> Intriguing theory. I've been called dysthymic and/or ADD, and like you have not found SSRIs especially helpful (other than a spot of Zoloft in combination with Lamictal). On three occasions I have tried Wellbutrin, and on each I have become radically depressed within hours of taking the first pill.

Desipramine because it generally has lesser side effects than its parent, and has more direct action on norepinephrine and d2 rather than serotonin.
