I am suffering from addition of smoking and I want to give up this habit how can I do this.

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Hello. Its great decision to quit. Set a date when you will absolutely not smoke. Work towards that day by gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes per day. Buy only one cigarette at a time and walk ten minutes to a shop before you buy the next one. You can also use the nicotine chewing gums available in chemists. You can consult a psychiatrist for medications to reduce craving. Good luck!

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of crab apple + 3 drops of water violet + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.

Smokers breath / bad breath is due the nicotine and tartar accumulated on the teeth. The best remedy is to get your teeth cleaned and polished to eliminate any tartar and the associated gum inflamation which causes the bad breath. Stopping smoking is the best remedy, but if you do not then a cleaning every 8 months will help periodically remove the nicotene and the tartar. This will keeps the gums healthy and the bad breath will be greatly reduced.

Dear, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

A problem that is nagging me for quite many years is that I have problem as follows: I am not able to stay focused, concentrate properly, feel lethargic and depressed, unmotivated, feeling of apathy, fatigue, inability to connect with others or complete tasks, helplessness, memory loss, no joy, energy etc. Recently I happened to go through a video explaining that deficiency of dopamine is the main reason for the above problems and recommended that deficiency can be replenished through various fruits and vegetables. I am person who is having a very high nutritional food on a daily basis. But I also take two insulins, metformin, metoprolol, cilnidipine, telmisartan, statin clopid and ecosprin for the last 09 years. BP and DM medicines for the last 13-14 years. Please should I need to take dopamine enhancing medicine to get rid of the problems above since I have all of the problems above which have caused rut in my life till date. I plead that I be provided with a convincing answer to proceed ahead in life.

I totally understand that is very hard to deal with medical conditions for a long time and be on medications on a daily basis for physical health problems. On top of those, you may be drained of the possibility of being depressed due to chronic medical conditions, the symptoms of which you have laid out in your description of problems. I also believe that you may need to have medications started for your depression and it is usually a short course of 3-4 months with a subsequent 2-month taper. If you believe you need help with the same, consult with a psychiatrist as soon as possible to get the best possible relief. Take care and have a lovely day!

If you are not contributing to her insecurity, then she may have her own issues that need to be looked at. If there is a huge discrepancy between the two of you in various ways and capacities there also she will feel insecure. So the thing to do is to find out what the insecurity is and then go about dealing with it. It is better if she is taken to a counselor and that person can be objective and neutral to help both of you see where the insecurity lies and can help both of you sort it out. If you attempt to help her on your own, she can never accept any definition because you cannot be the cause and the solver of the problem. She will see prejudice in it. If it is purely her problem her family may be able to help identify the issues that may have contributed to this from her childhood. It is fear based and there may be unresolved fear from her childhood. After you come to identify the problem you must play a very supportive role to help her in all reasonable ways to build the security and behave in a manner that is helpful to her. Your best bet is the assistance of a counselor.

I am 22 years old female. I am having OCD since two years. I am having Fluxoin, Lonzep, ModAlert tablets. Yet I am not able to completely overcome my OCD. I have OCD while studying. I repeat lines and sentences when I study. I have a very anxious nature. When I am tensed, I do the repetitive actions more. I am not finding any relief from medicines I am taking and counselling I am going through, I still have OCD. I want to know some tips and suggestions so as to deal with OCD and also reduce my anxiety and lead a happy life.

Hello , ocd is a difficult disorder to treat, but with proper treatment and behaviour therapy, you can experience significant relief, such that it will no longer affect your studying or day to day activities. Drugs like fluvoxamine need to be taken at an adequate dose for 6-12 weeks to see measurable results. You haven't mentioned the dose and duration of the drugs mentioned. Besides, if still there is inadequate relief, there are numerous augmentation medicines which can be given along with fluvoxamine. Take care. Consult privately for more help" stop obsessing" is a book that I would recommend to help you overcome ocd.

Hello lybrate-user, I am sorry to learn about all the difficulties you are facing. Our mind and bodies have a strong connection- our mind reflects the weakness and lethargy due to some deficiencies in the body. Similarly, the body responds by the change in emotions as a result of these physical changes which are felt by the mind. You have a small baby and you should be able to care for her/him to your fullest potential, as their childhood will not return. Therefore, I hope you are able to overcome your emotional problems, soon. As for physical problems, I would strongly advise you do a full body check-up once and get following tests done- 1. Thyroid profile 2. Vit d3 3. Vit b12 4. Hba1c (glycated sugar) once when you get your test reports consult your physician as to what diet and lifestyle modifications should be made. And also take medication, if any required. Ffollow your doctor's advise, thereafter as deligently as possible. If your body will get fitter you mind will slowly begin to feel better and the quality of your thoughts and moods will improve. You will also feel more open to talking about any life problems if they are bothering you or you're not able to find a solution to. Don't worry, this is just a temporary phase. I hope my advise helps you. Good luck.

I am 45 year old lady and into severe depression and anxiety. Hence I dont get sleep at all. I tried many ways like taking milk, banana and ayurvedic medicines. But nothing helped out. Please suggest me what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

milk secretion can come due to various reasons even in a virgin lady. Your suspicion based on this alone is not warranted. But explain to her that ur not a medical person, as u rightly did apologize and bring her back. Find the reason for the excessive milk and get her treated. All the best

From what you have stated everything seems to be negative at this point for you. Ideally you would need to sit yourself down and write down all the goals and aspirations of yours. Once you have noted down those then you could take further steps. And get your thyroid and Liver function test also checked as you are having depressive cognition and poor taste which could be because of some physical health causes.
