Hi.

> I am wondering how you did on imipramine and the reason for d/cing it. Did it just not work very well or were the side effects bad?

Combined with Lamictal, I was only getting about a 15% response. I was taking 300mg. Physical side effects became tolerable over time, but it did cause some mild-moderate impairments of memory and cognition that I wasn't happy about.

> I was on imipramine a long time ago and did well. If Cymbalta doesn't work for me I was thinking of trying imipramine again but I can't remember what side effects I had then (1986-87).

Dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, sweating, orthostatic hypotension, urinary retention, tachycardia, itching, weight gain, and a few others that are on the tip of my tongue. Of course, it is unlikely that you will get all of them.

> I am hoping so much that Cymbalta works for you.

Thanks. :-) Me too...
