Insomnia / Difficulty Sleeping

Ditulis oleh: pada tanggal Heart Health Consultation

Good morning, doctor. I had been taking antidepressant drugs to help me relax at night and fall asleep.
After drug supplies run out, I came to the Primary Health Care Clinic and I explained about the problems of insomnia and I get amitriptilin 25 mg Alprazolam Atarax 0.5 mg. when I receive the medication, I was afraid that given the wrong medication because I usually consumes generic alprazolam 1 mg every night. Meanwhile, amitripyline only improve my appetite.
After a day I take the drug as directed which are listed, my sleep schedule is still the same and I still have insomnia.
I just fell asleep in the morning. Is it true that every drug has a different suitability to each person?
Do I have to go back to the Primary Health Care Clinic to tell that The best (and in many cases only) time to sign up for health under the Affordable Care Act is during each years open enrollment period. the medicine is not suitable for me? Thank you in advance.

Dear Mr. Ferdinand Sentani
To decide the suitability of a drug, you are encouraged to consult with the doctor who prescribed the drug, because of course that doctor are a person who understands the reason why the drug was given, what to expect, and plan of treatment. Individual responses to the different drugs may vary, so please consult with your doctor.

Hope it helps
