I think I am suffering from adhd as I am unable to concentrate 100% .i am taking medicines for depression also. I forget the things fast. I get negative feelings. I keep on thinking about negative things and are not able to break the chain of thoughts.

Dear Shakti, Inability to concentrate may be due to depression itself. Do not diagnose yourself with one symptom. ADHD mostly starts in childhood.

I always think negative. Lots of thoughts go through my mind. I try to ignore but it continues. What to do?

I always think negative. Lots of thoughts go through my mind. I try to ignore but it continues. What to do?
When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

If you do not have erections when you want to, in spite of having normal hormone levels, then that is definitely due to stress and anxiety. Anxiety is always an unseen problem which affects sexual performances. Once you treat anxiety like any other body illness you definitely perform better. A psychiatrist can help you get rid of anxiety with help go sexual counseling, medications and behavior therapy.

Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. Lack of appetite, anger, aggression etc are withdrawal symptoms. But nothing to worry. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hi there ~ I am glad for your question, and I appreciate that you have concerns about you mood swings. Many people feel happy and energized on certain days and less so on others. If these mood changes last for a week or more and are severe making it had for you to sleep or stay focused or go to work it may be a sign of bipolar disorder. It does not only damage and destroy relationships it may affect your grades and might make it hard to keep a job and can be dangerous at times. Many people with such changes have extreme changes in mood energy and behavior and may need medication help. Take care and have a lovely day

Hi I was diagnosed with panic disorder and mild depression in 2011 post which I was on medication of paxidep 75 mg and olean 7.5 mg. Gradually moved to serta 25 and paxidep 25 mg and finally was on paxidep 25 mg for a good 3.5 years when I hardly faced any problem. Then I weaned to 12.5 of paxidep and moved to escitalopram 10.5 with an sos of clonazepam. I was initially doing well on escitalopram when problems of panic attack started reoccurring and doctor moved me back to 12.5 mg of paxidep as that medicine worked best for me. I was fine on it for a month but started experiencing mild anxiety again and now since 2 dys I am on paxidep 25 mg. My problem is I worry a lot, have irrational fears and when a thought is stuck in my head it remains stuck. And mostly I worry about health. When I am in the best of health I can take a lot of stress. But recently someone said I must be suffering from bipolar disorder and that is worrying me a lot. Do you think my symptoms are that of bipolar or general anxiety. I dint have any manic episodes or deep depression when like the first time. I keep researching all the time. Also I want to know how long would it take for me to adjust to increased dose of paxidep, since I am experiencing drowsiness, loss of appetite, nausea, and break in sleep in the night.

Dear Suryatapa, You have an anxiety disorder. Mild depression is common in patents with anxiety disorder. There is no features of bipolar disorder in your case so bipolar disorder is highly unlikely. You can take paxidep in night time to avoid daytime drowsiness. You can take other medicine for improvement in sleep. It will take min 2 week to get improvement on high dose of paxidep. All d best

Dear lybrate-user, There is no way of knowing exactly who will get schizophrenia. However, about 1 in 100 people worldwide will develop the illness. Since schizophrenia tends to run in families, your chances may be higher because you mother has the disease. It is estimated, the risk factor for you is about 10%.(10 in 100) Depression is a part of negative symptoms of Schizophrenia. With other symptoms and mental status examination, any psychiatrist will be able to diagnose you. Please remember that if schizophrenia is diagnosed and treated in first 2 years, it will not become chronic, needing life long medicines.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi doctor! Can you suggest some tips to increase concentration and memory power? Thank you!

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Hello, I'm 25 year old working women. My parents want me to get married and are working on it. I feel like I'm not ready yet. I feel like I need some more time. I tried telling this to my parents, but they say, "as per your age you r ready and once yu get married everything will b fine. Sometimes I feel my parents are correct and sometimes I feel if I listen to them I'm gonna spoil my life and even my partner's life. Due to immense pressure by my parents and over thinking.

Its very common now a days neither your parents are wrong nor you are wrong ,its correct that 25 is the right age for marriage but if still you are not ready then its better that you wait for 1 year and during this time you can makeup your mind for this. Marriage is life time commitment so its decision should not be taken in hurry or in someone's pressure. You can also take help of any professional regarding this .And if still this condition continues then its better that you should avoid this, by thinking on this topic you will gain nothing ,only your frustration level will increase and it will adversely effect your working capacity .share all this with any good friend then you will feel relax. Take care.

Your reading is no substitute for doctors' knowledge and experience. Stop reading and get biopsy done as advised by your urologist. Raised psa is a dangerous sign. Don't ignore it. It could be cancer. Luckily, prostate cancer is a curable disease if detected in time.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Still if you insist on memory problems, we can conduct online memory test. To improve your memkry, you have to understand what you are reading. For that you ned good concentration level and attention span. For, good concentration you need to use creative learning mehods. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.
