i am feeling like bubles in my ear
my husband has consultd a doctor regarding his negative thinking
Since when are you having this?
Let take up both the problems one by one.
You mentioned you feel like bubles in your ear. Can you explain about that?
my above problem is solved
i have consulted a ent
It good to know your problem is resolved, can you explain about your husbands problem?
physiatrist has suggested some tablets
but after taking those tablets he is sleeping continuesly
1.flunil-20(M) 2.desval er-500 3.zolfresh-10mg 4.qutipin fr100
These effects are usually seen initially.
these are the tablets suggested by him
what are these tablets mainly used for
he is a working profectional
he cant sleep continusly
it will spoil his work
He is on a 3 groups of drugs which act independently
to depress his thoughts.
All the drug except flunil can cause drowsiness.
Since he is on 3 drugs, I can understand the drowsiness he has.
he was asked to take flunil in morning and afternoon and rest in the night
As I mentioned earlier, the drowsy feeling usually reduces gradually.
As he is on 3 drugs which can cause more drowsiness, this is being transferred during the day time.
can he continue with the medication
If he is very drowsy and not able to concentrate on his work, we can reduce the dosage or withold one drug and add during the later part of treatment.
However these chances can be done only under the supervision of your doctor.
So if his work is affected severely and he feels extremely drowsy report back to his doctor to make the necessary changes.
These side effects will gradually reduce.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Are you there?
doctor told to stop flunil
and contonue the rest
How is he feeling after stopping this medication?
he has to try now
can u suggest any tablets in place of these which will not create drowsyness
Your wife is put on a class of medicines which are known to depress negative thoughts and other behaviour.
All the group of drugs which belong to that category have some amount of drowsiness.
And like I said earlier, most patients get over this drowsiness gradually with the treatment.
Since these are the initial days of your husbands treatment,
we can expect the drowsiness.
Your doctor is rightly managing him by changing the dose, reducing the medications to suit his needs.
If the drowsiness persist despite stopping this flunil, alternate dose or medicine adjustment can be started then.
Adding additional supplement instead of flunil or other drugs will not reduce his current problem (drowiness) now.
We can only wait and see how he responds and do the dose adjustment as needed.
