Hi there ~ there are many medications that can help treat depression and this is something that you might need to discuss with your psychiatrist. You are on medications for a very long time and right now it has not been helpful. I hope this helps in the way that you can find options to have your depression treated. Medications including but not limited to escitalopram, vilazodone, sertraline, bupropion, desvenlafaxine, duloxetine, etc may be other options however I strongly advise you to consult a psychiatrist before switching to other medications or adding another medication on to your current therapy. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Emotions are part of body's defense mechanism to overcome some internal and external threats. You cannot just forgo them. Once you become experienced in your life, automatically the intensity of the emotions come down. Don't worry. Be proud that you have emotions because emotions help you clear your mind of stress.

I am addicted to watch porn. I really want to avoid that but can't control myself. How to avoid that?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, Signs and Symptoms of Porn Addiction Excessive viewing of pornography. The definition of “excessive” depends on what you consider healthy, or it is the point at which pornography starts to have a negative impact on some aspect of your (or someone else’s) life. Watching pornography interferes with normal daily behavior or responsibilities. More time spent watching pornography, or searching for more stimulating types of pornography, is needed to get you aroused or to climax, i. E. You develop a tolerance. There is a sense of emotional distress, or feeling of withdrawal, when porn use is stopped. Continued use pornography despite serious consequences (e. G. Loss of relationship or job, contraction of a sexually transmitted disease or “STD”). Compulsive masturbating. Sexual dysfunction (e. G. Impotence, premature ejaculation). Use of pornography negatively affects your relationships, for example: It is more difficult to become aroused by your partner. Romantic or sexual behavior between you and your partner changes (e. G. Becomes more aggressive, dominant, or emotionally disconnected). You watch porn as a way to alter your mood (e. G. Obtain a “high”) or avoid other unpleasant feelings, like anxiety or depression. What Causes Porn Addiction? Porn addiction, like other substances or “things” that people can become addicted to, can be understood through principles of “operant conditioning.” This is where a certain behavior, watching porn in this case, is “reinforced,” or rewarded, which in turn makes you want to do it again (and again). Lots of different things can be reinforcing, and thus influence our behavior, but porn can be especially reinforcing because the reward taps into a very basic instinctual drive—sex. Therefore, it is very easy to become addicted to porn—it is accessing a fundamental (and very enjoyable) natural drive. It is also much easier to obtain than going out and finding a “mate” to fulfill this drive. The problem occurs when seeking sexual pleasure becomes excessive, impulsive, or comes at the expense of other valued behaviors. Then we might say that one has a porn addiction. Other Factors Influencing Porn Addiction Biological You may have a genetic predisposition to impulsivity, emotion dysregulation, or sensation-seeking behavior. You may have a predisposition to other characteristics that are associated with sexual addiction, like anxiety or depression. As you might expect, higher levels of sex hormones like testosterone or estrogen can affect libido. If you are inclined towards impulsive behavior and have high levels of sex-related hormones, you may be more likely to engage in excessive or compulsive porn watching. Psychological Early-life environmental factors, including adverse events like abuse or exposure to sexual content, can contribute to some of the underlying traits involved in porn addiction behaviors. Mental health: Anxiety. Depression. Personality disorders. Poor impulse control. Performance anxiety. Other mental health issues might contribute to porn addiction behaviors. Social Rejection in relationships and social circles can lead to other, less healthy ways to find sexual gratification. Social isolation: Not only does social isolation increase one’s likelihood of seeking inappropriate ways of being sexually gratified, it also leads to a host of other problems—like depression and physical maladies—that can contribute to porn addictions or unhealthy sex behaviors. Peer influence: If others around you are doing something, you are more likely to do it, too. Having a friend, or a group of friends, for example, who engage in excessive porn viewing can influence your behavior. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I'll smoke usually so for further side effect I should not get addicted so what is the solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Wonderful decision. You must quit it and quickly too. 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 in 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 heart beat 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 chewing 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.

My mother takes very much tension and she also has a very high sugar rate last time tested it was fasting-278, PP-375 so is there any topic to worry about and if yes then how to solve it.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

General Physician,
Develop a routine and stick to it. ... Find the right place to study or work. ... Turn off all electronic devices. ... Establish priorities via the CEO & Worker Bee modes. ... Visualize with paper. To become an active learner, you need to think about the information you are reading or listening to, and do something with what you are learning. This could include: Asking questions as you read. Make notes in your own words. Summarising what you read. Talking to someone about the information you're learning. Use your own words to discuss it with other students, friends or your family. (If you don't have a friend who'll listen, try an imaginary friend, or the family pet.) Thinking about how the new information fits in with things you already know. Thinking about how you can use the new information in your studies and in your everyday life. How to apply active learning to your studies Don't just read your course materials, do all the activities as well. Identify the main points in the material you're reading and highlight them or write them down. Try different ways of writing notes – on paper or cards, in pictures, perhaps put them into a table, a mind map or a list, or record them. Note the things in your course materials that you already know. Log onto the online forum for your course regularly. Ask questions and discuss your ideas with your fellow students. Think of three or four questions you could ask your lecturer/tutor. Then try to answer them yourself. Imagine you had to set the exam - what questions would you include? How would you answer them?

I am 21 years old. I am forgetting some simple things. What should I do to remember all things?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate-user, it is not abnormal to have sexual feelings at this age, self masturbation has no side effects, it is good that you wants stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

The problem is ther my hairs are becoming grey so is ther any relation between this medicine and grey hair and is there any permanent solution of this general anxiety disorder.

MD - Psychiatry

GAD is a long term disorder, no permenent solution, apart from regular medicines. Stress and anxiety can cause hair greying. To my knowledge the medicines will not, anyway what r the medicines being given. All the best, consult your psychiatrist and take them regularly.

I am 16 years old I want to know that how can I gain more and more fat easily and how to active the brain?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is really that important then you may increase your consumption of carbohydrates but make sure that you have a balanced diet too or you may take supplements to augment any vitamin or mineral loss or deprivation. For an active brain please 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 is 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.

Sir what is happening with me I can not understand if I talk with any person I get fear and my conscious say he is judging what he will be thinking about me in my mind it starts point of view of others please suggest me something.

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Dear Ranjit The fear that people are judging me generally occurs when we have very low self confidence. You will have to practice some relaxation exercises , breathing exercises and have to monitor your self talk. We are all the time talking to ourselves. Most of the self talk is telling us 'how we are incapable' 'what people are thinking about me' etc. Question yourself - how many times you think about what people do ? No one has the time to think about what others are doing . If someone comments on you all the time, such people should anyways be avoided- because well meaning people appreciate also . Indulge in positive thinking and surround yourself with people who are positive and encouraging.

Let her be in an environment where she can find friends and can see and learn naturally. Do not scold do not beat. Be cool , let her feel the necessity to study naturally. The instinct inside her body is not generating. This is how we are built. She may lose 1 year or 2. But do not do anything so that she turns to be a psycho patient. You will lose her for ever.

Definitely I don't think there is any use. Homeopathic medicines are of lowest potency and they may not even act on your body if taken along with allopathy medicines. But you can continue taking it if your homeopath suggest to do so. Schizophrenia is better treated with the help of medicines, psychotherapy and meditation. I need to ascertain and diagnose your current mental state. You could post a detailed private question to me to have a proper diagnosis. God bless you.
