Olanzepine is not used for depression. Kindly check your diagnosis with your psychiatrist. Even otherwise there are non sedating antidepressants which you can use if indicated.

In the morning when I prepare myself to go to office, my husband tells me about several outside jobs for which I get very disturbed. Sometimes, I scream loudly why he is irritating me with so many words. Kindly enlighten me some way to avoid this type of situation.

It would be great if you could have a dialogue with your husband whenever you two have a light moment. Share him with your discomfort and suggest if you could do the same things in the evening or he can tell you a day before. Sharing your discomfort softly can do a miles in your understanding. Take care.

Smoking a cigarette is dangerous? Or smoking a weed is dangerous? What will be the side effect if we use these two products? How can we prevent the side effects of these 2 products.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Both are very dangerous. Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong willpower and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

3 Ways Parents Can Manage Exam Stress

3 Ways Parents Can Manage Exam Stress

"Adolescence is the age at which children stop asking questions because they know all the answers. "

It's exam time. There are some lucky parents who enjoy these times. I said ‘some'. For the rest of us, exam times are a source of anxiety and worries. Everyone relates to exams with anxiousness, stress etc... The only person who may be relaxing is the one who set the papers. Children are running like chickens from xerox centers to the stationary shops. From tutorials to friends. Every ping on Whats-app gives a different reaction. 

Good, bad or ugly. Reactions are uncertain. The largest anxious & worried audience is parents. Some hide their worry with smiling face. Some are anxious because their child is not even aware of his timetable. Some are shouting and some overwhelmed. 

So what does a parent need to do? There are two extreme spectrum in which parents behave. Either they are too involved or they don’t care about it and take themselves out of the picture. The best way to go is moderation. There are different ways in which parents can manage stress. Is stress, bad? No. Certain amount of stress is necessary. But we cannot be so stressed that we are not able to manage the situation in itself. So here are some offbeat look at what can be our action plan. 

1. Expectation handling.

This is the biggest challenge parents face. No matter how evolved are the parents (or for that matter

human beings) they have expectations. Even if we tell ourselves and others that we have lesser expectations than the Buddha. The fact is we are stuck. Let's face it. There is no way we can get out of the expectation cycle. But one thing we can do is manage them and keep them rational. What are rational expectations? They are realistic.They are logical. They are helpful. Many parents expect that the child should sit in one place for long hours. If children don't, parents keep on blabbering about how they don't care about exams.  

"Expectation is the mother of all frustration." Antonio Banderas

Also, there is another extreme parent. These Parents takes too much of care and pamper. Even that can trigger stress contributing thoughts. I knew a parent who took a year off from work for her son’s Tenth exam. 

So should we stop expecting? No. Even if you want you can't. Keep the expectations rational. See if they are logical. Check if they are realistic and true. And most important check the impact. Are these expectations helping you? If they are not give up some of them. Expectation handling gets better with stories, remind your self of Aesop. one of his fables is Boy and filberts. 

A Boy put his hand into a jar of Filberts, and grasped as many as his fist could possibly hold. But when he tried to pull it out again, he found he couldn't do so. The neck of the jar was too small to allow of the passage of so large a handful. Unwilling to lose his nuts but unable to withdraw his hand, he burst into tears. A bystander, who saw where the trouble lay, said to him, "Come, my boy, don't be so greedy: be content with half the amount, and you'll be able to get your hand out without difficulty."

2. Don't carry your comparison scale 

Well you cant help it. Parents carry a comparison scale in their mind about how much or how long their child should study. There is no evidence or approval of this scale. It gets created somehow on the basis of your own past or some topper saying how hard he studied. 

“Comparison is the death of joy.”  Mark Twain

Parents have a philosophy that you can't get what you want unless you go through the suffering. Thinking that this will fire them up to study more and work hard, is one big mistake that you are committing. In some cases it may work, but at this rebellious age probability of getting backfired is high. This scale will damage them life long. even when you give up these scales your child carries it. Like we have been carrying the scales parents have given us. 

3. Understand the teen brain.

 

Let me tell you the logic.The logic is teen brain develops in an interesting way. The ability to think about consequences is developing which is the frontal part of the brain. So no matter how much struggle you do many of your pep talks are going to fly off their heads unregistered. "Half baked brain, keep it baking "

“Well, no,” you have to say, “your brain is sometimes an explanation; it’s never an excuse.”  Frances E. Jensen

should be the self chanted mantra for parents. This should be your mantra for next several years unless he/she is 20. As you have already seen that your sermons have little impact on your teen as if you are a preacher in the desert. Your job is simple; see if you are giving him healthy food and a conducive environment. During exam times they may behave odd, you manage this moderate. No extreme reactions. So remind yourself the functioning of the brain & "Half baked brain, keep it baking "

You have to concentrate mind and try natural antidepressant methods and if not useful need medicines .5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session

One senior most doctor found BPD and others take it as RRD. Still have no control over the patient. I am living in a nuclear family with two daughters and a son. No help from family or any close relative, neither have any friendly support just due to neglect. Symptoms of Patient - Crying, sadness, depressed, sometimes get violent, beats family members, doubts on each person, throwing essential items to destroy them in anger. Feeling helpless, left all the hopes to get relieved. Dying seems only solution. Suggest if you have any remedy.

Dear , mental illness like the one you presented is very difficult to diagnose as well as to manage. Doctors approach symptomatically and treatment is with the help of drugs used for many aspects and accompanying therapy methods. You have to accept the reality to get proper treatment for this closest relative. I suggest you to admit her to an mental health facility and provide her with proper treatment and care. They will be able to provide better care. Please do not worry about your love and care. At this moment, providing her with asylum care, will be the best way you your love towards her. Please. Take care.

Hi. My husband consumes alcohol. How can he stop the alcohol. I'm very worried about him.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not state how much alcohol he consumes. Sometimes, rather innocently many wives believe that if a man drinks, he is an alcoholic and label him so. This has often been proved wrong and has also'made' an alcoholic out of one who is not by the mere suggestion and insistence of it. If other things are normal, a man may consume up to two drinks a day and it is perfectly alright. If on the other hand he cannot hold that drink then it is too much for his constitution. The ideal way I look at alcoholism is,'if the drinking is causing a problem to him, his family and friends or his life, then we have a problem. Check n this and visit a rehabilitation center to get good definitions and if it is proved that he is an alcoholic then admit him there. There is a medicine called disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that when you admit him into a de-addiction center that you let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. The consumption of antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end you will succeed. His medical condition warrants a very strict course of action. In case he is not cooperative, then there are some centers that will come and pick him up when he is totally drunk and take him by force. They will however need to get written permission from you and the family.
