I really need advice on my situation, ASAP.

I'm in college, and the only psychiatrist available to me is unavailable to meet with me until March 30. My general physician has been out for the weekend.

I was on Prozac for 6 years for anxiety/PMDD and it literally changed my life. This December it "pooped" out, so my doctor put me on Zoloft 50mg. 2 weeks ago, she raised it to 100mg, because the anxiety was still out of control and I have been extremely depressed about it. I've also been experiencing horrible feelings of depersonalization (the worst symptom of all), that half the time I feel like my mind is not connected to my body and I don't know who I am. I'm terrified I'm going to have to drop out of school, because I'm going crazy. I'm pretty much hysterical every single day.

Anyway, I've been trying to do research on medications and it seems like Lexapro might be a better switch. Do you think it is more harmful to switch at this point? Do you think a medication change is unnecessary? I've been seeing a counselor on campus as well, with little success. I'm so completely desperate. I'm meditating daily, doing yoga, taking fish oil. I was prescribed Xanax .5 in Dec, but I'm very reluctant to take it more than twice a week, due to dependency/tolerence/etc. I'm looking for any advice on my situation as possible! I'm so scared and I can't live like this.

Thank you.
