Hello lybrate user. Not feeling fresh after getting up from sleep, feeling less energetic and tiredness throughout the day may normally be present if they are occasional once a while in a person's life. But if this is the story which is being repeated almost everyday for atleast 2 weeks or more than it needs a close evaluation. At your age having persistent pervasive low mood and lack of interest, lack of concentration, forgetting things, lack of concentration, constant tiredness with having headache or head heaviness may be signs of depression. Other thing which we neet to rule out here is any organic cause for the symptoms. So I suggest you to get your thyroid function test, hemogram and mri brain done. You need to get evaluated closely by a psychiatrist and if there are other signs of depression present you may be started on anti-depressants with expecting good amount of improvement in a month of start of medications. Hoping the best for you. Take care.

How to increase brain power? I mean how can I increase my brain power. Is there any drug available?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

I have tried welbutirin, with horrendous anxiety and insomnia side effects. Had the same reaction to zoloft and paxil plus sexual side effects. Then tried remeron which was good.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

Hello, ajeet, I can understand your worry, this is a problematic condition and most of the men do come across this problem. Sexual problems do have a treatment. Chronic illness do contribute to loss of libido, reduced interest in sexual activities, premature ejaculation as well. Though their are no structural anomalies detected by psychological factors can also contribute to these conditions. Most common psychological factors includes: depressive states, anxiety states, acute stress, relational issues, burnout etc. Few medications also can contribute to such states such antiviral, interferons, betablockers etc. Hence to get a complete picture about your problems, a detailed evaluation is necessary. Also this will help in formulating a management plan comprising of both pharmacological approach as well as psychological interventions, so that you can get recover in a better way and can have a better functional life ahead.

Hello Doctor, I have depression. My main problem is memory loss and lack of concentration. It has affected my job greatly. My doctor gave me a series of medicines. My mood is OK now and feeling better but memory is not improving even after many tries of Medicine. I started taking medicine 3 months back. Now I have lost belief that my memory loss can be cured. Do you know anything about my condition? Can it be cured? Thanks in advance.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Many anti depressants help in recovery of mood quickly, as you said memory might not be improved, unless treated specifically for that. Get another psychiatrist opinion, your prescription might meed revision to improve memory, it is very easy though.

Hi, im asif, 24 years old, I'm addicted to internet. I'm using iy quite often. Due to to this I'm unable to concentrate on studious. How to overcome from this?

Dear. I can understand. The present addiction to internet has been created by yourself and therefore you have to force yourself out of the habit. Promise yourself that you will not use the phone for any other purpose than calling. Divert your attention towards other engaging activities like physical exercises, games, entertainment, being with friends, hobbies. Etc. Take care.

Black coloured vomit could be simply altered food particles but more importantly it could be altered blood too. I suggest Upper GI endoscopy and further management as advised by Gastroentrologist.

Dear friend getting married and moving to a big city like mumbai in it self is a huge change a d chllenge. What yiu are feeling is ina way very common feeling among young women after 18 to 24 months of marriage. The money moon period in marriage ends around this time. Now you both settle in your after marriage life and the reality sinks in. The happily everafter feeling also starts fading a little bit. Now yoh start seeing your spouses limitations and weaknesses also. Overall this is a stressful time. On a brighter side. Now you both are comfortable leaving woth each other and open to expose yourself as it is to another one. This is from where the true journey of happily ever after begins. Understanding how you both are different. Not only as an individual bit there are else some differences in your gender. Helping and supporting each other while you express how you feel and what are your needs and how could the other support you in filling the same woukd go a long way. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think what makes you happy. What you enjoy doing that bring joy and satisfaction in your day. One baby step each day would help you chart a new path and better future togather as a psychologist and life coach I have been trained to help and guide individuals through this journey I do offer weekly sessions for 3 months to 6 months where we work togather you bring about concrete changes on your life.

Are you sure that she has this anxiety only at night? If so she is afraid of the darkness, or of being alone, or of death. Any which way you look at it anxiety is fear based. If she meets with a counselor she could easily identify the reason for the anxiety. She may do some of the following to get better sleep. For the medication she will need to meet a psychiatrist in person for a prescription. She should not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether she sleeps or not. She must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if she does not get sleep. If she does not get sleep, she could just lie down and if she has a bed lamp (or you could get her one) let her lie down and read something light but not exciting. Her eyes will tire and she will fall asleep. If she likes she may also put on the light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether she is a visual or auditory person, she may watch TV in a lying down position until she feels sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If she is one of them, please do so). Place the head side of her bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on her body or in the room, or on her sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in her bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, let her lie down on her left ear as much as possible. Do not let her sleep directly under an overhead fan. She must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever she eats in the other meals, let her have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep she may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before she sleeps at night. If she knows Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then let her practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before she sleeps.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment. The same applies to alcohol or chewing tobacco.

Getting tensed is just another manifestation of not being able to handle psychological stress and anxiety arising due to various reasons at your age. Anger is an outward expression of inner anxiety which you tend to express on people you know, care about you. I am very much sure that you do tend to feel regret after doing so. If you have been consistently facing problems of tension and inability to control emotional anger outbursts then it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity for opinion and management. Consult me online for any further queries or assistance in treatment.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine 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 smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
