Hi, I'm just looking for a little advice (or even just the knowledge that I'm not the only one suffering with this) around Citalopram and my complete lack of sex drive. I was told I was depressed / had work related stress at the beginning of 2013 (February / March) and was put on 30mg of.

Ejaculatory disorder is one of the side effects of this medicine but in your case I do not know if that is the only reason. If you are suffering from anxiety then also you could have poor sex drive. Please dotalk to your doctor and look at alternatives or reduction in medication. Though many such medications have numerous unpleasant side effects, it is also unknown that homeopathy and ayurveda have medications which has treated depression with fewer side effects. So do not rely just on allopathy, please look at a holistic way of treating depression which includes counselling, exercise, social networking, diet and lifestyle changes. With this approach, your depression will take lesser time to leave you so that you can lead a life of your choice and productivity.

Dear, you feel stressed during night outs because you are actually tired after a full day's work. Don't worry. That is natural. One or two counseling should clear the problem. Please post a private question to me and I will help you. Take care.

You are already taking cbt. Results of cbt sessions vary according to personalities. Some times you may need change in cbt techniques. Talk to your therapist. Secondly, improvement is based on relieving stress. You should detach yourself from the problems you are being posted, because those problems are not yours. Learn to emotionally detach yourself. Take care.

Hello doctors I have been smoking for almost 7 years, and it's more like a mental need for me now. As it doesn't feel any different or uneasy if I don't smoke, but I have kind of scheduled myself with smoking. How could I overcome it? Also I was wondering if there could be any means or methods via which the effects I have on me can be reduced? Can tar be removed at regular intervals with some artificial process? What affect more, tar or nicotine? Thanking you in advance.

It is very easy to quit if your body is not demanding it, and as you say it is more of a mental need. Every time you think of lighting a cigarette, have a glass of water, take a light snack or have a fruit. Basicslly, the idea is to postpone smoking. Try visiting non smoking zones and create a mental boundary for not smoking at certain times, like diving, when with friends or after meals. Tar is a by product rather when nicotine is accumulated for a long time, that is tar. I haven't heard of a process of descaling your lungs.

Is There an Association Between Brain Size and Intelligence?

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Rajkot
Is There an Association Between Brain Size and Intelligence?

When it comes to the brain and the IQ, is bigger the better? Does size really matter? Is there really a connection between the size of your brain and intelligence? With the help of findings by neurologists 
and scientists, we seek to find out!

  1. Ailments and the Brain: Scientists have found that children with autism have a brain that has grown in a disproportionate manner in the very first year of their life. This prevents the child from making connections with normal behaviour. On the other hand, children and adolescents who suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD have shown signs of having a much smaller brain size. Many scientists have shown that the size of the brain shrinks as we age, and this does not have any visible effect on our cognitive abilities.
  2. It's all Relative: The size of the brain does not really have a bearing on the way a person's cognition gets shaped. Even large mammals like elephants and whales are finally hunted and tamed by humans who have smaller brains in comparison. The brain is made up of billions of neurons which need to function properly. It may be seen that scientists consider the brain mass in relation with the rest of the body so as to speculate about the cognitive abilities of the person. Why is this required? Large animals need a well functioning and proportionate brain size to control and run their organs with proper cognition for satisfactory results, which is what we humans seem to have done.
  3. Neanderthal Brains: Historically, the earliest man or the Neanderthals are said to have had larger brains than we do. These people are believed to have brains that are at least 10% larger than the brains that we have in our modern times. The shape of their brain was different too. They were also heavily muscled people which had a bearing on the size and shape of the brain and bodies as well as the lean tissue within the brain. They also survived very successfully for a period of over 200,000 years, which obviously points to some form of elevated cognition, as per many scientists.
  4. Animals: While animals with small brains like lizards and reptiles do not perform too well on IQ tests, the animals with bigger brains like elephants and dolphins perform much better. But the medium sized brains of monkeys, lemurs and other animals are said to perform in the best manner. The correlation between the body size and the brain does not seem to hold good here, as per various researches.

So the verdict as per medical science and research stands divided!

I am 22 years old and my problem is, what I read that has been expire from my memory beetwin 2 or 3 days. So kindly give me some suggestion to improve my memory power.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, firstly rule out the following, drug and alcohol use can have a negative impact on memory functioning. Exercise and good health are associated with better brain oxygenation and improved speed of learning and recall. Fatigue can interrupt our ability to attend to incoming information as well as to retrieve stored information. The impact of stress and tension on memory abilities should not be underestimated. Feelings of anxiety and/or depression can interrupt your ability to attend to information, store information, and retrieve information. Tips: writing things down can help you remember things. Writing is a form of rehearsal. Writing also allows you to process the information through a other modalitites. Long-term memory requires a structure or framework so that you can retrieve information later. Organize information. Separate information into meaningful groups that share common attributes (e. G. When studying history learn facts associated with a particular time period, a particular person, or significant historical event together, as a group). For more queries and suggestion, you can contact me directly. All the best:)

How to Know If You're in LOVE?: V-Day Special

How to Know If You're in Love?

A Valentine’s Day brings with it basket full of love that lasts a week and it’s time to find and express love. Falling in love is one of the best, most rewarding feelings in the world! Some of us have had the opportunity of falling in love, while others have misunderstood infatuation for love. Everyone has their own definitions of what love is and what they want it to be. However, here are a few things that will make sure you know you’re in love with someone and you don’t just have a huge crush on him/her.

1. He/she is the best part of your day

If you look forward to seeing your special person because he/she is the best part of your day; it is probably love! He/she is the first person you want to share your news with whether it is good or bad.

2. You love their imperfections

You accept that person for who he/she truly is. The smallest of imperfections don’t upset you. In fact, these imperfections make you love them even more. You look at their imperfections as the tiny things that make them unique.

3. You become a better person

He/she truly brings out the best in you. They help you deal with your negative qualities and highlight your positives. They make you a better human being just by being there with you through it all.

4. He/she is your best friend

The bond you two share is not just a normal girlfriend-boyfriend bond. Over time you’ll become best friends, partners in crime. Parties seem boring without him/her by your side, coming home becomes a lot more fun because you get to come home to him/her. You can share anything, even your deepest, darkest, most embarrassing secrets with him/her.

5. You think long term

You find it hard to imagine your future without him/her in it and you’ll do anything to make sure things between the two of you work. You understand the importance of having him/her in your life and you’re completely willing to give up on temporary satisfactions that might ruin your future with your special person.

There are tons of other ways for you to know you’re really in love with someone. When people say, “it is the little things that count”, it is these little things that they mean.

Exercise. Nothing aids sleep at night like a good workout during the day. You don’t have to join a gym or spend hours on a treadmill to reap the benefits, though. Try taking a dance or yoga class with a friend, playing activity-based video games with your kids, watching your favorite TV show while on a stationary bike, or enjoying outdoor activities such as golf, playing Frisbee, or even yard work. Aim for 30 minutes or more of activity on most days—or three 10-minute sessions if that’s more convenient—but not too close to bedtime. Avoid naps. Napping during the day can make it more difficult to sleep at night. If you feel like you have to take a nap, limit it to 30 minutes before 3 p. M. Limit caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least eight hours before bed. While alcohol can make you feel sleepy, it interferes with the quality of your sleep, and nicotine is a stimulant. Avoid late meals. Try to avoid heavy, rich foods within two hours of bed. Fatty foods can take a lot of work for your stomach to digest and spicy or acidic foods can cause heartburn. Stick to a regular sleep schedule. Support your biological clock by going to bed and getting up at the same time every day, including weekends, even if you’re tired.
