I am a woman of 45. I have been taking clonotril. 5 mg and arpizol 10 mg. I see a psychiatrist regularly. I am a bit too anxious and get depressed frequently. Do I need to stop these medicines?

MBBS, DPM

Dear lybrate-user, May be you are prescribed Clonotril and Arpizol to treat anxiety and depression. Since you are still too anxious and depressed, it is better NOT to stop these medicines. Please consult psychiatrist again and discuss about frequent anxiety and depression. She/he may 1. Increase the dose 2. Add another drug 3. Change the tablets 4. Look for other medical, hormonal and social causes and treat them appropriately. All the best.

Dear sir actually I have problem to our health I am unable to concentrate on my study due to some see object.

Dear sir actually I have problem to our health I am unable to concentrate on my study due to some see object.
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. 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 want to ask that is there any pills or drugs treatment for stammering. My brother try many suggestion but he has no change in stammering. Please suggest some. Thanks.

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Mohali
Hi unfortunately stammering has no medicinal treatment. However if your brother takes proper speech therapy from a qualified speech therapist then his problem can surely be solved. Speech therapy will involve air flow management techniques, proper breathing patterns, language and fluency techniques, a combination ofvvthese can help any chronic stutterer also. Good luck! you can consult me in private with details of the onset and course of your brothers stammering so that I can guide you better.

You are in immediate need of consultation. This is all stress and worries of life, u are having plenty of reasons for insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don' t like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life. If u want connect now.

How To Be A Winner In Life

How To Be A Winner In Life

How to be a winner in life

1. Know what you want to get out of life … as you won’t reach your goals if you don’t where you’re going.
2. Make a list of all things that you’re grateful for … as it will change your attitude, your feelings and your mood.
3. Count to 10 before responding (or even worse, reacting) … as you don’t want to live with a series of regrets.
4. Track your progress so you know how you’re doing on your journey, and can make adjustments if you find you get off course. 
5. Take care of yourself or you’ll end up burnt out – and you’ll lose the motivation to try, and persevere.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I suppose you are married for more than 5 years. You know your wife better. You can always talk to her to find out why she is behaving in this manner. Be patient. Get the reasons and please let me know. As you are loving, she is bound to talk to you. Alternatively you can book an online consultation session with me so that I can talk to you and your wife regarding the issue and provide remedial measures. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

He just listen but utter no words. In school also he has one or two friends. His mother had high hopes on him and if it goes like this he may fail in 12th std. Some friends suggested to ask extra time in public exam after getting Doctor's certificate. But we are afraid that he will be shown as mentally disabled in future certificates. Pl. Guide us what to do in his case.

Sir from the information provided it is understood that child is in 12th grade and having problems in coping in studies. But as a parent I hope you have got the child evaluated for intellectual ability by a Clinical psychologist to know the IQ of child. This will help you know where the child is having problem and then work on those areas. Some child have good intellectual ability but have Learning Disability wherein problem is in reading, writing or maths. Hence an assessment is important before any thing else is decided.

Recommend - don't hurt yourself it's not a good option for you. Try to aviod unacceptable circumstances, listening songs, try to do some innovative. Yoga and meditation is good for you. Etc hetal, you immediately need some counselling sessions with homoeopathic medication it's help to provide permanent cure.

If you can afford, take sittings with a psychologist that will help you overcome your feelings of depression and slowly guide you out of that state, reducing your tension, stress. As a result, the burden on your head will decrease and your memory will be better!

You must be under stress to have BP and to some extent diabetes so early in life (I don't know how long you have had these problems, though). You should meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings and things that are causing you stress. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully if it meets your approved diet plans too: 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.

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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Hye. Your weakness problem is because you are not eating enough. You need to eat small frequent meals when the body needs to ensure energy levels. Long gaps in between meals are making your blood sugar levels drop causing you to feel dizzy and hungry. So eat smaller but more frequent meals. Never travel empty stomach or stay hungry for too long after a long travel or heavy activity.
