I'm suffering from insomnia from last 20 years, initially was taking prescribed medicines, but from last 5 years I was just randomly on either Restyl 1 mg or Trika 1 mg or Alprazolam. As now its very difficult to get these medicines without prescription and the fees of the psychiatrist is very high. I'm always negative in my thoughts, not social and like to be alone always. My personal life is also very disturbed and also no support from family too.

Hi lybrate-user, just stop it, if you have taken it by mistake once or twice. If you continue to take it regularly, it is addictive and will have an impact on cognitive abilities in the longer run.

I am not sure who got you hooked onto sleeping pills. On a longer run they will shrink your brain, resulting in early onset dementia, personality changes, memory changes, even withdrawal seizures. Kindly consult a psychiatrist, get your sleep evaluated, and he will gradually wane you off the sleeping pills and give pills which promote sleep by acting on the cause of sleep disturbance, he may also educate you on sleep hyigiene.

A medicine cannot be avoided by starting another medicine and you have to gradually taper the dose spread alternate days and move on to one in two days and finally stop it.

Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine. It affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with anxiety. Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.Tramadol is used to treat moderate to severe pain.

Depends on your anxiety. Alprazolam causes dependence if taken for long term. Better to follow your doc's advice. Good luck.

For stomach problems do this 1. Don't Overeat 2. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style. This is most important n non negotiable part 7.
