My wife Age 34 is suffering from Schizophrenia .Please suggest medicine that will not increase Blood sugar, Cholesterol and Prolactin hormone and muscle Cramp.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Schizophrenia is treatable with medicines but one can't predict that it's curable. It means one can have remission of symptoms with medicines but symptoms can reoccur if proper treatment is not taken. Schizophrenia is a continuous illness and with proper medicines it can be treated. Thanks, hope this helps you. If you have more queries you can ask in follow up. Please write your history of complaints also.

1. Me and my spouse, children, my parents are living as a joint family but my spouse like to be separate from my parents. I'm an only son of my parents but she is not understanding the reality and she is not happy with my parents. What I have to do? Give me the solution.

Hello lybrate-user, I can imagine you are in a tricky position, almost sandwiched between wife and parents. It is best to defer this decision as much as possible. Do not show eagerness to come to a conclusion to your wife. Just try to pacify her everytime she raises a complain, talk to your father if you feel some thing about your mother's behavior is troubling your wife, so that he can suggest some changes to your mother indirectly and keep your wife happy by taking her out over the weekends, buying her what she likes occassionally and taking her and your kid (s) out for a holiday once in 6 months. If your wife is interested in some hobbies or if she can work somewhere encourage her to do that. Appreciate all her efforts and achievements. You will notice after some time she will not be thinking about it so strongly. Good luck.

Today I had a breakup with a girl ,then I started crying a lot. Then I was in very depression mind and with this depression mind I started spending time on Facebook, and a person in fb told me to show my penis ,in that person's profile there was a girl's photo and I post image of my penis to that person and afterwards I came to know that person is a bisexual gay. Now ,currently I am in very depression. Suicidal thoughts are coming in my mind. And the main thing is that I am very spiritual. BECAUSE OF SEVERE EXTREME DEPRESSION DUE TO BREAKUP, MY MIND DIDN'T WORK AND I HAD POSTED image of my penis to a bisexual gay.In future ,i will not do this type of mistake. Is it wrong according to Religion? Will I go to hell after death?

Hi lybrate-user! I can understand the pain of depression you had undergone because of whigh you were craving for love and care and when you finally found a girl who could give you words of love and care you lost yourself and without thinking twice you did this mistake. Mistakes if done unknowingly is forgiven by God. But in future do not do this mistake again. If you really need someone to care and love you choose the right path of getting married by searching a perfect match. If not wait for a girl who would definitely come and fall in your love. You can of course have good girl friends and boy friends who will be with you forever to be with you and help you overcome depression. Sex is not the answer to recover from depression. Having sex or sex chat is not wrong, but with whom you have sex (wife or GF) does matter a lot. The same is Sex chat also (wife or GF). Should not chat with anyone whom you come across very deeply without knowing well about them. It is very dangerous to show yourself naked to some unknowing person unless otherwise they are related to u. Instead you can seek a Professional Psychologist or a Psychaitrist or a Counsellor to overcome depression. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. Take Care. Be Good. Do Good how much you can. Do not believe everyone. Believe those who are your well wishers. Try spending time with those who really love you like your parents, siblings, cousins and friends. If depressed always seek Professional help instead of going in a wrong path. Take care. With regards

Dear Lybrate user. I understand. Some physical diseases are thought to be prone to be made worse by mental factors such as stress and anxiety. At any given time, a person's mental state can affect the degree of severity of a physical disease. Physical symptoms that are caused by mental factors are also called somatization or somatoform disorders. I think your problem is PSYCHOSOMATIC PROBLEM. I suggest online counseling and psychotherapy. Take care.

Dear, you are young and therefore you are infactuated. At this age, you cannot love another person mindfully because you are not mature enough to understand some body. Secondly, now you are disappointed. Any decision taken in haste during emotional period, always is false decisions. Wait and watch. How can you say that he will leave you? how can you predict your future? now is not the time for that. Wait. Concentrate on your education and career. Rest we will see in future. Take care.

Dear user, 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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

How To Overcome Infidelity

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS
Sexologist, Delhi
How To Overcome Infidelity

Over the years, infidelity has surfaced as the single most common reason that has the ability to shatter and dismantle a perfectly happy relationship. Infidelity can occur in any and every form of relationship and in each of them it is deemed as unacceptable and uncalled for. Lack of affection has been generally identified as the primary cause why people stray.

However, there are other reasons too that cause infidelity. Some of them are:

  1. Bad judgment: The person who is held responsible for going astray may actually be the victim of bad judgement and an impulsive decision. There may not be anything wrong with the marriage, but momentary attraction and a rash decision are possible reasons that lead a person astray.
  2. Search for an emotional connect: The lack of emotional connect with the partner can be a possible reason for infidelity. An unquenchable thirst for attention and the need to be flattered as well as finding an emotional connect with a new person causes infidelity. Though the most common and devastating outcome of infidelity is the end of a relationship, there are ways, which helps one to overcome infidelity. Some of them are as follows:
  3. Ending the affair immediately: The first and foremost step that you must take in overcoming infidelity is to end the affair immediately. If your relationship is important to you, then it would require your complete investment both physically and emotionally. You must snap all contacts with the other person and concentrate on rebuilding your relationship with renewed faith and trust.
  4. Open discussion: If you want your relationship to work then you must have a completely free and open discussion with your partner. Coming clean about your past affair is imperative if you want to begin anew. Your partner deserves a complete, honest discussion and you must do it delicately and with a lot of care.
  5. Willingness to compromise: Beginning a relationship after confessing about the past relationships requires a lot of hard work and compromises. It will take a long time for the relationship to be what it was before the infidelity and you should take complete responsibility for it as well have a willingness to compromise on certain issues.
  6. Marriage therapy: Apart from the attempt to amend yourself, you can also use the help of a marriage therapist. A marriage counselor or a therapist, through prolonged discussions and sound counselling can avert the possible ending of the relationship.

I am 24 yrs old female. I am not able to concentrate on anything. I get headache very easily. I cannot sleep. Most of the time I cry too much and sometimes I want to end my life. Am I suffering from depression or its just thyroid problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am most certain it is depression and it is an anger related one too. Life is very precious and no matter how bad the situation is do not even think about suicide. If it keeps coming back to you talk to someone regularly. Any way I think you must meet with a counselor and if that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor too, you must. But your cooperation is a must with both therapies. Your concentration will definitely be affected under these circumstances. The earlier you treat this condition the better. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

When a woman is pregnant they crave a lot of what seems like peculiar foods, including non-food substances. It is believed to be sometimes related to a deficiency. In your case of slate consumption could indicate a deficiency of iron. Anyway it is advisable to go for a thorough medical check up and see if there is any deficiency in any vitamins or minerals. Since it is a non-food item it is better to avoid it and supplement your diet, if there is any deficiency. Food itself is so toxic for various reasons and chemical substances may be even more highly contaminated, and therefore it is best avoided. Anything that you consume and enters the blood will affect the unborn child!

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. We cannot help you unless we speak to your son. There could be many reasons for his frustration and lack of interest in his BTech. There could be some disappointment. We need to talk to him to know what troubles him in such a magnitude. I suggest online counseling for him. Take care.

Nail-biting behaviour may be one of the symptoms of anxiety. Spend some quality time with him. Let him speak about his frustrations, anger, resentments, fears or any other negative emtions from his school, social and family lives periodically. Try some yoga&meditation techniques from a qualified yoga teacher who can design for his age. These may help him reduce his anxiety levels. Apart from these, there are some behaviour therapeutic techniques which can be useful if given by a psychiatrist/psychlogist.

I can't remember anything what I studying Please help me out or give me a suggestion, what to do for better memorising.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.
