Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Forte is a combination medication which contains Escitalopram (an SSRI anti-depressant) and Clonazepam
sedative). So, this medication is effective in treating depression
as well as sleep problems.
The duration of treatment for depression depends on a variety of factors like severity of the illness, level of improvement, whether there were any previous episodes, etc. Benzodiazepine sedatives are to be used for a short term only due to the risk of habituation. So, please discuss with your treating psychiatrist
regading the further course of action.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
