Hello and welcome to HCM

The problems that you have mentioned are causing sleep disturbance. The cause of this sleep disturbance can be stress, anxiety or depression.

Lonapez (Lorazepam) is an anxiolytic, sedative/ hypnotic.
It reduces anxiety and induces sleep and maintains sleep during night.

Nexito plus as an antidepressant which reduces the negative and low feelings and brings about a sense of well being.

It is good that you have started responding to the problems.
But you should not stop the drugs without consulting your prescribing doctor.
Sudden stoppage can precipoitate the symptoms again.
Side effects are associated with long time use.
How much time has elapsed since you started the medicine?
The common side effects are drosiness which can be esperienced the next day. However, it is not seen in all patients.
Reinerve plus is vitamin B 12 preparation and it is a supplement. It can be continued and other drugs do not interfere with its action.

Thanks and take care
