James here....

Hmmm.... generally TCA's are more effective for severe depression and and SSRI's work beter for less severe depressions. I get the feeling you did best on the TCA ? If so work on augmenting it, or what ever worked the best. How about Pindolol + TCA or something else ? I can't remember if you tried opioids, like Naltrexone and others ? I have been off the net for a week due to a major computer overhall (with several choice works to Mr Gates ! ) so I have forgotten peoples Hx.

Effexor XR + TCA or Remeron is a big gun, too. Seems to cover all the bases, neuro transmitter wise. When I was on Effexor + TCA I found I could get the TCA down to a small dose so it had less of an effect on sex drive.
