Our expert says:
Usually, if one takes the right antidepressant for you, and it hlps you to lift the depression, and the depression is truly over, then gradually lowering the dose of the AD will leave you as you are. Signs of a returning depression suggest that the depression is not yet over, and maybe a different AD might be more useful. Discuss this with your doc, and if you have ben treated so far by a GP, ask to see a psychiatrist for a full re-assessment and a good discussion of treatment options.
