None that I know of. YET.

I know the feeling. Shit.

I doubt I'll get too involved here, and I do not favor one debater over another, but I must strenuously disagree with the notion that drugs work only on the symptoms (expression) of depression rather than on the underlying illness itself. I believe that it does work on the underlying pathophysiology of the illness, either directly or indirectly. I have found that one pill can make all of the many symptoms of depression (bipolar in my case), both psychological and physical, disappear all at once.

There may be a misunderstanding of semantics going on here. I consider a runny-nose as a "symptom" of a bacterial infection. I consider the infection as the illness itself. Decongestants treat the symptom. Antibiotics treat the illness.

2 cents? A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.
