Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You seem to be harboring recurrent intrusive thoughts of harm befalling your loved ones. These thoughts can cause guilt even though you know that they are irrational. However, you might try to control these thoughts. It will be of no use. The symptoms that you have described are a part of anxiety spectrum disorder. You can have significant relief from your symptoms with medications. As these symptoms have a biological cause, the problem can be right. I suggest you capsule Prodep 20 mg (Fluoxetine) once daily and tablet Clofranil 25 mg (Clomipramine) at night for two weeks.

Kindly revert in case of any queries.
