Regarding the length of time to be on medications: Since your history of depression and anxiety is a long one, yet at the same time has never been really relieved by any medications until recently, it would be premature to say whether you should be on medications for life. In addition, from my last post, remember I said I thought you should do the EMDR and then see what, if any, symptoms you are left with. I don't want to hang out a carrot that you can't reach, but a good portion of my patients have been able to stop their medications without recurrence of anxiety or depression after EMDR. Remember that "a good portion" doesn't mean "everybody" and some folks just have a chemical imbalance that needs correcting. Even so, some of those patients have been able to get rid of one or more medications (for sleep and nightmares and anxiety and flashbacks and hallucinations, etc) and just remain on an antidepressant for a (probably) inherited illness. That is a tremendous difference. For you, just on one or two meds, we will just have to wait and see. Onward, now!!
