In reply to Atypical depression? already tried MAOIs & Prozac, posted by Anita on March 6, 1999, at 22:07:40

There are still many options left to try, although
you are right that Prozac and MAOs would be first-
line strategies in atypical depression.
Have you tried other SSRIs, especially Zoloft and
Luvox? Have you discussed augmentation options
with meds like valproate or gabapentin? Have you
tried the older but often effective meds like
Tofranil (imipramine)? Finally, and perhaps
most of all, I'd also recommend looking into
naltrexone, as discussed by Wayne R., since its
use in refractory depression looks extremely
Best wishes to you,
