    Depression and OAB-overactive bladder
    k112233 posted:
    I have OAB and I was prescribed IMIPRAMINE and told to take it at night because it does make you sleepy. It is a depression medicine but it does relax the muscles in the bladder. Has anyone heard of this medicine?
    magnusmalermann responded:
    Hi. I don't have OAB, but I did from 2004 to 2016 as long as I was on anti-depressants. During the day, I ended up urinating about every 30-45 minutes and at night every 20 minutes! Needless to say my sleeping suffered. Now that I am not on anti-depressants, my urination frequency is under my control and like it was when I was young--and I can sleep through the night! I hope these comments are relevant to your question.
    I have not heard about IMIPRAMINE.
    Best regards.
