You need to discuss this with your doctor.
In rasagiline (Azilect) clinical trials many patients received antidepressants ( SSRIs or TCAs) apparently without adverse interactions. However because there is the possibility of a rare, serious reaction (Serotonin syndrome) from these combinations it is not recommended.
If the use of an anti-depressant is important for you then you both need to weigh the benefits versus the (usually small) risk of using them with rasagiline.
