    Worth the side effects -- dry mouth, constipation. Keeps me balanced and employed -- would be a problem without it.

    I have bipolar and OCD. As soon as I started this medicine i went into hypomania. I will go for a couple days not being able to sleep then ill sleep for a couple days in a row. It has been a nightmare. Cycling between mania and depression every other day. Not to mention the constant twitching in my legs and feet that i didn't have before i started this medicine

    I have severe OCD, have taken so many different classes of meds w/o much relief. Doctor just raised dose to 75mg a week ago- had reaction with fast heartbeat, crazy loud buzzing in ears, muscle pain; along with ongoing side effects of dry mouth, flushing, sore throat and anorexia. This med did not help alleviate OCD for me.

This has been a wonderful drug for me. I have side effects (very dry mouth and constipation), but the results are worth it to me.

    This drug has been a life saver for me. I was in a very dark place with severe OCD and anxiety. I'd tried numerous other medications that didn't work and I had lost hope of getting better. Within 4 weeks of taking clomipramine I saw improvements. It's amazing. I really didn't think anything was going to help me but this drug proved me wrong. The only downside is the side effects, b ...
