> I am using quite a high dose of both. (BTW, the max on Imipramine is 300mg's.) 150mg of Imipramine, and 80mg's of Prozac. These meds are right for me, and I can tolerate them, so my doc and I 'pushed the envelope' a bit. I am also on clonazepam, risperdal, and topomax. All seems very good so far. No "high" or "low". How are you doing? It is best to start out at a lower dose. as I have seen you do. Let me know how you make out!

Hi Jay: I'm up to 25mg imipramine for last 3 nights but its affecting my sleep (wake up several times during night) and it seems to be making me more agitated. How long have you been using the combination? Prozac was wonderful for me and when I first started taking it about 10yrs ago it was almost "miraculous". Kind of dramatic but seemed true at the time. I felt happy to be alive probably for the first time in my life. But then it just slowly stopped working for me and for the last year it just seemed I was getting the side effects without the benefits. I hope it continues to work for you.
