You have to continue anti epileptic drugs after consulting neurologist. If you remain asymptomatic for 3 years without recurrence of seizure after stopping medicines, then you are cured of epilepsy.

I lost my wife six months back. I am retired and 61 years .Both my children are now married and settled in Delhi and Banglore. I am residing at Dehradun and feel depressed.

Losing your spouse at this age in not easy. The reason for your depression could be loneliness, missing her, insecurity about your future, cold weather, disinterest in daily routine. Try to get back to a normal routine, having a social life, cultivating a hobby, meeting relations and friends etc. Go out in the sun, start exercising on a daily basis. All this may not be possible on your own as motivation levels may be very low right now. Please see a psychiatrist/psychologist/homeopath/vaidya for medical advice and emotional support.

Hi I am looking out for the Psychiatrist where I am suffering from stress, tension, depression and often I will get more hurt for small things and I am not able to trust the near and dear one whom I used to trust them more.

Yes, you appear to be very much negative and are taking things, situations and people in negative way. It seems you are scared and insecure about somethings in your life. Either accept your life's offerings and move on or else connect an expert to express yourself for guidance and support. Connect one to one quickly.

I am student .when I am reading and learning anything. I don't remember many question and answers. please give some tips increase my memory remember power.

Memory and Concentration on work is important in all sphere of life. Effective study is only possible if you study with full attention throwing off mind all the irrelevant thoughts which interrupt in the process of learning. Try to get full sleep.-Take at least six hour rest for refreshment and relaxation of your mind. A fresh mind can concentrate more easily. Take regular exercise - Brain takes its nutrients from blood for functioning properly. Physical exercise speeds up blood circulation to brain and brain gets well nourished as well as brain gets rid of waste products. Study in a place with no or less distractions - Your study place should be free from such things which may absorb your attention, i.e television, music, changing color bulbs, maps etc. Similarly study in quiet place free from sound distractions. Avoid multi-tasking - While you study avoid playing with other things. Like you study as well as texting to friends on cell phone or making hair styles or one eye on television and one eye on book. Similarly study one subject in one time. Fixation of priorities - If you don’t fix your priorities and work haphazardly, it is more likely you start thinking while doing one task “shouldn’t I do the other task first as that is more important”. This thought will not let you work with concentration. Make time-table for your subject and follow it. Take short breaks in long study - If you study for a long time, you get bore and can’t maintain concentration on work. You should refresh your mind by taking short breaks to maintain your concentration on study. Have good breakfast - Your breakfast should contain items with high protein content, carbohydrates and low sugar content. When you get up from sleep, have good diet though normally you should take light diet. Play Brain Games - computer-based brain-training programs can help you sharpen a range of skills, from reading and comprehension to improved memorization and more. Master a New Skill - Engaging in "purposeful and meaningful activities" stimulates your neurological system, counters the effects of stress-related diseases, reduces the risk of memory loss and enhances health and well-being. Try Mnemonic Devices - Mnemonic devices are memory tools to help you remember words, information or concepts. They help you to organize information into an easier-to-remember format. Try 1.Acronyms (such as PUG for "pick up grapes") 2.Visualizations (such as imagining a tooth to remember your dentist's appointment) 3.Rhymes (if you need to remember a name, for instance, think "Shirley's hair is curly) 4.Chunking, which is breaking up information into smaller "chunks" (such as organizing numbers into the format of a phone number). Concentration Exercises - There some exercises which improve your power of concentration i.e. Yoga, self-hypnosis, looking at a round spot on wall with full attention etc. There are books on these things you can study. Your feedback matters for follow up. Thank -you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. For adequate control of hypothyroidism tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 mili units/l. So please check the levels and inform. Only workout is not going to help, there has to be a properly planned diet, that provides calories based on your ideal body weight and workouts. Should avoid high fatty foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Workout has to be intense, preferably under guidance. Taks for the question.

She requires immediate medication from a good psychiatrist. All allopathic medicines have side-effects. You may try at nearest patanjali chikitsalaya for medicines without side-effects. Plus, if you help her practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results. But, medicines definitely required, without delay.

Due to depression or stress it will occur problem such as weight gain, indigestion?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Due to depression or stress it will occur problem such as weight gain, indigestion?
Definitely lybrate-user. In a kind of depression called as atypical depression, persons eat more and don't have energy to exercise. They gain weight. During stress, the digestion gets shut down because the heart has to supply more blood to other parts of the body to fight stress or fly away from stress. Please remember that they are many other causes for weight gain and indigestion that need to be diagnosed and treated by a physician.

I am 22 years old person studying in college. From my childhood I was not good in interacting with people. When someone come to me and asked something I couldn't reply in a good manner. So I didn't have that much friends. Anyway I understood I was not good in socially at later 16s. I started changing my self but there where any good results (some slight changes are there). I am always dreaming about past incidents as making my self good and find pleasure in it. I visualise the same in my mind repeatedly sometimes. I was good at delivering speech during my schooling and got many prizes. But at the same time very low behavioural skills. Now in my hostel everyone teasing me but I can't oppose them. If someone asked something in a tweezing way I get silent and failing to handle the situation and sometimes I hide from that persons. In my dreams I am OK but in real situations I am far behind. Please resolve my problems and suggest me some some ideas to overcome.

Dear Lybrate User. You have expressed the issues you are facing in a clear and lucid manner, kudos for that .You have mentioned you are good in public speaking and have won prizes for that, it shows you are bold and articulate. Rather than dwelling on the past live in the present moment and day to day. Make friends with those with whom you can share interests and hobbies. Ask your close friends and relatives what you can do to improve your inter- personal skills. If you feel you might require a language course / accent or soft skills training, go ahead and do a course for that. Take some time out and set up goals for yourself - long term and short term. Live your life according to that .Re look at your self and your situation objectively and make a plan accordingly. Enjoy life and all the opportunities that come your way and look at obstacles as areas where you can learn something new. Do write to me if you do want any further assistance. Wishing you all the best. With Regards,

I have been smoking from 3 years and daily 5 to 6 cigars. Will I get cancer? Please advise.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
This are harms of smoking --- Smoking is a huge risk for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accounting for more than 75 percent of all deaths from these disorders. Smoking doubles the risk for cardiovascular disease deaths, but, because this disease is more prevalent, it accounts for as many smoking deaths as cancer and lung disease. The third major cause of tobacco-related mortality is chronic obstructive lung disease. Other common smoking-related diseases include low-birth-weight offspring, perinatal complications, other cancers (e.g., throat, bladder, and pancreas), and ulcers. Second-hand smoke increases the risk of cancer and heart disease in spouses and the incidence of respiratory and ear problems in children. The tar in cigarette smoke is responsible for the cancers. Irritants and ciliotoxins appear to be responsible for lung diseases. Carbon monoxide and clotting factors appear to be the most likely causes of cardiovascular disease. The role of nicotine in cardiovascular disease appears to be much smaller than previously thought, and how many perinatal problems (including sudden infant death syndrome) are caused by carbon monoxide or by nicotine is debatable. Smokeless tobacco, pipes, and cigars cause oral cancers, especially when accompanied by heavy alcohol use.

Hi lybrate-user, smoking can lead to multi organ functional and pathological problem such as, brain- can causes coagulation of blood and chances of brain stroke and paralysis, - hampered function of brain leading to depression, anxiety etc with decreasing your memory power and your iq level. Lung's- is highly know in causing lung cancer and urti and lrti problem. Heart - causes thickening of blood leading to heart stroke. Gastric system - is well know to cause acidity issues with peptic ulcer, diarrhoea or constipation, piles fissure fistula issues, etc drinking alcohol - is well know to cause liver cirrhosis with pancreatic issues leading to diabetes and hypertension. Both of this addiction not only effects individual personally but also effects the loved once by him/her, thereby destroying the healthy world around them.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Ten Ways to Improve Your Sex Life

GAMS-AYURVEDA, MD-TCM
Sexologist, Faridabad
Ten Ways to Improve Your Sex Life

The greater part of us can recollect the hot, zesty minutes when the love life  was new and everything was rosy between you and your partner. However, the flame of a decent love life may fade away. Gradually, you and your partner may have an uninteresting sexual life.

In order to break the deadlock, you must find ways to bring back the old flame. Here are 10 ways, following which you can slowly get back to your glory days:

  1. For men, keeping a healthy heart is a must for long lasting spirit in bed. Your penis chips away with circulatory strain. The mind sends signals to your penis that causes vessels to swell with blood. Your heart is in charge of pumping the blood. When the heart is not functioning at its best, it can bring about issues with the blood stream from the heart to the vessels in your penis. This can make it hard to accomplish a full erection. Ensure your circulatory framework is working at top shape. Essentially, what is useful for your heart is useful for your sexual well-being.
  2. One of the most ideal approaches to enhance your sexual well-being is cardiovascular activity. Sex gets your heart rate up, yet standard activity can help your sexual execution by keeping your heart fit as a fiddle. Sweat breaking activities, such as running and swimming, can do marvels to uplift your charisma.
  3. In case of men, some food items help  in increasing blood flow. This accounts for better erection. Example, banana (rich in potassium), onion, garlic, chilies and pepper. Some of these items reduce hypertension.
  4. There are many people who have certain sexual problems, but keep them to themselves. People tend to hide their problems from their partners because of fear of failure. These problems should be talked about, given attention and be cured in order to restore the normal sexual performance and Erectile Dysfunction is one such problem.
  5. Sex is a two way road. Giving careful consideration to your partner's longing makes sex pleasurable for them and turns you on as well. Discussing this in advance will make it easier for you. 
  6. In case you're not enduring the length you desire in bed, you may require some practice. Masturbation can help you enhance your stamina.
  7. Exposure to sunlight decreases the production of melatonin. Less melatonin increases the potential for sexual urge. Spend some time in the sun.
  8. Reduce much stress possible from your life. Stress boosts blood pressure and heart rate and your sexual performance gets hampered.
  9. Get rid of unhealthy habits, such as smoking and drinking. Such stimulants may lead to impotency, and you must avoid them to maintain sexual health.
  10. Experiment with new and different sexual positions to make it more interesting and fun for your partner.

Many people in my village are used to smoking with grass and smoking pipe. It is very serious problem for whole village. What should we try to avoid this! How can we make them leave smoking and the habit of smoking grass?

Dear lybrate-user. You can make village action committee taking help from other like minded village people. Take help of women and other youngsters. Try to convince the smoking people. Definitely it will be not that easy and could take much time. But slowly and steadily, you will see the change. You can take help from the store people and request not to sell smoking ingredients etc. One step at a time, leads to success. Take care.

The medication rexipra is an antidepressant, and the prescription seems to be revised for making your mom come out of depression. Rather than her condition worsening after medication, it seems the illness is increasing in severity and the present medication is not helping, also it take few weeks to bring the symptoms to remission, if in doubt get a 2nd opinion from any other psychiatrist. All the best.

Start counting the achievements in life and feel happy about it. You have made a worthwhile contribution and now is the time to sit back and relax. If possible, try to reach out to those who are less better off than you. Try to give them what they need most- maybe just a few caring words---see the smile on their face brought on by your words,--you will feel elated!
