Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Following points that can be considered:
1. Ensuring proper compliance (skipping doses and discontinuing medication once in a while does not help)
2. Second opinion for review of diagnosis (all good doctors welcome second opinion in difficult cases who are not responding to treatment)
3. Addition of non pharmacological methods of treatment (like cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder)
4. Addressing on going stressors which may be contributing to the illness
5. Good family support and occupational rehabilitation always helps
