taking medicine citas plus,suffered depression since 1 years,not control yet,kindly advice .
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Escitalopram is a good antidepressant but the dose range is If there is no response with maximum dose for 6 weeks, medicine are changed. It is necessary to follow with a psychiatrist as a general physician may not be experienced enough in treating depression. The combination drugs like cita plus also have clonazepam which shouldn't be taken regularly for too long. I recommend you see a psychiatrist in your vicinity and go for regular follow ups.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
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 monitor any potential side effects and 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.
