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 am a 32 year old female; 1,7m tall and I weigh 52kg. I am on 2 x Wellbutrin 150XL in the morning, and 2 x Epitec 100mg at night before bedtime. I am really struggling with my energy levels, not feeling motivated, easily irrated/irritable and blue. But my sex drive is exactly what I want - at least I want and enjoy sex with my partner, which is important. Now I want to add 5-HTP and L-Tryptophan to my diet - maybe 1 capsule of each every day to a maximum of 3 capsules of each every day. Does anyone have any experience with this? I know Wellbutrin doesn't affect Serotonin, but does anyone have any experience with taking the 4 together? Or could my problem lie with my dosages and they must just be changed?
