Hi K!

>OTOH, if it's that weak why would it be used as an AP?

Trimipramine's activity as an AP has been disputed - it's a bit dubious. I don't think you'll need to take trimipramine though, doxepin is ok!

>Beta blockers are vasoconstrictors too, right?

Cardioselective beta blockers only weakly constrict peripheral arterioles. They occasionally cause cold hands. I have a friend who take atenolol + Ritalin with no problems.

>I expected that this might make me a little bit groggy, but not this much.

If you really do want to take a benzo, perhaps you could take Valium or Librium instead. I'm still not convinced that you need a benzo though! Doxepin is dealing with your anxiety :-)

>Then the point of switching to trimipramine would be because of less NE reuptake?

Yes, although I doubt it would be necessary. I expect you'd be ok combining doxepin with dex... you'd have to start with a very low dose of dex though and increase the dose gradually with careful monitoring of BP and pulse.
