Hello doctors! I am16 years old boy and I am going to US .approx 3 months back a well known psychiatrist, after hearing my problems prescribed me olanzapine ip 2.5 mg and clomipramine hydrochloride tablets for 6 months. But after a month I stopped taking it due to its side effects .now it has been approximately 8 weeks that I am not consuming it. After knowing the consequences of suddenly stopping psychiatrists drugs and not getting well at some extent I want to restart the medicines. Due to some reasons I cannot contact the psychiatrist. So I need advise from you. And if there are some consequences regarding retaking of such drugs then please let me know. Hoping to get reply from your side. I would be very thankful to you. Thank you.

These drugs are important for your treatment and recovery. Instead of stopping on your own you should have consulted the doctor and described the side effects. You should have also combined medication with some counseling for the best results. Now you have lost that opportunity and because of your age, it is important to restart only with a medical prescription and evaluation. Do not self-medicate and also you have to be carefully monitored during use for exactly the reason you quit: the side effects. Please take your complete medical history and prescriptions​ and meet another doctor near your place and go back to medical and therapeutic support immediately.

How do I quit smoking? I had done it before 3 months then again I couldn't control help?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again and again until you succeed. You will win this battle if you persevere. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear user. The moment you quit smoking, your body will start the repair process. Nicotine will be cleared within a week. The total repair could take from 6 months to one year based on your smoking frequency. In any case, within one year your body will be healthy provided you don; t start smoking again. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Why my friend fears from god, she think the god punish him. Please tell the solution.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, MPHIL
Psychologist, Mumbai
Devotion or bhakti as we call it, is based on love, not fear. Where there is love there is god. Tell your friend not to fear god but to love him. God will never punish only guide. Like the bhagavad gita tells us" lord krishna who is dwelling in everybody's heart, acts as a best wishing friend and purifies the devotee who constantly engages in hearing him" tell your friend that when she says she is scared of god, essentially she is scared of her own self, as god is within every one of us. She need not be afraid of her most trusted friend and guide. Ofcourse if your friend has any questions or wants to talk about this at length she can always talk to someone who is open to this discussion or consult a counsellor and seek help.

My concentration levels fall off after 30-40 minutes study. Please help me what can i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some 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.

I'm a 22 year old female. For the last five years, I've not been able to be successful in anything. I think I'm just lazy. But i've had suicidal tendencies and have absolutely no interest in anything anymore. I also had an incident of sexual abuse in my childhood. What do I do? Am I depressed or just plain lazy?

Five years ago you would have been 16 years when the last stage of adolescence beckoned and you would have needed to resolve any childhood issues (like this sexual abuse you talk of among others), once and for all. It appears that you have lived with that and therefore there could be important things to be taken care of soon. This could all lead to depression (anger-related) and for some reason, you have turned the anger inwards and that is propositioning the suicidal tendencies. You must, therefore, meet with a counselor soon and if that person recommends a doctor you must comply with the medication too. It is also advisable to take your parents to meet with the counselor to help identify the childhood issues and also to know about the sex abuse. You have been a victim and need not blame yourself in all this. But it is important to face all the repercussions of sharing your experiences to a professional and in front of your parents. You will find it a great relief and will immediately feel better for it.

The smoking is definitely not good for him. You may need to take him to a sexologist and also pursue the foreplay angle further. His premature ejaculation could be due to various reasons and unless that is explored with a sexologist we would be merely speculating. There is however one thing that can be done, if your husband is cooperative. But you can help him build confidence in its possibility i.e. that if he attempts sex a second time after half an hour or so his ejaculation will be a little delayed and if that can be done even a third time, it will be further delayed. But you need to coax him that that is possible and very gently entice him both physically and emotionally to go for it. Another alternative is for you to stimulate yourself before the act and prime yourself until you are very close to an orgasmic experience and then have the intercourse.

Local sprays penetrate the skin locally in substantial amounts and thus reach the desired target tissue. Topical application has also been shown to result in higher concentrations in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle than oral preparations ...that's why sprays acts faster.

These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.
