I was thinking of talking to the Psychiatrist about going on Amitriptyline..although it is an older medication..have heard many good things about it. Today, I went and had breakfast with a friend who is on it, but she said that Amitriptyline is only for mild depression and it is usually prescribed to people who have pain (such as Fibromyalgia) as well as mild depression. I have major/chronic depression. Feeling confused as to which med to go on..currently on Remeron..but I feel it is pooping out..very confused as to what to talk to the Psychiatrist about. She has been trying to put me on Effexor..maybe I will just try the Effexor and try to forget all the horror stories I read on it. Confused..so many meds..choices..what to do..what to do. Hate having to deal with side effects. I had none on the Remeron - pretty lucky on that one. Thanks for listening.
