Any medication you stop will give you a rebound effect. For instance, stopping lithium often gives people exaggerated mood swings. I had rebound psychosis from stopping an AP too qucik - the funny part is that I never had psychosis to begin with.

You are on too many meds, but you need to determine which meds are not helping much and then stop them *slowly*. I don't mean cut in half for a week then stop. I mean stop over the course of 3 months, 6 months perhaps.
