Expert:  Dr. Kaushik replied 2 years ago.

Thanks for the reply..

 

Well, i deally he should be maintained on this regime for atleast 12 months for full recovery and prevention of future relapse of this condition , which may occur if you stop the drug now ..

 

yes the symptoms will return if he stops the drugs at the moment..

 

Usually in the initial phase of treatment like he is right now , fluctuation in mood is often seen , so the crying spells or emotional outbursts will slowly but firmly wane off , so do not get worked up, he is on the right track , but just make sure he completes course of this regime for the period mentioned above so that he remains symptom free without having to face this cndition in the future..

 

I hope this helps..

 

Wish you all the best..
