I think you're right but I would like to see someone rebut this idea with less gloomy thoughts.

*Some* people recover from treatment resistant depression... don't they?


> I think people become treatment resistant on account of cellular problems. Antidepressants just affect neurotransmitters. If the cellular structure is not in place, or if there is atrophy/dammage, then the cell is not going to function properly regarless of how much neurotransmitter is available. The neurotransmitter is just a messenger.

> Treatment resistance is probably much like diseases like parkinsons, M.S., Huntingtons, Alzheimers, etc where there is extensive cellular dammage.

> The monoamine hypothsis is a product of the fact that we can alter monoamines. We can't do much for loss of cellular integrity.
