How to manage anxiety?

Question: I am a 46 years old male suffering from hypothyroidism and taking Eltroxin (100 mcg) and Telmisartan (80 mg) for the last one year. I have some anxiety problems. Can I take Amixide H for anxiety as no other medicine like melzap or alprazolam suits me? Due to anxiety, my blood pressure always becomes elevated.

  • Answer:Anxiety is a very natural emotional state but when it goes beyond a level that starts interfering with day to day functioning, it does become a problem. Anxiety can be contributed to by many factors apart from it being a maladaptive trait. For e.g., certain people may be anxious in many situations, or it may be restricted to specific situations / places / events; can be contributed to by physical health issues; and can even be enhanced by use of drugs, alcohol, smoking, having coffee etc.

    Thus, I would think it is be important to know about the kind, frequency of anxiety, as well as factors associated with it.

    I also think you would benefit from a complete cardiological check up given the history of hypertension and also your age.
