  1. Sertraline standalone makes many people somewhat apathetic, indifferent and unmotivated, and that's why doctor Gillman suggests augmenting it with Nortriptyline OR alternatively taking Clomipramine standalone for the full SNRI effect... Did anyone here try both combos? I am getting back on antidepressants and not sure how to proceed... but if I had to choose, I would preferably go for one of the two possibilities.
  2. I've been reading the following articles: https://psychotropical.info/clomipramine-potent-snri-anti-depressant/ https://psychotropical.info/tca-intro/ https://psychotropical.info/snri-intro/ Seems to be a pretty potent drug: SNRI, antagonist of the alpha1-adrenergic receptor, the histamine H1 receptor, the serotonin 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C receptors, the dopamine D1, D2, and D3 receptors, and the muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system; so that speaks for itself.
  3. Hi There, I'm not much of a poster. But, I've noticed when you are trying to look up people's personal experience with meds, usually the reports are from people who have had really bad experiences, and so you don't normally get the full range of experiences. I'm assuming, the people who are fine, on certain meds, don't really post anything, because they've had no problems with it. Also, I wanted to post about Fetzima, because there is basically not a lot of information on it, so I felt like I wanted to share with the community to help others out who are deciding what to do. And, these forums w
  4. Hello there, I'am taking Duloxetine 120mg for Depression and Pure O (OCD) since Feb. 2017. Unfortunately, I still have intrusive thoughts and some symptoms of depression (low mood, no energy etc.), although I can handle my everyday life somehow. However, the whole situation is not satisfying for me and my family. I'm constantly tired, lethargic, grumpy, hungry and unhappy. So what's next? I've already tried to augment with Seroquel (300mg; horrible, horrible experience) and Abilify (2,5mg-5mg, quit working after two months). What's about switching the baseline med? Can I go back to S
  5. The med tinkering is driving me nuts. Anyone with me here? Sigh. I have had depression and major depressive episodes for the past 20 years, but I have only been doing the med thing for the past three years. I feel like I get so close to finding a combo that works, albeit with some intolerable side effect... and then I try to get the combo better and wind up making it worse. My latest foray brought back my PMDD crying/depression/irritability for the past week and I'm just at a loss of what to do next. My psychiatric nurse is pretty much up for whatever I want to try, but I don't know what to do
  6. I have ADD (on Adderall), and have suffered from depression for years. I have tried every med, but the one that worked best was Effexor. Problem was that I would get the withdrawal symptoms if I was an hour or two late with my dose. SNRI seems to be the way to go, but I don't want to be on Effexor, and both Cymbalta and Pristiq are too expensive (no insurance), and not available in generic. I am currently on Prozac, and was wondering if adding Wellbutrin would be a way to go. In other words, is an SSRI combined with Wellbutrin equal to an SNRI? Can I get the benefits of Effexor through the
  7. Hi guys, I recently switched doctors. I gave him a list of every med I've ever tried and my results. He said based on how I reacted to those that he thinks Fetizma will work better for me. My Celexa is starting to become less effective, so I want to make a switch. I'm just really scared. I tried to switch to Luvox from Celexa (stopped being effective) last year and it was a nightmare - Luvox didn't work for me and I essentially had no help for a month while my old doctor forced me to wait and see how it made me feel. I cried every day. Had panic attacks. Could barely leave the house. Then
  8. Something I've always been curious about. Shouldn't the norepinephrine reuptake feature be stimulating? It seems like drugs such as Effexor get more complaints of severe fatigue than SSRI'S
  9. I am a concerned mom. My 16 year old has suffered from OCD, Anxiety, and ADHD for the last 7 years. We were on zoloft for 5 of them and it worked well until she suffered a major depressive episode from struggling in school socially and academically. The academics surprised us for she has always been a top student in the hardest classes and suddenly she can't focus, remember things, or stay on task. They tried her on Strattera with Zoloft and it made her seriously tired and have a racing heart when she was awake. They took her off that and put her on Ritilin with did nothing. They then pu
  10. Does anyone have any bad experiences with this med? It's an snri or whatever and my psychiatrist told me it'll give me more adrenaline? or just energy? I don't know. Any success with this drug?
  11. Hi, this is my first post so please be gentle. I'm wanting some feedback on medications really, have you guys had any success with the SSRI/SNRI medications for OCD racing thoughts, anxiety, agitation, etc? If so which meds? I've tried a whole bunch (Paroxetine/Paxil, Sertraline/Zoloft, Venlafaxine/Effexor, Citalopram/Celexa) with absolutely no benefits whatsoever. I've had bad side effects from some but without a doubt ALL of them made me more agitated, restless, anxious and so on. As much as I believe I have a good doctor I am running out of patience, all he wants to do is switch f
  12. Hi all! As of lately, I've been experiencing some fairly concerning side effects, and would appreciate any feedback/insight that anyone may have. I'll try to be as concise as possible, as to avoid confusion (as though mental health isn't a freaking never ending puzzle with a piece missing). I currently take Effexor XR 75mg, usually around lunch time. In addition, the only medications I take are birth control (Tri-Sprintec), and the occasional GummyVite. I never miss my medication, nor screw them up. I've been on the birth control forevr, and on Effexor for about two months, since switc
  13. Hiya, First of all, I suffer from major depression, anxiety and sleep disorders, and ADHD and severe lethargy. Cymbalta worked great for a while, but then its effectiveness got weaker and weaker. I've since found out that I have developed restless leg syndrome and severe sleep apnea. I was off Cymbalta for a while, but have now been back on it for three weeks, and I'm hoping I'll have energy again soon. The thing is though, I wasn't 100% the first time I tried Cymbalta, but close to. My sleep specialist has prescribed me Strattera. There's only a moderate interaction between the two, so
