Nortriptyline + an SSRI hits both noradrenalin and seretonin, can give the 1-2 knockout punch to depression, it also has some effect at the 5HT2 receptor, so can reduce anxiety.

You could try melatonin to help with the sleep rythem thing....cheaply avaliable from the US, try Vitacost.com

Bupropion hits noradrenalin and dopamine, can realy help the anhedonia and poor concentration.

For me, the combo of an SSRi with any of the NARI's (reboxetine, nortriptyline, bupropion) worked well - I'm currently taking sertraline + rebxetine because it is avaliable localy and is easy to take.

Dont be afraid to use Valium or another benzo when you need it, the risks have been blown out of all proportion in the popular media, even if you do become dependant, you just need to taper slowly when its time to stop.
