I am on basically the lowest dose of each:

10mg of amitriptyline a night
300mg of lithium at night
37.5mg of Effexor in the morning

However, oftentimes I won't take all 3. I use rTMS, herbs, caffeine, vitamins, exercise etc. to try and manage other symptoms.

Oftentimes, lithium alone will be enough, but then I lapse (mostly depression, anhedonia and obsessiveness) at which point I stop the lithium and start the antidepressants. When I feel better, often I will stop the antidepressant and go back on lithium. Surprisingly I don't get withdrawal doing this. When I feel 'normal' often the lithium alone can maintain this for a few weeks at a time.

It is completely unconventional to do it this way, but it seems to work.
