Need Advice: Anti-depression and anti-psychotic meds

I need to find some resources and advice on anti-depression and anti-psychotic meds. Someone close to me is suffering from depression and I need resources to help them off anti-psychotics (Eposodel) and get the right anti-depressant.

She is currently taking:
375mg Effxor RX
125mg Seroquil

She's already had a distonic reaction to Geodon. Especially interested in naturopathic remedies and suspect food allergies.

It takes a qualified health care professional to PROPERLY diagnose chronic clinical depression.

This is the first port of call. Is the problem clinical depression or something else like bi-polar type 2.

Once this has been established, the health care professional can only TRY various anti-depressants in the HOPE that one will work.

I'm sorry I can't be helpful, but unfortunately no one can predict what side-effects an idividual will have to any given anti-depressant. We are all "guinea-pigs".
