Hi ,libotryp contains amytryptaline and chlordiazepoxide. Tryptomer just contains amytryptaline. Chlordiazepoxide is addictive and given as short term. Hence your doctor has changed the medications. You could ask your doctor to review and consider alternative to chlordiazepoxide.

Dear sir, medicines are not the only solution to depression and anxiety, having said that I do not imply you stopping them but along with it there are other solutions such as yoga, breathing exercises, deep realxation techniques etc and yes ofcourse psychotherapy being the most important. During the session of counseling the reasons of anxiety and depression will be assessed, the severity will be gauged and an appropriate treatment plan will be charted out. Its highly recommended you start therapy. Over the course of time it may help with lowering your medicine dose to completely stop it too. Psychotherapy is proven to prevent relapse better than medicines can help.

Dear user if you don’t want to take medication for life time then please wake up yourself, medicines are not a perfect solution for mental health, you have to work on your own, your will power, your mind and thoughts. You are too young. But due to certain reasons if you are on antidepressants you have to take some extra care of yourself. I donã¢â€â™t know what are the circumstances under which you are taking medicines, I want to know the whole details about your disorder. But I must say donã¢â€â™t depend on the medicines and donã¢â€â™t make it a habit for future. You need counseling session for a better control on this disorder and medicines. Medicines are not the only solution, counseling is a best option for you so that you could better understand yourself and save yourself from the side effects of medicines. Please call and discuss your problem in detail and then iã¢â€â™ll be able to help you better. My contact no is mobile.

Yes, with your psychiatrist advise you can mix and give. Leaving one medicine asprito and giving the other may not be beneficial, sometimes defeats the purpose. Asprito also come under the brand name arip mt mouth dissolving form, which easily dissolves. Good luck.

You are being treated for depression and social phobia but you don't say for how long. Treating this condition with medication only will not suffice. Please consult with a counselor for methods of coping with your problems. Your phobia and anxiety are likely causing loneliness. There is a lot of fear associated with your life and people and that has to be dealt with pronto. You will avoid people because you are suspicious of them. Do some Yoga meditation, and lots of exercise. A large and strong heart, obtained by good exercise, will respond to fear and stress more calmly i.e. it will pump blood more efficiently and with less beats it will supply oxygenated blood to wherever it is required. Make an effort to meet people by attending workshops, seminars, conferences, talks, discussions, meetings, and gatherings that expose you to other people in the guise of certain topical issues. Join social groups and clubs too. Fix a time schedule and follow a tight sequence of activities. I do not expect you to rush with these suggestions but to stagger it out in a developmental fashion. Your life will certainly improve and, if you stabilize the situation, there are many possibilities.

Smartphone or internet addiction can also negatively impact your life by: increasing loneliness and depression. While it may seem that losing yourself online will temporarily make feelings such as loneliness, depression, and boredom evaporate into thin air, it can actually make you feel even worse.

Lybrate user, it's not a good practice to stop the medications abruptly, without your psychiatrist's advice. Your symptoms may be reappearing in a few weeks. The medicines you are on are supposed to be taken for a long time and if your doctor thinks to stop them, the dosages will be tapered systematically. Better consult your psychiatrist.
