... drugs have caused awful side effects. I took 10 mg for a week, and now am taking 20 mg. The pain remains, and I'm still depressed. Perhaps I need a higher dose and/or give it more time. But I noticed my hearing was having a problem, and tonight there's a really nasty buzzing going on in my ears. Has anyone else had this problem - does it last?
I was prescribed imipramine for depression/anxiety and pain. I have trigeminal neuralgia, and newer?

It will take at least three to four weeks for the imipramine to help with your depression or anxiety. You may need to increase your dosage before then. Please give the imipramine a chance to help you. You can let me know how you are feeling and if the imipramine helps you. I have been taking it at a higher dosage since August and I can say it is helping my depression. hang in there... manager 5
hookinhand; here is the side effects that are what you are getting and they are under the part that says to let the doctor know if these are to happen.So as soon as you can let your doctor know about these here is the copy and paste of the list of side effects.((((You should check *****with your doctor immediately if any of these side effects occur when taking imipramine:
******************************** THESE ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS YOU MENTIONED************
Incidence not known
Abdominal or stomach pain
burning, crawling, itching, numbness, prickling, "pins and needles", or tingling feelings
chest pain or discomfort
confusion about identity, place, and time
continuing ringing or buzzing or other unexplained noise in the ears*****************
cough or hoarseness
decrease in the frequency of urination
difficulty in passing urine (dribbling)
dizziness,*********** faintness, or lightheadedness when getting up suddenly from a lying or sitting position Chuck1957
Pretty much what everyone else said but I thought I would add that it might not be helping your anxiety/depression because the usual starting dose to treat them is 50-100mg and can be up by doctor when needed oh and most ad meds take a extended period of taking them to take effect
