I have been going through General anxiety disorder for more than a year now. I am consulting this Doctor from AIIMS and he has prescribed me the following drugs. S Celepra 5 and Petril 0.25. I want to know what all precautions I need to take with these meds. I also experience panic attacks too often. He has asked me to use petril as SOS too but it doesnt seem to help anymore. I am really going into depression because of my condition. Its not getting any better. Also I dont blame my doctor because I dicontinue and then continue my meds all the time. Please suggest me what should I do to get fine ASAP. Thanks !

The pharmacological treatment of anxiety disorders lies largely on SSRIs, in this case on escitalopram but the dose has to be optimised according to response and medication needs to be taken regularly. Too much reliance on sos Medicines eventually leads to in effectiveness of the drug. Please see your doctor to optimise the dose of S Celepra.

If you let your confidence down, you will develop helplessness ehic leads to depression. Instead of worrying about your weight, take action. Seek professional help. If you feel unmotivated, meet a psychiatrist, its neither too early nor too late for professional advice.
