Hello again,

As I mentioned above, I met w/my pdoc... We discussed the options, & I summarized the discussion in this thread, as well as gave him a copy of some of the posts in the thread.

He said that based on some rsch that he had done, he was thinking of imipramine or amitriptyline, and leaning toward imipramine.

So... any thoughts on imipramine for my case?

I had originally been leaning toward desipramine, myself... But after the feedback here, and my pdoc's input thus far, I guess that I'm kind of leaning toward amitriptyline at the moment.

Having said that, however, I have to say that I haven't done any reading/rsch on imipramine as of yet... (will try to do some of that later today).

So... I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on the relative merits / promise of the options currently on the table - which I guess would seem to be imipramine and amitriptyline... and possibly desipramine.

In addition to effectiveness for my symptoms (noted in my first post in this thread), any thoughts/feedback regarding the relative side effects? Sedation and sexual side effects come to mind first, though I know TCA's have others as well.

Thanks again for all of the input thus far - and I look forward to hopefully reading more!

Very Appreciatively,
