I think you need to visit your doctor as soon as possible and explain how you feel. Possibly these drugs you're on are starting to work or maybe they need adjusting to suit you.
Explain to the doctor how you feel, show him/her this question if that's easier. Hopefully, they can help you adjust.
Ask the doctor about talking therapies too, at least you could off-load your feelings and worries onto someone who understands and can help you.
I hope this helps, if you feel you need someone to talk to, you can always try the Advicenators site. Take care of yourself, best wishes X.

I'm not a psychiatric professional, but I have so many psychological disorders that I may as well be one!

To me, what you're saying just screams OCD. OCD isn't all about washing your hands or touching things a certain number of times. Sometimes, you're like me and can't do something unless you do it perfectly, or can't focus unless your surroundings are organized.

You're already diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. OCD is just another one. Things cause you anxiety that shouldn't, like not being able to remember something meaningless.

The good news is that you're already on the medication that most doctors would prescribe for OCD. The biggest part of treating OCD, though, is therapy, just like with any anxiety disorder. You've got to learn some skills for coping with stress and hopefully reducing it. If you're already seeing someone for your depression and anxiety, that's great! Let them know about the symptoms you're experiencing and they'll likely come to the same conclusion I have.

The isolation is likely a symptom of your depression. If you've only started on your meds recently, they take a while to start working. Sometimes up to a few months. If you've been on them for a long time, it may be time for a readjustment.

The drugs could be messing with balance of chemicals in your brain, if you started taking them recently it takes a while for your body to adjust to it. If it keeps up contact your doctor asap.
