Social phobia is a psychological problem. Medicine will not helpful for this aspect. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling will helpful to come out of this problem. Because of one problem simultaneously other factors also developed. Muttering it is not related to schizophrenia in your aspect. Do not think too much about psychological disorders. Take life style modification and cognitive behaviour modification therapy. It is good to you. It is not caused for any side affects. For social phobia you need to do some work. Do not sit alone and do not think aloneness. Be share your internal feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Do not use continuously medicine it is not good for your mental health. It has some side effects. Better to stop the medicine. Change your behaviour you will come from your problems. It is better to consult a good qualified psychologist in lucknow. Be happy all the time. Ok all the best.

Actually my brother started smoking how to quit smoking n he wanted to consult a doctor for that reason so that he might recommend some tablets.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He could visit a doctor who will prescribe some medicines that help with the initial craving. But he can also do the following: It is indeed a very noble thought that you want to help your brother. However, it is now very clear that in any addiction, the addict must want to stop the habit himself for any success. All you can do is keep advising him, but also highlight the dangers of tobacco smoke with correct information. And believe me that it is indeed very scary. One thing that hits a lot of youngsters, boys in particular, is that you will lose your erectile capacity and over a period of time even your sexual potency can diminish. And of course everyone has heard about cancer, which is very frightful. You could take him to any police station or cancer hospital to view the condition of cancer-caused disfigurement and it is horrific. These things do help in dissuading people from smoking. In other words, create awareness such that it works as a deterrent to further smoking. You would have done him a great favor. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep himself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage he incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear lybrate user. Hypnotherapy and psychotherapy are almost same. Hypnotherapy is part of broad psychotherapy. For smoking cessation, deaddiction therapy is better than hypnotherapy. More better is to use your will power. I suggest online counselling and motivation therapy. Take care.

I am suffering from memory loss. Is there any treatment for this? How can we prevent it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.
Dark chocolate along will not help in depression. Try following things to manage stress and over come depression. What you are feeling might be due to conic stress, result of our fast life style. You could also explain this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

What is the best treatment for bipolar disorder along with taking medication. I am 21 years old.
The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role. Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep and loss of touch with reality. Depressive episodes may include symptoms such as low energy, low motivation and loss of interest in daily activities. Mood episodes last days to months at a time and may also be associated with suicidal thoughts. Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy. Take care.

OCD and Depression can co-exist, from what you say OCD symptoms are under control and depressive symptoms aren't. But you have not mentioned the medications, dose and how long you have been taking. If for 6 months your taking from a psychiatrist and you do not feel significant improvement, it's wise to get a second opinion. Also give the 2nd opinion same amount of time to show results. All the best.

This is postural and positional headache due to fatigued of the muscles. So you should get intervals in between the long hours of computers. Do some exercise regularly like mm neck exercise etc take plenty of water by mouth. Go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises. And should try to be relax. Things will be alright.

Mr. Lybrate user, usually for forgetfullness there might be reasons which are functional, or pathological. Mostly pathological reasons like geriatric dementia, parkinsons, alzeimers etc willeffect in old age. But here as per your age, that defntly would be due to physiological/functional, as you already have mentioned, its becoz of your mental tensions, worries, any disappointments, tension/anxiety regarding career, most anticipation, higher sensitivity for issues, more thinking nature. All these are the reasons for your problem. You can comeback to normalcy by following few steps likeadopting +ve attitude, taking every thin in good manner, without worrying, thinking for salvation, if its not possible by u, then take anybody's help, likeur inmates, frnds, family membrs whom you feel like more intimate or good to suggest u. Try to follow meditation/pranayama strictly. You can learn these from any yoga centres, art of living, isha foundation etc like teaching centres, where you can learn yoga, practicing differnt techniques of breathing exercises, pranayama, meditation, which will defntly help you to get releieved from your naxiety, unnecessary over thinking, panicky etc. Try to think that every problem is having its own solution, some times it may take time, but defntly that will be solved with your effort. Do not go for any allopathic meditations& at the same time do not get any addictions for getting temporary relief which ultimately will spoil your future. Try to take help from any psychologist for councelling. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. It is pathetic to state that you are unable to come out of your past thoughts. You forgot many things and you can forget these to. Only problem is, psychology says, if you try hard to forget something, it will continue haunting you. Therefore, I suggest not to try forget the past. Instead, learn to relish the past. I suggest online counseling and cognitive therapy. Take care.

Hello, From your complaints, it seems you're facing some dilemma in your mind. Take some time out for yourself in a calm corner of your home or office, and try to ask these questions to yourself. What is really bothering me today/now? What am I expecting that's not happening? Are my efforts sincere and unidirectional to fulfill my expectations? Am I or is someone being overtly judgemental about something? Can I hold on to this disturbing thought for a moment and see what happens if I don't burst it out? Does it matter in the long run that I am expressing my dissent over this particular issue? Is it worth my energy and time getting annoyed over trivial matters such as this? Dear, there's nothing 'wrong' with you in the strict sense of the word. You might be really fatigued or burnt out and getting fussy because you haven't let it out when you should've but obviously couldn't (read bossy boss!). This is also evident from the changing sleep patterns you've been experiencing lately. My suggestion would be to do anything to unwind. Whatever it is that makes you relaxed, pampers you or makes you feel special. Let me know if you've any specific concerns/doubts in your mind so that we can have a little chat on that. Good luck.
