Brief Answer:
Yes, they are effective medications.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

First of all, I like to inform you that when the anxiety starts affecting your performance, is considered as a disease and needs treatment. Unfortunately, the traditional system of medicine (homoeopathic, ayurvedic) have limited options when it comes to management of anxiety and I think no result with homoeopathic medicine speaks about it.

Secondly, anxiety disorder is unlikely to go away by itself without consistent efforts. You need to follow your doctor's advice along with taking medications. The prescribed medications are well studied for anxiety disorders and it is expected that there will be some relief by one week period. However, I like to clarify the complete response may take 8-12 weeks.

I hope this helps you.

Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.

Thanks and regards.

Brief Answer:
Yes, most likely.

Detailed Answer:

Hi XXXXXXX,

It is true that most anxiety disorders start after major life events including illnesses and cause a devastating effect on the individual.

I think the same is true for yourself as evidenced by loss of job and suffering.

However, it is also true that after proper treatment recovery can be expected in full form. I must caution you that 15 days is never enough to cure anxiety disorder but they are often enough to see some improvements. Most anxiety disorders take 8-12 weeks as a minimum to have full control.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks and regards.

Brief Answer:
It is for anxiety.

Detailed Answer

Hi XXXXXXX,

Etizola beta is for immediate control of anxiety and can cause sedation as a side effect. I think your doctor advised rightly by reducing the dose of Etizola beta when it was causing side effects.

The effect on sleep can be expected in the coming weeks when the anxiety is controlled.

I hope this helps you further.

Thanks and regards,
Dr. Ashok Kumar, Psychiatrist
