> It's mentioned the most in an "ineffective" antidepressant throught most of these posts.

Trimipramine isn't a serotonin or norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor which is why it is such an average AD. It is, however, a fairly potent antihistamine & a strong 5-HT2A antagonist(strongest for TCA's) which gives it good anxiolytic & sedative properties. It has never had any real success because it has no advantages over other TCA's but has had one big disadvantage, it's price.
