Hi lybrate-user, Despite some antidepressants’ sexual side effects, your best option for overcoming depression and its negative effects on sex is to get treatment. Beyond medication, you may want to try non-pharmaceutical methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (a treatment method that addresses negative thoughts while supporting positive behaviors). It may not be an immediate fix, but it’s a worthwhile approach to managing both depression and sex problems. Also, Preliminary research suggests that 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity may be just the libido enhancer you need. In fact, exercise can boost both your emotional health and your sex drive. Exercise gets your blood moving, releases some of the mood-enhancing chemicals that come along with a good workout, and gets your bod into better shape (making you feel better about yourself, too). Anxiety, low self-esteem, and guilt are common causes of erectile dysfunction. Its advised to seek psychotherapy from a psychologist online or in person. All the best.

How can l increase my memory? I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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.

My depression don't end what should I do
my mediation daily morning eating -Venlor-xr 75 mg.
Venlor xr 75 mg only in the morning is an inadequate dose. In other words, at the doses you are taking, the medicine will not do the job that it is supposed to. Atleast 150 mg and possibly upto 300 mg will be needed. Please consult your psychiatrist for dose adjustment. Take care!

How to remove stress?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
How to remove stress?
Dear , Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear, In my opinion, smoking is easy to quit. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. Weird Eating habits are always due to some nutritional deficiency. Eating clay is due to iron deficiency. Do get your blood checked for iron and take the necessary treatment through iron supplements. Take care.

I can not concentrate on one aim. I am confused about my choice, my goal. I am still searching myself.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please do an aptitude test and go for career counseling to a qualified counselor and get proper guidance for your future. You will get out of this dilemma soon and will be able to concentrate on building your life in the right direction. You may not get to finalize the ultimate goal but since that is a work in continuous progress you will get to modify goals as you go along. But it is important to identify your current goal and settle down with all your efforts and energy focussed on that particular end. You will be at peace and your inputs will reward you with pleasant results.

All about depression

Depression is a major public health problem as a leading predictor of functional disability and mortality.
Optimal depression treatment improves outcome for most patients.
Most adults with clinical significant depression never see a mental health professional but they often see a primary care physician.
A non?psychiatric physician 50% of times misses the diagnosis of the depression.
All depressed patients must be enquired specifically about suicidal ideations.
Suicidal ideation is a medical emergency
Risk factors for suicide are psychiatric known disorders, medical illness, prior history of suicidal attempts or family history of attempted suicide.
The demographic reasons include older age, male gender, marital status (widowed or separated) and living alone.
About 1 million people commit suicide every year globally.
Around 79% of patients who commit suicide contact their primary care provider in the last one year before their death and only one-third contact their mental health service provider.
Twice as many suicidal victims had contacted their primary care provider as against the mental health provider in the last month before suicide.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death worldwide and accounts for 1.2% of all deaths.
The suicide rate in the US is 10.5 per 100,000 people.
In the US, suicide is increasing in middle aged adults.
There are 10?40 non?fatal suicide attempts for every one completed suicide.
The majority of suicides completed in US are accomplished with fire arm (57%), the second leading method of suicide in US is hanging for men and poisoning in women.
Patients with prior history of attempted suicide are 5?6 times more likely to make another attempt.
Fifty percent of successful victims have made prior attempts.
One of every 100 suicidal attempt survivors will die by suicide within one year of the first attempt.
The risk of suicide increases with increase in age; however, young adults and adolescents attempt suicide more than the older.
Females attempt suicide more frequently than males but males are successful three times more often.
The highest suicidal rate is amongst those individuals who are unmarried followed by those who are widowed, separated, divorced, married without children and married with children in descending order.
Living alone increases the risk of suicide.
Unemployed and unskilled patients are at higher risk of suicide than those who are employed.
A recent sense of failure may lead to higher risk.
Clinicians are at higher risk of suicide.
The suicidal rate in male clinicians is 1.41 and in female clinicians it is 2.27.
Adverse childhood abuse and adverse childhood experiences increase the risk of suicidal attempts.
The first step in evaluating suicidal risk is to determine presence of suicidal thoughts including their concerns and duration.

Panicked About Trivial Matters? You Might be Suffering from an Anxiety Disorder!

An anxiety disorder is characterized by a constant feeling of fear, worry or unease. While it is absolutely normal to feel anxious over certain matters like landing up a job interview or cracking the toughest exam, being anxious all the time for no rhyme or reason can be troublesome.

In certain psychiatric anomalies such as panic disorders, social anxiety disorder and various phobias, anxiety is one of the primary symptoms and causes. Anxiety disorder is usually a long term disorder that results in one feeling unnecessarily anxious about different events, no matter how trivial they are.

Causes behind it

The exact cause of anxiety disorder is not yet ascertained. There are several factors that can trigger anxiety disorder, some of them being:

1. Drug and alcohol abuse

2. Over-activity in certain areas of the brain that deal with behavior and emotions

3. Genetic defects

4. Chemical imbalance in the brain involving serotonin and noradrenaline which regulates mood

5. Chronic health conditions such as arthritis.

Signs you should look for

The symptoms of anxiety disorder are classified into physical and psychological symptoms. The psychological symptoms involve irritability, a feeling of restlessness and a constant feeling of being on the edge. Social withdrawal symptoms are also commonly observed.

The physical symptoms of anxiety disorder comprise of breathing difficulties, muscle pain, dizziness and fatigue.

How it can be treated

Some treatments for anxiety disorder are:

  1. Medications: Medications such as antidepressants are prescribed to get rid of anxiety disorder

Hi I am a mother of 2, an architect but have never had a constant job. Gave up for all the family reasons like kids, care for elders, family etc. My husband is into business but he is never had a constant source of income. He is from the past 5 years dependent on my family, sometimes he earns or borrows from his family and takes care of his needs. Me and my kids my family is supporting us. My family thinks I should leave him because of this and am not sure as my younger one is attached to her father and not sure how she will take it. He manipulates kids emotions to suit his will, so am scared if something goes wrong. Also, have been trying to start something, have been unsuccessful. Need to really get out this rut, please help.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Dear friend, from what ever you have told so far, I understand that it must be very tough for you to manage and hold everything together so far. Also my perception is that you are not only smart, intelligent, loving and caring but you are also strong woman. I think I am safe in believing that your husband, for what ever reason is not willing to work hard and earn to support himself and his family. I would not be surprised if he is an addict (drinking or something other). (if this is not the case, then you need to take him to a psychologist or counselor for help and support, as he might be depressed due to multiple unsuccessful attempt in his business. If he has support and love, he can bounce back and you all could have your happy life back.) if he has chosen not to work and live on others' income and support, it is best if you separate from him and start your independent life. Of course as you know this is a major decision and needs to be taken after thinking thoroughly and with due preparation. I would suggest you to start your on business. As you have your family's support, it will be relatively easy to start working and getting financial independence. It may take some time but during this time, you need to think pros and cones of leaving your husband. How your life will be different and what kind of help and support you might need and how could you make sure you have it this is also a good time to slowly talk to your kids and prepare them for the situation. You may tell them your perspective and tell them they will be able to continue their relationship with their father. Telling lot of negative things about your husband is not a good idea because then they will be confused and if they believe what you are saying then they might also believe what your husband tells them. It is always a good practice to be honest and authentic and focus more on how you both independently are good human being but together you are not helping each other and you are not happy together. Hence, you have decided to go your separate ways. I would strongly recommand you to be financially independent when you are along instead of depending on your family for your basic need. This will set a very good example for your kids and it will make them stronger and better adults as they grow up. And it will also play crucial past in building your self confidence and self esteem. I wish you very best in the process. Please engage yourself in some kind of relaxation exercises and activities. Regular meditation will help you stay calm and focused. Also daily physical exercise will help you manage your stress. Eat well and sleep well. More raw vegetables in form of salad and yogurt also helps both in maintain and building your immune system. If you need personal help to think this through and in making a sound strategic plan, feel free to contact me or call me any time. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,
