Medication regime which you are talking about is more likely indicative of treatment of psychotic depression having some mixed features. So in this medication needs to be continued long term. May be few years. All a psychiatrist can say is if you stop medication abruptly then subsequent episode is going to be more rapid and severe.

Schizophrenia and depression- You have to be on drugs as long as your psychiatrist advise for it. You should stick to your psychiatrists rescription, dosage and schedule. Antipsychotics are very specific drugs. You should continue or stop them only on doctors advice.

Dear Lybrate user. It is not advisable to stop the medicine you are taking all of a sudden. Instead of curing or managing your problems, it will only aggravate them. If you're not willing to continue or if you want to stop taking it please go to the Doctor Who prescribed it. He/she will gradually taper the dosage and stop it without any unwanted effects, and also replace it some other safer drug that suits you best.

What Is Depression?

What Is Depression?

Please note: Depression is a serious medical condition and can require medical attention. If you suffer from depression, please call your doctor for diagnosis and a treatment plan that works for you.

The first problem with depression is its definition. A feeling or mental state isn’t easily measured or defined. Sure, there’s a clinical definition, but diagnostic criteria can be awfully subjective. Because of this, and because of the pressure for doctors to prescribe expensive drugs, antidepressants are doled out to people who don’t qualify for the diagnosis of major depression. This includes giving pills to people with insomnia, muscle spasms, or really any report of being bummed out.

The DSM-5 (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) lays out the diagnostic criteria for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) like this (more or less): Five (or more) of the following symptoms have to be present for a consecutive 2-week period. At least one of these has to be “depressed mood” or “loss of interest or pleasure”:

  • Depressed mood (i.e., sad, empty, hopeless)
  • Diminished of pleasure in all (or almost all) activities
  • Change in weight more than 5% in one month when not dieting
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia nearly every day
  • Psychomotor changes (slowed down or sped up) – must be observed by others
  • Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day
  • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt nearly every day
  • Diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness, nearly every day
  • Recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, or suicidal attempts
  • Again, while it’s likely that doctors are overprescribing antidepressants, it’s important that if you’re suffering from any of the above criteria, you call your doctor to get some help!
