Anecdotally, the TCAs can work faster for some individuals than SSRIs. TCAs block a brain chemical called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine blockers can be 'fast acting' antidepressants.

That being said, a fast response to antidepressants can (occasionally) be a sign of bipolar. However, since you were not responding to other meds, I wouldn't assume this is the case. However, just something to keep in mind.

I am personally on nortriptyline and lithium. I love nortriptyline. I would say it worked for me fairly quickly and I have fewer side effects on it than many other drugs I've tried.
