Feeling Anxious, Depressed And Insomnia?
I want to ask … I used to have a nervous breakdown at school and was taken to the Magelang Hospital and was hospitalized because I felt confused and never lost my memory … said a specialist doctor or psychologist in Magelang. continued control then now lately feeling anxious, depressed and lack of sleep. Is it true that neurological disease is a long cure? I have stopped taking the medicine for a long time and I don’t tell the doctor if I want to stop controlling and take a doctor’s prescription, how?
Good morning, thanks for the question
The provision of drugs in cases of anxiety disorders and depression is very helpful in reducing complaints and improving the quality of life of sufferers, as well as patients will need other psychotherapy. Drugs in these conditions are generally indeed shown as long-term treatment because to achieve the therapeutic effect requires a certain period of time. The duration of treatment should be based on the recommendations of the psychiatric institution so that the patient cannot stop it himself. When the patient's condition has improved a lot, the doctor will slowly reduce the dose of the drug to avoid the side effects of sudden stopping the drug which can be very detrimental. In other conditions drugs can still be given but in small doses as maintenance doses. If you feel the complaint back now, it is likely indeed caused by inappropriate drug therapy. Our advice is to consult your current condition again with a psychiatric specialist. Obey the rules of taking drugs that doctors give for the achievement of therapeutic goals. Ask for support from family and loved ones during this therapy so that you will be more motivated to undergo treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
