I am 31 year old male. From last one year I may be suffering from depression. I talk very less, doesn't meet anyone even my friends. In fact I am not enjoying anything. It is because of my marriage which is never been smooth. My wife's behaviour was very weird towards me. If I try to get her close she behaves in such a way that I am a stranger. I got married her in April 2015 but we hardly stay 30 days together. She never responding any of my question or even I tried to talk her she got violent. I wanted divorce from her but she doesn't want. She also not living with me. How can I focus on other things and I just want to forget her. please advise me.

By eating rat poison, by will be in bigger trouble. Suicidal attempt will not solve your problem. Instead, please discuss your troubles with someone you trust. You need to find support from your relatives or friends. If that is not possible please talk to a counsellor.

Dear, if you cannot explain what is happening to you, then why are you worrying about it. If you want an expert's opinion, you should be able to explain the symptoms properly. Instead, just ignore the feelings and emotions you have, just leave them, enjoy your education and life. Take care.

Depression can be reactive, due to external issues like financial crisis and interpersonal problems or depression can be endogenous, i.e due to changes within oneself, which happens due to altered neurotransmission in the mind. Endogenous depression can be very well treated by antidepressants which restore the changes, kindly consult a psychiatrist and seek remedy. All the best.

Depression, stress and anxiety has a direct affect on sexual arousal and performance. A psychiatrist can suggest you the medication for dealing with depression. Besides medication, thought management is an important aspect which is very useful to manage and cope with depression. When your depression reduces and the stress levels come down, you will see an up in your sexual arousal too. Some key guidelines: do exercise, as it releases the same chemicals like dopamine and serotonin which a psychiatrist will give you for depression. Exercising is a natural way to keep depression at bay. 2. Eat healthy: stay away from junk, sweets, maida, fried foods. Eat whole grains, complex carbs, food supplying fatty acids, greens and fruits. 3. Sleep well for 7-8 hours everyday: this detoxifies and rejuvenates the mind and body naturally and reduces stress, tension and worry. 4. Stop thinking too much and worrying: there are something's that are within your control to change and improve. There are some things that you cannot change because they are outside your control for eg weather. Learn to differentiate these things and focus your attention on what you can change positively. Also, treat life with less seriousness. Add humour to your life. Meet people who are friendly, lighthearted, problem solvers and progressive thinkers. Indulging in a hobby or two once or twice a week, takes away the pain and suffering of everyday living, if you don't like what you do and whom you interact with. 5. Attitude of gratitude: each day count your blessings and see how fortunate you are and what you have in life, rather than what you don't have in your life. This will help you to feel happier, content and satisfied with what is working in life and take your mind away from what is not working in your life. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat.

Hi am sumit jha from pune. Please answer me what is smoking effect And how to stop smoking please any idia for stop smoking.

MSC Psychotherapy & Counselling, CHt Hypnotherapy, MD Alternative Medicine, MBBS, Diploma in Public Health
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi There is one technique called Urge Surfing to control the urge of smoking. Urges rarely last for very long. In fact, they almost never last for longer than about 30 minutes, if there is no opportunity to use. If there is no opportunity to use then there is no internal struggle. It is this internal struggle that feeds the cravings. Trying to fight cravings is like trying to block a waterfall. We end up being inundated. With the approach of mindfulness, we step aside and watch the water (cravings, impulses & urges) just go right past. Exercise: Reflecting on Urges Ask yourself whether there have been times when you could not give in to an urge when it presented. Did the urge pass? Most of us will have had past experiences of urges passing. This is an important strategy to identify, as it can greatly improve self-efficacy for riding out urges. The main message is that urges do not have to be acted upon. The Technique of Urge Surfing: Often people try to eliminate the urges by distraction or talking themselves out of them. This usually just feeds the urges and creates the illusion that they are interminable until you give in to them. Suppressing a thought feeling or sensation, including pain ultimately increases it. Rather than trying to distract from or argue with the unpleasant thoughts, feelings or urges, mindfulness simply makes the thoughts, feelings or urges less important. If we just let an urge be – non judgmentally – without feeding it or fighting it (Fighting it is just another way of feeding it anyway) then it will crest subside and pass. Of course they come back again but over a period of time. However each time you overcome a bout of cravings they become less intense and less frequent if we don’t feed the urges and if we don’t give in to them. If we have a slip and give into the impulse we will have increased urges for a while. However we can still apply urge surfing all over again. Urge surfing Practice Watch the breath. Don’t alter it. Let the breath breathe itself. Notice your thoughts. Without judging them, feeding them or fighting them gently bring your attention back to the breath Notice the craving experience as it affects the body. Focusing on one area where the urge is being felt and noticing what is occurring. Notice quality, position, boundaries & intensity of the sensation Notice how these change with the in-breath and out-breath Repeating the focusing process with each part of the body involved. Be curious about what occurs and notice changes over time. The key is replacing the fearful wish that craving will go away with interest in our experience. When we do this we notice the cravings change, crest and subside like waves in the ocean. In this way it becomes more manageable. This is not difficult, as there are many kinds of urges like urges to scratch, to move, to eat, to drink, to go to the toilet etc. When we reflect on this as it becomes clear that all adults including those who consider they have difficult to control repetitive problem behaviours, have the capacity to have urges come and go without acting on them. After all, unless we are physically ill we can all control our need to go to the toilet! What is important is that the sensation or thought of an urge is not one solid unchanging entity. The increased level of mindful awareness of these is capable of noticing how the urge has changed dramatically. Have faith in the process to practice urge surfing successfully.

I am 38 years old man and my concern is that I consume 180 ml alcohol daily. Is it can harm my body.

I am 38 years old man and my concern is that I consume 180 ml alcohol daily. Is it can harm my body.
It will surely harm body. Even weekend drinking produces fatty liver. Daily drinking will surely harm after few months or years. Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. Due to alcohol they and/ or others are affected significantly. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

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.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication. She is 35 and is taking alkepin 200 mg. We have come to know about DHA derivatives of clozapine (clozaprexine) which is considered to be highly safe and with high bioavailability. You are requested to kindly help us by informing availability of clozaprexine in India. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Mr. lybrate-user, I would like to tell one thing, schizophrenia is chronic illness. Basically it requires anti psychotic drugs for treatment. There are numbers of anti psychotic drugs availabale in market for treatment of Schizophrenia. Some drugs are FDA approved, some are superior in one trial but not in other trial. Some are popular in few countries but not FDA approved. Actually selection of proper antipsychotic depends on number of conditions viz. Age, sex, duration of illness, associated co morbid condition, any medical condition, substance history, organicity, prior drug response, socio-economical status etc. As in your case female patient having auditory hallucinations, probably case of schizophrenia needs proper medication consedering above mentioned condition. Now come to your basic question, she is taking clozapine 200 mg. It is also very efficacious drug. You talked about clozaprexine. It is considered as a prodrug of clozapine. It is investigational new drug, originally created at Harward University. Atype of fatty acid (DHA) was added to clozapine in order to increase penetration of blood brain barrier. This drug was initially tested in rats, but no obvous findings have been found in subsequent studies. It is not currently available in INDIA. Ihope it might help you.

You might have seen many but might not have said your symptoms properly. Some psychopathology mimiks depression it might not be so. If the time spent is little and if the doctor is carried away by the word depression then you will be treated by antidepressants and you would not have got a cure. If you have not seen better results prior you undergo psychometric tests from a clinical psychologist from your area and then meet the psychiatrist with the report. That might help as certain things unresolved, unexplored and unexplained might come out in these series of tests. Finally you need to get treated by medicines and if there is a need the Dr. might suggest you psychotherapy too which ll help you in addition to pharmacotherapy.

Get a complete hemogram, TSH and Vitamin B12 level. If there are any abnormalities here, they will need to be corrected. If they are normal, it is almost certainly related to what is known as registration deficit. This occurs due to mild anxiety related problems. They can be easily treated with medicines such as escitalopram, sertraline or paroxetine. It can be started and kept at low doses only. They have no side effects. Some amount of supervision will be needed from doctor. Take care!

Dear liberate user, For anxiety, first engage yourself in some relaxation exercise like deep breathing, yoga, pranayam where you can attend and concentrate on something. This will help you first physiological management of bodily functions . Second, during anxiety state do positive reappraisal of situations instead of thinking negatively or catastrophic interpretation. And last less intake of caffeine or other addictions and follow sleep hygiene too.

How should be concentrate our. Mind. While. Studying at. Night. And hw we should learn correctly?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Lybrate-user. First of all, study times and study methods have to be individualized. However there are certain prerequisites for a good study and learning process. Your mind needs to be focused, should have good concentration levels and no distractibility. If you are easily distracted and less attentive that could be a presentation of attention deficit disorder. So also you need to have only the right amount of stress for study. Learning is a combination of attentive reading, grasping and rehearsing what you learnt. Here are few steps to improve your concentration and learning. - set approachable targets for study everyday - do not stretch yourself beyond your physical or mental limits - study in short periods of 40-50 minutes, take relaxing breaks of 5-10 minutes in between. - do not be overdemanding. Know your limitations, study regularly and steadily. Practice makes a man perfect. If you still have issues with concentration and find it difficult to be attentive while studying, see a psychiatrist soon.
