Hi doctor,

I am a 40-year-old male who developed left knee pain four years ago. I visited a doctor for the same and underwent an MRI of my left leg and hip joint. But the reports were normal. So, the doctor said the pain was due to a psychological problem. So, he referred me to a psychiatrist, and I have been under treatment for the past four years. I am taking tablets D-Veniz 50 and Zolcalm 50 mg, but my BP shot up to 180/120 mmHg last month. However, I got admitted, and ECG, 2D echocardiogram, and angiography were done. But all reports were normal now. So, the cardiologist suggested taking these tablets, Rivotril 50, Telsar beta, and Ecosprin. What is happening to me?

Please give your opinion.



Welcome to

I went through your query and understood your concern.

You have had depression in the past, and you are on antidepressants. In addition, you are on tablet D-Veniz 50 mg, which has hypertension as one of the side effects of long-term usage. Or you may have developed hypertension due to chronic stressful life. Also, you are taking an antihypertensive (Telsar beta) and blood thinner (Ecosprin) suggested by your cardiologist.

I am not able to get information about the tablet Rivotril 50. If possible, kindly tell me its generic name so I can tell you more about it.

I hope you got your answer.

Please let me know if you need help.

Thank you.
