In brief: SSRI

I always try to start with meds that have very well known effectiveness , low side effects, low cost, no habituation risk and once a day dosing.
These include : prozac, zoloft, paxil, (paroxetine) celexa, lexapro, and many others.Please discuss with your dr what might be best for you.

In brief: Multiple treatments.

Medication, traditional psychotherapy, and cognitive therapy are proven treatments for depression.
Sometimes they work best in combination. Talk with your doctor about your symptoms and treatment preferences to decide which is best for you.
