    Lightbulb just started anafranil (clomipramine)

    hi have just started anafranil 10mg have taken it for a week now with no real side effects.will be going up in dosage overthe next few weeks. i am quite nervous as i have had a hard time on seroxat and prozac and i am worrying about upping the dose of anafranil that it might flip me out so to speak.seroxat seemed to open a door inside my head and flooded my brain with intusive thoughts.Hoping anafranil will help.WOULD LIKE TO HEAR OFF ANYONE USING THIS DRUG. Thanx chad.

    Re: just started anafranil (clomipramine)

    Hi..
    I did anafranil 7 years ago and i had a terrible terrible time on it and to be honest that is why i haven't tried any other meds since.
    I took the first one and within a couple of hours i had passed out and was feeling horrendously nauseaous. It scared me because i had a 1 year old baby crawling around on the floor while i was out of it.
    I carried on taking it for a couple of days, but i couldn't eat and for someone with a history of eating disorders i really couldn't afford to lose any more weight.
    It took me about 2 weeks to feel better and i only took them for 4 days!

    Its good to see you are doing well on it
    Not all meds suit every person...

    Panic attacks started in 1992. 1998 i became agoraphobic which lead into being room bound. Couldn't even get upstairs. 2002 i started getting better, able to drive and work. 2005 i became house bound again. 2009 i have been making SLOW progress, still not able to go anywhere alone, but my journeys are getting longer. No where near 'normal' but at least i can go out.

    Re: just started anafranil (clomipramine)

    i dont mind you asking, its what we are all here for. sharing information and helping each other
    currently on 50mg a day altho i have been on higher. i have been on this for about 3 weeks altho before now i have been on them for over a year.
    i get a reaction pretty quick virtually overnight.
    but as i say everyone's illness is different so everyone's treatment is different. i am being treated for agoraphobia and depression. also a family from hell but the tabs wont fix them i need to fix my head to deal with that problem.

    Re: just started anafranil (clomipramine)

    Anafranil is a good antidepressant which as been in use for over 30 years, so most side effects are well documented. The success rate of Anafranil is also very high, with most people recovering from a depression within a period of 6 months. It does however take awhile to be completely effective, so just hang in there until the med take effect.

    I was on them for over 6 years at one time, and they helped me until I could sort my mind out, so I didn't have to take any medication.
