How should I take Tofranil/Imipramine?

How much medicine you take and how often you take it depend on many factors, including the condition being treated and the age and weight of the patient. If you have any questions about the amount and/or frequency of the medicine you are taking, talk with your health care provider. Once symptoms are controlled, it may be necessary to continue therapy for several months to lessen the chance of relapse. For childhood bedwetting, this medicine should be given 1 hour before bedtime. Doses above the recommended dose do not enhance effects and tend to increase side effects. In early night bedwetters, the drug is more effective given earlier and in divided doses (eg, half the dose in midafternoon, and the other half at bedtime). Do not use in combination with an MAOI or within 14 days of discontinuing treatment with an MAOI. After stopping this medicine, wait at least 2 weeks before starting an MAOI. This medicine may take 1 to 3 weeks to become effective. Using this medicine with alcohol or other central nervous system depressants (eg, pain relievers, sedatives, antihistamines) may cause added drowsiness. This medicine may cause drowsiness or blurred vision. Use caution while driving or performing other tasks requiring mental alertness, coordination, or physical dexterity. This medicine may cause sensitivity to sunlight. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Use sunscreens and wear protective clothing until tolerance is determined. Taking this medicine at bedtime may help reduce side effects (eg, daytime drowsiness). Discuss this possibility with your doctor. Notify your doctor if dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision, increased heart rate, impaired coordination, difficult urination, excessive sedation, or seizure occur. Notify your doctor if you experience drowsiness, dizziness, or dizziness or lightheadedness when rising quickly from a seated or lying position. Your doctor may need to reduce the dose. Notify your doctor if you develop a fever or sore throat. Lab tests may be required. Be sure to keep appointments. Do not use alcohol while taking this medicine. Diabetic patients may experience loss of glucose control. Be prepared to monitor blood sugar more often. Supervise the medicine carefully at home.
