Thanks for your informative note. I thought maybe you were Dr. Bob's assistant, not having a "Dr." by your name.

I'm not an atypical dep. case -- of those symptoms I really only have 1, fatigue. I feel worst in the AM, best in PM; and I'm not rejection-sensitive -- I'm less so than many "normal" people I know. I do crave starches but that started w/ the nortriptyline. For the first time in my life bagels taste like manna from heaven, and Wheaties are infinitely enjoyable.

I did take Parnate for awhile, but only 10mg. It may have helped marginally, and maybe I didn't take enough. Nortriptyline is the only thing (out of 12 diff. drugs from all classes)where I thought, I can really tell the diff. But it makes me both tense and groggy at same time, and I don't have the mental energy to do software work anymore.

Are you at U. of Chicago Hospital? I used to live in Hyde Park near the Museum of S and I; two of my housemates were med students there(late 1980's). I'm now in Boston. I miss the cheap Thai food, Harold's Chicken (get the hot sauce!), and the awesome modern arch. of downtown. But not the weather!
