You need to take medication as per your doctor's recommendation. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change it in any way. Take it for the prescribed period of time. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse or worsening of symptoms. It becomes more difficult to treat after that.

Sir I m feeling so bad and doesn't concentrate on study during my examination. What kind of problem this is?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is mind diversion to other things of interest to you .10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Bipolar Mood disorder - Is It Hampering Your Relationship?

D.P.M(psychiatry) [Diploma in Psychological medicine] , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Jalna
Bipolar Mood disorder - Is It Hampering Your Relationship?

Bipolar mood disorder, otherwise called manic depressive disorder or manic depression, is a genuine and serious mental problem. It is a disorder that can lead to unsafe conduct, damaged relations and career, and even self-destructive inclinations if it is not treated properly and on time.

Bipolar disorder is portrayed by outrageous changes in the state of mind, from mania to depression. Between these mood swings, a man with bipolar disorder may encounter normal moods as well. Here is how it can affect a relationship:

  • Bipolar disorder can turn into an issue from the very begin of a relationship. Exploring any sentimental relationship - whether it is dating or marriage - can be a risky attempt. Including bipolar disorder with its crazy ride of feelings in with the general problems in a relationship, and connections can turn out to be all the more difficult.
  • However, not everybody with bipolar disorder encounters the state of mood swings of depression and mania, but when those scenes do happen, they can destroy a relationship.
  • During the hyper stage, a person can lose his or her feeling of judgment. That implies spending all their money carelessly, breaking rules, and taking part in dangerous practices like medication and liquor abuse. When you have a partner with the bipolar issue who gets into a hyper stage, it can be extremely harmful to a great degree for the relationship since they might do things that hurt you or may trouble you financially.
  • Any number of things, from work problems to financial issues, can lead to fights and put a strain on a marriage. However, if one of the partners has a bipolar disorder, simple stressors can trigger their mood swings. That might be the reason why around ninety percent of the relations and marriages with a bipolar partner, fail.
  • Having a relationship when you live with bipolar disorder is troublesome. Nevertheless, it can surely be dealt with. It takes the efforts of both the partners to make it work.

The initial step is to get diagnosed and treated for your condition. Your specialist can give you hormone balancing drugs, for example, Lithium, with antidepressants to control your symptoms. Treatment with a clinician or psychologist is additionally vital. With treatment, you can figure out how to control the practices that are putting pressure on your relationship.

Here are a couple of different approaches to alleviate a portion of the weight on your relationship:

  1. Take your medicine as recommended
  2. Take a marriage education and counselling class
  3. Manage your stress in different ways whether it is writing in a diary, taking long strolls, or listening to music
  4. Attempt to adjust work with more calming exercises
  5. Adhere to a customary rest cycle
  6. Eat healthy and exercise frequently
  7. Maintain distance from liquor and caffeine

My grandson is three and half years. He is absolutely normal health wise. He goes to play school and seems to enjoy. He utters words like Amma appa ayyappa. But is not coming out with sentences. Vocabulary is limited. Very cheerful active playful. Some say he has mild Autism. For three months he went through some sort of speech therapy. Slight improvement was found. Eye contact is there. Some times he does tow walking. Beta tests are negative. What could we do? Any advice?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, DNB (Psychiatry)
Psychiatrist, Thrissur
Respected Sir. I would like to request you to please forget about giving your grandson a diagnosis, atleast for now. Autism is quickly becoming a sort of "fashionable" diagnosis among the upper middle class people. I would like to know why you believe that he has Autism and supposing he does, I am sure you have already searched on the internet and consulted many others and already learnt that Autism as of now has no definitive treatment. From what I could gather from your question, he does appear to have mild delays in certain areas of development which I think will improve if given adequate training in that area. Also it would be advisable to keep monitoring his IQ and also identify other deficits as he grows up so that they can be caught early and managed accordingly. I would advise you to be in touch with a Pediatrician, Neurologist and Psychiatrist for regular followup of your grandson.

How can we manage stress? I dont usually take stress easily but once it gets too much I turn out to be an outburst of wrath I am 18 and am a student I just feel headaches eye aches and I feel I cannot breathe once I lose my patience. Please help me get my anger down and help myself be calm even at the hardest moments. Thank you

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You need to attend anger management sessions with a counsellor. Anger is a healthy emotion as it helps yo to know that your needs and expectations are not being met, someone is misusing you or you are getting hurt. Yet if you resort to anger too often and get abusive, then it can become difficult as it will start affecting your relationships. Teens have been known for their anger as they are at the threshold of discovering themselves and establishing an identity for themselves in the world. They are also idealistic in nature and emotionally sway from one extreme to the other. Often they find the world an oppressive place, where people tell a bunch of lies and are often fake. Please meet a counsellor in your city to help you come out of this situation and develop a more realistic view of self and the world.

I am 23 year old. And my memory easily forget anything what I wanna remember. So please advise me some medicine.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

My husband is 64 years old, who is anxiety patient, nowadays he has this habit of contacting girls and getting him getting old. To speak with them, he has some issue with it appears he is having some phsycological problems, how can I deal with this issue.

Dear, your husband is already 64 years and he must be knowing what he is doing. My suggestion would be to leave him alone and do not frustrate him by telling the same thing again and again. The more you frustrate him, the more he will repet his problem behavior. For anxiety, behavior therapy could be practised. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

You cannot change your height anymore, period. But you certainly need to change your friends and come out of their negative influences. There is a famous saying, 'Tell me the friends you keep, and I will tell you who you are' This is the influence your companions have on you. Without their influence, you can be more and more the person you want to be. In the meantime, attend a personality development course, personal grooming course, public speaking course etc. And work at developing your personality. Life is extremely precious and if people hurt themselves for their defects, then all of us should be bruised badly.

I'm suffering from intense depression due to a major change in my life. I'm unable to think positive and my thoughts kills me all day. I can't sleep properly, Even when I do it's all bad thoughts waking me in the middle of the night. I feel like shouting at the walls. I don't feel hungry at all, like it's the least I concern about. I feel very tired and hopeless everyday. Can't concentrate on work or studies. My patience and tolerance has become zero. I tend to shout on anyone on just a slight inconvenience. It's been a few weeks now, I thought time would help. Nothing has changed. Revenge is all I think about without considering the consequences.

Good ​Afternoon, Depressive disorder is not uncommon and affects many people in their lives. The lifetime incidence of this disorder is about 10-15 per 100 people and it is not surprising if it happens in adolescents, adults or even in elderly populations. I believe that your symptoms of depressed mood, sleep difficulties, hopeless/helpless/worthless feelings, guilt that is not usually attributable to you or others i.e. Self blame, problems at work or school affecting daily life and academic performance are all parts of the problem of depression. I would highly recommend that you consult with a psychiatrist to find out the right solution for you. Medications along with therapy is better than either of them alone. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.
