It's been pretty good S/E wise.
If wellbutrin is the only med that has helped you, wouldn't something like nortriptyline be better then MAOI ?
I don't know much about nortriptyline. In fact I don't really know much about any of the tricyclics. I've just heard such good things regarding the efficacy of MAOIs that I thought they would be a next good option. Currently I'm taking 100mg of seroquel and a prn of clonazepam of 0.5mg each night if needed. When I was on the Wellbutrin the seroquel was at 200-300mg plus 4mg of clonazepam. I really needed that for the anxiety that the Wellbutrin gave me. But it was excellent though for boosting my energy levels though. It does worry me though that there's this sleepiness side effect from the Nardil though based on what I've read in people's responses.
Honestly though I don't know what a good drug would be to ask my doctor about. In the past it was just telling them my symptoms, they prescribe me something and that's that. But it just always seemed like trial and error and I'm tired of this trial and error crap. I just want whatever I'm given to work.
