Re: Nortriptyline or still Effexor w/d?

Cuz. Effexor had too many side effects. Wellbutrin pooped out. My problem doesn't seemed to be seratonin-related since nothing involving seratonin worked well (effexor worked a LITTLE, Prozac didn't help, Serzone didn't help, etc).

So I'm limited. Since my memory is lousy, I can't remember who it was specifically, but someone here suggested either Nortriptyline or Desipramine. Next on my list if this is a dud is to find myself a real psychiatrist instead of my hard-working internist, and try something like Zyprexa or the other one on my list BEFORE that which right now the name eludes me.

You'd never in a million years guess I'm very intelligent from that paragraph (above), would you? This is why it makes me nervous. For YEARS I've relied on my nearly-picture-perfect audio memory to get me through, and now it's ...well, erratic. :/

But the other person was right...I should give it a chance before I write it off. If I hadn't written Effexor off at 150mg/day, I might be better right now. :(


Thanks though...anymore input is welcome! :)

> I can't imagine why you have to be on such an old drug. Its well documented that there is cognitive slowing from some of the tricyclics. Ask your doctor to switch you to some drug with a similar chemical action.
