> Does anyone have any experience using this drug? I understand it is a Tricyclic. It is said to be good for lethargic depressions. It can increase energy levels. I guess side effects are somewhat similar to SSRI's.

Took Vivactil for two years and it changed my life. I did have typical side effects, constipation, dry mouth, but they seemed such a small price to pay for the relief it brought from the depression. I lost weight, started jogging five miles a day, received rave reviews at work, even changed my taste in music. I can't say enough about it. HOWEVER, I quit Vivactil to have a baby, suffered Post-Partum Depression, went back on the drug, and it didn't work. I have been on many other meds since then, but nothing comes close. I don't understand it, but if it works for you, stay with it. I would likd to know how you are doing.
