In reply to SSRIs vs TCAs, posted by BrittPark on December 29, 2002, at 20:27:38

Britt, I used TCAs for many years till Luvox came out. I did try Prozac briefly, but after 6 weeks of constant nausea & no improvement, I went back to my TCAs. Luvox was the next SSRI to come out & I asked my doctor if I could try it.

The TCAs had worked for me but like you, I had a very dry mouth - sometimes so dry I couldn't even swallow. It was hard. My heart rate stayed at 110 & the constipation was very difficult to combat. For those 3 reasons, I wanted to try the SSRIs. Luvox worked for years but eventually started fading. It may have been my circumstances as life was becoming increasingly stressful.

Then I tried Zoloft (each time, I'd vomit as soon as I took it), Effexor (made me severely anorexic), then Paxil. I stayed on Paxil for a couple of years but am now currently taking Celexa, Provigil, & Dexedrine. In my case, Celexa has been the best but Provigil & Dexedrine have amazing AD properties too.
