Elavil and SAM-e. Same chemical makeup?

Posted by bee on August 14, 2000, at 19:56:33

I have been going through the archives, reading till my eyes and brain ache! Can anyone tell me if the above mentioned two achieve the same thing?

Correct me if I'm wrong but Elavil targets serotonin and norepinephrine (a weak norepinephrine?), right? As stated before, this drug works for me to help me sleep, helps anxiety and depression.

What does SAM-e target? Hopefully if it targets the same as Elavil, I would like to try it. If not, I'll try something else that goes along the same lines as the Elavil; which could be doxepin, trimipramine or nortriptyline (ideas??). As stated in another post of mine, the SSRIs don't agree with me (anxiety, aggressiveness, insommnia).

Hopefully, someone more knowledgable in the field of drugs (or experience) will help me out.

Again, thanks for all and any input you can give me. If I can answer any questions to help you help me, fire away.
