Thought I'd get some info by opening new post about tricyclics for depression. I have Major Depression (Atypical). I have used Prozac for over 10yrs but its stopped working for me. Tried augmenting with Wellbutrin but that caused more agitation. My pdoc wants me to try Imipramine. I'd appreciate any information.

Hi: I just tapered off Prozac completely so am on nothing right now. Its been 5 wks. I did try augmenting with Wellbutrin, Buspar and Lamictal. The Wellbutrin and Lamictal both caused more agitation and the Buspar did nothing. I appreciate your responding.
