What dosage of Clomipramine is typically prescribed for treatment?

Patients taking Clomipramine are generally started on a low dose, to be administered throughout the day with meals and slowly increased as you begin to get used to the medication.

Once you have finalized what dose is right for you, it can be taken once per day; it is recommended to take it at bedtime because daytime drowsiness can occur.

The common daily dose for adults taking clomipramine will be no more than 250 milligrams per day, for children 10 years or older and teenagers it will be 200 milligrams per day

When taking this medication, it is important to strictly follow your prescribed dose: do not stray from this amount or take it more often than you are intended to. Taking more than the prescribed can increase your risk of unwanted and often more serious side effects such as seizures. The dose you will be given will be based on your current medical condition and response to therapy treatment.
