New to the board and looking for help with desipramine

Im new to the board
I was diagnosed with Fibro and CFS 3 years ago, I was doing very well up until a month ago.
My question is , I have been on a new med ( new for me old in the system) its called desipramine
Has anyone ever heard of it or been on it?

Im off ot see my DR today - I have been on it for 3 weeks and off work. Today is the D DAY were I am due back to work.

My problem is , I do find the med works for the pain - maybe I need it a bit stronger as it only takes away half of the pain right now ( which is better than nothing) BUT!!!! it makes me sleepy, a bit light headed and I cant figure out how I will work on this med.

Anyone know if that sleepy feeling will go away?
Any advice would be great !!!!

I cant work like this but cant be away from work much longer >>>>>>>>>>>

Hi Halle00,
I don't have any info for you, but I did want to welcome you to the board. I would call my doc and see if I could take a half of the pill at work and then the other half later in the day. Maybe that would help with the drowsiness.
