I hacve no idea why so many doctors seem to have ben persuaded to use Rivotril, as there's no good evidence I have yet seen for its use in so many people with so many different problems, compared to other drugs. However. But many docs love to use the latest and most expensive alternatives, which this combination seems o be. Sorry that the psychologists didn't work out so far --- I don't see their job as informing you, so your knowledge of the condition should be largely irrelevant --- what matters is using basic CBT principles to enable you to better control the symptoms. It can specifically focus on the situations in which these anxieties arise, the triggers that currently set off the bad feelings, and enable you to unlearn those connections, and re-learn an associartion between driving / the road, and feeling relaxed and confident. And, as you imply, they should be helping you both to minimise the depression and anxiety and to live more confidently WITH such symptoms as remain.
