Does anxiety cure through medication. Or automatically? I am taking anti depressant medicine like galop plus 10.

Does anxiety cure through medication. Or automatically? I am taking anti depressant medicine like galop plus 10.
Anxiety is when these anxious feelings don't go away – when they're ongoing and happen without any particular reason or cause. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life. Everyone feels anxious from time to time, but for someone experiencing anxiety, these feelings aren't easily controlled. For the treatment go for counseling. You can take homeopathic medicine which has proven results in anxiety. These medicines are without any side-effects. Regards.

Is there any side affects of having marijuana. I want to quit from it but I can't. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the effect of marijuana and that is also the catch in it: its pleasant effects and creative stimulus are enticing but so are the dangers. Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here?s what WebMD has to say: ?No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That?s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don?t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: ? Dizziness ? Shallow breathing ? Red eyes and dilated pupils ? Dry mouth ? Increased appetite ? Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you?re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.? It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ?cross hallucinations? i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!! If you are finding it very difficult to give it up on your own then admit yourself in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep yourself clean forever. You will need to alter your lifestyle, change your friends, your haunts, your habits, etc. You must learn to have fun in clean ways. You must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally you must be able to handle your feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach you about emotions and how to handle them.

My wife is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Sometimes she is very rigid and violent. Sizdon plus medicine she is taking. But she is reluctant to take a medicine. What should be done. Also she doesn't believe on any body including me also.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Lybrate user, Welcome to this forum! I see that your wife is refusing to take treatment and she is symptomatic i.e paranoid about others. There are other ways to deal with this problem - 1) get her admitted in a hospital with psychiatry ward. 2) can start with depot injections or tablets that medicines that can be given on months/weekly basis. 3) follow up with psychiatrist for any other suggestions. All the best! Regular treatment is of utmost importance in a violent patient. Healthy mind is as important as healthy body. For more queries you can consult me online.

I have social anxiety problems, I sweat a lot in public. I have also had stammering problems some years ago but I overcame it. I have great fear of giving or being in any type of public performance like speech .I have a habit of observing people and their actions. They irritate the hell out of me and I think they would be better off. I have short temper. I can not converse long with people and also do not even wish to talk to others. These days I'm having depression and feeling miserable and misanthropic. Everyday this trial of my monotonous life scares me at the end of the day. Will my life change?

From what you have mentioned, you are definitely manifesting symptoms of social phobia. You difficulty in communicating and avoiding people are due to the same. You should consult a psychiatrist for initiating treatment for the same. Medications like sertraline and paoxetine will help in treating social phobia. In addition, you can also opt for behavior therapy sessions which will help you relax and overcome your anxiety in facing the situations. I do hope that I was able to help with your query.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep.

You have a social anxiety disorder. It can not go away from supplements. You need to take proper medications from psychiatrist to relieve your anxiety and most importantly psychotherapy from a psychologist in order to gain control over yourself and be free from anxiety and more confident in social scenarios. Start with mindfulness breathing exercise. You can consult me for same.

Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. If you want to know whether a girl loves you or not, the best method is to propose her. Immediately you will come to know. There are no short cuts. You can observe her behavior and see whether things are favorable. But such a step is always unsatisfactory for you because you want to know the truth. Propose her and hope for the best. Take care.

Yes, from what you are saying, it appears there is no irreversible damage as of now. So if you quit completely now, dangerous diseases are unlikely to occur in future. Take care and congratulations on your decision to quit!

Hello, I am vedika 18 years. I just want to improve my concentration and sitting capacity to study. I usually study for 1 to 2 hrs. After that I get bored then I just keeps my books away so please suggest something. That increase my concentration.

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi , Do'nt worry short term intervals are good for your studies. For improving your concentration at first you have to eliminate all the distractions from your study room. Try to take one task at a time. Our attention is limited, when you try to do several things at one time, then you necessarily have to divide your attention. Try to focus on the task at hand, if you are reading a book ask yourself how would you summarize it, and then try to recall it. Meditation is also helpful for improving your concentration. Thanks.

Drinking a cup or two throughout the day can be relaxing, but this much is bad for you. Coffee and tea are dehydrating and addictive. Whenever you have an urge to have coffee, have a glass of water and have some fruit or light snack instead. That would have a better impact and help you concentrate better, without harming. Having this much coffee actually kills your appetite.

Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

M.Phil biotech and PGD Dietitics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Panchkula
Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

Early childhood is a time when the brain develops rapidly and nutrition is an important part of healthy brain development. It is important for children to eat a variety of foods that can provide them with the proper intake of carbohydrate, protein, good fats, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. There is a very strong mind-gut connection; therefore focusing on the food you choose to complete the nutritional needs of your child can make a great difference in their brain function.

Certain foods are better for our brains than others, these brain foods may help boost a child's brain growth and even improve the memory and cognitive development.

During infancy, the amino acids and fatty acids in breast milk are ideal for optimal brain development. The brain continues to grow throughout early childhood and children who do no consume a balanced diet are at risk of developing mental retardation and behavioral problem.

10 brain foods to feed the mind and body properly:

1. Whole grains: Brain needs a consistent supply of glucose, thus foods those are high in refined sugars and carbohydrates leads to rapid fluctuation in blood glucose levels and the brain doesn't get the steady fuel supply and energy for proper functioning, therefore to nourish the most active part of body include whole-grain breads, oatmeal, roasted grains in the diet of children for regular release of glucose in body. Oats are also rich in vitamin-B, Vitamin-E, potassium and zinc.

2. Eggs: The protein and nutrients in eggs help kids concentrate because the egg yolks are packed with choline which boosts memory. Eggs are also rich in protein, which provides energy to help the brain stay alert longer.

3. Fish: Fish is a good source of vitamin D and omega-3s, which protect the brain from declining mental skills and memory loss. Salmon, tuna, and sardines are all rich in Omega-3s. The more Omega-3s we can get to the brain, the better it will function and the better kids will be able to focus.

4. Seeds: Packed with protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Seeds may boost mood and keep your nervous system in check. For example sunflower seed butter as they are rich in folate, vitamin E and selenium and are safe for nut-free zones.try to include seeds directly to the meals.

5. Iron is important for brain development: Preschoolers and toddlers typically eat less iron-rich foods than they did in infancy. In addition, the iron that children get is usually non-Heme iron (from plant sources,) which has lower availability than heme iron (from animal source).sources beef, nuts and dark leafy vegetable (spinach) and tofu.

6. Milk and Yoghurt: Milk and yoghurt contains healthy fats and proteins those are important for brain health. The majority of the brain is made up of fat, so it is no wonder healthy fat is important to feed the developing brain. Protein is important as it can help brain cells send and receive information effectively. Yoghurt also contains good bacteria that will help boost your child's immune system as well as aid digestion, children need higher dose of vitamin D, which is present in dairy and its products.

7. Organic Foods and leafy vegetables: These organic foods are free from pesticides and insecticides and preservatives and do not cause neurodevelopment problems in children, which will impair proper brain functioning. Green leafy vegetables are loaded with vitamin A and K; these keep inflammation at bay .e.g. Spinach, kale, lettuce.

8. Walnuts: The high level of antioxidants, vitamin and minerals in walnuts improves the cognitive health of kids and improve their mental alertness also.

9. Colorful veggies: Vegetables with a rich, deep color such as tomatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots, and spinach are the best sources of antioxidants that support brain health and keep brain cells strong. These foods can be given from weaning age.

10. Berries: The color of the food tells the nutritional value of it. All the berries like strawberry, cherries, blueberries and blackberries have intense color are especially rich in vitamin C and high levels of antioxidants. Blueberries have high levels of Gallic acid, which boost memory by preventing degeneration of brain cells.

So, go ahead and try to include different food group to your Child's plate for a better performance.

My grand mother is suffering from Parkinson but the bigger problem is that she gets fainted when she walks or sits. Is there any thing by which she can walk properly or even sit properly. Her age is about 75 years. She has problem of even getting up from bed.

FRACP, DM - Neurology

She probably has postural hypotension. Bp has to be checked in lying and standing position. If it drops by more than 20 mm then she will need medications. Alternatively she may be having multisystem atropy or drug induced bp fall on standing.

I had a break up in last year. I miss her in every single second. Now I'm getting depressed. What should I do to move on?

I had a break up in last year. I miss her in every single second. Now I'm getting depressed. What should I do to move...
It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgiveable. But you say you cry every night, and you have lost so much of weight and friends that it seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is, unfortunately, a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that depression is plaguing you, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time, choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.
