Effectiveness of Trazodone for Depression

I've recently been started on 400 mg of Trazodone for depression (high therapeutic end for dose). I've always found it fantastic for sleep at lower dosages -- 50 to 100 mg -- but my pdoc decided to try it for a depression that hasn't really responded to anything else. My only other experience with an a/d that actually seemed to work unequivocally was amitriptyline. After a few weeks it was like a switch had been thrown and I felt better than well, ready to take on the work. Then things got strange, but that's another story.

I'm posting because I do seem to be feeling a little better after being on it a few weeks, even though I know it's known for not being very effective as an a/d (sleep, yes, definitely, though).

I was wondering what anyone else's experience has been with this med as an antidepressant. I just haven't heard that much about it.
