> Any advice for someone with severe depression who has not esponded to standard treatment?

I too have treatment resistant major depression which is considered to be atypical. Over many years the only ADs I've really responded to (and I've tried many) have been in the MAOI class. If your standard treatment hasn't yet included a trial of a MAOI, perhaps you could discuss it with your psych. They're not considered a 'first line' drug because of dietary restrictions, but with care there's very little risk involved and for me they have been of significant benefit. Nardil (phenelzine) and Parnate (tranylcypromine) seem to be the most popular. Use the Google search function on Dr Bob's site to find lots of information on these ADs and their effects. Good luck.
