Zemoist Eye Drop is known to be a loop diuretic, also known as a water pill. The drug when taken reduces the amount of salt that the body absorbs. The excess salt is then excreted by the body through the urine. The drug is primarily used to control fluid retention in the body of patients suffering from liver disease, kidney problems and congestive heart failure. Thus, the drug helps in the creation of more urine which gets rid of excess fluid and salt produced in the body.

You can take this medicine orally with a meal or without. Try not to take the drug around your bedtime so as to prevent the urge to urinate throughout the night. The dosage prescribed, usually depends on your age, your health and your body?s response to the drug. In case of children the dosage is also determined according to their weight. You doctor will first start you off with a low dose to see how your body accepts the drug. If you do not develop any side effects he may increase the dosage.

Side effects are a common occurrence when you take any medication. While some side effects are quite common and disappear as your body adjusts to the drug, others are more severe and can create complications. Zemoist Eye Drop can cause some minor side effects like dizziness, problems with vision, headache and faint feeling. If you do experience dizziness, ensure that you move slowly to avoid any accidents.

Zemoist Eye Drop can result in severe dehydration as it creates the need to urinate frequently. Therefore, if you do experience symptoms like weakness, confusion, drowsiness, crams in the muscles, nausea or feel excessively thirst contact your doctor and seek medical helps immediately.

Very rarely do patients suffer from an allergic reaction to Zemoist Eye Drop. But if it does occur consult your doctor and get treatment done.

Because of tension of study I got in depression. What can I do for this problem. Please help me.
Hie, If you are having one of that dark days of depression ? its okay ? Its okay to feel that darkness If you're going through some sort of depression, I know it feels bad, bad enough that it might be even so hard for you to get out of your bed but just remember ? depression comes to the people who uses it as fuel ? There are two types of people The one who becomes the victim Second is the one who accepts the fact that ? Depression makes him/her stronger ?Depression makes him/her wiser ?Depression makes him/her grow I know its painful for you because life's freaking painful but suffering is a CHOICE Just remember ? you are not built to be average You should study hard! I know, It can be stormy now but it won't rain forever. Someone wise said" everything in the end will eventually be okay and if its not okay then its not the end" AND JUST JUST READ THIS STORY. I had something similar to this when I was a senior in college. I had been so antisocial and fatigued, that I literally lost contact with people even in the next room and all down the hall in my dorm. I, of course, had reached a point where I had to at least pass every class that I was taking. I was in a relationship that I wasn't sure was right for me. And, I simply could not focus, and felt so sad. I happened to be taking a psych class. One day, after class, I followed my psych prof to his office and very nervously told him how I was feeling. His advice, of course, was given to me as a teacher, since we did not have a doctor patient relationship. This is a summary of his suggestions for me. He told me that I should make any decisions that I could, even if in the long run that decision had to be examined again. He felt that the inner debate on making a decision about my relationship was taking too much emotional energy. I was at a point where I just could not get any work done. He asked me what I thought the longest time was that I could study/do my work. I told him maybe 10 or 15 minutes. So he said to begin with 10 minutes. Take a break. Think about what you accomplished. Walk outside for a few minutes. When you go back into the dorm, say hello to anyone you see. Just hello and their name if you know it. If there are any doors wide open on the hall, just lean in a bit and say hello, and name. Then my next session should be 15 minutes. Then the same as above. He suggested that I have some kind of system to get me back on track after the breaks?have a friend check on me every hour or so, use a timer, have my parents call every hour, use an alarm clock?anything that would mark an ending and beginning to work. And then 20 more minutes of work and a break with leaving the dorm, saying hello to people, and thinking about whatever I wanted. He asked what I thought was reasonable break time and I just didn't know. So we talked about the most imposing things I needed to get done, and the amount of time that would take and the due date. So we decided that my breaks should be no more than 15 minutes. If there were things that took a larger block of time, like getting lunch or dinner, then I would extend the break to 30 to 40 minutes and then I returned to the work-break schedule. So after 15 min. Of work, then a break thinking about what I had accomplished, going outside, speaking to people was for the first 5 days, increasing to 20 min. Of work and then 30 minutes the last week. It worked those last few of weeks of school. I felt like a robot and that is exactly what I needed to survive that time period. He met with me again for an hour, after a week and then an hour the next week. Of course, he agreed to help me based on my agreeing to get therapy as soon as I finished up. In summary, I think what he was trying to do was stabilize me and put me into an autonomic program, so I could accomplish something, He also felt that I should at the least make human contact by speaking to people by name. Of course, what happened was people saying hi in return, asking about this or that, and a few people dropping by my room to chat. And, frequently, I found myself stretching out the length of the work time. I had to limit my talks with the person in my relationship, and not be with him for about 3 weeks. It was worth it since I did not want to lose an entire semester of school with only 3 weeks left. I hope this helps. You need to talk this through with your parents so that you can see a therapist as soon as possible. If for some reason you cannot approach your parents with this, either choose a teacher, a minister, other family member, or any adult who can be your advocate with your parents. You school or local community may also be able to provide help or counselling. By gaining some control over your life, it makes you feel more alive and helps you think about solutions. You will be in my thouGHT. THANK yOU All The best.

Hi lybrate-user! HIV spreads only through sex or blood transfusion and not through drinking or eating, but still if you have doubt just wait for a week or so and take a blood test. Before that confirm if your friend has HIV or not. Precaution is better than cure. Moreover alcohol itself will kill the virus if the blood drop fell in the alcohol. To rule out your doubt you can take a test in a week or so. Better confirm with your friend if he has taken all the blood tests etc. Indirectly just to clear your doubt. Take care. Be relaxed.

Slower Heartbeat - How It Can Make You Feel?

Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Slower Heartbeat - How It Can Make You Feel?

Having bradycardia implies that your heart beats very slowly. For the vast majority, a heart beats from sixty to hundred pulses a minute while very few are viewed as ordinary. In case your heart beats under sixty times each minute, it is slower than usual. A moderate heart rate can be ordinary and solid. On the other hand it could be an indication of an issue with the heart's electrical framework.

For a few people, moderate heart rate does not create any issues. It can be an indication of being exceptionally fit. Sound youthful grown-ups and sports persons frequently have heart rates of fewer than sixty beats a minute. In other individuals, bradycardia is an indication of an issue with the heart's electrical framework. It implies that the heart's regular pacemaker isn't working right or that the electrical pathways of the heart are disturbed.

A moderate heart rate may make you:

  1. Feel blurry eyed or woozy.
  2. Feel short of breath and feel that it’s harder to work out.
  3. Feel tired.
  4. Have neck pain or an inclination that your heart is beating or rippling (palpitations).
  5. Feel bewildered or experience difficulty concentrating.
  6. Black out, if a moderate heart rate causes a drop in pulse.

A few people do not have side effects, or their indications are mild to the point that they think they are quite recently part of getting more seasoned. You can discover how quick your heart is beating by checking your heart rate. In case your pulse is moderate or uneven, talk to a specialist.

How bradycardia is dealt with depends on what is causing it. Treatment likewise relies on symptoms. Given below are some of the symptoms:

  1. In case harm to the heart's electrical framework causes your heart to pulsate too quickly, you will presumably need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a gadget put under your skin that revises the moderate heart rate. Some people might have a kind of bradycardia that requires a pacemaker.
  2. In case another medical issue, for example, hypothyroidism or an electrolyte irregularity, is bringing about a moderate heart rate, treating that issue may cure the bradycardia.
  3. In case a medicine is making your heart to pulsate too gradually, your specialist may change the dosage or recommend an alternate drug. In case you can't quit taking that medicine, you may require a pacemaker.

Bradycardia is frequently the aftereffect of another heart condition, so finding a way to carry on with a heart-solid way of life will enhance your general health. This may include:

  1. Showing at least a bit of restraint and dedication to a good diet routine that includes a considerable amount of organic products, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and low-fat or nonfat dairy foods.
  2. Being gradually on most, if not all, days of the week. Your specialist can let you know what type of exercise is okay for you.
  3. Getting more fit in case you have to, and maintaining a solid weight.
  4. Not smoking.
  5. Overseeing other medical issues, for example, hypertension or elevated cholesterol.

Sexual Health - Male

Sexual Health - Male

Here's something men may not be willing to tell their women: Sometimes a man gets a sore penis and, for a while at least, may not feel in the mood for sex. That's not to say that the mood will necessarily last for a long time, or that he may not find himself eager to jump into bed with his partner despite his sore penis. Even when they know there may be some pain, many men will happily give in to the lure of sex - even if the soreness makes them regret it later. But since his long-term penis health affects his partner as much as it does him, women need to know a little about the sore penis.

It's a societal thing

The fact is, men can often have a sore penis - much more often than one might think. And it's the kind of thing they're more willing to talk about with other guys than with women. (Although, to be fair, much of the time that they tell their buds they have a sore penis, it's really just a way of bragging about the incredible sex they had last night.)

Still, many men feel that society pressures them to present an uber-macho façade where matters of the penis are concerned, especially with the women they take to bed. They feel an expectation that they can perform at the drop of a hat - and that they're supposed to want to perform 24/7. But even the horniest of men are still only human and can fall prey to any number of soreness-inducing situations, such as:

- Overdoing it. Probably the most common reason a guy complains of a sore penis is because he's been having too much sex (either with a partner or with his hand - or both). Remember that penis skin is very sensitive and filled with nerve endings - hence, the incredible pleasure a guy gets from sex. Too much activity can simply overwork the poor little fellow - a situation which a little rest usually can cure.

- Aggressive action. Sometimes, though, the problem isn't too much penile activity - it's too rough penile activity. Especially if it's activity in which there is insufficient lubrication. So a guy who thrusts at too furious a pace, or whose penis is stroked at a lightning-fast pace by a hand devoid of lubrication, is going to find himself with a raw, painful penis.

- Allergy. Sometimes the soreness comes not from activity on that sensitive penis skin but from an allergic reaction - to chemicals in soap, fragrances in the detergent that cleans his underwear, etc. It causes a rash or other reaction which in some cases makes the manhood a little too tender to touch.

- A crotch punch. Getting hit in the groin with a baseball or other hard object can cause soreness that may last for days. Understandably.

Be gentle

So if a guy does complain about a sore penis, it helps if his partner is understanding. And she should know that he is likely going to want to get back into action earlier than he probably should - in which case, his partner can help by going slowly and helping him to ease back into things rather than jumping in at full throttle.

Women whose men complain of a sore penis should also encourage them to daily apply a first class penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Keeping the penis healthy means it will recover from whatever causes the soreness more quickly. The best crèmes can also help reduce the soreness. For example, one with both a high-end emollient (like Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) can "double team" affected penis skin, re-moisturize, and help alleviate soreness. By the same token, if aggressively rough handling has de-sensitized the penis, a crème with a neuroprotective ingredient like L carnitine can help restore minor loss of sensation.

5 Effects Of Not Having Sex

Sexologist, Panchkula
5 Effects Of Not Having Sex

An important part of your adult life and a way of expressing your love, sex can be an effort when, both you and your partner do not feel up to it.

However when you completely put a stop to having sex, these 5 things can happen: 

  1. You feel more anxious: A study by a group of Scottish researchers reveals that when you go without sex for a long time, you are unable to cope with the pressures of life. Couples who had sex for at least once over a 14 day period were able to cope with stressful situations, the study revealed. During sex, your body releases chemicals like oxytocin and endorphins that leave you with happy feelings. When you abstain from it, you shut down an avenue to get rid of pent-up emotion or energy.
  2. It raises the possibility of prostate cancer in men: Research reveals that men who have sex regularly experience a 20% fall in their chances of developing prostate cancer. The reason is frequent episodes of ejaculation bring about the removal of harmful matter from the prostate gland.
  3. You become more prone to colds and flu: Less sex can affect your body's ability to fight off germs, making you prone to common colds and flu. A research by the Wilkes-Barre University shows that couples who have sex one or two times a week witness a 30% boost in the production of immunoglobulin A or IgA (an antibody that is the body's first line of defense against germs) compared to people who don't.  
  4. It increases the risk for erectile dysfunction (ED) in men: Findings published in the American Journal of Medicine highlight the fact that men who have sex less frequently are two times more likely to experience ED than men who have sex about once a week. According to the researchers of the study, frequent sex allows the penis to maintain its strength and effectiveness.
  5. A drop in Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) for women: One good thing comes out of not having sex. It is said that about 80% of UTI occurs within 24 hours of having sex. During intercourse, bacteria from the vagina get transported into the urethra, leading to the infection of the area. For women, the decision to not have sex can reduce the risk of developing this condition.

6 Foods That Are Must For Healthy Bones!

A healthy diet is not only important for that slick waist line, but it also keeps your bones healthy. Two of the most important nutrients needed for healthy bones are Calcium and Vitamin D. Calcium helps in strengthening your bones while Vitamin D facilitates calcium absorption in the body. If the bones are not healthy, it can lead to bone disorders such as osteoporosis and rickets.

If you want to keep your bones fighting strong and healthy, here are some diet tips that you can follow:

  1. Consume yoghurt: A very good breakfast option, Yoghurt contains 30% of calcium and 20% of Vitamin D as per RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance), both being vital for healthy bones. It also contains little in terms of calories so that you don’t have to lose sleep over your waistline.
  2. Milk: If you think milk is just for kids, think again. Milk is one of the best sources of protein and calcium; in fact it contains 30% of calcium as per RDA. So yes! Drop all inhibitions and drink that glass of warm milk to keep your bones healthy.
  3. Cheese: Another milk based product, cheese is also rich in protein and calcium. You need to make sure that the cheese you consume is the fat free version in order to restrict calorie intake.
  4. Sardines: If you are planning on getting a fish sandwich for lunch, then you are on the right track. Sardines are not only rich in Omega 3 Fatty acids, but they also contain calcium and Vitamin D is high amounts.
  5. Eggs: Don’t fear the egg yolk and dispose it off. Not so fast now! Egg yolk contains Vitamin D, an essential nutrient that facilitates calcium absorption in the body. Eggs are also one of the best super foods as they are a powerhouse of various nutrients.
  6. Spinach: Remember Popeye, the cartoon sailor whose muscular frame was attributed to spinach. Now let’s get down to the facts. Spinach contains calcium, fiber and iron – all very essential for your body. Consuming spinach regularly is one ‘go green’ way to keep your bones healthy.

How Your Emotions Can Affect Your Health?

How Your Emotions Can Affect Your Health?

Reasons why some respond to treatment, some do not. This has nothing to do with skills, luck, faith of either the doctor or the patient.  'You are not a drop in the ocean but an ocean in every drop.' RUMI

What did he mean by that, every cell in our body is intelligent to think and act and we have 60 trillion cells in our body and our health depends a lot on the harmonic balance and cohesion of the cells with each other. In the movie “Eat, Pray, Love”, Julia Roberts visits a wise man in Bali, and he advises her not to try too hard to meditate, in fact, he suggests that meditation is nothing but smiling and the line that is a kicker is, ‘Smile with your Liver’

If you believe that this is just a metaphor, lets look at the other end of the spectrum to prove just how crucial this is. Let us say you hold a negative emotion towards somebody, something or some event in your life and each time you think of that, your whole body relives the emotional upheaval of that association. Your mind doesn’t have a mind of its own and doesn’t know if the event is happening in real time or it is being replayed so it produces the same stress hormones namely cortisol each time and every cell of your body starts feeling the same emotion of let us say ‘Hatred’ towards that event, person or experience all over again.

The body isn’t at ease,  this is a state where the condition of disease sets in. If you continue to live in that state, your cells are now getting conditioned to live in the same state. The Upanishads talk about Yatha pinde tatha brahmande” as is the atom so is the universe.

The health of a person depends on how well all the systems of the body and the 60 trillion cells play the melody of harmony together…when the cells are living in a state of hatred. They soon start exhibiting that with each other and killing healthy cells in the body. This leads to many forms of Auto-immune diseases, like Rumi said “you are a not a drop in the ocean, but an ocean in every drop”

Be careful of your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions. Learn to forgive people, not because they deserve it, but because you need it.

Stay Happy, Stay Healthy!
