Norpramin FAQ

Norpramin (desipramine) is a prescription drug that has been in use for over 50 years as a treatment for major depression, insomnia and chronic neuropathic pain. Recent years have seen its use for treating ADHD, cocaine dependency, bulimia, manic depression and several other medical or psychological conditions. Norpramin is a tricyclic antidepressant that increases the number of neurotransmitters in the brain. A smaller amount of these neurotransmitters leads to issues related to depression such as mood, sleep regulation, and loss of appetite. For people recovering from cocaine addiction, Norpramin has been shown to ease cravings for cocaine and lessen depression felt during withdrawal.

Users of Norpramin have reported building a tolerance to the drug. As with any drug, this can be an issue as increases in dosage or dosing frequency can lead to dependency and addiction. Once addicted, side effects, including vision problems, insomnia, tinnitus, muddled thoughts, lowered libido, nausea and vomiting can become more frequent or complicated.
