> Well.. I won't be much help. I just added Anafranil (Clomipramine) to my meds a few days ago, just a low dose - 25 mg. So far I've noticed two side effects - mild dry mouth and drowsiness that 8 hours of sleep doesn't help.

That is par for the course with TCA's, one should
expect this to happen more than hope it does not.
Both SE's should decrease with time. However, be careful not to incease too fast, as TCA's hove very long half lives. If you take too much today it will effect you for days after & often you don;t know you have moved the dose up too fast till you are dry as a bone and sleeping 20 hours a day !

I loved the drying effect, it was the first time my allergies were in control & after many years on different antihistamines (the pre Seldane days)
I was less effected by the dry mouth effect.
