Consulted doctor for panic disorder. Prescribed paxidep. What are the side effects? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Doctor.. my name is XXXXXXX and I am an employee of XXXXXXX
I am 38 years of old
Good Afternoon.. Doctor
Please proceed with your query.
my question is.. a month back I visited a doctor for my panic disorder
I was tensed and very stressed out, and hence decided to visit a doctor
I was advised to visit a Phycatrist as this had happened to me some 2 years back
I did and he prescribed PAXIDEP 25 mg to treat the same
now, I am a bit concerened with the sie effect of this medicine
I am normal now and pretty ok..
my panic and stress normally happen when I am outside my home country and not on a regular basis
Had you been continuing the same medication and dosage for the last 2 years?
just 15-20 days back
I was abroad and just came back and visited the doctor
and he prescribed. I was your opinion on the same
The medications usually started on a psychiatric basis, cannot be stopped suddenly.
It has to be gradually cut down and then stopped.
but I am a bit worried with the side effects I read on the website
he has prescribed me for 4 months.. so your opinion is to continue and consult him?
You should consult him again after one month of first consultation.
Or if you feel disturbed by its effects.
ok.. no I am absolutely fine
no side effects as such.. but. I just wanted to have second opinion
If you are having difficulties like any of those said in its side effects, you should contact the psychiatrist.
If you are feeling much better with the medication, the psychiatrist himself will reduce the dosage.
ok.. so should I visit him sooner
and tell him that I am feeling better
and take his advice?
Take the medication for atleast 2-3 weeks. Then you can have a revisit.
ok. thanks doc
One more thing.
will do accordingly
I can understand the worry you are having regarding the side effects.
yes.. that is what is troubling me
It is natural to have the worry.
Since you have already started taking the medication, and you are not having any difficulty with it,
I have consulted one of the best doc from Manipal hospital in Bangalore.. a renowned hospital.. still.. I am a bit concerned
moreover, you are feeling better.
So, the dosage would be right for you.
ok. thanks.. that is a relief
And at these small doses, they do not cause any side effects.
ok.. thanks Doctor....
So, be at peace, have medications regularly.
You will get well soon.
I will visit him after the dosage.. thanks doctor
thanks a ton.. have a nice day
thanks for your kind help
Hope I have been able to alleviate your concern.
Do you have any other queries?
yes doctor, it is a relief now.. thank you so much
no doctor. thanks for your time
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
