Psychiatrist 's  Response
thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
lack of concentration , if associated with sadness of mood, and disinterest is integral part of depression.
You may have performance anxiety also.
drugs usually take some time to act. so you should wait for some more time.

Oh dear ! Relax.. Chill out !!

Unless you are cool headed, you will not be able to organize your work well.

Make it a point am talking about " Organizing " ; where time management and workload management is important. Understand the exam structure and study accordingly.

Try following tips:

1. Yoga / meditation / Morning walk
2. Timely study
3. Balanced Diet

All the Best !! Let me know what all you have tried and how much was it useful to you !

Dear Dinesh, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
You have passed 12th exams-- so you are about 17-18 years of age. Its a tender age-- junction of teenage & adulthood. Few of your problems may be due to this only. IInd, psychiatric medications usually take some time for their effects; so please continue medicines. You may also take counselling. Time management as suggested here by Dr Rakesh is also essential. Good luck.

Dear Dinesh
your problem is bad memories of past. Life is never a cat walk, it is full of ups and downs, you should take strength from you past experience and stand in this world on your own might, just remember what man can not do He can do. so leave the things to Him. You are at a very tender age so i donot recommend to instal a feeling of being sick. pick up you reserve enegy and with help of forgiveness and devotion do meditation, concentrate on your future and not on past that is dead now. you have a bright time ahead. enjoy it. Amongst Ayurvedic medicines i would recommend you cap. streswin 1 bd and brahmi vati with gold 1 bd.
wish yoou all the best.
