Hi again!

>Yes, but I could read that some persons find it "numbing" and like a knock out.

True :-( But I've known people to find Zyprexa a 'knock out' and Seroquel antidepressant.

>150mg (amitriptyline). And it does not seem to work anymore.

If the side effects were tolerable at 150mg, you could increase the dose a bit. Blood level and ECG monitoring might be a good idea. Cliffstone took 300mg amitriptyline!

>>I think it's a good idea to try Anafranil, but you'll have to come off the nortriptyline first.

>hmmmm will think about that.

I think it might be useful to gradually decrease your nortriptyline dose while you increase the clomipramine.

Btw, have you had your nortriptyline blood level measured? Perhaps it would help you to optimise the dose.

Kind regards,

~Ed
