Has anyone found Imipramine helpful for anxiety and insomnia? Any input would be gratefully appreciated
It would not be my first choice since many other medications to treat anxiety cause pronounced drowsiness. Imipramine is actually known to produce insomnia in some cases.
Imipramine is good for anxiety. Ive been on imipramine for years. It also can help with insomnia. Imipramine and Elavil are two of the best tricyclic antidepressants. Imipramine is the generic form of Tofranil. Also, you may want to try 250 mg. magnesium divided up into two doses to help with anxiety and sleep. You can cut the mag pill into for your two doses. Take one in the morning and one at night. It helps me tremendously!
I have found so many meds unhelpful for sleep my dr just prescribed doxipan . Wish I could tell you the effects but lost my script have to wait til monday. Tried restoril ambien trazedone. If you also need an antidepressant rene ron has been the only med that was extremely effective taken at night of course.
