Welcome to XXXXXXX

It is an antidepressant drug which with prolong use develops dependence. abrupt stoppage may cause withdrawal symptoms therefore you can stop it by tapering the dose after being discussed with your doctor or you can use an alternate drug in the same group or from other groups as an antidepressant.
