Hi there ~
Deanxit is one of the many benzodiazepine
group of medications that is helpful with anxiety
. However, there are studies that indicate that depression
is made worse by benzodiazepines. Deanxit has a very short half life, i.e., it is eliminated from the body rapidly and also has a quick onset of action, usually anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes. Drowsiness
is a side effect of the medication and using any other kind of sedative including alcohol is best avoided. Your body may have become used to the medication and you may need to go off of deanxit slowly by a tapered dose method. Please consult a qualified psychiatrist
for doing so.
I hope this helped. Take care.
