You must speak to a medical professional, we can't give you any advice regarding medications. Anti-depressants and psychiatric drugs can take time to work, there aren't instant cure pills. With all the meds you are taking, call your doctor or at least speak to your pharmacist.

Actually this is not a personal oppinion. Mis-diagnosos of a patients mental illness is not at all uncommon. The treatment of any mental illness is an art, NOT a direct science.
Different people react differently to many different types of psycotropic medications. Yes, antidepressants take time to work. Live by the 6 week rule. If in 6 weeks a medication is not working for you then you need to advide your doctor that he or she may bo on the wrong track regarding your illness and medication.
For example: I no longer respond to Zoloft (Sertraline) I once did to a degree, but this faded in in effectivness and perhaps the same is true of you.
My advice is to find a psychiatrist that is an absolute expert in the treatment of this illness. One with much experience that can listen and understand perhaps you need augmentation or a med change that fit your symptoms better.
Not all doctors know everything about mental illness. This is a myth that must be dispelled. It take an absolute expert in the cutting edge of treatment for this illness to get a true diagnosis and proper treatment.
