In reply to A follow-up on my meds for those interested..., posted by Bob on November 15, 1999, at 11:42:24

I was on Aventyl years ago when SSRI's weren't available. It didn't seem to effect my mood much, but I was more active socially etc.. I don't recall any troubling side-effects. I think I was on 75mg. The next AD I tried was Trazodone, up to 300mg. For the first few days I was sort of giddy and laughed inappropriately. This soon passed. One of the most interesting things I noticed was more vivid symbol laden dreams. These could be quite entertaining sometimes. I have given these dreams some thought and I think they reflect unresolved worrisome issues that perhaps I had suppressed from my conscious mind. I dreamed of tornados quite a bit but what this symbolizes isn't real clear, destructive tendencies, fascination with power, breasts?? There also seemed to be a secret or hidden happy place that reoccurred in my dreams. My brother had similiar experiences with Sinequan. You probably know the down-up side of Trazodone. I have tried most of the SSRI's and didn't tolerate any of them well and didn't stick with any of them. I tolerated Zoloft best and Prozac worst, Prozac was like strychnine to me, that is a very unpleasant stimulation. Wellbutrin wasn't to bad, but I dropped it because of general weirdness. Anafranil was weird too. Lethargy and sexual dysfunction were another down side to SSRI's, Luvox, Paxil. Whats the Klonopin for, anxiety? I tried it once and thought it was too powerful, I was zonked out for a couple days. What does NADH refer to?
