Hi lybrate-user ji. Without proper consultation which is required for detailed case study. Me or any doctor cannot advise you properly. Still maxgalin is a kind of nerve tonic. Which will reduce the complaints. Still there are some homoepathic medicine which can help more and with no side effects. You may take Zincum Metallicum 30 one dose for three days. Report after 10 days.

Dear lybrate-user, You are consulting a psychiatrist already. He is giving appropriate drugs. I don't know the doses of each drug. However you can discuss with him the current problems also. He will adjust the dose. If you want to add something more, please add some alternate therapy to the drugs, like yoga, pranayama, mindfulness meditation, nature cure, exercise, creative hobbies, etc.
