Depression

Singapore Psychiatrist manage depression on a regular basis. Sinagpore's rate of depression Depression is similar to the rest of the world, at about 5% of the population. This makes depressive disorders one of the most common psychiatric disorders in Singapore. While we often feel sad and mistake this for depression; depression is a medical illness caused by chemical changes in the brain, not something that can be simply willed away by not thinking so much or "being strong". Common symptoms include low mood and loss of interest in things. Insomnia and loss of appetite are also common.  Females tend to get affected more often as well. The good news is that depression is a highly treatable condition. Find out more about depression and its treatment here.

Anxiety

Anxiety Disorders in Singapore have a life time risk of about 10 to 15%, making them another common condition treated by Singapore psychiatrists. Anxiety symptoms may be more generalised and constant or may come in  the form of discrete episodes of intense fear like in Panic attacks or be a mixture of the two. Anxiety also often involves both a physical and mental response. Physical symptoms could include palpitations, sweating, headaches, muscle tension or dry mouth. Emotional symptoms include negative thinking and poor concentration. There could also be sleep disturbances like insomnia, increased tiredness and irritability. Anxiety symptoms can also often co-exists with symptoms of clinical depression as well. Find out how best to treat anxiety here.

ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is perhaps the most common psychiatric disorder in children that present to psychiatrists in Singapore. Rates are estimated to be 3-5% in children and 1-2% in adults. While more a condition of behaviour and focus, there can be far-reaching issues in terms of long-term self-esteem, confidence if left untreated.  While we used to think children "outgrew" this condition, we now have good evidence that symptoms of inattention often persist into adulthood as well. We often see adults develop depression and/or anxiety as a consequence of untreated ADHD as well. Treatment of ADHD could involve behaviour modification or medications but more commonly a combination of the two. Find out more about ADHD in children and adults here.
