clomipramine vs imipramine: sedative effects

Posted by schleprock on August 27, 2012, at 17:44:18

Is imipramine less sedative than clomipramine? I think I've heard that it's milder in side affects. I'm on day 4 of an attempt to cross taper 150mg of Nortriptyline w/ 25mg of clomipramine and was extremely drowsy (and anxious) the entire day so far. I just don't think this is going to work. (Can't imagine what 50mg will be like, let alone an equivelant dose to my nortriptyline.) If impramine has similar benefits, but less of the sedation, I might think about giving it a try. (I need something for anxiety\depression, not OCD)

Better yet would be any suggestions about adding a slight serotonon boost to my current dosage of nortriptyline (preferably not involving an SSRI, and certainly not a complete switch to one.)
