While such comparisons are suspect, it turns out kicking antidepressants is extremely difficult, especially for women.

Also, they are overprescribed (especially for women), and long-term use is becoming more and more common (especially for women), and "no real exit strategy exists" (for women and everyone else).

And long-term studies of long-term SSRI use still do not exist.
