low dose of Elavil or Anafranil for anhedonia?
Effexor has blunted my emotions and made me totally apathetic so I plan to start with Amitriptyline or Anafranil tomorrow as a augmentation to Effexor.
I reduced my dose of Effexor (225 to 150 mg) because of potential dangers of ss when mixing with Tca"s. I know all about nasty side-effects but i think that wont be a problem because i will stick with low doses (25-50 mg).
I know Amitriptyline is more sedating and it helps for pain and anxiety, but i think Anafranil should be better choice for depression and apathy. I hope they will also help with my fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain.
So should i try Anafranil or Amitriptyline first?
Nardil 60 mg - depression/social anxiety
Lyrica 300 mg - GAD,
Isopropylphenidate 15 mg or 3-FPM 10 mg - ADHD
