Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am constantly unable to focus on anything in my life. My brain just seems like damaged. I feel alone, depressed, sudden anxiety attacks, shivering, numbness, extreme mood disbalance, fatigued, extra exhausted, strange short feeling in which I feel very bad for myself like guilty of anything. My mother always curses me and my brothers. Our family is wealthy, educated but my mother and father have some domestic issues which have never ever been closed even I have become 18 years old. I do not want to kill myself but I do not have any light ahead for living. I am not able to describe each and everything right now. I need to contact a psychiatrist or psychologist for better consultation.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You seem to have a mixed anxiety-depressive disorder. This is very common and about 10-15 percent of people have this problem. It is also very easily treatable. You will need to visit a psychiatrist and he will prescribe you SSRI type of medicines (such as Escitalopram 10 mg, or Fluoxetine 20 mg, etc) which will help with your problem.

It basically happens when some neurotransmitters such as serotonin reduce in your brain leading to a problem with handling the day to day stresses of life.

Medicines are usually given for two to four months and then tapered off slowly and stopped. In addition to the medicines, you can also undergo a few sessions of cognitive-behavioral therapy from a clinical psychologist. Also, do consider doing deep breathing exercises or progressive muscle relaxation daily.

Treatment plan

T. Nexito 10 mg (Escitalopram 10 mg) daily one at night after food.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
