Based in your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For first episode of anxiety/ depression/ panic, the usual maintenance phase is 6 months of asymptomatic period, after which medicines can be gradually tapered. But treatment may need to continue longer depending on severity and frequency of episodes. Antidepressants are not addictive, the reason the symptoms come back is because there is an endogenous disturbance of neurochemicals and like any other chronic illness, if brain is not able to maintain the chemical balance, symptoms return when medication is stopped. Additional treatment measures include psychotherapy. To take any decision to change medication or stop them, several factors have to be taken in account for which regular follow up with your psychiatrist is important. For second opinion, seek a proper consultation with another psychiatrist and take along your previous prescriptions.
