Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My husband and I got married 1.5 years back and we have a 3-month-old child. Recently, he started feeling disinterested to go to work place and is always overthinking. When I asked about his overthinking, he said he did not like to go to office. However, when I enquired at his office, there was no issue. Recently, I came to know that during my third month of pregancy also, he had the same complaint and had also consulted a psychiatrist without my knowledge. He used the tablet Risperidone and tablet Lorazepam for three months, after which the complaint resolved. We come from a very good family background, and also share a strong bond. Also, he is very much concerned about us.

Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern and would be happy to help.

Tabley Risperidone is an antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia or any psychotic disorders. Tablet Lorazepam is for sleep. Can I know if he is continuing the medicines? Did he mention anytime that he hears any unknown voices? Does he have any suspiciousness that someone is trying to harm him or his family members? Does he sleep properly every day? Did he mention any kind of stress lately? Is he consulting any psychiatrist now?

Kindly answer these questions so that I can help you better.

Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the response. He is not taking any psychiatric medicines now and has taken those medicines for only three months in the past. He does not have any other symptoms. He is sleeping properly and does not have any delusions or illusions. His problem is overthinking, and he is not interested in going to the job. He always asks me if he is right in doing so. He understands that he has to change his behavior. He does not have any love failures in the past; also, he does not have many friends. His only problem is overthinking what others will think about him.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Did you enquire his family members how was he before marriage? The only way to find out what he is going through is to ask him directly. If he was like this before marriage also, then probably his personality is more introvert. Also, does he have any thyroid disorders? I suggest he get a thyroid profile test done, as hypothyroidism can cause dullness and low mood.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
