I see ativan (lorazepam) listed: But no antidepressant. Ativan (lorazepam) will not help to cure your depression. You need an antidepressant or a mood stabilizer for that. I can understand why you are frustrated. I suspect that you aren't seeing a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists are specialists with selecting the best medication for mental health problems. It is also important to use non-pharmacologic types of treatment. Talk about feelings ; >.
