I am 39 for depression my doctor prescribed Nexito 10. For 1 month I took but now I stopped. Is there any side effects.

I am 39 for depression my doctor prescribed Nexito 10. For 1 month I took but now I stopped. Is there any side effects.
Nexito is the brand name for escitalopram. It is one of the recommended drugs for depression. It is safe and does not have any side effects. However it takes time to build in the body to a level to give benefits (at least 15 days) and 10 mg is only a starting dose. So by stopping in one month you may not have received the full benefit of the treatment. Ideally treatment should be taken for atleast 6 months. Otherwise there is a high chance of your depression returning.

I am suffering from anxiety .how to control and face red after drinking alcohol in winter months. please advice
Dear lybrate-user, alcohol is not the only solution for anxiety and to face winter. There are more options for anxiety - may be a relaxation exercise or yoga or cognitive behaviour therapy or anxiolytic drug for a short time. Think of each alternative with its advantages and disadvantages. Better you write them down. The same exercise for warming up in winter. Many options and each one's advantages and disadvantages. After this exercise, if you decide to stop using alcohol, if you can not practice it, please consult online.

Good morning sir, i smoke & drink alcohol from 2 years. Drinking is some times but smoking is daily 3-4 times how to avoid smoke please reply me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The combination of drinking and smoking is very harmful, especially for your liver. It increases your chances of developing cirrhosis of the live. This combination will also harm your libido over a period of time and you will lose your erectile capacity. Of the two smoking is more harmful because the effects are gradual and will not be revealed to you until it becomes too bad. I have given advice earlier to some people and I recommend that you read and follow them meticulously. Sometimes these addictive habits mask an underlying problem which may make you susceptible to become enslaved to the habit. Work with a counselor to identify that and deal with those issues to completely and successfully come off the addictions.

Dear friend there are great speakers and public figures who had stammering. EMS Namboothiripadu was one great leader who's speach had been heard by large audiences. One journalist asked him humoursly "Do you always have stammering. He replied with more humour that "only when I speak" So don't loose confidence. Proud of your other capabilities. There are speech therapy methods also to improve your stammering.

5 Ways Stress Knocks Your Love Life Way Off Track

5 Ways Stress Knocks Your Love Life Way Off Track

Stress affects every part of your life including your love life. If you’re feeling too overwhelmed and tense, chances are that you’re libido and appearance will suffer. Studies have shown that being stressed increases the production of cortisol in the body, which makes you less appealing to members of the other sex.

Take a look at five ways stress can affect your love life.

  1. It changes your perception of the relationship: Being under pressure makes you irritable and snappy. Relationships exposed to high levels of stress most often turn negative with time. This is because stress alters our perception of reality and understanding of people. When you’re stressed, you tend to focus more on what’s wrong with the relationship than what’s right. This can lead to an increase in conflicts between partners.
  2. It lowers your confidence: For any relationship to work, you must first love yourself. Stress causes self doubt and lowers your self confidence. If you’re looking to start a relationship, this can increase your inhibitions in talking to new people or going on a date. If you’re already in a relationship, this lowered self confidence can lead to problems in bed.
  3. It affects your appearance: Stress affects not only your emotional and mental frame of mind but your physical state as well. Being under pressure to perform can result in binge eating and make you put on weight. Stress itself increases the production of cortisol in the body which in turn makes the skin secrete more oil. Stress can also cause brittle nails and hair loss. Stress also lowers your energy levels and makes you withdraw from social life.
  4. It lowers your sex drive: Stress makes it difficult to focus on anything other than whatever is troubling you. It has a direct connection to your libido; the higher the stress, the lower your libido. For men this can lead to erectile dysfunctioning while for women it can reduce the amount of natural lubrication produced and make sex uncomfortable.
  5. It can suppress fertility: Cortisol can also prevent women from ovulating. This can lower your chances of conceiving a child. this is noticed especially in cases of sudden spikes in stress levels and varies from woman to woman. It can also cause fertility problems in men.

The good news is that stress can easily be managed to improve your love life. Meditating and exercising are two effective stress busters that can enhance your love life. Doing this along with your partner not only helps reduce stress but can also bring you closer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult  the doctor and ask a free question.

My question is for psychiatrist I'm 20 year old engineering student I had a girl friend with whom I was in relationship for almost 2 years there we're no misunderstanding or any trust based issues between us. Our relationship was going well intact we both loved each other and were ready for marriage too. But all of a sudden two months back my girlfriend ditched me. And didn't even tell me proper reason or why is she breaking up with me, but after many days of struggle and hard push I got t know some how that she is not even committed to any other boy or she doesn't even like anybody else and she still loves me. But last couple of weeks ago I forced her to tell why was she avoiding me so much being rude too Me so much and no texts and call all of a sudden, and I was shaken by her answer, and I'm completely going mad in my life The reason she gave was that she needs a break till I and she complete her under graduate and later once I'm done with job if I remember her at that time she wants me to approach her parents and ask for her to get married to me, till then she doesn't want t keep any kinda links or contact or relationship with me. She says she wants me in her life but at the same time she tells me that" she doesn't care about me and go to hell idontcare" kinda stuffs Earlier she was having lots of hopes on our relationship but now she has left with 0% hopes idk why. She says to take care of my life and future but I I want to lead my life with her But she is like this. I'm totally going mad and hell lot of stress I can't even study for my exams and not able to concentrate.

Hi lybrate-user, its better to let go of people who do not want to stay in our lives. She for sure is giving excuses for a reason she is not ready to disclose. The reason is something else, but someone who does not even owe you an explanation for her behavior and cold attitude you should not chase them. Infact, she has lost you so with time if she wants you she should come back to you not the other way round. To test a person sometimes you need to leave caring about them, leave her on her own terms and focus on your studies its your studies and career that will take you long way, people will come and go but remember right people will stay.

I love listening songs and I listen to the songs most of the time but I experience day dreaming while listening to songs, after I listened songs my mind become restless while working and throughout the day my mind is very restless, I find myself distracted in songs while working or daydreaming, so what impact does songs have on my mental health, I listened to english songs and rock songs with loud music in, but I never listen old songs I do not like them much, so my point is while I am writing to you my mind is still wandering ini songs and my legs are shaking as if I have restless leg syndrome, but one thing is for sure my concentration power is very less, And my other question is why do people in ganpati visarjan, dance on listening to the beats of the music. What changes does occurs in the brain which causes the desire to shake legs, hands or perform body movements and dance, is it daydreaming or some imagination, what science is involved in it.

Dear Lybrate user, Every sound has an impact to stimulate our mind, so as the music, when a person doesn’t have a clear goal of his life, the mind keeps wandering. Which I suppose you call the day dreaming, have a clear conversation with yourself, note down the analyzation on a plain paper. Find out what would you love to choose as a profession, just not to earn the livelihood, but to enjoy it too. Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you, unfold your own truth. According to symptoms provided by you Homeopathic Medicine Staphysagria would help you.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Being active, exercising, general positive thinking etc help you in having concentration. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yes. Suddenly quitting weed could cause withdrawal symptoms like restlessness and nervousness. You can engage in physical activities and outdoor games and engaged entertainment. Drink lots and lots of water and fruit juices. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, one of the common phobias, is disease phobia. It needs treatment since it prevents your quality of life - avoiding tours and becoming useless in times of need. Though you have been suffering from your childhood, at that time not much is expected from you. Now at 48 years, your wife and child may expect you to act boldly and make them feel secure. Please come on personal consultation to get the diagnosis and other details, to plan your treatment. The treatment may be anxiolytic and/or antidepressant tablets, if necessary. Or may be talk therapy to question and challenge negative automatic thoughts which makes you nervous.
