> was Clomipramine at least less emotionally numbing?
It sure was (less emotionally numbing). Another thing I didn't mention though, was that the noradrenergic effect made me edgy sometimes. I have that with all NRI's, I think.
> i'm trying to find a balance between more executive functioning without turning up the anxiety-dial.
Yeah, I recognize it. We're really stuck between a rock and a hard place, since stimulation usually comes with extra anxiety, while anxiety relief often comes with apathy or flatness.
>i was considering the really low SRI prozac dose discussed here (5mg) if Parnate doesn't work, since higher gave me insomnia. could i expect very little anxiety relief at that dose?
Well, 5HT2C-antagonism is supposed to bring some anxiety relief.
