I have had depression for many years now which resulted in me becoming alcohol dependent. i am clean now so ready to tackle depression my mood had lifted i was sleeping and eating quite well. Went to Dr they recommended sertraline 50mg was ok apart from i went back to not sleeping my IBS flared up and for some reason i need to pee constantly and sometines not much comes out (dont knowif these connected) went for my 2 week review ( I know it can take a month + to kick in but was prepared to persevere!) Doctor was a bit abrupt. Mentioned the not sleeping well again ( had to use OTC stuff to go to sleep) so he said stop sertraline and go on amitrpteline 10mg increase to 20mg if need be) i was on 10mg previously for ibs and it didnt get me to sleep but i did sleep better. But i think this is a low dose for depression and pharacist agreed..... last time i was on sertraline i was on amitrpteline also........ he said now im not drinking if i sleep that might be enough? What do people think? Thank you
