I'm sorry your having so much depression Patsy. You take 200 mg of amitriptyline a day??? I think I have tried effexor but I can't remember I've been on so many ADs. I take 40mg of celexa with 100mg of amitriptyline and it keeps me from drowning in depression, I still have to work at staying up some days. The frustration of dealing with fibro everyday for those of us with depression problems is hard even with meds. My doc tried to get me to try cymbalta but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
luv and hugs
