Failure of symptoms of depression to improve with antidepressant medication might indicate that the individual may actually be suffering from bipolar disorder and not a unipolar depression (Major Depressive Disorder). After several trials of antidepressants, consideration should be given to medications used for bipolar disorder. Responses to these medications often help make the proper diagnosis.
