I have severe depression ADD and severe GAD, this seems to do nothing for my anxiety except take the edge off. I am also taking Wellbutrin SR and Concerta (36mg).
Vistaril - Is 400mg/day of Hydroxyzine a little excessive?

Yeah its a bit excessive. the dose should be like 50 mg 4 times a day. You probably need something better then an antihistamine for your anxiety.
Have you tried other antidepressants besides what you're taking for depression and anxiety? Wellbutrin causes some folks to feel nervous and anxious so it may not be a good one for you. Also have you ever tried Buspar for your anxiety? It isn't a benzo so your good there, and its not addicting, but you must take the buspar daily like you do your other meds for it to help your anxiety.
Maybe Sinequan/Doxepin is an antidepressant U could consider trying as well as Prozac That's what I'm taking now! The medications that's been suggested above didn't work well for me,but then again We r all different. I'd be in the nut house if I had continue taking Buspar and or Wellbutrin. I was so tide-up in knocks n running over time n wide awake. My body felt anxious & my mind was racing n having conversation was difficult. But again it's different for each of Us! Consider giving "Doxepin" and or Prozac a try? I hate going through the "trial & error" time, it's not a fun ride at all n I don't think any of Us Like it. Just remember you're not alone! Let Us know how it turns out for U ?
Your doctor is on point trying to steer you clear of benzos. Regardless of 6 years substance abuse free... benzos could trigger a relapse or worse. I had 7 years sober, my sons father died active duty. I picked up a drink and that night got a DUI. An addict's relapse is never far enough away from the last use.
