> Just rememeber that prior to Prozac, all that was available was the Tricylics (and boy do those suck!).

That's not true. MAOIs have been available since the late 1950s - they were in use before the tricyclics, actually.

Different tricyclics have very different side effect profiles. Some are easier to tolerate than others. Desipramine and nortriptyline are the most popular ones these days because they generally have milder side effects than other ones such as amitriptyline (Elavil) and imipramine (Tofranil).

We are fortunate to be living in a time when we have more options, though.
