Hello doctor,

I have a 15-year-old son who was suffering from depression two months ago but is fine now except for having a few weird thoughts. The only issue currently is that he is not studying. He was suggested the following medicines- Cognium syrup and Shine-25 tablets. I plan to give only Cognium syrup, shall I go ahead? Please recommend the appropriate dosage.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The Shine 25 mg/d is an anti-depressant. You can start from 1/2 a pill at night (one hour before sleeping), if you do not use it then there will be no anti-depressant effect. The Cognium syrup is brain stimulating syrup, start from 1/2 of the recommended dose on the bottle. Give him a month and then if you see no effects then increase the dose to 1 pill of Shine and full dose of Cognium syrup. Lack of interest in studies could be a sign of depression. You may have to put more time and effort into studying with him.
