I'm not aware of such an effect. Maybe you mean glutamate?

> I tried nortriptyline (Aventyl) a few times, and I eventually had a few psychotic, manic episodes. See, there is a type of mania called dysphoric mania, which is like taking a boiling hot shower just after falling onto a thousand razorblades. Most people think mania is some euphoric spending spree, having sex with strangers, type of thing.
