Medicines are having side effects. In compulsory situation only we go for medicine. Up to that you are not go medicine it is good. There is a curability with psychotherapy, psychological counselling, cognitive behaviour modification therapy, relaxation therapy. Better to consult a good psychologist in hyderabad. Or please come to vijayawada I will help to you. Psychological counselling there is no side effects. It helps to modify your personality. It improves your life style management. It is always good to you. But the expert in psychology is needed very much. Do not be alone. Better to share your feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time. Be positive. Do not think too much about the depression. Today everyone is under depression. In this case no need of any medicine. So better to take the help of the good psychologist. Ok all the best.

Dear lybrate-user. These issues are mainly due to negative attitude rather than any specific psychological disorder. Stress also could be another factor. Once you are able to perceive the surroundings and happenings and understand self, your positive attitude begins. Attitude building therapy should suit you. If it is due to stress, stress management is the answer. Take care.

I'm 29 years male day by I'm forgetting evey single thing. I don't smoke or drink.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology, Bachelor of Arts - Psychology and English Literature
Psychologist, Coimbatore
Hi, It is good that you do not smoke or drink, bcoz those side effects will ruin your family relationship as well as your normal life. Forgetting every single thing means your daily routines, or forgetting your official tasks or missing your money or mobiles, we need to first analyse what type of memory loss you have whether it is only after a sudden incident or it is there from a prolonged period of time. So we need to know the complete detailed information regarding the same. Only then, we can assist and provide you treatment and other procedures to solve your problem. If you are interested and wanted help or assistance to help you you are most welcome. Until then, take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.

When I speak in front of audience I stammer, but when I personally converse with people I speak fluently. Is it due to fear of audience that exists inside me? I even read the newspaper loudly everyday. Will that help me solve my problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Reading the newspaper loudly does help with the stammering but not with regard public speaking and its fears. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). You probably have fear from childhood that has not been resolved and is tending to find an outlet in your mouth to make it stammer. You could meet with a counselor to settle this matter. There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.

How to Survive Depression Relapse

CST Psychiatry, DNB (PSYCHIATRY), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How to Survive Depression Relapse

Depression is defined as a mental state, which is typified by pessimistic sense of insufficiency and a hopeless lack of activity. This state could be so severe that it may require clinical intervention. 'Relapse' is the term coined for the reappearance of signs of depression within six months after the patient has been cured of depression. The time period of depression relapse may be smaller than depression recurrence, but it is equally frightening in both the cases. It becomes very difficult for the patient to combat all the signs of depression and cope up with gloom, fatigue, bad temper etc. The person starts alienating himself from the rest of the world. So, it becomes necessary for him to follow an apt strategy to survive a depression relapse.

First of all, the patient suffering from depression relapse should immediately consult his or her therapist or psychiatrist and get an adequate treatment for the same. The treatment procedure may include intake of antidepressants and psychotherapy. While the treatment is carried on, you may require some tips to survive that time interval. Below are some guidelines for the same: 

  1. Accept the Truth: Though it is never easy to acknowledge the state of mental illness, but it is the key to cope up with depression relapse. Accepting that depression would strike again and again would help you to deal with it.
  2. Identify the Symptoms of Depression Relapse: Instead of neglecting the initial signs of depression relapse, it is necessary to accept that depression has hit you again. It is better to leave your shame or guilt aside and consider it as a normal event. Immediately go and make your therapist aware of the symptoms you identified, so that remedial action could be taken accordingly. The first sign of depression relapse may differ from person to person. It may be lack of sensation or any sudden surge of energy. Although these changes may appear subtle but should be noted down and conveyed to your therapist.
  3. Seek help from others: Depression relapse gets easier to survive with the help of friends, family and loved ones. Open up about your mental state and talk freely to others. You will find that you are not alone. Constant support from your nearby people will prove very beneficial. They will keep reminding you the fact that, 'this too shall pass away'. Do not alienate yourself, instead try to socialize. Hang out with your friends and indulge in activities which bring you pleasure. Primarily it will be hard to seek joy by socializing but it will prove fruitful in the long run. Pursue your hobbies and try to relax.

Depression relapse occurs again and again, no matter how hard one tries to run away from it. So, it is better to accept this harsh truth and start following the above measures to survive Depression Relapse.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Take care.

I want to quit smoking so I wanted to know the best medicine out there that will help me to quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to consult your doctor for a prescription and you can get the medicine which will help to ease the withdrawal and also the craving. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Causes and Symptoms of Nicotine Addiction

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Causes and Symptoms of Nicotine Addiction

Nicotine addiction or tobacco addiction refers to an acute dependence upon tobacco products primarily due to the presence of the nicotine drug. In other words, nicotine addiction refers to an inability to stop using tobacco products despite the knowledge and awareness that it is harmful to you. While nicotine only induces addiction, it is the presence of other substances in tobacco which makes it damaging and injurious to health.

Nicotine has the tendency to produce effects in the brain, both physical as well as mind altering, that give temporary satisfaction. This is precisely why people get hooked into the habit of tobacco consumption, which eventually leads to addiction. Unfortunately, stopping tobacco use immediately can also lead to several withdrawal symptoms, like agitation and restlessness.

Causes
The main reason why tobacco is so addictive is due to the fact that nicotine releases neurotransmitters such as dopamine in the reward centre of the brain, which in turn improves your mood and gives you temporary pleasure.

Causes of nicotine addiction can either be physical or behavioral, for instance situations or feelings, which make you crave for tobacco. These include:

  1. Specific times during the day, say after every meal or during breaks at work
  2. While defecating
  3. While drinking alcohol
  4. Stressful or depressive situations
  5. At the sight or smell of a burning cigarette
  6. Peer pressure
  7. While driving

Symptoms
Symptoms of nicotine addiction include:

  1. You are unable to quit smoking despite frequent attempts.
  2. You experience withdrawal symptoms after attempting to quit.
  3. You continue to smoke despite the awareness that it is injurious to your health.
  4. You forego social as well as recreational activities because of your need to smoke.

Hello doctor, Am 9 month pregnant. Its my 2nd marriage. Still last month I don’t have any family support. Somehow I managed and now my parents accepted me. My husband took care of me very well. When my 7th month started I found some changes in his activities. I found that he is having affair with his old college mate. She is a person who unsatisfied with her family life. She is having 2 female kids. After 15 years back she came back to my husband life. My husband mind get distracted. He totally become mad. When she enter he is not at all speaking to me. She knows well that am pregnant. But as her wish she is dragging my husband. She is living in abroad. She came india to meet my husband. Luckily, there is no physical relationship between them. She went again to her place. Now problem is he forget my things. He is thinking her as his wife. He is not at all spending any money for my pregnancy. 2 time I warned her to stop her illegal things. She used to speak with my husband night times. She clearly mentioning she can not come out from her family life. She is very rich. Manytimes she sent money to my husband. I hate all this unwanted things. Am totally depressed. I could’t take this as simple. She is seducing him very cheap manner. They both are sharing their nude pictures. My husband always forcing her to send her photos before sleep. My husband thinking that I don’t know anything much. Just 4 days back he told, I could’t forget her. Am speaking to her as a friend. There is nothing between us more than this. But yesterday my husband sent his lower nude picture to her. Am crying very badly. He is taking some steps to moving to her place. He told me that, he will not go. I guess he is playing double game with me and her. Still now he wants her in his life. He don’t care about me and my delivery. He is saying “you were wanted baby from me. I gave you. Live with that. Don’t call me for delivery and other functions. I done what you want. Don’t bother me anymore”. Doctor, I just keeping my feelings inside me. I did’t ask anything to him. Because its my life. I know he is crossing moral ethics. I elly need him to come for my delivery. This is my last hope. I hope that, once he see our baby there is a chance to change in his mind. Doctor please advice me to handle him. Still this second they both are keep chatting. He is going extreme crazy which spoiling my family life. I want him back in my life. Is there is any possible after child birth his mind will change? Please say best suggestion to me.

Homeopath, Pune
Hello don't worry he will come back to u.after delivery he will realize. Don't take any stress. Now you care urself and your baby. Pregnancy can lead to greater intimacy, but it also can trigger less pleasant changes in a relationship, including infidelity. “It’s very important for women to be aware that this is a critical time and to be vigilant, unexplained absences, strange phone calls, spending more time “at work,” less interest in sex and a greater focus on his appearance. At the same time, you have to be aware that hormones may be affecting your thoughts and emotions, Rather than jumping to conclusions alone, process your feelings with a trusted confidante outside the family. If a certain behavior seems suspect, ask questions rather than accuse when broaching the subject. “Your first approach may be to ask your partner if he can explain. Despite the challenges pregnancy brings to a relationship, infidelity is not inevitable. One thing you can do is sit down with your partner as early as possible in the pregnancy to discuss what your plans might be if your sexual interest drops. “If you say, ‘I really want to talk about our options if I don’t feeling like having sex,’ believe me, he’s going to pay attention, And sex doesn’t have to involve intercourse. “Experiencing sexual release through touch, mouth or massage speaks very powerfully to men,“Encourage him by telling him he’s going to be a great father.” And get him involved in the pregnancy and planning for a baby, focusing on his skills. While he may not want to discuss nursery colors, he may want to build a crib. Difficult as it may feel, actively preventing or addressing the issue can strengthen a relationship. “Infidelity is not a death knell; it’s often just a wake-up call,” so everything will be fine after your delivery. Take care.

My father aged 67 years have dementia since last 1 year. What is the possible treatment for him.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
My father aged 67 years have dementia since last 1 year. What is the possible treatment for him.
Dementia is the name for a group of symptoms caused by disorders that affect the brain. It is not a specific disease. People with dementia may not be able to think well enough to do normal activities, such as getting dressed or eating. They may lose their ability to solve problems or control their emotions. Their personalities may change. They may become agitated or see things that are not there. Memory loss is a common symptom of dementia. However, memory loss by itself does not mean you have dementia. People with dementia have serious problems with two or more brain functions, such as memory and language. Although dementia is common in very elderly people, it is not part of normal aging. Many different diseases can cause dementia, including Alzheimers and stroke. Drugs are available to treat some of these diseases. While these drugs cannot cure dementia or repair brain damage, they may improve symptoms or slow down the disease. Consult a psychiatrist or neurologist.
