I have been suffering from anxiety for last few days and was having sleep related problems. So I consulted a neurologist. And he prescribed nexito forte tab. To me. After having it for 2 weeks my anxiety problem was gone. But after a few months the anxiety problem is coming back again. So should I continue having nexito forte? Does it have any side effects?

Tablets will only remove the symptom and not the underlying cause. Anxiety is worrying about the future and not feeling prepared for it. You can talk to a counsellor who can help you to feel more prepared about the issues which make you feel anxious and help you find your strengths and work upon your limitations. It will also help you assess situations more objectively, weigh the pros and cons of each option and help in wise decision making. These skills will help you to tide over any future situations also which could be potentially stressful for you.

As I am terminated from job , I am sitting home and facing a lot of consequences I feel tired as I don't get out of home I feel irritated but I know I am not in depression because the job was not related to my field .

You may not be depressed right now but if you continue to sit at home, you might get depressed. Besides physical problems such as weight gain, joint problems can result. So go out, meet a few friends and relatives everyday. make sure you take at least a 30 minute brisk walk daily. Dont think about what has happened so far, focus on what can be done to get your dream job!

Hypertension - Can it Affect Your Sexual Bliss?

M.D.Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology
Sexologist, Jaipur
Hypertension - Can it Affect Your Sexual Bliss?

Blood pressure is basically what happens when the blood exerts force against the walls of the blood vessels. This force matches the cardiac output and also, the resistance experienced from the walls of the blood vessels a process that produces blood pressure. Hypertension is a condition that occurs when this pressure rises above the normal which is anything over 140 over 90 mHg. The symptoms of this condition will include hot flashes, dizzy spells, fatigue, accelerated heartbeat and other debilitating conditions. Sex is also an area that gets affected by hypertension.

Let us find out the causes and treatment for the same.

Hypertension and male sexuality: A chronic patient of hypertension will go through a depletion of the lining that flanks the blood vessels, which in turn, limits the flow of blood. This also means that there is less blood flowing towards the penis and surrounding areas that get activated during sexual intercourse. This makes it difficult for many hypertensive men to achieve and retain an erection for long enough to enjoy sexual activity. This problem is most commonly known as erectile dysfunction. Also, these blood pressure problems can have an effect on ejaculation which leads to lack of sexual satisfaction. Many drugs prescribed for such patients may also lead to this problem as a side effect, which causes further fear and anxiety for the patient.

Hypertension and female sexuality: While the effect of high blood pressure on a woman’s sexuality is not as conclusive as its effect on male sexuality, it is a medically proven fact that decreased blood flow due to high blood pressure will also lead to a reduction in the blood flow to the vaginal area. This can lead to many problems including vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse, lack of arousal, difficulty in achieving an orgasm and relationship as well as anxiety issues.

Treatment: For women, better lubrication for better arousal is one of the key factors. For men, the use of safe medication as far as hypertension is concerned, is crucial. Medicines like sildenafil and tadafil as well as vardenafil are not known to interfere with the blood pressure medication. Yet, it is important to contact the doctor before having any medication.

Therapy: Better responses can be garnered by building intimacy, an area that a sex therapist or sexologist can help you with. With the help of proper therapy, the patient can learn to relax and enjoy the act with lots of foreplay and experiences that will help in building closeness like taking a warm bath together and other such activities. Promoting overall health can also help in improving your sex life if you are a patient of hypertension. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

I'm 20 years old and since the last year I've been smoking. I want to quit. How can I overcome the urge?

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Start your stop smoking plan with start s- set a quit date: choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit, if you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have few days to adjust to the change. T- tell family, friends and co-workers that you plan to quit: let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A- anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting: most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigratte cravings. R- remove cigrattes & other products from your home, car and work: throw away all of your cigarettes, lighter, ashtrays and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. T- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit: your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal.

You need to change your study habits. Choose right time, place for your study. Switch off all dis-tractors such as mobile, tv, music system etc. Practice writing what you have read and make several repetitions. Take sufficient diet and rest. Yoga and deep breathing is always helpful before you study. Always remember, refreshed mind always learn and recall better. Invest your energy in relaxing your mind before you study.

Go for a follow up and discuss your concerns with your psychiatrist. Usually about 60 % patients will improve with the first antidepressant. Remaining 40 % will require another antidepressant or a combination of antidepressants.

I am 37 years old male. I have antisocial personality disorder from last 3 months.

I am 37 years old male. I have antisocial personality disorder
from last 3 months.
I do not know whether you are aware of this term. You cannot have it for the last three months only: it must have been there for a long time and may not have gotten you into trouble yet. This is a very difficult condition to work with and unless you are genuinely committed, you may circumvent the system and therapy to unproductive ends. You must work with a counselor who is geared to treat this condition and is also equally committed to see you through. There will be an inadvertent tendency to go against norms, authority, parent figures and against people in general. There will be a strong need for negative excitement and some joy in fear and putting others in distress. These traits need to be monitored and confronted effectively for any meaningful outcomes. Do discuss these openly with the counselor and make contracts and accept firm consequences for failure on your part to comply. You have not mentioned in what areas you have been having problems but you must focus a lot of the therapy to handle those particular areas.

I am facing too much problem related to my health as I am not getting divorce since 9+ years. Feeling mental stress.

I am facing too much problem related to my health as I am not getting divorce since 9+ years.
Feeling mental stress.
If that is the only reason then you can claim a divorce for desertion, if your wife does not stay with you for seven or more years. If there are other complications i don't know about, then talk to your lawyer and follow his/her guidelines. But it is important for you to learn to carry on with yoru life. If you need to meet with a counselor to guide you on this, then I suggest you do so immediately. The problem cannot be removed for various reasons. the only option you have then is to learn to cope with it. This you will learn from a counselor and develop both skills and techniques to adjust to this situation.

I am male, 35. Off late I am loosing my power to focus on things. I used to be an avid reader and had a good academic and professional record. But nowadays I can hardly concentrate and read any written material for more than 10 mins.

You are probably under some form of stress. Look back and see what is causing the stress and for how long. Once you deal with the stress, the focus and memory will happily return. There may be some pressure if you are looking too much into the future too: that is another form of stress that needs to be dealt with soon. Meet with a counselor and check out your emotions to make sure you are not suppressing them. In the meantime please do regular and vigorous exercise, yoga and meditation, get at least 8 hours of sleep every day, and eat a healthy diet of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. I hope there are no strains in the domestic scene and with the people in the house. Attend some spiritual courses to accept life as it is and to learn to live calmly and in a relaxed manner.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Your love is immature and possessive which is more dangerous than cancer. True love is beyond doubts. You can not change the past. But, you can change your thought about the past. Since you are 21, your lover must also be around 20 who may not make right decisions regarding love (past one). She loves you in the present. You are digging out the past which nobody can change. Practicing forgiveness and unconditional love will lead you to a divine love-life. Hell? (past) or heaven? (present)= the choice is yours.

I am 45 years old male and last 20 years take alcohol know last five year I am serious alcoholic (using about 400 ml alcohol per day) and after drink I forget every thing like how I come back home my doctor directed me to take one tablet pregabalin 50, Pexep CR (Paroxetine) 12.5.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. the work. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. You must also talk to your superior that the workload is getting beyond your means and that you need more personnel to support you. Finally, learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate. You may also take a multivitamin and multimineral along with your food. You must also keep a good regimen of exercise, sleep, and diet so that you can combat stress in whatever form it appears.
