Unhappy Alternative to clomipramine

Hi All

I havent been here since 2010! Finally got my medication right! Well, Clomipramine has been my lifesaver, the only problem is Ive put on 6 stone in 4 years!

Does anyone know of any alternative that will not make me put on more weight?

Thanks for reading this and I hope you can help,

Not overly helpful, but if it works stick with it.. A SNRI might be suitable.

Re: Alternative to clomipramine

Tend to agree - finding the right med is a lifesaver - if it ain't broke don't fix it!

Obviously the weight issue is getting you down - could you try just cutting back - I know with myself I will go back to Slimming World which I find brilliant but want to get better first. Not overly helpful but stick with the med and then address the weight issue. Try and eat more fruit and veg, etc, I know easier said done!

Good luck

Re: Alternative to clomipramine

Can I ask what you are on clomipramine for?

I have a friend who used it very well for OCD and he has since moved onto Paroxetine with success.

But I kind of agree, with Dan and Laura.. if it works, stick with it if you can, and possibly find other ways of dealing with the weight issue.
