    hi Frankie isnt imipramine anafranil? I was on anafranil for years and came off them to go on a newer antidepressant (SSRI Cipralex) While I was on anafranil I went down to 75mg which is a low dose for that medication and still seemed ok. The Cipralex seems ok but, I stopped drinking about 3 years ago and now I do go for a drink about once a week. I enjoy going for my drink but after only one or two drinks I feel so Ill and sort of drunk, but not drunk in a nice way. Doc said its ok to have a drink while on Cipralex and there is nothing about avoiding alcohol on the read up. But I never felt this way after one drink on anafranil. Anafranil is an old medication but I am thinking strongly about going back on them. Take care thanks for listening to me. Vernon.
    PS what dosage are you on?
