Antidepressant Medications

What is Clomipramine?

Clomipramine belongs to a group of medicines called tricyclic antidepressants. It helps ease the symptoms of a number of different conditions.

Depression: the exact cause of depression is not known. It can develop for no apparent reason or it may be triggered by a life event such as a relationship problem, bereavement, or illness. With depression you have a consistently low mood and other symptoms severe enough to interfere with your normal day-to-day activities.

Phobias and obsessions: a phobia is strong fear or dread of a thing or an event, which is out of proportion to the reality of the situation. Obsessions are unpleasant thoughts, images, or urges that keep coming into your mind. Both of these can cause feelings of distress and can prevent you from getting on with normal activities.

Cataplexy associated with narcolepsynarcolepsy is a long-term problem which affects sleep. It is often associated with a condition called cataplexy. Cataplexy is the word used to describe a sudden loss of muscle control, often triggered by an emotion such as anger or excitement. This can cause you to drop things or to stumble.

Clomipramine can help ease the symptoms in each of these conditions. It is thought to work by interfering with brain chemicals (such as serotonin) which may be involved in causing the symptoms.
