A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Tofranil belongs to the group of drugs called tricyclic antidepressants. It is used in the treatment of depression. In addition, it is also used in children 6 years of age or older to treat night-time bed wetting (enuresis). When depression is treated with Imipramine tablets, it helps the patient by improving his mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level. It also assists in restoring interest in daily life. It achieves these results by restoring the balance of neurotransmitters of the brain like norepinephrine. In cases of bed wetting, Tofranil acts by blocking the effect of specific natural substances, namely, acetylcholine, on the urinary bladder. But generally, Tofranil for anxiety controlling purposes has been very effective.

Tofranil is taken orally, with or without food. Its usual dosage is 1-4 tablets daily or as prescribed by your doctor. The dose is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. An entire dosage of Tofranil may be given at bedtime if daytime drowsiness occurs.
In children, the dose is adjusted according to body weight. Imipramine should be given 1 hour before bedtime. In case of bed wetting earlier in the night, separate doses, one in the afternoon and one at bedtime may be given.
