hi. the tca drugs are...perhaps not surprisingly...rather toxic. remember; the original tca, imipramine, was supposed to be a rip off of Thorazine. when tested in hospitalized people, the 'schizophrenics' got worse, and the 'severe depressives' got a mood lift...and about 1/4 of them turned manic.

there is one...i've never taken it, i don't know if its available where you live....surmontil. it is sedating, a later developed tca that somehow helps get to sleep and then doesn't produce the artificial, not so refreshing sleep of most sedatives...

and i think its more closely related to clozapine...i forget the specifics, but its supposed to be helpful for the more agitated depressives among us, less cardio-toxicity, wide dosage range, etc. etc. etc.

it also dawned on me...remeron+wellbutrin. the remeron could possibly help improve appetite, the wellbutrin is a relatively mild stimulant, one of the less apathy-inducing drugs out there.

is gabapentin an option? even on an as needed basis, i would think it might be helpful, particularly during the antidepressant start up period.

just some random thoughts. i hope things get better for you.
