I have an problem of epilepsy. I used to take medicines of valproic acid by last 10 years. In between whenever I leave this, I got fits. Now I daily take this medicine of 300 mg at night. I need to know, how can I get away from this, and will it impact on my next Gene?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Antiepileptics should not be stopped without neurologist advise. Epilepsy is excessive electrical activity in the brain and valproic acid controls it. If you get seizures when you stop it, definitely it is very much required. Do not keep worrying about this, many famous people including Jonty Rhodes in cricket had epilepsy, just take the tablet and carry on with your other aspects of life. All the best.

How to relax our mind. Tension free stress free, I am a student .but I can't control my anger please help.
Hi Lybrate user, For stress relief you can try all these steps. When it comes to short-term methods, I think the best ones are: Sports - physical exercise raises endorphin levels, which makes us happier. Eating something tasty - raises dopamine levels, which makes us happier. Doing things you love - such as going to the movies or spending time with friends, relaxing. Talking to people - share your concerns and stress with you dearest friends, but make sure they are willing to listen to it. Because we are social animals, communicating to others in difficult times really helps. When it comes to long-term, I would say: Meditation - it has been the biggest game changer for me. Its effects don’t come within a day, but when they do, you will notice how dealing with stress has just become so much easier. You will also have your own quiet place to go to. Understanding and awareness - one of the most effective weapons against stress is awareness. You have to understand that life should not be stressful. Don’t take studies, work or other as the most important things in life. See them for what they are. Don’t forget to stop, analyse your thoughts and understand why you are feeling the way you are. You should do this daily or whenever you feel overwhelmed. When you do come to the conclusion that it is all just a game, stress will lose its grip on you. FOR ANGER YOU CAN TRY ALL THESE STEPS. In the short run, Take a break as soon as you recognize that you're angry. Stop what you're doing, get away from whatever is irritating you, and just take a breather. Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won't relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your "gut. Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax, "take it easy. Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply. Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination. Ask for the support of someone you trust. If you're still upset, sharing your concerns with a close friend or confidant might help. Try to see some humor in what angered you. After you've calmed down and established that you're ready to get over the incident, try to see the lighter side. In the long run, Do some physical exercises. The endorphins from exercise can help you calm down, and moving your body provides a physical outlet for your rage. Cognitive restructuring - Ask yourself honestly if you see everyone and everything as an adversary or an obstacle. Odds are, the world isn't exactly that way - but you think it is. Change the way you think about life. Keep a journal of what upsets you and how you plan to fix it. Lastly, if all else fails, visit a mental health professional. THANK YOU ALL THE BEST.

Depression - 7 Easy Homeopathic Remedies that Help Combat it

Are you suffering from depression? Is it hampering your daily life and activities? Depression is a mental health condition, which is very common in people of all ages around the world. It is a serious medical condition which may occur for several reasons, depending from person to person. Depression should be treated effectively for restoring a healthy state of mind. Among the various modes of depression management, homeopathy is considered to be an effective remedy.

Here is a list of the top homeopathic medicines which are used for tackling depression, along with the symptoms when they are applied:

  1. Arsenicum album: This is an ideal homeopathic medicine for people who worry excessively. It is used in people who are extremely health obsessed. Such people get depressed about failing to reach personal goals in life. The symptoms of such a patient suffering from depression tend to worsen in cold weather, as pain sensitivity increases.
  2. Aurum metallicum: This medicine is effective for workaholic people who have a tendency to feel worthless, despaired and experience suicidal thoughts after failing to achieve personal and professional goals. The symptoms worsen during the night time and during cold seasons. Calming music is beneficial for easing these patients.
  3. Calcarea carbonica: This homeopathic remedy is commonly used in the case of people who become overwhelmed due to work, worry and physical illness of any kind. The development of fatigue, discouragement, confusion, anxiety and self pity are also indicated in such patients. This medicine is also good for depression patients who suffer from sleep disorders, or sweat profusely.
  4. Causticum: This homeopathic medicine is important for curing depression in people who due intense grief resulting from some kind of major loss. The patient may experience forgetfulness and mental dullness. The patient may tend to cry a lot and becomes extra sympathetic towards others.
  5. Cimicifuga: This effective homeopathic remedy is used for people who suffer from bipolarity. They may be quite energetic and talkative during good times, but during periods of depression, they become gloomy and dull. Neck aches, headaches and painful menstrual periods in women are also likely.
  6. Ignatia amara: This homeopathic medicine is used in the case of people who are very sensitive and tend to suppress their feelings of grief and disappointment. They do not want to seem too much defensive, moody, or vulnerable in the eyes of other people. They may burst into laughter and tears all of a sudden without a proper reason. Abdominal cramps, insomnia, and headaches are other symptoms.
  7. Kali phosphoricum: Another effective homeopathic medicine used in the management of depression is Kali phosphoricum. People who need these medicines feel depression after long periods of emotional stress. Nervousness, exhaustion, insomnia, anemia, increased cold sensitivity, and reduced concentration are experienced. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I would suggest you to first consult a psychologist. Regular counselling therapy will help you better manage your emotions. You will also be able to learn to respond in a more mature and positive way to situations which currently triggering anger and sadness. If your psychologist feels that you need to go on medication then she will send you to psychiatrist. Even if you need to start medicine continue your sessions with psychologist. This will help you reduce and eventually stop medicines. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate-user, I would like you to read about fetishism, in psychology, a form of sexual deviance involving erotic attachment to an inanimate object or an ordinarily asexual part of the human body. Fetishism as a mental condition may be defined as the necessity to use a non-genital object in order to achieve sexual gratification. The affected person has created a strong association between an object and sexual pleasure or gratification. The object may be some other body part, an article of clothing, or, less frequently, some more impersonal object. A person with a fetish often spends significant amounts of time thinking about the object of the fetish. Further, the object is intimately related to sexual pleasure or gratification. In the extreme, the presence of the fetish object is required for sexual release and gratification. The person with fetishism frequently masturbates while holding, rubbing, or smelling the fetish object or may ask the sexual partner to wear the object during their sexual encounters. Usually the fetish is required or strongly preferred for sexual excitement, and in its absence there may be erectile dysfunction in males. The condition occurs almost exclusively among men, and most of the objects used relate to the female body or female clothing. The articles of clothing most commonly used are shoes and items of female underclothes. Olfactory sensations are also frequently important. For some people with a paraphilia such as fetishism, paraphilic fantasies or stimuli may be necessary for erotic arousal and are always included in sexual activity, or the presence of the fetish object may occur only episodically. For example, the fetish object may only be necessary for arousal during periods of stress, and at other times, the person is able to function sexually without the fetish or stimuli related to the fetish. If you have any further query, feel free to contact.

It s highly dangerous on a longer run, and not approved by doctors, it can damage the kidneys. Also it carries very very high caffeine which makes you extra alert and can cause abnormal beats in the heart (ventricles). Avoid it.

Because of work stress and irritation in home. May cause for your headache. Do not stress in office. Better to develop cordial relations with your colleagues. Be to feel very flexible in work. Do not feel to burden in work. Feel always in a positive manner. When you come to home please talk in a pleasing manner when they are in a good mood. Tell the situation to your husband take the help of him. If he is not helpful. Then do not care to them. Do not priority to their voice. Listen and leave it. Do not put any words in your mind. Better to prepare your mind like that. Feel flexible. Be happy always. Take personal rest. Spend some more time for yourself. Better to talk in phone when your mood disturbed in home. Professional life is different. And personal is different. Behave according to the situation. Do not feel stress. Be friendly and be happy. Ok all the best.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. In no way you can control what others are going to sy or others says. Even if you do good, there will be people who ridicule and even if you do bad, there will be people who justify you. Therefore do not heed to people who are in no way going shape your life. I suggest you online counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

You are an adult and if in the past you felt you lost your child due to physical and mental stress caused at your in-laws house we suggest you should get the second child delivery done at your own mom's place and then with passage of time everything will be fine and your husband will also be bonded to you more strongly. In case you still need any further information or assistance or any advice you may get back to us on a private consultation.

I have loss memory power. When I learn something I forget that thing. So how can I improve my memory power.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.
