Dear , amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. I am sure the medicine was prescribed by a psychiatrist because your mother needed such a treatment. The medicine is not harmful for her. Work with your psychiatrist for proper care and cure. No self judgement. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. This feeling is actually called infatuation. You should understand the situation. You can engage in sex with the guy, but I will not advice it. You don't have to think about marriage now. Within few days, these obsessive thoughts will pave way for more serious career related thoughts. You are having' crunch' now. This is normal. Take care.

You do this: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily. Secondly, meditation also helps to reduce stress and anger. And try to take 10-12 deep breaths while you feel anger in yourself and calm yourself.

Dear friend, this medicine will take about 2 weeks to help you with your symptoms. You will have to take medicine for a longer time. I would suggest to also work with a psychologist to address the issues behind your feelings. This will help you start discovering the triggers and also learn tools to tackle the same. Building resilience and learning to manage the stressors associated with the problem is the best way to deal the issue in a long term. These medicines are good but for a long term use have addictive effects, so dose will increase. These medicines also come with their own side effects. In a nut shell, start the medicine, this will help you with the symptoms in 2 weeks. Along with that start counselling to work on route problem. Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns for questions. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Self-help for anxiety, anxiety attacks, and anxiety disorders Not everyone who worries a lot has an anxiety disorder. You may be anxious because of an overly demanding schedule, lack of exercise or sleep, pressure at home or work, or even from too much coffee. The bottom line is that if your lifestyle is unhealthy and stressful, you’re more likely to feel anxious—whether or not you actually have an anxiety disorder. So if you feel like you worry too much, take some time to evaluate how well you’re caring for yourself. Do you make time each day for relaxation and fun? Are you getting the emotional support you need? Are you taking care of your body? Are you overloaded with responsibilities? Do you ask for help when you need it? If your stress levels are through the roof, think about how you can bring your life back into balance. There may be responsibilities you can give up, turn down, or delegate to others. If you’re feeling isolated or unsupported, find someone you trust to confide in. Just talking about your worries can make them seem less frightening. Take care of yourself Connect with others. Loneliness and isolation set the stage for anxiety. Decrease your vulnerability by reaching out to others. Make it a point to see friends, join a self-help or support group, or share your worries and concerns with a trusted loved one. Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and deep breathing can reduce anxiety symptoms and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Exercise regularly. Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise on most days. Get enough sleep. A lack of sleep can exacerbate anxious thoughts and feelings, so try to get seven to nine hours of quality sleep a night. If you struggle with sleep, adopting smart sleep habits can make a big difference. Be smart about caffeine and alcohol. If you struggle with anxiety, you may want to consider reducing your caffeine intake or cutting it out completely. Same with alcohol, which can make anxiety worse. Train your brain to stay calm. Worrying is a mental habit you can learn how to break. Strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging anxious thoughts, and learning to accept uncertainty can significantly reduce anxiety and fear.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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. Take care.

I think that your hostel friends are giving you good advice. If you are not able to concentrate and you keep thinking of the past and the family situation, then it is better for you to work somewhere. At work you will be compelled to concentrate on the job. Sometimes it is better to take a break from your studies due to the distractions you experience. You can still do your inter, by studying in the evening. You may also go for tutorials, which will aid you in studying. This will entail some costs for which you need to work. Do not waste your brother?s hard-earned money, if you are not doing justice to it. There are a lot of youngsters who work and study. I think you need help in your studies, if not from tutorials, ask some of your friends to help. You may have a mind block that is hampering concentration.

Depression is a state of mind, your doctor needs to understand your problems and factors responsible for depression. Depression is like boiling milk in a vessel. When milk starts boiling you either need to stop the flame or remove the vessel rather than taking milk out of the vessel to prevent spiling. similarly your doctor needs to talk to you and understand what is bothering you and that will also help in chalking out the right treatment. Above all stop caring about things which are bothering you, when you can not control go with the flow keep on doing your work, nothing is permanent, this situation will also pass the only thing remain will be the result of your efforts. so just motivate yourself and see a qualified doctor for mental physical and spiritual health. Homoeopathy is good at it. Wish you a speedy recovery..

How to Tell If You Need Help Quitting Drinking

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist

The first step to getting help for a drinking problem is actually recognising that you have one. There are some signs that you might have a problem with alcohol, but it's also worthwhile asking yourself a few questions about your reasons for drinking. Facing the facts can be pretty tough, but it's courageous to step up and decide you need help to control your alcohol intake.

This can help if:


You're regularly binge drinking
You're having blackouts
You drink when you're alone
Other people are worried about your drinking habits
You have an increased tolerance to alcohol and drugs


Signs of alcohol dependence

It's not always easy to tell when you have a drinking problem, particularly as binge drinking is a pretty common activity in Australia. You might not always notice when a couple of drinks has turned into too many.

The fact that you're thinking about whether you have a problem is a good start and there are some signs of alcohol dependence that you can look out for:


Worrying about when you'll be able to have your next drink
Suffering from withdrawal symptoms like sweating, nausea or insomnia as a result of not drinking alcohol
Needing to drink more and more alcohol to get drunk
Drinking alcohol, or desiring to drink alcohol, when you wake up in the morning
Consuming alcohol regularly on your own, or trying to hide your alcohol consumption from those around you
Relationships with friends or family are being affected by your drinking. Ask yourself some questions


A couple of questions that people who work in the field of alcohol addiction often ask people include...


Do you drink because you have problems or to relax?
Do you drink when you get mad at other people, including your friends or parents?
Do you prefer to drink alone, rather than with other people?
Is your work or education suffering as a result of your drinking?
Have you ever tried to stop drinking or to drink less and found that you can't?
Do you drink in the morning, before school or work?
Do you gulp your drinks?
Do you ever have loss of memory due to your drinking?
Do you lie about how much or how often you drink?
Do you ever get into trouble when you're drinking?
Do you get drunk when you drink, even when you don't mean to?
Do other people comment on your drinking and think it's a problem?


If you answer yes to any one of these questions, it's possible that you have a problem with alcohol.

Facing the facts

Facing up to the fact that you might have a problem takes courage. Deciding to take control and get some help is a really brave move, and if you do feel you have a problem, getting help can be the best thing ever.
