Our expert says:
Usually, one would not recommend that anyone needs to remain on CIlift or any other antidepressant for 9 years after a single episode of depression, especially not PND. YOu should have been seen by a psychiatrist for re-assessment and advice on the medication ( including supervising your withdrawal from the med.)
The explanation you say you received sounds like nonsense. Testosterone has nothing to do with depression and PND, and does NOT turn into adrenaline. I find it hard to believe that a proper specialist psychiatrist would come up with such a weird and inaccurate explanation, nor that such a specialist would keep you on and AD for 9 years, and not help you come off it far sooner. Only a GP or some other doc lacking full and proper training in psychopharmacology and psychiatry is likely to come up with this.
Its probably best to stay on your current dose of the Cilift until you can see a proper psychiatrist ( and if indeed it was a shrink who came up with this peculiar advice, get a second opinion ASAP from a different psychiatrist ) and re-check the diagnosis, treatment, withdrawal plan, and seek an explanation for the continuing milk production, which is not at all usual
