Overview

Withdrawal Symptoms: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

There are no synonyms to withdrawal symptoms.

How is the treatment done?

Withdrawal symptoms generally arise due to the absence of a drug. This could be drugs like marijuana, LSD, or simpler forms of pain relievers or antidepressants. These could also include alcohol. The individual depends highly on these drugs to carry out day to day functions. The absence of these drugs makes the individual’s routine haywire and cause him or her to show signs of withdrawal.

Withdrawal symptoms include goosebumps, anxiety, common sweating, vomiting and muscle pain.

Withdrawal symptoms occur because the body is desensitized to the intake of drugs for a long time. If the body senses a minimisation or absence of that drug intake, the adaptation takes time causing the person to feel woozy. The nerve receptors in the brain become accustomed to this type of dependency and the absence makes the receptors respond in a severe way causing symptoms that would mentally and physically harm the patient.

Individuals generally become dependant on the drug or alcohol to relieve themselves of stress or pain. In most cases, the individuals do not even realise that they are dependant on the drugs and alcohol in the first place, which leads to withdrawal symptoms later to combat the loss.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Withdrawal symptoms can be treated with ease. The physician might require the patient’s medical history and also ask about the drug usage.A urine sample or blood test might be taken to check the same.

Mil symptoms of withdrawal can be treated with aspirin, acetaminophen and inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen. This can be accompanied by proper hours of rest. Being in a controlled environment would help the patient to control his or her symptoms.

Severe cases of withdrawal would require the patient to be hospitalised. Medications can also be used in an inpatient setting, generally known as clonidine. This medicine is effective and reduces the symptoms by 50 to 75%.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

Anyone going through withdrawal symptoms can undergo treatment. In case of babies, the doctor would be strictly supervising the infant at all times.

Are there any side effects?

There are no restrictions for treating withdrawal symptoms.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

There are no side effects for treating withdrawal symptoms.

How long does it take to recover?

The patient is required to rest properly and maintain himself or herself in a controlled environment by all means.

The individual has to learn to stay without drugs or alcohol. Dependency on the same cannot be repeated and it would be advisable to stay away from substance abuse in the first place.

Constant follow-ups with the doctor should be maintained by the patient to keep himself or herself in check and note the pace of progress.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

It takes about a month or two to recover from withdrawal symptoms.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

In India, the price for treatment of withdrawal symptoms range from Rs. 500 to Rs, 2, 500 depending upon the severity of the issue.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

The results of the treatment are not permanent as these symptoms can arise again, in contact with the drugs.

Safety: Condition Effectiveness: High Timeliness: Medium Relative Risk: Low Side Effects: Low Time For Recovery: Medium Price Range:

Rs. 500 - Rs. 2,500.

All You Need To Know About Epilepsy

All You Need To Know About Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.

Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain tumours, injury, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.

Internet Addiction: The New Mental Health Disorder?

Internet Addiction: The New Mental Health Disorder?

Introduction

"Get off the mobile and go outside" - are these words being heard more commonly nowadays than at any point in time before? Humanity has just stepped into one of the newest psychiatric disorders. What is worse is that the medical world is divided on whether this should be considered as a disorder, or simply be passed off as a generation gap. Let us look a little deeper about the disorder.

What is internet addiction?

Only recently did Internet addiction and phone addiction became a part of the diagnostic and statistical manual of the mental disorders i.e. Internet addiction is now effectively considered a psychiatric disorder, and there are chances of identifying and treating it using medically approved means. As the name suggests, internet addiction and phone addiction means that the person is using his creative and designated time on a medium when he is no longer required to. Simply put, it becomes an obsessive habit on part of the person to look into his/her phone and use the internet as a routine activity. Long term addiction can lead to many psychological factors such as withdrawal symptoms, depression, and general loss of awareness about the surroundings. For most people, the syndrome can be an underlying factor of an even more severe health condition that the person is trying to mask by whiling away his/her time on the internet and mobile.

Addiction in today’s world 

As of now, only two countries, South Korea and China have identified the disorder, and treatments are administered. Europe and the United States have also categorised it as a disorder, and research is being done on it. The general treatment plan that exists presently, aims to understand the patient first. The psychiatric treatment tries to successfully bridge the user and his/her addiction. From practicing different times of using the internet, to suggesting new schedules and goals, the person can be slowly be eased back into society. The purpose of psychiatric intervention is not to block the internet/ mobile usage completely, but to limit it. A person is educated to get his satisfaction in other forms, like relationships, outdoor activities.

Medical Possibilities

Though still in its early stages, the medical world has made it clear that its contribution towards these mental addictions would increase many fold in the very near future.

Treat Children With ADHD - 5 Best Homeopathic Remedies!

Parents get very concerned when they are just not able to hold their child’s attention who is restless, hyperactive, anxious, highly energetic, and never attentive. For some, this could initially be an exciting phase but can be an indication of some serious underlying disorder too.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or hyperactive disorder or ADHD as it is commonly known is a group of symptoms including behavioural, mood, cognitive, and learning disabilities with a lot of aggression, irritability, excitability, forgetfulness, restlessness, reduced attention span, etc. in these children. Listed below are the common symptoms, which are almost diagnostic of ADHD are:

The impact is felt across all spheres of life including home, academics, school life, and in relationships with friends.

  1. Usually seen in children before the age of 7.
  2. With very short attention spans, the child constantly looks for something to do and be engaged.
  3. Very easy to get distracted even when engaged, the child is very restless.
  4. Sleep disorders.
  5.  With constantly being on the toes, the child feels tired and lethargic.
  6. Difficulty prioritising and frequent procrastination.
  7. They forget things quite easily and would ask for help with coordinating movements.
  8. Rare, but some children can have learning disabilities like dyslexia, but their intelligence levels are not affected.
  9. Disorganisation, leading to poor motor coordination and impaired movements.
  10. Difficulties with fine motor and cognitive skills may cause delay in engagement in sports.

Causes

  • Diet changes with rise in processed foods and sugary diet.

  • Increased time spent with electronic devices.

Homoeopathy has an effective cure for ADHD as it looks at the child holistically and proposes remedies. Homeopathic constitutional treatment provides an effective solution for adhd. Some common remedies are listed below. A word of caution though never self-medicate using these. ADHD is a complex condition and should be assessed completely before initiating treatment.

  1. Tarentula Hispana: Most commonly used in treating idiosyncrasies. The child is hyperactive, compulsive, restless, constantly moving, and has difficult being in one place, can be violent and destructive. Strange, but they have a strong liking to music.
  2. Stramonium: When the child is fearful or aggressive or withdrawn (usually due to a traumatic event), they tend to seek attention and this is then used.

Dear user, Nervousness or Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I had marijuana for 3 months. And I smoked in large quantity. Its been 2,3 months. And I still feel few withdrawal symptoms. Like body tremors, shaking, lazy, tired very soon, unable to concentrate, bad dreams and weakness too? Is there something to worry. Or else do I have to take any tests? Like cancer?

M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Hello, If you suddenly stop marijuana without consult with doctors all symptoms are common to occurs. You can do one thing gradually you reduce amount and frequency of smoking. You will notice that your difficulty level will less compare to sudden stop marijuana. Another thing is when you stop marijuana you feel high desire to take and will be unable to control yourself. So I'm sharing craving management techniques which will be help to control your desire. You have to remember 4 D's: 1.Drink a glass of water 2. Distract your thoughts 3.Deep breathing and 4. Delay.

I quit smoking 2.5 months back and alcohol 2 months back. I had been a very heavy and daily user of both for many years. For the first month although the cravings were intense I did not have any other major problems. But off late I cannot concentrate on anything and cannot get any sleep either. There are days when I do not do anything at all due to my absolute inability to hold a single thought in my head. I obsessively keep thinking about pointless issues throughout the day. I decided that I needed help and visited a doctor who prescribed a Escitalopram and Lopez 2. Now I'm a guy who hates taking medicines in general and especially drugs like Benzos and scars. I stay in Thane and would like to know if there are doctors who can treat me using a combination of diet, exercise, behavioral therapy, meditation/yoga/mindfulness, tackling fear, or any other intervention. My motivation is extremely high to improve and cure myself, and I can push my mind and body to its limits to achieve this. The problem is doctors are not willing to take that path or give me a chance to do it without drugs.

Symptoms of Autism
Here are some symptoms of autism in children

Symptoms of Autism
Hi! Good morning! This is Dr. Rakesh Jain. I m a Pediatric Neurologist working at Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon.
Today, I m going to talk briefly about autism which is very commonly seen nowadays, in children. I would like to tell you what are the common symptoms and how would you identify autism in the early childhood.
A child at the age of one year who doesn t do finger pointing, who doesn t have good eye contact, doesn t start uttering a single word, doesn t have a joint attention or there are some other concern like child doesn t mix up with the children of his own age, then, you must suspect either, there is some problem in hearing and accordingly you should go to a pediatrician to get him checked.

So, first of all, pediatrician would ask you to do a hearing test. If the hearing test is normal, then, we must think about the diagnosis of autism. It is called autistic spectrum disorder. It could be mild, moderate, severe. It may be associated with some other problems like some behavior problems, hyperactivity, poor attention, poor memory, epilepsy, so on and so forth. So, it is really important to diagnose this disorder as early as we can so that we can identify the cause of it and we can try to mend it accordingly.

And, there is no cure as such for autism. That s the scary thing that there is no cure but having diagnosed it properly, early in life, we could do so many things, lots of therapies, for example, occupational therapy, speech therapy, sensory integration, psychological support and there are some medication as well to help with the comorbidities, not to treat the disorder as a core treatment .

If you want to know any further about it, and if your child is having any of the symptoms please, do contact your local pediatrician for basic screening and if you want to reach me, you could either visit me or you could connect me through Lybrate.
Thank you very much for your kind attention!

Stroke: Causes, Symptoms

Hi this is Dr. Amit. I am MPT in neuro. I have my clinic physio-health plus. So today I am going to discuss about Stroke. Today, these days the stroke patients are more common. For stroke what is the main cause, is stress. Because of hypertension patients got stroke. They have blood clot in their brain. It closes the blood brain barrier and reach to the brain and they damage the part of the brain. So most of the people get paralysis attacks, right hemi, left hemi, and for these patients we have a complete rehabilitation center here.

So for the hand rehabilitation, leg is recovered earlier and arm is not recovered. Because the main reason for that why arm is not recovering? Because we people, the patient mostly, they are not using their arm while working. They just concentrate on their working. The first need of the patient is the working. They need to go to the bathroom, they need to go to the other area, and they need to work first, then everybody is going working on the arm rehabilitation. So what are the limitations on the arm? There is an internal rotation of the shoulder, flexion of the elbow, the wrist is going in the flexion, so need to correct that posture. So if the patient is not first involved in the movement we won t get any better treatment. So first of all the patient should need to involve in the treatment, involve in the therapy then only we can cure that. So first of all there is a movement of the shoulder. Shoulder movements? What are the lacking movements?

There is shoulder flexion first of all. There is lack of shoulder flexion in the movement. The patient, if we ask the patient to flex the shoulder they will raise outside. There is more abduction on the shoulder. Second is elbow extension. So elbow extension won t be there. Most of the cases there are elbow extension but mostly their elbow is in the flexion portion. Then wrist extension is lacking, finger extension is lacking and thumb abduction is lacking. So we are working on these movements only. There are some misconceptions that the patients of hemi they are not recovered mainly the arm is not recovered completely. But it is not like that, so we can recover the patient with the arm, hand rehabilitation also, we are working on that.

So please contact me on lybrate.com. You can contact at any time.

Isme hum mareez ko sikhate hai ke apne aap ko aaram kaise karna, relax kaise karna, aur nakaraatma bhav aur vichaar se kaise chutkara paana chahiye.

Isme hum pehle mareez ko kehte hai ke negative thoughts ko pehchaane yaani aware rahe, unko challenge kare, aur nakaraatma vichaar ko hata ke positive feelings, positive thoughts, positive emotions kaise generate karne hai. Ye sab hum aapko monochikitsa ke dauraan sikhaate hai. Jisme pehle kuch haft eek se do sitting ya kabhi kabhi teen sittinh bhi lete hai. Jaise jaise aap in cheezon ka abhyas karege aapki dawai ki maatra aur dawai ki doses ko kam karte jaate hai.
