Hi, I am 27 years old. I am going through divorce process and that is really killing me inside. It's been a year but now i am losing all my hopes and patience.

It is quite natural for anyone to go through this process whether you initiated or not. This will develop guilt in you and depression. If you have already decided and you cannot reunite ,keep up and be decided to face the situation in future. Take a firm stand whatever the decision you make. Indecisiciveness may not help.

Lybrate-user: While levosulpiride can be used for stomach acidity, it is not approved for this use. It is actually an anti psychotic medication that can also be used for depression. It is sedating (makes the person sleepy) and increases appetite.

Dear Sunaina. Welcome to lybrate. I understand your problem. Concentration is attention span. Attention span is at any given time is less than 10 minutes for any person. You should be able to be creative in your learning tasks. Over and above you should have interest and dedication to whatever you do to have proper attention. Search google for '' effective learning methods '' and adopt some of them. Your concentration will improve. Consult a psychologist online for counseling. Exam related anxiety is performance anxiety. Once you learn to study systematically your performance anxiety will be gone. Take care.

It is not advisable to discontinue or change medication in any way without the recommendation of the treating psychiatrist. Typically doses are adjusted depending on the symptomatic improvement, and always on the advice of the Psychiatrist who is in charge of the patient. Don't be in a hurry to discontinue treatment, risk of relapse is very significant.

Dear Doctor, I am a CA student. In the examination days I feel some kind of heavy tension. I checked with a doctor. He told me that my blood pressure is not normal. If I am so tensed my eyes and face become reddish. I need to confirm whether it is due hypertension or any other issues? With which specialist I must consult? Thanks in advance.

Dear lybrate-user Looking at the limited symptoms mentioned by you, it could potentially be panic attacks or anxiety disorder as well so you should review with a psychiatrist or psychologist and confirm diagnosis based on which further detailed intervention can be planned. Panic attacks are anxiety disorders amd because you mentioned Tension in some format, it might activate our sympathetic nervous system which increases our BP, heart rate, respiratory rate, dilation of pupils, problems related to digestion etc. Hence, we would have to evaluate and decide the intervention. Hope this is useful.

Hi problems related to anxiety and panic disorders are very much treatable. Anxiety is very common and many of us overcome it or cope with it with proper professional help. If it is severe or goes on for a long time, anxiety can affect your physical health, and stop you doing the things you want to do. The good news is that there are ways to help yourself. A combined approach of medication and psychological counselling is recommended. We can start with counselling sessions right away in person or online. All the best!

Hi, you need medication as well as psychotherapy for this. Practice mindfulness: The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

I have a great addiction problem. I call this addiction because whenever I stop smoking, I feel tons of Anxiety, Depression rising in my head. I felt so scared and all. I feel numb, dead and I can not concentrate on anything. Like I was not here. I feel life so distance away. Also I was diagnosed with Body dysmorphic amd have strong obsessions surfacing when I stop smoking. This continuous smoking cycle I am in makes me less caring, and I am a ignorant one ignoring every my duties as a man. I live in a very lazy way. I used Nicotex for sometimes and it helped me alleviate craving for someday.

1. Start your stop smoking plan with =S T A R T S- Set a date for quitting smoking. Choose a date within next two weeks, so that you have enough Time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit T- Tell your family, friends and co-workers that you want to quit so that they can give support and encouragement A-Anticipate and plan for the challenge you will face while quitting like crave for cigarettes and Nicotine withdrawal symptoms R- Remove Cigarettes, lighter, Ash tray,, matches etc from home, car or work place T- Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit and to deal with Nicotine withdrawal symptoms 2.Distract yourself to keep your mind off smoking like concentrate on some work, watching TV, playing games, reading books/magazines, listen to music, cross word puzzle or playing online games etc 3. Remind yourself why you want to quit. Focus on your reasons for quitting like health benefits, improved appearance, financial effect and enhancement of self esteem 4. Get out of tempting situations like someone smoking close by 5. Reward yourself- reinforce your victories whenever you triumph over a craving. Give yourself a reward to keep yourself motivated 6. Find an oral substitute like Mint, Nicotine Lozenges, Nicotine patch, chewing gums etc 7. Keep your hands busy like squeezing balls, handling pencils, paper clips to satisfy the need for tactile stimulation 8. Brush your teeth-The just brushed clean feeling can motivate you to get rid of craving 9. Slowly drink a large cold glass of water to help the craving pass and keep you hydrated. It also minimizes the symptoms of Nicotine withdrawal 10. Go for regular Exercise, play some games 11. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control emotion and relive stress 12. Avoid stress, Anxiety, depression, Excess work load, severe physical and mental exertion
