Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Firstly, it is not a good idea to make any changes or alterations to your medication on your own without a proper assessment and advise of a doctor. You have mentioned that you have been on multiple anti-depressants but I'm not sure exactly why so many changes were made.

Since you have already been diagnosed to have MDD and anxiety, and also have other medical problems as well, I would advise you to have a review and re-evaluation by your doctor, before making any further treatment decisions.

Wish you all the best.
