I find it odd that your medical doctor, who supposedly has appropriate
training in research and how to read and interpret basic scientific
medical studies, would suggest to you that (a) there is a valid and
reliable difference between these two supposed types of depressions
and (b) doctors have a medical test which measures this to be able
to reliable and validly differentiate between the two.

While it is _theorized_ that there exists these two different types
of depression, and while some studies have shown pretty pet scans
which purport to "prove" this difference (which is impossible to
do at this point in our scientific knowledge), there are no medical
tests at this time which clearly differentiate the two.

Having said all that, I wouldn't feel too bad about having to take
a medication all of your life, since diabetics and others do it, too.
I would read up all that I could on the particular medication you
are taking, however, and ensure you find its level of safety and
efficacy tolerable. I would not blindly accept one professional's
opinion (including mine), without doing some research into this
stuff myself. Especially if someone told me I was going to have
to live with it the rest of my life.

Good luck!
