Tracy, as a rule of thumb we feel that it is best to stay on the drugs for 6 months as then the body accepts the new levels of serotonin and when you stop taking it, you won’t become depressed again.
If you want to wean yourself of the Cipramil® (an excellent drug, by the way) you should do so slowly. You can take half a tablet a day for a week or two and then take it every second day for another week or so. After that you just stop it and should experience no side effects. Good luck.
