Anafranil (Clomipramine)

my psychiatrist wants to try me on this and get me off of (Remeron) Mirtazapine which has been rubbish.

Any views on Anafranil?

Anafranil saved me from suicide and has helped keep me out of a psychiatric ward!!!
It's given me a certain quality of life that no other medication has matched, so far anyway.
Although now, my 15th year on the drug, it does seem to have lost
some efficacy, but the ocd is bearable.

It took me some time for my body to get used to it, but i eventually
did. I was actually on an extremely low dose for a year and a half
but got too sick and had to increase the dose.

I used to take 12.5mg (half a 25mg tablet) and increased it slowly
up to 125mg. That took me more than 6 months! So if the side effects
are too bothersome increasing it slowly is the key.

Good luck and be patient.
