Good evening. I've been trying different medication for my mixed depressive anxiety disorder throughout the years and combining it with CBT therapy . None of the antidepressants seem to work and it's quite exhausting . I have been on sertaline, paroxetine, duloxetine and venlafaxine. Do you think I should keep trying others ?

No. I would seek a second opinion. Try a Functional (or Integrative) Medical practitioner who may look at issues in your general well being and health alongside "pure psychiatric" ones. Also consider alternative psychotherapeutic approaches other than CBT.
