First you should get it diagnosed as depression by psychological testing done by a psychologist. If the report confirms medicines prescribed by the psychiatrist will keep symptoms controlled. In case test report shows it is only depression like symptoms- no amount of medicines will work. I. E. If the problem is psychological it will be cured only by psychotherapy done by a psychologist.
It is not good continue medicine. It leads side effects. Better to come out from medicine. For depression psychological counselling will helps very much. I think you never attend for counselling. Strong counselling sessions are required. Use the medicine whenever you feel normal then leave it. It is best as soon as possible you should come out from the medicine. Years together you use your mind addicted to medicine. Suppose in future you cannot sleep properly without medicine. It is always better to come out from the medicine. Better to come out from yourself. Share the internal feelings and depressive thoughts to your close friends and family members. Better to change yourself. Control your depressive thoughts. If not possible yourself take the help of psychologist. Do not depend on medicine. Must and should conditions only we go to medicine. Better to come out yourself from this stage. It is always best. Ok best of luck.
