Depression Questions

Hello, I am 19 years old male from India undergoing severe stress and depression. Reasons:- I was supposed to enter engineering for Bachelor's degree back in 2017 but couldn't. Now, most likely* I will enter in 2019. So, I'd be having a 2 year gap. This is the cause of my depression. I even tried to end my life. Anxiety, headaches, depression have followed me since. My doctor has prescribed me Clobazam, Serta and Opiprol tablets (long way trial and error - Etizolam, Alprazolam, Clonazepam, Venlafaxine have all failed).

Hi, Can I take Celith 300 ie lithium carbonate tab twice a day Epitic 50 ie Lamotrigine tablets once a day.
Dear lybrate-user, Are you taking both Celith and Epitic as mood stabilizers for bipolar disorder? If so, please take both. Sometimes lithium carbonate helps well to control mania but not depression. Lamotrigine controls depression well.

Try these when you're feeling anxious or stressed: Take a time-out. Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head. Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Do keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand. Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks. Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest. Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below. Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly. Count to 10 slowly. Repeat, and count to 20 if necessary. Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn't possible, be proud of however close you get. Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think? Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way. Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Get involved. Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress. Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else you can identify? Write in a journal when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, and look for a pattern. Talk to someone. Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Talk to a physician or therapist for professional help.

Risperidone is the right medication if it was psychosis. It controls symptoms of psychosis and helps with sleep etc. If you think you have improved and feeling benefits continue with it but it has to be monitored by the psychiatrist regularly for any side effects. So it is good for you if the original diagnosis was right and the side effects always has to be balanced with benefits of taking it.

Here are things you can do at home to help your child manage his or her anxiety disorder: Pay attention to your child’s feelings. Stay calm when your child becomes anxious about a situation or event. Recognize and praise small accomplishments. Don’t punish mistakes or lack of progress. Be flexible, but try to maintain a normal routine. Modify expectations during stressful periods. Plan for transitions (For example, allow extra time in the morning if getting to school is difficult). Keep in mind that your child’s anxiety disorder diagnosis is not a sign of poor parenting. It may add stress to family life, however. It is helpful to build a support network of relatives and friends. It's important that you have the same expectations of your anxious child that you would of another child, according to psychologist Lynn Siqueland, PhD. She has specialized in treating children and adolescents with anxiety disorders for more than 15 years. She offers these parenting tips for anxious kids, as well as ways to manage siblings, whose lives are also affected.
