I wonder if the betablocker could be causing this feeling as well. Depression is listed as a side effect. Do they make 5 mg nortriptyline? Maybe you could get by on 5 mg with no beta blocker?

> 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....
