Dear Dr. La Puma:

I have been on 50 mg of nortryptline, 22.5 mg of tranzene and 600 mg of lithobid(AD booster) and am unipolar depressive. When I first stared meds I could work out for a few months before having some sleep or relapse troubles. However, as of about a year ago (I am 37 year old male) I cannot work out without mood/sleep disturbance. I find myself starting to gain weight and workouts used to be my way of being proactive. I am not sure what med is causing the problem. I have hydrated well and even a slight aerobic or weight lifting regime causes dizziness, etc. It is like the side effects are increased. The only thing I can do is Yoga! So, my question is is there any way for me to find out i.e. a specialist, to see what causes the problem? I had a stress test a year ago and did just fine.
I am waiting to try cymbalta when it comes out in hopes of getting off the TCA. I would think if excercise helps depression, as it has in the past, why would it have this effect now? It has been very perplexing and frustrating. I have always had a fast resting heart beat so I don't know if it is cardo related or not. Any advice whould be much appreciated. Thank you
