In brief: No right answer
The best ssri is the ssri which works for you.
How do we figure that out? Well: what worked before, or what worked for a close relative. We try that first. If that doesn't work, we try another. If that doesn't work, an snri or a tricyclic may be next. As far as overall efficacy, the ssri's are generally considered equal.
