Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to Health Care Magic

First of all I would like to advise you that please be strong and be positive towards life. You have a lot of problems but only your determination will help in fast recovery.
You are taking medicines for depression, and you have not mentioned them but on medicines you are having crying spells, poor sleep etc. So I would like to advise you to visit your psychiatrist again regarding dose adjustments. Depression is a recurring episodic illness and long term treatment is advised in cases of depression. Medicines like Benzodiazepiens as Clonazepam will help to relieve anxiety and stress. Short term use of medicines like Zolpidem will help to induce sleep for some time.
You have continuous stress from your husband, I will advise you to talk with him regarding your problem. Or at least make him agree to go to Psychiatrist along with you. A proper counseling will help both of you.
