The only reason i decided to give the Zoloft a shot was because my sister's been on a 25mg maintainence does for 6 years and she loves it. I figured we have the same genes so maybe it would do the same for me. But again i feel very little at 50mg except maybe a very slight lift in mood. But it's done nothing for motivation. I was thinking of going the dual action medication route myself. Either Cymbalta or Serzone or maybe even giving Effexor a shot because at high (really high) doses it also is supposed to hit dopamine. But i figured i'd rather take 2 seperate medications so i can tinker with them individually and see if i can come up with a winning combo. But the fact is i've never tried a pro-dopamine med. And even though i took Elavil a long time which is supposed to boost norepinephrine it's such a shotgun of a drug that it's hard to know what part of it's action is doing what. I mean if you read about most of the TCA's they mess with pretty much every neurotransmitter known to mankind. So if you had one neuron that was working before you started taking them you can be sure the TCA will find it and f it up...
