Hang in there. My case isn't as severe as yours, but I am also treatment-resistant and I have found that only Parnate and Nardil have TOUCHED the depression I have.

I think it's *inhumane* not to prescribe opiods and/or amphetamines when all other options have failed (SSRIs, SSNRIs, Wellbutrin, NaSSAs, TCAs, MAOIs). And yes, I think those two classes of drugs should be tried *before* ECT, in particular opiods like buprenorphine.
