I have been taking anti-depressants of one sort or another for about 10 years. Lately with lots of issues resolved through therapy, a regular yoga practice and beginning a regular meditation practice, I am tired of the side effects and feeling strong and good. Just came from meds doc. We agreed that the middle of October I am going to take 2 weeks to taper off my anti-depressant and continue to take the small dose of anti-anxiety drug I take. The reason we are waiting so long is that DH and I are going on a 3 week trip next Monday (out of the country) and then 5 days after we get back, my DS comes back for 2 weeks of visiting before she goes back home to Panama. Middle of October looks good and I have an appointment about 5 days after I should be weaned off. One of the best pieces of news, is that according to doc, my anti-depressant is one of the easiest to wean off.
