Yes, and the early antipsychotics such as
Haldol, and Carbamazepine, Thor***something;

They are good for psychotic depression, or
what is now called unipolar. I always thought
the SSRIs were for lighter depression, and
also, they are agitating, resulting in possible
suicidation in the interim of depression and
alleviation; whereas the old ones hit you like
a ton of bricks.
> My mind could argue with the AD effect of SSRI's, wheras it was harder to argue with the TCA's, for a while at least.
I don't know what you mean;
