> Thank you for this. The only concern would be postural hypotension.... since both drugs can cause it.

It helps to hydrate with a fluid that contains electrolytes like Gatorade. For me, the hypotension was worst at the beginning of treatment and mitigated over time. It was well worth the wait.

> Would it be possible to remain on vyvanse?

I don't know about Vyvanse, but I have tried Dexedrine along with Parnate and desipramine. There were no adverse effects.

I wish I could find the full text.

> What would make desipramine the preferred TCA?

I was making reference to using desipramine when weight-gain is a concern. For me, nortriptyline produces a better antidepressant response than desipramine. However, the first time I entered a period of extended remission, it was the result of treatment using a Parnate + desipramine combination.

> I know it is one of the most potent NRI's. Could low dose seroquel be used for insomnia?

I can't think of any reason why not.

Interestingly, high dosages of Seroquel result in a certain amount of NE reuptake inhibition via an active metabolite.
