> > > have you tried trimipramine for sleep?

I took trimipramine for a few months in an attempt to treat depression. I can't say that it helped with insomnia, as my baseline depression presents with hypersomnia. I took it in the morning. It did not make me feel at all sleepy or sedated.

> That was a nice compliment! Does trimipramine work for sleep for Parnate users, and is the combo safe?

The combination is safe, and might act synergistically with Parnate to produce a more robust antidepressant response. You will just have to experiment with trimipramine to see if it addresses your needs.

Can you list the sleep-promoting (hypnotic) drugs that you have tried so far?


> What about Parnate + trimipramine + quetiapine?

That sounds like an excellent strategy to help with both depression and insomnia. Trimipramine might not increase the time spent asleep, but quetiapine should. Trimipramine will, however, increase the quality of sleep by extending the time spent in slow-wave (delta-wave) sleep.
