amitriptyline and citalopram, plus i've got diazepam for my really bad days. I try to avoid taking that though, it doesn't make me feel good the next day.

Just began the last of the developed Tri-Cyclics: Lofepramine @ 140mg.

Tired at first; groggy; and brain zapped from withdrawing from ecitalopram. Starting to feel the weight of the full depression lifting somewhat.

3 weeks now and counting on the new drug and still withdrawing from ecitalopram which began to stop working a few months ago (of course they wouldn't listen to me and simply increased the dose), and consequently left me in the depths of a very severe episode and in a lot of pain each day. Each day getting worse before demanding lofepramine. Still finding my way out of the darkness and pain of those days.

I just want to say that one life changing medication for one person will have no effect on another - so comparing meds isn't a worthwhile endeavor as you probably know. It is worthwhile to research which class of anti - depressant has the most effect...SSRI's/Tri-cyclics and the rest....

Don't simply accept what they prescribe you. Do your own research and use your own intuition. It's your life and your body. If you have a chemical imbalance and endogenous/long term and recurring depression then medication is still very much a great help despite what you might hear from the "experts". It can actually help change lives if you stumble across the right medication for your type of depression (unique to you).

Be strong - get angry - stay calm - find your own answers - don't be patronized.

love for all.

feelings of enormous anger and rage during the weekend. Not sure if it is due to the new meds or withdrawing from the old or simply just tired.

Not a nice to feeling to hate everybody but managing to control it mostly.
