Hi Mary, I have taken both of these meds for several months (years-in the case of doxepin). You will get the least cardiovascular side-effects (like tachycardia and orthostatic hypotension) with the NT. I have found both to be helpful for anxiety. But, the NT worked better for me because it wasn't as sedative. Really sedating AD's and even anxiolytics tend to make me hostile (I have comorbid ADHD and BPII). IF you don't have MAJOR insomnia problems I would try the NT first. It probably would work the best with another AD from another class (because you don't need to get into higher doses and their related TCA side-effects). I found Celexa+NT to work quite well. Currently, I am trying Wellbutrin+NT+Zoloft (all in low doses) and it is working quite well for my ADHD symptoms and seasonal depression.
