ATYPICAL antipsychotics for ATYPICAL depression?

Posted by dave_fox on July 29, 2001, at 6:56:42

Excuse me for what may sound like a bit of a dumb question.

I understand that there is a group of antipsychotic meds called "Atypical Antipsychotics" and I wanted to ask if this is anything at all to do with treating what is called "Atypical Depression".

I am trying to understand the so far unsuccessful treatment of my own atypical depression (I also have dysthymia and a noticeably obsessional personality type too).

There have been one or two references here to the atypical antipsychotics, Amisulpride and Risperdal. Are these atypical antipsychotics linked to atypical depression? Or is the name "atypical" just a co-incidence?

Thanks for any info.
