Psychiatrist 's  Response
thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
You should not stop or reduce the dose of drugs on your own without consulting psychiatrist.
In many psychiatric illness, long term use of drugs is many times needed.
so you should consult psychiatrist before re-starting ant medicines. as you were better with sertraline, Doctor may restart the same drug again.
Meanwhile you cans tart doing stress management and relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and breathing exercise.

Thanks that you came to HCM
Now let us make things clear.
Time and again it has been proved that medicines alone cannot cure mental conditions.
You need to have change in life style, positive thinking, prayer and meditation.
Also you need to understand life situations and learn to think clear and positive.
Meditation and yoga can streamline body metabolism and thinking process.
Psychotherapy can help you in changing life style.
Consult a psychologist immediately.
Wish you speedy recovery.
