Nexito plus is combination of escitalopram 5mg and clonazepam 0.5mg. For generalized anxiety SSRI ( in this case escitalopram) is used for prolonged period but bezodiazepine ( clonazepam) is usually disconnected after acute crisis is over. You better follow your treating psychtrist on scheduled time

Hi Welcome to practo. The treatment for generalised anxiety disorder is continued for a year. Usually the SSRI alone are required for such long period and clonazepam is taken only when required basis. So, depending upon the response and side effects drug doses ca be adjusted and once you are symptom free, then same dose is to be continue.  After a year or so , doses can be reduced slowly and then can be stopped. Thanks and regards
