Dear , congratulations on your quitting smoking. You could take lung function test to know the current condition of your lungs. To stop the urge to smoke, you could exercise, engage in physical activities, family outings, temples, fruit juices and tender coconut water etc. As a last resort you can use nicotine chewing gums or patches. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I am happy to help you with more tips. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, thank you for writing to us. I can understand your concern about medication's effectiveness for curing your anxiety. Petril (clonazepam) is used to treat anxiety disorders. It is proven effective drug for anxiety. Sleep disturbance is one of the symptoms of anxiety disorder. There are other primary anti anxiety medications like ssri, snri and tca. There is a strong scientific research evidence for these medicines for anxiety treatment. Pertil should preferably not to be continued for more than 6-8 weeks. Discuss this with your treating psychiatrist. Regards.

I smoke everyday. Not many but like 2-3 ciggs a day. I want to quit now! But it's been very difficult:(Any help?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform after 2 weeks the changes.

No stick to one doctor. Medicines take atleast 4-6 weeks to come in full action may be more in severe depression, but it will certainly work. Also, never stop medication on your own or the patient will relapse with even more intensity of symptoms. Have faith. Its not like headache you have one pill and get over the ache, this will take time just like it took time to build up.

I am feeling very tensed during exams due to pressure and forgetting all topics which I had read so to get rid of this tension what are the tips that l have to follow so that I can follow and feel tension free.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

I feel very depressed due to jobless at the age of 42 and no earning source. Please guide or help.
Good ​Morning, It is not uncommon to feel depressed with having no job and source of income. I would say it is most likely going to go away since you are actively trying to find a job and when do find one, the symptoms of depression like low mood, decreased energy, appetite and sleep difficulties, low motivation, guilty feelings and feelings of hopeless, helpless, worthless-ness as well as poor self esteem will probably go away. So keep trying on landing a job and in the meantime you might want to take up your hobbies and try to make some money in the meantime. Taking breaks from always thinking about having problems without work and going for a walk and speaking with others or doing things that you have always liked to do will certainly help. I am sure you are very resourceful, if you have asked for help here, you certainly can in places where you will certainly find help. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

I'm 22years old. Recently started smoking. Approximately smoked around 35cigarettes. After smoking I can't walk for 50sec and even shivering. My hands and legs shaking after smoking. I feel like exhausted. I'm completely out of mind after smoking. What is the reason.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously the effects of tobacco are not at all agreeable to you. Nicotine makes the heart beat faster and raises up your bp immediately. The carbon monoxide reduces the oxygen carrying capacity and makes you feel exhausted and affects your stamina. The nerves are also affected by smoking and therefore shivering and discomfort may also be experienced. The out of mind experience is also quite typical in the initial stages of smoking and many people go for that kick from the butt. But kick the butt you must before you get too enslaved to it. For some people the effects are less than for others. For you it clearly indicates that smoking is contraindicative and not at all suitable for your constitution. Very simply, stop right now and live well. Smoking is injurious to health for any and every body.

Hi lybrate-user, your problem is not that serious to worry or take medicines, it can be cured without medicines. You should actually take some relaxation therapy provided by psychologist, yoga teacher to relieve you from tension and back headache. It is good that you are non alcoholic and non smoker, added advantage to come out from anxiety, depression and hand shivering. First I would like to give you some advise, you go attend relaxation therapy and yoga that is meditation from a well trained yoga teacher to remove your anxiety and back headache for at least 3 to 6 months continuously, do not take this as a joke, if you attend some classed for your health sake should attend continuously, only then you can come out from this problem. This will help you to be self confident. You have got to visit a counsellor or contact counsellor to remove your depression, bring in self confidence and to help you lead a better life with happiness, but before would like to know more about yourself, family, work, related to this problem if any. Only then we could help you better.

I guess you are having too many things on your mind and you are probably stressed out. Please make a diary for yourself. Plan actvities for each day in advance. Make a list of all jobs to be done, prioritise these jobs. Keep checking this list though out the day. Make a tick mark for completed jobs and try to finish the rest. While going to bed, every night try to memories your plan for next day. With little practice, you would be able to achieve it. At same time, learn some techniques to enhance your memory. All the best.

Dear Haresh, Welcome to lybrate. Social Anxiety disorder treatment consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, You will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.
