Hi, I have been prescribed Clomipramine 25mg per day to treat Borderline Personality Disorder, Paranoid Personality Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Syndrome. I take the Clomipramine at night-time but the problem I have been having is that I find it very difficult to get out of bed and usually sleep to at least 10.30am or 11.00am. I feel tired for most of the day and I used to be quite active (cycling, running, gym, dog walking, etc).

How long does the hypersomnia take to wear off?

Also, I read that Clomipramine can cause constipation; this was a problem when I was on Sertraline (Zoloft), but the constipation doesn't seem too bad at the moment. Does anyone have any tips for trying to reduce the side effect of constipation later on when I double the dose (I must go up soon to a higher dose).

thanks
