Our expert says:
Eglanol is NOT a good treatent for any significan degree of Depression. Cilift is an effective AD for many people, but maybe better if taken in the morning, rather than later in the day. I don't understand why your GP should have felt "desperation" as there are so many potentially effective antidepressants worth trying. Weight gain is a side effect some people experience with various ADs. Around 70 % o people are well-suited by any particular AD, sometimes you're unfortunate and fall in the 30 % of the first few you try. A psychiatrist, knowing these drugs better, may be able from your pattern of responses, to select one more likely to suit you.
Have you considered askeing to be referred to a psychiatrist for a second opinion ?
