Re: Desipramine (Norpramin) best TCA for ADHD?

For some reason I thought the newly approved/released ADHD drug "Qelbree" (Viloxazine) was a tricyclic.

Checking again I'm wrong, but I figured I'd mention it anyway as it's not a typical ADHD medicine being an SNRI. It's a drug that was originally markeded for depression, discontinued, and now repurposed as an ADHD medication.

As for desipramine, I tried to add it to my Marplan/Lamictal cocktail a few months back but couldn't tolerate it. Even a super low dose (10-25mg) caused tachycardia and extreme sweating/overheating.

I do think it helped w/ mood/drive though but I was only on it for a couple of weeks.
