Today at the neurologist's:
Doctor: So at that dosage, nortriptyline can have some antidepressant side effects. You're not noticing any, are you?
Me: (confused) What would that even mean? Would I feel, like, extra happy?
Doctor: Well, no, it wouldn't make you happier, unless you already had a mood disorder.
Me: (confused stare)
Doctor: (confused stare) So... no, then.
I'm still unsure what an antidepressant side effect is. But if I've been more pleasant than usual please let me know; I should probably report it to my doctor immediately.
