Hello lybrate user. Kindly consult a clinical psychologist for your aunt as along with medicines you need therapy/counseling too. These medicines have many side effects so it's important that through therapy you bring changes in the lifestyle of your aunt. Also take proper psychiatric help to know about the medicines. One should not change or remove medicines without proper consultation. Take care.

Hi am 24 years old. Am smoking since 2010. Now I am realized to quit smoking. I tried more than 10 times I was failed. Is there any medication to quit smoking. This time I will not give up. Please help me out. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to visit a doctor for a prescription to quit smoking. Even if you have tried for a hundred times, do not give up. You must try and try again but at each attempt use some learning of the previous attempt and implement it. You will succeed in the end. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

What are way to improve brain thinking capacity? What's it's treatment or natural treatment.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
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.

You are under stress because of that everything seems to be negative. You are also suffering from depressive thoughts. Because of stress depressive thoughts come to you. Better to come from stress. To know stress mangement it is very important to you. Take work as a positive note. Every work is seems to be difficult but we have no chance to come out. If is burden then leave it. Choose another job. Get refresh from time to time. Feel always relaxed. Better to maintain a very good friendly relations in office environment. Feel always comfortable. Share your work problems to your companions. Do not feel burden. Feel always it is my duty do it in a proper manner. Do not be alone. After office work spend most of the time as your own recreation time. Spend with friends. Go movies and parks and hotels. In this time you need to spend much money for yourself. Do not think about money. Spend it in a proper manner for you. Ok best of luck. My good wishes always with you. God bless you.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

The complaints are suggestive of a gender identity disorder where a person feels uncomfortable with his biological sex and wants to live like opposite sex. Usually the problem has childhood onset and an interview with parents is helpful. There are other disorders which need to be excluded. He should see a psychiatrist with expertise in this area and thoroughly understand his problem so that he can take an informed decision on his marriage. Hiding his problem with prospective partner is likely to create more problems later.

In a relationship both partners need to have mutual respect, communication and understanding of each other. If any of these components are missing, relationship would suffer. Its important to understand each other as individual selves and giving personal space and freedom, otherwise conflicts are likely to arise from both sides. To discuss each other needs and what is it that needs to work upon in a relation is another significant requirement. For this, consult a clinical psychologist or a couple therapist who can understand the problem in detail.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. Along wit this engaging yourself in some kind of physical exercise such as walking or yoga. 5. Engaging yourself with something like reading, listening to good upbeat music, gardening will also help you feel little lighter. 6. You may decide to go out and help someone in need. Rendon act of kindness has been proven helpful in both greaving process and depression. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities then revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Hello Doctor, I am a smoker, and nowadays i am facing issue with breathing issue.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It means that you have probably already damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. Please stop your smoking immediately either with the help of a counselor or by joining a Smokers Anonymous group near you. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Follow al the advise I have given earlier related queries to help yourself.

Best way to improve memory power and concentration ?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
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. Take care.

How to remove tension during exam period.?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
How to remove tension during exam period.?
Have a good schedule for completing all the syllabus which you have. Figure out how many days you have, to study the syllabus, and the subjects you have to read. Then make a schedule by dividing the days for each subject according to the subject's importance. In that way you can avoid tension because you know how much time you have to revise for each subject. 2 sleep sufficiently. 8 hours of sleep is necessary for having a calm mind. 3 while you are studying, take a break when you are feeling tired and your mind starts to wander away. If your concentration does not last for an hour, you should take a 5-10 minute break every hour to refresh your mind. With practice and minimal distractions, you might be able to space out your breaks gradually, so you can study productively for longer stretches. 4 exercise. This is one of the best solutions for avoiding tension. Do it every day. 5) avoid junk foods, especially avoid meat, fried foods, chocolates and soft drinks etc. 6) drink lots and lots of water. It's good for you and it helps you to think better. 7) avoid people that stress you. These are the people that are constantly stressed about their grades, brag about how well they performed on past exams, or ridicule you for not knowing what they know. Just focus on your own studying, and you will be all right. 8 don't make a last minute review just before the exam, because it will cause more stress. Tips don't worry because it's just an exam. The more you relax, the better you'll perform in the exam. Don't be nervous over the word'exam. Take it as a'test. Do not study the last minute before an exam. You won't remember much of what you studied. Eat lots of fruits, especially fruits like oranges, which would help to reduce your tension and gives you energy. Ask me privately if any doubts or need more help.

Look you have abused many substances known to produce dependence. If you have anxiety do not self medicate by these drugs as these may harm you, better take professional advise from a psychiatrist for deaddiction and control of your anxiety symptoms.
