First of all try to avoid the cigarette. If you can't stop because you are addicted try to reduce its number. To do this when you open a new packet always throw one or two cigarette from it. And take balanced diet. Variety of foods fruits and vegetable. Avoid fried, spicy excess sweet products. Start with walking and jogging. If possible start cycling or sit ups. Push ups etc.

I am 26 years old and I am suffering from depression and my mother is also. What should I do?

I am 26 years old and I am suffering from depression and my mother is also. What should I do?
Clearly there is a genetic factor to consider. Both of you must seek the help of a counselor and if that person feels you need medication too, you will need to oblige. However, counseling must continue until the treatment is complete.Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

1. A person diagnosed with ocd, psychosis and multiple personality disorder was secretly given fludac 40 (mg) twice a day and risperidone (0.5 mg) as prescribed by the doctor (fludac for past 3 months and risperiodne for past week). Since not much effect is being seen, can risperidone dose be increased to 1 mg?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Dear thanks for asking your querry here. You concern is genuine. For psychosis the dose of risperidone is less. But the dose of fludac for ocd is ok. I am not aware about current psychotic symptoms of your brother. If still he has delusion or hallucoinations, you may ask for a review by his psychiatrist who may consider increasing the dose of risperidone.

If the lady doctor has examined her and told her about it, then there must be some relation of your mother's headache and menopause. Since your mother is a patient of depression, you can take her to a counsellor. A depression patient has many negative thoughts. Many of such negative thoughts get internalised and have negative effects on the body of the patient. This is known as psychosomatic pain/condition. Your mother might be having this. After talking to a counsellor, she will be relived of her suppressed negative thoughts and also emotional pain or trauma. This will help her in reducing her body pains. A counsellor will her help to modify her negative thought pattern. Counselling, along with medicines works very well with depression patients.

Stress performance if plotted on a graph is a bell shaped curve some degree of stress improves your performance but if stress overshoots a point then performance declines. For reducing stress while studying 1. Make a to do list of topics before starting. 2. Prioritize the topics to be read and study accordingly 3. Take intermittent breaks of 10 min during studying 4. Listen to soothing music or talk to your dear ones 5. Do not compromise on your night sleep as it improves long term memory 6. Before beginning next day recall or rehearse the topics studied day before 7. Take healthy diet and keep yourself hydrated 8. Try to learn meditation and practice daily.

Smokers are everyone not effected to cancer. It depends person to person. Because of smoking cancer comes that is healthy advice. It not means everyone affected. So do not worry about this. Better to quit smoking. You have pathophobia means fear of diseases. When you need smoking at that time take chicklets or any other chocolates or eat anything. Refresh your mind with tea, coffee or juice or any other small item of foods. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Do not think about cancer. If you think you are in very trouble. Quit smoking. Feel always I have no bad habits. I am very healthy person. Feel and think in a positive manner. It will be always best for your health. Ok best of luck.

I have a stammering problem. What should I do to cure this problem and remove the stammering problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

actually sir I smoke more then 5 cigrate in a day and now I wants to quit but how I do not know.

Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.

Hi, on reading your problem it appears that the person about whom you have talked is suffering from delusion of infidelity. In this, person who is suffering from this remains involved in such activity. The best way to get help is to get help from a psychiatrist. However it is very difficult to treat this but still many cases improved significantly specially in cases in which person suffering from this used to take alcohol.

On the positive side, confusion only means that you have many options. If you have too many, then there will be a problem of choice. But if you are habituated to stay confused even in the midst of good choices, then you may be obsessing and becoming indecisive. If you are not able to chose, then find someone whose opinions you trust to see what his/her choices will be and for what reason. That will help you. Since you had depression, there may be residual effects of depression and anxiety that needs some attention. I suggest you meet with a counselor and get some help to reduce anxiety and depression and help make healthy choices decisively.
