There are many good drugs on the market for depression. Most people find one that will help them. Antidepressants work by changing the level of certain chemicals in your brain called neurotransmitters. Normally, these chemicals pass signals from one brain cell to another, but in depression, some of them do not work properly.
Antidepressants often have to be taken for a long time, and it is important to come off them slowly to prevent side effects.
I use Cymbalta but there are many out there and finding the right one sometimes takes trying more than just one drug.
I hope you can find a physician that will work with you on the medication aspect of treating depression.
