Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 38-year-old female. I have anxiety, stress, breathing difficulty, dizziness, and, loose stools. Also, I am not able to eat. Currently, I am not under any medication. But a few years back, I had a medicine called Typlin C. Kindly help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your symptoms could be related to a panic disorder. For this reason, I would recommend consulting with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Starting Typlin C again or another type of antidepressant (SSRI) may be necessary. I would also recommend checking thyroid hormone levels for possible thyroid gland dysfunction. In the meantime, I recommend avoiding coffee intake and start practicing yoga and meditation. Recreational sports can help too. I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Can you please prescribe equivalent medicine for Typlin C which I can buy in my place that makes comfortable.

Answered by Dr. Aida Abaz Quka


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I would recommend taking Elavil 25 mg (Amitriptyline). It is recommended starting with half a tablet at bedtime for a week and increase after a week to a pill at night. You can increase the dose further after a month. In the meantime, in the first month, as Elavil shows its effects, I would recommend taking Xanax 0.25 mg (Alprazolam) three times daily, to help against anxiety. I hope you will find this answer helpful. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask me again at any time.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
