In severe cases, the daily dose can be increased to a maximum of 250 mg.

Over the next few weeks, the dose is gradually increased to a daily dose of either 200 mg or calculated at 3 mg / kg, whichever is lower.
The initial daily dose of the drug Anafranil® for children aged 5-8 years is 20-30 mg; for children aged 9-12 years - 25-50 mg; for children older than 12 years - 25-75 mg.
