Hello,

Welcome to HCM,

franxit is an anti anxiety drug,if your disease is due to mental stress it is given but you will have to take for more longer period,along with it you will benefit from

1.having a bland diet

2.increase your fluid intake

3.take omez-d daily once

4.stop smokingand alcohol intake

5.decrease refined foods and fast food,have regular food timing.

6.yoga and meditation can be beneficial

Take care.
