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

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.

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorders are brain disorders that cause changes in a person’s mood, energy and ability to function. Bipolar disorder is a category that includes three different conditions — bipolar I, bipolar II and cyclothymic disorder.
People with bipolar disorders have extreme and intense emotional states that occur at distinct times, called mood episodes. These mood episodes are categorized as manic, hypomanic or depressive. People with bipolar disorders generally have periods of normal mood as well. Bipolar disorders can be treated, and people with these illnesses can lead full and productive lives.

Types:

There are three main types of bipolar disorder: bipolar I, bipolar II, and cyclothymia.

-Bipolar I:
Bipolar I is defined by the appearance of at least one manic episode. You may experience hypomanic or major depressive episodes before and after the manic episode. This type of bipolar disorder affects men and women equally.

-Bipolar II:
People with this type of bipolar disorder experience one major depressive episode that lasts at least two weeks. They also have at least one hypomanic episode that lasts about four days. This type of bipolar disorder is thought to be more common in women.

-Cyclothymia:
People with cyclothymia have episodes of hypomania and depression. These symptoms are shorter and less severe than the mania and depression caused by bipolar I or bipolar II disorder. Most people with this condition only experience a month or two at a time where their moods are stable.

Symptoms:
Bipolar symptom in women:


Men and women are diagnosed with bipolar disorder in equal numbers. However, the main symptoms of the disorder may be different between the two genders. In many cases, a woman with bipolar disorder may:

  • be diagnosed later in life, in her 20s or 30s

  • have milder episodes of mania

  • experience more depressive episodes than manic episodes

  • have four or more episodes of mania and depression in a year, which is called rapid cycling

  • experience other conditions at the same time, including thyroid disease, obesity, anxiety disorders, and migraines

  • have a higher lifetime risk of alcohol use disorder

  • Women with bipolar disorder may also relapse more often. This is believed to be caused by hormonal changes related to menstruation, pregnancy, or menopause. If you’re a woman and think you may have bipolar disorder, it’s important for you to get the facts. Here’s what you need to know about bipolar disorder in women.

Bipolar system in men:
Men and women both experience common symptoms of bipolar disorder. However, men may experience symptoms differently than women. Men with bipolar disorder may:

  • be diagnosed earlier in life

  • experience more severe episodes, especially manic episodes

  • have substance abuse issues

  • act out during manic episodes

  • Men with bipolar disorder are less likely than women to seek medical care on their own. They’re also more likely to die by suicide.

Bipolar disorder in children:

Diagnosing bipolar disorder in children is controversial. This is largely because children don’t always display the same bipolar symptoms as adults. Their moods and behaviors may also not follow the standards doctors use to diagnose the disorder in adults.

Many bipolar symptoms that occur in children also overlap with symptoms from a range of other disorders that can occur in children, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

However, in the last few decades, doctors and mental health professionals have come to recognize the condition in children. A diagnosis can help children get treatment, but reaching a diagnosis may take many weeks or months. Your child may need to seek special care from a professional trained to treat children with mental health issues.

Like adults, children with bipolar disorder experience episodes of elevated mood. They can appear very happy and show signs of excitable behavior. These periods are then followed by depression. While all children experience mood changes, changes caused by bipolar disorder are very pronounced. They’re also usually more extreme than a child’s typical mood swing.

Manic symptoms in children
Symptoms of a child’s manic episode caused by bipolar disorder can include:

-acting very silly and feeling overly happy
-talking fast and rapidly changing subjects
-having trouble focusing or concentrating
-doing risky things or experimenting with risky behaviors
-having a very short temper that leads quickly to outbursts of anger
-having trouble sleeping and not feeling tired after sleep loss
-Depressive symptoms in children

-Symptoms of a child’s depressive episode caused by bipolar disorder can include:

-moping around or acting very sad
-sleeping too much or too little
-having little energy for normal activities or showing no signs of interest in anything
-complaining about not feeling well, including having frequent headaches or stomachaches
-experiencing feelings of worthlessness or guilt
-eating too little or too much
-thinking about death and possibly suicide
-Other possible diagnoses
Some of the behavior issues you may witness in your child could be the result of another condition. ADHD and other behavior disorders can occur in children with bipolar disorder. Work with your child’s doctor to document your child’s unusual behaviors, which will help lead to a diagnosis.

Bipolar disorder in teens:

Angst-filled behavior is nothing new to the average parent of a teenager. The shifts in hormones, plus the life changes that come with puberty, can make even the most well-behaved teen seem a little upset or overly emotional from time to time. However, some teenage mood swings may be the result of a more serious condition, such as bipolar disorder.

A bipolar disorder diagnosis is most common during the late teens and early adult years. For teenagers, the more common symptoms of a manic episode include:

-being very happy
-“acting out” or misbehaving
-taking part in risky behaviors
-abusing substances
-thinking about sex more than usual
-becoming overly sexual or sexually active
-having trouble sleeping but not showing signs of fatigue or being tired
-having a very short temper
-having trouble staying focused, or being easily distracted

-For teenagers, the more common symptoms of a depressive episode include:

-sleeping a lot or too little
-eating too much or too little
-feeling very sad and showing little excitability
-withdrawing from activities and friends
-thinking about death and suicide
-Diagnosing and treating bipolar disorder can help teens live a healthy life. Learn more about bipolar disorder in teenagers and how to treat it.

Bipolar and depression:

Bipolar disorder can have two extremes: up and down. To be diagnosed with bipolar, you must experience a period of mania or hypomania. People generally feel “up” in this phase of the disorder. When you’re experiencing an “up” mood swing, you may feel highly energized and be easily excitable.

Some people with bipolar disorder will also experience a major depressive episode, or a “down” mood. When you’re experiencing a “down” mood swing, you may feel lethargic, unmotivated, and sad. However, not all people with bipolar disorder who have this symptom feel “down” enough to be labeled depressed. For instance, for some people, once their mania is treated, a normal mood may feel like depression because they enjoyed the “high” caused by the manic episode.

While bipolar disorder can cause you to feel depressed, it’s not the same as the condition called depression. Bipolar disorder can cause highs and lows, but depression causes moods and emotions that are always “down.” Discover the differences between bipolar disorder and depression.

Causes:

Bipolar disorder is a common mental health disorder, but it’s a bit of a mystery to doctors and researchers. It’s not yet clear what causes some people to develop the condition and not others.

Possible causes of bipolar disorder include:

-Genetics- 
If your parent or sibling has bipolar disorder, you’re more likely than other people to develop the condition (see below). However, it’s important to keep in mind that most people who have bipolar disorder in their family history don’t develop it.

-Your brain-  
Your brain structure may impact your risk for the disease. Abnormalities in the structure or functions of your brain may increase your risk.

Diagnosis:

  • A diagnosis of bipolar disorder I involves either one or more manic episodes, or mixed (manic and depressive) episodes. It may also include a major depressive episode, but it may not. A diagnosis of bipolar II involves one or more major depressive episodes and at least one episode of hypomania.

  • To be diagnosed with a manic episode, you must experience symptoms that last for at least one week or that cause you to be hospitalized. You must experience symptoms almost all day every day during this time. Major depressive episodes, on the other hand, must last for at least two weeks.

  • Bipolar disorder can be difficult to diagnose because mood swings can vary. It’s even harder to diagnose in children and adolescents. This age group often has greater changes in mood, behavior, and energy levels.

  • Bipolar disorder often gets worse if it’s left untreated. Episodes may happen more often or become more extreme. But if you receive treatment for your bipolar disorder, it’s possible for you to lead a healthy and productive life. Therefore, diagnosis is very important. See how bipolar disorder is diagnosed.

Role of Homeopathy in Bipolar Disorder:

The first step in our treatment method involves the use of homeopathy. Homeopathy is a system of medicine which stimulates the body to heal itself. When homeopathic medicines are prescribed properly, they work quickly to alleviate symptoms and improve overall health.

Natural remedies for bipolar disorder:

Some natural remedies may be helpful for bipolar disorder. However, it’s important not to use these remedies without first talking with your doctor. These treatments could interfere with medications you’re taking.

The following herbs and supplements may help stabilize your mood and relieve symptoms of bipolar disorder:

1. Fish oil. A 2013 study shows that people who consume a lot of fish and fish oil are less likely to develop bipolar disease. You can eat more fish to get the oil naturally, or you can take an over-the-counter (OTC) supplement.
2. Rhodiola rosea. This research also shows that this plant may be a helpful treatment for moderate depression. It may help treat depressive symptoms of bipolar disorder.
3. S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). SAMe is an amino acid supplement. The research shows it can ease symptoms of major depression and other mood disorders.

Several other minerals and vitamins may also reduce symptoms of bipolar disorder.

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.
  • Social changes like nuclear families, single parents, lack of siblings, etc.
  • 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.
  3. Hyoscyamus Niger: Used in children who present with manic or sexualised symptoms.

Homeopathy is used in ADHD where symptoms are across the spectrum - hyperactive to complete withdrawal, completely based on symptoms and psychotherapy plays an important role in treatment through behaviour modification techniques like CBT.

Stopped taking Anti Depressants and Pain Killers for Head Aches after a prolonged use as it was not doing any good and going off was not aggravating the conditions. Safeguarding the kidneys and other organs from side effects. Now getting head aches more frequently and regular meditations and stretching exercises are not helping. Noticing weight increase to 74 Kg as well. Wonder if I should go back on any of those aborted treatment?

MBBS, DPM

Dear Joginder, i don't know what are those aborted treatment. But avoid pain killers - they damage kidneys. Avoid opiate painkillers like tramadol - you may become dependent on it. Antidepressant is okay - it is better to adjust dose of wellbutrin, instead of a newer one. In diabetics depression is common.

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.

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.
