Hello doctor,

Recently I am suffering from lack of sleep and anxiety, last night I could not sleep at all because of restlessness and from a couple of days. I have been sleeping less for like two to three hours in the night. I am also suffering from anxiety, where I sweat a lot and become restless. Please, advice some medicine that I can use temporarily to complete my six to eight hours of sleep.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Feelings and symptoms like palpitations, getting a heart attack, difficulty breathing, digestive concerns, and sleep problems can be a part of heart-related issues or anxiety. It is essential to have some physical examinations before taking medicines. Also, first time medicine can be prescribed after a physical exam. At first, you must need to get proper assessment identifying the cause of this anxiousness, whether it is work-related or some personal issue. It can be done by analyzing thought processes when you are having such symptoms.

After analyzing thoughts, cognitive behavior therapy thought channelization, and restructuring is quite helpful. Besides, to make yourself relax you can do the following,

1. Deep breathing excercises.

2. Walk for at least 30 minutes per day.

3. Workout if possible to release toxins out of your body.

4. Reduce smoking (if you do).

5. Avoid junk and spicy food, soft drinks.

6. Increase water intake.

7. Thought diary or journaling would be also helpful for analyzing and restructuring of thoughts (underlying cause) of the problem.

You can also have an appointment with the counselor to help you in assessing and provide you with individualized therapy as per requirement.
