It was correctly advised that S celepra might cause sexual side effects. But as you are no longer taking it, it is washed out of your system and won't affect you now. About swelling on left side of penis. You need to show it to sexologist or dermatologist. Doctor need to examine that to comment on that. If you are not taking S celepra then, don't worry there won't be any sexual side effects. Please discuss alternative medications with your doctor for OCD. As you need to continue medication for OCD. If you wish to change Psychiatrist, I shall help you in finding one. - Dr. Ambrish Dharmadhikari Consultant Psychiatrist, Mumbai
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 !
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
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.
