Just wanted to give a little insight on my addition of this tricyclic AD.

I've been on 25mg for 2 weeks now. I am still on lamotrigine 50mg (reluctantly...my pdoc hates me for not wanting to stay on 100mg), Adderall XR 25mg, and Ambien for sleep.

So far so good. I've experienced none of the side effects that I've experienced with any other AD, antipsychotic, or anticonvulsant I have been on. I take it at night so the drowsiness is a non issue and actually it's a welcome side effect for me.

I seem to be happier and more positive in my everyday life. Since I've started I haven't had a "I hate my life" episode. Hopefully it is not temporary! This time around I am not going to let my doc push me to increasing dosage. I'll stay at 25mg until I feel like I need to increase. Slow and steady seems to work better than jumping the gun with dosage increases.

I'll keep this updated as I go on!
