> Okay so I've been taking amitriptyline for over 3 weeks at at least 75mg and nearly 2 weeks at 100mg.
> Firstly it definitely has some positive benefits on my mood. Last week I was definitely feeling better, but I went out on a drinking binge at the weekend and seem to have gone backwards this week.
> So 3 weeks in I still have lulls in mood, some racing thoughts, ringing in ears, retraction of extremities encountering stress and low stress tolerance. I am however definitely more motivated generally (albeit not back to my normal self).
> At what stage do I accept that I'm only a partial responder and either (a) increase the dose or (b) augment with something else or (c) switch meds ? I don't want to do c I don't think.

Actually I've felt like s**t at moments today - think it's attributable to the after effects of alcohol again! When I drink heavily on the weekend I feel it for the next week...need to give up.
