You need a specialist in treatment resistant depression. It doesn't sound like your doctor has done much in the way of polypharmacy.
Have you tried Lamictal?
I have also found Abilify to be an effective antidepressant. I've had a more sustained response on Lamictal + Abilify than I have had on antidepressants. Not perfect, there are still bumps in the road, but they definitely help.
My pdoc has had some good results using memantine for depression. I responded very well to it. I couldn't tolerate an effective dose and eventually stopped it, but I am extraordinarily sensitive to side effects. It might be worth a trial for you.
I don't think you've hit the end of the road yet as far as treatment options. Good luck.
