Everyone is different. The time in treatment varies from patient to patient.

Optimally, a patient will be on the medicine for 10-12 months at a consistent dose, and then begin to taper off the medication at that time. On average, tapering and getting entirely off the medication takes an additional 6-8 months. Some patients need to be on the medication longer, and that is entirely OK. We will work with you to optimize your treatment.
