I am 35 year old, I want quit smoking, what I have do, please advise me, thanks you.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Indore
You are well motivated to quit tobacco, that is nice beginning. There are drugs that can help. Requires visit. But you can substitute your tobacco need with nicotex chewing gum or niclonz lozenges used by" bite and park" method. This will take care of irritability and craving. Stop and start using substitutes. Help yourself and enjoy good health for life.

Dear Kuldeep, The key to resolution of grief is ventilation, that is share your burden with somebody trusted such as a friend, relative, doctor or therapist. The other thing to remember is rather than reducing your interaction with others, you need to increase it and meet people. Give more time for your hobbies. Do not neglect food and water. Take eight hours of sleep but then get out of the bed and dont keep lying down. DO this for a few days and you will feel better. If problems persist, the option of medicines is always available.

Lybrate user any medication taken out of limit is going to harm your body. When you say I don't hv much time left. Is means that you hv lost hope. Start with some light physical activity. Do deep breathing excersise as it will b helpful for both your lungs and brain. Be positive in life. Choose healthy food.

You need to consult a psychiatrist. You seem to have classical anxiety symptoms. Anxiety is due to altered serotonergic system in the brain, and can very well treated with medications, All the best.

Being fearful, will make you avoid situations which can effect your overall quality of life and not just your career. The more you avoid the more situation will get worse, so it is like a vicious circle. If you find difficult to express yourself in social situations, it is important for you to consult a psychologist, who can help you overcome this.

It is upto you , to take or not to take the negative opinions or comments of others. You may dump it in a dustbin outside your home. Tell them that you dont think that they are describing you..as you know how you are people are free to criticize or tease....but that should not effect your life. Just show them that you do not care abt it and are not affected by it and they will gradually stop!

"Bipolar disorder" can be vanished totally or not? I am taking medicine from very long period of time.

"Bipolar disorder" can be vanished totally or not? I am taking medicine from very long period of time.
Yes, you can come out of this condition. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. You must comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.
Dear, the reason could be stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the fight-or-flight response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Heavy smoking may lead you to these symptoms, even quitting of heavy smoking may also lead to these symptoms. But, if it is, contact a Physician to review whether there is no cardiac problem.
