> I've never taken a tricyclic, it has always been SSRIs. So, my question is.... do tricylics cause the emotional blunting that SSRIs do? The apathy and lack of concern, etc.? I would assume that they do, since that "side-effect" is not really a side effect, but the theraputic effect itself.

Strange I was thinking about this last night, and I concluded that TCA's do cause me to have blunted emotions, I mean I havnt cried for month now, even when Ive wanted to I cant! And Ive been really flat, people think Im being moody as I dont get pleased about anything. I also have a very short temper before things get on my nerves, I never used to be like that!
