The active ingredients in Anafranil are clomipramine hydrochloride, which is a tricyclic antidepressant, and sodium chloride. It is available in the form of tablets, capsules, and a liquid solution.
Anafranil has several synonyms, including Anafranil SR, Clomipramine, Clomipramine HCl, Clomipramine Hydrochloride, and Gen-Clomipramine.
Anafranil is generally well-tolerated, but it can cause side effects such as dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision, dizziness, and weight gain. It is important to discuss any potential side effects with a doctor before taking Anafranil.
