Hi lybrate-user! You need to change your life style completely at least to some extent to overcome this problem. You need to control your mind only then you can concentrate. You can actually undergo certain therapies to overcome this problem completely unless otherwise you volunteer to undergo treatment and counselling. If you need to consult with me online definitely you can. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

One of your problems is that you expect much more from others and your external environment and rely less on your own personal resources. The day you begin taking personal responsibility for your things and matters - your stress will reduce.

Hi. I am 27 years old girl. I have a friend. 10 years of friendship. I am very much possessive on her. And she too on me. But these days past 4 months. She has got other close friend.

Dear lybrate-user, I am sorry to learn about your situation. Well, it is beyond our control whether a person will stay in our lives or not. Please don't worry. Give yourself some time. In 3 months time it will not hurt so much and in 6 months time you will feel much much better. Some wise person once said" if you love someone truly set them free, if they are your's they will come back to you, if they don't they were never yours. In setting others free we set ourselves also free. Don't be sad about your friend having another friend. Think about the beautiful memories you have with her, smile and wish well for her. Engage in activities like singing, listening to music, reading poetry, writing your thoughts or poems, making painting, drawing, coloring, stitching, knitting, dancing- whatever you like. Doing any of these activities has therapeutic value. Once again, don't worry and please focus over doing things you like to do. You will feel better, soon.

Dear lybrate-user. If there is no other physical reason for your low energy feeling, this should be psychological lethargy. This happens due to negative thinking and obsession about your own health. You may not habituated with hard work. This has to be changed. You have to change your attitude and should work hard to get the habit changed. You could need attitude altering therapy. Take care.

Hi, I am working as a Manager with a leading software company in Hyderabad. Mam, I have good professional life (I am managing a team of 30 people in Hyd) and reports directly to Executive board members. I am married, and my partner is working as a manager in a software firm and we are blessed with a kid of current age 5 years. The exact problem that I am facing is, unknown fears while my turn comes to present my content/ I need to speak on stage. To be very precise about my problem, I am not fearing of English vocabulary / content / the audience. I am very confident on my vocabulary, stage mannerisms, or my content and body language. But, What exactly I fear is my turn to present. I mean if I am the 5th person to present on stage, My heart beat will be increased from normal to High, when the 3rd person is presenting and it further increases to very high when the 4th person is presenting and it goes rapidly high when they are announcing / calling me on stage for my turn to present. When I go on the stage / when I actually start to speak, I can sense that my heart is beating to its maximum and I can even sense it on my shirt, My mouth gets dried, and I start getting serious shivering, and the other person who is opposite to me, can easily sense that, I am highly nervous / anxious. I am considered as a good orator from my childhood and have actively presented many papers in seminars during my engineering. I can recall that, I had this problem during engineering, but it was very minimum. But from the day 1 of my career, this problem started growing and has become giant in my head now. Kindly note that, I will have these symptoms, only if I have a situation, where I need to present in an order (Waiting for my turn to present). But, if its a regular team meeting, or unplanned presentation an I am supposed to talk, I will be the best presenter. This problem is currently hitting me to the core, I started feeling highly nervous due to which, it started affecting my personal life as well. I was once very cool, But now, I am getting easily frustrated, getting anger easily, shouting on my wife, kid and even to my parents sometimes. I visited a doctor 2 years ago and has suggested me BETACAP TR-40 MG, and prescribed to take the pill a 30 mins to 1 hour before the presentation. I tried this from 2 years and the success rate is 60%. Sometimes, I haven't got any nervousness symptoms after taking the pill. But sometimes, even if I take 2 pills also, I am getting highly nervous. Kindly help me. Thank you.

Dear Lybrate user This seems to be an anxiety and its psychological. It can be treated Psychotherapy specially CBT. This has become a habit which needs to be changed. We can also find the cause of the problem and the anxiety associated with it can be removed easily. Take deep breaths before your presentation (belly breathing). Drink some water also. Try to notice the thoughts which come in your mind when you are waiting for your turn and try to challenge them. Do relaxation exercises or meditation or yoga. Also visualize yourself not having any anxiety once or twice a day. You can contact me for more information and a free consultation. Take care. Good luck.

Most likely your wife is having migraine headeche which is not ordinary headeche it is acute throbbing pain on one side or both side of the head. Sometimes associated with nauseas, vomiting, irritating and peculiar problem at the back side of head. Some may see flashings of lights allergic to light and sound. May be temporary loss of vision. Take pain killers and one has to change lifestyles. Or alternative medication.

Don't know why my hubby don't want to spend time with me. Even he doesn't want to talk with me. He comes home at late night and just want k nobody disturb him not even I and just want to sleep. I am dying with this attitude. I want his love and his attention. What can I do? How can I get my sexual as well as martial life healthy? Please help me. Please.

Relationship - How Should You Handle Your Breakup!

Master of Arts, Clinical Psychology, Ph.D., Neuropsychology
Psychologist, Udaipur
Relationship - How Should You Handle Your Breakup!

Human relationships are fragile in nature. It takes lesser time to break a relationship than to make one. Irrespective of its tenure, the end of a lovely relationship can leave you heartbroken and hamper your entire life. It not just affects your emotional well-being, but has the possibility to hamper your overall physical health. You must remember that there is no magic formula to help you cope up with the pain of losing. But, you will have to be determined to help yourself in this difficult time.

Most of us are forced to start our personal life from ground zero or the scratch, soon after we are left to struggle alone following our break-ups. You must have heard it from most of the people surrounding you that time heals all. But, it is your effort along with the time that will help you come out of the depressive phase.

Here are certain tips to help you to come out of the depressive phase after a break up:

  1. Talk or write: Any emotional problem grows bigger as you try to hide it from others or yourself. You should not bury the emotions within you and treat them as dead secrets. You will have to talk it out with friends and closed ones. If that is what you don’t want to do absolutely, you must at least try and relieve yourself of the burden by writing about it in private. Try and get rid of the tendency to suppress the unpleasant feelings. After pouring out all the feelings on paper, destroy the paper into shreds and throw it out of the house. While destroying the paper affirm, with this I destroy and uncreate the energy I invested in this relationship.
  2. Do take care of your body: The first thing that we tend to forget at the time of break up is our physical health and to maintain personal hygiene. Most of us skip our meals, don’t take showers and lead a secluded life. This should be avoided as your health comes first. You will have to take proper meals and maintain personal hygiene so that you don’t put your health at risk.
  3. Go and exercise: You can pump out your endorphins through cardio exercises. This helps a lot. This will also lower the stress levels and improve your cognitive functioning.
  4. Remember the great things in life: It is the time when you must look back and remember all the great moments of your life. You must not feel low and lose your self-confidence. Rather, you must feel confident by remembering the golden moments. Remind yourself of all your greater goals in life and treat this break up as a petty issue.
  5. Meditation: Meditation helps them focus their life on track.
    • Track your life - Create a journal where you want to go. Create several pointers in symbolic form in a journal or in drawing form. Give a date and time to each pointer. Create steps how will you reach the next pointer. And thus creating the track of your life. 
    • Declutter - by removing the things which were given by the person. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

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.

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.

Frustration - 4 Simple Ways You Can Overcome it

Psychologist, Bangalore
Frustration - 4 Simple Ways You Can Overcome it

In some cases, frustration can tend to be positive and can give you another perspective or view on things. It can also give you the ability to continue going further until you achieve your objective. However, there are times when you are going in circles and the dissatisfaction makes you frustrated and this frustration can cloud your mind and judgment. To avoid that from happening, there are certain approaches that will help you overcome your frustration:

  1. Be present in the moment: When you are frustrated, you tend to think about a lot of things. This keeps the individual completely occupied with different kinds of thoughts. Even if you try to avoid it or distract yourself, you again start to remember a disappointment from your past. You need to snap out of those thoughts and calm yourself down by centring your brain and thoughts on what is presently going on around you. You can do so in the following ways:
  2. Concentrate on relaxing: Take a seat, close your eyes and simply concentrate on the live events and concentrate on them for one to two minutes. Take quiet and marginally deeper breaths than regular and inhale with your stomach and not the chest. Concentrate on what is around you as of now. The sun sparkling in through your window, the children playing out on the road, the vehicles or the individuals passing by. Take in the details.
  3. Try to be happy with what you have right now: After you have pulled your concentration and thoughts back to where they can be most useful, focus on what is still positive in your life. The easiest and least demanding approach to do so is to centre it on acknowledging what you do have in your life right now. The most unimportant of things at this point can prove to be the most beneficial. For example:
    • A warm home and a rooftop over your head.
    • Water to drink.
    • Getting to eat great food.
    • Access to the internet and other forms of technology that make life easy.
    • Your loved ones.
  4. Focus on what you can do at this moment: With the amount of frustration and anger you might be feeling, it is important for you to concentrate on what you can do at the moment i.e. at present. It might involve figuring out what has been the cause for your frustration and how it can be dealt with right now or what the alternatives for it are.

Then again, you could also take your time to understand that you may have taken a lot of pressure or things have been extreme. Hence, you have to take some time or a couple of days to simply unwind, deal with yourself and maybe calm down a bit. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You can control your smoking with your dedication and strong will power. Nicotine withdrawals just take 72 hours to go. If you can stay away from nicotine for 72 hours one hour at a time you can not only control your smoking but can be able to stop it forever and can lead a very happy and meaningful life. Just don't smoke and stay healthy.

Pl advise whether oxetol 600 tab for Bipolar Disorder can be taken by chewing. Does swallowing or chewing it makes any difference. If so, what difference does it make.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Chewing chewable tablets may help faster absorption of the drug. There are chewable tabs which can be chewed but non chewable enteric coated tabs have to be swallowed as they should not come into contact with gastric acid and should directly reach intestines. Yu check your tables is enteric coated or film coated which can be chewed but bitter taste may be troublesome.
