As far as I know, you can't change the direction of the axes directly but you can get around this by using
the Ticks option. Suppose for example that you want to plot Exp[x] with the y-axis going from high to low,
then you could do something like

Plot[-Exp[x], {x, 1, 5}, Ticks -> {Automatic,
   With[{range == Range[0, -Round[Exp[5]], -20]},
    Transpose[{range, -range}]]}]
