Our expert says:
Medication might still be the best way to handle some of your problems ( combined with skilled counselling / therapy such as CBT --- but not a cocktail of meds like you list here. Any one of the antidepressants you list might be helpful, but only taken in the right doses, at the rights times, and for a month or more to assess the extent of possible benefits, not on the chop and change routine some naive doctors or patients tend to use. And Ativan is NEVER ever beneficial in Depression, and can be hard to stop, so other meds would be more suitable if you need an occasional rescue dose of a sedative.
And you may well be helped more by concentrating on CBT / psychotherapy rather than medication. It'd probably be best to see a good local psychiatrist for a re-assessment and advice on how to move off the meds for a while, a "drug holiday" to discover how you are underneath all those chemicals, and to start vigorous psychotherapy instead.
