Thanks so much Scott! I was worried about the sweating and the cramp thing.
Better today, only slight nausea and very little light-headedness.

One thing i thought of was that i really hadn't been able to eat much this last month, forcing it down when i did. One of the first things -beside 'darkness' subsiding- was feeling hungry. So the cramps may also have been just from my starting to eat more than i had the previous month.
I am just glad to stay on this drug for a while. I was in such a dark place, i need a reprieve-even if only a little while. Even reading my last post, just a few days ago i couldnt handle even reading the website information on the drug.

it may just be 'startup' kicking in but I was able to do work this morning, not as much of course as i would have liked, but i will take any little scrap of focus and energy i can get.

Thank you again very much for the quick reply.

(also, this is a re-post... my other post never showed up?)

> The first time I tried a tricyclic antidepressant, I couldn't stop sweating at first. I didn't experience nausea or cramps, though. The dizziness is normal as desipramine blocks the receptors that control the contraction of blood vessels. This should mitigate over time. Desipramine can be a harsh drug. You might want to go up more gradually. Actually, starting at 50 mg on the first day is a bit aggressive. They do make 10 mg pills.
