I've suffered with depression for years. Ssri usually work for me and I would also take 10mg amitrypteline for my ibs. Stopped meds depression got worse became alcohol dependant. I'm clean now so went back to docs was put on sertraline has my 2 week review today. Said I felt ok I'm myself which I do but know the depression is still there.... but sertraline was affecting my ibs and giving me insomnia. He asked if I'd ever taken amitrypteline I said yes for my ibs and it would help a little with my sleep. So he's stopped my sertraline and now he's said just to take amitrypteline 10-20 mg per night. Is this enough to treat depression???? Pharmacist didn't think so. I want to go back to work soon but can't til depression sorted even though I'm feeling a bit better now my concentration etc could be improved. Please can anyone give me some advice??
