Sleep problems are often caused by underlying physical and/ or psychological cause. This requires examination of the patient so that proper treatment can be initiated. Often stress/ anxiety/ depression or mood disorder needs to be dealt with and sleeping pills are not adequate treatment. Please go through the link below for further understanding- http://drjyotikapoor.com/2015/01/26/sleep-disorders/
I suffered depression in the year 2000 due to some domestic problem. After some weight loss and sleeplessness I was diagnosied with depression by a Psychiatrist in Bangalore and I stated taking medicines Dothip-75 mg and Anxit- 25-0-50 mg and I continued for about 5 to 6 years, this dosage gradually reduced and now (in the year 2016) I am Taking Dothip-25mg and Anxit 50 mg both in the night. My Doctor suggested stopping Dothip tablet about 3 months back but after few days I started having mood problem then I again started taking Dothip 25mg tablet and I am now normal. My question is how long I need to take these medicines, I do not smoke and do not consume Alcohol. Please advise me. Thanks & Regards.
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Based in your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For first episode of anxiety/ depression/ panic, the usual maintenance phase is 6 months of asymptomatic period, after which medicines can be gradually tapered. But treatment may need to continue longer depending on severity and frequency of episodes. To take any decision to change medication or stop them, several factors have to be taken in account for which regular follow up with your psychiatrist is important. For second opinion, seek a proper consultation with another psychiatrist and take along your previous prescriptions. You should stop anxit though!
