Other avenues: Stay on a routine, consider removing inflammatory food from your diet , sugar dairy, grains, exercise regularly 30min or more /d, Work on regular down time , meditation, or mindfulness . Get into a counseing relationship, PCP may be good referral source . wellbutrin/buproprion works differently that the prozac, /zoloft may be a good choice

Antidepressant: Agree with earlier input. Did you try to contact your PCP or psychiatrist? Many providers are currently seeing patient's via virtual health/ telehealth? Some providers took a while to get long-distance care going. So I encourage you to try again. Your provider can make the best recommendation based on comprehensive assessment.
