Dear friends,
I need help understanding the difference between regular antidepressant and tricyclic ones. When I saw my doctor last week, we discussed all the antidepressants I had taken prior to Celexa and Mirtazapine. I asked her about using a tricyclic drug. So she put me on amitriptiline. I am wondering how the drugs are different. I've taken every possible drug so now I'm on a tricyclic drug. How do the 2 drugs act differently? Any and all information is welcome and appreciated.

Seeking peace,
