Just thought I would jump in with my two cents worth.

I am of the opinion that the closer a drug is to targetinig whatever the true underlying brain chemical problem is, the quicker and more dramatic it will work. I've just witnessed it too many times to discount it. And, the farther away a drug is from targeting the real problem, the longer it takes to work, if ever, through a cascade of chain reactions that occur over time. With that in mind, then it would just seem that whatever meds have already been tried, well, look elsewhere. Like in the antipsychotic category (Zyprexa, Risperdal), and/or the stimulant category(Ritalin, Adderall). I've seen a lot of life-long sufferers experience dramatic improvement in anywhere from one day to one week, when they finally stumbled onto the right meds through systematic trial and error.

I continue to favor Zyprexa + Prozac as a powerful double depression buster.
