Its hard at this distance to tell whether a change in meds would be aviseable at this particulat stage --- what is needed is for the prescribing doc to re-assess you and advise on this directly, depending on what he finds. Though some blader / urinary symptoms are possible as AD side-effects, it's unusual for someone to experience these on several difference ADs. What I would recommend would be to consider CBT counselling in addition to the meds, as this helps you learn to cope better and to avoid negative thinking habits
