Is anafranil (clomipramine) a good drug for depression and agroraphobia, what does who u recommend?

Anafranil (clomipramine) I reserve it for patients with ocd who do not respond to ssris or luvox, (fluvoxamine) due to side effects. Best to review with your doc.
It is a . Cyclic antidepressant known for long time and it is a good medical treatment. I just do not think that the combination with alcohol is indicated. Talk it over with the dr. Who prescribed the drug.

Hi. First sorry for my english. I was taking 10mg anafranil (clomipramine) for 9 years to control my panic attack and taking 40 mg zedprex for 5 months to control depression. My doctor cut anafranil (clomipramine) last month?

Why? there is not enough information in your question to say why he cut it. In general, the principal with medication management is to find the least amount that works. It is OK to ask your doctor why. Read more...
Probably a wise move. Zedprex may help the panic. Anafranil (clomipramine) & zedprex are classed as serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Some anafranil (clomipramine) converts to norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor in liver via enzyme 2D6. Zedprex slows anafranil (clomipramine) metabolism/conversion. If anafranil (clomipramine) 10 mg was effective, zedprex could make anafranil (clomipramine) ineffective or toxic via altered liver metabolism. If panic recurs call MD or consult halthtap.

Please discuss this with your dr, you may want to go back on it if it was really so helpful to you. Sometimes one does not realize how much a med is doing until they go off it.... Read more...
