I am suffering from some depression problem for past 3 months? Can you help me how to get out of it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am suffering from some depression problem for past 3 months? Can you help me how to get out of it?
I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success. Since the depression is just recent, your prognosis will be really good if you cooperate.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Poor nutrition can lead to deficiency and consequently lack of energy, stamina and concentration. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: Eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals.Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

I am a 42 years old male. Since 7 years I have been consuming tobacco. I just take it once in the night before I go to bed. After consuming I spit it out after 15-20 mins. I do make sure that I do not swallow anything too. I brush well after I spit it out. But its become kind of an addiction and I can not refrain from not having even for a single night. I have a lot of work stress too so I feel taking this once a day before I go to bed will help in easing out stress. Since 4 years I have had thyroid, and have started with allopathy medicine since 6 months. Previously was taking homeopathy. Is thyroid related to tobacco consumption. How do I get rid of this habit? How harmful can it be? Pls help.

Tobacco chewing is the topmost cause of mouth cancer. It also creates acidic pH in the body. You should know that nicotine craving increases the stress which is relieved by taking it. So it creates stress and then apparently reduces it. Be aware of the fact and you will automatically leave it one day.

Hi Sonali, at your age there should not be any memory problems per se. I think you need more focussed attention to give in your study, revise the matter in timely manner, recollect the fact as much as u can. I hope you can remember more. If not then please check your Thyroid status and routine blood. You can consult a neuropsychiatrist if you want.

What is the best way to deal with stress? What kind of exercise - if any - should I do, and how often do I do it? What effects does it have on me?

STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive If you need any prescription please consult me as we cannot prescribe in questions session. Regards

Hi, its just an exam you do not have to be so stressed out. You need to organize yourself and make a schedule. You can sleep early and get up early for studying. Early morning study is always better. Make a schedule stick to it, make pointers for the matter you are studying revise everything at night before sleeping. Close books 1 hour prior to sleeping. Have warm milk and may be warm water bath at night before sleeping. You can also practice deep breathing- inhale from nose exhale from mouth till you feel calm. All the best.

What to do to sharpen our memory.?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , brain power is almost always same for every person. The difference is how you use it. The more you use your brain, the more powerful it becomes. It is like a diamond. Shines more, the more you polish it. Memory is not just memory. Memory includes perception, storage and recollection. Exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku, nutritive food etc are also good for brain. You can practice" effective learning techniques" for learning and recollection. Take care.

escitalopram is an antidepressant. Amisulpiride on the other hand is an antipsychotic drug. So your comparison is not fair.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Hlooo. Dr. I always suffer from lots of tension, what should I do doctor. Any suggestion please.
Dear Tashi, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. This is a very commonly asked question and is quite a common problem. What we need to understand here is whether this is a part of your personality, a result of a disorder, merely the byproduct of a life situation or some combination of these. It is important to understand this because it will entail somewhat differing lines of solutions. In order to help you better, we will need to know certain additional details. How long has this been present? If it has always been there since your childhood days, it is likely a part of your personality and psychotherapy should be useful. Medicines are less likely to be useful. If, on the other hand, it is of recent onset and departure from how you are typically, it can possibly indicate a disorder, need for medicines and/ or therapy. In any case, it may be a good idea to meet an expert in person. This should clarify the situation and assist in your speedy recovery. Take care!
