Here are some less radical ideas:
-Buspar (by itself, in high doses; or as augmentation of an SSRI)
-MAO inhibitors (Nardil, Parnate)
-tramadol (Ultram)
-stimulants (Ritalin, Cylert, etc.)
-lithium (full dose, not augmentation doses)
-I think that SAMe seems worth a shot
-sleep deprivation (alone or in combination with an AD)
-reconsider diagnosis (what *are* you being treated for, anyway? I don't think you mentioned!)

Also, just checking, did you have adequate trials of all the ones you listed? How high were the doses? And all of them were completely ineffective?

What are your symptoms, and how long has this depression lasted?

I asked my doctor if I could try taking a narcotic that came in a sustained-release tablet (oxycodone does as well) because one of the problems I was having with Buprenex was that I had trouble taking the midday dose, and it was wearing off with rather nasty effects. (Not withdrawal symptoms - those tend to be *delayed*, and actually I didn't experience any - but relapse of my depression.) So he had me try MS Contin. I didn't find it worked very well and wasn't willing to push the dose up too high due to side effects.
