Psychiatry Profile Image

Psychiatry

Psychiatry is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental disorders. These include various maladaptations related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perceptions.

Overview

Initial psychiatric assessment of a person typically begins with a case history and mental status examination. Physical examinations and psychological tests may be conducted.

Mental disorders are often diagnosed in accordance with clinical concepts listed in diagnostic manuals such as the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and the widely used Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

Treatment

The combined treatment of psychiatric medication and psychotherapy has become the most common mode of psychiatric treatment in current practice.

Treatment may be delivered on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on the severity of functional impairment.

I am sorry to hear that these symptoms have been so troubling for you and affecting your quality of life. Chronic fatigue syndrome is usually diagnosed when no other medical conditions or causes can be found for a person's symptoms of excessive tiredness/fatigue. This sounds lik...

I think there is more than meets the eye. Certainly there are a lot of life changes happening, but finding it hard to meet new people could be devastating for you. You might need to drop by doctor's clinic to see what else can be done. Otherwise, exercise, sunlight and fresh air ...

Thank you M. for your interesting question. I see that you have taken a lot of steps to try to deal with the problem. That is assuming that it is a problem in the first place. Because some people just are born sad and most people do not know their "purpose" in life until much lat...

Dear Rien It looks like you are facing a difficult phase of your life. Is it just stress from school or are there challenges from other areas of your life as well? Some teenagers also have problems arising from their family and from their relationship. If it is so complicated an...

Thank you for asking such a fascinating question. Many cases of gender dysphoria start in childhood as most of us will have a very good idea of our own gender even at a very young age like a few years or so. At age 3, we would begin to develop our own ideas about gender. ...

Will Stopping Your Antidepressant Medication Lead To Withdrawal Symptoms? This S'porean Psychiatrist Explains

Antidepressants are drugs used to treat patients with depressive disorders. While they're carefully prescribed by doctors to help patients feel better, it's not uncommon for patients to develop 'side effects' when they stop taking the medications. 

Lexi, a 20-year-old female asked a question on DxD's question and answer platform. She was on antidepressants on 2 months, and has stopped taking her antidepressants for 2 weeks.

Recently, she has been experiencing nauseousness and migraines and she wanted to know if her nauseousness and migraines are withdrawal symptoms. 

Dr Ng Beng Yeong, a psychiatrist, responded to her question based on his extensive experience in the field. Here's what you should know before popping those pills.

Some of the effects of hormone replacement therapy are not reversible. To illustrate, many trans men are happy with their voice deepening, and some will report a scratchiness in their throat soon after starting testosterone. The length of vocal cords changes and the timbre of the person's voice h...

How to tell if gender dysphoria will persist? The only way to tell is to observe the individual over time. For it to qualify as a gender dysphoria diagnosis, the individual needs to have it for at least 6 months. The focus of the gender dysphoria diagnosis is the person's r...
