gradually taper the medicines and stop

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern for your daughter.

Quitipin 25 mg is the lowest dose. It is likely given for sleep. She is sleeping well since long so it can be stopped after doing half tablet for 10 days.

Zosert is an anti-depressant drug. It can be stopped in next 3 months gradually as per her treating doctor's instructions.

In general there will be no side effects she will face in future. Do not stop medicines abruptly.

Take care.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
Regards,
Dr.Chintan Solanki.
