I have been taking Escitalopram 10 mg for last 2 months. It has affected my will to work (lost interest in work) and libido. What are the alternatives?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hi. Thanks for the query. may I know for what indication you have been prescribed Escitalopram? As you may be already aware, Escitalopram is an antidepressant (SSRI group of medication) & is considered to be one of the safest antidepressants & one with least side effects. It might adversely affect sexual functions in some patients & may NOT effectively help in symptoms in domains of lethargy/fatigue (you are not able to pull up yourself for work). Hence, safer alternative at this point can be either Bupropion or Agomelatine; both of which Do NOT adversely affect sexual function & especially Bupropion has added advantage of alleviating fatigue & related symptoms. Hope this helps, Regards

I do not know but I try to concentrate on studies and topics but my concentration is very less and also I feel light head as if every time my brain is dull. Also I have memory issues.

Dear lybrate-user Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during menopause or pregnancy, can also affect how we think and concentrate. Concentration problems, when present to an excessive degree, are also characteristic of certain physical and psychological conditions. The hallmark condition associated with difficulty concentrating is attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a condition that has been increasingly diagnosed in both children an adults in recent years. Rare conditions that affect the brain and some emotional problems as well as endocrinologic disturbances can also influence an individual's cognitive functions and thus impair concentration. It will be better if you may consult

Quitting Smoking May Improve Erections

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Quitting Smoking May Improve Erections

Most people are aware that smoking is bad for their health. Smoking is linked to cancer, heart disease, respiratory disease, and a host of other illnesses.

What men might not know, however, is that smoking can also lead to erectile dysfunction (ed). Studies have shown that men who smoke are more likely to develop ed. And the more a man smokes - both quantity and duration of time - the worse his ed tends to be.

The good news is that quitting smoking can help restore erections. Let's look at this relationship more closely.

When a man is sexually stimulated, his brain sends signals to the penis to trigger an erection. Smooth muscle tissue relaxes and arteries widen, allowing the penis to fill with blood. When enough blood flows in, veins constrict to keep it there until the man ejaculates (or the stimulation stops). Then the veins open and blood flows back into the body.

As you can see, blood flow is critical for a good erection. Blood is what gives the penis the firmness needed for sex. When blood flow is compromised, so is the erection.

Smoking tobacco releases chemicals that interfere with this process. This can happen in a few ways.

  • Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). Chemicals can damage the lining of blood vessels, making it difficult for blood to flow into the penis.
  • damage to smooth muscle tissue. When this tissue can't relax properly, blood flow becomes impaired.
  • decreased nitic oxide.Smoking interferes with the body's production of nitric oxide, a compound needed for erections.
  • Other health conditions, like diabetes and heart disease, can contribute to ed, too. If you're having erection problems, it's important to have a full checkup with your doctor. But quitting smoking definitely, can't hurt.

Quitting smoking should make you feel better overall. You'll feel good about yourself knowing that you've taken an important step toward better health - and possibly better sex!

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Stress is part of life and part of body's defence mechanism. Stress can be avoided, managed. Relaxation therapy and stress management therapy should help you. In the meantime go for a walk, enjoy life. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. These issues are mainly due to negative attitude rather than any specific psychological disorder. Stress also could be another factor. Once you are able to perceive the surroundings and happenings and understand self, your positive attitude begins. Attitude building therapy should suit you. If it is due to stress, stress management is the answer. Take care.

My mother age 51 yrs old and she is suffering from schizophrenia since 12 yrs. She has stone in her gallbladder. so is it right to operate or will operation be worse for her condition?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course it is okay to operate her for the kidney stone. The doctors will know what medication to use that will not have any adverse reactions when operating her. So if there are no other medical conditions to make it difficult, I see no problems for the surgery. Anyway the surgeon will need to be informed about her condition and the medication she is on, and you can get further information from him or her to allay all your fears.

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

Discussions and consideration of ailments begin and end with those which pertain to the physical health of an individual. Matters of the body are inevitably prioritized over the matters of the mind. However it goes without saying that your overall well-being is as much dependent on your mental health as it is on physical health. However, there are few simple measures which can be undertaken to beat the depression blues.

  1. Exercise: What works for the body may also work for the mind and exercise is a leading example of that. It is recommended that every day you set aside at least some time for exercising. It will not only benefit your physical constitution, but will also keep your thoughts away from the issues which are tormenting you in the first place.
  2. Converse: It is a given that depression alienates people, drowns them in solitude. However, seclusion is merely a temporary refuge, one that can hardly benefit you in the long run. Hard as it may be, try talking to people and engage in conversations with people. In the course of the conversation, try putting into words what exactly you are suffering from. Reaching out for an extended arm goes a long way in recuperating from this condition.
  3. Meditation: When you suffer from depression, you inevitably are, in the process, trying to grapple with plenty of tumultuous issues. It is imperative therefore that you find a way to calm your mind and there is no other way to do it than indulge in meditation.
  4. Find a confidante: When suffering from depression, it is crucial that you find yourself a confidante. It is important to talk to others but it is perhaps more important to find the right person. Irrespective of your relationship with him or her, by all means find a confidante in whom you can unflinchingly confide.
  5. Break monotony: Monotony not only triggers depression but in most cases, breeds it. It is important therefore than you break the monotony. If not a drastic change, go for small changes initially and try to change your daily routine as much as possible.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

That is true about depression: it does lower metabolism and the person is likely to add weight at that time. It is very important for this reason and others for people who are depressed to be on an active exercise program. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of depression may include the following: • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions • Fatigue and decreased energy • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness • Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping • Irritability, restlessness • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex • Overeating or appetite loss • Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings • Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts

Dear lybrate-user, Serta is not a sleep inducing antidepressant. Your sleep will improve if your depression is lifted. Even after 4 years, if you have a sleeping problem, please consult your psychiatrist again. Please try taking serta in the morning.

Dear lybrate-user, You may be suffering from a depressive disorder or some hormonal disorder. Both are fully treatable. You will enjoy life with treatment. Please consult a psychiatrist. She/he may ask for blood tests. After the diagnosis, may prescribe you with antidepressant tablets. Remember that antidepressant tablets take 2-3 weeks time to start giving benefit. The side effects may come earlier. If you tolerate for 2 weeks the side effects, you will feel good. Antidepressant tablets may be continued for few months after you improve. If there is hormonal imbalance, you may prescribed with replacement. It is along with antidepressant tablets.

Engage yourself fully in studies, hobbies, social work, creative activities and games to have a balanced life. You have to restore the mental balance, get rid of the stress and produce some endorphins by vigorous physical exercise like jogging and gym. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this, which acts internally without adverse effects. The medicines will improve health and prevent the tendency. Take nux vomica 200 once daily in the evening for 7 days and give feedback.
