1. It is not advisable to take alcohol with medicines. 2. There is no heavy or light medicines. It's individual body's pharmacokinetic response. What suits one may not suit another. If you are having side effects, your psychiatrist can modify regimen accordingly. 3. A qualified Ayurvedacharya will know if he/ she can treat your condition. There are no comparative research studies between Ayurvedic and allopathic regimens to conclude if one is better than the other but as an Allopathy practitioner, I find satisfactory response with psychotropics. 4. Depression and anxiety are neurochemical responses to emetic and environmental factors. Treatment includes both medicines and psychotherapy for developing positive coping skills. Duration and response depend on a number of factors like history, symptom severity, duration and individual personality. Only time will tell if one is completely cured with or without medicines.
