Hi everyone!

I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this, but it has to do with bipolar rapid cycling that's induced by anti-depressants.

I'm seeing a new pdoc, and he's thinking of putting me on Tofranil (Imipramine), I suppose in place of the Prozac I take. I take the Prozac for my OCD and panic disorders, but he thinks it's responsible for my super rapid cycling: One major mood shift a week (into depression), and sometimes multiple mood shifts a day. I really don't know what he's thinking, but he told me to research Imipramine and see what I thought.

In addition to the Prozac, I'm also taking Lamictal, Valium, and Atarax.

Do any of you have any experience with Imipramine? I've been researching it, and I saw a reference to it sometimes being used for treatment-resistant depression.

Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks :)
