Well.... I must say I'm glad that you'd consider giving venlafaxine another go. It's not a first line antidepressant, as you know, but it does often have a role when SSRIs haven't been adequate.

If you don't think nortriptyline is helping much, and your current SSRI isn't adequate, it might be worth withdrawing both and titrating up on venla. It's hardly likely to be a miracle, but it could be more effective than an SSRI, and therefore worth the switch.

Do let me know what you decide. The fact that switching to venlafaxine could reduce the total number of meds being taken might appeal to your pdoc, by the sound of it!
