    replace meds with therapy, therapy will give you more chance of a more stable future than meds ever can

    I was on sertraline 50mg for a month, I took myself of it. ( mainly because i lost a stone and a half in 4 weeks) ,I wouldnt advise to do that.. speak to your doctor first. It depends how long you've been taking it. I feel better from stopping it and booked myself in with a therapist, better to start a more natural approach. With medication you have to work it. Therapy helps clear your mind and they will give you advice on how to deal with day to day worries.

    Here are my tips if you want to stop antidepressants you should cut it down slowly do not stop it all of a sudden then have therapy on the side while you are slowly going off your meds 

    Also do coping skills if you feel anxious 

    These are my tips to stopping meds
