How often do you think remission can be maintained after discontinuation? Isn't it typical for symptoms to begin setting back in quickly after a med is withdrawn? Do you think maintainence is a better option? curious.

Several studies have shown that the rate of relapse is higher for those people who discontinue their medication abruptly when compared to those who taper gradually.
