Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Nexito Forte is a combination tablet which contains two medication - Escitalopram which is an anti-depressant and Clonazepam which is a sedative. Now, the decision regarding the duration of treatment and when to discontinue the medication depends on various factors and has to be done on a person-to-person basis. In order to advise you better regarding this, I need a few clarifications:

- What symptoms did you have initially and how severe were they?

- How long did it take for your symptoms to get controlled with this medication?

- How long have you been symptom-free?

- Have you had previous such episodes of depression in the past?

- Are you in a stable state in your life currently - with regard to family, career, financial position and social functioning?

Please get back to me with these clarifications and I will guide you appropriately.

Regards,
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar

I am curently take ranitidine for gord that i have, and been taking amitriptyline 25 mg at night for last for last 6 weeks, and allso Zopiclone 3.75 mg 2 at night, 13 weeks, doctor said that should reduce amount to 1 a night then gradualy stop taking them. wondering if the tablets an cause irregular hearbeats like i get, can feel it slow then feels like skips a beat and feel it flutter in my chest.
