The tricyclics are a pain, when you start them it kind of feels like your body is turning into a prune. Constipation issues, dry mouth, dry nasal membranes. Miralax works really well for constipation but in trials I believe it has not been evaluated for more than a year of use. Amitriptyline is probably the worse in terms of side effects, but one benefit is that it is very sedating for some people. Increase in ocular pressure is another side effect.

Thanks for the tip on inositol, I'm not sure how I missed that. I'm always doing searches on these topics.

Yep 600mg of Lithium is a low dose. I take everything at bedtime.

That's a lot of meds you are on. Do you think you need the depakote and the Lithium. How was your hospital doctor? I'm thinking that you were doing better but not really well as you seem to be adding instead of subtracting stuff.

I am not a big fan of the anti psychotics unless they are absolutely necessary. However, I can't argue with the fact that they do seem to potentiate the effect of ADs and that combination helped me over the hump.

I always let the doc I'm seeing know what I am doing even if he/she strongly disagrees. I hope you tell your doc about the Zoloft. I would just be cautious adding things unless you are really confident and have done your homework.

Anyway good luck, let me know how your appointment goes. I see my new doc at the end of the month.
