In brief: The one that works

Every person is a unique individual.
Not every person will respond to a particular medication, hence the reason for so many different antidepressants.

In brief: None

None of the anti depressants are considered the best.
The best choice for you is the one that has worked in the past. If none have been successful, see a specialist for better suggestions. If you have had multiple recurring episodes you may need to consider long term therapy.
