Just showing support as I've been similar myself whilst trying to find the right medication for me.
Im sure the medical professionals have no concept of the torture we go through sometimes.
I know it is not much help but try to have plenty fluids ( water) and I hope you get sorted soon.
It is always really hard changing medication especially when they're meant to help but they don't seem to be in the meantime.
I really hope that you start seeing improvements soon and that you can come back to this forum with some good news. Remember its always here to vent to.
Best wishes x

Im in the process now of a change in drug and can feel your pain.
There are still many AD options out there.
I was on venlafaxine and the side effects were crippling. A psychiatrist said you should take with a benzo for 2-3 weeks.
You could try duloxetine a more benign SNRI
There is also mirtazapine which often works when nothing else does.
Then the old tricyclics like lofepramine and tofranil.
Finally the oldest MAOI which may have some modern versions.
Tbh I dont understand theae two week waiting periods. Its pretty safe to start a new med straight after stopping another, or 2 days maximum.
Youll be ok, just hang on in there. You have a supportive wife which is fantastic.
