Need EMSAM Advice

Hi. I'm a first time poster here, but I'm a desperate one. I'm really hoping someone can help me. I started on EMSAM patches on April 18th (it's now April 28th). In the past, I had always taken prozac, which was very effective for me. But the weight problem and the sexual side effects pushed me to try EMSAM. I suffer from depression, anxiety and OCD. Since I started using the patch, I've had extremely anxious periods, OCD is becoming unmanageable, and the depression seems worse rather than better. I find myself extremely emotional, crying for no reason, feelings of hopelessness, and of course the ever popular feelings of impending doom. Yesterday, the doctor added Lithium to the mix to see if it will help. I already take Klonopin. I'm also currently on a low carbohydrate diet for breakfast and lunch. Can anyone offer me opinions on whether I should stick with EMSAM or if it sounds like I'm one of the unlucky ones? I apologize for the length of the posting. Thanks
