In brief: Lustral/Zoloft

The generic name of this med is sertraline - a more familiar name this side of the "pond" is zoloft.
The answer to your question is, it depends! is there a history of pre-natal depression? Were you ever suicidal? Is the current dose working? How long have prior depressions lasted? All of these are critical questions to answer. Most important, current and continued wellness for you is key!

In brief: Varies

Sertraline is one of the first line treatments of depression.
Continuing treatment of depression for the full duration that your doctor recommended maximizes chances of success and minimize chances of recurrence, so follow what your doctor suggested he knows you best.
