I’m very sorry. None of the Ask the Therapist team is a psychiatrist (medical doctor) so we cannot advise you about medications. I can only urge you to work closely with your prescriber.
Take a few moments each evening to write down how you felt that day. Keep track of side effects, including those dreams, confusion and sensitivity. Also keep track of how many hours a night you are sleeping and a general indication of what you are eating and how much exercise you are getting. Do make sure you take the right dose of your medication at the right times each day. Record that as well. Bring that information to your next appointment.
You are the central member of your treatment team. Complete and detailed information can help your prescribing doctor more effectively monitor and adjust your medications.
Meanwhile, do continue see a talk therapist as well. Agoraphobia is often responsive to desensitization therapy. Depression often responds to increased attention to self-care. Your therapist can provide you with new skills and needed support. He or she can also help you address what you suggest is a psychological addiction to the benzos.
I wish you well.
