I was thinking about asking the doc for a prescription. I have panic disorder, social phobia and ocd. I've tried numerous SSRI's and taking benzos to get by. Has anyone had success with Anafranil and how bad are the side effects?
I found it have possible benefits on SA but i quit because i was gaining weight
Side effects wise it gave me a head ache the first day and that was it
If anyone found effexor beneficial and it pooped out then i would suggest Anafranil as they feel very similar to me and both are SNRI
I have taken anafranil for 20 yrs. In the uk its called clomipramine. I have not had bad side affects except a dry mouth and get dizzy if stand up too quickly,also slight blurred vision if you go for an eye test and have to read the small print on screen. It helps with anxiety,ocd and maybe social anxiety i cant really tell as am still socially anxious!
