Suggest Treatment For Anxiety And Sleep Disorder
Behaviour therapy and relaxation exercises can help in anxiety disorder
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related queries
I can understand your concern. After reading the history you have mentioned like feeling that something will happen wrong, poor sleep etc appears to be occurring due to some Anxiety disorder and not a sleep disorder. It needs proper evaluation and shouldn't be ignored. Anxiety can cause insomnia which can lead to depression and this may worsen into a lot of psychiatric disorders. Your BP and heart rate are in normal range and this is a good thing.
Stalopam Plus is a drug combination consisting of Escitalopram and Clonazepam and in my opinion this is right drug combination for your symptoms. The drug when taken regularly helps to control the symptoms of anxiety effectively. Don't fear of taking the drug for long because the drug is not a dependence producing drug and most of patients suffering from anxiety disorder take proper treatment even for long duration of time.
But if you dont want the psychoactive drugs regularly then in such case you can discuss with your doctor and can take medicines on SOS basis. The drugs like low dose benzodiazepines as Clonazepam, Etizolam or Beta blockers as Propranolol etc when taken on SOS basis help in symptomatic control of anxiety. Please discuss with your doctor for prescription of these drugs. In addition to these drugs please start doing Relaxation exercises like Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercise, Yoga, Breathing Exercise etc. These exercises help to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and are very useful. When coupled with behaviour therapy these methods have almost same efficacy as medicines. Consult a psychologist for behaviour therapy and relaxation exercises. Don't ignore your symptoms because anxiety disorders tend to affect day to day work and if not properly treated then these disorders may cause impairment in day to day life.
Thanks, I hope this helps you. Please feel free to ask again for more doubts.
Stalopam Plus doesn't cause dependence and its a safe drug
Hello again and thanks for asking a follow up
Stalopam Plus (Escitalopram and Clonazepam) and Lupizep plus (Paroxetine and Clonazepam) both are good anti anxiety and anti depressant drugs. Lupizep plus as also consists of Paroxetine, so would cause much sedation as compared to Stalopam Plus. So as your main problem is poor sleep then this can help you. Escitalopram doesn't cause much sedation but combination with Clonazepam results in good sedative effects so is better and it helps in relaxing the individual. In my opinion both are safe drugs and can be taken without fear if you have prescription of these drugs. This depends upon prescribing clinician that which drug is best for you.
Stalopam Plus does't cause dependence. It is safe drug and can be taken for long periods of time without any risk. On improvement gradual tapering of doses of drug are advised to prevent withdrawal effects. In my opinion take the complete tablet in evening time and dont divide the tablet. Sleeping pills will not help you much because your main problems are anxiety and abnormal thinking. To control these symptoms anti anxiety drugs are must for you. Wait for at least 4 weeks to see full effects of the drug. In about 4 weeks the medicine would control your symptoms and you will feel better.
Thanks, Hope this helps you. Please dont hesitate to ask again for more doubts. Take care
