Started Imipramine 1 Week Ago

Postby dga28 » Fri Aug 27, 2021 9:57 pm

I started Imipramine for Depression and Anxiety 1 week ago at 25mg and am now at 50mg. I was taking it at night before bed but noticed I was experiencing restlessness making it difficult to fall asleep. Even after switching to taking the med in the morning, I am still experiencing restlessness. Has anyone experienced this or has Imipramine helped you fall asleep? How long did it take for the medication to help with Depression/Anxiety and at what dose?

I was on Imipramine and BuSpar years ago. It takes awhile to work as it is slow to build up and slow to leave the body.
People around me noticed the differences in my behavior long before I did.
It took about a full year for me to realize how much more stable I was. My brain stopped going into anxiety 'white-outs'. I could think and make decisions more clearly and responsibly.
Imipramine has been around since the 1950's. It has treated millions of anxiety/depression sufferers safely and improved lives. The side-effects should mostly normalize after a month or so. Give it time.
My side-effect was dry-mouth, but I was able to carry a bottle of water around with me.
Best of luck to you. :D
