Stopping treatment?: It's great that you're feeling better from your depression and PTSD! You mention taking multiple meds and participating in counseling. Are you feeling better *because* of your treatment?Considering stopping any of your medications or counseling is a serious medical decision, and should be undertaken with the collaboration and supervision of your treating doc to avoid negative health consequences.
