Re: Switch to Amitriptyline

I was on 25mg of sertraline (Zoloft), 30mg of buspirone (Buspar) and bits of amitriptyline and imipramine, (plus starting up Neurontin - currently taking 600mg).

I have now upped the amitriptyline to 50mg - slowly, to adjust to the antihistaminergic sedation - and I feel great. This combo appears to both calm me down and give me motivation and energy, even boosting my libido.

I think it's the combination of SRI (sertraline+amitriptyline), 5HT1A-agonism (buspirone) and 5HT2A/C-antagonism (amitriptyline) that accounts for this succes (cf. Steven Stahl).

Although it's really too early to call it a success.. I sure hope I'll stay cool on this combo!

Wishing you luck too, Linkadge. As far as I can tell now, amitriptyline is a great med - at least for me.
