> It took a few weeks at 20mg for me to receive benefit from memantine. I think I was taking Lamictal + imipramine at the time. The improvement was episodic and lasted about two weeks before it disappeared completely.

Yes, now I remember that the effect faded for you. 20 mg huh? I was hoping for an effect at 5 mg - economics of meds acquisition. Very low doses are often enough for me. But from what you report it sounds like I should increase it again soon if I can tolerate it.

Hey, ya never know. Again, I can't recall if I asked (I didn't get that new brain for Christmas) whether you noticed SEs from it. I suppose we are both board guinea pigs for memantine.

What's your experience with tricyclics been like?
