Available in the form of a capsule, the medicine is typically taken one to three times a day. Although most people tolerate it well, side effects are possible and may include dry mouth, dizziness, and drowsiness, among others.
Prior to taking Anafranil, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information about any other medications you are taking (including nonprescription products and supplements) and any other medical conditions you have. This product is not suitable for everyone, and discussing these things with your healthcare provider can help him or her ensure that this is the best medicine for you.
