Effexor and Tricyclic


Recommended Posts

Being as I coudnt seem to handle  Effexor - Wellbutrin combo (oh so hyper!) my pdoc has suggested adding nortiptyline along with my Effexor(75mg dose) , 30mg nortiptyline, I havent heard of too many others taking  SSNI - TCA combination. The doc thought that 75mg of effexor just a too small dose by itself. I was on 300mg of effexor a few months back but it was just not right for me so we slowly lowered it. (The dreaded fornication dysfunction reared its ugly head and as far as it goes for me living without sex added more depressive feelings than ever.  Anyways are there others here who have used effexor with TCA? Curious

I was on Effexor and Amitriptyline, then Effexor and Remeron. Mainly because I couldn't get to sleep on Effexor alone. It worked pretty well for a couple years until the Amitriptyline pooped out on me, then the Remeron later on. But I'm bipolar so that combination was doomed to fail anyway. I think it can be a good combination.
