Brief Answer:
Based on clinical findings

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

The dosages are reduced based on the clinical findings and there is no set number of years one has to be kept on sizodon. If you are symptom free then your doctor might reduce the tablet over 6-8 months. However I would like to add here than some of my patients are on minimal dose of Sizodon as maintenance for several years.


I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

Regards
