Yeah, I first got on nortrip as an augmentor to zoloft ... turns out the zoloft wasn't doing that much for me in the first place. Thankfully (or maybe not), I really can't say what side effects nortrip has on me -- I only know its fewer and of lesser intensity than what SSRIs do to me. As for how long it took to kick in ... well, I was trying to wash out of lithium as an augmentor when, after a week, I really started to crash moodwise. So, I started the nortrip a little sooner than planned, and it brought me back up to an even keel immediately. It took maybe two months before things actually leveled off higher than where I had been on zoloft+lithium. Again, another two months after easing off zoloft and I'm still functioning better on just nortrip and clonazepam. Some areas, I've seen some backsliding -- some OCD-like behaviors I have that SSRIs eliminated are back in moderation. I'm still seeing Ann Hedonia ;^) more than my girlfriend as well. So there's much room for improvement.

All the same, my latest soapbox here in Babbleland is how TCAs are as dirty for some of us as Common Wisdom would have us believe.
