Okay, I got the answer from my pdoc. Yes, you will continue on your meds to hold off relapse. ECT will probably need to be repeated only once or twice a year. My pdoc has at least one other female patient who is as impossible to treat as I. He says she gets two treatments a year and takes her meds. She is also able to funtion in the mainstream of society. Now THAT'S something I'm really looking forward to!!!!!!!!!!!!
