I've been prescribed this but haven't been brave enough to take it. Is it helping you do you think? Dr didn't tell me to make repeat appointment either but it might be worth just checking in with your Dr as it's been a year.
If you feel like you need a check up or a change in medication then book yourself in. Ime dr seem to be v happy to dish these out. I've been on and off them for years but I've never been able to go a year with no check up. 6 months max.
My dr prescribed these for PMs. Not only did it get rid of the pms, but I am so much more confident and relaxed! Genuinely feel more amazing than I ever have. (I wasn't depressed before, but could be a bit hard on myself and stressy) It's been 18 months, and I've not been back to the dr as I'm worried she'll take them off me... I want to take them forever!
I've been on these twice for depression. Drs have always monitored closely initially then insisted on 6 monthly reviews. Was on it about 18 months each time and stopped 6 months after it reached full effect each time as recommended. GPs the one you should be asking as PP said.
