yes it is necessary for you to continue the acitrom indefinitely till your treating physician decides to withdraw. it cannot be taken during the pregnancy, if you are planning for pregnancy discuss this with the doctor well six months in advance so that he can change to alternative treatment which will not affect you as well as your baby.
