Of the tricyclics, nortriptyline works best for me. It improves energy and cognition, and brightens mood. Desipramine was not as much of a mood brightener for me. In addition, nortriptyline is relatively mild with respect to side effects. Desipramine is generally safe, but more attention must be paid to its cardiac effects. I find that the longer I take a tricyclic, the less pronounced are the side effects.

Have you ever taken a tricyclic before? Do you have any reservations about taking nortriptyline?

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.
