Has anyone taken Anafranil for over 20 years? What are the long term side effects of Anafranil?
I have been taking this medication for over 15 years and it has been some help to my OCD and anxiety but NOT a cure all! I am concerned of long term effects of this medication. Does anyone know first-hand what are the long term side effects, pharama companies are not telling us? Asked by Rowena Glowinski 1 year ago.

Anafranil side effects Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anafranil. The most significant risk is that of seizures (convulsions). Headache, fatigue, and nausea can be a problem. Men are likely to experience problems with sexual function. Unwanted weight gain is a potential problem for many people who take Anafranil, although a small number actually lose weight. Side effects may include: Constipation, dizziness, dry mouth, impotence, increased appetite, increased sweating, indigestion, libido changes, nausea, nervousness, sleepiness, tremor, twitching, visual changes, weight gain, weight loss Answered by Burt Carman 1 year ago.

I took this med. years ago and got off of it due to the weight gain. I also am looking for something to get my OCD under control. I have yet to find anything.

Anafranil is a trycyclic antidepressent. But it's very good for obsessive compulsive disorder. The reason it's not used more often is because it's side effect profile is not as good as ssri antidepressants (prozac, zoloft, paxil, luvox). Keep in mind that luvox is the best OCD drug on the market for more serious cases. Answered by Doyle Fingerhut 1 year ago.

Apparently I have Bipolar II with obsessive thoughts (I am very stressed in one-on-one social situations and feel that I won't know what to say. I'm also afraid that I won't be able to do my work, etc). I don't even know whether you can call my thoughts "obsessive" but I don't otherwise know what they are. In any case... My doctor put me on 150 mg of Anafranil know but I still have to taper off my Cymbalta and start the Anafranil. I was wondering whether someone has had any luck with this? Answered by Abigail Manaker 1 year ago.

hi there my wife takes anafranil for ocd and has now for 6 years. she was up to 600mg a day, but now that she is combined with luvox she is down to 200mg of the anafranil. from my experience watching her i say that it is a wonder drug HOWEVER don't go off this drug cold turkey becuase you will go crazy about a week or 2 after stoppings. my wife kept doing that, she would feel good and think she didn't need her meds and would stop cold turkey and in about 2 weeks she would go nuts and end up in the psych ward for 2weeks to 2 months. the only negative side effects that she noticed was tremors/shaking of her hands, where she couldn't even hold a cup of coffee without spilling it. these were when her meds were at 600mg, and now that they are at 200mg her side effects are less mild. i find this drug the most affective for her, my warning however is that if your a female and plan to get pregnant tel your dr way ahead of time because this drug can cause very severe birth defects (my wife got pregnant and lost the baby at 13 week pregnant, our baby had no legs, possibly from the anafranil, although we were given a final answer on the cause). used properly i think this drug is good. hope this helps and good luck. Answered by Perry Pleau 1 year ago.

how to use Anafranil for sex to last longer in bed. i would like to know how to use it like wat time to take it before sex and wat to take it with. Asked by Darwin Vangorden 1 year ago.

Your best bet is almost certainly... By not taking anafranil! That drug anafranil is not generally used for that problem. It is an antidepressant. So, unless you are unable to perform in bed due to clinical depression, it wouldn't work. Also, the drug might *worsen* any sexual performance problems you are having, so it is a bad choice of antidepressant for a man with that difficulty! "Anafranil side effects ... Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anafranil.... The most significant risk is that of seizures (convulsions). Headache, fatigue, and nausea can be a problem. Men are likely to experience problems with sexual function" You might want to consider Viagra (sildenafil citrate) instead, ask your doctor. Answered by Jason Petrucelli 1 year ago.

I've been thinking about getting on Anafranil for my obsessive thoughts recently I've been on many medications such as ; Clonazepam, Lorazepam, Zoloft, Prozac, and Abilify. These didn't work in the way I hope they would I had felt like I'd act like a zombie, tired all the time, and loss of caring about the things I loved doing, if I wasn't tired I just had no energy at all. So I weaned myself off and I FELT a lot better I started enjoying life again and everything but recently I've been having extreme obsessive thoughts that are killing me honestly sometimes I don't even know what to say when I'm with friends because I used to be a really funny, random, creative guy and suddenly I lost all my skills and I just keep thinking about the normal : Not knowing what to say Everyone hates me or dislikes me All my sicknesses Can't stop thinking about things in general Obsessive Hypochondriac Worrying about money, parents, and family Everyone is against me Then I found Anafranil on the internet as a antiobesssive. I'm not trying any more SSRI's because they give me most of these feelings. I'm just trying to be myself again and act like myself. Recently I've been very tired, unwilling to talk that much, and obsessively thinking non stop about the things I mentioned up there. I recently started exercising and being really social I take vitamins Omega 3-6-9, B12, B6, and One A Days (Teen Advantage). I still have no energy and I seem to be a LITTLE depressed not like I was before. I'm 16 weighing at 144.4 pounds exact I just weighed myself, I'm around 5'8. Everything has been going good for me recently I got a girlfriend, best friends, and a new house that's very nice in a couple of months. I should be excited and happy but I feel like I'm too tired to have any of those emotions. Someone help please. Answered by Alisha Helferty 1 year ago.

Anafranil is a perfectly good med... it isn't used much these days but only because it was eclipsed by so many "new" meds that are no better. I used to see it used, with good success, a great deal in the late 80s and early 90s. It's a worthwhile consideration. Answered by Margery Irizary 1 year ago.

The disturbing thoughts or images are called obsessions, and the rituals that are performed to try to prevent or dispel them are called compulsions. There is no pleasure in carrying out the rituals you are drawn to, only temporary relief from the discomfort caused by the obsession. Most adults with this condition recognize that what they’re doing is senseless, but they can’t stop it. Some people, though, particularly children with OCD, may not realize that their behavior is out of the ordinary. Signs and symptoms of Obsessive-compulsive disorder may vary on an individual basis for each patient. Only your doctor can provide adequate diagnosis of any signs or symptoms and whether they are indeed Obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms. Take care as always............. Answered by Jeramy Ivancevic 1 year ago.

Believe me, I'm not being facetious, but have you watched any movies on TV recently about SBS? It or they could have well affected you. I'm no psychiatrist, but I have suffered from depression. I'm not familiar with the drug Lexapro, but go back to the doctor who prescribed it and tell him what's happened. Was he a psych doctor? If not, I'd go and find one. There's usually a psych unit at your local hospital, If not, they'll be able to recommend someone. Hope this helps, Best wishes, Mike Answered by Jeramy Corrieri 1 year ago.


Does anyone know what is the maximum anafranil dosage for ocd resistant patients?
i am on 200mg of zoloft, and three weeks ago i started anafranil and i gradually increased it to 225mg. But so far my ocd isnt going down. I once heard anafranil could be taken up to 600 mg but i am not sure, please someone help Asked by Halina Shepard 1 year ago.

Take the anafranil (clomipramine) with meals in divided doses at first. It should be started at 25mg and increased weekly (titration). The maximum dose should stay at 250 mg (200 for adolescents) and should be taken at bedtime. Every time you increase the dosage, it takes 2-3 weeks to get the full benefit. At higher doses anafranil can cause seizures. 0.64% have seizures at 300mg/day, so proceed slowly. Anafranil is an antiobsessional drug of the dibenzazepine class known as tricyclic antidepressants. Answered by Vasiliki Zimmerli 1 year ago.

8 mg. of xanax an afternoon is the traditional dose for somebody with severe stress. you notice the two mg. pill purely lasts 4 hours, so then they could desire to take yet another 4 hours later. Now in the adventure that your mom is taking to a lot of her medicine at as quickly as, or combining them with alcohol, this is while it quite is risky. it quite is easily a intense dosage, besides the undeniable fact that it quite is no longer out of the traditional variety. additionally, psychiatrists are many times out of the malpractice courtroom situations. Or they are many times proof against them via fact they are dealing with risky human beings. Answered by Christoper Henson 1 year ago.

I never took wellbutrin, but my doctor said it doesn't weaken your LIBIDO, LIB ID O, the way the Beach Boys referred to it. A much cooler sound Lib id o, vs. La bee do.

I recently started exercising and being really social I take vitamins Omega 3-6-9, B12, B6, and One A Days (Teen Advantage). I still have no energy and I seem to be a LITTLE depressed not like I was before. I'm 16 weighing at 144.4 pounds exact I just weighed myself, I'm around 5'8. Everything has been going good for me recently I got a girlfriend, best friends, and a new house that's very nice in a couple of months.

Anafranil is a perfectly good med... it isn't used much these days but only because it was eclipsed by so many "new" meds that are no better. I used to see it used, with good success, a great deal in the late 80s and early 90s. It's a worthwhile consideration. Answered by Eden Krudop 1 year ago.

The disturbing thoughts or images are called obsessions, and the rituals that are performed to try to prevent or dispel them are called compulsions. There is no pleasure in carrying out the rituals you are drawn to, only temporary relief from the discomfort caused by the obsession. Most adults with this condition recognize that what they’re doing is senseless, but they can’t stop it. Some people, though, particularly children with OCD, may not realize that their behavior is out of the ordinary. Signs and symptoms of Obsessive-compulsive disorder may vary on an individual basis for each patient. Only your doctor can provide adequate diagnosis of any signs or symptoms and whether they are indeed Obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms. Take care as always.............

Does anyone know what is the maximum anafranil dosage for ocd resistant patients?
i am on 200mg of zoloft, and three weeks ago i started anafranil and i gradually increased it to 225mg. But so far my ocd isnt going down. I once heard anafranil could be taken up to 600 mg but i am not sure, please someone help Asked by Bradley Heinzmann 1 year ago.

Take the anafranil (clomipramine) with meals in divided doses at first. It should be started at 25mg and increased weekly (titration). The maximum dose should stay at 250 mg (200 for adolescents) and should be taken at bedtime. Every time you increase the dosage, it takes 2-3 weeks to get the full benefit. At higher doses anafranil can cause seizures. 0.64% have seizures at 300mg/day, so proceed slowly. Anafranil is an antiobsessional drug of the dibenzazepine class known as tricyclic antidepressants.

Has anyone taken Anafranil for over 20 years? What are the long term side effects of Anafranil?
I have been taking this medication for over 15 years and it has been some help to my OCD and anxiety but NOT a cure all! I am concerned of long term effects of this medication. Does anyone know first-hand what are the long term side effects, pharama companies are not telling us? Asked by Kecia Vivian 1 year ago.

Anafranil side effects Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible.

Anafranil is a trycyclic antidepressent. But it's very good for obsessive compulsive disorder. The reason it's not used more often is because it's side effect profile is not as good as ssri antidepressants (prozac, zoloft, paxil, luvox). Keep in mind that luvox is the best OCD drug on the market for more serious cases. Answered by Leona Supernaw 1 year ago.

I would love to hear about other people's experiences of Anafranil. Apparently I have Bipolar II with obsessive thoughts (I am very stressed in one-on-one social situations and feel that I won't know what to say. I'm also afraid that I won't be able to do my work, etc). I don't even know whether you can call my thoughts "obsessive" but I don't otherwise know what they are. In any case... My doctor put me on 150 mg of Anafranil know but I still have to taper off my Cymbalta and start the Anafranil. I was wondering whether someone has had any luck with this? Answered by Alexander Haupert 1 year ago.

hi there my wife takes anafranil for ocd and has now for 6 years. she was up to 600mg a day, but now that she is combined with luvox she is down to 200mg of the anafranil. from my experience watching her i say that it is a wonder drug HOWEVER don't go off this drug cold turkey becuase you will go crazy about a week or 2 after stoppings. my wife kept doing that, she would feel good and think she didn't need her meds and would stop cold turkey and in about 2 weeks she would go nuts and end up in the psych ward for 2weeks to 2 months. the only negative side effects that she noticed was tremors/shaking of her hands, where she couldn't even hold a cup of coffee without spilling it. these were when her meds were at 600mg, and now that they are at 200mg her side effects are less mild. i find this drug the most affective for her, my warning however is that if your a female and plan to get pregnant tel your dr way ahead of time because this drug can cause very severe birth defects (my wife got pregnant and lost the baby at 13 week pregnant, our baby had no legs, possibly from the anafranil, although we were given a final answer on the cause). used properly i think this drug is good. hope this helps and good luck.

how to use Anafranil for sex to last longer in bed. i would like to know how to use it like wat time to take it before sex and wat to take it with. Asked by Jesusa Rollins 1 year ago.

Your best bet is almost certainly... By not taking anafranil! That drug anafranil is not generally used for that problem. It is an antidepressant. So, unless you are unable to perform in bed due to clinical depression, it wouldn't work. Also, the drug might *worsen* any sexual performance problems you are having, so it is a bad choice of antidepressant for a man with that difficulty! "Anafranil side effects ... Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anafranil.... The most significant risk is that of seizures (convulsions). Headache, fatigue, and nausea can be a problem. Men are likely to experience problems with sexual function" You might want to consider Viagra (sildenafil citrate) instead, ask your doctor. Answered by Claris Blem 1 year ago.
