This is a great question and I hope someone posts. It's helpful to keep in mind, though, that depression is a multi-symptom, multi-spectrum disorder, and by that I mean that it manifests itself in numerous ways and probably reflects a spectrum of brain dysregulations, not just one pure disorder. So, some drugs will work for some people. Some will work for others. Some may not, and so on.

That said, I hunger for a look at the "odds" of meds working, too, and wonder what med would best to start on. There's really no concrete answer--these meds are still prescribed on a case by case basis, often depending on what kind of depression you have: with or without anxiety? insomnia? lethargy? Etc. Etc.

I betcha, though, that someone out there has found some kind of useful grid. I hope they post, too.
