I recently weened off Paxil (took for 2 months only 10mg) and started Amitriptyline a few days ago. I started at only 5mg and am now up to 25mg/day. I have no side effects and have been sleeping well, but my depression is back and I'm having panic attacks again. I had horrible side effects with the Paxil (jitteriness and irritability mostly) but it worked in terms of anti-panic and depression. To anyone who has experience taking Amitriptyline after an SSRI: does it take time to work? Just wondering when I should give up because it doesn't seem to be helping my anxiety or depression. Thanks!

Does Paxil seem to work best with less side effect of sleepiness by taking the dose in the morning,?
