What is Tofranil?

Tofranil, also known as imipramine, is a medication used to treat depression. This drug is often used in combination with other therapies for the treatment of bed-wetting in children. Imipramine is used to improve mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level. Imipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant that helps restore the balance of natural substances, like norepinephrine, in the brain.

How does Tofranil treat bed-wetting?

Imipramine aids in the treatment of bed-wetting in children by blocking the effect of acetylcholine (a natural substance in the body) in the bladder.

Make sure to always read the patient information and instructions before using this medication. Always follow your doctor’s directions.

  • This drug is taken by mouth with or without food.
  • Tofranil is typically taken 1-4 times a day. If you experience drowsiness taking this drug, your doctor may direct you to take the entire dose once at bedtime.
  • When used in children for bed-wetting, this drug should be taken an hour before bed. If your child wets the bed earlier in the night, you may separate the drug into a dose in the afternoon as well.
  • Continue taking this medication even if you feel well.
  • This drug may not work as well if children take this drug for an extended period of time. Talk to your doctor if the medication stops working.
