By the way I would say this should be really called the "Gold Standard" for ads. Back in the old days before the invention of ssrs this was the go to ad for severe depression. Docs usually use nortriptyline because for most people it is the most tolerable of the tcas. If you can deal with the sides which should get better with time. I know most studies say 66% rate of success for ads but I read a study one that had an 88% rate of success for amitriptyline.
