You can become a normal person but you need to combine medication with therapy. If you have no symptoms for about three years, you may reduce your medication and even stop it but always with the approval of your doctor. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger and fear, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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, spend time in nature or gardening, 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hello. I'm 32 weeks pregnant and on sertraline antidepressant - zosert 75 from 2 weeks. Still I am feeling quite depressed, crying spells, not interested in anything. Feeling very sad and hopeless. I'm not able to take care of my son or myself. And this guilt is eating me. What should I do now?

Kindly review with your psychiatrist and plan for treatment optimization with increasing dose of sertraline. This can be coupled or followed by augmentation with lamotrigine. Non pharmacological management would include relaxation techniques, psychotherapy. Also, bright light therapy should be considered as it is safe in pregnancy.

Hello. I am 8 months pregnant. Dr. has prescribed me zosert 50 and primox 50 for prenatal anxiety and depression. Has been taking it from 10 days. Depression is much better. With few on and off day sometime. But anxiety is not coming down. Shaking, sweating, tremors, numbness, muscles stiffness. Jittering and chills. Dr. told me to leave primox slowly. And take zosert 100. Instead. Will zosert 100 maintain both anxiety and depression?

Sertraline is safe and effective. Pls see that sertraline itself is not causing restlessness. Buspirone can be added to sertraline which is quite safe in pregnancy. Very low dose haloperidol can help anxiety in pregnancy and is safe.

Hey lybrate-user, I understand that this is a tough time for your family. While medications can be helpful, it may be very important for your father to seek emotional support and talk through his grief and issue with siblings with a therapist. Your therapist would help you to bring the thoughts and emotions triggering the depression, to your awareness and help you process them in a safe environment. So you learn to challenge the thoughts and behaviours perpetuating the symptoms in the first place. You can reach out to a trusted therapist in your city. You can also book a session with us at url/book-a-session/ we are available for online sessions. I understand that it can be painful watching someone you care for go through a difficult time and need a quick fix. But sometimes a long term solution takes a little time to achieve, but results are always healthier and longer lasting :) hope this helps. Take care!

Hi lybrate-user, this sounds really frustrating and confusing for you in the moment. While I see how medications are helpful, it might be important for you to reach out for emotional support and process these feelings that have come up due to your disappointment in love in the past and what it has triggered in you in the present. I understand we want a quick solution, but a long term solution for this sounds like going for therapy and learning how this event affects your thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns in the present. Your therapist will help you share and process these thoughts in a safe environment so you can work on establishing healthier thought and behaviour patterns.

Hi lybrate-user, I see how this is a stressful and confusing situation for you. I believe nexito forte is usually prescribed for anxiety disorders. For long standing anxiety, I am wondering if therapy may be a solution. Depression and anxiety is often best dealt with in therapy. Your therapist would help you to bring the thoughts and emotions triggering your anxiety, to your awareness and help you process them in a safe environment. The medication helps you control your symptoms and is possible why they come up for you again once you stop taking the meds. However, therapy would play a crucial role here to help you challenge these thoughts that lead to your symptoms in the first place and help you with tools to deal with them on a long term basis.

Hello I have a medication called risperidone 2 mg a anti psychotic. Is it okay to take it with kratom. I am 5'2 female 117.5 pounds with 19% body fat (weighed myself yesterday) and I have been using kratom for like 6 months and I noticed in high doses it can cause cns depression. Is it okay to take kratom at all while on the medication risperidone. I haven't taken the medication yet as of this time. The kratom I have is super green maylasian strain which is known to have opioid and stimulant effects at the same time. At least for me. Is it okay to take kratom while having the medication in your system at all? Can I take kratom in the morning and risperidone at night? I want to know if its okay to mix. I normally use 2-4 grams of kratom per day. Sometimes infrequently.

Dear user first of all I want to know that why you want to take medicine, as per your statement I think to some extent you are addicted to these medicines. You are too young to take these medicines, uses of these medicines in long term will definitely harmful. With medicines you need proper counseling and then we will taper you medicines accordingly. I donã¢â€â™t know what are the circumstances under which you are taking medicines, I want to know the whole details about your disorder. But due to certain reasons if you are on these medicines you have to take some extra care of yourself. You need counseling session for a better control on this disorder and medicines. Medicines are not the only solution, do not make it a habit fir future, counseling is a best option for you so that you could better understand yourself and save yourself from the side effects of medicines. Please call and discuss your problem in detail and then iã¢â€â™ll be able to help you better. My contact no is mobile.
