Sorry, "playing drug store cowboy" is a research term I use quite frequently in the lab. It refers to just trying a host of drugs on a sample until you get the desired effect. For instance, if you want to know what antibiotic kills a certain bacteria, you culture the bacteria and then hit it with a host of antibiotics to see which one works.

Shopping around for the the appropriate meds combo for depression strikes me a lot like playing drugstore cowboy in that way.

Is your primary "diagnosis" major depression? I'm a little concerned about the addition of seroquel in depression - I must admit. It's indicated for mania. Hmmm.

I would float that over on psychobabble (the meds board) and see what they think.
