Our expert says:
The aunt is of course really foolish, as mixing any presription drugs with booze is ALWAYS foolish. Sounds like your wife saw a GP, when she really needs to see a psychiatrist, as specialist help is needed in a complicated depression, especially as she may be a danger to herself or the children. If she's still this unwell after 4 years on Nuzak, it's obviously not the right treatment for her.
It would be wise to see her doc and discuss her lack of progress and the serious situation. If he is a GP, ask him to arrange for her to see a psychiatrist specialist - no GP should hold on to a complex severe depresion which is not improving, for so long, without making a proper referral for specialist advice. By all means examine your legal rights, including how best to proect the kids in the event of a separation.
