How can depression and anxiety be cured ?

I think I may be suffering from adult ADD along with OCD and depression , but the doctors I have seen have yet to correctly diagnose me. They continue to prescribe one antidepressant after another, and none of them work. All I have gained from these meds are weight, more anxiety , and terrible physical side effects. I am still depressed, still performing stupid rituals and still unable to concentrate, focus and complete projects. Please help me get the correct diagnosis.

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Hi,
From your history it seems that you have not consulted Psychiatrist.To get correct diagnosis and proper treatment you should go to Psychiatrist and afterward to psychologist for counseling
Self medications or going on changing the medicines by the doctors other than specialist is always to be avoided.
You will definitely be alright with correct diagnosis and proper treatment.
O K AND BYE..

i recently changed prescription medicine from Paxil 30 mg to Effexor (not sure of spelling) 37.5 mg. My dr. advised that it was ok to just make the switch. Stop paxil one day and start efexor the next. It has been almost a month now and I have become angry, no tolerance, and depressed all of the time. Is this normal and will it take more than one month to begin to take effect?
