Depends on what you mean by "standard treatment" -- there are so many different drugs out there, and they all work a little differently. Some folks here really have done a lot of research on the various drugs available, and can probably point out options to try if they know what you've tried so far. Can you list the drugs you've tried so far, with a quick note about what they did and didn't do? That will give them the information they need to offer practical suggestions for you.

A lot of doctors these days, especially PCPs, will stick with the SSRIs because they're so much safer than the older drugs. That would be great if "safer" were synonymous with "more effective", but it isn't. If your treatment has been limited to the newer drugs, then there are a myriad of options available that might be extremely helpful for you, but we'd need to know what you've tried so far and what the results have been.

Best luck.
