Is there any chances of depression coming back once I stop taking medication for OCPD ?

I have been diagnoist that I had (OCPD), and I have been taken cipram (20) from 2001 until now. I was able to stop it for nine months but the depression comes back. however, I believe that I can live without even though my main problem is depression. I am now taking (30mg) one day and the other day (20mg) and I am planing to decrease it slowly until I stop it, but I am afraid that depression will come back. please what is your advice. thank you

Welcome to HCm,
Never go for self medication.
Ask your psychiatrist and after examination if he thinks proper he may reduce the dose or may change some mild medicine,
Changing the dose by your self may increase your depression or worsen the condition.
Ok and bye.
