A question about refractory OCD, GAD and MDD

I have MDD, GAD, OCD and ASD. I have tried Zoloft, Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, clomipramine, Remeron, Cymbalta, Pristiq, Seroquel, Abilify, Zyprexa, Risperdal, lithium, Depakine, Klonopin, Ativan, Xanax, Lexotan, Inderal and Lyrica. Please see my current prescription below:

1. Fluoxetine 80mg daily
2. Mirtazapine 45mg at bedtime
3. Aripiprazole 30mg daily
4. Olanzapine 15mg nocte
5. Clonazepam 0.5mg tds prn
6. Lorazepam 0.5mg tds prn
7. Pregabalin 250mg om and 250mg nocte
8. Valproate sodium CR 200mg nocte
9. Promethazine 100mg nocte prn 
10. Lithium carbonate CR 400mg nocte

After trying so many medications, my OCD, anxiety and depression still make me dysfunctional. I can't resume my university studies or leave my home alone. I see my psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, counselor and social worker regularly. My psychiatrist said she would not recommend ECT. I tried rTMS and dTMS but they don't work. Esketamine and MAOIs are not available. What can be done to bring my OCD, anxiety and depression under control?
Dear Sam,

Thank you for your questions. Sorry to hear that you have been suffering from a range of different mental health issues for a period of time and the symptoms have not been well-controlled. Unfortunately I am unable to answer your questions without doing an assessment in view of your long and complicated history. I would recommend that you need to speak with your psychiatrist again regarding your concerns.

Dr. Robyn Ho
