Questionable: Anafranil (clomipramine) is fda pregnancy category c which means that it could cause risk to fetus. It isn't well studied. Discuss with both your obstetrician & your psychiatrist. Benefits would need to outweigh risks.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
