Our expert says:
YOu surely need to discuss all this with your psychiatrist ( if you nhave been treated by a GP so far, insist on seeing a psychiatrist ), If you are going to respond well to an antidepressant, this will show itself within 2 to 4 weeks at most. And if you are not responding to this, there needs to be a re-assessment and either a dose adjustment or a switch to a diferent AD. You seem to be describing an ongoing anxiety disorder and Depression, needing proper treatment. If the shrink you saw was for some or other reason unhelpful --- persist, and see another for a second opinion. Also explore the availability of CBT counselling as well as AD meds. This can and should be better, so do continue to pursue this course, and find the treatment that suits you best, and relieves the anxiety and depression
