BTW I am sure your doctor and you understand inherent risk associated with any anti depressent for BP patients. I have never tried imipramine or any in that grouping. Here is a warning on RX " Activation of latent schizophrenia or aggravation of existing psychotic manifestations in schizophrenic patients may occur; hyperactive or agitated patients may become over-stimulated; and patients with manic-depressive tendencies may experience hypomanic or manic shifts. Discontinuation of imipramine should be considered under these circumstances". This type of warning has always frightened me. Risk/Reward ratio not high enough. Take it slow.
