Luvox (fluvoxamine) monotherapy is an option. Its ability to antagonize sigma-1 receptors is unique among serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Stay away from Zoloft (sertraline). It stimulates sigma-1 receptors, which can make psychotic depression worse.

I am not aware of there being a general contraindication of taking an SSRI for psychotic depression. Perhaps someone can provide more information regarding this.

Combining a SSRI with a AAP yields better results than using a AAP alone. Of course, Zoloft might be best avoided, despite its use in some studies.
