 4  depression More energy, able to make decisions, prioritize daily activities. Side effects-first week, dry mouth, dry eyes, disorientation, felt lost for one to five seconds when I turned more than 90 degrees. Increased empathy and ability to understand others emotional context. Later side effect, increased to point of discontinuing--hand shake- to the point I could not type or hold a pencil. Felt inability of heart to catch up with body's need when moving from sitting to walking. Complete loss of libido, but increased emotional bonding with family. Sense of humor returned, had not noticed its absence till it came back. Creativity way up. Left a stressful job and got a much better job with 25% better pay--interviewers liked me! Trycyclics have side effects, but I wish there were as effective an antidepressant without the hand shake problem. Later tried Prozac, Paxil, Zooloft with no appreciable effect on depression.

AMOXAPINE  (AMOXAPINE):  This medication is used to treat depression. Treating depression can improve your mood and sense of well-being and allow you to enjoy everyday life more. Amoxapine is a tricyclic antidepressant. It works by restoring the balance of natural chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Because amoxapine has some effects that are similar to those of major tranquilizers, it may work better in patients who have agitation or anxiety along with depression.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
