> I am not sure what you mean by atypical depression. If you mean you do not get satisfactory results with the ADs by themselves, then this may be worth a shot. I tried nearly every AD in the book over 30 years and nothing would stick. Recently we augmented an SSRI with Naltrexone and it has changed my life. I chose to augment Prozac but understand that any SSRI can be effective. Best wishes... Wayne

Wayne, is there any information on why this wroks? I mentioned this to my doctor and he hadn't heard of Naltrexone used to augment SSRI's.

I have an atypical depression also, whatever that means, but most of the AD's except Marplan did not work for me. Although now I am on Paxil which worked briefly, then we added Wellbutrin to the Paxil and this combo seems pretty good. I may add the Wellbutrin to Prozac my next time around.

Why is your depression considered atypical?
