Lamotrigine causes weight gain. Garcinia doesn't cause irritability and can be taken with lamotrigine. Garcinia is promoted for weight loss and no scientific study is available.

It is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody. Ask if any more doubts are there.

My father is addicted to alcohol, what can I do for him to get rid from alcoholic ness of my father.

There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit his by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent.

If sometime I felt uncontrol. When my husband does not take care. And I make angry to them. After I felt suicide attempt. After I realize my mistake and then apologize. Please help me to control my mind.

Dear Geethu. Welcome to lybrate. Anger, aggression and sadness are emotions which usually comes after frustration. You were frustrated. I can understand. You tried suicide. No problems. Now you have learned that you can be emotional and can make mistakes. I suggest you one or two counselling sessions with a psychologist online. Take care.

My son does not work hard in his studies . He is not able to show sincerity and hard work in spite of repeated poor performance. I am not able to successful to motivate him . Any help shall be highly appreciated .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You do not mention your son?s age. You must meet with his teachers to find out, if there is something else happening to him. Often they open up to their teachers very frankly. If he is finding his studies difficult, find a tutor for him and that person will be able to help him. If he is in his teens, there will be quite a few distractions, apart from the hormonal imbalances. Is the home life normal and stable? It may also be because he may have learnt some wrong habits of learning or wrong foundation while he was younger. In both these cases he will need either a tutor or his teachers to help. He needs to be taught a smart way of learning rather than just working hard. You could also sit with him and help him, but with a lot of patience. You will come to know whether he is using any incorrect method to study. Take him to an academic counselor to check out for any emotional reasons for his performance.

Hypertension: 7 Best Ways to Control it

The number of people affected by hypertension is constantly on the rise. The most important concern with people developing hypertension is that it is not an isolated issue. It brings with it a host of problems, including higher chances of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and kidney diseases. While there is no definite cure for hypertension, it is definitely possible to control it using the following measures.

Weight control: Greater the body mass index (BMI), higher is the chances of developing hypertension. Check with your doctor to know what the ideal weight is and try to maintain it. If overweight, losing even 10 pounds can make a big difference to your blood pressure.
Diet management: Excessive salt, calories, fat, and sugar are to be avoided. Sodium is one of the main culprits for increasing blood pressure and should be avoided. Include fruits and vegetables that are rich in potassium and magnesium. Reducing salt is another major way to control blood pressure. Fish oils with omega-3 fatty acids are extremely good for the health of the heart and so consult your doctor to include the right amounts in your diet.
Exercise: A regular workout regimen can reduce the chances of developing blood pressure by up to 40% to 50%. This should not be misinterpreted as the need for vigorous workouts. Even small, regular physical activity daily goes a long way in controlling blood pressure.
Alcohol: While quitting alcohol is the best thing to do, for those finding it difficult to do so, cutting down on it plays a big role in controlling blood pressure. No more than a drink per day for women, and no more than two per day for men are recommended.
Stress management: Stress is one of the major causes for increasing blood pressure, and so managing stress is very important. Whether music or meditation, pick your stress buster and see your blood pressure lowered.
Medications: If you are already on a medication regimen, strictly adhere to the schedule. Consult your doctor before adding herbal supplements or dietary supplements. Taken individually, they may be good for health, but there are good chances of them interacting with your regular medications.
Monitor: Once you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, have periodic check-ups with your doctor to ensure it is within the permissible limits. If beyond limits, immediately correct it.
As noted, hypertension is not an isolated issue and brings with it a whole lot of issues. Controlling it can help control the other issues that would follow and improve the quality of life.

Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

I Can not look at any person Normally. I am in a constant sense of fear and anxious that I will look indecently (private part. I fear extremely Guilty because I do not want to And so all my concentration goes in maintaining eye contact. Of all the hrs At which I am woken up, More than 90% of the time I am thinking about it. If The person is standing some Meters near me then its ok but if it is far way then I can not control. So I fear looking at person. I am constantly in bad mood and depressed because of this. So I can not sit a classroom. And I Feel very guilt In telling That this happens to whatever persons be it a family Friend unknown teacher And it makes me feel very bad about myself. I fear losing My friends And as a result I can not converse with anyone. Maybe I am having some Poor eyesight because of forcefully excessive conversation. I do not want to hurt anyone. During Excessive concentrating, There comes a time that I can not control and blush. When I look myself In mirror Straightly my eyeballs looks straight but I sense I can look sideways blurredly. So in a classroom when I look to teacher I can sense looking at sideways students as a result They gets distracted And this hampers my concentration to a large extent. The same thing happens at every duration of day whether its driving ,Home, Public occasions, stopping at traffic light, Walking to classroom, Sitting in examination hall and infact playing Sports. I avoid Public occasions. I try to avoid it by looking down But blushes. As I do not want to hurt anyone So I remain alone. People (Some family persons as well which are in my house) enjoy that and Sometimes Maybe they do Purposefully And that compounds On my problem. I pledge to Follow the instruction Because I want to live a normal life and get away with the thoughts of depression and feel good about myself.

Dear lybrate-user, These are the boons and banes of being 18 years old. It is good you found the courage to talk about it. Most of the young people of age 16 to 20 will be feeling similar emotions, with varying intensity. First of all, do not feel guilty, but at the same time, you have to build the will power, the maturity to know that such things will not help you in the long run. Read biography of great people. It is at their young age that they found unique passion to find a goal for the future and put their full energy behind perusing an activity that will be good for the people of this world. Use you energy to find doing a unique, beneficial for mankind. When you are able to tell friends and family interesting things, they will stop teasing you. You too will be more self respecting. Regards.

Practice Meditation and mindfulness breathing exercise. 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.
