i have to agree with james about exhausting the options for antidepressants before resorting to newer methods of treating depression, namely those with antipsychotics. the reason is that you may not be 'hitting the right receptors' for depression using the antipsychotics, and sometimes you may create new problems for yourself as your brain adjusts to the med. also, as for all psychotropic meds, dont be surprised if you get side effects that are unexpected because brains work differently from person to person. one person who had bipolar disorder (type 1 which is the classical definition) took zyprexa and ended up hallucinating - complete opposite of what the drug was intended to do (as it is an antipsychotic) so again, expect the expected as well as the unexpected.
