Dear Lybrate user lybrate-user its nothing unusual it happens with every one, take healthy food increase fruits intake, egg,dairy products, you can follow my few suggestions it will help you 1.take 6-7 hours sleep everyday. 2.do some exercise like sit in the posture of yogi both hands on stomach then inhale and exhale air forcibly do it for 10 times it will not take more than 10 minutes. It will increase your concentration power. 3.Increase the intake of fruits ,green vegetables, and dairy products in partwise as this will not make you sleepy. 4.try to make some concept if you will learn line by line then in the less time then there is a chance that you can forget the important lines. 5.make short notes from topics. 6.focus on main theme as if you will know the theme then you can elaborate this in exam If you need my help you can contact me. Good luck.

I have depression problem from last five years and taking medicines from different different doctors but not more changes.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Antidepressants take 2-3 weeks to start acting. The dose also need to be increased. If you don't tolerate the dose, another antidepressant will be added. Along with these psychosocial therapies need to be done. If you go on changing doctors, every doctor starts with one type of antidepressant. She/he does not get a chance to help you further. Stay with one doctor and ask her/him to refer you another doctor if necessary

I am 44 years old lady I feel depressed always I don't wish to mingle with any one if I try so I easily get bored with them in a day or two. Family history is granny committed suicide and mother tried twice is it related to me in anyway if yes please suggest good action.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, sometimes suicide runs in families. If there is depression, then there could be suicide drives not too far behind. You must take double precautions knowing the history of the family.The genetic factor is pretty strong in you. But not everything is lost, if you cooperate, with both counseling and medication. If you went for counseling too a lot can be done and resolved. So apart from the medication you need the help of a counselor who will equip you with coping skills and techniques to handle the daily pressures in life, including meeting and socializing with people. You can also speak about the recent developments and find a way of sorting those out too, everyday. Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, 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, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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.

How to cope up depression and de motivation. Actual answer is expected. Rather than diplomatic.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

I am sorry for your loss. Feeling sad during this time is normal. There is nothing you can do other than giving yourself some time. After sometime you should be able to feel better and move ahead. But if the symptoms continue over few months then you should get yourself evaluated.

7 Ways to Help You Bust Stress and Anxiety

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
7 Ways to Help You Bust Stress and Anxiety

You may face stress and anxiety in life because of innumerable reasons, starting from job-related stress to personal stress. Stress is capable of causing great distress, which may hamper your daily activities, your thinking and your entire life in general. It is essential for you to identify the cause of stress and anxiety and then adopt ways to cope with it.

Here are some important tips for busting stress and anxiety:

  1. Keep active: Exercise does not eliminate stress, but it helps in reducing its intensity. Your thoughts will be cleared and you will be able to deal with your problems better.
  2. Take control: Remember that every problem has a solution. If you are passive about it and think about the negative side, your stress is bound to shoot up. You cannot afford to lose control over your thoughts and actions. Instead, try to take control over the situation and be optimistic.
  3. Connect with people: Instead of isolating yourself during situations of great stress and anxiety, connecting with your friends, family and colleagues will ease your troubles. You may come across a new perspective or a new approach. If you do not connect with the people who matter, you will not have their support when you really need it. By talking about your problem, you may find solutions and get suggestions as well.
  4. Spend time with yourself: We all like to do certain things, but cannot make it possible because of work pressure and other demands in life. It is important for you to take some time off for yourself and do the things you enjoy. This will lighten you up, make you happy and is a good vent for stress and anxiety.
  5. Set challenges for yourself: In order to build confidence, you must set some goals and challenges for yourself to accomplish. This is ideal for coping with stress and anxiety.
  6. Abstain from unhealthy habits: Do not rely on alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes as a way of coping with stress. Although this is a common thing all around the world, these do not actually solve your troubles. They keep on creating more problems and hence try to keep away from them. You may get temporary relief, but in the long run, you have to solve the underlying cause of your stress.
  7. Help other people: It is evident that people who help others in need through volunteering, community work or any other way get resilient. If you help people who are in situations far worse than you, your problems will be put in the right perspective. Try to help people out in every little way.

You need to maintain a positive mindset instead of breaking down or losing it. Acceptance is a very important part of busting stress and anxiety.

I am 58 suffer from insomnia prescribe good sleeping pills was depressed for 8 years, was in a rehab for 3 years. What should i do?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, your history of being depressed and in rehab home for few years suggest that your problems are more than insomnia. Insomnia itself may be due to depression or other conditions. It is better to treat you as a whole person rather than prescribing a sleeping pill.

Hello sir I am 28 year old. At present I make my self alcoholic. I want every day alcohol approximately 250 ml. But I know its effect my whole body .and I want to leave it. So please help me. How I will be make a non alcoholic.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

Dear Lybrate user, At your friends age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I'm not able to remember what I'm reading for a long time. Tell me something so that I remember it for a long time.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I am a 36 year old male and I think I have depression, Can you tell me the Symptoms.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, Depression varies from person to person, but there are some common signs and symptoms. It’s important to remember that these symptoms can be part of life’s normal lows. But the more symptoms you have, the stronger they are, and the longer they’ve lasted—the more likely it is that you’re dealing with depression. Signs and symptoms of depression include: Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation. Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping. Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves. Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes. Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

Dear Lybrate User, I understand. You seem to have mild anxiety due to the various issues you are facing. Remember to take a few deep breaths and normalize your breathing in these anxious situations. Concerning other people and their opinions, it is important to remember that the thoughts and actions of others are not in your control, however the way you react to them is. Build your self-confidence by choosing a task and breaking it down into smaller goals. This should eventually help achieve the big task easily. Here are a few effective communication tools you can use in conversations: - Make a plan of what you want to say beforehand. This way you have clarity. - Paraphrase what the speaker has said to ensure both of you are on the same page. Please consult privately for further help. Good Luck.

It is true that the you have symptoms of anxiety. It would have started around age of 23 which is when your personality is completely formed. I want to emphasise that it could be a part of your personality rather than psychiatric illness because it has not cause social, occupational or interpersonal dysfunction, at least from your question I can conclude the same I.e. Your are going to your job albeit with some problems continuing your responsibilities that is expected from you in all circles of life. So for this YOGA has been found to be useful or at least deep breathing exercise for 20 -30 mins a day.

It is not sign of depression. Have to consult a psychiatrist who can diagnose a disease of your wife. You can not stop the treatment by your own which will given by psychiatrist. In psychiatric illness you have to touch on regular basis to psychiatrist for further treatment. Not to worry.
