Depression symptoms. Taking nexito, asked to increase dosage. Side effects of long-term usage of medication?

Hello Doctor I had been advised to take Nexito 5mg some 3 yrs ago since I was suffering from depression , initially my doctor told me to take 5mg for first 6m s months & then to have the dosage increased to 10mg. However, I continued with 5mg since I was feeling better then & feared to take a higher quality & till date continues to have 5mg every night. Lowlessness still continues in my life & am afraid to discontinue having Nexito. Is it harmful to take Nexito for this long Thanks

Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
I think you should have listened to your physician and increased the dose to 10 mg. In addition, you would need psychotherapy as well. Till date, there are no known side effects with long term use of Nexito. You can safely use it without worrying about the side effects.
Hope this helps
