> That sounds interesting. Seems like no single TCA is ideal. I'm considering replacing 50mg of my Nort with Amitrip & then adjusting the Nort doseage with a blood test. I am currently taking 125mg of Nort & am thinking of going to 150mg. I have an order for a blood test here, but I don't think 125mg is there yet. I am still also taking 150mg of Effexor.

I was pretty impressed with what Effexor 300mg + nortriptyline 75-100mg did for me. Although, it proved impossible to find a single dosage of nortriptyline that produced a stable antidepressant effect, when I did manage to squeeze an antidepressant effect from it, it was quite robust with the Effexor on board. Good luck with it.
