https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/the-british-journal-of-psychiatry/article/clomipramine-tryptophan-and-lithium-in-combination-for-resistant-endogenous-depression-seven-case-studies/F3A1B19433959744DCF32C36C7B4A28F# Unquestionably an extreme combination, but it seems to exhibit powerful antidepressant effects. Clomipramine on its own is regarded by many as maybe the most powerful non-MAOI antidepressant, at least in clinical practice and inpatient care, although the side effects can be quite rough, but combined with Tryptophan and Lithium it seems to be further boosted in its effect size and response rate. Maybe worth trying before hopping on ECT / MAOIs... One has to be careful because it is a small sample case "study", but nonetheless quite interesting to read. I encourage all those who have a view or experience to share it with us, regarding the aforementioned medications and especially the combination. Greetings!
I know this is a Tricyclic antidepressant and i was wondering how it has worked for you? I was thinking of taking it because i have OCD and i also have bipolar. So don't want it affecting my mood disorder in a negative way. What side affects did you experience? How long did it take before you noticed a change? And if you have bipolar... did it affect your bipolar at all?
Monday my mom came up and we were taking my car into the shop because the battery died. I thought we were coming right back so I skipped my Paxil 30 mg that morning. By the end of the morning, I was feeling super depressed. That night, I took what I thought was going to be a nap at 8:30 but slept through the night so I missed my second Paxil 30mg and Anafranil 100mg. The next day I was so tense and keyed up that I just wanted to punch someone- completely my fault- nobody else was doing anything out of the ordinary. And was still really depressed. I went to see my psych Wednesday and we added back Seroquel 25 mgs to take up to 3 times daily as needed. That's helped some but I was still bottom of the ocean depressed yesterday so I have been switched to Paxil CR 25 mgs 2 pills every morning. So frustrating. I was doing so well before this. Can missing meds for just one day cause all this?
