Hi Kindly share your symptoms of your Problem
how to tackle depression and post traumal stress disorder?
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatry
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. A complete solution to ones problems in a single question is thus not possible. Internet will give you generalised tips and tricks but they are hardly of any use. I suggest you to visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity for clinical evaluation.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. After how many days of taking Serotin will I start feeling better?

You may start to see an improvement in your symptoms after 1-2 weeks of starting the treatment. In case you do not see any improvement, do not stop the medicine and consult your doctor. It may take around 4-6 weeks to see the full benefits of the medicine.

Q. I feel that my symptoms have worsened after having started taking Serotin. Can I stop it on my own or do I need to consult the doctor?

No, do not stop taking Serotin abruptly, without consulting your doctor. This is a common problem with Serotin that initially you may feel that your symptoms have worsened but the benefits start appearing after 1-2 weeks. If the worsening does not improve even after 1-2 weeks, you must consult your doctor.

Q. Can Serotin affect my sex life?

Yes, Serotin use may affect your sex life. It can cause decreased sexual desire and inability to reach orgasm in both men and women. Additionally, men may even experience abnormal erection and ejaculation.

Q. What is the effect of Serotin on children?

Serotin should not be used in children under 18 years of age. The reason being, patients under 18 have an increased risk of experiencing side effects such as suicidal thoughts, aggression, oppositional behavior and anger when they take Serotin. If your doctor has prescribed Serotin for your child and you are worried about these side effects, discuss it with your doctor.

Q. I have been taking tamoxifen for breast cancer. Can I take Serotin with it?

No, you should not take Serotin if you are receiving tamoxifen. Tamoxifen often causes hot flashes (episodes of feeling extremely hot), which can be treated with Serotin. But Serotin may reduce the effectiveness of tamoxifen and can lead to recurrence of breast cancer.

Q. Do I need to be careful while taking Serotin if I am a diabetic?

Yes, you need to be careful while taking this medicine if you are a diabetic. Serotin may alter your blood sugar levels and your dose of insulin or antidiabetic medicines may need adjustment. Talk to your doctor regarding this and keep a regular check on your blood sugar levels.
