Depression Meds...WHAT?

Recommended Posts

So I have been on depression meds for most of my life. Ive been on several because they work for a while and then I build up a tolerance and then the dont work. Ive been on Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Prozac, Lexapro,amitriptyline,  and Vibryid (which made me super aggressive) and a few others. I currently take Zoloft and Trazodone to help me sleep. So I am rarely sick so dont go in for check ups very often so they said I had to come in to get meds renewed. They couldn't see me for 2 weeks so I have been off my meds for 2 weeks (fabulous idea, NOT) Anyway I go in to see the DR that prescribed me these meds and he says.. You know, Zoloft was never made to be on long term and we should start tapering you off. I was like, WHAT? I have never heard that and if its true, then why put me on that knowing I have been on antidepressants for ever? Then he says How long are you planning on needing Trazodone (which I have been on for like 2 years)? He says this is also a short term drug. Someone please explain to me if this is true because this is the first I've ever heard of it, and if so, why wouldn't he have mentioned that before? Is this guy a Quack??
