> Hy Bulldog, thanks for asking!I'm doing really well on clomi, i'm beginning to regain my old and forgotten feelings.I have a lot of good energy, the good one - focused and calm .I amaze myself how i commit in doing things that I thought that made no sense for me being in an anhedonic state for so long.Now I live in a town near the mountains and here all the activities are phisical and I found the joy to involve in a lot of things in my yard besides my workouts.I feel more like "out", I have a new desire to enjoy nature and not to stare 10 h / day reading PBabble archives :).Clomipramine had/have an profound effect on my affect, it is the only ad which done miracles for me.It gave my life back, for now somehow crippled from so many years of suffering.I can't beleive that I didn't stick with clomi, years ago because it's side effects like dry mouth and initial sedation.So far so good, I take it for three weeks and i passed over the initial "3 days blip" which was a pattern for my initial response to various AD's and combos in the past.So for me, the ticket for severe anhedonia, anxiety and depression was an Anafranil.
> I have to add that clomi is the foundation on my combo, besides it, i'm on 30 mg of Remeron and 10 mg buspirone for a better serotonergic transmission.Remeron helps a lot with the slight anxiety from clomi and thru his antagonism it knoks down the bad serotonergic receptors.Alone, Anafranil gives me a partial remission.

Mood is better and actually no increase in appetite. If anything getting my binge eating under control. Have a desire to do more physical things but sciatica is still active after a winter of snow shoveling. So I do require pain meds to do activities. If the p-doc gives me the go ahead I would like to go up to 75 mg which will be the top for me.However having just starting 50 mg I think I still have progress to be made at that dose and let my body get used to that dose.
