hi, cf.

i am on pamelor (nortriptyline)= stable dose of 100 mg. I also take buspar 30 mg, Provigil 300 mg, and klonopin 1 mg.

The TCA's seem to have therapeutic windows above which diminishing returns appear. In 3 years I have increased the nortriptyline only once, from 75 to 100 mg, after starting Provigil and experiencing some insomnia and other sleep problems. The nortrip is definitely the antidepressant in the bunch- I have had no luck with trying substitutes for an antidepressant effect.

What I've heard about low dose norpramin (and nortriptyline) is that it works pretty quickly for antipanic effect, and for IBS, as well as attentional problems/ADHD (I felt all three within a week of starting nortrip, without a positive effect on mood). It did make me irritable at low doses (thankfully without aggravating the BS).
