I use to smoke daily and do exercise daily in gym, I want to ask my daily workout can help to nullify the tar I get from smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not at all. Exercise is always good but why would you exercise and yet do your body harm by smoking cigarettes. The concern is not only about tobacco tar, there are at least 4000 chemical substances in cigarette smoke. Most of them are very harmful. There is no way you can nullify the effects of tobacco smoke through exercise. So just give it up and get all the benefits of exercise as you should.

Hi iam rohit am too addicted to cigarette. I smoke 10-12 cigarettes daily and many more something I take cold drink with it. Did it make any sexual impact on me please help me sir.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, the nicotine in cigarette smoke can reduce your erectile capacity and over a period of time it can affect yoru sexual potency. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vaso-constrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. You are advised to stop smoking immediately.

I am 23 years male. Am suffering from severe cough from 7-8 days. I have a habit of smoking. When I cough I feel vomiting sensation.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Even if your cough is not related to your smoking, that you have had this problem for 7-8 days is of concern and tobacco consumption will definitely aggravate it. The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. You should just stop smoking and visit an ENT specialist for a check up.

Armodafinil vs modafinil - which is better? Recently my doctor mentioned modafinil ; however prescribed armodafinil in wakalert 150 mg. Did she forget the modafinil brand or is it same in action. I did not get the same effects as modafinil though. Hence asking.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Armodafinil benefits are similar in a lot of respects to those associated with Modafinil. The wakefulness effect is very noticeable, similar to a powerful dose of caffeine. The exception is that unlike caffeine there are no jitters or nervousness and it does not increase (nor decrease) blood pressure or pulse rate. Armodafinil is considered to be more safe and has almost zero addictive potential (Modafinil does have a slightly higher potential for side effects and tolerance). Unlike Modafinil, Armodafinil will not actually disturb your existing sleep patterns. This means that even after using the supplement you will not experience a sudden drop off in effects and will be quite able to go to sleep and at the same time as normal. You will also wake up at your regular hour. While Modafinil users often say that it is impossible to sleep within 5-10 hours of taking a dosage of this drug, Armodafinil does not cause the same result. It is interesting that some regard this as a positive while other may see it as a negative if they are looking for a prescription drug that helps them stay awake for long hours.

Am unable to sleep. Due to tensions how can I have a peaceful sleep. While I sleep my mind was in disturbed way about studies job. How can I get a relaxed sleep.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Try to start your day early in the morning. Write down the things that you want to do during the day, and follow that routine. Have healthy food and on time. Have plenty of water. You need some physical exercise, like walk, jog, run, cycling, gym, yoga. Choose whatever you like and do it. This will help you in releasing your stress and when the body is tired it will help you in having a good sleep. It appears that you are having lots of tension/stress. Please try to analyse the causes and contributing factors of your stress. Try to search for best options to reduce this stress. Share your emotional burden with family and friends whom you trust. If all this does not help then talk to a counsellor who will help you in understanding and managing stress which will result in you having peace of mind and getting required sleep. All the best.

He has Dyslexia. Please try Counselling. I need further information about school/Home environment and any other behavioural changes you notice. Dyslexia is an ongoing difficulty that has to be managed by parents and teachers together. Parents specially should be keenly aware of the symptoms and many manifestations of a Learning Disability, and initiate immediate action if they suspect anything. The Dyslexia Association of India recommends a comprehensive test if need be. This assessment can serve to put at ease many a worry that may be plaguing a parents mind. It can serve as a platform for them to be able to understand what is actually going on in the child's academic sphere and how as the first line of defense you as a parent can help your child. We would like to share with you, that an assessment with the Dyslexia Association of India is a Not For Profit activity. In fact it is time and money well invested. Its is an investment in knowing the strengths and weakness of your child and making an attempt to understand the child better. As a parent there are several important facts to consider where you child is concerned. Early intervention and diagnosis is an absolute must. Several conditions can induce dyslexic type tendencies as far as academic performance is concerned. Hearing Impairment, Poor vision, Glare from the board, bright light, supersensitive hearing. Making sure the child feels valued and loved. This is just not the parents responsibility, this is important at school too. Remember your child will spend more time with other adults and their peers than they spend with you. A dyslexic child will probably not be able to remember the stuff he needs for school the next day. It is important to work with the teacher to make sure you know what he needs for school. A good teacher will help; remember it is in their interest too to make sure the day goes smoothly! Help pack their school bag. Routine can be good. Remember a Dyslexic child will also have strengths that you may not, he or she may be artistic, musical. They are of course just as intelligent as their non-dyslexic peers! Its just works differently. Their long-term memory may be better than yours. They have to operate in visual and imaginative environment, as adults we get out of practice. If they have to research something for school, get the video or tape. Good teaching is not just talk and chalk While the symptoms relating to Dyslexia have been described earlier on, parents may want to keep the following in mind where their children are concerned. These three issues are the basic building blocks of academic performance and any difficulty usually shows up here first. Reading Reading and the problems that the child may display. Hesitant and laboured reading, especially out loud Omitting or adding extra words Reading at a reasonable rate, but with a low level of comprehension Failure to recognize familiar words Missing a line or reading the same line twice Losing the place or using a finger or marker to keep the place Difficulty in pin-pointing the main idea in a passage Finding difficulty in the use of dictionaries, directories, encyclopaedias Writing Writing and the problems you may see. Poor standard of written work compared to oral ability Poor handwriting with badly formed letters Good handwriting but production of work extremely slow Badly set out work with spellings crossed out several times Spells the same word differently in one piece of work Has difficulty with punctuation and grammar Confuses upper and lower case letters Writes a great deal but loses track of the main idea. Wanders off from the main point. Writes very little but to the point Has difficulty taking notes in lessons Finds organization of work and personal timetable difficult Clearly knows more than he can commit to paper Mathematics Mathematics and the issues associated with Maths. It is not Mathematics that is the problem with the child. Mathematics being a pure language is fairly straightforward. It is the same problems that we see in the other subjects across the curriculum that is the main issue. So what are the main issues? Difficulty remembering tables and formulae Finds sequencing difficult Confusing signs such as + and x The child can think at a high level in mathematics, but needs a calculator to remember basic facts Misreads questions that include words Confuses directions - left and right Finds mental arithmetic at speed very difficult Does not put the number in the tenth and hundred?s place correctly and the decimal under the decimal when adding or subtracting.

My father (age 55) having a problem of drinking alcohol. He also patient of diabetes and liver problems but he is not quitting drinking habit. Is there any solution to prevent my father to drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, the decision to want to quit must come from the addict himself. In this case, there is a danger to his life (being diabetic and already having liver damage), if he continues, and therefore the decision must be made by responsible others. If this is difficult for you, do get the counsel and help of an elderly relative whom he respects and let him do the convincing. If he does not cooperate, then take the decision and call in the rehabilitation center to just take him away. He may be what people refer to as an addict on ?skid row? i.E. Only death can stop him ? 20% of alcoholics are on skid row, world over. Knowing that someone else responsible has to make that decision for him and will do him the favor of a life-saving course of action, do so without any hesitation. Do not feel any guilt about doing this because you will surely save his life, and perhaps his health.

Don' t worry. Time will take care of that. Please assure that you don' t obsess with what happened. You may consult a psychological counselor. Take care.

Hello, I am taking benadryl as a sleep aid since 4 years and due to depression and stress I increased my dose upto 150 ml a day. I want to know the side effects.

Hi lybrate-user, There are treatments without medication to completely overcome depression and stress, why do not you undergo treatment and counselling. Do not use Benadryl for other symptoms. There is a well known proverb that is "Too much of anything is good for nothing" Benadryl overdose causes sedation, tiredness, dry mouth, nose and tongue, loss of coordination, blurred vision and many more. Addiction to anything will weaken your physique, your skin tone, your youthfulness will vanish slowly. Why instead undergo treatment and counselling. If interested contact me for an online consultation so that I could help you better and overcome your problem without any side effects. Take care. Do not use such ways to solve your problem, it is not good for health. Ofcourse depression and stress are normal among others, I do not know exactly what is your problem, if you feel free to discuss this issue, you are most welcome. Take care. Life is short we need to experience both happiness and sadness in life, we cannot run away from natural happenings in our life, but what we can prevent, we can, but not everything. It is part and parcel of our living in this advanced modern world. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Best option would be to visit nearest patanjali chikitsalay for advice. The. Medicines etc they prescribe are free from harmful side effects as compared to allopathic medicine. Plus, they can suggest pranayama that naturally boosts mental and physical health. That should be the best start for your child. Also, watch and practice as shown on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will see so many small children doing what is being taught on way to good health.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, it may be postpartum depression. Please consider the following sings: inability to sleep or sleeping more than normal change in appetite extreme concern and worry about the baby or a lack of interest or feelings for the baby feeling unable to love the baby or your family anger toward the baby, your partner, or other family members anxiety or panic attacks fear of harming your baby; these thoughts may be obsessive, and you may be afraid to be left alone in the house with your baby. Irritability sadness or excessive crying difficulty concentrating or remembering feelings of doubt, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, or restlessness lethargy or extreme fatigue loss of interest in hobbies or other usual activities mood swings marked by exaggerated highs and lows feeling emotionally numb. Its better to show her to a psychiatrist. Also, increase physical activity by introducing aerobic exercises, yoga, pilates or stretching regimens to your daily routine. Physical activity can help the body release mood-improving endorphins. Eat well. A nutritious diet, complete with fruits, vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains will help you feel better. If you are breastfeeding, eating well becomes even more crucial as your nutrients pass their way to your baby. Avoid high-sugar foods like soda, caffeine, and alcohol. All of these can aggravate postpartum depression by altering your mood in certain ways. For example, caffeine can make you anxious and alcohol is a depressant. All the best.

Your memory may be fine, it's your attention that seems to be problematic. Adult adhd (attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder) or add (attention-deficit disorder) are very common and highly under-diagnosed. If your brain doesn't pay proper attention to an information then it cannot retain it. Hence you won't remember it. Other signs are difficulty in planning and organizing, easy distractibility, impulsivity, losing your belongings, mismanaging your time, etc. To get a proper diagnosis however, you need to see a good psychiatrist.
