> thanks for reply, i came of efexor summer last year but had to go back on because i could feel a clinical depression creeping back. i've never had this in the past and i'm a bit worried at the moment that this will happen again.

I was on Elivel (Amitriphyline) for many years off and on also. I started taking ADs in the mid 70s. Elivel finally pooped out. So did Prozac, Zoloft, etc. etc. The only thing left was Effexor. Fortunately, it worked. It has worked for 3 years now. I really don't plan to go off of it. Plus, going off and on ADs makes one resistent. It is just better to stay on them if you have a chronic type depression like I have. I figure it is like taking High Blood pressure medication. You have to live with it.
