Treatment Resistant Depression is diagnosed when a patient of clinical depression has taken at least three types of antidepressants in maximum dose for sufficient duration. Psychiatric evaluation is based on history, clinical symptoms, personality factors, ongoing psychosocial stressors and frequency and severity of symptoms. It requires direct interaction with the patient on a regular basis. Once diagnosed, a management plan is formed based on intensity and frequency of symptoms and associated biological and psycho social factors. Based on your clinical history, your doctor plans the type of medicine and it's dose and duration. For TRD, various augmenting agents and ECTs can be recommended.
