The Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Clomipramine Withdrawal and Tapering Help
Anafranil (Clomipramine) is a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) that was developed in the early 1960s by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Geigy, known today as Novartis. Anafranil is a derivative of Imipramine, an earlier generation tricyclic.
Tricyclic antidepressants, including Clomipramine, were among the first drugs used for depression. Clomipramine has significant side effects and can be especially dangerous in overdose. Tricylics seems to block the reabsorption of Serotonin and Epinephrine back into nerve cells after the neurotransmitters are released into the synapse (a structure that permits the nerve cell to pass an electrical signal). This forces both Serotonin and Epinephrine levels higher in the brain, but prevents these critical neurotransmitters from recirculating throughout the body. Both Serotonin and Epinephrine are essential for gastrointestinal health, blood platelets, the central nervous system, cardiovascular region, respiratory system, liver, and adrenal glands. This may explain why the side effects and withdrawal symptoms of Clomipramine are so widespread.
Anafranil (Clomipramine) is approved by the FDA but only for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD but is used off-label for depression, panic disorder, body dysmorphic, premature ejaculation, chronic pain, enuresis (bedwetting) and trichotillomania (hair pulling). Clomipramine is distributed in breast milk and nursing is not recommended while taking Clomipramine due to the congenital defect risk to the newborn.
Clomipramine withdrawal symptoms can occur during gradual and particularly when abruptly stopping. It is strongly recommended to taper slowly yet too many find the withdrawal symptoms interfere with every aspect of life and require assistance to calm the nervous system throughout the process.
