Am a cancer patient since 1996. On 2012 I had a serious attack of hodkins lymphoma in my body which made me weaker and a depression patient. So I had lithosun 400mg and serta 50 at that time. After a while I consulted my doctor and he told me to continue it.Is it okay to take these tablets continuously?
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
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. 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.
