Dear Lybrate user. There is no such good or bad anti-depression medicines as you mentioned. A particular drug gives good results for one person and the same gives a different result in another person. That's why the follow up by the same doctor is always encouraged. The Doctor Who prescribed the medicines can effectively evaluate the desired/undedired results of the drugs and modify or change the dosages and medicines accordingly in order to get the best results. Please keep in touch with your psychiatrist periodically.

BACH FLOWER REMEDY- MIXTURE FOR EXAMS/ EXAM FEAR/ EXAM STRESS

CERTIFICATION IN BACH FLOWER REMEDIES OF ENGLAND, Ph.D DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN BIOCHEMISTRY, B.S.M.S BACHELOR OF SIDDHA MEDICINE AND SURGERY,
Alternative Medicine Specialist,
BACH FLOWER REMEDY- MIXTURE FOR EXAMS/ EXAM FEAR/ EXAM STRESS

The mixture is made with these flowers:

Clematis: for a better concentration

Chestnut bud: to better remember things

Gentian: not to respond when in front of an unexpected situation

Elm: for a surplus of care that an exam requires

Larch: to have confidence in your abilities

Some of my ideas that may help you customizing this mixture:

Mimulus: if you're scared about the exam or if you're shy

Impatiens: especially useful towards the end of the studying process and during the days before an exam, if you're afraid that you might not have enough time to study or if you can't wait for the exam

White chestnut: when your mind always goes to the things that you're studying or when you can't stop thinking about the exam itself. This mixture for the exam is very useful. But don't forget to study.

Intelligent boy is not scoring marks -

Is there any fear of exam? (Mimulus)

Does he forget during the exam but remember after the exam? (Scleranthus)

Or is he going blank and forgetting the answer? (white chestnut)

Or does he not have enough time? (elm)

Or feeling shaky while reading the question paper? (rescue remedy)

Or making silly mistakes and getting fewer marks. (impatiens)

Is he sitting to study putting the required efforts? (oak)

Or not sitting to study in the house? (chestnut bud)

You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

To be very frank, if you have the will there will be a way. Make up your mind and all other things will fall in place automatically. Stop making excuses and face the reality. Be honest to accept all your weaknesses and commit yourself to work sincerely. Give your best and keep improving on a daily basis. Don't under estimate yourself. Don't degrade your self esteem. Slowly and studily work upon your weak points and then you will pick up speed in no time and excel in what ever you do! have faith in your self!

I sm feeling depressed dance my mother passed in 2014. How I need to overcome this.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Sometimes suddenly I got angry so what is the reason for that? What should I do to not get angry.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not not get angry. Anger is a good feeling if harnessed well. In fact all feelings are good feelings and they are there to tell us to rectify something that is not going well. The cardinal rule to feelings is the expressions of them. All feelings must be expressed without exception. If you do not they will get internalized and harm the particular organ it has chosen to express itself in. Now there is a problem if you are getting angry suddenly, too fast or without reason. These are signs that there has been some problem in the past and that the concerned feeling has not be dealt with by expression. Sometimes by suppressing anger over the years you may be carrying an overload of unexpressed anger that will come out in impulses and with the least of provocations. These piled up emotions must be dealt with even now and after you have relieved yourself of past feelings you will be able to handle current ones with a lot of ease. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such speed, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage. Anyway anger management classes will be still beneficial for you.

I can not remember many more time about study I am in engineering please tell me at 10 th standard I remember all thing I got more marks but. At this time I can't remember.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Some years ago it might have been easy but as you grow up various distractions will disturb you. Meet with a counselor and sort out those disturbances effectively. In the meantime do the following: 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Hi, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety recently by a psychologist. He prescribes me only medications and no therapy but I think they are dangerous and have many side effects. Should I discontinue treatment?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
First of all psychiatrists can only prescribe medications, psychologist cannot as they are not doctors. If psychiatrist has prescribed you medication it means that your condition needs it. You have not mentioned what medicines have been prescribed but most of the medicines to treat anxiety or depression are pretty safe and not many side effects. So you can safely take them.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are into an anger related depression and need immediate help. Suicide has never been a solution at any time. Kindly, refrain from such thoughts itself and do talk to someone who can help you. Life is extremely precious and is a gift from God. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.

If we talk in terms of Ayurveda, all these are signs of Imbalanced VATA and PITTA of body. Thus he doesn't have control over his thoughts and actions. He need to change all his lifestyle and eating pattern. But if he is not willing to follow these, we can start with Some Himalyan herbs, in a couple of week as the balance will rise his aggressiveness, weight, habit of taking drinks and smoking will gradually reduce of his own, you need not to ask him to stop anything.

If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication.

If you have lost someone close to your heart, then you are in lot of pain. It is natural, to think about that person and the memories will keep flooding your mind. Give yourself more time to accept the loss. Now that the person has gone away you need to live your life without that person. This reality itself might be hard for you to accept. Please share/express your feelings about that person, with other people in your life, who can support you emotionally. Try to think about all the good times you shared with this person. Don't try to avoid/block your memories, it will not help. Let yourself go through the pain of losing that person. If you feel like crying, please do cry. Give proper outlet to your emotions. If you are angry, sad, frustrated, guilty talk about it. After relieving yourself of these emotions you will feel lighter. Slowly, you will learn to invest again in your life and move on. All the best and take care.
