Tofranil should be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat. The tablets should also be kept in an airtight container.
Keep Tofranil and all medications out of the reach of children.
When taking it for depression, if you do not take your Tofranil as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you usually take your dose at night, you may not want to make up the missed dose, due to the risk of drowsiness if the medication is taken during the day. Also, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
When taking it for bedwetting, if your child misses a dose of Tofranil, skip the missed dose and continue with the usual schedule. Do not make up for a missed bedtime dose during the day.
