Re: So, are TCAs more effective than others, or not?

The data on this is lacking.

My hunch is that TCAs are likely more effective for certain forms of depression. Also, they may be more effective for severe depression.

This being said, individual differences can shape which drug an individual might respond to. So whether a class is better or worse overall, has little bearing on whether any given individual might respond.

Your doctor should not need data on this in order to do a trial of a TCA, if other drugs have not worked sufficiently.
