Tofranil Uses for Depression
Depression is more than just "feeling sad". Common symptoms of depression include: Changes in sleep (sleeping too much or not enough); eating too much or too little (and weight gain or weight loss); having little interest in things that you used to enjoy; physical pain; feeling hopeless or worthless; suicidal thoughts.
Tofranil has been proven in large clinical trials to help adults with depression. However, antidepressants (including Tofranil) can take several weeks to begin working. Often, the physical symptoms of depression (such as pain or changes in sleep) will improve first -- sometimes very quickly. It usually takes a few weeks before significant changes in mood occur. Therefore, it is important to give Tofranil a chance to work before becoming discouraged.
However, for more details you could also speak to the doc/pharmacist, please take care & be safe & well.
