    I was given desipramine to try to reduce acute depression. Only after 2 weeks did I start to improve. HOWEVER, I can NOT recommend this med -- when I tried to reduce the dosage, I experienced severe migraine headaches which totally wiped me out.

    I stopped taking 10mg of Norpramine in the fall as my depression was better. I recently was prescribed it again. I had tingly sensations in my finger tips and my severe constipation returned. The constipation was so bad it woke me up at night and kept me awake. I stopped taking it, but still take two other meds for my depression and anxiety.

    Have taken for 20+ years. Started taking after dignosed with Epstein Barr and depression. Works well. About twice a year for some reason I go through a week to ten days of mild depression, but over all it works for me. Tried the generic to save money, not as effective. Tried a newer drug some years back on new doctor's recommendation with bad experience, went back to norpramin. Old rule, " ... Show Full Comment

    It works really great since I have been on almost 90% of depression meds and this it the only one that works. The down side is I sweat buckets all day. I have few choices in meds so I have to deal with the constant sweating and it is terrible.
