Doctor, I am 42 years male; suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder & Depression
since 9 years. I have been on Anti-depressants, benzos. Since 6 years i am also having type 2 diabetes
. on metaformin xr 500 mg twice daily. but, may be because of anti-depressants like venlofaxine xr 75 mg/1 day, and some benzos like etizolam
, i have been feeling intense fatigue, weakness, oversleepiness, lethargy sine 2 years. I was advised Modafinil
100mg/day. And iam taking modafinil 100 mg/1 day regulary since 7 months. But, since 4 months i am having chest discomfort
, racing heart/fast heart beat may be 100 beats/minute. mild tingling pain
in the heart continuosly. Whether this is because of modafinil? whether modafinil safe for long term use? what is its adverse effects?
But 1 month back ECG was done, and it was normal sinus rythym. Now, today 2D Echo was done. Its findings are Normal, EXCEPT - LV Diastolic Dysfunction
. What is this? And physician told me to get FBS, ECG after 3 days. Mean time he advised Propronolol 10 mg - 3 times a day. Am I having any serious cardiac problem? May i use Inderol 10 mg for 3 days? Whether this will cause low B.P.? May kindly answer and advice future course of action please.
