have treatment resistant depression and i'm looking for advice. i've tried a number of antidepressants, some have worked temporarily. i'm looking for reliable treatment. now i'm trying viibryd. i asked about remeron because i heard it might work with trd and because i'm quite thin and heard it helps with appetite and gaining weight. i'm also curious about deplin. vitamin D? is there anything i should mention to my doc next time i see her?

bslinkymi1212, I would really push on more information on the Vit D, perhaps with additional melatonin if you're have sleep issues as in not enough.

The other serotonin drugs seem to have a lfe cycle of effectiveness. Then ending up on a cocktail of drugs. At this time I don't know of a drug which truly removes depression, reduces from some, yes - cure no. Sorry to say, sometimes I could almost be a conspiracy theroist on drug companies and their practices.

Everything you mentioned is good. Remeron has some studies showing that when combined with other antidepressants it can work for resistant depression. the folate-like vitamin, Deplin also has studies... Vit D has the least data, but I have seen it help folks too
