Hello
No
Essentially the same medication is used.
A combination of anxiety and depression is common, depression with agitation is common
However, there can be agitated depression with psychosis, in this case a different medication, such as a newer anti-psychotic/mood stabilizing drug would be used.
If associated with bi polar disorder, then bipolar medications.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
