Work toward other: Methods to achieve and maintain a good BMI can be challenging, but you can find ones that are way, way healthier than a sedative and SSRI. If your IBS is better and you do not suffer moderate-severe depression and severe anxiety or insomnia - you don't need powerful, potentially dangerous drugs. Don't stop abruptly, but work w/ a provider to wean and find healthy ways to deal w/ weight. You can!
