Brief Answer:
Better to consult psychiatrist and get done counseling sessions.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your situation and problem.
You are having stress related symptoms.
Drugs are not the only solution.
First consult psychiatrist and get done counseling sessions.
Try to identify stressor in your life and start working on its solution.. Counselling plays very important role in stress management along with drugs.
And don't take these much zolfresh tablets. These drugs can be harmful. So avoid them.
Consult psychiatrist and first discuss your problem in depth.
Don't worry, you will definitely improve.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Start clonazepam or flunarizine.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on HCM.
I can understand your concern.
Clonazepam or flunarizine are better than zolpidem.
So better to take clonazepam or flunarizine.
These are prescribed medicines and so you will mostly need doctor's prescription for them.
Hope I have solved your query.

I have been taking .05 Clozapine twice a day for a year to treat Vertigo which was quite severe 3 years ago. Meclizine did not help but Clozapine does. In addition to that, I take Ambien 2-3 times a week for sleep. I was also drinking 2-3 ounces of Vodka nightly which I have discontinued. My plan is to wean myself off Ambien but am not sure about Clozapine because when I don t take it, my head starts spinning again.
