Hi Aster,

Welcome! Now I'm not the newest member anymore! :D

The two newer medications you may want to look into that come to mind if you're going the ssri/snri route are Viibryd and Cymbalta (a SSNRI). While they didn't work for me, I know that some people have had good luck with those.

In addition to the exercise and meditation that Tomatheus recommended, I would recommend a good multi vitamin. A lot of times it's difficult for those of us who are depressed to get the nutrition that we need because we don't eat right/infrequently/etc. Most multivitamins aren't actually absorbed by the body well, if you can get to a health food store ask for a multivitamin made with real food. Your body will absorb more of the nutrients and you're not putting more chemicals in under the guise of "nutrition". This will also help support whatever medication you and your doctor decide on.

Best of luck,
Cat
