7 days @ 10mg
6 days @ 20mg

No improvement in depression.

It is getting close to the time when I sometimes experience an antidepressant response to medication.

It is difficult to evaluate sibutramine for anticholinergic side effects since I am also taking nortriptyline. However, the drug is not suppose to have any. My guess is that it does increase heart rate. There might be a tendency for an increase in anxiety, but that is difficult to segregate due to the personal issues I've had to deal with. There may be some reduction in libido, but it has not been abolished as often happens with SSRIs. There is no impairment in sexual function otherwise. Unlike SSRIs, there has not yet been the appearance of apathy and amotivation. Sibutramine seems to be a pretty clean drug.


nortriptyline 100mg
Lamictal 150mg
Topamax 50mg
Abilify 10mg
sibutramine 20mg
