    What is Anafranil used for?

    Do you suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder? If you have it, your doctor might prescribe a medicine called Anafranil.  Anafranil is also called clomipramine hydrochloride, which is the active medicinal ingredient.

    As it is a tricyclic antidepressant, Anafranil is able to help balance brain chemicals and remove symptoms like repetitive actions, thoughts and feelings. Besides OCD, Anafranil may be used in any other ways that a doctor deems fit.

    The working mechanism of Anafranil is similar to that of SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) even if it is a tricyclic antidepressant.

    How is Clomipramine dosage taken?

    Anafranil should be taken according to the doctor’s advice and guidelines. Hence, one should never take a larger or smaller dose than needed. The best way to take Anafranil is with your food as this can prevent stomach problems. It takes up to four weeks to get considerable help from Anafranil.

    So it is better to be patient and take the medicine exactly as prescribed. If you don’t see any improvement after one month of taking this medicine, call your doctor. Are you scheduled for surgery? If yes, let your surgeon know beforehand that you are on Anafranil so they can tell you what to do.

    To be on the safe side, don’t stop taking Anafranil abruptly as this can cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Instead, ask your doctor for guidance regarding discontinuation. If you miss a dose, take it the soonest you can recall unless you are nearly taking the next planned dose.
