Yes, antidepressants cannot be stopped 'cold turkey'. Antidepressants should be stopped only under medical supervision. They need to be tapered off. 10 mg while it is a low dose, still needed to be tapered off gradually.
However, since you have stopped it, you need not think about taking it up again. You need to be under careful supervision now after stopping these drugs. You need to work closely with your doctor for his advise during the stopping period. He may give alternative drugs for the symptoms you are having without restarting you on antidepressants.
It would be best if you went for a second opinion if the present doctor is not proving helpful in this.. Check up this link for some guides to stopping antidepressants: http://www.antidepressantsfacts.com/taper.htm
