Desipramine Update--hopefully not T.M.I.

Posted by Roo on August 24, 1999, at 7:51:37

Just wanted to give an update about my TCA trial...
I am feeling pretty good. I'm definately not depressed.
The first week and a half of side effects was HARSH and
difficult, I felt slightly ill--but that seems to have
passed. I've been taking 10 mg's of prozac along
with the desipramine and am slowly tapering off. This
will be my last week on prozac, and then it will be
just the desipramine. Already I have noticed things
are much better sexually. I have a lot more sensation
and it's not a major effort to have an orgasm. I am
guessing that it's going to get even better once the
prozac is completely out of my system....
The only problem that is still prevailing is constipation.
It's only been a little over 2 weeks, so I'm am REALLY
hoping that passes. I'm not sure about weight gain (I'm
guessing a little, but I'm also premenstrual so it
could be related to that).
If the constipation goes away, and I don't gain too much
weight, I just might have finally achieved what I thought
was impossible--mental health and a sex life too!

Woo-Hoo--Cross your fingers for me!
