Psychiatry
In brief: Stay the course
The goal in treating depression is to return to normal.
You don't want to just be better, you want to be well. Antidepressants should be continued for at least 9 months after all symptoms have resolved. The decision to continue or not continue antidepressants should then be discussed with your doctor.
