Hi Bob.

> I may have missed it, but I was wondering how your switch to desipramine from nortriptyline was going. I remember you saying you were going to make the change because you felt you had gained too much weight on nortriptyline.

I have not felt well since making the switch to desipramine, presumably because I have been well short of my therapeutic dosage, which seems to be 300mg. I was underdosed for over two months. My doctor finally consented for me to raise the dosage of desipramine to 300. That was eight days ago. I am beginning to feel better, but I had hoped that I would spring right up and feel great. No such luck. So, I need to be patient and keep my fingers crossed.

It seems that I must still struggle to take the weight off that I had put on while taking nortriptyline. I think the Abilify is working against me.

Where are you at with things?
