Hi Maria
I have been on a v low dose of clomipramine for 5 years (20mg) however in last few months the anxiety has gone through the roof. I have upped slowly to last 2 days at 80mg and I feel dreaadful, sickly anxious nervous, in fact all the things I was feeling a few months ago. My Mood is a little better but I feel own because I am so anxious and I don't want to talk to people (which is not me). I am going to try to stick it out but it is hard. How are you getting on?

Hi Will
I am currently weaning off clomipramine onto sertraline, however the only side effect I ever got from clom was constipation and to be honest I was glad as anxiety had me on the toilet! It was a long time ago when I went on it, so I think Maria1111 would be the best person to ask. She has also started a Facebook page for clomipramine support - although there aren't many of us about!

How do I get on the Facebook page starting Clomipramine tonight at 50 mgs switching from 75 mgs amitriptyline

The page link is

Don't be afraid to take it. If you are already on a TCA, then I shouldn't think that the new one will be tremendously different for side effects, but I am not an expert!
