I really can't say. It think protriptyline might exert both NE reuptake inhibition and a strong anticholinergic effect. I have a tendency to focus on dopamine as being the common denominator in my case.

I am profoundly sad to know this. The risk we take with antidepressants is a reflection of how little we understand. In order to treat everyone effectively, we need to think of each brain as having a unique topography that must be mapped before choosing a path to follow.
