triggered by physical and mental stress, the Unani system also emphasizes the need to eat balanced and nutritious foods. The healthy dietary modifications go a long way to improve the condition of sexual performance anxiety. This therapy is known as Dietotherapy (Ilaj Bil Ghiza).
  • Based on the associated discomfort, Unani medicines which are 100% natural (based on plant products and herbs) are given to the affected individuals, a therapy termed as Pharmacotherapy (Ilaj Bil Dawa). Pharmacotherapy, amalgamated with Regimental Therapy and Dietotherapy plays a pivotal role to alleviate the complications and discomfort associated with sexual Anxiety, ensuring all the four senses of humour are in balance.
  • In cases where sexual anxiety is a result of some underlying medical condition, surgery (Jarahat) may be required.

First you should try to find out what is your main cause of anxiety or your trigger point. If you find it then try to get away from those triggers. You may also use meditation or deep breathing exercises this will help to you to stay calm and relax. Follow a healthy diet schedule and sleep well. Try to follow this lifestyle for about 1 week you will surely feel some relaxation. Still you can't find it helpful you can consult a doctor or a counsellor.

Alprazolam is given for immediate relief. But it's only prescribed for short term ie 2-3 weeks max. As it has habit forming potential if taken for long. Since you are very young, I would suggest you to take it only on sos basis ie only if required whenever you feel anxious. If you are feeling ok then don't take medications on that day. This way you shall take it once a while and not everyday. Hence reducing the risk of addiction to the medication.

Any physical discomfort or symptom if present for long time can be a source of stress. It ought to make you feel anxious and depressed. It's understandable. It can happen to anyone in your place. But please be calm. Firstly you have to find the root cause of the problem. Have you shown to an ent specialist for your nose block? Secondly sometimes it might be allergic, seasonal or perennial. Thirdly you must avoid triggers that cause nose block e.g. Air conditioner, eating refrigerated food and drinks, etc. Find out your triggers. You must understand that it's only a symptom. You are not suffering from any major physical illness so don't worry. Besides this if there's any other stress in your like that can also trigger depression. Please consult for detailed evaluation and treatment if required.
