... sorry, just had to get that dig in.

Phil, can we back up quite a bit?

You're depressed, so an AD makes sense, but why are you on the ritalin and the klonopin? Could you be overmedicated?

I was on Z and clonazepam when I made the switch from lithium to nortriptyline as an augmentor. The transition started off shaky in that my pdoc wanted to off lithium for a few weeks, but after a day or so it became quite obvious I needed SOMETHING to augment the Z, so I jumped on the nortrip early. Things settled, well, up -- it worked better than the lithium, so we tried to back me off the Z a little (200 to 150mg) I still hadn't been on the nortrip all that long, and I had a nasty reaction to this step as well within a day or two.

The point of that little story is that you may need to give the nortrip some time to settle in. As I mentioned in a different thread, I'm actually trying to go off Z and, having been on nortrip for about 6-7 months, a drop from 200 to 100mg of Z hasn't phased me one bit even after a week.

I'm only on 1mg of the clonazepam, for panic disorder, and it's been a little miracle for me.

Anyway, I hope this info helps.
