Were you looking for information about Clomipramine? Clomiprimine is a common misspelling of clomipramine.
A healthcare provider may prescribe clomipramine hydrochloride (Anafranil®) to treat the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is thought that the drug works by helping to keep certain chemicals (norepinephrine and serotonin) stay in the brain longer, which can help relieve the symptoms of OCD.
The medication comes in capsule form and is taken one to three times a day. Because this product can interact with other medications, it is important to tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
