Question about anti-depressants

I’ve tried a few before but always came off them bc I felt like they were making me angry but I’m just so tired all the time of thinking about killing my self. I don’t know if it’s my anxiety and can you get tablets for anxiety? I’m also reluctant to trying a bunch out bc of other side effects and stuff in the long run. I would go to my doctor but I feel like I’m not taken seriously or listened to and that includes my previous counselling and therapy etc sessions but basically I want to know if anyone is on them and if they’ve helped? How long did it take for you to notice a change. I’m worried that I’ll take them for no reason and still think about suicide all day and night, maybe I want anxiety tabs instead, are they the same thing as anti deps . Any help is appreciated

Some meds are for both depression and anxiety but there are also separate meds for anxiety.

My wife was on a med that was supposed to help with both Depression and Anxiety but didn’t get relief until she had an anti anxiety med added to that. The combination helped her.
