Is it safe to take flunil 20 with nexito 20 ?my psychiatrist prescribed these pills per day?
Flunil (Fluoxetine) and Nexito (Escitalopram) both belong to class of SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor). They both are effective in a treatment of Depression, Anxiety Disordes and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and a lot of other Psychiatric Disordes. The combination is usually safe for majority of people. These are not sedatives, however few people do feel sleepy and can be taken at night in such cases. The best option for you may be to get back to treating Psychiatrist for specific answer in your case as the effect, as well as, the adverse effects depend on a number of factors unique to an individual.

Dear user, Nervousness or 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. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart 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. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

There is usually no interaction between the two medications that you mention. Also, ​the antidepressant that you mention and most antidepressants start working in about 2-3 weeks from beginning therapy. If you need further clarification, please consult a psychiatrist online who will help with your problems. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Generalised anxiety disorder is very common and can be treated with the right intervention. Your doctor has given you good medications. Infact all doctors have the best interest of the patient in their heart. Please try to develop faith on your doctor and only then does any mode of treatment work. Avoid googling excessively for medicines, effects and side effects. You will need to give atleast 2-3 weeks for the effect to come about. Good luck.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. All the best.
