Types of antidepressants for particular cases?

This isn't a personal question, it's more for a story I'm writing. I need a brand of antidepressant for a seventeen year old that has severe depression. She has had thoughts of suicide and has actually attempted it more than once. It needs to be safe for a nursing mother to take. And it needs to have very harmful side effects on a person taking it that doesn't need it; making them addicted to it. And it needs to be able to be prescribed by a therapist in the US. I don't know anything about anti depressants and google isn't helping much. Thanks for your help.

Update:

Oh, and it should actually REALLY help the person taking it, almost as if it cures their depression.

    Safe for a nursing mother AND chock full of side effects....AND cures depression.

    Most antidepressants might resolve 50% of symptoms IF a patient is really, really, really lucky.

    None of them are safe for nursing mothers.
