Do you feel *much* worse in the morning, but feel better at night? This is the pattern for those with melancholic (endogenous) depression, who are thought to be particularly apt to respond to tricyclic antidepressants (TCA). From your description, it wouldn't seem so. Your vegetative symptoms are reversed from those of melancholic depression. They are probably considered to be "anergia" - no energy. When "atypical" depression was first identified and described, MAOIs were found to be more effective than TCAs.

There is a difference between sleepiness or somnolence and having a lack of energy all day long. Which of these symptoms predominate in your case? Is "depressed" the best word to describe your experience? Besides sleepiness and somnolence, how else would you describe your depression? Are your thoughts depressed?

How did you respond to MAOIs?
