Question: I have had arthritis for thirty years, I am just starting to grunt and groan at the smallest irritation
over any annoyance and walking, 73 years, I have tried green tea to calm my self down, I cant
get into a calm peaceful state of mind, I used to be able to reach meditation but cant now. I am
wondering about tranquilizers such as resperidone, I don't want to use Narcotics.

Brief Answer:
Can be due to anxiety.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The irritation and annoyance that you are facing can be related to anxiety and depression. A mild antianxiety drug without day time sedation or an anti depressant will help in reducing its problem. Risperidone can also help. But you need a proper evaluation and prescriptions by a psychiatrist for that.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hi . I am on antidepressants for about 7 years now. I was so slim but suddenly gained a lot of weight. I began to have an enlarged liver of 17.5 measure. And then the latest X-ray showed that i began to have a bulky spleen . Blood tests are Ok except for Gout which is high. So does this condition mean anything? or could i have a hidden cancer in some part of my body especially that my belly is so fat. I am 35 years old
