I've been suffering from depression since a long time. I take Tab. Serta 100 mg/day. Despite that, my depressive feelings have not subsided. I consulted my doctor and he said that the medicines have to be continued for some more time. Is there any alternative?

If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

Quitting profession is not possible for all. You can take few sips of warm water in between, do not modify your voice much, speak less with sufficient intervals of voice rest in between. Steam inhalation after reaching home. Avoid chalk dust to peevent allergy. Do not consume chilled drinks on dry painful throat tat is due to voice abuse or overuse. Strict diet habbits too maintain your vocal hygiene.

Dear Madam, thank you for writing in. Please meet a psychiatrist at the earliest. Even if the depression is due to life condition and the life condition does not change, still, treatment of depression can make a world of change. Some of the things that you can do at home are: Start a regular exercise program; eat and sleep at regular times, go out and meet people even if you don't feel like; practice yoga and meditation; spend time on your earlier hobbies even if initially you don't feel like doing so. These suggestions might seem simple, but trust me, they will make a huge difference if you implement them regularly and whole-heartedly. Also get a general health check up done because stress of this kind can often worsen existing or precipitate new medical conditions. Also, pre-existing medical conditions can induce depression in this manner. Take care!

What kind of medical test should I go through to detect depression in side my body.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What kind of medical test should I go through to detect depression in side my body.
No medical test can diagnose depression and it is diagnosed form histoory taking and symptoms.•All depressed patients must be enquired specifically about suicidal ideations. •Suicidal ideation is a medical emergency •Risk factors for suicide are psychiatric known disorders, medical illness, prior history of suicidal attempts or family history of attempted suicide. •The demographic reasons include older age, male gender, marital status (widowed or separated) and living alone. 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. And if these are not useful you need antidepressants 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 It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Were your wife disappointed in the near past? please understand, it is our duty to diagnose depression and other mental disorders. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you diagnose your wife and provide further methods of treatment. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. I went through the details. The symptoms you are mentioning here are due to social anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder. You don't have to control your mind. In the meantime you should tryto diverse your mind from the present worry. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with the help of psychotherapy, counseling and life style changes. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

Sir, My elder daughter, age 24 years is a patient of schizophrenia and is under treatment at PGI Chandigarh for the last 10 years. Presently she takes clozapine 200 mg single dose daily. Her problem is somewhat controlled but not totally cured. My younger son aged 17 years ,who is presently studying in class 12th (Non Medical stream) is quite intelligent and is presently taking coaching for Joint Entrance Exam of Engineering stream. His problem is that while he is quite at ease with Maths and Physics, he does not fare well in Chemistry. In weekly coaching/school test he does not fare well in Chemistry. Whenever, his results are out he is quite upset and gives up studying other subjects also. He does not want to go school/coaching institution and quarrels with his mother. When scolded for this, he becomes abusive and makes illogical arguments. However, after some time all is normal and he agrees to go to school/coaching institution . He does perform well in studies but again he is not consistent with his studies for the reasons mentioned above. Sometimes he is so optimistic that he he boasts of cracking IIT exam. But gives up easily when confronted with non performance. His lifestyle is somewhat similar. Sometimes, he cares well for his outlook, dress etc. But on another occasion, he does not care about his personal hygiene also. This issue was also discussed by me with Consular of my daughter at PGI Chandigarh, who asked me to bring my son for check up as soon as it is possible, but the problem is that my wife differs with me and says that our son has no psychiatry problem and it is just a behavioral problem and that would subside with the passage of time. She also fears that taking our son to PGI Chandigarh would make him dependent on medicines (with side effects) life long , as is the case with our elder daughter. Here in this context, I would request you to kindly advise me the right course. Thanking you.

The counselor could be right for some reasons and your wife could be right for other reasons. The timing of the problem your son manifests is very significant and something has to be done. The reason I say this is that he is in his late teens and this is the last time his issues will come up looking for a resolution goaded by hormonal imbalances, particularly testosterone. If you do not take care of it now, he will have permanent negative features and those will grow over time and will become serious if he is under any stress. He seems to be stress-prone already. The other problem is that he carries the same genes as his sister, and may be prone to schizophrenia if he lives under duress. His weakness in chemistry may be because of the impending inherited problem pushing to come out or he may have a mental block against chemistry that keeps him under stress. His mental swings from high confidence to low and anger outbursts can be quite indicative of impending problems. The best thing to do under these circumstances is to talk to him and warn him and see if he is amenable to meeting with the counselor and under his consent a lot of possibilities will open up. Perhaps you can take your wife to the counselor to let that person do some convincing for her too. The problem is that once your son has a breakdown, he would have activated the chemical, electrical and neurological pathways for a pathological condition. Then it will become curative work. Whereas what I am suggesting is that, if we are lucky, we could intervene now and bring about a preventive approach to the situation. Your son's entire history has to be taken into consideration along with the big age-gap between his sister and himself too, being a factor. So you must somehow take him to the counselor who can also advise as to when s/he wants to see him. You could also take him (in confidence with the counselor), in the guise of seeking career guidance because of his difficulty with chemistry, to explore other avenues for his professional choice in life. The counselor can take this opportunity to discuss his personality issues!!!

Dear lybrate-user, loss of a significant one is a potential source of stress. Sadness and grief are natural emotional responses which help us accept and cope with the loss. However, if the mood continues to be significantly sad even after six month with low levels of energy, easy fatigueability, and loss of interest and pleasure it may be helpful to seek professional help. You could consider consulting a clinical psychologist who practices psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is well known for efficiently managing depressive symptoms and facilitating effective coping with loss. Best wishes & regards,

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

(my grandma has passed away in sept 2016 at age of 76 she suicided, yet no one knows the reason but she used to say I ll die soon before her death and doc gave her depression tablets, they was no use. I was fine for a month, later I had a small argument with my husband where I told you depress me always. I was thinking over it and that day was my first panic attack took place like I started thinking am I depressed and what even I ll suicide that day onwards till nov 28 I used to get sweat hands and shortness breathing n all. I visited a psychiatrist he suggested me nexito 10 mg after a week I refuse to take as the reviews on net showed they r addictable. I do not want to rely on tabs anyway. Later I joined meditation and zumba and my anxiety reduced to a great extent but thoughts of death and if I see old people I get a feeling they ll die soon how r they still happy? How r everyone happy as they know they ll die one day. That time I get a short breathing prob for secs and m fine in notime. But at times I get a feeling m not enjoying my life thinking about all this cause before I was a brave girl a university topper never feared for anything and now I get a thought its better to die instead of such disturbance n very next sec I say to myself m not a coward no matter what I ll search for solution. Now can I overcome it forever without medication? Or else if I take nexito will I get addicted to it? And r they any chances of getting anxiety again in future? N hows hypnosis or nlp help me?

You are topper and bright student you should trust the process of psychiatric treatment. For sure you have anxiety and it could be Obsessive thoughts also ruminating about past and fear of death. You need to check with a psychiatrist again and give full account of your symptoms. The medication will go on for an year like antibiotics have course so do medication in psychiatry and if you leave in between you may relapse. These medication ate not at all addictive and have no side effects the only effect it will have is your betterment. NLP hypnosis has little role in your treatment. You can however go for psychotherapy cognitive behavioral therapy for ehich you need to consult a psychologist. You can consult me for same. It seems you have co morbid depression also get yourself treated asap. All the best.

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy - Common Facts About It!

Epilepsy is a brain triggered disorder that can result in the affected person having seizures or convulsions of the body. Such convulsions last about a few minutes and the person undergoing epileptic seizure might be unaware of what’s happening to him/her during those brief moments. They may recover and appear disoriented for a few minutes more.

Epilepsy can’t be cured but is treated through medicines called anticonvulsant drugs.

  1. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder brought about due to unusual electrical activity in the brain
  2. The person having the disorder can have episodes of seizures where there can be sudden involuntary movements of the person’s whole body and shaking of the arms and legs lasting a few minutes
  3. The condition can occur to anybody irrespective of age but children seem to suffer more from the condition following a head injury or emotional trauma
  4. Electroencephalogram or EEG is the best way for the doctor to understand the exact nature of the disorder and this will help in the treatment.
  5. Treatment through drugs is the most popular way of keeping the convulsions under check
  6. Medically, if the patient goes without seizures for a few years under regular medication then there is every possibility the person may not suffer further convulsions
  7. Apart from medication, dietary regulations have also been adopted by many physicians to treat the condition. Low carb and high protein items are advised as a way to reduce/stop the epileptic seizures
  8. In some cases, the doctor might decide to conduct a surgery to remove the aberrant part of the brain to treat the individual for epilepsy
  9. People with epilepsy have to take a lot of precautions in their daily routines to avoid getting seriously injured if they were to suffer a sudden attack of seizures
  10. Driving and swimming are to be avoided by them
  11. People standing around can help reduce the suffering by turning the person over to one side and offering a support to the head. Care can also be taken to remove any object that can cause injury to the person while having the convulsions.
  12. Some doctors study the pattern of the seizures occurring and help in regulating them in such a manner that the person gets the convulsions only in the nights while asleep
  13. This can limit the damage done to the person and can also help the person in going about normal routines
  14. Parents must inform the school authorities if their children suffers from epilepsy so that they can provide first aid to such students immediately if episodes occur in school

Epilepsy is a brain-related disorder that can cause the person to go through involuntary shaking of the body and the limbs. It is usually treated with drugs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

lybrate-user You have to make your goal stronger, If you really want to reach your goal then your activities will be directed towards your goal with full commitment Your goal will motivate you You will have to creat interest in the subjects and some curious thing as you are interested in novel reading. Then you will think about better life in future. If you perceive success, you will be more motivated, then your sleep will go away. Some sort of anxiety is also requirred to achieve the goal as we do in exam.
