> I just wanted to reply that all the SSRI's gave me the "numbing emotions" along with aggression, irritability and insomnia. I have gone back to the tricyclic elavil to get back sleep and calm me down. The downside to this is carbohydrate cravings. Currently I am on 60 mg. elavil and 25 mg. of nortriptyline (another tricyclic). I found that when I upped the nortriptyline to above 50 mg. I had problems with no sexual desire.

Thanks for replying. The most important thing for me is to get back all my emotions and thinking ability. Emotions primarly. I need to be more loving towards my fiance. The non SSRI seratonin drugs like Remeron and Serzone for example dont cause the SSRI numbing effect? The numbing effect applies only to SSRI's?

In your experience which types of drugs could be better suited for regaining intense loving emotions or just intense emotions in general? Concentration secondary.

And I do hope Remeron is approved here in Canada soon. It seems like a deffinete 'possible' choice for me if it's avialable. Of course I will strongly consider many other choices if the paxil fails to give me desirable results. Thanks for replying. take care
