Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hello, I am taking benadryl as a sleep aid since 4 years and due to depression and stress I increased my dose upto 150 ml a day. I want to know the side effects.

Hi lybrate-user, There are treatments without medication to completely overcome depression and stress, why do not you undergo treatment and counselling. Do not use Benadryl for other symptoms. There is a well known proverb that is "Too much of anything is good for nothing" Benadryl overdose causes sedation, tiredness, dry mouth, nose and tongue, loss of coordination, blurred vision and many more. Addiction to anything will weaken your physique, your skin tone, your youthfulness will vanish slowly. Why instead undergo treatment and counselling. If interested contact me for an online consultation so that I could help you better and overcome your problem without any side effects. Take care. Do not use such ways to solve your problem, it is not good for health. Ofcourse depression and stress are normal among others, I do not know exactly what is your problem, if you feel free to discuss this issue, you are most welcome. Take care. Life is short we need to experience both happiness and sadness in life, we cannot run away from natural happenings in our life, but what we can prevent, we can, but not everything. It is part and parcel of our living in this advanced modern world. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Please note the following for your condition: The head should be massaged slowly with oil or shampoo while bathing or cleaning hairs resulting blood circulation becomes fast and the skin of the head is protected from dryness. Shampoo should be used only two times a week. Hairs should be washed with curd for removing dandruff. Spicy or fried foodstuffs should not be eaten. Excessive cream or jell should not be applied on hairs. Please also take Nux vom - once daily at night. For further queries get back to me.

Marital Problems That Can Affect A Relationship!

Marital Problems That Can Affect A Relationship!

Every couple, married or unmarried, has their share of ups and downs. It is through these thorns that they find their bed of roses. A little salt and a little sugar are what makes a marriage sweet and enduring. Where there is love, there will be fights and tussles. The problems arise when things get blown out of proportion. Some of the complications have the potential to spell doom in their marital life. Mentioned below are such marital problems that couples often go through:

  1. Trust that goes for a toss: Trust is an important thread that holds a relationship together. Without this, a relationship is as good as dead. Some couples (either one or both the partners) have trust issues. They are just not able to trust their partners. To make things worse, in some cases, the distrust is influenced by no genuine reasons. If there is any problem, discuss the matter with your partner rather than brooding over it. A small act of yours can go a long way to normalize things and thus save the marriage.
  2. Stress, a menace best avoided: Stress, both personal as well as professional can affect you and your marital life in ways you can’t even imagine. In addition to the general physical and mental health, stress and anxiety can also have an impact on your sexual life. Work related stress is quite normal but don’t let that affect your personal life. Take a short break when the stress gets unbearable. A fresh and relaxed mind and body are what is needed to bring the spark back in your life (marital life, to be more precise).
  3. Do not suffocate with love: Love is what got you both together. Don't let that be the reason for the discord. Your partner means the world to you, but they also have a world of their own. The sooner you understand this, the better it is. Most of the problems in a marriage stem from this lack of space. The relationship is no longer healthy. It causes a lot of stress and anxiety in the relationship. Give your partner the space that they deserve. Your relationship will grow from strength to strength.
  4. When ego wins over your love: Ego can wreak havoc in your marital life. Ego is like a poison that can spoil your relationship even before you can realize it. While giving each other space is important, spending quality time together is also essential for a healthy relationship. Many people keep themselves so busy that they start drifting away from their partner. Many people after marriage start taking their partners for granted. This attitude can be dangerous for your relationship. For a successful marriage, mutual respect is important.

If you and your partner are unable to solve the differences, go for professional help. A counseling on time can help save a beautiful relationship from biting the dust. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Hi, Modalert tablet is used for concentration? Methods to improve concentration for exam?

Dear user, 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. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects 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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I am taking vilazine 40 .can I drink occasionally alcohol? Could it effects my libido?

I am taking vilazine 40 .can I drink occasionally alcohol? Could it effects my libido?
Hi, Vilazodone (Active ingredient in Vilazine) is an antidepressant. There is usually no serious interaction with small amounts of alcohol. However, alcohol has direct effect on some Mental Illnesses (particularly anxiety disorders) and your treating Psychiatrist will be in a better position to answer if there is any potential for deterioration of the underlying illness for which Vilazodone has been prescribed. It can decrease libido in few cases. However, Depression is more common culprit for decreased libido and in majority of the cases it actually improves libido. Best wishes.

Suicidal thoughts is a dangerous thought. In that case it is better to attend psychological counselling sessions. May be you are suffering from depressive thoughts. It is better to take the help of psychologist. Develop busy schedule. Do not keep secrets inside. It is better to share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Do not maintain aloneness. It is very dangerous thing for you. Concentrate on your study plan. Develop good goal on your future aspects. Better to maintain friendliness all others. Be optimistic all the time. Develop positive on life situations. Read inspirational books. Better to engage with others most of the time. When negative thought comes divert the thought in to other aspects. Do not think too much about past things and events. When thought comes do other work. Do not maintain all the time one place. Move the place time to time. Be busy all the time. Share your feelings to every one. Be enjoy all the time. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.
