What Causes Persistent Anxiety And Depression Despite Taking Medication?
What is the dose of Prestiq you are taking?
Hello thanks for asking from HCM
I can understand your concern. What is the dose of Prestiq you are taking?
If even with proper doses your anxiety and depression is persisting then there is need for change in medicines. The symptoms you have are due to anxiety most likely. Use of Xanax on SOS basis apart from your regular doses can help.
Sertraline can be tried.
If the 50 mg Pristiq is not helping then the medicine should be changed. Sertraline can be used which is also an antidepressant. The drug is a very safe drug and is antidepressant of choice in elderly. You can talk with your doctor for this medicine.
The drug will help to reduce your panic symptoms and you will feel better. You can take 1-2 Xanax 0.25-0.5 mg on SOS basis as advised by your doctor.
