The current therapy: for depression is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which works best with medication if the depression is major, as your seems to be. There's always new meds or meds combinations, so don't give up. Add a therapist to your treatment team and look at other possible aggravators--diet and underlying allergies, glandular conditions, genetic information. If you're suicidal, go to the nearest ER.
