You should contact your psychiatrist as the medication you are taking may not be the best one for you. Sometimes we need to test a couple of medications until we find out the one that fits best for your body. Yes, psychotherapy is the best treatment for OCD and is the only way to control it as a long-term effect. Medications would only control it temporarily. If you don't work with the root cause of it, then it is harder for it to go away on its own. READ MORE
It depends. I think a full evaluation should take part. However, if there is no reason for her worry because your child is healthy, then psychotherapy can help her control it. READ MORE
She can start by seeing a psychotherapist/counselor/therapist or a psychiatrist. The best time to go to see someone is when it starts, that way it doesn't get worse. Of course, if there are any suicidal thoughts, she must go to her nearest ER. READ MORE
There is a type of therapy that is called CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy) that can help you with that. You need to slowly desensitize yourself in order to be able to not be fearful anymore. See a therapist that can provide this type of therapy for you. READ MORE
If your goal is to get off the medication at some point then yes. You need to process the reason why you have not been able to handle the stress or just learn other, new coping skills through counseling. If you don't do that, once you get off the medication, there is a chance that any other moment of stress the same thing could happen. READ MORE
Adderall Xr 10 mg is not a high dose, however, usually what happens is that patients start feeling very lethargic, lacking motivation, desire to do anything, hard to get out of bed, etc. It can look like depression, but it's not. I'm not sure where you are at, but sometimes, if you go to an urgent care or an emergency room, they can provide you with a supply until you find someone for her. READ MORE
There is nothing wrong with you! That is more common than people like to talk about. Not sure how old your child is, but it could be baby blues or post-partum depression. Either way, I would say get yourself evaluated by a psychologist or a psychiatrist. READ MORE
Yes, it can. It helps you center your energy and your mind in your body so you can calm your mind and rest easier. READ MORE
I was sexually abused as a child and now as my marriage is approaching, I am beginning to freak out. What should I do?
Yes, do therapy to process your history of trauma. READ MORE
There is nothing that you can do about it, she needs to get help. You can't force her to get help but she needs to see a psychologist or a psychiatrist to get treatment. READ MORE
First, you need to understand where the symptoms are coming from. An evaluation for depression and anxiety needs to be done as these symptoms could cause a lack of concentration and focus. Once you know the cause, then the solutions can be provided. READ MORE
Yes it could cause physical symptoms. First, always make sure that there is no problem medically that could be the reason. If all is good physically then depression could be the cause. Once depression is treated then the rest would go away on its own. READ MORE
See a psychologist. Usually, when patients have difficulty dealing when things don't go their way, it is because there is some type of control issue happening. By you not being able to control something (it going your way), you may feel vulnerable, uncomfortable, anxious, and out of control, which is being expressed with anger. Sometimes there is a history of a situation where you lack some control that caused a lot of distress and it has stayed with you. READ MORE
Yes, you could be suffering from post-partum depression. First, make sure that hormonally, medically, nothing is abnormal (such as the thyroid). If all is good, then see a psychologist or psychiatrist to discuss your symptoms further. Don't let it get worse. It is more common than you think, there is nothing wrong with you. Just go and see someone, it will get better. READ MORE
Yes of course, Why not? It can provide a safe space for him to vent and say things that he may not feel comfortable sharing with you or his father. It can also teach him how to handle situation so in the future when something that he doesn't like happens, he will have more tools to process it. READ MORE
Unfortunately, you can't help her directly. She needs to want to get better. You could suggest taking her to a psychotherapist or a psychiatrist for an evaluation and to accompany her for support. But she needs to recognize first that she is not liking the way she feels in order to find a solution to it. READ MORE
