> My doctor says this treatment is going to be revoluntionary. But he said they're pretty far off from hitting the market. How long are we talking here, 5 years...10 years? Anybody following the clinical trials for this and can give us an update?

I wouldnt count on these drugs being available for at least ten more years. Whether it will be revolutionary or not is another story...all psych drugs are "revolutionary" when they first come out and this stems from drug company marketing hype. (they wanna sell more drugs)

There are two treatments for severe depression already available that have "revolutionary" results and you dont have to wait for the FDA to approve the, cause they already are approved. They are ECT and MAOIs. Id suggest you try one or both rather than driving yourself crazy chasing experimental treatments that are a shot in the dark.
