Brief Answer:
mixed anxiety depression, drug changes can be discussed

Detailed Answer:
Dear,
Welcome to HCM
Considering your current complaints and past queries, the condition of mixed anxiety depression appears likely.
Your compliant of this is the post anxiety sequale that is suggestive of element of shame related with anxiety. Again it is suggestive of depression.
Considering the past medical history,
I Suggest replacement of zolfot with fluoxetine once a day can be considered by your treating psychiatrist as it is known to be effective in anxiety and depression. propranolol and adequate cover of benzodiazepines can be added to manage the anxiety and sleep related issues.
A session of cognitive behavioural therapy from an expert can be useful.
I would suggest you to discuss the issue of changing or addition of drug with your treating psychiatrist.
However do not discontinue of change medication on own, it all has to be under the guidance and advice of your treating doctor.

kindly revert back for further suggestions.

Dr Pankaj Borade
