What is Clofranil-50?
Clofranil works by increasing the amount of the natural substance serotonin in the brain to help maintain mental balance. The active ingredient clomipramine belongs to a group of medication called tricyclic antidepressants (TCA). It can be used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) symptoms such as having unwanted thoughts and the urge to perform repeated tasks. Some people may also use the drug in the treatment of depression.

How is Clofranil-50 used?
Clofranil should be taken as directed by a doctor, usually 1 to 3 times daily. Take the tablets with a meal along with plenty of water to prevent an upset stomach. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the condition of the patient as well as their response to the medication. Continue with regular checkups as the doctor may alter the dosage after several weeks of treatment for maximum benefits. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the medication may cause severe withdrawal symptoms.
