I was prescribed this for esaphagus spasms. I've been taking citalopram for 2 months and have gained 6lbs and am not motivated to do anything. So that's going I'm the trash. I'm anxious to see if the imipramine helps with the spasms I'm hopeful it will help with sleep, and pain, from what I'm reading. But I absolutely will not keep taking if I gain weight. So, has anyone had that problem?
I have been taking imipramine for a long time. I find that initially it caused me to lose weight. I lost about twenty pounds. My weight after 6months of imipramine has pretty much leveled off. It does not make you gain weight. But it will alleviate the spasms and this relief may cause you to eat more.
