Hello,

The best option here is to talk to the doctor who is treating your father mainly because many anxiety medicines can interact with the present medicines your father is taking. Therefore I suggest consulting your fathers doctor for treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. K. V. Anand, Psychologist
