I'd guess it depended on the type of depression.

I know someone IRL who goes on a bit of Celexa when he's depressed, and that does the trick for him. He stays on it for as long as he needs it, then weans off it until he needs it again.

While I by nature tend to be anxious and agitated. An antidepressant without a mood stabilizer on board has been tried, and it just doesn't work with me. Actually my arsenal of psych meds right now doesn't include an antidepressant at all, and my pdoc has given me permission to vary doses to meet my needs.

Does your current pdoc believe that depression is a single illness? Or does he see it as something that is the result of more than one cause? I'd imagine some types of depression are more suitable to monotherapy than others.
