What Are The Side Effects Of Deanxit?

I have been prescribed Deanxit by a Neurologist, for a period of 2 months, to deal with my balance problems. The doctor recommended two pills a day. I took this medicine one year ago for a period of 15 days only. I favorably responded to the medicine and was able to restore my balance again, however, when I stopped taking it the problem appeared again but it was less annoying than before. Now, I am considering going back to the medicine as I am starting to feel slightly worse. I am concerned about the safety of this medicine as I hear the use of Deanxit is banned in its own country of origin due to lack of studies which prove its safety. Is it addictive? Does it have side effects? Is it difficult to withdraw from Deanxit? Isn t there an alternative which is lighter and even safer if it turns out to be unsafe? Which one of the following medicine has lesser side effects than the other? 1.Amitriptyline 2.Xnanx 3.Deanxit 4.Cipralex

Hi,

Deanxit has a combination of two drugs -- Fluxopentixol is mainly an anxiolytic drug and Melitracen mainly an anti-depressive drug. The drug is effective on a vast no. of mental conditions including anxiety, depression and schizophrenia etc. Though no satisfactory data are available on the comparative addictiveness and habit forming tendencies of Amitriptyline, Xanax, Deanxit and Cipralex, still addictiveness and habit forming tendencies may be in descending order as -- Xanax, Amitriptyline, Deanxit and Cipralex.

However, effectiveness of Cipralex on mental disorders seems less as compared to Deanxit. Therefore over all Deanxit appears an effective drug on many of the mental disorder. No major studies have shown any major side effect of Deanxit. However, a small study had shown a small effect of a limb tremor which resolved with discontinuation of medicine.

No concrete reasons have been presented for banning this drug by the govt. of Denmark, the country of origin of this drug. Indian Govt. has generally a policy of banning a drug, if it is banned in the country of its origin. So, in my opinion your neurologist seems right in prescribing you Deanxit.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
