Questions Related to Tancodep

Hi, My grandfather who is 80+ years old was taking Tancodep on a regular basis for last 10 years. Recently after the ban of this drug combination, we cannot find this drug anywhere in India and he is having problems in leading a normal life. I was just wondering if there are any alternatives to this medicine? Can we find separate medicines with Imipramine & Diazepam? If taken in same combination as Tancodep after consulting a doctor, will it produce the same results? Appreciate any help on this! Thanks Abhinav
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Imipramine and diazepam are available seperately and effect is same but Long term use of diazepam is not recommended.

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.
