Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
D Veniz is not a sleeping pill. It is an antidepressant. Antidepressants are non addictive but frequent follow up with your psychiatrist is mandatory. 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.
