This medication is given me wicked restless legs syndrome at night, even at 25mg. I feel WAY better though. My depression overall seems to be related to NE as I feel quickly better even on low dose nortryptiline (I have pain issues). However, I seem to get mild sexual side effects from NE drugs - more an autonomic thing I guess. Not sure what to do - pehaps I will cut it to 12.5mg and add a little bit of wellbutrin in the AM and hope my tinnitus doesnt get overly aggravated. It's too bad this thing screws up my sleep - I am definitely up sevearl hours after taking it.... And I wouldnt say the antidepressant effect is mild, but some of that might be sleep deprevation.
So is the general consensus to avoid serotonergic medications as they can have lasting post-treatment effects (poor sexual functioing, etc) whereas the others just have annoying tolerability issues. Or do the other classes have some concerning post-treatment effects as well?
