I think I need psychiatrist help. I have a love related problem. Previously I had a girlfriend 4years back. We broke up for misunderstanding. And moved on. I was serious so still have soft corner. Now am in a new relation for last two years. And happy with it. But recently my ex-gf contacted. And we had light chit chat. And decided to met. And yesterday we met and came little bit too close. Now she is creating pressure on me to do something and be with her. But I dnt wanna cheat my present girlfriend. What should I do? How can I manage?

You will have to take a stand. If you want to continue with your present relationship then its better to close off the past. There is no point in reading the same book over and over again again when you know its end. If you do not see a future with your past girlfriend then you should be assertive enough about it and tell it to her. If you are yourself in a hitch then consult a counsellor or psychiatrist personally to clarify your issues.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

If you take medicine then argument with your husband it will not give any result. Problems remained next day also. You are under stress. Stress may cause depression in depression you may fight with your husband. Better to consult psychologist. First you should come from depressive status. Then you relaxed after that better to communicate with yourself. Lovely conversation may minimise your problems. It may cure your depressive status also. It is in your hands. If we are not unable to avoid the relations. It is better to love them. Take steps to come the status from your side. It is happen your lovingness only. Not on your commands. Ok do not depend on medicine. Change yourself. If you change it is ok. If unable then take the help of professional. Please unable to spoil the present status to bad situations. Do not be welcome to sadness. Make the life happy. Enjoy the present movements with your husband in a positive manner. Best wishes.

My Father is alcoholic and is addicted to it, can there be some medicine or powder/drops by which I could help him out by getting rid about it without actually letting him know about medications.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Please understand there are no such medicines which can be given to the patient unknowingly and will be able to cure alcohol craving. I am sorry. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Usually it takes 2-3 weeks to get adapted to medicine. Don't stop it all at once, you can have adverse effects more.

Dear Puja, i am not sure that Gaurav is suffering from clinical depression. Depression may be a part of some other neurological illness. Probably that is why Cognistar was prescribed. Find out his diagnosis clearly. Any drug has to be weighed for its benefit vs harm. There is no drug which is absolutely safe. So will be Cognistar.

I can't concentrate on my study. I am CA student. My age is 18 years. Suggest me what to do.

CBT, Master in Family Counselling
Psychologist, Gurgaon
Find out distractions and remove them from your study area. While studying mention on a paper how many times you are getting distracted. Then try to focus again on the topic. As soon as you get that your mind is going somewhere else just come back to study. If you practice it you will be able to overcome it.

Hello, Having a healthy diet with fresh fruits & avoiding junk food, getting 7-8 hours of adequate sleep, is essential while preparing for examinations. Also because of exam anxiety, you might be feeling difficult to concentrate. Often our body has physical reactions like aches & pains due to anxiety. So you can use some relaxation techniques like deep breathing.

How can I quit smoking? I am a chain smoker since 2012. Are there any ayurvedic medicine to help me ito quit smoking. I am very much worried.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all 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 Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

I feel sometimes lonely & despondent with life. During recession I had a very difficult time and have suffered losses.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You also suffer from schizophrenia, and should be on medication. I guess you stopped medicines on your own. This indicates that you do not cooperate with the doctor?s prescription. This is really dangerous and can lead to a lot of uncontrolled reactions. The loss in the recession is the least of the concerns. This is an incurable disease and medication is very effective in helping you to live a normal life. Please meet a psychiatrist immediately and let him review your condition to see what will work for you now. Depression, loneliness and despondency can all confuse the situation and appear to be independent of the primary disease. Don?t fool yourself and delay what can turn out to be debilitating in the long run and that incapacitate you forever.

I am 20 years old with 4. 9 height girl now a days I am getting depressed. how to overcome this?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
We would need more information like since when, depressed about what, what are your symptoms etc to help you. Yet it will be good if you see a counsellor and psychiatrist in your city. However, in depression, it is suggested that you look at the positive side of things, find meaning in whatever you consider as a loss to you, exercise a lot, take a walk in the sun, have friends and a social life who are funny, cheerful and progressive, eat healthy food, sleep on time and get up on time, have a daily plan of activities and make sure that you achieve most of it. Negative thinking needs to be challenged with counter thoughts that bring in contradicting evidence. Take support of your family or friends to come out of depression as its difficult to remain self motivated. Yoga, meditation, ayurveda, homeopathy also help a lot in depression without any side effects.

I always shake my legs when I am thinking, now even when I am typing this question I am losing my concentration and my shaking legs indicates me about that. Please help me to overcome this habit. I am tired of lack of concentration and restless legs, whenever I think or I am in stress I daydream or my mind wanders and my leg starts shaking, I even can't sleep due to my mind or restless legs. I am most of time in dreams or in other world.

Your symptoms show anxiety. Please talk to a counsellor. You need to identify what all is going on in your mind and is hampering your routine life. The counsellor will help you in identifying your issues and also will help you to cope with it. Shaking legs is a reflexive action for anxiety. Whenever you notice, that you are shaking your legs, make a conscious effort to stop it. Keep a book or something on you lap, so the moment you start shaking your legs it will fall, and you will be aware of it and then make conscious effort to stop it. About the habit of" day dreaming" and sleeslessness, behaviour therapy will help you. Kindly talk to a counsellor.

Dear, This may not be totally medically proved fact however in my alternative practice, I ha e seen complaints like these improving after aura detox meditation. We have field of energy around us which gets contaminated by negativity and adverse thought energies. Aura cleansing through guided imagery meditation technique could give you immediate benefit. No harm in trying it out.
