    Feeling drunk on Lofepramine

    Hello all - I was recently changed to Lofepramine after being on Prozac for a while. After taking only three 70mg tablets I felt totally \&quot;drunk\&quot; and had to be collected from work as I dare not drive. I was spaced out, giggling and doing silly things!! When I got home I slept from...

    Lofepramine 6 weeks in

    I have been taking these tablets for 6 weeks now, 3 weeks on 210mg. I actually feel worse now than I did before I started them. I feel very agitated, cant sleep at night as my heart is racing and sweat a lot. Has anyone else experienced this. Thought tablets would be taking effect by now.

    Have recently had dose increased to 210mg/day by my psych. as 140mg wasn't really making any difference.

    Used for 10 months now

    My first experience of antidepressants, and a positive one. I've been taking 1x70mg each night. Sleeping improved very quickly, and apart from a couple of days at the start with a dry mouth, no side effects I can definitely pin on the drug. I've gained weight, but depression suppresses the appetite,...
