Clomipramine is a type of tricyclic anti-depressant used to treat a range of conditions including depression, phobias, obsessional disorders and cataplexy.
It is sold under a variety of brand names including Anafranil®.
Clomipramine is sometimes used to treat people with autism who have mental health problems. It may also be used to treat people with ASD who have other problems, such as repetitive behaviours or social deficits.
We are currently reviewing the research evidence on the use of clomipramine for people with autism. We have not yet formed an opinion on clomipramine but we do have an opinion on Anti-Depressants as a whole.
