Dear Luise, Since alcohol is a sedative, when you stop drinking there is difficulty in sleeping. The brain gets used to the drinks. It will ask you to give drinks by disturbing your sleep. So, doctors' first medicine when you stop alcohol is a Calmpose kind of drug. There are many types of such drugs - both tablets and injections. Few act only for 2 hours, few acts longer than 24 hours. It will be given for 2-3 weeks initially, when you stop drinking, depending on your need. It is a drug to stop you from suffering withdrawal symptoms. It may be given throughout the day also for few days so that you will not go for alcohol immediately. You will also be given motivational enhancement therapy and stress management therapy in first 12 weeks. You can also start with anticraving drugs like Acamprosate, Baclofen and Naltrexone. They postpone your craving for alcohol. Not immediately - but in 3 months or so. They also make your brain to tolerate less and less alcohol. They are costly and need to be given for 9 months to a year in appropriate dose. You can also ask for aversion therapy with Disulfiram. It makes the alcohol into a poison. The effect of poison, you don't like. You will be OK after taking the drug daily. The drug acts only when alcohol gets into your blood. Since the poison effect happens as soon as you drink, you feel like not drinking or induce vomiting after drinking. This drug is cheap, only less than Rs.2/day. It can be taken for life. Better to assign someone who will give the drug daily to you. May be your wife or mother. All the other drugs you can take by yourself.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You will get a job according to your qualification. In getting a job if you see status or salary in the initial stages, you may not be satisfied at all. Secondly you should learn to like the job you are doing, instead of waiting for a job of your own liking. I suggest online motivation counseling. Take care.

Well you seem troubled by many things and they are not all good for you especially of your age. Ideally, you need to reach out to a counselor. At your age your hormones i.e testosterone, will go through a spurt in production and will affect you in ways unknown to you. It may cause confusion, increase your sex drive, make you more aggressive and rebellious, and adorn you with pimples and acne. Some symptoms like breaking down, over thinking etc. can all become permanent along with other traits to turn into pathology. Anyway, you must exercise regularly, eat healthily, sleep adequately and express your feelings often. Do not withdraw from people and take some courses to improve your socialising skills.

Hi sir. I am very intelligent in my childhood and upto my +2 but now a days in engineering. I can't get memorized the topics. I am forgetting all I read, I have lack of concentration problem. Is smoking n drinking are the reasons? I have exams very soon expecting soon reply for the problem.

Because of your age at that time when you were in +2, there may have been hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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. Smoking and drinking too has an effect if you indulge in them.

Hi I 28 years old. I suffer from svere heaeache, fatigue and anxiety. I cant even sleep proper. Totally depressed dont know why.Please suggest

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your depression is definitely anger related, and you are under some stress. Both these situations have not been dealt with for your own reasons and they are causing you the distress. Meet with a counselor and express your feelings of anger and fear. Besides that do regular exercise, do yoga and meditation, socialize a lot, eat a healthy diet of proteins with all fruits and vegetables, drink lots of water, and with a revived sleep pattern you should be back on your feet in a fully functional manner, pretty soon. Get some sunshine of at least half an hour every day too. If you are not married, I suggest owning a pet. The counselor will decide, if you need medication, and will recommend a doctor.

Hello, welcome to lybrate as per your account provided above, it seems like that you are harbouring an underlying anxiety disorder. What you are experiencing i. E. Racing heart, shivering, worries they are the physiological symptoms of anxiety. There are different types of anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, adjustment disorder, acute stress disorder; also underlying personality characters can also predisposes an individual to develop these anxiety conditions. Hence to reach a conclusive reason for your anxiety, a detailed evaluation is required. Anxiety once diagnosed, can be treated with the help of anti anxiety medications such as benzodiazepines, anxiolytics, snris etc. Also depending on the type of anxiety disorder, psychological interventions can also be chosen. If you want to have a detailed assessment of your anxiety and want to seek treatment for same, you can have private sessions with me

You have become very pessimistic probably due to the depression. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scorching 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

Lalalajpat is my aunty she has a disease called schizophrenia. Can anyone suggest me any suggestions for curing her and are there any chances of getting my aunt to normal conditions? Please help.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness, but can be treated very well with effective new medications. The treatment is like diabetes or hypertension, i. E. Is for long term. The symptoms will gradually disappear and it might take nearly 2-6 months for significant improvement. Also if the illness has been treated irregularly, or in certain sub-types of schizophrenia or resistant symptoms, only improvement can be shown rather than complete recovery. Schizophrenia is not a single disease but a syndrome with variety of presentation, so the treatment is done by psychiatrist after understanding these.
