weaning of Leximel Tablets

i have been taking Leximel for depression i have weaned myself off and have not been taking them for the past 2 months, is there any harm in doing this? could you recommend a natural tablet that i can take in its place, i still have anxiety attacks and am still moody and get irritated very quickly.

There is absolutely no such thing as a Natural Tablet, and all advertising claiming anything on sale is Natural is quackery and fraud.
If the Lexamil was no helping you, it was reasonable to come off them. Some people experience unpleasant symptoms if they stop such pills too quickly ( rather than gradually reducing the dose ) but if you're off them there should be no further problems from them.
Probably the most "natural" way of treating anxiety and depression would be CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, a form of counselling provided by good psychologists, which helps you to learn how to avoid the anxiety / depression, and how to deal with it if it does arise. Otherwise, see a psychiatrist rather than a GP, for a fresh assessment and a discussion of treatment options
