Feeling hopeless about the possibility of finding a solution to the problem of an ongoing depression is common and is the result of a frustrating series of failed drug trials plus the "negative thinking' of someone who is depresed.

I have seen many patients who have developed resitance to many drugs but who eventually find a combination of medications that provide ongoing relief. Such combinations are often complex and involve two or three antidepressants plus one or two mood stabilizers or low doses of an antipsychotic. Very often such successful "cocktails" involve the use of medication that had failed when used singly or in less complex combinations in the past.

Best regards . . .
