allic, menopause due to its nature of hormonal imbalances is apt to mess with a variety of issues within your body. I myself have never had good luck with AD's. I am on wellbutrin and so far it has elevated my dopamine levels some not enough as far as I am concerned.

When I went off cymbalta it was tough. But then I did not have another AD on board. You are on Effexor XR and it could be a help to tapering off cymbalta. I would taper off it gradually and see if you can increase the effexor. Are you still on zoloft. Many people use prozac to wean off cymbalta.

There are supplements you can take that can help with menopause. I know of a website that you can visit to get some information about them. Maybe if you relieve some of those symptoms you can better understand your MDD. You know depression is an issue with menopause due to the hormonal imbalance as well so it can make your MDD worse so it might not be that the meds are necessarily working but that menopause is making the existing issues worse.

Good luck let me know if you want the links.
