Thanks for writing to us.

Actually it contains a combination of two psycho active drugs and is meant for short term use only. It is usually used only for depressive disorders and has got minimal anti anxiety effects.

You need to discuss with your physician regarding the long term use of Deanxit.

You can ask your treating physician to look for better alternatives which are safer like propranolol, alprazolam, zolpidem, etc.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.
