I have taken so many antidepressants & Benz's for several decades. I started on these drugs in my early 30's. After so long I'm not no longer able to take SSRI'S or SNRI'S and also not able to take Benz's. So once again, I'm having to be a Ginnie pig/lab rat to dry and find another drug that will work for me. Many of the Ones I took didn't work for me. I'm so hoping this medication will do the trick. My younger sister takes Elavil and it really works for her and she has been taking it for quiet a few years. My question is.. "however Silly it may sound from a grown woman." If it Works for her would it possibly work for me the same? I'm so hoping I won't have to be that Ginnie pig again.
