Almost all antidepressants this side effect.

And you triedseveral ones so far without effect.

Antipsychotic medicatinos like Abilify, Lithium, zyprexa or seroquel can be used.

I will prefer Abilify as first choice due to the less side effects.

Also we add levothyroxine to boost the medication effect

Little bit of thyroid deficiency is common in chronic resistant depression.
