Reassess meds with prescribing doctor who knows you best. See your primary care doctor for any possible medical factors that might contribute to anxiety or depression symptoms: check thyroid, vit D, iron, etc. Consider psychotherapy for coping strategies and support. I hope this helps.

and explain there is no improvement. Are you taking the meds consistently as prescribed and at the same time daily? Note your symptoms and call immediately to find out if he/she can adjust your meds to improve your health. Dont wait. Medicine takes some time to start affecting your system. Get educated.
