I only lasted one day on amitriptyline. I was almost unconscious for 24 hours- couldn't keep my eyes open!! Dothiepin (Prothiaden) was bad too. Very bad dry mouth with these drugs. Urination was VERY difficult.

>Elavil, Tofranil. I HATED the side effects.

What side effects did you have?

>One did help, however, Surmontil, which I don't think they make anymore.

It's still available here :-)


I'm sorry to hear about your mother. It's strange how pdocs sometimes say that TCAs are more likely to induce mania than SSRIs and yet patients often find the opposite.

>About 2-1/2 years ago....

I'm surprised your pdocs didn't spot it earlier- it sounds like you've had some quite 'classic' manias as well as the mixed states and depressions.

>I think I'll stick with my 600mg lithium for now.
