Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
As you yourself are a pharmacist you realise that medicines should only be prescribed after clinical examination. Psychiatric evaluation is based on history, clinical symptoms, personality factors, ongoing psychosocial stressors and frequency and severity of symptoms. It requires direct interaction with the patient on a regular basis. Once diagnosed, a management plan is formed based on intensity and frequency of symptoms and associated biological and psycho social factors. Based on 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. The reason treatment is not effective is lack of proper follow up. I personally don't recommend benzodiazepine combinations, and prefer a combination of antidepressants and mood stabilizer if there is no response to just antidepressants.
