You need a good re-assessment by a good and up-to-date psychiatrist, and a discussion of the full range of treatment options. Viibryd ( what a ridiculous name ! ) not yet available in SA, seems to be both like many other ASSRI ADs already available, but with a new wrinkle which may or may not prove useful in practice. But there are other recent developments. such as Agomelatine ( Valdoxane ), recently launched here, which seems promising - works in a manner distinctly unlike the other ADs available, and seems N OT to cause weight gain or the sexual side-effects that were quite common on many of the other Ads. There's no need to wait for Viibry, especially as the ridiculous blunders and delays at the MCC which has to register new drugs, are currently delaying many potentially useful meds unnecessarily long, so the length of waiting time may be hard to predict.
Also, remember there is excellent scientific evidence that CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ), a talking therapy, is usually highly effective i treating Anxiety and relatred conditions
