lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others

I looked up narcisstic personality because I had never heard about it. That was the only one out of the possible symptoms that jumped out at me. Not to bash you with but as a way to consider the possibility that your perception and hers might be alittle different about the subject of her depression.

That said, there's situational depression and depression caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Situational is like my father-in-law... he just lost his wife of 50 years to a heart attack. He'll be on AD's for a few months to help him out during the worst of the grieving process, then get on with the rest of his life. A chemical imbalance won't be fixed in a few months on AD's any more than a diabetic would be fixed by a few months of insulin shots.

I agree that adding med after med to counter-act SE's of other meds gets excessive and scary. I'm having to quit Effexor because of raised blood pressure, not take BP meds to counteract it. The difference Effexor made was incredible though. Worth considering by itself if nothing else is working.

Good luck for you and your wife.
