Depression and anxiety

My name is Dave and I am new to this forum. I am 52 yrs old and have worked in the environmental engineering field for 25 yrs. I have always struggled with anxiety and depression due to some pretty serious family history and recently my parents have passed away and my Wife has Leukemia. I maintain pretty well and my faith in God has kept me going but lately I have been discouraged. I have had therapy for a couple yrs recently and that has helped. I am on 175 mg Zoloft ,10 mg 2x daily busperone and I average 10 .5 mg lorazapam per month. so that is a rough look at my history.
I am wondering if anyone could comment on my meds - they seem to work ok and they have been pretty consistent for about 4 yrs although the zoloft has steadily ramped up- sometimes I feel foggy and that bothers me - I would love to get off the meds but I find that hard - I still have bouts with anxiety which makes me wonder if a different med from zoloft would help - well, thanks for listening - I appreciate any feedback
God bless and have a nice day
