Thank you for the prompt reply.
As discussed, I would talk with the psychiatrist to discuss the medications for the next visit. Also, I can understand I am trying to form a pattern because of my anxiety. Also, thank you for allowing me to ask a couple more questions.
1) What is the best time to take tablet Etizolam? I am trying hard not to find the pattern here, but it is bothering me to take tablet Etizolam in the middle of the night when I am already panicked, and I wonder if it might not be really useful for me. Is it any truth to the claim? For instance, would it be best to take tablet Etizolam alongside tablet Paxil which I take about an hour before my sleep? I am taking tablet Etizolam only when it is necessary. However, does taking the tablet Etizolam when you have some trouble sleeping and are somewhat in an arousal state work make sense? Is 0.5 mg tablet Etizolam appropriate, or might I require more?
2) As I said after my recent episode, I am having serious anticipatory anxiety in day-to-day life regarding my sleep. I know this is worse on some days and manageable at other times. I am only thinking about sleep mostly now. I would also ask my primary psychiatrist. However, currently, the thoughts are troubling me daily, and the solution I was able to find is not to think about this and treat it every day like it is a last (box approach), but it is hard for me to do. Should I take some antianxiety medicines after consulting with my primary psychiatrist to manage this anxiety? However, I then would worry about its effectiveness at night.
My Current Medication, as I told is tablet Paxil 12.5 mg and tablet Etizolam 0.5 mg, which I am currently taking at night.
Thank you, doctor.
