well, that is just crazy and fascinating - an antidepressant would cause loss of joy? what the hell?
i am pretty convinced this is not the drug for me. i was given it for the fm pain and migraine prevention after trials of lyrica and cymbalta didn't work out. i was previously on effexor xr, and it could be i have to go back to that. but i never liked the way i felt on it. prior to that, zoloft, but again, never liked what it did for me.
i have had a rough day today with the empty feeling, but i still have my hope, so that is a good thing. i have faith that this new doctor really knows his stuff and will get me back on the mend so i can get on with my life. patience, i suppose, is going to be what i need to pray for, as i know any med he gives me will take time to have any benefit....
> Maybe nortriptyline is not the drug for you. You know I just read an interesting article about high norepinpehrine possibly being linked to a loss of joy. It also talks about beta and adrenergic receptors. Here is the link.
> Go to the section titled "norepinephrine studies," The 2nd paragraph in this section talks about anhedonia(loss of pleasure) and how high norepinphrine can cause it.
