Has he been diagnosed with something in addition to depression? It sounds like there is really more going on here. I agree with vw9729 that a visit to the doctor is called for.

I strongly suggest you get him to the doctor right away. He needs help, and the doctors can't help him if they don't know what is going on. Go with him to see the doctor and you tell the doctor what's going on. It sounds like his medicine either isn't working, it's too strong or he needs it increased or something. I don't believe he's suffering from "brain death" though but something is going on and he (and you) need help. ((HUGS))
