Dear Srinivas, No tablet is safe, whether short term or long term. Doctors prescribe tablets for getting the benefit out of it. They know the short and long term side effect and they will be monitoring benefit vs side effect continuously. You need to go for regular follow up consultations.

Hi lybrate-user! sorry to know about your wife's condition. Somatoform disorder is physical symptoms of an underlying psychological distress. So we need to know in depth what is causing this issue. Meeting a clinical psychologist can help you manage therapy effectively which will majorly consist of stress reduction techniques and cognitive behavior therapy which helps to overcome negative thought patterns. Therapy in somatoform disorder is highly effective. Here a healthy patient doctor connection can help her remove all pent up emotions and bring out her lighter and healthier side. Do connect with a psychologist as soon as possible. Hope she feels better soon! god bless!

Hi team, I am suffering from a mental illness. I need a suggestion from a psychologist. Here is my complaint. I am 24 years old and am a software professional. I have two older sisters. First sister got married three years ago and has a kid. She just qualified ssc and was a homemaker. She is not having any idea of the outer world. She is unable to handle her family. Even for very little issues she will cry and come to our house. She won't communicate with her husband, my parents also are worried about her issues only. In our house daily something or the other issue has been discussed. Due to this I am mentally distracted and am unable to feel and work peacefully. Parents suggest just to ignore. But that is not very easy. since everything happens in front of my eyes only. I am also a patient. Am having seizure (fits) since seven years. Parents also know this. Doctors suggested to be peaceful and not to think much. But that is not happening. Moreover parents are worried about the other two of us getting married and they have no plan to settle both of us. For three years they have been thinking about first sister and her issues only. Aren't we their kids? Am getting a bad impression on everyone in the family. Thinking first sister is the main cause for the issues. How can I be peaceful? Please give me suggestions. People say to ignore and do my work. But literally it's not working out. Thanks

Social Media - How Does It Affect Our Mental Health?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Social Media - How Does It Affect Our Mental Health?

Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor and snatches away the boon of communication.

Below mentioned points showcase how social media addiction negatively affects our mental health:

  1. Peer Pressure- Social media use also creates the fear of missing out because you want to do what everyone else is doing. This evokes anxiety and will give rise to negative feelings and emotions, which again create mental health problems and stress and anxiety disorders
  2. Fatigue and Stress- When you are using social media, you are constantly switching from one task to another because there is just so much to do and see. This information abundance can tire out your brain, especially when it is received chaotically. Your brain needs time and room for absorbing the data and processing the information, but multitasking on social media makes your brain work overtime. This can prevent it from relaxing and it will become exhausted as it tries to deal with the barrage of information. Hence, the fatigue puts your mind under a lot of stress and you may not be able to concentrate on anything at all.
  3. Social Anxiety- Even though the whole point of social media is to allow people to stay connected with others, it doesn’t have the same satisfaction and element associated with actual human interaction, which is a crucial human need. In fact, in some ways, it is too distant and this is not a good thing for those who become dependent on social media as it can lead to social anxiety. Those who are already suffering from this problem will find it even more difficult to indulge in face-to-face interaction. Real human interaction can become extremely scary for people as it is becoming common to hide behind your computer screens and not go out at all.
  4. Distraction- Social media is just tailor-made for decreasing our productivity because you spend hours looking at everyone else’s life when you could be doing something else. This means that most of your time is spent on viewing photos, liking posts, and writing comments and these activities don’t really require the use of your intellectual abilities. They aren’t intellectual at all and distract you from activities that are such as reading, studying informational articles on the internet, etc. Your brain doesn’t get enough food for development and your intellectual abilities can decline in this way. Your brain will slow down and not be able to respond quickly in various situations.
  5. Insecurity- One of the major problems with social media is that posts typically present an idealized version of what’s going on in everyone’s life. Usually, what you see isn’t actually reality because everyone has their problems and issues. Nevertheless, you end up comparing your own life with that of others and think less of your own. If people in your newsfeed seem to be having a good time, it will make you envious and affect your mood negatively. Research has shown that widespread use of social media can demotivate people, make them aggressive and cause a decline in confidence.
  6. So are you being adversely affected by social media? Here are some signs to look out for:

  7. Low self-esteem.
  8. Feeling low when you see other people's images and lifestyle.
  9. Envy of others people lives - wishing your life was like someone else's.
  10. Finding social media as your first and only choice of activity done for enjoyment.
  11. Not having as many face to face conversations with your relatives and friends and feeling disconnected.
  12. Being unable to do anything without feeling you need to share it online. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 18 right now and I lost my father when I was 14, this question is about mental health. I hardly get good sleep and my circadian rhythm is messed up. I had some family issue with my grandparents and uncles currently don't have any financial issues. My relatives said some crude words that I still think about everyday and feel head aches like my head is tensed. Everyday before sleeping I overthink I am clearly known with the fact that what I am doing wrong and is shouldn't overthink but can't help it. I have had serious suicide thoughts sometimes for absolutely stupid reasons. I am not a social guy and ever since I joined a private college for pol. Tech. I am out of contacts with other peoples I haven't made friends in 4 years and now I even started preferring not to talk to anyone. Now I am having problems while studying and I sometimes get jumbled and things just don't get in my head. I was a sharp student back in 11th grade I even skipped grades when I was little. My blood pressure was around 145/65 last time when I got it measured. I want to know if I should go to a psychiatrist for consultancy I am scared to ask so trying to post anonymously here. Any help is appreciated.

Hello lybrate-user! the very fact that you have expressed this in this platform shows your interest to seek for help. Never hesitate to consult. From what I feel after reading your concern, it seems like you need a space to vent out your feelings at the same time, find out ways to deal with the difficulties. I would suggest you also take up counselling/therapy sessions. I can help you with that.

I’ve been having a lot of mental health issues for the past year. It’s getting dangerous and I am unable to see an in person doctor due to circumstance so I am asking here so I can get a little clarity about it. Within the span of one day I have extreme mood swings. This includes self harm and vivid images and visualizations of suicide. I am getting incredibly close to doing so. With this in mind, within the same day I can reach extreme moods on the opposite spectrum. I can’t stop talking and everything feels like a rush of overstimulate. During this “high” sometimes I will self harm as well. I’m confused and scared, could I get some insight into what I should do or how concerned I should be?
