Medicines can be tapered,under a Psychiatrist's supervision.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

I assume you must be on these medicines for a reason.What's your clinical diagnosis for which you were given these medicines?
Anyway,these medicines can be gradually tapered down and stopped,but it should be done under a psychiatrist's supervision.

To be specific for your query,if you don't have a specific diagnosis/disease,start doing regular meditation/yoga exercises as these can help patients to reduce the need of medicines for mental illness.

If you have some further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
