A therapist suggested I try Imipramine for occasional anxiety flare ups. Said she used years ago as needed. Can it be taken like this?

Imipramine: It is rarely prescribed for anxiety in all of the hospitals I have served in, and I don't think it is generally appropriate for us as providers to use our own personal response to a med (both private medical information and just a one person case example) as the basis to advise patients. Please seek a second opinion from a psychologist or psychiatrist. Therapy such as EMDR is a better long term an ...Read more

What ssri is best for anxiety that would go w/effexor nd imipramine?

What ssri is best for anxiety that would go w/effexor nd imipramine?

Steamline, ssri: Is probably all you need. The difference in treatment for anxiety requires more robust doses than for treatment of depression alone. Effexor (venlafaxine) is an snri; it increases norepinephrine which could be fueling anxiety in the first place. Except in some exceptions, not good practice to combine multiple antidepressants as side effects become more likely. Discuss w/ doc. Hope this helps. ...Read more
