Yes, there won't be any withdrawal effects. Why did you stop?

Are you supposed to be on escitalopram (Lexapro) or duloxetine (Cymbalta)?

Long-term antidepressants are a better bet than benzodiazepines (BZDs) as doctors are becoming increasingly reluctant to prescribe BZDs which means you may not be able to get a prescription in the future. If you don't want to take meds then the cognitive/behavioural/mindfulness therapies are at least as effective.
