I loved nortriptyline. It was wonderful for severe anxiety, depression, and energy. Left me with appropriate emotional reponse, unlike the Stepford Wives Effect of SSRI's. Best AD I've ever had. Unfortunately, it caused extreme dryness and the constipation was becoming a real problem. I felt like I was becoming a prune - and I drink alot of water with the requisite electrolytes. I would have to say that it is not a sleep med, however. It gives a nice of jolt of NE which is quite smooth, but definitely energizing. Traz defintely has my vote for sleep, tryp for waking.

> If Trazodone does the job, then I would recommend you try Nortriptyline. Traz gives sleep via 5-HT2A & Alpha-1 blockade, Nort does this and is a good norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It would replace Buspar with ease, possibly reduce your Aderall consumption, fit in very nicely with Lexapro & add some extra antidepressant effect of it's own.
