Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I can find that you have already tried all important and effective medications with no good results

So I would like to know how long have you been using these medications? How each one of them tapered and the reason for switching?

I can certainly help you if I get to know the reason why it was being tried with all these medications as they have to be continued for certain period to get effective relief.

Can I also get some more information about your symptoms and diagnosis?

Please provide these necessary details so that I can guide you specifically.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
