Clomipramine vs. Citalopram vs. Milnacipran

Posted by davidh on November 23, 2001, at 13:11:19

Has anyone had any experience comparing these drugs in the treatment of OCD? Clomipramine was quite effective for me, but carried with it an intolerable level of side effects.

I am currently on milnacipran (Ixel in Europe, Toledomin in Japan), but am curious about whether this or Citalopram (Celexa) is the most effective.

Thank you,
David

I have no experiences with OCD but in liturature serotoninergic medications like ssris and clompipramine are more effective than drugs with other mechanisms. Usually ssris have to be given in higher doses for OCd than depression (e.g. paxil up to 60 mg).

Hi David. I just noticed your post re: Clomipramine, and I wondered if you could tell me what side effects you got? I am on it at the moment, and it makes me feel very strange. Also, I've been "twitching", and wonder if the drug is responsible for this. Any info would be very helpful!

TIA.

I can I ask what are the usual dosages prescribed for OCD? What personal experiences have you had
with clomapramine and ocd?
