Hello GCutter

I have never taken either of those 2 meds. I am taking Trazodone. I did a search on side affects for the Pamelor and I found this site here that might help you out some. Just remember nobody has all the side affects listed on any of there meds these are just possible side affects. I hope this link helps.

I have an illness, My illness don't have me.

those side effects are typical for antidepressants, if you think they are bad, have a look at the side effects for asprin!

pamelor is one of the older tricyclic antidepressants and usually not used much, unless other types of ADs have failed, it has a suicide risk from overdose

lexapro is one of many prozac type AD meds, finding the best AD for you is trial and error, citalopram is very similar to lexapro and usually cheaper

there is no best AD for anxiety as everyone reacts differently to them
