Thank you for your response Scott, I'll look into those options. I was aware of Ketamine's experimental use but not of its potential to effect response to other antidepressants. Do you have any links to relevant articles? I'd like to read more. Your mention of the Opiate option made me think of my lack of response to endorphins. I wonder if there is any useful diagnostic information in that?
A related question: Do you have any sleep-related problems? I experience the symptoms of a combination of Narcolepsy and Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder. The specialist is still trying to work out exactly what the issue is. It may be a co-contributor to my the depression or purely coincidental.
