Just really be careful when coming off the meds. I'm actually doing the same thing right now - not because of a recommendation by anyone but because of my own lack of clarity on what is working and what is not. My pdoc is, of course, working with me on this and my therapist is keeping her eye on things as well.

But I agree that the medication is your pdoc's call. I'm sure that there's always a possibility of a psychological dependence on a medication (hence the placebo effect) but we all know that there is definitely hard evidence that proves the effectiveness of these drugs. That said, it does become difficult to determine sometimes for me whether a problem I'm having is med-related or depression-related. So a med vacation might (hopefully) turn out to be a good thing.

Is there any way your T and your pdoc can actually talk instead of exchanging voice mails? Perhaps there could be a conference call between the two during one of your sessions? That way there might be a meeting of the minds on your treatment plans.

Follow your instincts on this one.

Take care.
