This should have been explained to you by the doc prescribin Cipralex. And 6 months may be a little soon to start. The safest approach is to see again the psychiatrist who made the original diagnosis and prescribed the drug, for an assessment of whether this is the right time to come off the medicine ( if one stops it too soon, there's a real risk of the depression returning ) and then to discuss how mos smoothly to come off it, which depends on several factors which the prescriber ought to know.
