Hi, the following symptoms are known side effects of Anafranil: shortness of breath or troubled breathing, sleeplessness, tightness of chest or wheezing, trouble sleeping, this may not be the right medication for you, as already suggested. Please speak with your doctor to decide what next step to take...
Some side effects will stay; while I heard some will go away. Not sure how long they will take though, but i think waiting is worth a try. When I took anafranil for 3 months, I had dry mouth, decreased libido, and tremors. Within the 3 months, they did not go away. I switched to Zoloft and my OCD got worse so I am starting Anafranil again since it helped so much. Like you, I am hoping that the side effects go away or do no come at all. Wish you luck
