Hi Ntefo
The adco-alzam is a short-acting medication, and will only help for a few hours. It is also habit-forming, which means that your body will get used to the medication, and it will not work anymore, and you will need more and more alzam to have the same effect. This is very dangerous. Your doctor can consider prescribing anti-anxiety medication that is safer to use over a longer period of time. The other symptoms that you mentioned sounds like you might be getting sick, so please have yourself checked, and if you think you might have COVID, then go to one of the testing stations. Good luck and stay safe.
