Acupuncture, strict diet, and routine sleep schedule helped me transition off meds. I still work with a psychologist and a cognitive behavioral therapist weekly, and have access to the pdoc if needed. When things get bad, I get prescribed an herbal formula from the acupuncturist, which is customized to what is going on at the time. It's a lot of work, but the routine helps. Except when it doesn't, like tonight when I'm up at 3 am!!!
