Hi Ed! :-)
I hope you are doing well.
I haven't tried the old school tricyclics since 1989, so it's been a long time. I think I have a problem with CYP2D6 not being effective enough at breaking down certain drugs like imipramine. It seems that every drug I've taken that is metabolised by that enzyme system has much stronger than usual effects. Even when I was taking Prozac, I only needed 0.5mg/day and I still had some powerful side effects in the beginning such as panic attacks, nausea and sweating.
I wonder if I was born with that flaw or that it happened later on? Perhaps I could try nortriptyline at a very minute dose. What I've found with SSRIs is that I have to take roughly 1/20 the standard adult dose.
