No sweating and no lack of nasal congestion. Heart rate is increased. Increased central body temperature and decreased peripheral temperature is spot on...


thyroid hormone levels are okay, although they weren't in the past....

I haven't tried anti-adrenergic agents yet... I wanted to try propranolol, but haven't come to it yet.

With drugs like Nortriptyline it's kinda difficult to distinguish the different effects: might be caused by NRI, or might be caused by anticholinergic properties, or might be caused by 5HT2 antagonism... f*ck knows!
