General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I was smoking from past 3 years and now I stopped and switched to vape. I would like to know if vape is still dangerous for health. Pls help me.

Dear user. I can understand. Smoking e cigarettes are also as dangerous as normal cigarettes. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I feel nervous for first few seconds when I perform something infront of people. Am I sociophobic.
Absolutely normal. The fear of public speaking is the number one fear for everyone including seasoned speakers. The first 90 seconds are when we experience the greatest stress where even your heart beat increases to double i. E. 144 beats. To overcome this effect prepare a fabulous starting sentence and you would have utilized that 90 second window very productively. Secondly, we tend to become afraid of people abut their judgement of you and your performance. The best way to counter that it to speak on only what you know. If you attempt to venture into areas of dubious information, you will be in deep waters.

Hi, you need to consult a psychologist and take cognitive behavioral therapy for your negative attitude and thoughts. For anxiety, practice deep breathing and yoga. For increasing confidence and developing skills you need to take therapy. So consult a psychologist online or in person.

It is called transvestism. It may be little relieving for you to wear a ladies garment just to get peace of mind for some time, but it has serious social and personal percussion. It is better to get treated. I advise you to consult a nearby psychiatrist who may treat you well with a SSRI group of drug for some time.

Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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, if you are not already married. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

Dear lybrate-user. As you have been diagnosed with panic disorder, all these symptoms including your high blood pressure is normal. These symptoms are normal and natural and never will have any negative health effect to your body. Don't worry. Regarding blood pressure, always it is the anxiety causes your blood pressure. You should leave the symptoms at it. Your psychiatrist is very much correct. Believe him and stop worrying about the symptoms. You should also understand another fact. Panic disorder always is due to an underlying anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Yes, it is not associated with any adverse effects as such. In fact it will give you additional benefits such as keeping blood pressure under control, keeping heart healthy and controlling anger also. But I think you are overestimating your need, you wont have to take it for a lifetime!

Hi, quitting alcohol will be one of the best decisions of your life. Alcohol not only affects your physical health, it also affects mental well-being, interpersonal relationships and performance at work. When you started drinking it was probably just a drink with friends, but somewhere it became an addiction. Addiction is often rooted in psychological issues that you may or may not be aware of. Before you quit drinking you will first need to identify these issues or else even when you quit drinking, there is a high chance of you getting addicted to something else. Consult a psychologist and work on these issues. The point of life where you stand today did not happen overnight, nor will changing it. Give it time and effort and resolve the underlying problems first. Start doing things that you have given up on in due course of time - start socializing with friends/family, exercising, eating healthy, doing little things in life that bring you joy and above all find a purpose in life that you are passionate about. You might need to take some medicines when you quit alcohol to deal with withdrawal symptoms. You can also try joining alcoholics anonymous in your city. It is a support group where they share their own stories and discuss how they overcame their addiction. All the best!

Hello Doctor, I am writing this question on behalf of my dad who is 70 years old. Recently he had open heart surgery while he was @ 67 yrs old and since after that he pretend/ act very smart and active. Not sure whether it is related to post heart surgery effects. Marriage life of my dad is not that good and I have personally seen my dad and mom fighting always. I guess it had a negative impact in their sexual life as well. Recently we had two instance (Sexual Harassment) happened within our home to my relatives when they came to our home. Since it happened to our own family member, we didn't react and didn't ask him regarding the same. We would like to get higher opinion from you and also if possible could you please provide any low dose tablet, so that we can cure this in starting stage itself. We worry that if he does the same outside home to any unknow ladies in public it would be an issue. Kindly provide your valuable suggestion.

Hello Doctor,

Hi, the signs/ symptoms as seen in your dad are indicative of repressed anger and emotions owing possibly to a dissatisfied married life which probably is getting vented out in a manner as described by you. First and foremost, in order that he is not obsessively compelled to think negative and imagine stuff, it is important for you to assure him time and again that everything is perfectly ok and distract him to either watching, visualizing or doing something meaningful, relaxing and one that gives him a sense of inner strength and positive energy/ vibes. Listening to a soothing and inspiring music also helps to stay calm and relaxed. He needs to plan his day, listing out the things to be achieved and get going about them one by one. He requires to be on a healthy and balanced diet with focus on leafy greens and fresh fruits. He needs to take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. It is important that he keeps his lifestyle streamlined and does walking/ light exercise, yoga et al in fresh air. It is good to get exposed to the early morning sunlight for 5 to 10 minutes daily. He must keep his stress levels low and stay relaxed and focused. He can enjoy his favorite yet lightweight films/ serials/ cartoons et al as he would like to watch and get some interesting yet light stories to read while he retires to bed. He can take a glass of warm milk with a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and a tsp of honey mixed to the same, at bed time. Homeopathic remedy staphysagria 12c/ 30c potency suits this particular condition. At the same time, I would also advise you to see a psychologist in person and seek independent opinion. All the very best and take care.

Losing a person who is close to you is very painful. I can imagine how sad you must be. A friend is someone who gives you unconditional support and love. Please understand that you have lost something valuable in your life and if you feel like crying, please cry or share your feelings with someone close to you. Remember, whenever you lose a person, some part of you is also gone with that person, because of your attachment with that person. Give yourself time to understand and mourn the loss. Unfortunately, clock cannot be turned back. Hence you need to understand that you need to continue with your life, without your friend now. It will be difficult initially. Whenever you feel sad, accept your emotions and don't try to push them away. It is important to feel that pain and then understand that, this is part of life. Nothing is for ever. Try to remember all the good times you shared together. Also remember that your friend would have liked you, to have happy and peaceful life. You have lost your friend but your life is there in front of you. You need to move on. Moving on with your life, does not mean you are forgetting your friend. Give yourself enough time to soak in the pain and loss and then start reinvesting in life. Take care.

Depression - Medications Play a Key Role in Treatment

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Depression - Medications Play a Key Role in Treatment

What are antidepressants and mood elevators?

Often depression or mood changes are caused by the imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. Anti-depressants or mood elevators are medications that are prescribed to patients with depression to alleviate their symptoms. Anti-depressants are not solely used for the treatment of depression, it is also prescribed in other psychiatric conditions which includes anxiety disorders, social anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), dysthymia (mild chronic depression) etc.

With time, the use of anti-depressants has been on the rise. Although, anti-depressants do not cure your depression, it relieves the symptoms of the same. Anti-depressants come in various types. The first one you try may not benefit you; however you must consult your doctor and find the right choice of medication for your condition.

Anti-depressant adherence
Non-adherence to anti-depressants can have major consequences on your health. It also majorly contributes to the under treatment of anxiety and depression in maximum cases in the population. The reasons why people do not comply with their therapy or treatment are various; forgetting to take the medicine being the primary one. Other factors that contribute to non-adherence of anti-depressants include-

  1. Fear of addiction
  2. High cost of medications
  3. Fear of drug-induced sexual dysfunction
  4. Delayed onset of action of the medication
  5. Poor instructions and protocols given by the doctor
  6. Fear of side effects

Adherence to the medication with proper guidance from the doctor has seen to decrease the symptoms of depression in the patients, leading them get back to their normal life. Under-treatment of depression can become fatal. If the depression escalates, suicidal tendencies can follow. Apart from these, suddenly stopping the medication has been associated with withdrawal symptoms which can get fatal in severe cases. In recent times, depression has become a common problem with the rise of fatalities caused by depression. As important as it may be to consult a doctor to get your symptoms diagnosed and get the right treatment, it is of equal importance that one adheres to the therapy and abides by the guidelines.
