    In 1986 I was prescribed a tricyclic antidepressant, 75 mg Imipramine PM, to slow bowel function and to relieve pain resulting from ulcerative colitis. I was also put on 1 mg Lorazepam. In 1991 I went CT off both the Imipramine and the Lorazepam, resulting in a terrible colitis flare-up. After a few months I reinstated with success. However, these medications, and everything else I did for the colitis ceased work about three years ago, and in January, 2015, I underwent surgery to remove my colon and replace with an internal J-pouch, which cured the colitis. But that left me with the 30-y
  2. Hi, I'm a Spanish member who developed neuropathic pain in both legs during 2 months of successive trials with 3 ADs (2 weeks desvenlafaxine, 2 weeks amitriptyline, 4 weeks imipramine), during last December and January mostly. The pain subsided mildly but not totally after stopping them and now the pain is usually a 6 and a 7.5 during waves, I really don't have actual windows. I do take mirtazapine 15 mg and tolerate it well since 2 years ago, when it was prescribed to deal with very severe IBS pain. But the combination with the aforementioned ADs shattered my nervous
  3. I tapered of Prozac in early 2014. I tapered over 4 weeks by taking every other day so basically ct. I had taken Prozac for 17 years for anxiety and depression. It took almost 4 months to get very bad by which time Drs had prescribed me sertraline and citralopram both of which exacerbated things tremendously. I only took a single dose of each. It never occurred to me or Drs to put me back of Prozac and by this time I was too terrified to take anything. The last 3 years have been horrific, losing my husband, my health and my income. I was unable to work for 2 years and now work part t

    PeanutBuster: My story

    Hi there, Imipramine, Clonazepam, Cogentin are the drugs my doctor has me on to deal with the anxiety and aka that an antipsychotic has given to me. I’m worried the Imipramine (antidepressant) may be irritating the aka more. I’ve also been on Effexor, Pristiq, and Prozac since last summer tried them all for my anxiety but Imipramine seems to be the best so far. I know jumping from one to another is bad but they were not helpful. Clonazepam seems to be the only thing that is helping most symptoms. I’ve had people on another site telling me it almost killed them and is hard to get off. What to d
  5. I have been taking Imipramine since my late teens, and have been on it for the past 38 years. (50 mg., but sometimes 75 mg. for short periods) For a long time it helped in varying degrees, but seems to have become completely ineffective as of approximately 4 years ago. I have tried numerous times to get off this medication, but always end up going back on due to withdrawal symptoms. Each time, the withdrawal is different, but equally awful. I have been working on tapering down for the last 3 or 4 months and am currently taking 12.5 mg. This is my fourth week holding at that dose. I've be
  6. Hey there. I'm new to this. I am thinking about discontinuing my antidepressants. I am currently on Tofranil been taking it about 7 months. I feel like it doesn;t really help. and every time i speak with my psychiatrist she just ups the dose and i feel like it really doesn't make a difference, I really need supoort on what i should do or suggestions. thanks.
  7. Hi to Everyone on this Forum! I have been on Imipramine for more than 7 years. The dosage had peaked to nearly 110 mg at one time. Over a period, I started with Prozac 20 mg which is also my current morning dosage. The night dosage is Clonil 25 - this is supposed to be a very unique sub-product of Imipramine in high concentration. It is also supposed to help folks tapering from Imipramine and also helps to overcome PME which had surfaced last year. This is the journey so far: Week 1 - slowly tapered to 25 mg Imipramine Came off gradually from 110 to 100 to 75 to 50 to 25. Feel
