Do not stop or modify the dosage of psychiatric medications by yourself. Many times doctors review the case and adjust dosage as per requirement. Initially follow up is atleast once a month. Thereafter atleast every two months. Consult your mental health specialist immediately.

Hello..If medications have worked before they will work again. If not, they can be changed or dosages can be optimised. Also non-medication therapy can also be tried. Please consult a professional. Online or offline as per your convenience.
