Nothing is working for my sister, very afraid!!!!

My beloved sister has severe social phobia, OCD and depression.
She tried many SSRI AND SNRI, BENZOS, GABAPENTIN..... nothing worked!!!!!
P.S: MAOIS are not available in my country.
We are very afraid and very sad, worst days of our lives, don't know what to do anymore....
They told us to try CBT, we saw 3 psychologists but they didn't know CBT well, she tried exercise but its effet is limited, breathing techniques... Useless.
Seriously we are on the rope....
Any idea 😞?

breathing exercises work for managing anxiety. CBT and also mindfulness techniques like meditation can help. it all takes a lot of time.
