Wait for some time to see full effects

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

I can understand your concern. I can't find any attached file (if any) with query but I have read the details you've mentioned with query.

She has been diagnosed with Depression since 2007 and she was on antidepressants (Amitriptyline and Escitalopram) on-off during that period. Even with antidepressants her symptoms like crying spells, rejection sensitivity and holding bad memories, retrospective falsification etc are persistent.

She has been advised to take Doxepin 75, Depran (Escitalopram) 10, Oxazepam 10, Trijee H and Felicita OD (Multivitamin). In my opinion her current treatment is right considering resistant nature of her depression.

Doxepin will help to supplement the actions of Depran and this will help to improve her resistant symptoms. Trijee H (I guess its trifluperazine and trihexiphenidyl, though I am not sure because its a brand name) will also supplement the actions. In resistant depression if conventional antidepressants fail to act then low dose antipsychotics help to improve the symptoms.

So wait for some more weeks to see its full effects. Any questions you want to ask about current medication the you can ask freely.

Thanks, Take care

Thanks for your response sir.

These all medicine is recommended by third doctor in this year only.
Before that there was long treatment from other two doctor which was not so much effective as it is now.
So, as a matter of satisfaction, I consult you for a second opinion as my mom is in pain since long time.

I tried to attach the recent file but it is not getting attached.

Trijee-h composition is trifluoperazine 2.5 mg and trihexyphrnidyl HCL 1mg.
Dosage - half tablet at bed time.

Rest all medicine composition are same as you mentioned, dosage 1 tablet each at bed time.

Thanks once again doctor.

Brief Answer:
Trijee H will help to supplement the actions of Depran

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.

Thanks for confirming to Trijee H composition. As I have mentioned earlier too, the low dose ant psychotic in Trijee H will help to supplement the actions of Depran and will help in reducing the symptoms of depression. She is on right medicines and will come out of her depressive symptoms. No need to worry.

If you are unable to attach the files and files can be copied then you can copy the words and paste in query. If the files are images format then consult customer care for difficulties you are having.

Thanks. Take care
