Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Placida is actually a combination medication which contains Flupentixol
(an anti-psychotic) and Melitracen (an anti-depressant), but this combination works well as an anti-anxiety
agent. Now, regarding the treatment of sleeplessness
), the first step in management is a detailed assessment to establish the probable cause.
So, I think it is important to have a detailed evaluation to find out the likely cause so that treatment is then targetted according to the cause. I think that Placida is a good option since it does not have an addiction potential and can be stopped without much problems after some time. Like any medication, it can also have some side effects, but they are usually mild and seen only in a very small proportion of people taking the meication.
Wish you all the best.
