Suggest remedies for anxiety
Hello, and thanks for your question.
I'm sorry you're going through so much right now. I think I can help. Here are my thoughts.
Trying a different antidepressant would be one approach -- escitalopram or venlafaxine are a couple you haven't tried that come to mind. Often trying a different antidepressant means you will not have the same adverse effects as others, so it could be worth a shot.
Another option is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This is highly, highly effective for anxiety. It targets automatic negative or body-focused thoughts and redirects them into something more useful and positive. If you don't have a CBT therapist in your area, I do offer text-based CBT on this website via my direct private link:

In my experience, the antidepressant classes LEAST likely to cause this effect are the SSRIs and SNRIs. Of the SSRIs, I would first try either escitalopram or fluoxetine. If you want to go with an SNRI, I would first try venlafaxine. These are all similar and very well tolerated in terms of side effects. Unfortunately with antidepressants, it is a bit of trial-and-error game. I usually wait at least two weeks when starting an antidepressant, because most side effects will go away by then. If you are still having side effects after two weeks, I would consider switching. It make take one try or it may take many tries, but eventually you will find one that works for you.
