Take this medicine in the dose and duration advised by your doctor as it has habit-forming potential. If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. Finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important not to stop taking this medicine suddenly as it may cause withdrawal symptoms.

Some common side effects of this medicine include delayed ejaculation, low sexual desire, vomiting, memory impairment, depression, and confusion. It may also cause dizziness and sleepiness. So, do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. It may cause weight gain or weight loss depending upon person to person. To prevent weight gain, you can eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. On the other hand, weight loss can be prevented by increasing food portions in your diet. It is important to inform your doctor if you develop any unusual changes in mood as it can cause suicidal thoughts.

Dear sir, I have been experiencing severe stress and frustration since last 4 month due to some personal emotional attack (6 year love relationship breakup). There are also some additional career related issues. Now, I can't give concentration to my daily activities since last 4 months. There are too much negative thoughts coming any time in my mind. Please help me sir. I consult a psychiatrist and he prescribed me GALOP 10 and ZAPIZ 0.5 for 20 days. But after finishing the prescribed course, my stress again outbreaks. Please help me sir. What is the best time to take these two medicines?
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatry
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. Treatment for Recurrent Depressive Disorder , psychotic disorders, Bipolar Affective Disorder and OCD usually lasts for much longer.To monitor any potential side effects and 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. Zapiz is only initially given for anxiety, the dose of antidepressant needs to be optimised to response and dose which helps complete recovery without side effects is continued.
