In brief: Possibly

If the depression is strictly in the winter and no other types of depression coexists it is possible to stop meds safely.
Time will tell if it works. Sometimes seasonal depression turns into major depression and it is not as likely that antidepressants can be stopped without regression into depression under those circumstances.
