Dear Sohil, Many persons fighting with depression, get addicted to tobacco. Antidepressants and nicotine in tobacco, act on the same nerve cells. So their interaction may be not be effective, if they are used together. Why don't you plan and quit tobacco and take only antidepressant for improving your health? Quitting tobacco may be difficult, but not impossible. Try for 12 weeks continuously. All the best.

My son is 9 year old he is studying in class v but his mind is not concentrate on his study els e mind if diverted to other things as playing go to park and he also forget his things in school. These type of prob. What is the solution for this please suggest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be hyper active and will have a mind that has a very short attention span. He will do well, if he is allowed to play a lot and tire himself out. After he is exhausted, strangely, he will concentrate better with his studies. Also you can reduce high-energy foods that feed the high levels of energy he already has. Make a list of to-do things on a daily basis and have him read it every three or four hours to check against the list whether he has done all the things he is supposed to do. Keep a periodic watch on this to see if he is still unable to track his things and activities. You must spend more time with him also because all this behavior may be his way of grabbing your attention. Why let him choose an unhealthy way when he can be shown love and affection abundantly just as a matter of course! one more thing to be aware of: there is too much pressure by parents, schools, and the society on academic pursuits and less on overall development. They lose their childhood and may never regain it ever later. Such children end up depressed and badly adjusted personalities. Find a suitable balance between play and study and he will respond much better. He may be rebelling against the imbalance, innocuously.

Respected Sir/madam, I don't feel comfortable when I go outside feeling unnecessary fear, like what will happen if something will happen to me. I read many books to get out from this situation but I feel it's next to impossible. I don't feel good when I go anywhere. I only go to my shop and after shop I go back to my home. If anyone ask me to come outside I feel extreme fear, day by day it's raising. I'm really getting confused day by day. I am unable to complete my day by day routing also. Kindly help M struggling with myself. When I share these things with my elder brother he says, It's very serious issue and you have lost your sensation towards the world, and he always suggest me to consult any doctor, I lost my grandfather and grandmother in starting of this year, and they were our guardian but now they are not with us anymore and when these things comes in mind, I lost control on my thoughts. Kindly suggest how can I recover because I want to experience this life.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user Now you are living in depression and anxiety and due to excessive negative thoughts and thinking about your grand parents you are feeling loneliness. You should avoid to think such negative thoughts and thinking about your fears and loneliness. It happens with everyone. No one live on earth for ever and one day every one has to go. Turn your thinking towards positive thought that will be helpful for solving your problems. Wake up early morning before sunrises and go for a walk every day. Do yoga and exercise every day. Learn meditation and pranayam and practice two times daily. Otherwise You may consult local Psychiatric who will help you lot.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Cannabis (marijuana/hashish/ganja/charas/weed) consumption is associated with chronic amotivation syndrome and behavioral problems. It has been known to trigger psychotic episodes, as well as anxiety attacks. Consider getting an evaluation by a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction to get to the root of the problem. Strict abstinence from any kind of substance of abuse is essential for proper recovery.

Hi, pahli baat to yah ki aap akeli nahin hain jo aisi samasya ki shikaar hain. Bahut se log aise hote hain jo is prakaar chhoti chhoti baat par pareshaan ho jaate hain. Aap davaai continue rakhe aur saath mein yah sochen ki aapka control to sirf aapke behavior par h doosare ke behavior par nahin. Ho sakta h ki saamne vala busy ho is vajah se time par aapko javaab nhi de sakaa. Hi sakta h ki vah bhool gayaa ho. Jab bhi aap tensed feel karen tab deep breathing karen aur turant ek glass paani pi len aur apne aap ko kisi kaam mein involve karen taaki aapke dhyaan us baat par se hat jaaye. Shaam ke samay joote pahan kar tej chaal se rozana kam se kam aadha ghanta ghoomen. Pet saaf rahe isliye healthy khana khaayen. Yah exercises neend waali problem ko theek karegi.

Dear doctor. When I travel that time I have vomiting tendency. What is the problem. It's only starting before 1 month.
Nausea or vomiting tendency while travelling is due to disturbance of vestibular mechanism in your inner ear. Taking anti-emetic half an hour before travel will control this condition, which is called motion sickness.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. You failed in an exam and you are disappointed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Still I suggest for a psychological counseling.

Here are Types, Causes, Symptoms, Treatment of Anxiety Disorders

Hello, everyone, I am Dr. Sudeshna Biswas senior consultant neuron-psychiatrist attached with Fortis C-DOC Hospital Nehru place and have my own clinic at CR Park. Today we are going to discuss a very common issue Anxiety. Now the moment we hear the word anxiety many questions come to our mind. What is anxiety? How do we know that we are suffering any kind of anxiety disorder? And how do we know that we have to seek any professional help? Does any age group or any sex acceptable to this disorder? So, so many questions come to our mind? So let’s try to find out the answers of these questions?

So now let’s begin with what is anxiety? Anxiety is nothing but Anxiousness in a stressful situation. Now when anxiety becomes overwhelming or starts interfering day to day life that is what anxiety disorder is. So let’s just try to find out what are the symptoms of anxiety disorders so you can detect the symptoms of anxiety disorder of it is there with you at the earliest.

  • Now there are two groups of anxiety disorders. The first group, we call it emotional symptoms, the second group is a physical symptom. Now emotional symptom could be in the form of apprehension, restlessness, reduction in the concentration, difficulty in retaining things in your mind that are memory loss. Physical symptoms could be in the form of increased heart rate or a feeling of palpitation, shortness of breath or a stomach upset, numbness in hands and legs, pains in hand and legs, headache, shivering, tremor and some more.

After knowing the symptoms of anxiety disorder let’s talk about what are the types of anxiety disorders?

  • Now there are many types of anxiety disorders. I would try to brief few of them. One could be a generalized anxiety disorder. In this generalized anxiety disorder, people have various reasons to feel anxious throughout the day, many thought keeps on coming into their minds of a different variety. Usually, when these symptoms are lasting for at least six months of duration people are considered to be suffering from generalized anxiety disorder.
  • There is one more disorder we call obsessive compulsive disorder. In this disorder, people might have frequent washing or checking habits. Once single thoughts which is not acceptable to them coming to their mind again and again. Now again if these thoughts are there for two weeks duration they might be suffering from an obsessive compulsive disorder.
  • Some other disorders are there like we call it phobia is nothing but a fear of a particular substance. It could be in the form of fear of heights, fear of crowded spaces, examination phobia which is very common among the children.
  • Similar kind of other disorders includes social anxiety disorder. In this people have an anxiety of social situations. People become scared that other people are looking at them, probably criticizing them. They have a problem of public speaking etc. So this is one we call it social anxiety disorder.
  • Now few others are post-traumatic stress disorder. In this disorder people might have the anxiety symptoms after a big stress in their life, could be Tsunami for example.
  • Another type is called panic disorder. In this all the symptoms which are mentioned in physical symptoms, they usually happen for a short duration and people have the feeling that they are going to die the next moment.

So these are all, in short, the different types of anxiety disorder. We would just come straight away towards the treatment.

Treatment could be medicinal or therapeutic. There is various type of medicines available for such kind of disorder. Therapies are there like relaxation therapies, cognitive behavioral therapies and behavioral therapy and many others. So my request to all the viewers would be that please detect your problem at the earliest and seek the help of your near professional because this is a problem that definitely has a solution.

So now to end up if you need my help you can directly come to me by taking the appointment or you can use the app which is Lybrate which is a very good app in your mobile or you can just contact me through lybrate and seek up the appointment. Thank you very much. Stay well.

Hello lybrate-user, your problem might be frustrating for you. I would suggest talk more with your mother/ sister/ cousin sister then how much you talk at the moment. Etablish an eye-contact when you do so. Once when you feel you're doing good at having a conversation with your mother/sister/cousin sister and are able to hold it for long, then, you might not find it so hard to speak with other females. You can also try deep breathing before talking with a girl. Take 3 deep breaths before you go to talk to them. I hope this helps you.

General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?
