You might want to get a few opinions about your diagnosis. Notriptyline seems a bizarre choice as it's monograph indicates it should not be used in anybody with the possibility of even the tinniest hint of an aggressive reaction. It can make schizophrenia much worse.

As far as what meds to take, you may have to try them all, then categorize which helped the best. Something with a norepinephrine component (for the drive), and a weaker serotonin med, plus benzos. Remember, all ssri's are NOT the same.
I know a client who seems to be doing well on a combo of prozac and effexor. He uses both at low doses, whereas before he couldn't tolerate effexor.

IMHO, etc,
