I have palpitations from my childhood. It get triggered when I do some work or rush very hard. I consulted a cardio way back in 2011 and then referred to psychiatrist who then said I have anxiety and prescribed Feliz s10 which I am taking till now. Also Cardio prescribed Rosuvas for lowering my trigly and cholesterol. I am doing ok now. I tried reducing the anxiety tablet after consulting with my psychiatrist but I am getting head sightedness and not clear vision so doctor advised to continue full tablet. Now it is 6 years I am continuing medication for anxiety and cholesterol. I do not how long I should continue or will I have any side effects in long run. I am also not feeling strong after taking this medication. Any suggestions will help me.

Did you develop your coping skills. Usually anxiety disorder need one to two years treatment. But the duration will be decided based on symptom reduction and your performance. If you didn't change your lifestyle and improve your coping skills it will be difficult to stop medications.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, the medication helps reducing anxiety but does not deal with the core issue triggering anxiety n resultant physical symptom. Along with medication Psychotherapy will help you get to the root of anxiety n tackle it from there. You can take the sessions from me while consulting privately. When done regularly twice a day, this exercise gradually alleviates the anxiety and is a sure shot method to relieve anxiety. But should be done religiously. Make a self rating scale of 0 to 10 where 0 = absence of anxiety, 10 = highest level of anxiety experienced. Each time you set yourself to do this exercise - note your anxiety level on 0 to 10 scale in a copy. Do the rating before exercise and after the exercise. Twice daily. Thus in a day you get 4 readings. Anxiety Healing Music. OM jaap is one such mantra which allows your vibrations to become positive and aligns you to cosmic rhythm itself for ease in life.
