Perhaps after all of this time, Nardil is the drug best suited to hit depression + GAD. What do you think?

Yes. Negativity. It is an evil creature that lurks in the shadows, ready to pounce on you when you are most vulnerable to listen to it. Depression speaks negativity all of the time. It is difficult to rise above it and create positivity. Unfortunately, we are a community of treatment-resistant depressives. Those are the people who are attracted to this website. Even the most positive of people are going to share negative experiences of their failure to respond to past treatments. What you, Jan, do with that information will determine how you feel about it. The depression will, of course, try to tell you that this is a calamity of the worst proportions, and that no one ever gets well. This is called catastrophization. There have been success stories here, but the depression refuses to recognize them. This is called filtering. Anyway, the job is yours to understand that by its nature, Psycho-Babble attracts the worst cases, and that there are success stories if you are willing to remember them when you come across them. It is your job. You must create the positive despite the negative. So, what do you do with the information regarding that person's previous history of treatment failures? You chalk it up to the law of averages of this website and move on. You learn what you can from that person's history. Perhaps there was a treatment there that you hadn't tried yet. Following the person, you learn of a brand new treatment strategy to be tried. Positive stuff is here. You just have to be receptive for it and look for it and remember it. And now that you are at your worst, you won't. And that's ok. That's the way depression works. It is winning the current battle, but it will not win the war. This bad time will pass, and you will move forward once more.

Avoid people who speak with negavitity. Avoid cynicism. They are sinkholes and will drain you of your positive energy. They are depressogenic and will rob you of your vitality. You need every bit of it to fight this war.

Drugs work.

I pray that one exists that will work for you.

Time for a real MAOI. What do you think?
