Hi,

Isn't anhedonia a dopamine disorder? Or perhaps I should say a "lack of dopamine" disorder. From what I know (which isn't a lot) dopamine is the neurotransmitter most responsible for pleasure seeking.

By the way I definitely agree with your thoughts on the TCAs. It took amitriptyline 3 1/2 years to do what nature would have taken 30 years to do, that is, turn me from a young man into an old man. And an unhealthy, depressed, anhedonic old man at that. I believe that taking it damaged my cardiovascular system and stopping it damaged my nervous system. Oh yea it's a real winner alright!

I guess I need to add the usual disclaimer now. While this drug messed me up i'm sure many others have found it to be very effective and yada yada yada blah blah blah etc etc and so on an so forth...

Hang in there,
Paul
