Brief Answer:
Amicon 10 side effects, B12 source

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

You are currently taking Amicon which is an antidepressant and painkiller. Usual side effects of Amicon are:
- Headache
- Nausea and vomiting
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Blurred vision
- Swelling of face, lips, eyelids, tongue, hands and feet
- Unexpected weight gain or loss
- Chest pain and discomfort
- Shortness of breath

Rare and uncommon side effects are:
- Weakness in one side of the body
- Slurred speech
- Seizures
- Decreased sexual urge
- Unusual bleeding

Nexito Forte is also a good medication. However, it depends upon you, which medication you respond to and tolerate. It can be Amicon or Nexito. Don't bother about it. However, Nexito is newer as compared to Amicon.

B12 is there in animal products like eggs, meat, milk, curd, butter. You can take boiled egg everyday. Try to include more dairy products in your diet. It will also help. Neurorex Forte will correct your current B12 deficiency.

Hope it will help you. If any doubt, do let me know. Thanks. Take care.

Brief Answer:
Brain map, Nexito forte side effects and use

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Your EEG report is incomplete. Please provide me the report of impression. I need to know about it.

You can use Nexito forte for sleep, depression and anxiety. After getting relief, you can gradual stop it under doctor's supervision. If you don't have depression and your main problem is insomnia, you should consult your doctor for it. You can take tablet Zolpidem or Clonazepam only. No need of antidepressant.

Nexito Forte contains both Escitalopram and Clonazepam. The side effects of Escitalopram are:
-Nausea, Headache
-Diarrhoea
-Fatigue.

Clonazepam side effects are:
- Sleepiness
- Uncoordinated body movements
- Slurred speech
- Dizziness
- Fatigue
- Memory impairment
- Irritability
- Headache
- Dryness in mouth
- Constipation

These side effects are not very common except sedation.

Hope it will help you. If you have any doubt, do let me know. Thanks. Take care.

Brief Answer:
Addiction potential and egg yolk use

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Nexito Forte contains Escitalopram and Clonazepam. Patient can become dependent upon both drugs and can use them for drug abuse. But if you regularly follow up with your doctor and take drugs under supervision, you will not be dependent upon it.

Another thing, if you have any history of depression, you need antidepressants. Please ask your doctor about it very clearly. To control it, you can follow other measures like family support, yoga, meditation, extra-curricular activities.

Egg yolk contains cholesterol. Please don't eat it on a regular basis. If you still want to, do regular exercise. You can have egg white daily.

Hope it will help you. If any doubt, do let me know. Thanks. Take care.

Hi doctor is it safe to use Amicon 10 mg daily will it casue any of above side affects listed by u i am confused on whether to use it or not i have manageable headache only
doctor
Answered by Dr. Ishu Bishnoi 11 hours later
Brief Answer:
Amicon use

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Please don't be confused. If you have mild and manageable headache, avoid any kind of painkiller.

You can take Amicon whenever you feel severe pain. The mentioned side effects are the known side effects. It is not necessary that they will occur in you. In my practice, I have found sedation as the most common and only side effect. Sometimes, patients complain about vomiting and constipation. The rest are very rare. Don't be afraid of using it whenever you have severe headache.

Hope it will help you. Thanks. Take care.
