I have suffered from severe clinical chronic depression for about 55 years now. I have tried almost every medication on the market. I've been through counseling, and I've been through 40+- shock treatments and too many hospitalizations to count. I've tried exercise but other illnesses keep me from doing very much of that. Is there a particular combination of medications that seem to be more effective than others. Do doctors combine different classes of drugs that seem to be more effective? I am getting desperate. I am now 68 years old, just lost my father, moved in with a roommate who is very controlling, moved to another state and have no friends I can confide in. I just started seeing a LCSW and I think she is going to be helpful. But I've been through enough CBT and it has not been effective on a long term basis. I would say that a very small percentage of my life has experienced any kind of happiness at all. Anyone out there with some suggestions? Thank you. bbnrse
