Great that you're feeling much better. I hope you manage to beat things in the way that you want, but you shouldn't feel less of a person if you do need medication. After all, if you were diabetic (for example) you would take insulin if you needed it. Just because this is a condition of the mind, doesn't make it any less deserving of treatment to rectify it.
There is also the point of being on the right tablets for you. Everyone is different, & if you are feeling 'drugged up' after...say around 6 months, that suggests to me that they may not be the ones for you.
Anyway, I hope you manage without them at all. As long as you beat it, it doesn't really matter what method you use
