Patient Concerns

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatry
Stopping medicines can cause you to have a recurrence of the illness for which treatment was being instituted. Several psychiatric conditions can also worsen during pregnancy or in post partum period. Based on 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. 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.
