I am married 32 years old have 2 kids. Due to depression i am not able to have a healthy sexual life. Friends suggest these tablets sildenafil citrate.

Hi lybrate-user, Despite some antidepressants’ sexual side effects, your best option for overcoming depression and its negative effects on sex is to get treatment. Beyond medication, you may want to try non-pharmaceutical methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (a treatment method that addresses negative thoughts while supporting positive behaviors). It may not be an immediate fix, but it’s a worthwhile approach to managing both depression and sex problems. Also, Preliminary research suggests that 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity may be just the libido enhancer you need. In fact, exercise can boost both your emotional health and your sex drive. Exercise gets your blood moving, releases some of the mood-enhancing chemicals that come along with a good workout, and gets your bod into better shape (making you feel better about yourself, too). Anxiety, low self-esteem, and guilt are common causes of erectile dysfunction. Its advised to seek psychotherapy from a psychologist online or in person. All the best.

I am unable to concentrate on studies. I am always getting disturbed by some foolish and unuseful thoughts. What should I do to concentrate on studies?

Dear, 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. Take care.

Meditation in morning for 10 mins. Then you do this small exercise: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall for 10 mins daily making 90 degree angle. This will help you a lot.

I am suffering from anxiety related health problems, I had visited multiple doctors but couldn't get much better. Usually I stay awake for 2-3 days and night. My wife is very worried and trying her best to find some useful healing. I 've added weight dark skin on my cheeks, fat belly.

Dear lybrate user, you must be quiet tired and frustrated if you are not able to sleep for 2 - 3 days/night. Sometimes the mind keeps working without break and hence affects the body. Your lack of sleep may be a result of something going on in your mind. Probably you are not aware of it or may be you are unable to express it with someone you can trust. The allopathy medicines will give you only symptomatic relief but will not treat the root cause. Hence, please talk to a counsellor who will help you to understand what is going on in your mind and how you can manage your emotions. Take care.

I am 24 years old male. Working as an Engineer. By character I am a very nice person, my friends and my relatives also telling so. But when I am getting angry every thing going out of control. Even small mistakes from others also make me too much angry and I reacts very violently, that makes issues in my life. When I am getting angry I can not control my self, at that time I only think about some how I have to defeat the other person. Mostly I used rude language on them. But after all this I feels so sad on what I have done. But by this time the other person will be in such a condition that he can not forgive me. Please help me on this problem. Is this a disease? Do I need a counseling?

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Yes lybrate-user you surely need counseling and changes in habits and lifestyle. It is important to know the root of anger, there is always some reason in subconscious or to determine whether there is any other associated condition with anger. Anger is a normal, healthy emotion, but when chronic, explosive anger spirals out of control, it can have serious consequences for your relationships, your health, and your state of mind. With insight about the real reasons for your anger and these anger management tools, you can learn to keep your temper from hijacking your life. Therapy can be a great way to explore the reasons behind your anger. If you don’t know why you are getting angry, it’s very hard to control. Therapy provides a safe environment to learn more about your reasons and identify triggers for your anger. It’s also a safe place to practice new skills in expressing your anger. Consult a psychologist for same, But yes, get treated as soon as possible because hurting your loved ones not a good idea.

Hello sir/Mem I was suffering from anxiety disorder, doctor gave me pexep tablet for 3 months. I am OK now. Doctor told me that it will not happen Again to me. And he told me for breathing exercises and no late night sleep, that is I am doing since 4 months regularly. My question is that would n't this problem happen again to me? What precautions should I follow so that It should not happen to me again? And what yogasun should I do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

I doubt that any doctor states that it will never happen again. It is impossible to state or believe in this. Yes it will improve and that period may be long. Don't worry. It's the present that you live in. Improvement and preoccupation with other issues is impossible. Regards

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

I am a 20 years old man. I am suffering from short time memory. I forget things very early. What to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

I guess you are having too many things on your mind and you are probably stressed out. Please make a diary for yourself. Plan actvities for each day in advance. Make a list of all jobs to be done, prioritise these jobs. Keep checking this list though out the day. Make a tick mark for completed jobs and try to finish the rest. While going to bed, every night try to memories your plan for next day. With little practice, you would be able to achieve it. At same time, learn some techniques to enhance your memory. All the best.

Take the controls in your hands. Have a reality check. Take the help of friends and relatives (parents and close relatives who understand you). If you are not able to handle it even after that then take the help of a counselor (Psychiatrist) and overcome your problem. Its always better to look at the larger and whole picture surrounding you and move on for a bright and healthy future.

You must consult a psychiatrist immediately. Medications will help you a lot and also counselling will help you deal with your problem efficiently. Do not take any negative decision ever. Since you are depressed negative thoughts affect your thinking capacity. Once it is treated you will be much better.

What is depression and how to deal with it.

We all have times is life when we feel sad and low. Is that a disease and does it require treatment? how to differentiate that sad feeling with depression? this is the question that comes to our mind which leads us to seek treatment from a doctor.

Depression is basically a disorder of mood where there is an reduction of a chemical called serotonin in the brain. Lack of sunlight, stressfull events such as child birth, illness, divorce, work tensions, bereavement, pain, lack of intimate relationships etc can all lead to depression.

To be classified as depression the following symptoms must be present for at least 2 weeks.
Loss of interest or pleasure in anything including what you used to enjoy before.
Sleep disturbances including early wakening, excessive sleeping or inability to sleep.
Ideas of guilt or worthlessness
Decrease or increase in appetite
Inability to concentrate
Slow and sluggish thought process and movements.

As you can notice all these symptoms effect our normal daily functioning and hence requires immediate attention. Suicidal risk in particular is an emergency and needs hospitalization.

The treatment depends on the condition of the patient and there are several options. Nowadays being depressed has become a cool thing and people take antidepressants" happy pills" by themselves. This is not a healthy thing to do. You must consult a doctor and get yourself evaluated before you take any medicines.

Please feel free to ask me a private question if you need further information.

I am 40yrs old female, married, my daughter who was in 12th got failed, am so down. She is rewriting her exam am scared will she do it better. I don't get sleep at night. I don't know what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It seems like your daughter? s failure is affecting you more than your daughter. You may inadvertently pass on your nervousness to her and make it worse. You must give her hope and therefore you must have more faith and trust in her abilities. You must help her identify what went wrong in her last attempt and correct those errors this time around. Her study methods may be in question. If so, explore better methods even now. If she is of a nervous disposition, she is likely to mess it up again. Help her with some deep breathing and yoga exercises to calm her down. Teach her how to handle her feelings, especially that of fear, and she will do a lot better. Never fault a child for trying and being responsible. Make her and you understand that failure is a stepping-stone to success. Every great man has had his ups and downs but they picked themselves up and did better when down. Even if she has to repeat her class, it is good for her, if she has learned her lessons. Get her tutoring for the weak subjects and whatever other support she needs. A multivitamin and multi-mineral along with a calcium tablet daily will help her to deal with stress well. Get your husband involved too, especially if he is of a calmer disposition. My take on education: if her character is good, then that is all that matters. Acknowledge that about her: that is the best result one should look for.
