>What is interesting is that I actually had a panic attack (hyperventilation attack actually) inside the dream.
I'm sorry to hear that :-(
I have heard of tianeptine causing nightmares. I've never heard of amineptine causing nighmares but I would imagine that it is possible!
>I'm afraid to try it now though because of my reaction to Effexor (venlafaxine).
Was your BP normal when you tried nortriptyline before?
>Did Effexor raise my blood pressure because of its norepinephrine reputake inhibition or because of some other mechanism?
Possibly. Nortriptyline is more likely to decrease blood pressure because it blocks alpha-1 receptors.
>Come on over to Dr. Shipko's website if you haven't already been there.
I'd like to but I really mustn't- I already spend such a vast amount of time on the internet. If I go to a new site I will probably become addicted to it!!
Do you take the Xanax four times a day? Do you ever suffer from anxiety/withdrawal symptoms between doses? Do you have Xanax XR in Indonesia?
