    I am curious on how high a dose you can go on .....I'm not sure I can afford it since my husband is taking a huge 40% pay cut. I'm applying for aid in percriptions. I'm also on other perscriptions also.

    I hate the sleeplessness and the sweating does it go away the longer you are on it?

    I've been on a low lose of imipramine for years for pain for headaches, which is cheaper, and also has made me gain wt.

    Thanks

    I'm taking 120 mg. a day.. 60 in the morning 60 at night.. I think I'm on the highest dose they normally give. The sleeplessness left me after a few weeks.. the sweating is itermittant.. I had other side effects at first.. spacey.. tired but wired.. dizzyness.. headaches..still a few headaches but not so much.. I'm on my second month and I'm seeing some improvement especially with my hip pain..
    I have insurance so I'm only paying $20 a month.. but the bill shows $197. a month for this dose if I was paying full price.. I haven't gained weight on it..
