YES...that oh so desperate, sweet relief! That is really the heart of it all. I still remember, on the day of my first psych appointment. I was in such depressive tatters, soulfully exhausted on a scorching hot summer day in 1994. At about 4 in the afternoon, I took my first psych drug ever, lorazepam, and it was like the hand of god gently lay me into my bed. That evening, I took my first dose of amitriptyline, and I slept a sweet sleep that I so deeply needed. Like "st. joeseph's aspirin for the soul", as weeks went by, my life became, well, "LIFE", again.

I still take amitriptyline (and other meds as well) to this day, and it is my absolutely MOST reliable medication!! A recent study found the drug to likely be the most reliable antidepressant available....with some give and take. But, 'tis life!
