Dear Marsha,

> Do you think that a trial of imipramine now, after 18 intervening years of Prozac, Selexa, Lexapro and Effexor alternately would be of any use?

It is possible, but I wouldn't bet on it. I think I would go with the Cymbalta now. Like imipramine, it works on both norepinephrine and serotonin. My guess is that if you were to begin the Cymbalta as you are coming off the Effexor, your withdrawal effects should be reduced significantly. In other words, you would be weaning off the Effexor and titrating up on the Cymbalta at the same time.

Did you respond positively to Effexor in any way?
