The trouble is that neither espiride nor any other drug can help much, and one doesn't want any such intervention to reduce your vigilance and care and protectiveness. Espiride could possible cause a degree of anxiousness. It's an odd drug, widely used by some SA docs, especially GPs, though there's not much evidence that its effective for the wide range of situations in which they use it, and it isn[t used this way in most other countries.
