He needs to go to a different doctor.  Is he already taking medication for anxiety and depression.  maybe something he should look into.  I know it's hard for guys to admit they need help.  Just as equally hard for them to tell a doctor.  My dh is going to the doctor tomorrow and specifically requesting some anti-depressants.  He has been stressed and depressed for a long time.  It just took him forever to admit it.  Good luck mama.  I hope he goes and gets the help he needs quickly

Maybe they need to change the dosage or try a different medication.  Especially if it isn't helping.  There are so many different types of anti depressants and unfortunately some of them don't work for all.  My BIL went through 3 different antidepressants until they found one that worked for him
