Our expert says:
Often what we're suffering from is a combination of two types of matters needing different attention --- one is that there are problems within our lifestyle --- companions, partners, whatever --- which need attention in the form of counselling to sort out our behaviours and attitudes so as to be able to live far more comfortably ; and chemical imbalances within our nervous system, some of which arise spontaneously or mysteriously, and some of which are unhelpful responses to the interpersonal problems ---and these need attention in the form of medications.
You're describing a situation in which medication was helpful but chouldn't complete the necessary job because the other components of the problems were not dealt with. Marriage counselling, for instance, could help both you and your husband, and perhaps medication, though this would become clearer after the other issues were being dealt with. And marriage counselling doesn't necessarily mean just patching things up to try and make a couple stay together, but can also enable them to make a more sensible and reasonable decision about whether or not to part, and if they do so decide, to understand themselves and each other better, so they can part more healthily and with a lesser chance of repeating the same mistakes in the future.
