Schizophrenia is a chronic problem caused by Neuro chemical disturbance in brain. It is characterised by fear, odd experiences and distorted thought pattern. Treatment is with antipsychotic medicines which may need to continue throughout life. Coping with a mental disorder as serious as schizophrenia can be challenging, both for the person with the condition and for friends and family. Here are some ways to cope: 1. Learn about schizophrenia. Education about the disorder can help motivate the person with the disease to stick to the treatment plan.

Based in your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For first episode of anxiety/ depression/ panic, the usual maintenance phase is 6 months of asymptomatic period, after which medicines can be gradually tapered. But treatment may need to continue longer depending on severity and frequency of episodes. To take any decision to change medication or stop them, several factors have to be taken in account for which regular follow up with your psychiatrist is important. For second opinion, seek a proper consultation with another psychiatrist and take along your previous prescriptions.

It takes a while for the body to adapt to a new medicine. Take half a tablet for few days and increase it to one. If problem persists after a few weeks, consult your psychiatrist.

Psychosexual problems are largely caused by anxiety related to the sex act or any antecedent event during which anxiety was triggered. One's emotions, sexual understanding and socio cultural influences have a major role to play. Anxiety thus results in erectile dysfunction and/or premature ejaculation. A psychiatrist or a psychotherapist works with the client to explore these issues and conflicts so as to reach the root cause of anxiety. Medicines are available for symptomatic relief.

Stress is a reaction to a real or perceived event that acts as a stressor. In other words, how much stressed one feels depends on how much stress one perceives in a given situation. Stress cause chemical response in brain with number of physical and psychological effects. Acute stress can trigger of anxiety and long term stress, even if it is low intensity can cause permanent changes. Your heart, muscles, nervous system, immunity, all get affected. Fatigue, lethargy, muscle aches and pains, lack of enthusiasm, irritability and sleep disturbance may occur. Lifestyle malfunction result and social and interpersonal health suffer. Start by making a stress diary. Identify what causes stress. Ask why it causes stress. Is it a negative presumption about the even or a reality that is bothering you. Then figure out, how you have been dealing with the stressor. If the way you handle stress doesn't help, figure out the alternatives . If you by yourself are not able to do this exercise, consult a psychotherapist. Regarding medicines, discuss with your psychiatrist so that alternative medicines can be prescribed.
