Kindly note that benzodiazepines are to be taken when necessary mainly to ensure that dependence doesn't develop. Along with sylkam, your psychiatrist may have prescribed a regular medication for you to take to overcome anxiety while you use sylkam when necessary. Please re-visit your psychiatrist and discuss in specific about the regular anti-anxiety medication such as ssris to see if the dose can be increased or if it needs to be changed.
