> so are there no other AD's that aren't SSRI's out there?

Non-SSRI antidepressants? There are a ton of them: the tricyclics; MAOIs; novel agents such as Wellbutrin; Remeron; Serzone; dual action medications such as Effexor and Cymbalta; augmenting agents such as Lamictal or Abilify; some medications which aren't available in the US; and probably a few others I'm not remembering right now.

My guess is that it's not just a non-SSRI medication you're asking about. You're looking for something which will relieve your distress more rapidly than what you're on. That's a whole lot harder.

Honestly -- if Wellbutrin has worked in the past for you, I'd recommend giving it some more time. Although it does tend to work a bit faster than the SSRIs, I know that it's never worked for me in less than about ten days. It's hard to wait when you've been in so much pain, but if you don't give it time, it won't work at all, you know?

I hope the Wellbutrin does kick in for you, and that it does so soon. Good luck.
