Let's see, I can see some huge gaps there:

Desipramine, anafranil, amitryptiline, Effexor, Cymbalta, Remeron, Topomax -- which boosts ADs for some -- Lamictal, Abilify, it really is worth trying Deplin or MetanX, and that doesn't even begin to address combinations, including as simple an idea as adding thyroid meds.

One of the hardest parts of depression is that Catch-22: you're depressed, so you can't see the potential for medications to help. I go through that a lot -- and it often leads me to the brink of suicide. That is one benefit of Babble -- someone will say, "oh, here are three or four other options you didn't think of..." and I'll at least be able to see that I haven't reached the end of the road. (Then again -- I believe that therapy will have more lasting benefit for me than the meds alone. I want a medication that allows me to get through therapy, in hopes that I can maintain an adequate quality of life with medications which are only partially effective on their own. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else.)

Good luck.
