Anyone ever take a tri-cyclic?

I used to take Nortriptyline and it worked great for me and helped me sleep. I'm thinking of asking my dr about trying it again b/c I'm not sleeping and I need an anti-depressant anyway. Maybe she'll switch me from Cymbalta....Anyone take this class of medication?

I have taken norprimin in the past but I found that imipramin helped me a lot more.  Don't you like Cymbalta?  Possibly she would let you take both but I really don't know.

I took trileptal and it broke me out in a rash so I had to stop.

I took Elavil. I was prescribed it to help with sleep, and it helped for awhile, but I don't remember it doing much for my depression.
