You might be under stress. Please check your hb and take iron supplements if necessary. Less libido may be because of not wanting to have sex. Mind and body work together. Probably you do not have desire to have sex. Try to find the reasons for this and then try to resolve it. Are there any other family issues bothering you? if so, that also can affect your libido. It is advisable to see a counsellor/sexologitst who will help you in understanding the reason for low libido and help you in leading a healthy sexual life. Remember that healthy sexual relationship is very important of a marriage.

Suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar-disorder, OCD etc. Will you please help? Already have been taking anti-psychotic drugs for 3 years. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are currently being treated for schizophrenia. I don?t know where you have the idea that you have OCD and Bi-polar too. Sometimes the symptoms overlap, look alike or are wrongfully diagnosed if the information you gave was not accurate. There is an important need for you to simultaneously go for talk therapy. In this therapy you will learn skills and coping mechanisms to aid with the medicine. Relying only on the medicine will not suffice. There is a lot to learn about social adaption, mental skills to train your thoughts, to use healthier neural pathways and networks that come with extended rehabilitation programs. Put yourself into a tight time schedule for the day and fill it with interesting activities. Major concerns like hygiene, sleep habits, work commitments, spiritual obligations etc. Need to be learned and imbibed to make you functional and productive.

Please get yourself evaluated thoroughly by medical expert to rule out any medical problem. In case that is ruled out, then this is a case of Anxiety which leads to Panic attack and shows in form of breathlessness. Anxiety issues can be helped effectively by getting Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy from a psychologist. It can be taught by them ad you can practice at home. It is a therapy where each and every muscle of body is relaxed and with continuous practice, this helps in easing the anxiety. Other method is hypnotherapy to help find the root cause of anxiety as there are many reasons for anxiety to be present. Hypnotherapy is a well known tool for helping in anxiety.

Dear, at this age, mind always asks questions because it is in a immature period. People become mature when they learn. There are questions which have answers and there are some questions which do not have answers. For those questions without answer, we should rely on logic or science. Your question is such. Talk to elders and you will get answer. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi doctor I am suffering from anxiety and short memory and mood swings and emotionally harested every time!

General Physician,
Hi doctor I am suffering from anxiety and short memory and mood swings and emotionally harested every time!
You have to check for depression and need to get mind control .7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

75% of patients who have recovered from the 1st episode of depression relapse. It's likely that you are developing depression again. The medicine that has worked for you in the past would definitely work even now. You can restart sertraline. It's advisable that you do that under your psychiatrist's supervision. Do complete the course.

Dear lybrate user. I sincerely opine you should never allow your wife to be used by another person. In the mean time you should introspect. No women likes anal intercourse because such a intercourse only presents pain and no pleasure. You should talk to your wife about the vaginal intercourse and the pleasure involved and show her how pleasurable it is. She will surely accept. Take care.

My Younger brother whose age is 20 and student of psychology and economics , He suffered from psychosis as he used to smoke marijuana hash and weeds for the last two and half years and suddenly stopped it, we consulted Dr. and some medication prescribed by him. When I came to know about situation I went to Aligarh from Delhi (Working here) and found that he was not able to sleep for the last 5 days (probably 1 hr each day he slept) after we consulted psychiatrist he went extremely well as we took him to a trip for five days, after 5-7 days we stopped medication as he was good as earlier and suddenly after 5 days a relapse in same situation with fear and phobia and that phobia is increasing day by day and sometimes decreasing, I am not able to understand what exactly we need to do. The medication prescribed are-Divaa OD-250 (Divalproex Sodium) - 250mgOleanz (Olanzapine) - 5MgLonazep 2 Mgand after relapse -Felicita OD Caps. He used to study and practice spiritual things like Aura reading, psychic powers and Illuminati Groups, he fears that something bad going to happen according to his extra sensory perception which I cannot understand. Whenever he watches any tv channel relates it to himself or family or our family ancestors and fears that there is conspiracy and planning to kill or abduct us (family or him). He is now having suicidal thoughts which I am extremely worried about, he is an intelligent student and extra ordinary performer with good IQ. According to him Delhi is not safe for him, however I decided to take him to mother in hometown which is in UP East, we have a sorrow filled family history with divorce of our parents at the age of 8. Father had fewer symptoms of schizophrenia and very mild and he is an ENT surgeon, a doctor by profession. I am 22 years old, doing job in a BPO to support family and studies, I always used to send him very limited money so that he himself can do some part time job to become a responsible person but he was never able to do so. Please help me to get my brother on right track and remove all delusional or false thought from his mind. Doctor now prescribed trinicalm, which is for schizophrenia and which blocks dopamine receptors, he is happy and gets sometimes fear about being himself or me abducted as he has posted and revealed illuminati groups, according to him which is delusional. His eyelids moves sometime at very frequent interval which I think involuntary. Please he me, I will be highly obliged to you doctors.

Yes you are indeed taking good care of him and so is the psychiatrist. Keeping him mentally and physically occupied with a purpose is important. Some delusions will go away and some new might come. It takes time for delusions to leave a person completely. Counselling can helps schizophrenics if they are not extremely disturbed by it. Ask his doctor and take him for counselling to control his delusions and fears. Also the drugs weed and marijuana would have weakened his system and left behind a lot of toxins which will continue to show their presence by way of emotional and mental imbalance. I suggest that he does a detox so that the toxins can be eliminated. Ayurveda has some powerful detoxification therapies and will help him to reduce symptoms. Though allopathy medicines are suiting him, but they have side effects as well. I suggest that you take an informed decision and educate yourself on these. Ayurveda and homeopathy are slow to treat but come with fewer side effects. Take your call after you have done your research. Besides this exercising regularly and eating a healthy meal has tremendous benefits on mental and emotional wellbeing too. Try to reduce junk to minimum as there are enough studies linking it to depression and other mental illness. Don't leave him alone as he's suicidal. He will need constant monitoring without him feeling overwhelmed. He should be in social company of friendly and supportive people as this will keep him integrated with the society. Lastly, I request you to take care of yourself as you seem to be the caretaker. Take frequent brakes to replenish your energies and meeting your own life goals. Get help from friends, neighbors, relatives etc. Look into your own food, sleep and exercise. Remember that you can take care of him longer if you care for yourself first.

How to reduce stress of study from mind and to be calm and cool before exams and live a tension free and peaceful life?
You need to change your study habits. Relax your mind by deep breathing (15 min) before you study. Start your study with your favourite subjects. Change the subject after 1 hour. Take a break. Go for short walk. Listen instrumental music. Go back to study with refreshed mind. Make a habit to write short notes when you learn and read, revise it. You can display it in your study room. Take enough diet, sleep. Exercise regularly.

How can I get rid of smoking. I am addicted of smoking and I want to get rid of this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is really good news and don't give up on your decision. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I have stammering problem from class 3 onwards and I me and parents had consulted many doctors but still now I am not getting well from my stammering problem. Soo please help me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

I am 30, Please let me know, what are the best daily ways to improve my memory and concentration.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Counselling will help you to leave the past where it belongs and stay in the present. There is no medication to help forget the past. Your headache is also due to the stress and tension that this rumination causes. In counselling you will be able to go over your past and look at it from different point of views to help broaden your vision about it, learn from the experiences and errors and plan better for the future.

Dear , you feel, your present physical conditions lead to anxiety. I think it is the other way around. Your anxiety about your health and stress together contributed towards these physical symptoms. We call it psycho-somatic disorders. No problem. Psychotherapy should help you overcome this. Provide me more details. Take care.
