    I've read that imipramine can help. I used to take it years ago for depression and it helped me a lot.

    I'm wondering if anyone here has tried it, and if it helps with the sleep, anxiety, etc.

    I am more inclined to take that then the effexor the dr prescribed.

    Thanks,

    I took imimpramine a several years ago for depression. I had the doctor take me off of it because I felt as though it could become habit forming. I say that because of the side effects I would have when I stopped taking it, headache, nausea, mood swings, ect. My sister also had the same problems when she took it and had her doctor take her off of it too. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...but that's just judging from my experience. Others may have found it beneficial.
