Who should not take imipramine?

Children and teens age 18 and younger should not use imipramine pamoate because of the increased risk for certain side effects. Women who are breastfeeding should not use this medication because it can pass into the breast milk. Adults with severe kidney or liver disease shouldn’t use imipramine pamoate. Caution should be used when prescribing imipramine pamoate to an older adult with a history of heart disease due to an increased risk for other heart problems.

Anyone allergic to imipramine pamoate shouldn’t use it. People who have recently, within the last 14 days, taken an MAO inhibitor shouldn’t use imipramine pamoate. Using both types of drugs within two weeks of each other can cause life-threatening health complications.
