> I agree with you. The big thing with the SSRI's was that they were/are thought to be safe, or at least safer than the TCA's. Because of their presumed safety they've been dispersed like dandilion spores.

> TCA's are considered by most pdocs to be superior to ssri's and snri's your absolutely right. But as you know they are "dirty drugs" lot's of side-effects and of course can be deadly when taking an over-dose. I think this is the main reason (the over dose issue) that most docs shy away from them-plus ssri's and snri's are much cleaner drugs..i guess. I also agree that too many docs hand them out like candy. Tofranil saved my life 25 yrs ago-my first severe episode of depression, i was really bad off, only got out of bed for nearly 3 mos. to use the bathroom and shower and was hospitalized for a week for extensive tests-Diagnosis: Major depression w/ panic attacks, GAD, and OCD- disturbing thoughts no rituals. I also took ativan which helped me greatly. I was on Tof. for 5 yrs. and it worked pretty darn good. Nothing however has made me feel as well as Parnate. Take care.
