Discuss with doctor: Severe anxiety can cause undue suffering and be extremely debilitating. Your despair is certainly understandable. However, the "resistance" that you are currently experiencing may be due to various factors other than lack of efficacy. Recommend seeing your doctor ASAP for a comprehensive evaluation and discussing treatment options depending on findings. Hope this is helpful. All the best.
