Which drug(s) are best for severe depression?

Posted by trainspotter on August 23, 2009, at 5:50:41

Hi all, I think it's a balanced scientific community in the answers to my previous post. As it's about psycho-babble I like to have an opinion on another topic. Dysphoria, dysthemia and low grade depression is common and the GP treats with an SSRI or atypicals (sometimes ST John's wort can work), for anxious depressed. However, in some people depression is so severe that they stay in their rooms all day and night, have little appetite and sleep, ruminating about suicide. I once passed this stage. What suicidal think? Well since my childhood and 20 yr long sweet heart died, I thought I can talk to her only if I was dead too. Sanity ends, retardation appears. There can be social anxiety,PD or OCD and GAD or psychotic or retarded or PTSD. WHAT DRUG OR COMBOS ARE NEEDED FOR SEVERE DEPRESSION??
MY OPINION Calfornia Rocket fuel or
some SSRI and NARI or high enough dose of SNRI with stimulants or augmentation of SSRIs with Remeron or Desyrel (Trazodone)or Symbal(Fluoxetine and Olanzapine) or
SNRI + Antiepileptics specially Lamictal
MAOI + TCA (careful) works.
Only serotonin doesn't really help motivation and energy. Double or triple uptake inhibition/releaser? Name some drugs which can help extreme depression, I'll talk to my doc about it.
