> 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.

Thanks man!

surmontil is Trimipramine... we've got it in Germany. It is being used as a sedative, but has most probably no antidepressive effects!? Very strong H1 and strong HT2A & alpha1-adrenergic antagonism. Somewhat related to Mirtazapine when it comes to function.

My biggest fear when it comes to TCAs is constipation and orthostatic hypotension :=D

Wellbutrin is an interesting drug, BUT I have anxiety and weight gain issues, so I am not sure if it's wise to take it :=D

Gabapentin, Pregabalin are definitely an option, but in the end the psychiatrist has to decide... O_o
