Yeah, clonidine can be used off label for anxiety and sometimes insomnia. You might check your blood pressure on the desipramine. If it's on the high side, this might be more of a case for something like clonidine.

Clonidine activates a receptor (alpha-2) that puts the break on norepinephrine release. It is often used in combination with stimulants (for ADHD) to enhance the effect and offset some of the anxiety / side effects.
