Withdrawal from Imipramine

Last dose of Imipramine (25 mg) taken on Monday July 2nd 2012. Under a doctors guidance. Slow, very slow taper. Took 5 months, dropping by 25 mg every three weeks. Began experiencing what I think might be withdrawal symptoms since last dose July 2nd. Symptoms have been: Nose bleeds, Nightmares/Weird Dreams, Profuse sweating at night, Feeling flushed during the day, Headache, Feeling of malaise, Nasal Congestion, Nausea, Insomnia, A bit off, Flu like symptoms and tiredness. I've run these symptoms passed by doctor, but have not heard back from here yet. I was on Imipramine for over 20 years with the highest dosing being 200mg per day. Since Imiprmane is an older drug, I can't seem to find comprehensive information about withdrawal. I'm on day 9 of withdrawal and hoped the sym...

Imipramine paomate

I have been taking imipramine paomate for 30 yrs. for irritable bowl syndrome along with anxiety, weight loss, depression, diarrhea. This antidepressant has changed my life in that I have been able to go on with a somewhat normal life. It has caused weight gain, dizzness, blurred vision, overeating of sweets , and a feeling of legarthy since I have been on the 175mg dose. When I go think of the way I was when I started on the med. I am thankful it helped me so much but the higher dose of 175 mg is really to strong. I am thinking of going to a Dr. who would be skilled in these things and maybe help me somehow. ## What dosage were you taking previously? Why was it raised to 175mgs? Consulting a specialist would be the best thing to do, in order to get proper treatment, and a proper dosage...

Imipramine long term usage

I have been taking Imipramine for my panic and anxiety disorder for 23 years. I am now up to 150 milligrams per day. It is still working for my anxiety, but over the last year I'm starting to have weird symptoms. Fast heart beat (went to cardio doctor a few years ago and he says it was normal) heart fluttering, excessive sweating while exercising, facial numbness, body twitching, fatigue, dizziness. I also just turned 50 and am e o weir called big menopausal symptoms. I'm a mess!! It is very hard to find any articles on very long term I promise use. Anyone have any experience with any of these symptoms?? ## Like I think you said it could be very well due to menopause and/or a combination of your body adjusting to the tofranil with less hormones. I seriously doubt that after 23 y...

Body Pain Rebound Effect after tapering off of Imipramine

I had been on 200 mg of Tofranil PM for 30 years. I was tapered off completely in mid-January 2017. Am now experiencing body pain mainly in my stomach and back area. Feels like electrical shocks, and is constant. Could this be a rebound effect and should I be put on a more modern (less side effects) Tricyclic Antidepressant?
