(Less AD props would be nice, though. Ami makes me into a grizzly bear over 20 mgs.) Perhaps I misread. If you don't mind, can you elaborate on trimiprimine? ANd I will do some investigating myself.

It was a flowchart for treatment of bipolar disorder and it recommended trimipramine to treat *insomnia* I believe for breakthrough hypomania or mania in addition or instead of a benzo (I think). Somebody else might know which "flowchart" I am thinking of. You can't get generic from what I understand. It is Surmontil. I might do some more browsing about it. I am going to check the monograph on it.

Mitch,
Thanks for the links. I did some searches on Google too. Not a ton of info on this particular TCA...That I can find (in my messed up state). But hopefully I am starting to come out of this mood.

I did send a email to the pdoc about Trimip. I basically outlined what you said. I am not really hopeful that she will go for this change. I wonder if she is familiar with Trimip...
Geez, I hope at least she answers me! That would be decent and helpful.

Thanks a million
Chloe
