In brief: Why not

There are many things that can help and may not be all medications.

In brief: Therapy?

Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.

In brief: Depression

If depression is so great it negatively impacts daily function, a formal eval is recommended.
This is particularly the case if experiencing thoughts of self harm or suicide- the most effective treatments are those available through your doctor or mental health professional. I am available for a consult if you would like to discuss options further. Self help resources are in additional comments.
