Just thought I would give you a update on where I have been over the past 10 weeks to be honest I have been to the gates of hell and back more than once... I was almost at my wits end with the most severe period of depression in my life think I almost killed myself at least ten times won't go into details but let's say i Am here only because my instinct to live was so strong at the point of no return ... the hospital doctor put me on amitriptyline because every other type of medication just stopped working for me .. Started me on 75mg at first but felt it was far to strong and was knocking me sideways cut it back to 50mg this drug almost pushed me over the edge major suicidal episodes that lasted for the 10 weeks it got that bad I committed myself to the psych ward for my own safety and my wifes sanity put that poor women through hell with worry .. The head doctor suggested that I should up the dose to 100mg with a view to take it up to the full dose of 150mg I was like really what the hell this stuff had almost push me over the edge .. but said to myself what so l have to lose ... But you know he was right with the higher dose it really started to work I started to feel joy for the first time in years and have increased the dose up to 125 mg prob been a week on this higher amount and can honestly say feel so so much better .. I guess what I am saying is please give this drug a chance even like me at first thought this Stuff is killing me fight it out and there is light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel xxx

It's lovely to hear some good news on the medication front. I had much the same story as yours, but in my case it was lithium that saved the day. X
