Hi, I'm a acute transient psychosis patient diagnosed at the age of 14. Initially my dosage was very high now im 25 years old consuming 500 mg Divalporate and 50 mg Quitapin plain. Im good when I do not have any relapses and very effective. I completed B. Tech Mechanical with 60 % and got placed in a company as well. Right now im doing software courses. I have few questions: 1 .When I will get rid of my medicine? 2. With these dosage if I can act like a average person so I wonder if im not consuming these medicines I will be more effective with work as well as studies but my relapse will happen in a year or sometime after 2 years. So, is there any alternative for these medicines? 3. I visited many doctors, some say you are suffering from psychosis disorder, some say bipolar or schizophrenia, some say sleeping problems. Why this many doubts in my case. So, what exactly im suffering from? Though I consumed many dosages initially but when I was reviewed with a doctor (Psychiatrist) He advised me the doctors are giving high dosage it can be reduced to minimum. Since then im in contact with that doctor and that is how my dosage is reduced but I want to know whether it can reduced or is there any need of these medicines. I suffer from relapses in a year, sometime 2 years. I will appreciate if any psychiatrist clears my doubts. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, Whether you have transient psychosis or bipolar or schizophrenia or sleeping problem, it is for the psychiatrist to diagnose and treat you properly. With this dose you are without relapse and acting like average person. Why do you want to lose those effects of drugs. Bipolar disorder is a relapsing disorder - sometimes with high overconfident mood sometimes with low self esteem sad mood. Both will be kept under control with valproate and quetiapine. During active phase you may need different dose and during normal maintenance phase you will need different dose. Leave the dose decision to the doctor. Each relapse at this age will stagnate your future - mania because you will lose your name, fame and money - depression you will your energy, interest and may lose life by suicide. Why do you want to have relapses? Continue valproate and quetiapine as prescribed.

You must immediately seek help from a counselor. Your gear is creating an obsession and that will gradually lead to anxiety and compulsive behaviors. Before it gets out of control and difficult to deal with seek help earlier, especially about this fear. If the fear is of recent origin, you could perhaps identify it and deal with it. But if it is from a long past, then much work has to be done to sort that out. If medication is required please cooperate with both the therapies to get the best results. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again.

You must check out the leg pains with a doctor, immediately. Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night���s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don���t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I feel pain sometimes under my left arm rib. I do smoke sometimes. I am 33 years old.
Depending on the extent of the smoking you need to visit a cardiologist, just to rule out any effect of the smoking. Then if any tests are required that will also help pin-point the problem and cause.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Certain antidepressants can help prevent anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks, but are not used for immediate relief during an attack. Frequently used antidepressants are the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, and Zoloft.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help

You seem to have gone through a lot and still managed to do well for yourself. If you wanted to leave your brother and still maintain relationship, then you could have done it without the condition of him improving his behavior with you. Now he's probably feeling guilty as well as upset with you for wanting to change him. If you want to leave, then you leave citing reasons which are about you and not about him. Take responsibility for your decisions and then decide and leave. Also you must weigh your pros and cons of leaving the safety of your brothers house. You must think about your safety, finances etc before leaving his house. If you feel confident on these fronts then go ahead and leave. But the responsibility of your actions shouldn't come on your brother. You can still do well in studies if you live with your brother. It's in your hands. If you let it affect you. It will affect you. There is no guarantee that you will not face negativity somewhere else. It's all in the mind. Some people have done very well while living in very negative environment.

Impact of Stress on our health

Mera naam Dr. B S Arora hai. Mai peshe se ek manochikitsak hoon. Kya aap apni Zindagi Tanav Mukt Jeena Chahte Hain? Kya aap Chahte Hain ki aap ke Jeevan Mein Koi Tanav Na Ho? Agar aap ka Uttar haan me Hai To Mujhe Gaur Se suniye. Aaj Mai aap se Tanav aur Tanav se Mukti ke upaay ke baare mein sankshipt vartalap karunga. Pehle tanav Kya Hota Hai? Tanav ke kya Karan Hote Hain? Tanav Mujhe Kaise prabhavit karta hai aur Tanav ki avastha kya hoti hai? Aur fir mai aap ko bataunga Tanav Mukti ke upay. Pehla toh tanav Kahin Bhi, Kisi Ko Bhi, Kabhi Bhi Prabhavit kar sakta hai. Tanav Zindagi Ki Ek Sacchai hai. Tanav ka Sahi Prabhadhan hi ek upaay hai.

Pehla tanav Hota kya hai? Ek avastha Hai jis mein kisi kaaran se mera Shaareerik, Mera maansik Mera Bhavnatmak santolan Bigad jaata hai. Yeh Karan antrik bhi ho sakte hain aur Bahri bhi ho sakte hain. Ye vastavik bhi ho sakte hai ya Kalpanik bhi ho sakte hain. Tanav ko do bhago Me Baanta Gaya Hai 1 positive or negative. Jaise aap apni Pariksha ke liye taiyari karte hai, agar tanav na ho to aap apni Pariksha ki taiyari nahi kar Payenge. Isliye Hum usko kehte hain positive tanav, Ek positive tension. Ab humein dekhna chahiye ki tanav ki avastha kya kya hai. Tanav ki teen avastha hoti hai. Jaise ki hum Apne Jeevan Kaal Ke Andar 3 Kaal Se Guzarte Hain - balyavastha, Yuva avastha aur vridhavastha.

Tanav ki bhi theek 3 Avasthaayein hoti hai. Pehli stage Hoti Hai alarming stage, 2nd Stage hoti hai stage of resistance and Third stage hoti hai stage of exhaustion. Jab Ek vaigyanik addhyyan kia gaya Pata Laga ki Hamare Tanav Ke Karan alag alag ho sakte hain lekin Hum usko Jis Tarah se pratikriya karte hai uska 1 definite pattern hai Jisko Hum Log Kehte Hai generalized adaptation system. Ye ek jatil prakriya hai. Mainw uska Ek thoda sa sarili Karan aap logo ke liye Kiya Hai. Ab Hum Chalte Hain Tanav ke kya kya Karan ho sakte hain. Pehla Karan Ghar Mein Kisi ki mrityu ho jana. Kisika ghar mein janam lena. Kisi Ko Kisi ke ghar mein Achanak aapka financial status ya Naukri ka chhoot Jaana. Ya phir ek samay nirdharit k andar aapka Karya ko karna.

Tanav ke aur bhi Karan ho sakte hain jaise aapka traffic me fas Jana, Pariksha ka nazdeek Aa Jana aur ek pariwarik Kalah jisske anar Divorce Bhi Ek pramukh Tanav ka Karan Hota Hai. Ab Hum Chalte Hain Tanav ke baare mein Humne Charcha kar li. Tanav ke Karan, tanav ki avasthayein. Ab baat karenge tanav Hame Kaise prabhavit karta hai. Hum Shareerik taur pe baat kare to Tanav Hame Rakta Chap yani hypertension, BP Ka mareez Bana sakta hai. Humko Heart Attack De sakta hai. Agar ye tanav accumulated hokar daily Jo Hamare tanav hai Aage chal kar Hame hriday Rog se bhi Prabhavit kar sakta hain. Tanav Hume anxiety, depression, psychosis Ka mareez Bhi Bana sakta hai. Agar tanav bahut jyada ho To kitne log Tanav se prabhavit hokar aatmhatya Tak kar lete hai. Abhi jo vaigyanik addhyyan Huye hai usse ye Pata Chala Hai ki Bada Tanav ek ho toh itna prabhavit nahi karta Magar Chote Chote Kah tanav Hame Jyada prabhavit karte hai. Aur Ek Aur tathya nikla hai. Cancer of tanav. Jo log bahut sara tanav lete hain unke andar Yeh Pata Chala Hai cancer hone ke Pravarti bad rahi hai. Ab mai aap ko Tanav Nivaran or tanav ka prabhandhan Hum Kaise Kare.

Agar Aap iske baare mein mujhse koi sujhaav ya mujhse koi suggestion chahte ho toh aap lybrate ke through Mujhse Sampark kar sakte hain.

Dear lybrate-user, you are dependent on alcohol. Alcohol is a ready made sugar/glucose, fully digested. It will difficult for you to control your blood sugar level if you continue drinking. Cholesterol is produced in the body by liver. Probably your liver is damaged causing cholesterol problems. High creatinine level shows your kidneys are under protest. They may give up if you don't get treated. It is better for you to give up alcohol completely. It can not be done by yourself at home. It will have withdrawal symptoms which needs treatment in a hospital for at least 10-14 days. During detoxification itself your sugar, cholesterol and kidneys can be repaired with appropriate drips and tablets. You are still young. I think your children may be still dependent on you. Probably your parents may not be able to support. So there is an urgent need for you give up alcohol in a hospital and get treated for other medical problems. All the best.

My baby boy is 2.7 years old but not speaking as other babies in his age group. He talks in his own language and communicate by sign/signals. He also does not chew food and having difficulty to sallow it, I need to give him semi solid food or need to blend it, otherwise he will vomit it. I consulted my baby's pediatrician (and few more doctors) and he said its normal and asked to wait till 5 years. Please suggest me the solution for the both. For speech, should I consult a speech therapist?

Pediatrician, Pune
if he can hear well , speech will develop in due course of time , try to interact with the child as much as possible along with playful activity , can give him regular food made at home for everybody , no need to give semisolid food , though initially you may have some difficulty , let the child feed himself , don't try to spoonfeed yourself , he will enjoy the food as play and finally put it in his mouth by himself
