Dear user. I can understand. I am really sorry. There are no tonics available to keep your health intact or maintained when you continue taking liquor and cigarettes. 350 ml per day is almost half a bottle or 6 large. This is too much a daily dose. Please quit drinking and smoking. Then we can think about tonics to restore your health. Take care.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated.

5 Myths About Depression Debunked!

5 Myths About Depression Debunked!

Depression is a mental health disorder where one experiences lack of interest in activities and has a continuously depressed mood. This can lead to serious impairments in the daily life of the affected person. Day by day, the number of patients suffering from depression is increasing. More than the facts, it is various myths people hear about depression that make them vulnerable.

Below are the five common myths and facts regarding depression-

Myth #1: Lazy people suffer from depression
People who have a lethargic life suffer from depression and hardworking people never experience it. This is probably one of the most widely believed myths about depression. However, in reality, it is excessive work pressure, overwork, the feeling of being bound with responsibilities and being exploited at the workplace that causes depression. Anyone can develop this mental condition, and workload and lifestyle do not always have something to do with depression.

Myth #2: Women are the main victims of depression
Another popular myth regarding depression is that it is women who mainly suffer from it. Yes, it is true that women are more sensitive than men, but developing depression has nothing to do with gender. Anyone, at any age, at any time, can suffer from depression.

Myth #3: Talking can never help in easing depression
There are some people who believe that depression is a mental health disorder. It is only treated with psychiatric medicines that can help in dealing with this condition. However, what they don't understand is that doing something constructive and having positive conversations with their loved ones can actually benefit their mental health. Even psychiatrists believe that talking sessions are one of the ways of treating depression.

Myth #4: Depression is the same as sadness
People who are constantly unhappy are often considered as being depressed. However, the fact is that sadness and depression are two different things. While one can get over the former condition of feeling low and sad, suffering from depression leads to chemical changes inside the brain, causing changes in the behaviour, thinking, etc. of the affected person, thereby persistently damaging one’s life.

Myth #5: There’s no link between depression and physical exercise
Many people assume that physical exercise isn't helpful in dealing with depression since it's a mental illness and not a physical condition. However, the fact is that moderate amount of physical exercise not only helps in improving mental traits but also boosts the concentration power of the person, while preventing lethargy.

No matter how mild or serious the form of depression one suffers from, opting for psychiatric help becomes crucial to avoid risks of deterioration of the condition in any way. After all, a professional psychiatrist can not only help one suffering from depression by treating them with necessary medications and therapies but also help in differentiating the facts from the myths thoroughly.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from bipolar disorder and I am taking medicines from 3.5. Years continuously. Earlier it was treated as only depression because my psychiatric did not examined that. I judged by myself that I am suffering from bipolar disorder and told the doctor. I am taking medicines of bipolar disorder from 5 months but I am not satisfied with it. But the doctor is best as of my reach in the 150 km radius circle or zone. As I describe my symptoms to doctor he adds tablets in every visit. He does not discuss about the disease and I am always curious to know about my medicines and about disease. I am loosing hope and feeling helpless. What can I do in these conditions? Can I live a normal life? For how much time I have to take medicines?

Bipolar disorder is a type of mental disorder, characterized by fluctuation of mood, energy & activity levels that affects a person’s normal day to day functioning. It is an episodic illness where the affected person gets cycles of elevated mood termed mania or hypomania & low mood termed depression. That you were treated for depression initially indicate the possibility of your initial episodes being depressive episodes. If you doubt your diagnosis & treatment, you may take a second opinion of another Psychiatrist & get yourself re-evaluated. Treatment is long term for this condition. There are various medicines available for this disorder along with psychotherapy. It is very necessary that you adhere to treatment & stay under regular supervision of your doctor, as treatment will be modified from time to time based on your state. Do not stop treatment on your own without advice from your attending doctor. & if you have any query regarding your symptoms or treatment, talk openly with your doctor. You can definitely lead a normal life. Take the following measures along with taking medicines regularly & in time: •Educate yourself adequately about the illness: its coarse, symptoms, treatment, also regarding the various myths associated with this type of illness. Understand the illness properly. •Accept the fact that the illness is in you, & try to keep it under control by following your doctor’s advice. •Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. Eat healthy diet. •Lead an active life & follow a daily routine.
