My boyfriend was diagnosed with Anxiety early May 2016. Since then, he has been taking anti-depressants (started with Desvesflaxine, Etizolam etc.) and has also seen a psychologist for a few sessions of CBT. Recently, we have changed our doctor who has now diagnosed him with Depressive Syndrome and has prescribed my boyfriend Paxil (started with 12.5 mg and is now on 25 mg).
But unfortunately, there has been no improvement.
He complains of extreme fatigue, chest pains, tingling sensations, dull vision but flashy lights, dreamlike state, nights being worse than days, sad-dull mood, coordination and concentration issues, lack of interest in activities he used to earlier enjoy, memory loss, sleep problems, he often gets lost in his own thoughts and spaces out, also his rage is getting worse day by day.
He has this phobia that 'he has hit someone from his car' which wasn't there before. He obsesses over things and thoughts too much lately.
What we want to know and understand is, is this just depression, OCD, and anxiety or can it be something else as well?
Do you or anyone you know suffers and experiences similar symptoms?
How long can this take and how long will it take to find the right medicine that works for him?
Most importantly, what are the other ways to treat his condition? We have tried medicines and CBT but nothing is really working out for him.
Please suggest and help as you can. We are very distressed and we are losing hope with every passing day. Do answer the questions and let us know what you think.
