I had high hopes for desipramine as an adjunct (instead of ritalin), but it caused extreme sweating and rapid pulse. Strattera, the other common NRI, sent me into a depression so I didn't have any luck there either.

> Historically, there are a few tricyclics that have been used safely in combination with a MAOI. For me, adding Nardil to nortriptyline (with Lamictal and lithium) was magic. In the past, my best results came from combining a MAOI combined with a TCA.
> This is the thing, though. Combining a MAOI with a TCA that strongly inhibits the reuptake of serotonon is very dangerous. It more often than not triggers a hyperserotonergic state known as serotonin syndrome.
> alae is Serotonin Syndrome. Because of this, doctors favor using the secondary amine metabolite pf a TCA/ of the tertiary amine parent drugs (desipramine andnortruptulijijne that are produced from tertiary amines .e.g. nortriptyline or desipramine. These are secondary amines rather than tertiary. Each is the product of an enzymatic cleaving of the molecule. What's left can't touch serotonin.

Gosh. How the heck did my letters and words become so disjointed?

If you need me to rewrite it, please let me know.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
