Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You must forgive him. If you don't and continuously doubt him, he will feel bad and there are chances of depression and other problems. Please forgive him. I need to talk to you in detail. Please talk to your husband in this regard. I suggest online family counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

What are severe side effects of propranolol hydrochloride on heart? I took the medicine non stop for 2 months. I took it for migraine pain. The dosage was 2 times a day daily. The medicine concentration was 40 mg.

Dear Lybrate user...Propranolol is a beta blocker and is commonly used for migraine prophylaxis. Its recommended dose for migraine prophylaxis can be as high as 120 to 160 mg per day. Its normal action on heart is to decrease the heart rate, but at a dose of 80 mg it is less likely to cause a significant damage. Rest differs from patient to patient and the clinical decision has to be individualized. Take care

Nobody can force you to do anything against your wish. You need to be open to discuss anything with anyone: it does not mean that whatever is discussed is going to be forced onto you. After everybody has said thier piece, you will always be in a better position to agree or disagree based on some facts that were discussed. For example, if you claim you are not prepared for marriage, you will need to substantiate that statement with some facts and figures. In a state of depression you will not be receptive or concessionary, and that will affect your ability to be receptive. So for the depression please meet with a counselor and/or doctor. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice to see that you have openly expressed your situation. Each individual has his or her own likes / dislikes hobbies, interests. Invest some time in your self and develop your own long term and short term goals. Try to live your life according to the goals you have set for your self. During the course of your life you will come across some people with whom you will have common interests or with whom you can share your feelings. Develop friendship and relationships with such people. Always remember that the other person is also looking for some one to talk to or share his/ her feelings. Being a good listener will give you an opportunity to meet up with such people. Wishing you all the best!

Hi One of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take sarpgandha vati 1-1 tab twice a day. Take pranacharya no tens capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid spicy food. Junk food. Fermented food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early in the morning.

I am a 26 year old male. Lately I've been feeling unhappy, I have a good paying job, a good girlfriend, family but despite all this I don't feel the energy and happiness I used to feel. My mind is on a constant thinking mode and it never stops, I don't sleep well I don't feel like eating much (less than how it used to be earlier). My head feels heavy and I never feel fresh and not energetic. Also I don't feel anything, I feel numb to most of the things around me. Is it depression or any other r disease? How can I be normal? Please help.

Hi, Its is advised you show yourself to a psychiatrist your symptoms point out towards mild depression and it has nothing to do with having everything going perfect in life. It can happen to anyone just like BP, Sugar etc. The earlier its treated the better it is. Apart from that consult a psychologist for psychotherapy who will help you to manage your stress as a result of depression. I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice it daily 15 minutes morning evening or whenever your consciousness is clouded with thoughts.

How to overcome from fear?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
How to overcome from fear?
Try gradual desensitization. Oftentimes we're afraid of something because we haven't been exposed to it very much" fear of the unknown" is a commonly used phrase to describe the automatic aversion people feel to something that's different. If you're afraid of something because it's a mystery, try exposing yourself to it in small doses until you gain a better understanding and your fear begins to dissipate. If you're afraid of spiders, start by looking at a badly drawn doodle of a spider done in silly colors. When you can look at that cartoon and control your reaction, move up to photos of spiders. Then try cleaning up dead spiders. As you gain confidence working through each stage of proving to yourself that you can control your phobia, it will diminish until you no longer feel it as anything but a twinge in the most extreme circumstances. If you're afraid of something less concrete, like change, start by slightly changing up your daily routine. Add a morning run every other day, or take the bus instead of driving to work. You'll begin to see that you're capable of handling what life throws at you, and the confidence you'll build will help you deal with bigger life changes.

I am mentally stressed and getting angry quick.

I am mentally stressed and getting angry quick.
Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I can help you with the tips and tricks. Take care.

I've noticed a developing tremor in my left arm over the last month that I've never had before, and it can get distracting enough to prevent daily tasks such as making coffee without spilks, and I've had a verbal stammering and stuttering problem. It's not severe, but I've become easily annoyed by small, simple tasks in my life and I'm uncertain what caused the onset. Is this an immediate concern, or one I can consult my family doctor about?

You must consult your doctor. These are not normal symptoms. Apart from the doctor please do meet with a counselor. At your age a lot of things could happen around hormonal imbalances and also from developmental issues that will come up for the last time seeking a resolution. Together they can compound matters to make you feel disturbed. But whatever the case tumors must never be neglected.

How we can improve our memory power? Please tell me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
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 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.

Hi. I'm 24 yr old woman. I was in relationship with a guy for abt 9 months. We both loved each other. But now only I came to know he is already married. So I had ended up the relationship with him. But I feel very bad abt myself. I'm not a type of person to love a married man. Really I don't know tat he is already married. If I had known before itself means I would not have spoken with him. Daily i'm crying. I feel like I want to commit suicide. Becoz I loved a married man. I always having the feeling of committing suicide. How to get rid of this thought. Please help me.

Sounds like you are very angry with yourself. It is okay to be angry with yourself for having being fooled around by this guy. Then you need to express it to someone, like you have done to me and the matter is over. I really admire you for breaking up with this guy after knowing that he is married. It is very difficult to be in love and then discover that you were deceived all this time. But you have done really well to be able to quit the relationship on the discovery. Now pick up the pieces and make good of your life. It was that guy who deceived you and he should feel all the guilt, not you. So be proud that you did the right thing and that you did not deceive anyone yourself. Do not be harsh on yourself and your life is very precious. No man is more important than your life. Get rid of all reminders of this fellow and do not frequent places, situations, or company that you used to keep with this guy for some time. Talk to someone else also if you need to, and go and do some vigorous exercise every day, and be proud yourself. I am.
