    Anafranil for Depression

    I have been suffering from severe depression with post-traumatic stress disorder for 12 years and have successfully been successfully treated with Anafranil ampoules for 6 weeks in 2003 with no apparent side effects. In further episodes, I have achieved good results with Trevilor, but had to take beta blocker and blood pressure lowering agent until today.

    Side effects: High blood pressure

    Anafranil for Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    At the age of 14-16 I took anafranil in high doses as part of a therapeutic treatment. The side effects included difficulty concentrating, depression, severe hair loss, weight loss, fatigue and blockage of the normal thinking process. After discontinuation of the drug first successes of the therapy were visible. Not recommended.

    Anafranil for Depression

    since I take the drug especially suffering from fatigue, lack of concentration and gedaechtnissprobleme, but also slight incontinence. Nevertheless, I am very happy that I do not have to live without, because otherwise I was very sociable, sentimental and easily irritable. In the meantime, I tried to sell anafranil, which was followed by severe circulatory and perceptual disturbances. By the way, I am a teenager and belong to a group of patients that is not recommended. My doctor said I should still try it, for which I’m grateful to him.

    Anafranil for Depression

    Initial side effects, e.g. Dry mouth, low blood pressure, constipation, etc. were missing. The first 3 weeks noticeable improvement in depressive symptoms. As a long-term medication rather unsatisfactory, since in the course of time no improvement felt. Essential for acute stages of the disease very well, but in the long term satisfactory.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Anafranil for Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    At the beginning of treatment with Anafranil, there were initial difficulties, I was on the drug in the clinic set and since I had a panic disorder, was started with 25 mg. The first day was a catastrophe, high blood pressure fluctuations, tachycardia, tremors, circulatory problems, nightmares, drowsiness and cognitive disorders. The next day it got much better, on the 5th day the first increase to 50 mg, again I reacted so strongly to the drug, because the side effects were much better the following day, that was also acceptable. Some time later, I was retarded at 150 mg and the further increases were less problematic. I have been taking the medication for some time now, the constant tachycardia, heavy sweats, hot flashes and dry mouth died after a week. With the blood pressure / circulatory problems, I have to live well, as well as with occasional shaky hands, increased sweating, slight mood swings and constipation. Anafranil helps a lot, I can only recommend this medicine! Because of the depression I could not do anything anymore, I could not eat, just sleep and I did not get any clear until the evening, plus the bad panic attacks and the constant fear. Since I live now like with these relatively harmless side effects. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder was also successfully treated with Anafranil 15 years ago. I still have a slight control compulsion, but I have a good grip.

    I have been taking Anafranil (chlomipramine) for 1 week and 3 days now and I have to say it helps quite well with my depression. I take in the evening 75 mg which does not make me tired. I have side effects with great effort I freeze and have cold sweat, initially circulatory problems when stooping and muscle twitching I have noticed. But it will take even further, take it only recently.

    Side effects: Muscle twitching; Sweats

    Anafranil for Anxiety disorders; Depression

    The side effects were extreme at the beginning (4-5 weeks). Symptoms: sweats, tremors, dizziness, palpitations, extremely high blood pressure, sharp chest pains, headaches, ear noises, heart stumbling, insomnia. Already existing complaints, such as anxiety and panic, tremors, palpitations and heart stumbling and insomnia, were initially reinforced by this. Only after about 4 weeks did I gradually notice a temporary decrease in the symptoms. I later decided to undergo psychotherapy. It was only later that I realized that the drug is only half worth it without therapy. Through this medication, the symptoms of the disease are relieved to release some of the symptoms in the head and then targeted to oneself work, of course, by the expert help of a psychotherapist. Anafranil + Therapy under medical supervision have brought me back to life.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Tremble; Sweats

    Anafranil for Anxiety disorders; Depression

    Side effects that disappeared after a few days or weeks: nausea, tiredness, drop in blood pressure when getting up, photosensitivity, tachycardia Side effects during the entire period of administration: weight gain (25kg in approx. 6 months at a dose of 100mg), dry mouth (isolated), sweating ( isolated), nightmares / lively dreams (partly pleasant). Unlike all ‘modern’ antidepressants, Anafranil always gave me a sense of security. It’s the only AD that really helped me (I was allowed to try sertraline, duloxetine, fluoxetine and mirtazapine – all flops). Weaning was on the whole problem-free (slight sensations in the case of rotational movements of the eyes).
