You can start taking it half everyday and then on alternate days and then discontinue after a month. But please visit a psychiatrist at the earliest if there is any recurrence of sadness of mood, irritability, lethargy, sleep troubles, etc.

Hello Lybrate User before starting any Antidepressant I suggest you should get yourself examined for all possible contributing factors. This often helps decide treatment options. Please get yourself examined by psychiatrist in person.

Is its safe to take escitalopram (cipralex) for anxiety? i'm feeling more anxious after taking one tablet.

Hello, thanks for the query. If taken under proper medical supervision & for proper indication, escitalopram is a very good medication to relive depression & various anxiety disorders. May I know who prescribed you escitalopram & in what dose? what were your problems for which you were advised to take tablet escitalopram; so that I can help you better. Good luck.

hi, I can understand your feelings. I think here your mother's age to be blamed for her depression. In India most of the senior citizens just leave the hope for living because of their weak physical health and thus make themselves mentally and physically weak too. Try to make her happy by providing the atmosphere which she likes. You may invite someone whom she likes to talk to. Provide her with the food which she likes. Don't restrict her to eat . let her move on her own just keep an eye so that she doesn't fall. Put some nice music which she enjoys. Take her to the places like temple or satsang where she used to go when she was well. Tell other family members also to talk to her nicely. Take photographs with her. In short do all the activities which include laughter and happiness. Best wishes for you. regards Sunita

Dear user. There was also a decrease in sperm count and sperm motility in the fluoxetine groups compared with control mice.Three additional studies on human sperm suggested reduced concentration and motility and altered morphology with escitalopram14 and any SSRI,15 and reduced motility with any SSRI. Take care.

If she takes regular medications, attends psychiatrist review regularly and you people give her adequate and normal emotional support and she gets trained in social skills, she can have normal life. All the best for her.

Hi, I am using censpram lite, and betaloc 25 for anxiety since almost 7 months. Recently since 1 week im feeling dizziness and uneasy. Does it caused by the medication i'm taking? Shall I stop the medication now?

Beta loc 25 contains propranolol which decreases your bp, heart rate and may cause dizziness. Get your bp, pulse rate checked, ecg done. Second cause may be censopram lite, which contains escitslopram (antidepressant ,anti anxiety) and clonazepam (benzodiazepine, anti anxiety, hypnotic).since clonazepam causes sleep perhaps after getting up from bed under the influence of this drug you may have dizziness. Since your case requires detailed analysis kindly online appointment.
