I am 43 years old suffering from depression last 6 years I took 2 tab daily in night escitelent plus & zolfress 10 mg daily I want to get rid of both tab.

Hello. Thanks for the query. I understand your plight & can surely help you to get rid of both the tablets. But the medications have to be gradually tapered so that you dont suffer unwanted side effects. Tablet escitalent plus contains escitalopram 10mg & clonazepam 0.5mg of which clonazepam is a sleeping pill. Tablet zolfresh 10mg is also a sleeping pill. So first up; start taking zolfresh 5mg at night just before going to bed & continue t. Escitalent plus as it is. Then contact me after 10 days so we can decide about other medications. Good luck.

How to remove the habit of chewing of Gutka and Tabbaco! and also leaving smoking habit easily without chewing gum of nicotine and alias!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am so glad that your intention is to quit both of these habits. Both of them are orally ingested habits of smoking and gutkha and so quitting can be a little difficult but can be done at one time. 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 yourself because you have become addicted to smoking and gutkha and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of smoking and gutkha use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You 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 you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend Smoker's Anonymous meetings and continue this support for a long time. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Unwanted negative events are known ro cause mental stress leading to anxiety and depression. Understanding the normalcy and generalized pattern of such symptoms can help you overcome. You don't need any medicines for now. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

Masturbation is healthy form of sexual outlet. Do not feel guilty. Most of the things you said are trivial and get your mind off it.

Let it be occupational, or any other, Not getting interest to continue and close the activity which ever started.. Say for ex., if I start doing some body exercises in the morning for some time 20 to 30 mts, I was starting but after two to three days or a max of a week the same activity was getting discontinued and not getting interest to continue, not only that, even on most interested activity...I found through some magazines that after checking the symptoms I am having clinical Depression, Not getting sound sleep, Having indigestion for which had some medicines for a period of one two months as a course but no result found..In-stabled mind always think to do something but due to instability of concentration unable to continue, suggested for meditation/yoga, but the same thing unable to concentrate to continue, BP and Urine/blood sugar checked and its Ok.. If I am reading some magazine/news paper article/watching TV/doing some work/chanting some thing in pooja room, if I found somebody is talking/some noise observed, immediately the mind diverts and I need to start from the beginning to follow.. consulted one of the physicians, but could not get me correct treatment... Can any doctor give me suggestion which can be more helpful to correct myself

Along with psychiatric treatment please follow it up with counselling and psychotherapy to identify the underlying cause for disinterest in daily activities. It will help you to modify some of your behaviour as you are unable to achieve your goals. Removing things which distract you can be a good starter. CBT would also help you.

Hi, I tried quit smoking several times but failed. Need to tablet to control nicotine in blood. Please advice any method to stop

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
First of all Congretulations for taking a first step towards quitting smoking. Smoking is one of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized stretagies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? How successful were you? And what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? All these are also important part of your success stretagy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailormaid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support through out your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. I do have a 3 to 6 month package to help smokers step by step. To come up with stretagies that work and to customise the support system. You could either contact someone in your city or contact me to work either telephonically or via Internet based system.  Hope this helps Wishing you very best Try long distance running as a form of exercise. Join runner's group. That might help as well.

I am suffering from marital discord and my wife hardly communicates when my parents are around. She leaves home at her own will. I am not finding any source of happiness in my marriage of 5 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a long-standing factor, repeated and confirmed as very critical to sustain a marriage: communication. When there is no communication, there is danger that the union will collapse. You must immediately reach out to a marriage counselor and both of you must attend the sessions. If she is unwilling, you at least go and seek help as to how to make something happen from your side. Ideally, it would best for both to attend, but she may not cooperate like you have indicated. Sometimes you have to take matters in your own hands to do the right things. Passivity under these circumstances is criminal. Be firm but with love. Even when she does not talk, you can initiate conversations in subtle ways, skirting controversial issues and gradually improving and increasing non-threatening dialogues. For example, ignore the non-communication during your parents? visits but as soon as they are gone and she is open to some talking, discuss matters of the house, children, her work or yours, old friends etc. There are so many topics that are easy for conversing about. Your parents, don? t forget, are her in-laws. There is a host of problems between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law universally, that it is referred to as a syndrome. If you discus controversies with her, you will be pressing the wrong buttons. Don? t even bother about your parents being respected, if you want to save your marriage. In fact, you can tell them not to visit for some time until something positive happens between you two. You must be ingenious without it being obvious. If you play the cards right, you can make conducive communication happen in your marriage as though you had never had a problem at all!

Tried various treatment, creams, following diet plan from long and also sleeping to 8 hrs or plus but no improvement in dark circles under eyes, so pls suggest should I go for surgery or is there any other option for that, pls suggest as I have dark circles under eyes from more than 5 years. Feeling very frustrated as getting no result from everywhere.Please tell.

Hi, dark circles might persist due to hereditary also. If any of your parents have it then you are bound to get them. Drink lots of water as dehydration also causes dark circles. If you have tried everything to get rid of them then start using concealer to hide them if you are getting frustrated. Otherwise accept them and put your energy in some positive activities.
