Our expert says:
It sounds to me as if your treatment so far has been from GPs, rather than from a specialist psychiatrist ? Some GPs tend to use too many drugs, changing them too fast, before they have had a real chance to work. And Eglonyl, Aterax, and Zopax are not antidepressants at all.
Tell your doctor you want to see a good local psychiatrist for a fresh re-assessment and specific advice about treatment. Gosh, if they're charging 650 to 1000 for a first appointment, they're earning a lot more, for a lot less work, than I ever earned in my life ! I'm sure they're not all that expensive ; and one can also explore the possibility of getting referred to an academic psychiatrist at your nearest medical school.
Weaning off isn't necessary at all with some drugs, and needn't be as long as 6 weeks in most cases. I think it would be well worth your while to get the benefit of a good specialist assessment and advice here.
