At the beginning of the year, the mail order drug co. I get my imipramine from, changed manufacturers (Lupin). I used to take a small green pill and now take a larger burnt orange pill. About 2 months ago, I started having occasional panic attacks while driving. The last 2 weeks I've had them daily. Is it possible that by switching manufacturers of imipramine, I'm not having the same results as my old green pill? My old pills worked great!
I was not familiar with your medication, but after reading up on it it seems you are having a bad side effect from it. Usually the only change in the generics are the fillers they use & it could be that is your problem, but since allergies can change during a life time, it's also possible you have developed an allergy to this med. I would contact your doctor immediately about this. I am listing below what I have read. Please read the side effects, Good luck to you...
I have just started imipramine, so I can't give you a definite answer to your question, but I did do an internship with a pharmacist who told me it was never a good idea to change manufacturers with a medication if it can be avoided because differences in binding agents, etc. can make a difference in the effectiveness of the medication. Did you have any side effects when you began taking imipramine? And if so how long did they last? I have only been on it 5 days but am exhausted all the time and wondering if this will pass? Thanks for any advice!
