Brief Answer:
Video consultation is available

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related queries

I can understand your concern. The history you have mentioned clearly shows that you have depressive disorder along with anxiety attacks. In most of individuals with depression long term treatment with medicines is advised. The drug Alprazolam helps in reducing anxiety and thus gives a subjective sense of wellbeing. But at the same time it is associated with risk of development of tolerance and dependence. So for proper relief of your symptoms there is need to start proper antidepressant drug therapy. Medicines like Sertraline, Fluoxetine etc can be used. These medicines help to reduce the anxiety and will provide a symptoms free state. Try to limit the use of Alprazolam once you become stabilised on these medicines.

Yes you can contact us with video consultation. You have to contact health care magic customer care team for more details.

Thanks, If you have more doubts please ask again.

Brief Answer:
The drug is a controlled medicine

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Yes try to reduce the doses progressively if possible. Alprazolam is a sedative drug and is classified as controlled substance. It's not possible to prescribe the medicine online because of legal controls.

Brief Answer:
Prescription can't be written on basis of video consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Yes video consultation is possible, for that you have to contact customer care healthcaremagic.com for details. But even through video consultation prescription is not possible. Many regulations are there and this will cost you money only. For a professional opinion about problem you can seek a consultation.

Brief Answer:
Due to rules I can't prescribe by online consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Yes I am a Psychiatrist but as this is an online forum so as per the rules I can help in making a diagnosis, in providing second opinion, in providing the opinion regarding medicines, the doses and the side effects. I can't prescribe because of rules. If you can explain the problems in detail including onset, duration, progression etc then I can help in making a provisional diagnosis and can suggest medicines. But to purchase these medicines you have to visit at least a GP.

Thanks
