Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Feliz S contain escitalopram and it is not an addictive medicine. It is used in several psychological problems like anxiety, depression and somatization etc. Dose vary according to symptoms and patient profile.

In your case you are using it for anxiety and nervousness. Anxiety is a chronic illness and may recur any point of time in life. In recurrent anxiety disorder treatment may be needed lifelong.

Your current symptoms are not appear to withdrawal of feliz s rather than it appear that symptoms of your psychological problem is reappearing.

In my view it is better to continue Feliz S as you are having good relief with it.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
