Firstly, I'm pleased to hear she has been feeling and looking better on this treatment. Tofranil is an old antidepressant, which is used in low dosea in children for bedwetting, which it helps. I am not used to using it for other problems in children. Depression does occur in kids, but then one would choose from a wider range of antidepresants ; and for anxiety / stress, I would prefer a more psychological approach and would consult a child psychologist. I have not come across significant prob;ems in stopping such medication in children after a few months
