Depends: You seem to have an understanding of the pharmacology of the medications. However, they have different mechanisms of action, and thus may have differences in used depending on what your doctor is working with you on. Suggest you speak to them regarding using a tricyclic rather than an SSRI antidepressant for best approach of the issue.
