That said, I don't think Paxil is exactly famous for it's activating qualities. . .

And, in my long experience, there is some correlation to dopaminergic meds and alertness/stimulation. Sometimes it's very direct.

The difference btwn theory and practice? Sure, it's a crapshoot. . .but one might as well roll the dice in the *direction* of dopamine and/or norepinephrine. . .

> Unfortunately, no can tell if serotonin, norepinephrine, or dopamine is what a person needs. It might seem logical that desipramine (which works on norepinephrine) would be the ideal thing for you to try if Paxil (mostly serotonin) fails, but in clinical practice, another serotonergic drug has just as much chance of helping you after paxil fails.
