I've not tried Trazodone. I don't feel particularly anxious.

I've been on antidepressant medication six times in the past. Looking back, there seems to be a pattern:

1. I reach a low point where I decide to go on medication.
2. Over time, I get better while on the medication.
3. I eventually decide to stop using the medication, feeling that I don't need it.
4. Go to 1.

Comparing my functioning on medication vs off medication over a period of many years, I can say that I've generally functioned better on medication than off.

Despite this, I'm considering stopping the Fluanxol at least, possibly the Zoloft too, and staying just on the Strattera, and maybe increasing its dose.
