I am a smoker 10 cigar /day. Now I am trying to quit smoking. May I use Bupron XL150 to quit smoking. presently I am having paroxetine 12.5 with ethiloza beta 0.25 for anxiety.

General Physician,
Bupron also is antidepressant used for stopping smoking also. You may feel over tired and lethargic if both are used. Consult your psychiatrist.

I used to chew tobacco for almost 20 years, which I could leave now since last one.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally.

Dear sir/ma'am, I am 29 years male wt 78 kgs from the last few months approx 10, I have got shivering in my hand while I am getting angry, even I feel change in my voice and complete shivering in my whole body. Please suggest.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
The reason you shiver when you are angry is because your anger is intense and your nerves are giving way to the emotional outburst. It looks like that your nervous system is weakening under the emotional pressures that you are going through. You could take counselling sessions where you can learn and become self aware about your anger and find positive ways to express your anger and still get your point across. 1. Anger is a normal emotion like joy and happiness and you need not be embarrassed if you get angry. However, if expressed too often and in an unappropriate manner, it not only will harm your health and mental balance, but also impact your work and relationships. 2. Befriend your anger. Don't embrace anger wholly, but keep it at a distance and analyse it by seeing how it looks and feels like to be angry. Where do you feel in in your body and what color and shape is it. The more you understand your anger, it will lose its grip on you and you will be free from that emotion. Thus you have let go of your anger. 3. Use I statements: when arguing and fighting, we blame each other for what went wrong. This makes the fight very ugly and both parties get angry and agitated. Adding instances from the past is like adding fuel to fire. So learning from here, stay with the present issue and refrain from digging up the past. Don't use blaming tone and words. It hurts the other person. Instead, say" when you said/did. I felt very angry that time because I expected you to. Here you are taking responsibility for your anger. Remember no one can make you angry. You are yourself responsible for your emotional state. 4. Be less critical: everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect including you. So it's ok if someone has made a small mistake. Can you overlook it and say. Next time please make sure that this doesn't happen again? also, what you may expect may never actually happen because the other person has a different view point. Learn to see different perspectives and try to strike a balance. There is fun in variety. If everyone thinks alike then life will be very boring and repetitive. Forgiveness is a large part of anger management. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat.

Ocd is a very stubborn psychiatric illness. It is very distressing to have recurrent absurd thoughts/doubts/impulses/images against will. Often person suffering from it is bound to do compulsive rituals like in your case you because of obsession of contamination, are cleaning excessively. Treatment is possible through medicines and psychotherapy. You may consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

What are the exercises and nutrition can I have for doing sharping the memory or cognitive.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user umar, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation.

But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

Dear , alprazolam is an effective medication for treating generalized anxiety and panic disorders. Taking away xanax, alprazolam or any other benzodiazepine suddenly, especially in the case of an addicted person, can lead to consequences like insomnia, nausea, vomiting, headache etc. The withdrawal process takes time and is to be made systematically. Tapering is an effective method. You should get help from de-addiction center or psychiatrist for further advice. Take care.

I cont stop smoking. Can you help me to stop smoking. Also tell me how to increase my blood level in my body.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, To increase your blood volume, you should first investigate the reasons for the problem. Consult a physician and get yourself pathologically evaluated. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I have been tensed by the last three days due to my study can I get a solution to reduce it.
I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Like you aptly described it you are living in a dream world. Your mother has done a marvelous job and you should not let it all go to waste by living in a fantasy world. Wanting to be rich is not a bad idea but expecting it to fall in your lap is just not on. All rich people have worked hard, and some of them without qualifications. You on the other hand are well qualified and you now need to go out and face the world. May be mom has been too protective around you and you have become lazy because of that. Plan your every day and chalk out a course of action with long term goals, and set up the short term goals to achieve those major objectives. I also suggest that you do an aptitude test and seek career guidance from a counselor to identify what you are made for and get serious about attaining them. The best reward you can give your mom is to give her a new lease of life: she is the one who should now live a life of comfort and enjoy your earnings. This cannot be done by living in an unreal world.

Hi Lybrate-user thanks for sharing your problem .we cannot change our past start your life with new energy. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something wrong is happening ,people are saying something ,just ignore all this, we get life not to make others happy first important thing is to make ourself happy. We can not make everyone happy its just impossible so just focus on yourself and completely avoid other's comment. Make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. If you further need my help you can contact me. Take care.

You seemed to have stayed long enough in this marriage to have a two year old baby! If you are so depressed please meet with a counselor and if the depression is due entirely to the marriage then meet with a marriage counselor and get some guidelines as to how to manage with this relationship without getting depressed. If they advice you against the marriage are you willing to divorce this man? You must be clear about all these matters should a decision like that has to be made. About earning money, it is possible to do your own business in an MLM type venture. If you wish to know more details please contact me. There is no problem without a solution.
