Anxiety Questions

My doctor has prescribed me lonazep 0.5 mg for night so I can fall asleep. And paxidep cr 25 to take in day for my stress and anxiety. But neither do I feel sleepy effect of lonazep nor do I feel the mood altering effect of paxidep. Previously I was put on nexito forte for 20 days that didn’t help either. Does this mean I need a higher dose? I’m not feeling any of the benefits that these medicines give and it’s nearly been a month now.

I can understand what you are going through. Please consult a psychologist in your town who may take some psychological tests to analyze your issues. There is not only medication but other treatments like, relaxation, prayer, cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness. These are treeatments to instill positive frame of mind and hope. By positive frame of mind I mean the brain chemicals will secrete while our thoughts turn into positive. Prayer, deep breathing etc are for relaxation only. Alone medications sometimes does not yield desirable and expected results. In case of any doubt, please feel free to contact me.

Hello you please undergo an evaluation. It is not necessary to be a panic disorder. How ever be relaxed. Do some breathing exercises, distract yourself to activities, talk to people around. Eat adequate food and sleep well. But need a direct consult or a video consult at the earliest. Take care.

My doctor prescribed me nexito forte 10s for my anxiety, stress told me to take at night before sleep. But I do not feel any effects of the medicine which should make me feel good or less worries, none effects are been seen. It’s been a week I am taking the dosage. At times I even took 2 at once but it only makes me sleepy, yawning throughout the day but no relaxing or calming effect.

Hello lybrate-user. As you have been prescribed nexito forte, it's important to understand that it takes atleast 2-3 weeks to see it's effects. That is how it's mechanism of action is. I would strongly suggest you to not get disheartened and impatient and continue taking the medication. Also, don't change the dosage on your own and only take the dose prescribed to you. Taking a higher dose than required can cause avoidable side effects. If you have any doubts regarding your treatment, you can always ask your doctor about the same. I wish you good health and smooth recovery!

My psychiatrist has prescribed me nexito forte 10s, to take every night after meal for 20 days. It does not make me feel sleepy or does’t put me to sleep, but the next day I feel very sleepy and very drowsy. I feel something is off here or maybe i’m not being given the right medication.

It is due to the medication only, which produces day time grogginess. If it persists the medication needs to be changed, discuss with your psychiatrist and get the needful done. Good luck.

If you are advised to take it on s.o.s basis, then it is fine. Otherwise, you can consult a nearby psychiatrist in-person and discuss regarding other alternatives for anxiety & palpitation (vilazodone or vortioxetine) which do not cause any significant sexual dysfunction. Thanks

Your mom seems to be having definitely emotional problems which is affecting herself and others at home. It can be mood swings from stress or agitated depression in old age. It is wise to consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated and take treatment. It will most likely improve her emotional well being and indirectly improve your anxiety as well. Good luck.

Don't lessen the medication without consulting your doctor. If you are feeling sleepy, it may be because you are taking it late int he night. I suggest that you take your medication early in the evening and have your dinner early too. This way the drug effect will wean off in the morning and make you feel less sleepy. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 92% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Sometimes, fear may have originated in childhood and your body, more than you brain, remembers the emotion and will react with heightened fear even for the slightest provocation or stimulus. Sometimes, you may not even need a stimulus! these matters can ideally be resolved in therapy only, and exclusively. Accordingly, you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: the former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality development course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

You are being treated for depression and anxiety. You need to improve your sleep for sure. Sleep for less than 6 hours can induce various disorders both directly and indirectly. You may also suffer from hysteria and can give yourself all kinds of disorders like you describe. I suggest that you seek the help of a counselor too and work on your emotions, especially anger and fear. These may have childhood influences and it is best to work these out with a therapist. These complications will continue if you do not combine medication with counseling.
