About clomipramine 

Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant that restores the balance of certain substances, such as serotonin, in the brain.

Clomipramine is used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Clomipramine is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation under brand names, including Anafranil.

Clomipramine may be prescribed as a capsule. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed clomipramine, complete the entire course of the antidepressant unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the antidepressant may not fully treat your mental illness.

Clomipramine uses

There is one FDA-approved use for clomipramine, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online medical professional may prescribe it for the following reasons.

It’s also possible that your healthcare provider may prescribe it for other reasons not listed here. Ask your online doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about why a medication is prescribed.

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

    Clomipramine is FDA-approved for treating OCD. It helps decrease unwanted or recurrent thoughts (obsessions) and reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions).

  • Other mental health conditions

    Clomipramine may also be prescribed off-label to treat depression, anxiety, panic disorder, panic attacks, and body dysmorphic disorder.

Clomipramine side effects

The side effects associated with taking clomipramine are typically mild. Most clomipramine side effects are associated with tiredness. Clomipramine has some common side effects. They may include:

    • Feeling dizzy, drowsy, or tired

    • Tremors or jerking muscle movements

    • Changes in appetite or weight

    Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

    • Low sodium levels

    • Blurred vision

    • Urinary retention or trouble urinating

    • Worsening depression or suicidal thoughts

    Ask your doctor for medical advice if you notice any adverse reactions, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. In rare cases, antidepressant drugs can cause serotonin syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition.

    The use of clomipramine in children younger than under age 10 is not advised.

How to take clomipramine

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your clomipramine prescription. Be sure to read your prescription label and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

Clomipramine can come in different forms and doses, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. For adults and young adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder, the starting dose is typically 25 mg orally once daily. The maintenance dose may be increased to 100 mg orally once daily.

Do not stop taking clomipramine without your doctor's recommendation. Clomipramine withdrawal may lead to withdrawal symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and headache.

What to avoid while taking Clomipramine

Clomipramine has 746 drug interactions. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other medications or supplements, as well as over-the-counter drugs. 

Possible drug interactions with clomipramine include:

  • Other drugs that cause drowsiness, including sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and opioid medication

  • Tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors

  • Anti-seizure medication

Avoid drinking alcohol while taking clomipramine, as alcohol may lead to an increased risk of adverse reactions. Tell your doctor immediately if you experience uneven heartbeats, unusual tiredness, confusion, or lightheadedness.

Medication alternatives to clomipramine

If your healthcare provider prefers to put you on another treatment, they may suggest other tricyclic antidepressants or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in another drug class. Here are some common doctor-recommended alternatives based on your health issue:
