General Physician,
I facing some issues like worries, tension, over thinking, perfectionism and unfocused.
ou need to have mind control and do meditaion and yoga and also contact me with more details for more help. Take care of yourself Connect with others. Loneliness and isolation set the stage for anxiety. Decrease your vulnerability by reaching out to others. Make it a point to see friends, join a self-help or support group, or share your worries and concerns with a trusted loved one. Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and deep breathing can reduce anxiety symptoms and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Exercise regularly. Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise on most days. Get enough sleep. A lack of sleep can exacerbate anxious thoughts and feelings, so try to get seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. If you struggle with sleep, adopting smart sleep habits can make a big difference. Be smart about caffeine and alcohol. If you struggle with anxiety, you may want to consider reducing your caffeine intake or cutting it out completely. Same with alcohol, which can make anxiety worse. Train your brain to stay calm. Worrying is a mental habit you can learn how to break. Strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging anxious thoughts, and learning to accept uncertainty can significantly reduce anxiety and fear.

Occasional smoke will not affect on ejaculation. 10 stokes it is a maximum stroke you done. Divert the mind towards other things. When you give strokes. Practice stop ad start technique. Then this problem will be solved. Do maximum time with two stokes. You have very good capacity. But you are not utilizing in a proper manner. Better to divert mind. Do not use any medication. You may addicted. After without medicine you are unable to perform so better to control yourself. Practice some techniques. Ok best of luck.

After drinking alcohol he feels as if he his body is someone else's. So what should he do? Should he STOP drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, either drink does not agree with him or he is drinking too much and has been for too long. This effect that you describe does not means that he is just getting drunk, it means that he is getting partially psychotic with the effect. In time he could get what is called 'toxic psychosis' and that could be trouble. Advise him to stop immediately and he will return to normal soon and he will not be pushing for a mental break down.

Dear doctor we have come to know that estrogen (estradiol) supply to brain may boost neuron plasticity and regeneration. Please help us by advising the way to supply this female hormone that can cure schizophrenia and the dose. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Rajinder, Schizophrenia is not just neuron plasticity or regeneration. It is due to many complex neurochemicals' imbalances in brain. So estrogens have not yet come into the clinical treatment of schizophrenia. In order to find a cure for schizophrenia, plenty of things are tried in lab or on animals or even humans. Many of them give optimistic findings in lab or animals. The same may not be found in persons suffering from schizophrenia. Right now, it is long term anti-psychotics and other psycho-social methods, are the treatment.

Dear Lybrate user. This is just fear factor. Movies are able to influence the psychological thought pattern of a person. But you must have noticed the intensity of the feeling comes down with each passing flight. Don't worry. This "final destination" feeling will calm down after some time. Take care.

You have a nervous disposition based on extreme fear. This may have originated sometime during childhood but it probably got activated during adolescence, looking for a resolution. Since it was not handled or resolved, it will continue to trouble you for a long time. You seem to get close to panic attacks, especially if there is a social situation and expectation. Talk to your parents and ask them, if they remember any incident or events in childhood that may have been the cause for your nervousness. Then take them and visit a psychiatrist and describe all the symptoms and your life history. S/he may want to know the family history up to three generations to further investigate the genetic contribution too. Please follow the prescription strictly. Meanwhile do get counseling along with the medication. You must eat healthy food, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Do a personality development course, and attend a Toastmasters club near you to develop your public speaking skills. Check with your doctor for any vitamin deficiency. Your emotions are not to be controlled. They are to be in fact expressed every time and as soon as possible. You will need to control your behavior around the feeling. The more your feelings are expressed the better balance you will be in. If you read a book entitled, Emotional Intelligence’ by Daniel Goleman you will understand how expressing feelings actually improve your performance and well being, including your intelligence. There is no exception to expressing feelings. The only exception is when the feeling is so inappropriate. Many times because we want to look good and do not want to offend others, we cover up our emotions. When you do this, the emotion will find a favorite organ and express itself into that organ and lead to its malfunction or total dysfunction. Sometimes you may have to even remove the organ. So emotions can give life or even take it. The solution: always express your feelings in appropriate ways.

Patterns of Drug Abuse

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Sexologist, Mumbai
Patterns of Drug Abuse

In order to determine whether a person is having a drug problem, there are several signs, which can be interpreted to know about the exact drug abuse state of a person. Drug abuse requires immediate attention before it becomes more problematic. There are several patterns and stages of drug use that have been listed below:

  1. Hard drug use: Heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine fall under the category of hard drugs and are the most dangerous drugs. There are severe effects on the health and behavior of a user of hard drugs. Some people use these kinds of drugs for recreational purposes, but some can get addicted just after using them once. Such people usually isolate themselves from society and possess a high-risk behavior.
  2. Frequent drug use: Frequency alone cannot determine whether a person is addicted to a certain drug. Some people may take drugs only once and twice a week, but still suffer from acute addiction. Frequency of drug use may indicate tolerance and a person may require more with each day. Frequent drug users usually keep on continuing the habit and it is hard for them to quit.
  3. Early drug use: Some people start taking drugs at an early age during adolescence, and they are likely to develop severe drug problems later in life. People who take drugs before the age of fifteen turn out to be addicts as they grow up. The earlier a person uses drugs, the earlier he becomes addicted. Early drug use is a common phenomenon in today's world.
  4. Solitary drug use: Using drugs and addictive substances while a person is alone may result in fatal addiction and various problems in life. Teenagers using alcohol, marijuana and cigarettes are prone to serious drug problems during adulthood. Solitary drug users are usually poor in studies and have a violent or abusive behavior.
  5. Escapist drug use: Many people use drugs for dealing with stress, several problems in life or for building self esteem. These are used as a substitute for escapism, which allows a person to escape from reality to a place where nothing bothers them and they can be at peace. Such people are likely to develop drug problems. Some people may experiment with drugs just for the sake of trying, but slowly they may like it and get addicted. This causes several problems in life, and a drug problem arises. Such drug problems may affect the health in many severe ways.

Drugs are used in several patterns. All people do not use drugs in the same pattern and frequency. The pattern of drug use by a person lets the doctor determine the level of drug abuse he is on, or if he is addicted.

Hai I'm 21 years old I'm smoking 4- 6 cigarettes daily but I feel that I can't do any heavy work like running and gym workouts will you please give solution to quite smoking.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Recommended - proper treatment is essential for this problem Homeopathic treatment is best, safe and effective for this Problem, - Caladium - 200 Morning before meal, Tabacaum - 200 afternoon before meal. Then let me know the results after 15 days through private chat on Lybrate. Reasons why people start to use tobacco: -On a dare to show that you are not timid or afraid. -To fit with the crowd (all my friends do it) -To appear sophisticated or cool -To be grown-up -To assert your independence -As a sign of protest, rebellion, or to defy authority -Free samples from friends or advertisers -Influences from people you respect and admire -Parents or relatives smoked -Images of famous actors, movie stars, or role models -Famous sports players who use chewing tobacco or smoking cigarettes. -Famous scientists (Einstein is the prototype of intellectual smokers. -He looks so proud with a pipe in his mouth.) -Portrayals by cigarette advertisements -To calm your nerves -As a kind of “air freshener” when using the toilet -Adverse effects of Smoking. -Heart disease. Smoking is responsible for 30 percent of all heart attacks and cardiovascular deaths. -Cancer. It is responsible for 30 percent of all cancer deaths and 87 percent of lung cancer deaths each year. -Lung problems. Smoking is responsible for 82 percent of deaths due to emphysema and chronic bronchitis. -Smoking delays healing of peptic ulcers of the stomach and duodenum. - Its effects on blood vessels cause chronic pains in the legs (claudication) which can progress to gangrene and amputations of the toes or feet. -Causes wrinkling of the skin of the face to develop earlier in chronic smokers. On average they look 5 years older than non-smokers of the same age do. -It impairs erections in middle-aged and older men and may affect the quality of their sperm. It seems to “sedate” sperm and to impair their motility. This is reversed after stopping smoking. -Smoking accelerates the rate of osteoporosis, a disease which causes bones to weaken and fracture more easily.

All About Forensic Psychiatry

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
All About Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is generally identified as a specialized offshoot of psychiatry, dealing with the calculated treatment and evaluation of mentally disordered offenders in secure hospitals, prisons and in the community. This branch of psychiatry requires an indepth understanding and thorough knowledge of the connection between legality and mental health. 

Patients of Forensic Psychiatry, generally are affected with personality dysfunctions, mental illness, psychopathic disorders, organic brain damage, learning disability and other conditions, such as histories of abuse and traumatic experiences as well as substance abuse and misuse.

Nature of the work
The most important prerequisite of this branch of psychiatry is a secure and safe environment where the subjects are liable to legal restrictions. Evaluation and assessment may vary from highly secured hospitals and prisons to low secure units and community based services. Forensic psychiatrists must have a thorough knowledge of civil, criminal and case law because of their frequent dealings with criminal justice agencies and the courts. 

An important component of Forensic Psychiatry is risk assessment and evaluation. Forensic psychiatrists must be fluent and adept at handling patients during emergencies or routine situations. Moreover, they should be calm, composed and professional in their dealings, especially with patients who display instability or violent and aggressive behavior.

The probation service, the prison service and the courts generally rely on forensic psychiatrists for expert advice, precisely because of their familiarity with preparing reports for mental health review tribunals and criminal justice agencies.

Imperatives: 

  1. Quintessentially, the obligatory role of a forensic psychiatrist requires:
  2. Ability to treat others with understanding and respect
  3. Ability to work flexibly
  4. Emotional resilience along with the ability to empathize with patients
  5. Anticipation and an inherent initiative to work in challenging situations
  6. Good communication skills
  7. A scientific and analytic approach and assessment
  8. Good leadership qualities

Loss of interest in anything makes you lazy and you may have sleeping problems also. Plan your life and have an objective in your life. It will make you feel good about yourself. After planning your objective you feel energetic and focused. Once you planned your objective or aim, you list out your execution plans for your objective. This will bring back your concentration.
