How much time should I take for drinking alcohol when I have taken antibiotic medicine?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
How much time should I take for drinking alcohol when I have taken antibiotic medicine?
Dear Fameer, There may be some interaction of alcohol with antibiotics. It depends on food taken, type and quantity of alcohol, type of antibiotic, duration of drinking, the medical illness for which antibiotics are given, age, sex, etc,etc. So, the best advice will be to quit drinking forever with this illness. Quitting alcohol gives many health benefits. Try now. All the best.

Social Media - Ways It Is Affecting Your Mental Health!

Social Media - Ways It Is Affecting Your Mental Health!

Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch with its dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor, snatches away the boon of communication. Social media gifts us with easy communication and wider access.   

  1. Social media creates peer pressure: Coming in continuous contact with occurrences in other people's life can lead to mental setback. You may feel low on comparing your achievements with that of others. Consciously or unconsciously you are struggling throughout to be at par with them who are seemingly jubilant. Virtual peer pressure is realized by many. 
  2. It can bring us at close quarters with penitence: Persistent grief or regret can take a toll on your mental health. It can make you depressive. Depression is again not a healthy thing for personal growth and development. It usually results in lack of motivation.
  3. You tend to panic more through continued use of social media: If you have not been in touch with social media for a couple of days you are instilled with the fear of losing out on incidents. You panic regarding what has been happening all over the world that in reality will in most cases bear no effect on you.
  4. It accustoms you to the glamorous appeal of drugs: Social media tends to showcase the ills of society as glamorous contributing factors of life. It celebrates the vices of drugs and other addictive agents as virtues. Young adults are therefore easily incited to give in to addiction.

Positive effects of social media on your mental health
1. Social media will let you take a break from hovering tasks and responsibilities. 
2. Helps you connect with long lost friends. Social networking sites will bring you close to new and old friends alike. 
3. Real society is overly judgmental. It prohibits you from coming across as your true self. Virtual media allows you to come out of your cocoon and helps you feel comfortable about yourself. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate-user. All these things depends on person to person. You are a good person and therefore your perception about this aspect is as good as cheating. For others this is just enjoyment. Don't worry about those people. Take care.

Stress and anxiety are reactions to a situation and not a situation in itself. Gastric problems are often related to underlying anxiety which you may not be able to manage adequately by yourself. It's better to take psychiatric help so that root cause can be evaluated.

My father does't like reading, writing and watching TV; the things that he enjoyed after having an emergency with big dip in sodium level. He was also in depression for some time after that. What is the remedy? He is 76.

During some episodes of his condition, he is likely to abstain from some interests that he had formerly. There are still a lot of other things to be done, some of which may attract his attention. Do not let him wallow in inactivity. He will withdraw into himself and may lose himself completely. Throw anything into the ring to see what appeals to him and draw him out of his internal frame of mind. Once he relates to the external world with whatever catches his attention, you could cultivate a new set of activities into his regimen. The occupation should engage both his body and mind. The depression will impact the level of boredom and this may put him off things that he used to relish earlier. Your ingenuity has to kick in to discover newer methods, and it may be a constant exercise, in the long run. Any neglect may only lead to his wasting away his life, and may even lead to a bed-ridden state. That is not going to be something to look forward to. So for his sake and yours, get him moving. You may also try acupuncture and full body massage.

How To Manage Procrastination?

PGDPC, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Durgapur
How To Manage Procrastination?

The activity of delaying or putting off something is known as procrastination. Even the best individuals battle with it consistently. However, some people accomplish something that the majority of us do not- they push past it. They do not permit it to influence their work. They develop brilliant and beneficial techniques to break past mental obstructions and remain productive. Here are a few ways with which you can beat procrastination:

  1. Try to start: Starting something can be very difficult. However, in case that you can get over that part, you will have some level of energy. Even your brain will probably goad you to continue dealing with the task. This happens because of a mental phenomenon called the Zeigarnik impact. It says that unfinished tasks will probably stay in your memory. This is exactly why planned things and to-do lists consistently appear in your mind until you finish them.
  2. Separate huge tasks into smaller assignments: Enormous tasks can frighten you, so you put them off. By taking that huge task and separating it into smaller assignments, you can decrease your burden make a start. This could include concentrating on one part of the research to begin with.
  3. Ask yourself “why?”: It is easier to inspire yourself to accomplish something you value. In case you are attempting to complete something, why not spend a couple of minutes asking yourself precisely why you need to do it and why it is so important to you. Weighing out the positives and negatives of the task and its benefits for you, can make you decide and perform better.
  4. Attempt to take a break: For those who procrastinate out of having worked too much, it does not mean you have to complete the task at once. This is known as the "sunk cost bias." The "sunk cost bias" influences players, speculators, and even a procrastinator. They feel that the task will need to be completed now and cannot be completed in the future. In some cases, a task simply does not mean you have to work on it more and more after hours.
  5. Go easy on yourself: To beat procrastination, you should be strict with yourself. However, that is not what science says. In case that you have procrastinated till now, you will probably begin on time going ahead. You need to show yourself some sympathy for your previous laziness instead of thrashing yourself about it.

Self-control is an important quality many successful individuals have. Having self-control permits you to carefully understand why you are procrastinating and can likewise, work towards it. When you understand why you are doing so, it will be easier for you to make a plan to beat it. This will allow you to see the underlying cause of your problem as well. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 22 my brother 29 , he always insults me ,hurt me, think I am his enemy. Everyday we are fighting. I am tired for all of this. I wanna relief, trying suicide. But I am not enough strong to do it. My marriage is fixed in 2017. My father is dead. My mom , me n my brother stay in our house. When i'm sad , do not know why I am trying to committed suicide. I love my family but why my brother think that I am his enemy. Trying to rule over him. please help me.

Nobody should have the power to make you commit suicide. Your life is extremely precious and if your brother likes to bully, only you can allow him to bully you. In other words, you can be disturbed about it or just laugh it off. However, since your marriage is coming up soon why let him have any power over you. Be patient and get married peacefully and then you will be far away from your brother. He may be jealous of you for some reason or maybe he is missing his father and is expressing his anger towards you. Since the father is not there to control him, he may be losing control over himself for various reasons. Tell him about that and see what his reaction is. Talk to mom to intervene too. But do not​ take your life, it is precious to you.
