Question atypical depression treatment ?

If the options have both SSRI and MAOi then what wall we give ?? SSRI have better side effect profile but somewhere I have read that still Maoi are given. Kind of confusing

For step 1, MAOI could be a correct answer.

For step 2, you nearly ALWAYS start with the simplest and safest treatment, in this case that would be SSRI.

I tried googling it but didn't find anything, i would personally choose SSRI. If that doesnt work, then add another one (SSRI) after a month .. and if THAT doesnt work, then you try another class.
