Yes, you need to consult a psychiatrist who will move you away from alprazolam (anxit) to something less dependence producing and at the same time give some neuronal stabilisers to treat the withdrawal and then make your sleep natural and healthy. All the best.

That is not the right combination for long term treatment. Anxit i.e. Alprazolam can produce severe unwanted side effects. Consult a psychiatrist, and he/she may give ssri, snri or tca group of medications which act on the cause for anxiety, also behavioral methods need to be incorporated.

Hello lybrate-user, I understand your situation and it would not be a good idea to increase the dose of the medication since this medication has a very high addiction potential. Read more on url/medicine/anxit-0-5-mg-tablet please consult me on the paid platform for issues that need resolution regarding your depression.

Dear Lybrate user, please do not take much medicines for your health problem. Better to maintain daily life with some behavioural therapies and treatment procedures. It is good to use food with less oil and masala. You can use fruits and green vegetables in your daily food. Everyday you do some exercises (like simple physical exercises, faith on god, prayers in the morning, engage in certain activities you like most, interact with your friends and relations. Helping and serving for the poor people, psychological self care like self reflections and do some activities you are an expert. I hope that you can understand the above things in your daily routine. If you need more advice and suggestions, you can consult me.

Anxiety. I had anxiety and illogical fears and worries. Initially my doctor prescribed anxit plus .5 mg then another doctor prescribed anxit .25 mg. I am ok. I took these medicines for many years .no side effects. Can I continue these medicines? If I discontinue I am getting anxiety heavily.

Plain anxit tablet is very harmful on a longer run as it contains only alprazolam which is a benzodiazepine and causes long term side effects like dependence, cognitive decline, personality changes, withdrawal seizure and dementia. Ideally for anxiety ssri or snri group of medications are given for long term, that too with regular periodic psychiatrist review for monitoring the same. Good luck.

Hello. There are many indications for the use of anxit which is a benzodiazepine. And these drugs are available only with the prescriptions as these are misused by many people as drug of abuse. So a psychiatrist would want to know the details of your intake and reason for it so that you get the required prescription.

Dear lybrate-user, anxit (alprazolam) will reduce your stress immediately. So you feel better with it. So you can take it only for short term and stop it. Or, you can use it whenever necessary occasionally. Otherwise you will become dependent on it. You may not learn to manage your normal day-today stresses well. So take anxit till you learn to manage better. Pan 40 mg will reduce the acidity. Please remember that acidity is one of the symptoms of stress/anxiety.

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.

You have to form a good sleeping pattern and if you want a prescription you have to do consulting . You may need a counselling as well . Plan to calm mind by meditation and do yoga
