Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Drugs for Blood Pressure (Eritel / Natrilex SR) and cholesterol (Novastat) will have to taken permanently...
Drug for Depression (Prodep) can be withdrawn after a few months – apparently, this is Reactive Depression and the chances of getting over are excellent...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
