Healthcare providers will consider several factors before prescribing clomipramine. The clomipramine dosing amounts are generally determined based on your age, existing medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may also be taking. The recommended starting clomipramine dose for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder is 25 mg once a day, preferably at bedtime. Your healthcare provider may slowly increase your clomipramine dose.
