As I recall both times I was taken off of all my medication. The second time after the ECT the pdoc put me back the antidepressant I was taking.

I do know from other people that it works best when you go back on or stay on antidepressants. I have read that even when you get a good result from the ECT that taking medication after can make the depression stay away. That if you just have ECT the antidepressant effect can where off after a while if you do not continue with antidepressants. This is only what I have read from others several times, it is not any scientific or self-knowledge.

In my particular case it would not have made a difference as the ECT did not have any affect. Nor was the antidepresseant I was taking at the time.
