> Hi SJ. How long have you been with the Vivactil, and what dose?

Thanks, John. I began taking 5 mg about 2 weeks ago. I can find very little information about this drug, although I recall my doctor mentioning it was similar to Zoloft. I decided to try it because of the activating effects.

Zoloft didn't do much for me, so perhaps this is why Vivactil doesn't seem to help with my depression. I do like the extra energy, though. I'm afraid to increase the dose because of the risk that it would cause worse insomnia and/or depression. I already take 40 mg celexa and 2000 mg neurontin.

I never can tell anymore what causes me to feel the way I do. Sometimes I do wonder if the meds make it worse--it seems like I've tried so many. Some of them obviously seem to work, but then I always start to feel like there's no point anymore to life. It just feels like a jail sentence or something.....

you can tell I've had a bad day. It'll be better tomorrow...
