I second that.
Get another opinion. You seem to have a chronic or cycling depression.
Also, ADs plus mood stabilizers are used all the time. I am on 2 ADs, lithium, and 2 thyroid meds.
If you go to a second doc who drives you nuts with a whole slew of new dxes, you can always consult a third. Anyway, the dx is not that much of an issue. Focus more on the symptoms, the patterns of when the symptoms occur. Give a detailed history of what meds you have tried and your reactions to them, and find a doc who will try to figure this puzzle out with you.
