I have depression and anxiety. Since last year thrice I had panic attacks. Several painful conditions with all tests are okay. I know it due to the mind. I take alprax sometimes. It helps but keeps me drowsy and after 24 hours. Again I feel depressed.

Dear Lybrate user, looks like you're suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression. Taking sos medicines will not be of help. You must visit a psychiatrist and based on the severity of your problems, get started on a proper course of medicines, as adviced. At the same time, you will benefit from psychotherapy to deal with the issues leading up to these problems at the level of the mind. For this, you will need to visit a clinical psychologist. Hope this helps.

Alprax is temporary solution, just when get such attack it helps but it doesn't work on root cause and prevent future attacks. You need to consult a psychiatrist for detail discussion and evaluation so that proper diagnosis can be made and accordingly better treatment option can be suggested which will prevent future attacks. All the best.

Depression is a real problem that needs to be addressed. We also need to clarify what you mean by panic attacks since you mention that you had them thrice last year. With the limited information provided by you it seems like you need help with treatment for depression and anxiety, and alprax is not the right medication for you. From the form you have filled out it seems like you have several problems like ??bronchitis, allergic rhinitis, hypertension, hypothroidism, indigestion/heartburn, severe hairfall, spondylitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, apnea, cataract and food allergies. We hope you have had these problems addressed. If yes then we need to know the medications you are on. If not we might need to run some tests and find out more and proceed further. In any case it seems like it would be hugely hugely beneficial for you to consult us online or consult a psychiatrist in-person at the earliest. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, an appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.
