Re: Can IMIPRAMINE  calm the Vagal Nerve?



I am 62 now. I took the Imipramine when I was 52. Anti-depressants do control anxiety - several of them are prescribed for it. Cognitive therapy is also important, so you can talk yourself out of an anxiety attack that may feel like VVS or turn into a faint feeling, and get off the medication. I did not like the feeling of being on the med, it was a little mind-numbing.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
