Thanks for the post. I want to comment on each post to keep people up to date, and to parallel each poster's comments with my wife's situation.

As I commented to Paxvox, my wife has been doing QUITE well for around three years, on these medications. No real side effects, her appetite has been great, our sex life is fantastic, and her mood has been really great with only very slight ups and downs over the last 3 years. She has been actively involved in social activities, our Son's school work and activities etc. etc. She and her doctors have been ecstatic that such a treatment resistant Depression has finally turned the corner.

Just in the last 6 to 8 months has this phenomenon of dieting to lose weight affecting her medication levels of disipramine taken place. Again, she is NOT losing weight due to the medications, and her medications have been successful for 3 years. Only when she diets does this level drop happen. And keep in mind, she is on a safe, slow, healthy diet (Weight Watchers) so she is not starving herself or anything like that.

Thanks again to all posters.
