Dear lybrate user... Depression is a term now a days so liberally used by everyone around that everything causing distress to our body is called Depression. But in reality it is the condition with persistent and pervasive low mood that is low mood for almost throughout the day. Also has time criteria of at least 2 weeks and others. But from the symptoms you have explained it is clear that you have the feeling of being at the edge for most of the things throughout the day and have the physiological arousal symptoms. These are the symptoms suggestive of anxiety and if these are causing significant functional and social impairment for a long time to you, it may be called anxiety disorder. Depending upon the degree of impairment you may be benefited by bringing lifestyle changes with adequate stress management in life. If significant impairment is there you may require medications along with stress management and lifestyle changes like healthy food habits, regular 30 mins exercise and fixed sleep wake schedule. For full exploration and management get in touch.

Effects of Smoking and Drinking on Oral Hygiene
Smoking

There is a very famous quote that smoking is a very classy way to commit suicide. Its adverse effects is not only evident on the smoker's lungs and respiratory system but on his health as a whole. The mouth suffers the immediate consequences - gums become pale, teeth lose their white color and the taste buds and the tongue get affected. It also has a damaging effect on the mouth muscles and lead to frequent mouth and tongue dryness ultimately leading to oral cancer.

Smoking during pregnancy affects the embryo formation and very often leads to the delivery of abnormal children or physical deformities in them.

The Role of Nicotine

The concoction of chemicals like nicotine in tobacco or smoke, and plaque bacteria leads to deterioration of the teeth. Before you realize, the teeth and the gums get considerably damaged which is irreversible. This paves the way to cavities and loosening of teeth that eventually have to be pulled out.

Alcohol

Alcohol contains good amount of sugars, which very easily settle in the mouth making it a bacteria-breeding place that feed on gums and teeth. The smoke which is drawn from a cigarette and the bacteria present together release a dangerous acid which results in stomach acidity initially and ultimately leads to oral cancer. This is also another reason to throat and intestine cancers as well.

Limiting the Damage

It is always good to quit smoking and drinking. Even though being addicted is not good, keeping the damage at its minimum is advisable. It is very important not only to brush and floss your teeth every morning but also after every meal. It is a good habit to rinse the mouth with water very often when you are drinking to normalize the saliva flow. Do not forget to keep chewing sugar free gums very often if you are a regular drinker.
Regular visits to the dentist is almost a mandate for regular smokers and drinkers. If you or any of your family members are facing oral hygiene problems and looking for suggestions or treatment

My friend have a habbit of smoking. How to make him quit smoking. Is it possible to make a chain smoker a non smoker?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
Hello welcome here. I understand your concerns for your friend. Yes its possible to make chain smoker a nonsmoker. But the most important thing in this case is your friend's motivation to quit smoking. If the motivation is high, he can be helped to quit smoking. The withdrawal symptoms are managed by drugs like bupropion (prescription drug). Also, nicotine replacement therapies are available. These include chewing gums and patches. The patch is easy to use. It is just to be applied over a non-hairy area on body and helps in decreasing craving. If you have more queries concern me privately

1. Wash hair sparingly and use a good-quality shampoo. Washing hair too often can leave hair dried out, leached of its natural oils, and may damage your hair. Aim to shampoo your hair at most every other day or even only twice a week. 2. Try shampoos that do not contain sulfates or parabens. Sulfates are the chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Both of these chemicals aren't healthy for you or the environment so try to use shampoos with natural cleansers 3. Use conditioner that matches your hair type, length, and treatment damage. A good rule of thumb is to condition every time you shampoo your hair, although very processed or dyed hair probably needs a little more love than natural hair 4. Be careful about using hair care products with too much protein. Too much protein can leave your hair feeling desiccated and brittle. While protein is the building block of healthy hair, use conditioners that come with balanced ingredients. 5. Rinse your hair with vinegar before shampooing, twice a year. Doing this helps to make your hair look shinier and cleaner; plus, it treats dandruff. Use 1 part vinegar (preferably organic apple cider vinegar) to 3 parts warm water, then rinse and wash your hair as normal. 6. Moisturize your hair. Use five oils: almond, castor, olive, coconut and lavender oils. Mix together equal proportions of each. Alternately, use egg oil. Apply to the hair and leave in for four hours prior to showering out. Repeat twice a week. 7. Eat healthily. Give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Since hair is made of proteins, eat a balanced diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet will ensure hair that looks and feels better. Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C. This vitamin strengthens hair. In addition, iron helps transport oxygen to blood vessels, zinc grows and repairs tissue, and omega-3 fatty acids grow healthy hair. Give your hair some time to show new brilliance. What you eat will not have an immediate difference on the hair you already have, but it will help with hair that is newly growing. 8. Remove stress from your life. Physical and mental stressors will keep your hair from realizing its full potential. Stress can cause hair loss, so try not to let stress overcome you. This means finding healthy emotional outlets for your stress: yoga, biking, meditation, or other forms of exercise all work well. 9. Tips Stress has a bigger impact than you think. Meditation can be very helpful, as well as exercise. --Put an oil on your hair at night before going to shower because this makes your hair shiny. --Do not sleep with wet or damp hair. This will weaken the follicles and make hair strands brittle. Blow dry in low heat at the roots before bed. --Most people use more shampoo than they need. Depending on hair length, you probably only need about a quarter sized dollop. --Don't blow dry hair too frequently. Frequent blow drying, or use of other heat products, can stress your hair. --Rinse your hair under cold water after you finish shampooing and conditioning to make it shine and look even more luscious than it was before. •When towel drying, don't rub the hair vigorously. This splits the hair. Try using a micro fiber towel as they soak up lots of moisture. --You can naturally strengthen your hair by mixing carrots, or Vitamin Water together in a blender and rubbing gently into hair before you wash. Be sure to wash out well.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Side effects after a particular time for lamotriagene are very rare. But one can not give guarantee that relapse will never occur as mental illness are often recurrent and stress can precipitate second episode.

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.

Hypertension: Symptoms that Can Control it on Time

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Hypertension: Symptoms that Can Control it on Time

Commonly people believe that you can understand your blood pressure is high if you are feeling dizzy suddenly or you are not able to sleep at night. Also sweating profusely is often related to having hypertension. But, to be honest, hypertension usually does not have any symptoms, which might help you get alert and take action to control it. This actually imposes a great threat to your well-being as you do not understand if you have hypertension. It is extremely important for you to keep checking your blood pressure level in order to avoid developing hypertension and hence developing a risk to your heart.

Although there aren't any major or very noticeable symptoms, here is a list of some rare symptoms which you can follow:

1. Headaches: If you are suffering from dull headaches almost regularly, it might be because you blood pressure has increased. The headaches can be a dull buzz or a severe migraine like ache. Keep monitoring your headaches and consult your doctor as soon as possible.

2. Dizziness: You might suddenly feel dizzy or you might feel you are about to pass out if your blood pressure increases. Make sure you refer to a doctor as soon as something like this happens.

3. Nosebleeds: A sudden occurrence of nosebleed might also be a symptom of a sudden increase in your blood pressure.

4. Severe anxiety: Severe anxiety or a panic attack is often referred to as a symptom of hypertension. If you have a sudden panic attack with no apparent reason, it may be because your blood pressure has suddenly risen.

5. Shortness of breath: High blood pressure may often cause a shortness of breath. You might experience it during various every day activity like walking, climbing stairs, etc.

6. Nausea: A sudden increase in blood pressure might make you feel nauseous. You might even vomit when this happens. Make sure you consult your doctor if this happens.

My brother is addicted of smoking and drinking. I want him to quit these addiction. What should I do know? What are the medicine that can help him to come out? Please provide me the medicine that I can give him by mixing into the food and serve to him. I want that he doesn't come to know about this as he will not take medicine. So provide me the answers accordingly.

No one will give you those medicines because it has to be carefully monitored and the person needs to know about what he is consuming, especially antabuse for the alcoholism problem. The medicine for the cigarette smoking is also given only by prescription from a doctor who has to examine him. If you want to help him otherwise these are the things you can do: Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.
