The medication you are taking for bipolar is one of the best medications for this disorder. However, a thorough evaluation and review of illness history and treatment records will be needed to comment on the duration of treatment. There are alternative medicines available, but the need for them can only be determined after examination. Additionally, considering that the medication is being consumed for a long time, it will be advisable to get certain blood tests to rule out common adverse effects of the medicine, at regular intervals. I advise you to get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above. Take care.

In last one month, I do not remember the things that I do or think just 5 mins before. What should I do ? I am working in us process so remain in night shifts and I can't left this job as well. So please help me with this.

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

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.

Fighting the Signs of Depression with Homeopathy

In this advanced ultra modern world most of us are leading a mechanical life in which they don’t have time to spend for their loved ones and family or even to share their problems and worries. It ultimately ends up with a serious psychological problem called as depression in which the person looks apparently worthless, pessimistic and even end up with suicidal thoughts.

Lack of interest in doing any activities, loss of appetite, insomnia, diminished emotional bonds, persistent sadness, poor concentration, guilty feeling and weight loss is the common symptom noted in depression. It not only affects the mental health it also affects a person’s physical health and sexual interest also.

Homeopathy is the ancient form of medicine which helps the person to relieve from depression in a very natural way without causing any side effects and even sedation.

  1. Aurum met is the commonly used homeopathic medicine for depression with suicidal thoughts
  2. Gelsemium and caladium is the best used medicine for depression caused due to impotency and excessive body temperature.
  3. Arsenicum album used to treat person with excessive worries and mood disturbances.
  4. Aurum metallicum is best used for person with symptoms like restlessness, feeling of worthlessness and suicidal thoughts.
  5. Causticum is used for person with depression after a loss of loved ones or an unbearable loss in financial state and grief.
  6. Ignatia amara is the best homeopathic medicine for sensitive persons who often and easily get mood disturbances.
  7. Lachesis muta, used to treat depression caused by suspicion, guilt feel and excessive jealous.
  8. Pulsatilla nigricans is used for treating person with sadness, and social withdrawal.

Homeopathy also insists on several natural ways that helps to relieve a person from signs of depression. Setting a routine work, physical exercises, meditation, healthy food habits and adequate sleep helps to get rid of depression in a better way. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Use of drugs and alcohol make a person aggressive and cause personality changes. It also causes serious health problems like liver and kidney failure, stomach ulcers and nutritional problems, etc. Your friend will need to be assessed by a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. Apart from helping him stop the drugs and alcohol, other problems like behavioral issues and aggression can also be treated. You can consult me for further management.

I am 21 year old male and I am suffering from TB from 1 and a half month . I am addicted in drinking and smoking but I had left when I heard of TB in me. Can I drink alcohol once in 2 month because of habit.

Hi lybrate-user, see as you have left smoking & drinking, then it is not habit for you. It is very nice that you could have stopped it. But you should take advantage of it by not restarting it. See, once in 2 month will not harm you, but habit starts from there only.

This is all like madness: who would agree to marry such an older woman, with four kids, and your own aunt at that and now you are trying to push your personal agenda of insisting on sex. These are things that should have been discussed when they proposed this marriage itself and the matter could have been sorted out. If you knew why you married her in the first place you could answer your question of whether you should divorce her or not. If you think you still can live with her in spite of all this, then give her some time and develop some feelings between you two first. Marriage is not all about sex and if you focus on the other dimensions of the relationship you may win her over to consensual consummation happily. To me, all this sounds wrong to begin with and your consenting to the marriage itself is a matter of concern of poor thinking. Since your mom had convinced you at the outset, ask her opinion, though I think I know her response already and to some extent, I think I know what your response will be too. You need to grow up and make decisions for yoruself, then you would be responsible for them.

Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Why It Is Important To Quit Cigarettes Using Smokeless Tobacco?

The use of any tobacco product has both immediate and long-term effects on your health and overall well-being. Smokeless tobacco stains and wears down your teeth, causes your gums to recede (peel back) and produces mouth sores. Bad breath is also a common problem. Over time, the use of smokeless tobacco can cause mouth cancer. Nicotine from smokeless tobacco also raises blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and can increase your risk of having heart attack. List your own reasons for wanting to quit using smokeless tobacco. In addition to the effects of smokeless tobacco on your health, you may be concerned about saving money or setting a good example for family members and friends. Write down your reasons for wanting to quit. Then keep your list in places where you can see it often. Visit nearby psychiatrist for de-addiction if required.

For more information you can read the book, Managing your Mind and Mood through Food, by Wurtman, J, Judith with Margaret Danbrot. Now we all know that we are what we eat. Various foods affect our moods and our health. Anything in excess will cause us harm and any deprivation too can do damage. Indian foods are very rich in nutrients and are always spiced to 'spice' us up. Vegetarian versus nonvegetarian foods also impact our mood and health. Foods that stimulate tryptophan and serotonin can also perk up your mood and thinking and slow down thinking and depress your mood, respectively. So, in any treatment plan, it is good to incorporate dietary considerations to both provide the necessary impetus and to also aid the medication and its effect.
